I am an American living in Budapest. I've worked as a photographer and photo editor for numerous publications and guide books, based in and Hungary and abroad.
The apartment has a perfect location and has been redone and is very nice and modern yet still has that touch of the old world. Hadley was magic... need something, have a question.... she took care of it immediately .....If you're going to Budapest...this is a great stay.
I stayed at Hadley's apartment with 3 other friends. She met us when we arrived and showed us around the apartment. She was very nice and answered all of our questions and even gave us some great recommendations for seeing Budapest. Her apartment was beautiful and very big, it was wonderful to have a private apartment to ourselves at less than what it would have cost for us all to go to a youth hostel. The apartment is also very central to the rest of the city, we found we could walk to almost everything. At night the area did not feel dangerous at all to me. We always felt very secure walking around, the city is very safe compared to some American cities. Overall I would highly recommend staying in Hadley's apartment!
My husband and I stayed in this flat for three nights in early January. The flat is clean and comfortable, and surprisingly spacious. Hadley is very friendly and helpful, and she responded immediately to our questions.
Hadley is very concerned that you are comfortable and have everything you need. And she's one of the nicest persons, along with her family you'd ever wanna meet. Now the apt.., it's perfect.. it's been redone and it still has the old world charm... this has been a perfect stay and as I near time to move on to my next location, I am missing it already.
Hadley was excellent host, very helpful, nice and friendly. Apartment was great, good location, even better flat.. All the best! :)
I greatly enjoyed my stay in Hadley's apartment. It's a generous space for one, would be perfect for a couple, and can sleep a few more if everyone is good friends. The location is excellent in the centre of Pest, on a quiet street only a couple of blocks' walk from easy transport connections to just about anywhere worth going in the Hungarian capital. Hadley herself was charming, helpful, fun to deal with, the perfect host. About the only thing I can think to criticize is the noisy fridge, but that was easily managed by closing the kitchen door. Good place. I'll certainly be using it again the next time I visit Budapest.
We stayed for a month (November) in Hadley's flat. Hadley is very responsive, friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed meeting her and her family. The flat is in the 8th District which is not very gentrified. But it is very close to all the cool places in the 7th (Szimpla, Bors Gastropub etc) and you can walk pretty much everywhere you want to go including across the Chain Bridge and up to Castle Hill. The flat is very large and it has a cool vintage feel as you can see in the pictures. The heat works well as does the shower; hot water and great pressure! We were comfortable in the flat and we enjoyed cooking meals in the kitchen. The one downside is you can hear the neighbors quite a bit but that is apartment living anywhere. We absolutely loved our time in Budapest and we recommend Hadley to everyone.
Easy, convenient, clean, and spacious. We booked not-quite-last-minute but Hadley was happy to accommodate us with an evening check-in, provided clear and precise directions, and met us personally at the apartment.
This is the perfect flat if you're arriving at Keleti station - you can walk there in less than ten minutes, and it's very easy to find.
This was our second stay with Hadley and everything was just as great as the first time. Highly recommended!
We visited Budapest for the first time and stayed at Hadley's apartment during our stay. Hadley was a great host, attentive and helpful and the apartment in all ways pleasant with all amenities and well looked after. Thank you for all the help and we can certainly give our best recommendations of your property and service!
It was a pleasure to host Hadley and her family. They were friendly, easy to communicate with, and very clean. I recommend them to all future hosts.
Hadley and her family were adorable-- and really interesting people. They are welcome here any time!
