In love with languages and foreign cultures, willing to understand "mysterious worlds ", smiling and enthusiastic guide :) Reliable and hospitable. Looking forward welcoming you in Budapest.
3 of us stayed in Monika's apartment and it was a wonderful experience. The apartment itself is gorgeous and has a really homely, warm feeling - which you can also tell from the photos. And there is heaps of room for 3 people.. It was a pleasure to come home to at the end of the day when feeling exhausted from walking around. It was also very cool which was lovely when it was really hot outside. The view from the window in the lounge room was gorgeous with lots of flowers and big trees. So relaxing.
It was in a great position and we basically walked everywhere. 15 min walk from stephen's basilica, 10 min walk from heroes square, 15 min walk from Jewish quarter which is awesome and has all the ruin pubs and arty/grungy cafes and designer shops. And just 2 blocks from main shops at oktagon.
Monika was a great host. She was available by email and phone if we had any questions and even left us vegetables to use in the fridge. She also gave us a great tour around district 5. She also provides us with excellent recommendations of where to eat and drinks. Zeller bistro was the best recommendation - but make sure to book.
My only recommendation is to bring some DVDs with you if you want to watch something because there's only a couple of DVDs in English, and the others are in French and Hungarian.
Monika rocks! Her apartment is large, light filled and well equipped. Ideally located close to attractions and transport. In addition to a great walking tour of Budapest, Monika also arranged provisions for us and organised our return trip to the airport.
Throughout our stay Monika treated us like family. A perfect host who we recommend to everyone.
Ok host. She offers a city tour for those who are interested (we weren't).
Monika's place has a great central location on the Pest side close to the Oktogon and many really good restaurants nearby. Monika kept in touch and met us on time and showed us to the apartment. It is very clean and comfortable. She has everything you may need if you plan to cook and a VERY comfortable temperpedic mattress on the double bed!
She also showed us around Saturday morning for 2-3 hours which was really great and added to our understanding of the area, She likes to practice her English and knows the area very well. Five stars for Monika's place!
Monika's apartment is in a great location and has everything you could need -the weather was so nice while we were in Budapest we didn't spend a lot of time in the apartment but the apartment was cosy and would be a nice place to relax in had we wanted to. I stayed with my friend and her two year old son - they shared the bedroom and I slept on the sofa bed - there was plenty of room for us all.
Monika took us on a tour of the area and beyond on our first day which she didn't have to do - it was really nice to be shown around and taken to places we may not have found otherwise
Monica´s appartment is perfect, roomy, confortable and full of light, and she is the best host you can ask for. The appartment is located in the center of Budapest, I could go to most places walking. Recomended 100%
The staying in Budapest was even better because of Monica. The apartment was excellent, the reception fantastic and she even showed the city for us. To stay in that cosy apartment is a MUST.
Great flat, fully accessorized and a wonderful owner. Mónika did all that she could in order to make us feel at home and welcomed. I definitely recommend the flat which is very centrally located (2 mins from the Metro station on Andrássy út). Thank you so much for having us and we will definitely come back and recommend the flat to our friends!
She is not only nice and friendly, but also intelligent and she is aware of a lot of things. That's why she can give you interesting facts about the city for example, or can guide you on a city tour and show you lovely places. Furthermore, I think she will recommend you excellent entertainment possibilities.
