Absolutely wonderful apartment. Plenty of room, and every amenity. Very pleased with Tamas and his staff. They were very accommodating. Killer location
Good location, nice rooms, pros and cons
The apartment was on the east side of the old downtown part of Budapest - easy to walk to the sights. The apartment is on a quiet alley (except for the temporary road construction next to the building which created some early morning noise a couple times while we were there). Right around the corner is a nice restaurant called "Rubens" which has a nice menu and reasonable prices. Just down from that is a little cafe next to a children's park called Karolyi-kert. You can sit outside and have coffee and breakfast or have some wine in the afternoon/evening. Very pleasant place. The Hungarian National Museum is very close. The apartment has two bedrooms downstairs, both with a queen bed and two bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen and one with two single beds. There is a bathroom upstairs with a shower and the washer is inside this bathroom. The washer worked fine. The electric dryer did not work very well and it was very noisy (we could hear it all night in the bedroom below it downstairs). Downstairs is the kitchen (appliances all work - Nespresso coffee maker), living room, two rooms with queen beds. Jacuzzi tub downstairs with shower but no shower curtain. I read other reviews that the railing on the stairway was loose and when we arrived we found the same problem. It could be very dangerous as one of the screws is missing in the base of the railing. I'm kind of surprised that VRBO (and the apartment management company in Budapest) would want to take on this type of liability. I took a picture of the loose railing and emailed it to the manager. He sent a young lady to "fix" it but she did not have the proper tools and the manager informed me he would "tell the owner" (not sure what role managers have in Hungary). A cement bit on a drill could drill the proper hole for a 1 euro anchor and the problem would be fixed in minutes. Instead there remains a dangerously loose railing on the stairs. The best supermarket close by is SPAR - several near the apartment. If you travel to and from the airport the best way to get to the apartment is by "Fötaxi." We paid 6300 Forint (20Euros) to get to the airport from the apartment. The apartment manager offers airport transfers but if your flight departure time gets changed (like KLM did with 5 hrs notice), he couldn't re-book it for a later time and still charged us full fee (taxi fee and profit). Manager won't give you the contact number for the driver for last minute airline changes.
Thank you for your detailed review and I am happy that you have enjoyed your stay. Just reflecting on some of your comments: Regarding the railing, it is absolutely safe, as it is secured with 3 screws. Regarding the taxi service. You can order transfers through our website and we organise everything for you. When you do this, you accept the terms which clearly state that we are not able to accept cancellations with less than 24 hours notice. The guest knew this and sent us an email at 1.00am to cancel a transfer for 4.00am the same morning, expecting us to react to this. Please note we are not a hotel with 24h reception. These are holiday homes and we respond to enquiries and bookings during our office hours. Also we don't give out the number of our drivers, as they are private persons too. So the guest just thought he can do this and not turn up for the transfer. So our driver was there at 4.00am waiting for him for nearly 20 minutes. We obviously had to pay the driver, but it took us a lot of convincing for the guest to pay for this at the end. In these unfortunate case when you have an airline cancellation, please don't try to avoid paying the bill, but rather collect the invoice and try to claim this from your airline.
Spacious and great location
The apartment was spacious and in a great location. There were 4 of us and it could have easily slept more. It was a good value and Budapest is a fun place.
Super Wohnung mit sehr nettem Kontakt
Bei Anreise vor Check-in wurde uns sogar erlaubt das Gepäck in der Wohnung abzustellen während gereinigt wurde.
Für jeden Gast stand schon mal 1 Kaffeekapsel von Nespresso zum Verzehr bereit.
Der Kontakt war während des gesamten Prozesses immer gegeben und lief problemlos ab.
Eine Vorabinfo wie man in das Gebäude kommt wäre jedoch wünschenswert.
Fußläufig kann man alles von hier aus erreichen was sehenswürdig ist.
