Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Budapest! The apartment is gorgeous and very well appointed with tasteful decorations. Its location could not be better; we were able to walk everywhere. George was an amazing host; he met us at the apartment and was so kind and helpful. I'm so glad we chose this place and cannot wait to come back!

Perfect location for walking Budapest!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our visit in Budapest....walked everywhere from our apartment from the palace to several Christmas markets and all the must see sites. The apartment was cute, clean and very comfortable - George was a fabulous host and very helpful. We would stay there again.

Thanks George.

GREAT location! and a beautiful condo/flat!

  • 4 of 5

This condo could not be in a better location - we were right above great restaurants, a 1-2 minute walk from the St. Stephen's Basilica (absolutely spectacular!), and close to many other attractions. Be ready to get your exercise - it's on the 3rd floor of a winding staircases, but the stairs were actually a nice workout! Secure entry was a nice feature, too. The owners were great to work with, and responded quickly to any request for info. Wonderfully updated - granite counters, crown molding, updated fixtures, both bedrooms had an attached bath.

The layout was nice - kitchen off the entry, with a nice dining area and living room. Bedrooms on opposite sides of the living/kitchen area. Biggest BR had a 3/4 bath and the washer/dryer. Smaller BR had a full bath. It was clean and very well maintained. I would absolutely stay there again!

Couple VERY minor things - there was only one (small) trash can in the kitchen (that we found, anyway), and the TV was set to show only muslim channels; the English speaking channels were "blocked" (we tried several times to unblock them, with no success). Other than those minor things, we have nothing but positive things to say! Oh - they even had milk and grapefruit juice freshly stocked in the refrigerator, and coffee for the Nespresso machine!

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!
