Green Dream Apartment
Ranked #92 of 672 Specialty Lodging in Budapest
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I always stay in one of Greg and Sylvia's apartments whenever I'm in Budapest on business, which is frequently. Their newest property, the Palatinus Apartment, is an wonderful addition to an already incredible fleet of places to stay. The location is perfect--right on the Danube. The size is cozy, so it's perfect for a couple of single traveler. I highly recommend any of the Green Dream apartments!

Greg has done a great job in equipping and looking after this holiday apartment which is very well located close to the river whilst convenient for tourist and nightspots in the immediate area.

Comfortable and cosy living space with shops very close by

Where do I begin? Greg is so personable and charming and this GD Light Apartment PERFECTLY located for all the public transportation. OH MY!

We stayed a week during a freak cold spell in March, but this apartment is just steps from publice transportation tram 2 - down the Pest Danube. You can take a little bus 16 up and down the Buda Hill from there. Tram 4 or 6 will take you east or west - Margrit Island - or to the Metro 3 Nyugati.

The apartment is clean, super secure - key from street, key to PRIVATE courtyard, KEY to apartment - so very very quiet and restful! The wifi worked very well, with a small dip in speed when people get up - but very fast otherwise. The kitchen is well equipped with table service, appropriate pots, pans, hot pot, espresso machine, toaster . . . everything you need.

Greg is very polite, sincere, and honest. I completely endorse Greg and his apartments!

Tip - if you take the FUNGARIAN class - not all teachers are very good . . . so ASK for a great one - - otherwise - skip this class - - also - we were blindsided to the fact you HAVE to order a 3x's overpriced capuccino or other to sit there. We learned 2 words and it was NOT fun. . . . not Greg's fault - mine.

Oh - and Greg advised taking the HEV 5 (after tram 4 or 6 in front of the apartment) to Szentendre - perfect day trip! You DEFINITELY should buy the 2-3 or 7 day transport ticket - even though the city is walkable - why waste your travel dollar time climbing Buda's hills?? Our 7 Day Metro/Tram/Bus/Train ticket cost $22 US, and takes you to/from the airport, and anywhere on a train to Hungary's borders . . . how AWESOME!

And there is a cute small washer (no dryer - but not a problem - there's a great drying rack) - and an iron (but who irons on vacation - REALLY?)

Room Tip: If booking the GD Light - I would recommend for 2 people only - not 3

Came to Budapest with two friends and have had a fabulous time. Greg the owner was really accommodating and met us from the taxis with recommendations of where to go. His restaurant and spa bath recommendations were fabulous. Amazing apartment in a great location. Convenient for all major sights with a tram stop just outside. amazingly quiet for such a central location. Thoroughly recommended.

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.
