“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Excellent location, near to city center and main attractions and the river, but still quiet.
The staff was outstanding, very helpful and really kind, the cleaning is perfect.
Very good value.

We stayed 4 nights at the Island apartment in October 2013. Despite not arriving until just after midnight, we were met at the apartment by Judy, who showed us around the very well equipped flat, and gave us several good recommendations of restaurants, and information regarding public transport and nearby supermarkets.

The communication after booking directly from the website was always very quick and clear. We dealt mainly with Sylvia who couldn't have been more helpful.

The free wifi and use of a laptop in the apartment is a big plus. The kitchen is well equipped, and the bathroom modern with a powerful shower. If I have one slight grumble it would be the lack of natural light in the apartment, but this I accept is inevitable for a ground floor apartment facing onto an interior courtyard. And in any case, there are a range of lighting options and it certainly wasn't problematic.

Despite being just steps from one of the busiest roads in Budapest, the flat was peaceful with no noise from the street.

I would not hesitate to return to the apartment, and would recommend it highly to anyone else.

Stayed 4 nights at the apartment with my daughter, there's plenty of space for us. the apartment was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Greg was there welcoming us and showed us around, gave us lots of advice and tips, much appreciated.
Budapest is a small city, we walked to most places from the apartment. We really enjoyed our time there and will most definitely stay at Greg's again if we ever come back to Budapest.

I stayed here a while back (I think it was last year actually) and must have forgotten to review at the time - great experience, the owners were super helpful and the apartment was so comfortable and well located. A great find, I will be passing it on to a friend visiting Budapest and will stay there again on future visits!

We booked the studio supposedly for two persons. We got a tiny apartment which used to be one floor but was made into two floors. There was no bed but rather a futon which size is not enough for two persons (and we are of a normal size). Linens and towels looked very much used. The room looks renovated but the bathroom is rather run down with black fungus on the walls and in the shower. There was a sewer smell in the bathroom but I blame it on the age of the house (the building itself is lovely). Also, the shower is tiny with the shower head that does not stay on the bar so you have to hold it to use it. Wi-fi was working on the first day only. We were supposed to be welcomed by a staff member who spoke fluent English. There was however a misunderstanding between the staff and the guy who came to greet us was a bit late and spoke rather poor English. Although there is a sign that the place is connected to the police, we were informed that the alarm was not working (considering that the place is on the ground floor and there is only one lock on the door, I didn’t feel save leaving my belongings there). You can also hear the street noise. The location is fine, within walking distance from Margaret bridge and Margaret island, as well as other tourist spots. You could easily find a better quality for the same price.

Homey GD Light apartment is our smallest budget unit. Although being a tiny one, downstairs room offers a separated privacy on a double sofa bed. Upstairs (full height) main room features a comfortable junior size (140*200cm) double bed, a fully equipped standard kitchen and a mini shower room with a toilet (look at the photos). The apartment is an ideal choice for students or couples for a short stay at central downtown location. Free wifi, coffee and tea, unlimited hot water.
We are proud of the safety offered by all of our apartments. Double gated quiet courtyard (secret code for both), safety lock systems built in all the unit entrance doors. Alarm systems installed privately in part of our units. Gladly inform you: past 5 years, we served more than 2500(!) satisfied guests, and there happened NO ONE crime, bugrlary or robbery in our propertyies. It is a good maths, isn't it..
Oh yes, during a busy fully booked summer season sometimes it is hard to ensure the continous top-level quality of all the amenities and services of a vacation rental. We are commited to the constant personal care to our guests, and we do always try to react and resolve promptly to any kind of even minor claims as well. On check-in time, we also encourage guests to have their instant notice without delay while staying with us via various online channels and mobile.
Rarely, we fail. We do apologise if any inconvenience or any insufficient quality of a setup happens. Thanks to guests' appreciation, in fact, there quite a few cases happen in a tourist season.

Our second stay at this apartment and yet again we were very pleased to stay there. The Apartment is clean and well equipped, ideally suited for two to four guests, although six can be accommodated. Excellent location close to Margit Island and central to many of Budapest's tourist locations. Gregg was on hand to welcome us and couldn't have been more helpful, we will definitely be staying there again!

The location is very good. A lot of attractions, such as the Parliament, the Promenade and Chain Bridge, are within walking distance. Supermarkets, grocery shops and pastries are just next door. One more good thing is that the apartment is equipped with washing machine. I don't need to bring along with too many cloths or worry about the cloths are damaged by laundry shop.

Talking about the areas for improvement. There is no sign outside the apartment. It is quite difficult to locate it so you need to make sure you remember the exact address, otherwise you will miss it. Also, the apartment is only equipped with one electric fan, try to ask for additional ones when you stay there in summer time.

One last thing is nothing to do with the apartment but departing transportation. We took a pre booked taxi arranged by Greg, the apartment host, to the airport. We found that the driver was crazy. He drove the taxi at over 100 km/h on the road with speed limit 60 km/h and drove on the opposite for taking over even he saw that a car was coming. When we yelled for his crazy driving behavior, he just laughed at us. Thanks god we are safe to home. He may not be representative to show all the taxi drivers, but my advise is to don't put yourself at risk. Try other transportations.

Every mid-summer a few hot-dog days (temperature over 35°C degrees) always come to my hometown Budapest for a week or two. Fortunatelly, all of our apartments are located a century+ old museum piece buildings. Wide brick walls do preserve releatively cool air for the nights for your relaxing. Respectively, on your request we are more than happy to provide extra fans for your convenience. We suggest to sleep while the windows are kept opened midnight time from 10pm - 7am. Don't worry, windows open to an extra quiet courtyard with green plants and flowers providing fresh feel of the air.
Taxi company: due some complaints, now we have changed our standard taxi co agency to a higher quality of service. Your cab will be booked from the official airport taxi company Fotaxi or the Taxi800. This point I do apologize to all guests who were disappointed in any kind of transportation or airport transfer (shuttle or taxi) service in Budapest.
