The apartment is located in an old building (we like old buildings) by the river, right opposite the Citadella, and the view is spectacular as promised. The living areas are bright, airy and spacious. The balcony is a delight for relaxation at the end of a long day, and the window boxes with flowers and herbs provide freshness and greenery.
There were a few things missing from the kitchen. There was no dish towel, so it was hard to dry dishes. There was a sponge for washing up, but it wasn't new and I do like to know whose bacteria I'm adding to my dishes. An oven glove is really essential in a kitchen with an oven and grill. I believe that a fire blanket should be provided in any area where significant temperatures can be raised.
This is an absolutely lovely apartment and we thoroughly enjoyed our short 4 night stay here. The apartment was spacious, clean and very comfortable and had everything we needed. The wifi worked well but we didn't use the television so can't comment on that. An adult slept on the sofa bed and said that it was comfortable. The apartment is well placed for restaurants, food shopping and bars and you are within easy reach of the parliament buildings and the metro for further exploration. The management company were easy to deal with and very efficient. Tamas arranged our transfer and it was so nice to have a lovely taxi driver collect us from the arrivals hall and deliver us to the apartment without any fuss. I would highly recommend Budapest as a city to explore. Beautifully clean, lots to see and do, (the thermal spas are amazing) and very reasonably priced. £1 for a metro ticket! We are considering returning next year and would certainly come back to this apartment.
