“BudaBEST!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2011

My husband and myself stayed in a double bed apartment for 3 nights.
It was very clean and suited to our needs. There was a fridge in the kitchen along with a kettle, microwave, toaster and a cupboard stocked with tea, coffee, sugar etc. Washing up liquid and tea towel were also provided. There were also umberellas in the entrance.
The bathroom had a hydro shower but only worked as a normal shower. It was stocked with toilet rolls, shower gel, shampoo, cotton wool, earbuds and a hairdryer.
The bedroom was equipt with a comfortable double bed. There was also a computer with free internet and WI-FI. Also in the room was a wardrobe, safe, television, stereo and sweets. Towels and linen are also provided.
The apartment is 4 doors from the metro. The door looks like a shop front so don't be fooled by it as once opened it is where people actually live. There is no lift and we were on the third floor which wasn't a problem as we are fit but for anyone who would struggle with the stairs it could be a problem. It was quiet at night once we were back at the apartment.
The location is very central so we didn't need to use the buses, trams or metro for getting about. We were on foot for all of our stay in budapest. If you do enjoy walking make sure you have good walking shoes for all day comfort.
When we arrived Susanah gave us a map of the city and marked out places of interest also marked out places we had researched and wanted to visit. She also marked out restaurants, transport routes, locations and numbers.
I was concerned about the bolier at the apartment due to other reviews I had read. However, we found nothing wrong with the boiler and never smelt any gas. So I am assuming that either the problem was in another of their apartments, fixed or a new boiler has been installed.
I would definitely stay here again if I was to visit Budapest in the future.

Really want back!
I leaved in that apartment on Christmas time in 2010 year. We loved it very much because of beautiful scenery from our window. We loved very pleasant housekeeper Susanna. She is amazing person.
But we were confused by gas smell. In apartment we felt the smell of gas. It was really uncomfortable. Also I sagest to guest take warm close with yourself.
But it was only defect .
Kitchen was great. It included everything you need. Great bedroom. There was computer and internet.
Everything was excellent.

We arrived at the hotel and was greeted by a very nice lady but with limited English, Susanna. However, we had to leave the hotel soon after she left since there was a strong smell of gas coming the bathroom where the gas heater is located. The smell got stronger by the minute so we contacted the manager, Gerry Muller, about the situation via email since the phone line was nonexistent (with a nonworking phone on the wall, I might add)! He didn't respond until the second email was sent and didn't come soon enough to rectify the situation. We couldn't hang around and wait for him because we had gotten too nausous and light -headed and could barely keep our eyes open. Consequently, we left and went to another hotel.

Mr. Muller refused to refund our 3-night reservation fee even though it was no fault of ours that we chose not to risk our lives and stay in a gas-leaking apartment of his. He couldn't careless about our safety or the unsafe condition of the hotel, he was more concerned that we left the hotel and took the keys with us. Furthermore, he made a "no-show" report to booking.com (where we booked the hotel through) the next day, which would enable him to re-list the apartment for the nights that we paid for but didn't stay and prevented us from posting our glowing review of his one-of-a-kind apartment! I would not recommend this apartment to anyone!!! It's not worth the hassle.

I would not expect so much for such a low price. Apartment is located close to metro station, tram and bus stops so it is very convenient for short stay with lot of sightseeing. In the apartment we had fully equiped kitchen, very nice and clean bathroom, big double bed, TV, computer with internet, lots of guide, english books, umbrellas in case of bad weather... Just everything.

But the biggest asset is the owner. Very nice person, very open for all of your requirements (inlcuding late check-in). He introduced Budapest to us and recommended places to visit.

I recommend to everyone.
