“Excellent location and great value for money”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Our second stay at this apartment and yet again we were very pleased to stay there. The Apartment is clean and well equipped, ideally suited for two to four guests, although six can be accommodated. Excellent location close to Margit Island and central to many of Budapest's tourist locations. Gregg was on hand to welcome us and couldn't have been more helpful, we will definitely be staying there again!

The location is very good. A lot of attractions, such as the Parliament, the Promenade and Chain Bridge, are within walking distance. Supermarkets, grocery shops and pastries are just next door. One more good thing is that the apartment is equipped with washing machine. I don't need to bring along with too many cloths or worry about the cloths are damaged by laundry shop.

Talking about the areas for improvement. There is no sign outside the apartment. It is quite difficult to locate it so you need to make sure you remember the exact address, otherwise you will miss it. Also, the apartment is only equipped with one electric fan, try to ask for additional ones when you stay there in summer time.

One last thing is nothing to do with the apartment but departing transportation. We took a pre booked taxi arranged by Greg, the apartment host, to the airport. We found that the driver was crazy. He drove the taxi at over 100 km/h on the road with speed limit 60 km/h and drove on the opposite for taking over even he saw that a car was coming. When we yelled for his crazy driving behavior, he just laughed at us. Thanks god we are safe to home. He may not be representative to show all the taxi drivers, but my advise is to don't put yourself at risk. Try other transportations.

Every mid-summer a few hot-dog days (temperature over 35°C degrees) always come to my hometown Budapest for a week or two. Fortunatelly, all of our apartments are located a century+ old museum piece buildings. Wide brick walls do preserve releatively cool air for the nights for your relaxing. Respectively, on your request we are more than happy to provide extra fans for your convenience. We suggest to sleep while the windows are kept opened midnight time from 10pm - 7am. Don't worry, windows open to an extra quiet courtyard with green plants and flowers providing fresh feel of the air.
Taxi company: due some complaints, now we have changed our standard taxi co agency to a higher quality of service. Your cab will be booked from the official airport taxi company Fotaxi or the Taxi800. This point I do apologize to all guests who were disappointed in any kind of transportation or airport transfer (shuttle or taxi) service in Budapest.

With 5 friends we had a perfect stay in this accommodation!
Everything you need to see and visit is nearby and thus on walking distance.
Greg gave us tips where to go for a real Hungarian meal and other helpful information.
The apartment is renovated by Greg himself and look absolutely great. Everything you need is there. There is no airco, but that is not necessary as the apartment is cool from itself, due to the fact no sun is shining on or inside the apartment

Room Tip: The apartment is quiet due to the fact that it is inside of a apartment bloc. No windows are situate...

It is an elegant place for accommodation, not only for its location but also for the cozy furniture the host has provided. The home-like atmosphere is especially suitable for family or couples in their trip in Budapest.

Room Tip: It is a standalone apartment sited in a common building. The style is more like a home not a hotel.

First, let me say, that I liked staying here and would do so again- Greg via email and Judit upon arrival were very helpful. As per another reviewer, she arranged a taxi for us leaving as well. Have them do this- you will save a lot of money. Both provided a lot of useful information and answered all of our many questions. It is in a great location- very walkable and close to the subway (the blue line is just a few blocks away) and the bus (# 26) stops directly across the street. The river is two blocks east and you will find a bakery and a grocery store nearly at your door.

With this private apartment, you have local neighbors and feel much more authentic rather than finding a room at a chain hotel. Also, they provide a couple fans, but there is no AC, so open the windows from a nice breeze. However, keep in mind you are going by address only to find it. There is no sign with the name to help assure you have found the right place, so i hope this helps:

You enter the apartment from a courtyard after passing through two security code required doors. From the sidewalk, the security keypad is on the wall to the right of the door, which is under a balcony. If you reach the bonsai tree shack (heading toward the river) you have gone too far. Luckily , a very nice gentleman let us in and helped us make a phone call to get our bearings.

I took away a star however, for a few minor concerns:
- as explained above, it is unassuming and not so easy know you are in the correct place
- the wood floors, you should know ahead of time, are very noisy
- in the bathroom, the shower head is handheld (not a fan) and does not stay up on the bar, so you literally have to hold it to use it

Overall, a great experience. Recommended.

Room Tip: There are three apartments available depending on how many people are traveling, but they book well...

Update: Now clear sign, marks on the door bell, apartment building gate: 'Green Dream Apartment'. In the booking confirmation email a detailed explanation and an online map link will be provided to make it easy to get to us.

Furniture, ceiling and deco: wooden stylish decoration, wooden floor (see photos on website) - oh yes, in the GD Light apt the mezzanine probably feels a bit 19th century's like the building itself: built in 1880 (historical renovation, protected by museum law).

Regular minor reparations: As in all holiday rentals, guests change frequently, and some damage and issues are happen. We are committed to resolve and repairing any minor problems of equipments ASAP to solve temporary issues for guests' convenience. Please let us know promptly if any kind of minor unusability and/or inconvenience is noticed.

Natural aircondition: Our apartments are located on the ground-floor in a 130-year old historical stylish building. Wide brick walls guarantee that the apartment won't get heated by the sun too high - or get too cold in the icy winter times. However, there are 1-2 weeks of dog days in every mid-summer here in Budapest with high temperatures. Outdoor temperature on streets: 35-38°C (95-100°F). Even these days you can sleep comfortably in the accommodation. We provide fans, and suggest to keep windows open nighttime.

This was a great choice for three ladies in their early 60's. It was a bright, cosy apt., Greg sent a lovely lady to meet us, and orient us to the apt.and the area....even went to the bank with one of us to get some currency, show us where things were. She brought us a box of tea for morning. The apt. was clean, the beds had lovely linens, and we were so close to everything including the hop on hop off bus. There was a lovely bake shop/tea room just around the corner plus many restaurants recommended. Also Greg went out of his way to search out a walk in medical centre for myself as I had a bad cold, and he had that information on arrival. Would not hesitate to stay there again if I am ever in Budapest! Thank you Greg.

Greg, the owner/operator was in touch with us so that he could greet us upon our arrival - and he is a most gracious and charming host. He helped us with our orientation to the area and also arranged for a taxi to be available on our departure to the airport.
We stayed in a wonderful fully equipped one bedroom apartment, with a full kitchen living room downstairs and then a second floor loft type of arrangement that contained a private bedroom and a lounge/sleeping/sitting area. With the pull-out on the main floor, 3 couples could easily be accommodated, or a family.
The only negative was that the unit was cold as Budapest's central heat system was shut down and the weather was extremely cold.
A very convenient location, and great public transport 1 minute away.
