The last time we were in Budapest we stayed at the Gellert. These apartments are 10 times more comfortable and a 10th of the price. You can read my review of the Gellert.
We had already called Paulo (the owner) from the airport to let him know we were on our way and he met us outside the building. We were a bit concerned when we saw the outside of the building, the apartments are on the 1st floor and there are 3 security measures, firstly the main door to the building then to the main door to all the apartments and then the apartment doors themselves which were alarmed, so we felt totally secure.
On entering the apartment we were absolutely amazed as it was very spacious and beautifully decorated and furnished, the WOW factor was the bathroom, it is fully tiled in black with gold flecks in the tiles. The sink is a gold bowl and the shower was a very large 'walk in'. I feel that the electrician went mad with the light switches as there were 32 in the apartment!! Talk about value for money, this was great.
Paulo showed us all the things about the apartment and gave us good information about the local restaurants. Especially about Cafe Vian.
The apartments are very well positioned near the Oktogon, there are so many bars and restaurants nearby and Vorosmarty Square/Vasci Street is only 4 stops on the Metro.
We really enjoyed our stay, it was so comfortable that we could have spent the winter here. We are coming back next year and will be staying here again.
The only downside for me was the noise of the trams, but I normally use earplugs when I sleep so in the end it did not bother me.
