Feodorm Apartment is a nice accommodation in the heart of the inner city of Budapest. It is a refurbished apartment with 6 rooms for rent in a residential building located along Bajcsy Zsilinszky utca.
The residential building housing the Feodorm Apartment is just in the corner and is very near Arany Janos Metro Station. There are also nearby food outlets so you will never have to worry about food during your stay. The building also houses a bakery so whenever my friend and I go out, we can smell the waft of freshly baked goods. It's so heavenly!
The apartment itself is not bad. The building may be old with antiquated lift to carry you up on the 3rd floor where Feodorm Apartment is but the apartment has been refurbished so everything there is new.
We had to buzz outside the massive door or gate to the building before we could get it. It wasn't so hard to find because it has a brass number on top of the massive door. Before arriving in Budapest, Feodorm Apartment contacted me to give me instructions on where to find the place and how to get it. We were welcomed with the most friendly and gracious hostess - Hannah. She was the same person who contacted me via email and was very courteous and amiable. I felt so at home in Feodorm right away!
Check out this massive door!
Feodorm does not have any reception area; hence the need to coordinate closely with arrival time so one of the staff can meet you personally to hand the key card and to facilitate the cash payment. Hannah also showed us around the apartment and informed us that we are allowed to bring in food and leave them in the refrigerator as long as they are properly marked. The kitchen is the communal area of the apartment. Each room has their own private bathroom.
The room we booked is a twin room with a view. The view is breath-taking. For 3 nights and 4 days, I had been sleeping and waking to the sight of St. Stephen's Basilica. It's really beautiful!
The bathroom is very spacious and clean too. It was well-stocked with toiletries and if we ever needed one, we just had to check the cupboard in the kitchen for extra stocks.
The air conditioning unit worked well especially during the day when we had to cool down after a long walk outside the hot and humid weather.
The lighting is sufficient.
The bed is comfortable; however, my friend and I found the beds to be a bit tight like it is good for kids but not adults. The pillow is unusually soft and big. I would have preferred standard sized pillows. The comforter was satiny and soft but it kept falling on the floor when I am already in my deep sleep. I also fell 3 times in my bed because I am a fussy sleeper. I prefer my bed to be big.
The wifi is free and can be accessed all over the apartment.
The whole area is very quiet even if the building is facing the main thoroughfare. There are occasional sirens every now and then but there wasn't much noise to be heard.
There is no telephone in the apartment nor in our room.
My recommendation: 5 out of 5
I highly recommend this property to family, couple, solo and even group of travellers since this is centrally located with the basic amenities that is enough to give you a relaxing stay.
The location is perfect and the rate via Booking.com is competitive. I paid AED 545 (inclusive of the taxes) for 3 nights for a twin room with a view. Compared to the other 2-3 stars properties I have checked, Feodorm is still cheaper. Aside from that, Tripadvisor and Booking.com users have given this property a very high rating because of its warm hospitality, clean rooms, generous hosts, perfect location and free wifi usage.
I don't mind staying in this apartment again when I visit Budapest with my family.
I give this property my highest recommendation.
If you are looking for a nice accommodation within reasonable rates and very close to notable touristic landmarks in Budapest, book your stay in Booking.com and choose Feodorm Apartment.
This hotel review is my personal review. I have paid for this stay and in no way sponsored by the property nor Booking.com. I love to book via Booking.com because I always find a very competitive rate or great deals when compared to other booking sites. My opinion is 100% mine and may vary from yours.
