Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

The unit is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and ever so centrally located. We got a transportation pass but barely used it.There are great restaurants on the street below. The only downside at all is the 3 flights of stairs. We loved Budapest and loved the apartment.

Strålende! Anbefales!

  • 4 of 5

Superb beliggende rett ved Basilicaen. Flere gode restauranter rett utenfor døren. Leiligheten inneholdt alt vi hadde behov for og mere til. George og Barbara er gode verter som hadde sørget for vann og melk i kjøleskapet og kaffekapsler tilgjengelig. Skulle likt å vite hvor man fikk kjøpt kapslene, da vi gikk tomme etter hvert. Tre etasjer uten heis i en gammel bygård kan bli litt voldsomt om du er dårlig til bens, men praktfullt om du tåler det. Parkering i automatgarasje (veldig snedig) like ved leiligheten. Om jeg skal nevne noe negativt må det være litt dårlig airkondition for nattesøv (det var rundt 30 grader ute) og ingen utsikt. Men hva gjør vel det i det stor og hele? Utsikten er rett utenfor døren der toppen av Basilicaen sees over hustaket. Vi kommer mer enn gjerne tilbake😊򒠠Takk til George og Barbara for et flott opphold!

Very smooth booking process, all our questions were answered promptly. George helped with airport transfer and provided lots of recommendations regarding sites, programs, restaurants. The property is even better than on the pictures, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. We loved the location and would recommend this property to other travellers. Thank you Barbara and George for all your help.

Gorgeous, Centrally Located Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious apartment with a great, central location. We enjoyed walking to most attractions in Budapest. Despite its central location, the apartment was still peaceful and located on a quiet street. Nice furniture, that can fit a family of 5. George was nice and promptly responded to our questions. There is some climbing steps to reach the apartment, which we enjoyed doing. Had a minor issue with the air conditioning, but everything else was wonderful. Thanks George! We highly recommend this place!

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for five nights in August, and everything went very well.

The location is perfect and the apartment was clean, quiet and well outfitted.

George arranged for picking us up at the airport and all other arrangements in renting this apartment were handled professionally.
