We are flexible young creative owners. Early check in / late check out is not a problem for us. It is always a pleasure to wait for our guests even at late midnight hour.
We really do appreciate your attention, if you pull of the bed linen and wash up the dishes in the kitchen before your leave.
A team takes care of the flat: we had contacts with Greg thought emails and he was very friendly and reactive. Instead the person who greeted us was only speaking Hungarian so at first we had some doubts about the practicalities.
The flat is nice for 4-5 people and as we only were two, it was very nice.
The neighbourhood is great, close to public transportation, monuments, bars, etc and yet very quiet.
Greg is just excellent, there is little else I could say about the man! He's really got an excellent place to stay in Budapest!
The apartment is literally perfect for a city break - I booked the place because it looks nice, but was blown away that we literally had everything on our doorstep.. Main street for a party is a 10min walk past the most stunning buildings I've ever seen!
I will be coming back here one day!!!
This was a great "home base" for our week in Budapest! It's conveniently located by Margaret Bridge and just a few blocks from the Parliament Building on the Pest side of the city. Two tram lines are just steps away - the #2 line that takes you toward Erzsébet Square/Deák Ferenc tér, Market Hall, Chain Bridge, and the #4 and #6 lines that take you to Margaret Island and across over to Buda near the Lukács and Király baths. The Budapest Jazz Club is practically right across the street.
As for the apartment itself, it's comfortable and the upstairs loft area makes it feel spacious. The bed is super-comfortable. There is a laptop with wi-fi for guests to use. The building and unit itself are both secure. And the shower in this place - who needs to visit the Hungarian baths?! We loved stepping in there after a day of touring, it felt great!
There is a washing machine, but not a dryer (there is a drying rack) so don't do laundry within the last 1-2 days of your visit because it might not be dry. I second the other reviewer who mentioned that there is not a lot of natural light, and since it is on the ground level of the building you need to keep the curtains closed if you want privacy :-) And it was really hot when we were there so the place got a little stuffy. These are all minor things that should in no way discourage anyone from staying here!
A colleague of Greg's was at the apartment when we arrived. She didn't speak any English, but showed us around the apartment and got Greg on the phone (whose English is perfect) and he made sure everything was OK. He did stop by the apartment a couple days later, but I was out at the time and so he only met my partner.
I'd stay here again in a heartbeat if I come back to Budapest!
Great location and easy access for walking around! The flat was clean and secure. Had everything that was needed. Greg had us meet right on time at the flat and everything was explained very well! Will definitely let Greg host me again!
El recibimiento fue bueno, teníamos un mapa con puntos claves de la ciudad, todo muy limpio incluso zapatillas de casa para los tres. Hemos estado muy a gusto, un lugar céntrico con gran variedad de opciones relacionadas con el trasporte. La casa muy calentica, y equipada con todo lo necesario. Muy flexible en los horarios de llegada y salida cosa que agradecimos.
The apartment is nicely located close to Margit bridge and tram stop. It's a good location to explore the city. The apartment itself is nicely furnished and in good condition. We haven't met Greg personally since he was travelling but everything was well organised and he was very helpful. One note check out the floor plan Greg uploaded to understand the arrangement of the rooms since one of the upper bedrooms is not fully separate from the sleeping couch in downstairs living room - therefore could be less suitable for couples. Overall a very nice apartment and helpful host.
