Rosie was a great help from the day i made the booking and was there to greet our party of 6 at the apartment to show us around and give information on the surounding area, we had a long weekend from 1/6/18 to 4/6/18 and had a fab time.
The blurb doesn't lie - it really is a beautiful, spacious and comfortable apartment. We were a couple and a friend and it was perfect for us - the two bedrooms are at opposite ends of the flat so are effectively both ensuite. The owners have thought of everything, from guide books and maps to bottle openers, good toiletries, DVDs and even the use of a tablet. It's tastefully furnished throughout: yes, it's an old building and the furnishings reflect that, but if you want something more modern there are plenty of identikit pod hotels in Budapest!
The location is perfect - within walking distance of many of the main tourist sites, but in a relatively quiet area full of bars and restaurants that are frequented as much by locals as by tourists. There's a little street noise if you have the windows open, but nothing like what you'd get in some of the more obviously touristy parts of the city centre. For those, like us, who like to travel off the beaten track a little, there are numerous metro, tram, trolleybus and bus connections within 10mins walk - we bought weekly travelcards for @ £13.80; the BKK Futár app is very useful for planning.
There are two flights of stairs to reach the apartment and no lift, which could be a problem for anyone with mobility issues, but our trio of unfit 50-somethings managed it fine, albeit with a little puffing and wheezing.
Communications with the owners and managers were great throughout.
Budapest is a beautiful and fascinating city and it wasn't hard to find interesting places and things to keep us occupied for the week. We hope to come back, and we'd certainly have no hesitation in booking the Crystal apartment again.
