“Green Dream Apartment - Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Just returned from a four night stay at the Island Apartment.
Greg was extremely helpful and communication prior to the visit was very good which is always a good sign.
When we arrived, he was at the apartment despite the late time to show us around. He sat down to show us where the public transport, supermarkets and other local amenities were. We were travelling with two children and he assured us we would be able to take them to the baths. We went to szechenyi baths and they were lovely.
Greg left a welcome pack of cereal, milk, butter, orange juice, bread and wine at no extra cost. The apartment was clean, quiet and had everything we needed. There are supermarkets in close proximity. It is away from what I can imagine during high season to be a very tourist driven part of the city. Yet it is so close to the fantastic public transport system enabling you to access most areas very quickly. Thumbs up!

We have spent 4 days in January 2013 in the Green Dream Apartment and were truely extremely enthusiastic with this accommodation that is very well located close to the Parlement and the Marguerite Bridge, perfectly quiet and definitely convenient. Greg welcome us with kindness and gave us some useful information to enjoy our stay. I strongly recommend this address and if we come back to Budapest we will certainly go back to this Dream Apartment. We were 4 adults (two of us and our 2 daughters 19 and 22) and everyone really enjoyed the apartment as we could easily take a rest or play games or read a book or have meals and the location allowed our daughters to be independent when they wanted. Stores and tramway are at less than 100 meters but we also walked across the town very easily from the apartment. Thank you Greg for your welcome hospitality.

We stayed at the GD Family apartment. We especially appreciated the peace and quiet of the place, remarkable since the building is located on such a busy and noisy thoroughfare. (The apartment itself is at the far end of a courtyard.) Location is excellent in every way: central, close to shops and restaurants.
The interior has everything you might need, including wifi and the use of a computer. On the negative side you could say that it's nothing special, design-wise; also there's no proper separation between the downstairs and upstairs rooms (the first bedroom is on the landing, so that, for example, after our daughter had gone to bed we were unable to talk or have the television on downstairs without disturbing her). But overall the accommodation was excellent value.
Greg was welcoming and helpful. He recommended the local Pozsonyi restaurant, where we enjoyed traditional Hungarian dishes. (Note: Don't just turn up as we did to find a long queue. Reserve a table.)

I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to write one this time round. I chose to stay at GD apartment for my trip in Budapest after reading many positive reviews on TripAdvisor. It was the best decision I could have done. The apartment is at a very central location. I visited all the main attractions at the Pest side on foot, and since the apartment is at the side of the Danube, it was also easy to cross to the Buda side on foot. The apartment was equipped with everything you can imagine you'd need including a kitchenette, washing machine, iron, adapter, books on Budapest, leaflets and maps about main attractions, etc. The apartment was also very clean. The price is ridiculous. If all this does not impress you, what will certainly impress you is Greg, the apartment owner. He's the most helpful person you will ever meet. He speaks perfect English and explains everything you need to know to make things as easy as possible for you. One day I emailed him at 1:30am, and he replied a minute later! To sum it up, I totally recommend this place.

Room Tip: Don't forget to tell Greg at what time you will be arriving so that he will be waiting for you a...

My girlfriend and visited Budapest last week for a 3-day trip and stayed in the Green Dream apartment and we can really recommend it.

The apartment is situated in a central place with public transportation, super market and a variety of cafés and restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance. The apartment itself is situated in a beautiful old building, and we also enjoyed the interieur design. The apartment is spacious, and is equipped with all basic cooking facilities and also a washing machine, but no automatic dishwasher and no baking oven. There was also a TV with Hungarian and English speaking channels and wifi internet access for free.

The apartment entrance is on the ground-floor, but the sleeping room is to be reached via stairs, so physically disabled visitors should keep this obstacle in mind.

I also want to emphasize that we had the impression of a very helpful and friendly service by the apartment owner who provided useful information.

I can recommend a stay in this apartment with a clear conscience!
