Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Golden Stars Royal apartment at November 2008. Having Tomas as our host was wonderful! He was very helpful, provided maps, suggested best local restaurants, pubs etc. At our departure day he arranged us a shuttle back to the airport.

The apartment itself was great, equipped with WIFI and phone. Very clean, very cozy with comfortable bed. The apartment was incredibly peaceful at night. There is a private balcony facing to the small semi-pedestrian street. The building is beautiful with full of history. The entrance gate is georgious! 5-6 years with my family using apartments, but this one was the BEST!

The location just perfect. Being that close to the metro enabled us to quickly stop by 'home' and drop our stuff, take a rest and go on with our sightseeing. Very convenient. There is a mini market right next to the apartment, they sell fresh eggs, cheese, all the freshest dairy you can think of. There is also a bakery shop and vine shop and quite a few number of great cafes and restaurants within a 1 minute walk.

All in all we had great time and definitely will come back! SW.

Our apartment was perfectly located and very comfortable. The apartment was exactly as described. Thom could not have been more accommodating. We spent 4 days in Budapest and we can't wait go return.

A Home away from Home in the Heart of Budapest

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I spent a most enjoyable time in Tom's well furnished, decorated and very well situated apartment just minutes away from the most central highlights of Budapest. In a charming, quiet location just off of the main promenade yet mere minutes to the metro, we were able to either walk or take the very convenient public transit everywhere that we wished to tour. Tom was a most gracious host who went out of his way to help us and see to our comfort. We could not be more happy to recommend his accommodations the next time that you are searching for that special downtown location in Budapest.

Loved the apartment

  • 5 of 5

I truly enjoyed our experience at Tom's apartment. One of the most important things for us was that it is so wonderfully located to everything that you would want to do. The apartment is safe, clean, comfortable,. I am a reader and so I often do not have good reading lights in the bed. The lighting is perfect for reading in bed. It has everything that you could possibly need for a stay in Budapest. Tom also made recommendations as to where to eat that were totally fantastic. He also provided us with a map with all the places that we might want to see and there were guide books in the room as well. The room is attractively decorated and everything is new and in good order. He greeted us with a bottle of wine which was a nice touch. He also arranged for all of our pick ups from the train station and to the airport. All of the drivers came on time and it really made the transition easy. Lastly the apartment feels totally safe and is in a neighborhood where you could feel comfortable walking around at night. You cannot lose by staying at this apartment .

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for six nights, wish it had been longer. Tomas was amazing! Arranged pick-up at the airport, even carried my bag up the 90 steps to the apartment. He showed us around and gave us a bottle of very good Hungarian wine, which we later drank on the little balcony to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

The design, decor, and attention to detail took our breath away. Having a place like this after our long journey was a treat. Pure luxury! The location couldn't have been better. Being able to call our family in the states was a nice feature. Tomas sent us a link to a map showing restaurants he recommended and locations of various sights. This was very helpful.

Tomas came by the day we left, carried my suitcase downstairs, and walked us to the metro to make sure we got on the right one to the train station. So thoughtful and kind!

We look forward to returning for a longer stay next time.

Thank you for everything Tomas...
