Free breakfast was included and the staff were friendly. Right next to a streetfood place snd great location. The room was spacious and had a cooking area, 2 bedrooms, a living room and a fairly nice bathroom with a washing machine!
I booked a superior 1 bed apartment for myself and my fella. We arrived and were told that a change had been made and that we were now in a 2 bed apartment instead. That seemed fine. We were assured the only difference would be that there is an extra bedroom. We went to the apartment and it's seemed lovely, we dumped our bags and left to go get acquainted with the city.
When we returned to the room in the evening we went out onto the balcony for the first time and spotted blood on the ground. (Pictured) We closed up the balcony and went to bed. Getting into the bed I noticed a small purple stain on the pillow. That was alright in my opinion because I could tell the sheets had been laundered and ironed. We were getting in to go to sleep and found a small piece of glass inside the bed (pictured). During the night the flat sheet on the bed moved and you turned and in the morning when we looked at the bed we could see the mattress was really disgustingly stained (pictured). We went into the living room at that point and in the daylight could see that the couch was also very dirty (pictured) and the table was cracked (pictured). The walls and ceilings were quite dirty (pictured) and when we went into the bathroom with the shower there was a hole not only in the bath but in the bathroom floor (pictured).
We went down to talk to the check in desk about all these things and when I showed all the pictures the lady simply said "I know" and " we are aware" and told us we won't be charged for damages. When I showed her the blood she did seem thrown and asked what had we done last night and when we told her that we hadn't even been on the balcony before we found the blood she offered to send a cleaner up to our room but warned us that they wouldn't be free for an hour or two. We told her that we would be out for the entire day so any time would suit for the cleaner to go up as long as it's cleaned before around 8pm.
When we arrived that evening the blood was still there and there was no evidence there had been a cleaner at all.
If you're going to be too drunk to care then stay but if you like to feel confident that the place has been cleansed properly and is looked after then I'd give it a miss.
We were here for 5 nights. And I can only say it was great.
Since we arrived rather late, we got an very detailed email stating that the key to the room and other i fo will be waiting for us in a small coded box on the reception door.
Got therw, took everything from the box, went to the room and was stunned by how spacious it was. Great value for money.
This place is on a perfect location, you can say that ypu are in the middle of everything you wanna visit (depending ofc on your interests, for us perfect location).
The, before mentioned email was really detailed and also the info from the box. So basiclly there was no reason to harras the reception.
Only time I went there was to switch towels, which you can do on a daily bases. Rexeption staff was very good.
Will come back again for sure.
Stayed for 3 nights over the weekend as a group of 4 in a 2 bedroom apartment.
Apartment itself is clean & very nice! Big enough for 4 of us and felt like a homely place. Location was brill right opposite the Ruins pub which is one of there famous pubs. It is in a party district but didn’t hear any noise and could sleep easily. Tesco down the road and restaurants all over. Tempatures were as low as -5 & the heating was great.
The only things that I didn’t like was the beds although comfortable where kind of small if your over 5ft5! To have late check out it’s 30euro per hour which I thought was excessive but we needed it so it is what it is.
After specifically asking for a *quiet* studio two weeks prior to our arrival, we were placed in the most noisy room in Budapest. Our studio was located *directly* infront of a CONSTRUCTION SITE, I could literally high-five the builders from that fifth floor room. The noise, starting at 7 AM on our very first day was terrible. Hammering, sawing yellings and all of the perks of a building in the making good-morninged us.
When mentioning this delightful occurrence to the receptionist, we were told that this was indeed the most quiet studio they had, as the rest of them were placed right infront of the street and that a noisy room is, as she put it, "subjective".
Well let me tell you this, there is nothing subjective in not wanting to sleep 15 meter from the consturction site. The noise there would be unbearable to anyone staying, and even using ear plugs we could not get a minute of sleep once it started, and we were told it would not end until 6 PM for the rest of the week!.
Their eventual solution (after consulting with the manager of course) was to place us in a different apartment, suppodely a larger one, for an additional charge of 50 euros! This was non-negotioable, and to be honest the apartment was a bit bigger but much less luxurious (the bed, furniture and air conditioning were all inferior to the studio we were originally placed in).
Charging us 50 euros for YOUR mistake is not proper hospitality. Booking this studio we were given no warning of the impending noise, and I suspect this was intentional since that booking was non-refundable to begin with.
