Other Things to Note
It is important to know that we can receive guests 24H a day, so no problem with any late arrival, check in is from noon and on the day you leave you have to pack your luggage until 11.00, but you can keep your luggage at a safe place during the day in case you leave only later from Budapest.
We can pick you up by car at the airport for a fee of 29EUR.
You can use internet in the apartment free of charge of course and of course the use of laundry is free too. My brother can rent bikes for you too, it costs about 7EUR/day and they bring them to the apartment and you can give it back to them also at the flat when you wish.
The most important rule is to not to disturb the others living in the building and we take this serious, our apartments are located in buildings where the locals from Budapest are living, old people, babies sick and healthy, so the travelers who come and stay in our apartment should respect the building, the people and the most important part of it is not to be loud in the common areas and in the apartment after 8PM, of course you can stay out in the city as long as you wish, just please be very quite returning home and do not party in the apartment, this is the most important thing to share.
Peter был очень гостеприимен. Всегда отвечал и помогал. Квартира отличная в самом центре, с прекрасным видом, на достаточно тихой улице.
La descripción del anuncio era correcta y Peter fue muy amable con nosotras. Nos recibió y nos mostró el apartamento y nos entregó un mapa indicándonos los sitios de interés. La habitación es cómoda, tiene aire acondicionado, el piso estaba limpio y muy bien ubicado.
Sin embargo, el día que llegamos no sabíamos en qué timbre tocar ya que esta información no estaba en la dirección y por supuesto, no teníamos como contactar al anfitrión, razón por la que tuvimos que esperar varios minutos para poder subir. Se escucha un poco de ruido por la noche (al parecer un bar vecino) pero el piso tiene ventanas que lo bloquean y lo disminuyen notablemente. Creo que es más un piso para amigos o parejas que para familias.
Peter was extremely nice; he promptly responded to my many emails. He switched me over from one booking (when he had too many guests booked in) to one right by the Parliament, and it was fantastic.
My train was late arriving into Budapest, but Peter didn't complain, instead he waited patiently and even helped carry my bags up for me.
The room was very clean. Peter gave me a map with a few recommendations on where to go, which was very helpful.
I would highly recommend Peter's listings.
Had a wonderful stay in Budapest at Peter's place - fabulous view of the Margaret bridge on the Danube, really nice room and Peter was so helpful. Probably the best place we've stayed in during the entire tour of east Europe!
Ottima posizione, personale accogliente e gentile, casa con tutti i comfort. Consigliata!!!:)
Overall my experience was quite poor, for several reasons:
1. The apartment is misrepresented online. There is no living room. There is no TV. The kitchen is small and the eating area sits only 2 people comfortably, at most 3. There is no bottle of wine. There were sugar ants in the kitchen and bathroom and the bathroom, though clean in appearance, smelled of urine.
2. The apartment is *very* loud on weekends, because it is directly opposite "Peaches and Cream", a nightclub where people literally yell and sing right outside your window from 1 till 4 AM.
3. By far the worst part of our experience was that the hosts have no respect for personal privacy. We had a miscommunication about our leaving time, and they believed that we wanted to check out at 4:30 AM, when were planning to leave in the late morning. The host let themselves into our apartment at 4:30 AM while we were sound asleep and literally burst into our bedroom without knocking, threw on the lights, shocking all of us and waking our 18 month old daughter. We had to deal with her in our underwear, and although she was quite apologetic, the manager we dealt with online refused any compensation for the invasion of our privacy, for waking our daughter, for the lack of cleanliness of the flat, and blamed us for the incident. I can understand a miscommunication but it is a total invasion of privacy for someone to enter a bedroom without an invitation, and I am still very upset about this and am seeking mediation from airbnb.
However: this is not to say that there is nothing good about the apartment, if you don't care about noise and are indifferent to the actual host experience. The apartment is in an excellent location, very central and close to many good restaurants and bars. Many tourist sites on the Pest side are within walking distance, and the tourist center of Buda is also easily accessed via the bridge. The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen has all the basics you will need. While clearly not immaculate, the flat isn't that dirty, and the price is reasonable. Basically I would say that this is a good flat for a stag party or a group of young friends who want to party in Budapest but a poor choice for a family or for older people who go to bed early...
I highly disagree with your review for the following reasons:
1.) The floor plan of the apartment is available to see under the listing with a detailed description, to avoid any misunderstandings and so that everyone can see what amenities the apartment has.
The apartment was cleaned very thouroughly before your arrival, ant traps were placed (and were shown to you) because in the spring time, seldom, but we do sometimes get some sugar ants (especially on stormy days and if bread crumbs are left on the floor). We normally also apply a spray in this case, but taking into consideration that you arrived with a baby, we didn't do so, to avoid any potential hazards.
It is impossible to have urine or even the slightest smell of it in the bathroom, as we always wipe and mop-up the floor, the tiles and the toilet itself with bleach and then a special antiseptic lemon-scented formula. We always take extreme care in doing this. The only way that you could have had the urine around was if you did it yourself.
2.) You are right that the club on the corner (but not directly opposite the building) may get noisy from time-to-time on Friday and Saturday nights, although the guards of the club are there to remind people to keep quite outside as it is illegal to disturb the silence after 10 P.M.. But this is the exact reason why we have the white colour noise-cancelling shutters by the windows which you may close if these circumstances arise. I suppose you did not use these.
3.) Renee, upon your arrival you clearly told us that you were leaving at 4:30 A.M. for an early flight, you even emphasised: "We are leaving very EARLY IN THE MORNING". This was even noted down in our notebook. Even if your travel arrangements have changed you never notified us, even though we sent you 3 e-mails asking you if you need help in the early morning transfer to the airport. You replied at a late stage saying that you'll go to the airport by your own means, not mentioning a single word about any change in your check-out time. Besides all of this, why would we wake up at 3:30 A.M. on a Sunday morning to go to the apartment and wake you up? This seems highly illogical.
Just to further clarify the details of this unfortunate morning: first of all, the front door of the apartment was left wide open (with your wallet just beside the door), Secondly I would like to emphasis that we did not burst into your room without knocking (we never do so!!!). We have knocked on your door twice and waited for atleast 2 minutes before entering. We thought that you have accidentally overslept and that's why you are not awake (this has happen previously to guests of ours and they were very grateful that they didn't miss their flight thanks to us). Thirdly your baby wasn't waken up by us, but by your and your husband's strong reactions.
Finally I must say that even though it wasn't our mistake at all, upon returning to the apartment at 10 o'clock you were given a box of chocolate and a pair of socks for the baby. As a "compensation" for something that wasn't commited by us, but clearly your miscommunication.
Jesteśmy zadowoleni z pobytu. Lokalizacja świetna, bardzo sympatyczni gospodarze, czysto, klasyczne secesyjne mieszkanie....Cóż więcej potrzeba?
