My mother and I stayed at Loft V65 from 1 October to 22 October, 2015 and we could not have been happier with the choice we made.
It was her first visit to Budapest and I, having spent a lot of time in Budapest and other parts of Hungary over the past twenty years, wanted to make her first visit as special as possible. The only hotels I have ever stayed in in Hungary have been small, family run hotels in cities far outside Budapest so renting a flat was a given. On my first few visits, I stayed with my husband's family and that has made me quite picky about the flats I rent when I visit. I married into a Hungarian family and if you've never had the pleasure of being welcomed into a Hungarian home I can tell you that you are really missing out.
When looking online and combing through the huge assortment of flats we had to choose from, there was a certain feel that I was looking for that you can't find among the list of amenities. The moment I saw Loft V65, I knew this was the place from which I wanted to introduce Budapest, the city I had fallen in love with twenty years ago, to my mother. It looked like a home in the photos and it looks exactly like that in person. Better, even.
The flat is located on a walk-street filled with every store, restaurant, and bar you could possibly want. A short walk away is the Vásárcsarnok (the Grand Market Hall) which is the largest indoor market in Hungary. There are three tram lines just blocks away that will have you to metro stations in a matter of minutes. From there, the city is yours. Closer to home are the conveniences of twenty-four hour groceries, corner stores, cafes, you name it and it's there.
Everything you could want inside the flat is there with one exception - I would have really liked to have had a clothes washer but this was easily remedied by the pick-up and drop-off service that can be arranged and was worth the price to not have to deal with laundry while on vacation. Everything else was there, though, to include a dishwasher (which is a surprising luxury!), to make this place feel like home.
Everything was perfectly clean and well kept and the owner was extremely attentive to us and answered every question I had promptly and even emailed often to see how we were getting along in the city and to recommend things to see and restaurants to visit.
I absolutely would stay there again. My mom? She kept saying she wanted to buy the flat and move there!
