4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We were in the white apartment. It was lovely and clean with everything we would need even down to dishwasher tablets. Was a little bit smaller than we thought but still very spacious. Very quiet considering we were just off a main road. Supermarkets were 2 minutes away and which ever direction you walked in for around 5 minutes there was shops and bars. Only thing I would say it needs is a thicker mattress, more pillows and maybe a lamp or something upstairs.

This is a unique, quirky apartment in a great location. Yes it looks a tad rough around the exterior but don’t judge a book by its cover. Inside it is clean, bright, fun and safe. We loved the pinball, guitar and keyboard. The mini bar was a great added bonus as was the free mobile WiFi. Staff were super as were their transfers.

Liked: Cleanliness
This property is really well located— very central with excellent metro and tram links. Also a nice stroll of 15 -20 mins or so into centre. It’s really quiet at night so you get a great night’s sleep. Everything worked really efficiently and the internal design is to a high standard. Ours was a December visit and heating was excellent. Great shower also. Great choice to stay amongst locals rather than in hotels. We would highly recommend this property for your Budapest visit. The take out mobile wifi hotspot was a great bonus also. If so inclined we’d highly recommend the Palatinus Strand on Margaret Island for a spa and swim— outdoors and indoors. It’s really spotless and not overcrowded. Take tram 6 or 4 and then 3 stops on no 26 bus or just enjoy the walk on the beautiful island . Well done to Happy Homes — everything is as advertised , transport to and from airport was great and great reception also on arrival . 10 out of 10 !!!

Happy Home = Happy Holiday
The apartment was excellent in all aspects. Located bout 5 minutes walk from Jewish quarter which made access around the city easy. The place was spotlessly clean and provided great extras; welcome snacks, Netflix, umbrella etc etc. We would definitely return👍

At home in Budapest!
Convenient location. Cute and homey place with extras that make you comfortable and entertained and facilitate cooking and relaxing. The building is run down on the outside, but not unusual for Budapest.
