Having booked for my first time with Travel Republic, we stayed Monday to Friday in a two bedroomed apartment called ‘Lord Residence‘ in Budapest. The pictures online looked great but sometimes these can be deceiving! I was pleasantly surprised! The rooms were as shown in the pictures, they were perhaps a little more tired than they appeared online, with a few chips, bumps and scrapes here and there which is to be expected but all in all we were pleased with our bargain.
Our apartment was on the ground floor with two patio areas, one off the living room and one off the main bedroom. We didn’t use these, visiting in February, the weather was cold and after popping out onto them for a couple of pictures with the kids I found them to be extremely slippy when wet!
Facilities in our apartment included 2 toilets (one separate, one in the bathroom), microwave, fridge, oven, toaster, hob and plates, pots pans etc, iron & ironing board, drying rack, washing machine, over bath shower & hair dryer. The only things missing were wine glasses! It’s just not right drinking wine from a tumbler! The toaster that was initially in the kitchen was actually quite lethal I must say, with a shower of electrical sparks on first use, I’m thankful that I used it first and not the kids who frequently do make their own toast. I took it to reception, where they apologised and put another in later in the day.
Comfort… As I mentioned, we stayed in Feb, cold and snowing outside and noted that in Lord Residence and every where else we visited they have the heating on really quite high (which I loved) if it’s too warm though you can adjust the radiators. One of the biggest down sides of the Lord Residence for me was actually the bed in the main room, it was anything but comfortable, very hard and incredibly noisy, just turning over in the night would give rise to all manner of creaks!
Parking on the street is tricky, you may struggle to get a space, we made use of Lord Residence’s secure underground garage, with security guard, it was €15 per night at the time of our stay, quite pricey but worth it we felt. Not only the garage but the entire building felt very secure, with a security guard at the front desk and coded entry.
Located on the Pest side of the Danube, we found the location to be in easy walking distance of most of the main attractions, high end shops, the Metro, the Jewish Quarter, Danube trips etc..
I wouldn’t say this place was perfect but to be fair I would go back, it was clean, secure and the staff were friendly and helpful.
