Overview

The Review

Set along Budapest’s tree-lined Andrassy Boulevard, the Mamaison Andrassy Budapest is a smart base for exploring the city. Its intimate size and residential location make it feel more like a private home than an international hotel. Plus, the Andrassy has the history and character missing from many of the city’s newer five stars. Built in 1937, the property was renovated in 2007, but it retains the Bauhaus and Art Deco style of its original incarnation.

While you won’t find the latest high-tech accoutrements, you will find personalized service, expansive European-style breakfasts (for an extra fee) and the Baraka gourmet restaurant, where chef Norbert Biro serves an East-meets-West menu with a nod to traditional Hungarian flavors. The restaurant’s lush terrace passes a crucial hotel restaurant test, as well: It’s a favorite with scene-making locals.

The area immediately around the hotel is relatively quiet, since it’s mainly home to embassies and large private homes. It’s a short walk to the city’s museums, like the unique Museum of Terror, which traces the effects of communism and socialism on the city. It’s also close to the Opera House, home of the Hungarian National Ballet, and the historic Szechenyi Thermal Bath & Spa complex. Built in 1881 and expanded a century ago, it’s one of the largest spa complexes in all of Europe and a highlight of any trip to Budapest.

Fairly central and comfortable
Reviewed 1 week ago

Stayed here three nights at the end of a tour taking in Prague and Vienna. Friendly welcome by front desk staff and the best thing for me was finding efficient aircon. Previous two hotels it had not been fit for purpose and we had very uncomfortable hot nights (28 in room even next morning). Temperature outside was 31 on arrival but room was set to a very comfortable 24 which I was able to reduce to 22 meaning a good night's sleep.

Room I had (306) was a good size for single traveller and would be fine for a couple with a large double bed. Large bathroom with what has to be the biggest bath I'd ever seen in a standard hotel room. Very deep and may pose a problem for less agile guests stepping in. Good shower attachment over bath. Even a face flannel provided which is extremely rare in European hotels.

Two chairs and and small table together with a long desk style unit with office type chair, drawers and a well stocked mini bar, although prices at the usual high level as other hotels. I was pleased to find a Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee maker, but annoyed to find each capsule used was chargeable (400 Forint). So I didn't bother using this on principal. No free bottles of water as so many other hotels provide either. I would have been perfectly happy with free sachets of coffee and tea bags with a kettle as in many other hotels.

There was a fairly private balcony with two metal chairs and small table. Room overlooked trees so you aren't overlooked, although balconies in other rooms may be less private. I had no problems with noise as room overlooked a side road off Andrassy.

Location, although not right downtown, is close to the historic M1 metro line with a bus line also. Other buses are within an easy walk as is Heroes Square and the Fine Art Museum.

Apart from the niggle over no free coffee/water in room I found this a very pleasant stay. Good breakfast choice, although only one coffee machine to serve all users.

Best experience yet traveling across Europe
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Arrived very late, around midnight, and was greeted immediately upon arrival with a friendly front desk. This hotel goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need to experience budapest. A concierge woman was nice enough to bring up a bundle of feminine products to my room to spare me coming to the front desk. On the way to the thermal baths, which are about a 10 minute walk from the hotel, I was given a tote bag and a towel as I headed out. Top it all off, the cleaning crew was fabulous. They even noticed that I removed the satin top sheet and extra decorative pillows as I can't stand them on my bed when I sleep and took them out of my room for me and made the room even more comfortable and organized. I have been traveling all over Europe for about a month and this was by far my best experience. Great job, Mamaison! I will surely be back soon.

Super hotel with super value for the money!

We stayed here in a double room and can highly recommend this place. Service is as good as it gets in Budapest - very friendly staff, amazing rooms with balcony. The entire place is clean and very welcoming. The room comes with tv, minibar, bathtub and wireless network - all working well. Actually, the only thing I was missing would be complementary water - as the warm days in Budapest requires plenty of fluid.
Breakfast is great, but I would wish they would turn of the music - or find something better - as this posh-new age elevator music is more stressful than comfortable.
Location is excellent - literally less than 100 meter to the most beautiful metro that goes directly downtown. So even though this place is located a great walk outwards, it's no problem as all public transport goes almost just around the corner. Hop-on-off + metro is so close that you don't bother bringing an umbrella even though it rains heavily.
We will definitely pick this place again if possible.

Perfect price and location
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The hotel is very well located in the heart of Budapest. The metro is a 1 minute walk and it connects all of the important objectives. Right across the street is the Korean Embassy and you can walk to the Millennium Square in 10 minutes.

The room was very nice with a large double bed whivh was comfortable. The bathroom had a large jacuzzi and there was a fireplace (electrical) in the living.

The breakfast was very good as well.
A little bit on the pricey side but overall very good.
