Ich wurde sehr freundlich empfangen, Janos und Jozsef haben mir beim Gepäck und mit Parkmöglichkeiten sehr geholfen.
Die Lage ist sehr zentral und verhältnismässig ruhig.
Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt.
Janos and Jozsef are wonderful hosts. The apartment was comfortable, clean, and very well located. The hosts work very hard to clean their apartments and welcome their guests personally, which makes their listing a genuine home away from home. Recommended.
Appartement très confortable et calme . Bien situe près du tramway et du Danube . Proche des commerces et restaurants bon marche .
Janos and Jozsef are phenomenal hosts! You are greeted by friendly, upbeat smiling hosts upon your arrival, who are willing to provide you with numerous tips and suggestions for places to go, eat, and sites to see.
The apartment is in a great location next to the Margaret bridge. It is very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Pretty much all we could have asked for.
Our hosts went far above and beyond anything we expected. Upon arriving in Budapest, my girlfriend had come down with a terrible cold. They immediately made us tea, ensured she had anything she needed to help her rest and be comfortable to be able to get better, and even offering to take us to a hospital if needed to help bridge the language barrier. Truly amazing!
The only negative is that we didn't get to stay longer and get to know our hosts better.
Thank you Janos and Jozsef!
Great location and flat, really enjoyed it. Janos was a great host and he helped us with everything we needed. Definitely recommend!
We had a great weekend in Budapesht, thanks in no small part to the apartment Janos rented out to us. The apartment is in a neighborhood just north of the Margaret Bridge on the Pesht side. It's a great location, with easy access to a great part of the city through the No. 2, 4, and 6 trams as well as the metro (just a bit farther away). The neighborhood itself has some excellent restaurants along pedestranized streets and is just one stop away from Margaret Island (perhaps my favorite place in Budapesht).
We tend to rent apartments on the fancier side, partly to minimize the possible "ick" factor of an unclean flat. The apartment is not that fancy but was perfectly clean, homey and comfortable--all well within our needs and at a very favorable price. Perhaps one of the best for-value apartments that we have rented.
I must admit that I was initially a little concerned about Janos as he seemed very focused on rules, fees, and other details about our arrangement prior to our arrival. I had visions of an overly punctilious individual who would make our stay less than pleasant.
What we experienced could not be farther from this initial impression. Janos is a warm, friendly individual who gets a lot out of meeting travelers from all over. On top of it he has thought through a lot of scenarios and has sketched out possible consequences if this or that occurs (as all landlords should do). Our check-in was rational, practical, polite, and entirely proper. As a lawyer, and as a traveler, I was quite impressed.
So, I highly recommend the apartment and Janos. We would definitely look to him first for any accommodations should we return to Budapesht.
Janos was a fantastic host, explaining our location and some great things to do while we were staying in Budapest. Location is alright. We made most of our own meals and the kitchen served us perfectly. The apartment does look a lot bigger in the photographs, but that's always the case isn't it?
Just remember to have a good look at the 'House Rules' so you are not surprised by all the extra charges when you arrive.
