The location of this apartment is great. Just around the corner from the Opera House and a Hop On Hop Off tour bus stop. Just a short walk to the New York Cafe. There is a currency exchange across the road and a supermarket a few metres down the street. The cake shop a few doors up is also worth a visit. The apartment is as grand as the photos on the site suggest. There is a separate laundry room with dryer, washing machine and room to put up the portable clothes airer so you don't need to have drying clothes hanging in the living room.We had no troubles with internet access. Sandor who met us when we arrived was as helpful as you could wish even arranging our transport to the rail station later in the week and providing suggestions of places to eat.
Myself, husband and son and another couple rented this apartment for 4 nights. Firstly the apartment is unbelievably 100 times better than the photo's! It is absolutely huge, the length of the 2 connecting bedrooms together is longer than my bungalow! The decor is amazing, particularly the chandeliers and it is equipped with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable relaxing stay, including air conditioning, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer, hairdryer etc etc. It was ideal for 2 families as there are two bathrooms linked to bedrooms located at either end of the property giving you plenty of privacy. The beds were massive (one being bigger than an english superking size!) and were so comfortable. Every thought has gone into the finishing touches in the apartment from the ornaments down to the reed diffusers. The apartment is located in downtown Budapest on the main road which is full of bars, restaurants, supermarkets and bureau de change's. Do not be put off by the entrance/outside of the apartment, it does not represent what is behind the doors. All main tourist attractions are within walking distance, most roughly 20-30 minutes walk away. Sandor who greeted us when we arrived was a really nice chap, very friendly and knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. Chris the owner sent us a really helpful email full of information about local restaurants etc, 2 of which we tried out and were very impressed with. Chris arranged taxi's from airport and back again for us which was great and we were able to leave our bags at the apartment until our flight on the last day. I cannot rate this apartment and it's location highly enough and the price was just unbeatable. We looked at the presidential suite at the famous New York Boscolo Hotel over the road and it was not a patch on this beautiful apartment. I would absolutely stay here again.
The apartment is even more splendid than it appears in photos... Centrally located, just a short walk to Metro station with plenty of cafes, shops and a supermarket nearby. I travel alone so I had the luxury of rambling through this beautiful place, changing bedrooms at whim! I selected this apartment because of its beauty and affordability! Why stay in a hotel or small apartment when for this reasonable price, you can have such space and luxury!!
The kitchen (although I usually don't cook when on vacation) is fully equipped and the laundry room is a definite plus! Sandor, the gentleman who oriented me to the apartment, had lots of info at hand for the traveler. He even met up with me the day before my departure to walk me to the train station to purchase my ticket to Vienna "so I wouldn't have any difficulty."
I travel la lot, and I must say... This place is a gem!!
Spectacular apartment in great location. Stunning rooms, high ceilings - I booked because of the chandeliers - wonderful. Thanks to Sandor for making the trip so easy and great recommendations. So worth it!
Great apartment ... Sandor was brilliant .. cake and flowers and bottle of wine for lady who was 70 in our party .. Would highly recommend it's beautiful and has all you need .
