Occupying a grand, whitewashed 19th-century villa close to Budapest’s City Park, Mirage Fashion Hotel has a neo-Renaissance façade that hides 37 cozy rooms. Opened in November 2012, this brand-new crash pad is modern, uncluttered and comfortably minimal, brightened up by warm tartan fabrics and vintage black-and-white fashion prints.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms are more homey than hip. Beds are firm and are dressed with mirrored headboards and rich burgundy spreads; the neutral palette is snazzed up with color-clash tartan prints and red detailing. Bathrooms are stocked with plenty of signature products but are a little on the plain side.
There’s no restaurant on-site, but a breakfast spread is served in the basement dining room. There are plans to open an alfresco terrace overlooking Heroes’ Square and the leafy City Park later in 2013; in the meantime, the location near Andrássy Avenue puts you within strolling distance of downtown Budapest — and the staff is armed with drinking and dining tips.
How to Get There
We booked for 3 nights and only stayed for 1. The room was ok except for some stains on the sheets and akward shower that was not tall enough for a normal person to stand under. The worst part was the rude and unhelpful front desk staff. We asked some questions about parking and laundry and we got VERY rude and unprofessional replies from the two women at the front desk. It was to the point we did not feel comfortable staying there and checked out. Also, the hotel is based around an eastern medicine theme and they try to sell you on their products which was strange and not a Budapest vibe.
Execellent position.Very close to metro station and thermal baths. Very friendly staff, great breakfast, clean tidy rooms. A cafe next door which is part of the hotel serving good meals and drinks. Would definitely stay there again.
We had a superior room with a balcony looking on to Heroes Square. The room was very spacious and clean. We received a bottle of bubbly which was very welcome. The shower was in the bath which could be a problem for some as the bath was very deep. We weren't overly impressed with the breakfast. The juice was very watery and the fruit salad clearly came from a tin. However it didn't spoil our stay and kept us fuelled until lunch. Note to hotel: please consider helping the environment by using soap dispensers instead of individual bottles!
The hotel is very well located, 50 m from the underground line and just next to the Hero s square. The bed is big and comfortable, the room is clean and the bathroom is big and well equipped as well.
The curtains let light in since the walls were slanted. The reception staff was great and the breakfast staff looked very bored and not friendly at all. The breakfast has a big selection but poor quality. Wifi was great.
Booked for a business trip close to M3 motorway so easy access to where we needed to go. Hotel quirky but suited us. Shower does take a while to warm but this didn't really concern me. Room was clean and staff helpful. Metro 5 mins away and Heroes sq across the road. Perfect for what we needed
