This is the second holiday property we have booked with HomeAway, but the first time we have booked an apartment for a city-break, so it was something a bit different from our usual hotel stays.
It's a lovely spacious apartment in a very quiet part of Budapest, yet within easy reach of transport, the Danube and local amenities. We only ate breakfast in the apartment, but the kitchen is huge and well stocked with everything you would need to cook for 5 people. The living room is spacious and sunny with comfy sofa and chairs - we couldn't get the TV working but there is a CD player for music and DVDs to watch if you're spending time indoors.
The bed was comfy with a shared en-suite bathroom connecting the two bedrooms - maybe an issue if staying with friends but as there were only two of us it didn't bother us at all, and the toilet is separate anyway. The shower is small but powerful and adequate for what you need on a city holiday. The apartment isn't posh, but it has a lovely welcoming feel to it and makes a great base for exploring the beautiful city of Budapest.
The owner couldn't have been more helpful - answering emails within a hour or so and providing lots of local info which helped get us off to a good start. As we arrived mid-evening, knowing where the local supermarket was to get milk etc was a godsend!!
Overall - we could definitely recommend the apartment for those wanting peace and quiet at home but within easy reach of the tourist sights, bars, restaurants etc.
