Downtown Apartments Budapest

Reviewed 15 October 2013

This is by far the worst place I've been to. Forget about the pictures, the place you're gonna stay if you book this will look like a Russian Gulag. The building, right behind the parliament, looks like an old soviet prison. Everything is broken and stinks. The room is so tiny you can barely fit in there with your suitcases. The sheets are torn, the bathroom flooded. The only window gives you a great view of the stairs where every sort of drunkard sits to drink and smoke and they can look directly into your room. I had to leave the day after this place and the owner told me that since I couldn't get a refund I had the right to stay for 3 nights of my choice when I wanted to, since I had to pay for my whole 4 days stay. When I tried to get ahold of her (you can only do so by international call, since this place doesn't have an email) she vanished and never answered me. SO basically they stole my money. Don't you go to this place, the price might be low but in Budapest you can find much better accommodations for the same amount of money. Also, the neighborhood is very dark and filled with people you'd never want to meet in a dark alley. Especially if traveling with your girlfriend.

DON'T GO HERE!

Everything is alright, pleasant experience staying there. I even cooked when I was there! There're a couple of supermarket nearby, so are the subway station, tram stop, bus stop. If I was a local resident, I'll definitely purchase a unit there.
The only con will be: the building is rather rundown on the outside. Inside the apartment unit that I was staying is totally different from what you see outside. Don't judge a book by its cover yea? Good luck!

Nice little apartment in a good location, the only problem was the very thin walls and the fact that our room was just opposite reception. We were woken up by in the morning every day - washing machine, receptionist talking on phone, etc. One receptionist seemed to have an argument on her mobile. Apart from that, good value for the price.

These apartments are between Szent István Boulevard and the parliament. So you're in the middle of everything, that's the best thing about the place.

The place is nice, we’ve got a big bed and a room almost entirely furnished with IKEA items. Everything in the place worked and was clean when we got there.

The windows overlook a yard or something that is quite gray and that is not the best part of the room, but then again I used the place mostly for sleeping.

The personnel are kind, although they might be a bit messy and, truly, they need to hire more people. But overall they're fine. You get what you pay for and nothing else.

So, if you're ready to forget some problems with your service this place is a great place to be.
