Marathon Weekend Budapest
Loved this quirky traditionally set apartment close to all amenities.
The weekend was not enough to see all Budapest has to show ,The apartment was clean and functional and good value for the money it cost. Would certainly use again when returning to Budapest
Although the heat was relentless, we had a great time in Budapest. The apartment was clean and safe. Close to the river, restaurants, metro station and entertainment. The owner is a friendly Italian fellow.
Thanks so much TIbor! i hope to you other time!!!!! have a good travell!
Nice place in funky old apartment building
If you travel with a friend who snores like faulty diesel generator and lectures loudly in his sleep this is an ideal place to stay with doors to block the sounds. A loft above the sofas in the livingroom consists of the second bedroom. Also you can probably sleep on the sofa. Clean and sufficiently equipped. There’s a table with several chairs immediately outside the other bedroom where the neighbors come to smoke and gossip in Hungarian. You can probably learn a few words of their oddly unique language if you listen in but at 2 am you might prefer not to, like in my case. I easily restored the quiet but making up my own unique language and fireing off a short but very loud rant in the deepest voice I could produce. It remained nice and quiet for the additional two nights we stayed there. Great central location, pleasant owner who I met and offered some advice as to seal up a leaky shower which he attended to immediately.
Overally really good!
Overally really good, neat, clean, excellent location, spacey etc.
Some little flaws:
-neighbours can still be noisy outside the window
-only one set of keys
-gas stove did not have gas
-slow answers from owner
Well Located and Economical
The apartment in and of itself was fine. Not fabulously equipped but sufficient. The location is very convenient to all attractions and you can walk almost everywhere. The neighbours can be noisy, often until very late as they seem to congregate right outside one of the bedroom windows and that's where they drink and smoke and talk - often loudly. My only complaint about this apartment is regarding communication with both the owner and the manager. First of all, the address we were given for the apartment did not include a building number (it is building number 8, in case you have the same problem). Then when we arrived at the metro station I received a text from the contact person asking when we would be at the apartment. I replied that we were at the subway station and could come right then if it was convenient or we would come at 2:00 as originally arranged. I never received a response. We went for coffee and then went to look for the apartment. That's when we discovered that we did not have a building number. It was nearing 2:00 and we had no idea where to go. Multiple texts and calls to the contact person went unanswered. I then tried all the numbers on the VRBO website for the apartment owner. The calls went straight to voice mail every time. Finally we went to an Irish bar on the street that had Wifi so I could email the owner. I never received a response. At about 3:00 I got another text from the contact person asking where we were and I said we were at the pub. He arrived there shortly. He spoke Spanish and Hungarian but very little English but we were able to communicate generally. At the apartment we tried to get onto the Internet but the posted password was incorrect. He promised that he would contact the owner and text us the password. When we left, 10 days later, we still had not received a text or any communication at all. We looked at the router and discovered the correct password on the back. We noted it and put it overtop of the incorrect information posted on the wall. There were no helpful notes left with regard to the operation of the heat, the dishwasher, or the washing machine. There wasn't a city map or any suggestions for restaurants which are often available in rentals. Overall, while the apartment was satisfactory the communication and the information provided was seriously lacking.
think that i have resolved the problem about the guests of the neighbours and have told that they can"t use these condominial part after 22.If they use it please advise to me (by whatsapp to this number (+57 318 84 96 96 5) or to the administrator.
I think that Marian haven"t seen my answer because always i answer fast to the guests.THe check in is at 14.30 (and i have advise the guest about it) but anyway the administrator have told to me that he was waiting in the apartment from 14 but Marian instead to open the door with the code that i have given to her, was in the pub....About the internet code was write on the table of the living room too.
Maybe the other guest have put it in other part of the apartment.Anyway thank you to tell to the our guests that if don"r see the paper the password is back to the router. Sorry if you think that we wasn"t helpful but why you didn"t write to me by whatsapp too? Really is too much dificul for us to know your dificult if you tell it only on the review and don"t write to us.
Please to other guests to write to me and to the administrator because we can make wrongs but is too much difficult to understand if the guest have some problem if the guest don"t say to us anything.
Great location/price, Ok unit, Terrible neighbors
Unit is in a fantastic location and cheap price. Owner tries to be helpful. WiFi/TV are great.
Unfortunately the neighbors put a table right outside the bedroom window, where they congregate at night (10pm, 2am, varies) and talk & smoke, with the porch light on. Window could therefore not be opened. All led to no sleep. Instead of immediately helping, owner complained that we waited until the 3rd night (1st weeknight) to inform him. But even after informing him, last night was no better.
Unit can also be defined by what is missing: shower curtain, kitchen dish towel, sponge less than 1 year old, climbable stairs to the loft, a clean floor (socks turned black), working kitchen sink (leaked on dishes stacked for drying), fan for airing out unit which smells of neighbors smoke.
If you don't mind night light, noise and smoke, unit is cheap. You get what you pay for. I would not recommend to my friends.
This guest at 1.30 A.M wrote to me by whatsapp and insulted to me because said that other persons made noise.
I answered immediately that she need to speak with these persons and ask their the pleasure of don"t make noise because if others person make noise i can"t go there and i ask to be quiet at 1.30 AM!!
I comprend this persons because was 80 years old, but was absurd that wrote to me during the second night and insult to me for these reason..
Only 1 time the guest had told to me about the noise and if happen it would be enough speak drectely with the persons, also because the neighbors are very educated persons and if they had noise friends maybe would be good for everybody to speak directely.
But i don"t want say more things for respect for the elderly persons also if they was really too much rudes.
