Reviews for St. George Residence
The cleaning in the room was absolutely shocking as was the breakfast and the service! When I told them about it all she could do was shrug! Shame for the amount of money paid and the wonderful building and surroundings.
We absolutely loved staying at the St George Residence. On arrival, we were informed that we would have to change rooms for our last night, as they had a wedding party coming in, who had booked out the entire hotel. We were offered an upgrade to a suite for the first 2 nights, and then the attic room for the last night. The suite was beautiful and had amazing paintings and marble sculptures throughout. Needless to say, we would have loved to remain there for the entire time, however, the attic room turned out to be wonderful too! It was HUGE and had windows on each side of the room so we had morning and evening sun. Yes, we did have to get our cases up quite a few stairs, but we loved the fact that we had an entire floor to ourselves, and the other guests would never have guessed we were even there. We were also offered free breakfasts for the inconvenience of moving. The only downside of staying here is no proper shower (just a claw-foot bath and a shower head you had to hold), but I believe other rooms do have showers available. Buda itself is beautiful and very old worlde, quite different from Pest. There is a number 16 bus every 5 mins or so that takes you down to Pest for a minimal fee, or a taxi will take you down for 3000 forint. All in all a wonderful stay in a charming part of Hungary - we'd love to come back.

Looks good from the outside. Nice, quiet courtyard for a meal. Food was adequate but nothing special. They would not serve tap water despite 30 deg temperatures. I hate this blatant way of selling you bottled water. When it came to pay, we could not believe a 5 star rated hotel would not take a credit card. They overcharged on the bill, quickly corrected. Paid with cash and left rather disappointed.

From the outside, this looked like a cosy hotel bar. Once inside, it was a little strange, as we had to sit at a table that felt like we were in the breakfast area. Service was pleasant and the drinks were okay, but it wasn't really the experience we were looking for.

very nice location - castle district plenty of interesting places close to the hotel if a room faces the street - opening the window in the evening is out of question - too loud, also you can hear people walking and talking if close to the door the mattres was not very comfy the restaurant- goulash soup was so so, hardly any meat in it and generally not reach it was very strange when I asked for coffee in the morning, got it served in the patio, machiato was served cold... when I asked for a regular machiato my coffee was warmed up... got it so hot then that it was impossible to drink... I was not charged for this but experience was not so good very kind and helpful reception staff
