We recently spent 5 nights at Kalvin Apartments. We had visited other cities in Europe on this vacation, renting apartments in each locale. We were so pleasantly suprised at this apartment. It was very spcaious and comfortable, much larger than the other apartments we had stayed in in the other cities. Someone has given a great deal of though to decor and to equipping the suite. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals and properly eat, including nice beer and wine glasses (none of that cheesy hotel disposable plastic stuff). We had a large bed for the 2 of us, a large comfortable kitchen eating area. The suite was very clean and modern with nicely tiled bathroom. There was hand soap in the bathroom and everything needed to wash dishes prov ided in the kitchen. The wardrobe not only had the space for clothing, but also featured iron & board, clothes drying rack, complete shoe shine kit, extra toilet paper and (get this) a box of bandaids! So very thoughtful!
We felt the location to be fabulous. Very convenient to the Kalvin Ter metro station (1 block), a little grocery store across the street and down a bit (very friendly lady working there). The next street over, Raday, featured a number of restaurants where we enjoyed fabulous lunches and even better dinners. Also, the location is just a couple of blocks from the large and amazing Budapest market (including large grocery store in basement) and the Vaci Utca - the major shopping street. We arrived in Bidapest by train and found the metro ride to the Kalvin Ter station short and easy.
We found the apartment to be very quiet. We upgraded to sir condition which was well worth the slight additional cost, as the weather was quite hot while we were in Budapest. Yes, it is beside a discreet sex shop (which is beside a wedding dress store, which is beside an internet cafe) but no one was ever lurking about and we felt very safe in the area.
Our host was most obliging and very pleasant. If we are fortunate enough to be able to return to Budapest - which we hope is soon - we will definitely stay here again.
