“Dream Apartment is Excellent”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

The two of us stayed 4 nights in the GS Dream Apartment, which is on the Buda side just across the Liberty Bridge. The location is excellent, being at the end of the very lively Vaci Utca and a short walk across the small plaza to the Great Market Hall (closed Sundays) where you can buy anything you need. We took advantage of Tomas' offer to arrange a taxi for us from the airport and this worked quite well as we arrived at night and it was our first time in Budapest. If you've been here before and have used public transit, you could also get to the Dream Apt via bus/subway. The #200 airport bus connects to the Blue 3 Metro line and that line stops at Kalvin ter station which is about 4-5 blocks from the apartment going in the direction of the river. This apartment has everything including coffee maker, toaster, microwave, etc. The WIFI is quite speedy and Tomas has preset english language "favorite" channels on the TV. Public transit is easy to learn and we used the #2 Tram alot running along the Pest side of the river. We also used the #6 which does a horseshoe thru the center of town, ending up on the Buda side. The 6 Tram also connects to all three metro lines. Overall, a great place to stay in Budapest, and while we don't know where Tomas' other properties are, this one worked great for us. Tomas' recommendation to eat goulash at the "For Sale" pub/restaurant around the corner is spot on. Recommend you share it because the two of us did and it was quite plentiful and came with a whole loaf of very good bread..

We booked this apartment for a business trip to Budapest and found that it met every need. It's close to Margaret Bridge and the beautiful parliament buildings. The accommodation was spotless, comfortable and just as we expected from the web site adverts. The stair was quiet in the evenings and a pleasant stroll home in the evenings. Plenty food shops close by to pick up supplies as well. The wine bar next door is excellent as well!

We stayed at the wonderful Golden Stars Dream Apartments right on the main shopping street of Vaci Utca. Tomas has three different apartments, all of which I have no doubt are excellent. You could walk to all sorts of nice restaurants and shops. One block from the main market building which had all kinds of food and knick knacks in it. The apartment had two very nice bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, dining room, and bathroom. It had free internet, cable tv, and VOIP to call back to the US and Canada. Kitchen is nice as it allows for families to have a few meals together at the apartment. Tomas was wonderful in assisting us. He met us at the apartment and helped with luggage and getting us situated. Highly recommended for either 2 couples or a family of 4. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to exciting Budapest!

We stayed in Budapest from Nov. 3-7/2012. We were greeted by a friend of Tomas who explained all about the apt. and did answer a few questions we had concerning the city.
The apt. has everything you will need to make your stay comfortable- well equiped kitchen, towels, iron board etc. We felt very comfortable coming home after a day of sighseeing. The gem of this apt. is the location - really close to Parlament, Chain Bridge and the tram 2 just outside the door! They have two nice bars were we enjoyed delicious beer ! Apt. is situated in a very safe area and even though is very central it feels very quiet.
If back in Budapest (great city) we would not think twice in booking the same apt.

I definitely recommend staying in this apartment if you're going to Budapest. The apartment is well-decorated and very comfortable. I stayed there by myself, but there is plenty of room for two or three people. The amenities, especially the washer and strong Wifi, certainly came in handy. The location would be hard to beat-- right in downtown Pest, close to the river and several excellent cafés/restaurants. Tomas is an excellent host, quick to respond and always available. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

This apartment will meet your expectations, don't hesitate, just book.

We were welcomed by Tomas who was very helpful and also arranged the transfer from the airport to downtown Budapest, in front of the apartment door.

We spent 4 nights in the Golden Stars Superior apartment and had a great time there.
The apartment is ideally located and many touristic sights are within walking distance. Vaci street is very near and there is a nice choice of breakfast venues in the neighborhood. The great market hall is close, as well as the basilica etcetera.
Furthermore, the apartment is very clean and nicely decorated, good beds, practical kitchen and a warm, cosy atmosphere. You have to climb 3 quite long stairs which wasn't a problem for us but could be for others.

We will definitely book here again next time we go to Budapest!

I stayed there for a week this summer with two friends. Great location, lovely space, nice amenities. It may seem a little pricy but between the amenities (solid wi-fi, washing machine) and the kitchen (saved a bunch on food & drink), it's worth it. Best of all, Tomas was great about communication, completely reliable in terms of arranging things for us (e.g., pickups/dropoffs), and very helpful about giving some insider tips about things to do/places to go. I'd stay there again without a question.
