Spacious, very clean and great location
We enjoy our stay in this property. The only recommendation I'll make it will be to have more space fans during the summer time. Orher than that it was great for us
From our written welcome from Mary and Con to our parting words from the property manager, Ezster, we received the best service we could imagine. Coupled with the immaculate apartment and its perfect location for easy sightseeing, our stay couldn't have been better. Thanks to you all.
The property was clean and the kitchen had all that we needed. The beds were comfortable.
The building left a lot to be desired. The central courtyard was a dismal scene with the 8 or so store fronts abandoned. It was also dark There was a locked gate to enter and exit the courtyard, then another locked gate to the apartment hallway and we were told to lock each when coming and going. The elevator that went to the second floor was very old and did not smell pleasant (we often held our breath)... smelled of urine. We never saw anyone use the elevator and for good reason. When we used the stairs there was no light at the second floor. If you have any fear of heights, stay away. The ledge from the elevator to the apartment entry was a narrow 36" wide and not fun at night. The lights inside the apartment were extremely low wattage and when I turned on additional lights I found that 10 bulbs were burnt out. Reading in most rooms was near impossible. There were two floor fans but only one worked. The website indicated that there was a dryer...there was no dryer. We requested a pickup at the airport by a person recommend thru the website and gave our pictures along with arrival information to him before leaving the USA. He never showed up but sent another person in his place. That person did not meet us as planned...no sign, nothing...he was not at the right terminal despite promises made by our original contact. A very bad experience. I would not recommend this apartment.
On booking our apartment through the website HomeAway all guests are forwarded contact details of Manager and the Owner, telephone numbers, tourist tips, restaurant tips etc., etc. you were e-mailed same on the 4th August for your information and to refer to. The service of the Manager is available to all guests during their stay.
On exiting the lift/stairs on all levels there is a light switch with a red centre, at the right hand side which activates the external lights throughout.
Apologies for the washer/dryer, this was replaced with a washing machine,
and also some of the bulbs.
All Classical buildings have passage ways to individual apartments in a similar manner.
Spacious and we felt right at home.
A blessed retreat close to all the attractions.
Couldn't ask for better location! Situated in the very center of Budapest
This apartment is centrally located, most of the things you want to do or places to visit are either walking distance or a short tram ride away, and the metro is 2 min walk from the apartment.
Around the corner there is an awesome shopping street Vaci utca with some very good restaurants as well.
The apartment itself is very nice and spacious, well appointed and clean. The young lady, Eszter, who met us and showed us to the apartment was very nice and helpful.
The only reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars is the fact that there is no AC ( and it was hot in Budapest during our visit) but when you open the windows at night, you can hear all sorts of noises from the neighbors.
Other than that, very good apartment and I would definitely stay there if in Budapest again. I would also highly recommend it to
My friends or anyone who wants to visit Budapest and needs 2 bedroom apartment.
This was a great apartment for exploring Budapest. It was our first time there and this location allowed us to easily orient ourselves to the city and get everywhere. It is situated in a lively area with great energy yet the apartment was nice and quiet. It also stayed at a comfortable temperature despite very hot weather. It looks exactly as pictured and all arrangements were handled promptly and professionally.
TIPS on restaurants, gastro pubs, transport, shopping etc. etc. will be provided by the Owner via e-mail to Guests on receipt of deposit.
