I don't usually write reviews, but I think this one is warranted. I did not have very high expectations coming in, but I was very pleasantly surprised when I first saw the apartment. Though not very large, it was very clean, extremely functional, and the owners are very helpful. The bed is large and more than adequate for two people, and the kitchenette was great for keeping some snacks, drinks, and easy food on hand. There was also a large wardrobe with plenty of hangers, a clothing iron, and ironing board. I opted for a room without AC, but the owners were kind enough to provide me with a fan, and the window opened up allowing for good air circulation, which helps tremendously. The street that the window overlooked is somewhat of a busy street, but it wasn't obnoxiously noisy in my opinion, and the window in our room did have soundproofing. The location was quite good, with a metro station literally 3 minutes away by foot. The Great Market is just a few blocks away, which allowed us to stop by and get fresh fruit in the morning and there was a fantastic coffee house, Cafe Alibi, just a few blocks away. I will definitely book here again the next time I come to Budapest!!
Just one note of caution, this apartment may not be appropriate for people who are handicapped or overweight. There is an elevator in the building, but I'm not sure the facilities meet U.S. wheelchair standards. The shower was not very large, so it may be difficult for larger people to use the restroom facilities in the apartment.
