We stayed for 9 nights in this well-equipped studio apartment with an air conditioning unit (for additional cost) and would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. The room we stayed in is right in front of the room where the manager is.
Location: The apartments are in an ideal location for proximity to tourist sites in Pest: 2 minute walk to Kalvin Ter, where there is a metro, bus (public transport is very efficient); approximately 5-7 minute walk to the Duna River, Corvinus University, Central Market; approx. 2 minute walk to Raday utca where there are good restaurants at reasonable prices and a good currency exchange with much better rates than airport; 2 minute walk to the Hungarian National Museum.
Cleanliness: The room was perfectly clean when we arrived, and they cleaned it again to an immaculate state once during our stay (they even vacuumed the window sill!).
Noise: It is very quiet in the room with the windows closed. We almost never heard anything from adjoining rooms or the hallway during the whole stay.
Kitchen: Comes with nearly anything you could need—coffee pot and tea pot, toaster, pots/pans, two burner electric stove, etc. We bought food from Central Market and the small corner store on Raday utca and made breakfast and snacks here. Not much counter space.
Other stuff: The TV in our room was a small box tube, but there are lots of channels (mainly in Hungarian, but a few in English, Italian, Romanian, French). Two twin beds in our room; they are quite small beds, hardly room to roll over, but we slept just fine on them.
Handicap Accessibility: The apartments are not very handicap accessible, as there are about 5 few stairs to get up before you get to the lift/elevator and the size of the shower is small by US standards.
