I had a great time at Jonathan's place in Bucharest. It is cozy and very clean. The terrace is great for passing an evening looking at the city--you can see everything from there, all the way to the Palace of the Parliament. It is a short walk from the apartment to Piata Victorei (where you can get the metro to anywhere you want to go), Piata Romana, as well as Park Herestrau--which is fantastic. The apt is also very close to the Museum of the Romanian Peasant and it is just a short walk down Calea Victoria to the National Museum of Romanian Art. This is a perfect place to stay for a single person or a couple. I was here one week and it went by too quickly!
I really appreciated my stay in Jonathan's apartment. Very nice reception from him and his wife. They even fulfilled a special wish I asked before. Many thanks!.
The apartment was very clean and had a nice balcony over viewing the city. Closing the windows allowed a quiet sleep. Photos and description of the flat are exactly matching with the reality. I am sure to return in the future.
Very nice people, the sort I would befriend. The flat was as described and as per the photos. Location is good if you need to park as lots of space on side streets. Just down the road a busy street with lots of cafes and places to eat, plus victoria metro station which is just a few stops from the old city centre. I will probably stay here again when I drive up next time.
Perfect - clean space, as expected, the couple were great with communications before and during my stay. Would definitely choose same one if ever back in Budapest.
I stayed in this apartment for more than 1 month. It looked exactly as on the pictures and had everything I needed (first of all, kitchen, washing machine, iron & ironing desk).
Jonathan and his wife are very nice hosts, who are always ready to help!
I enjoyed my trip a lot, and definitely recommend this apartment!
Jonathan is an excellent, easy to deal with host.
Apartment was exactly as described.
We stayed for a week in this flat,and we recommend it for others.
Nice host,s who was kind to pick us up at the airport, the flat is perfect for 2 people with everything you need.
everything was working it was warm and nice flat, with a fine balcony with a nice view over the streets. It was quiet and clean in all the building. But of course you here a bit off the traffic from the street.
The location was very good with 5 minutes walk from the subway and 200 meters to taxi. And close to Herestrau Park!
We could absolutely stay here again!
