    Review #18437486 / Topfloor 2 bedroom next Danube river 5 minutes walk to Parliament , AC , wifi / Super apartment, convenient location in lovely residential area
    If you want an apartment that is neat and tidy, conveniently located with access to the wonderful and easy to use public transport, in an area of the city that gives the visitor a small taste of living the Hungarian way, then this is the place for you. Situated just off a lovely tree-lined residential street with a range of authentic shops and family run restaurants, this apartment is away from the main noisy tourist areas of downtown Pest in the Old Jewish Quarter. Less than a 5 minute walk to the main trams (and great coffee shops on the way), this apartment is an ideal spot for those that appreciate the "quieter" night-life and the "residential vibe" of a local area. This is a typically small but light, 2-room plus separate kitchen and bathroom apartment located on the 6th floor of an historic building. The apartment was immaculate, it is light and airy, secure, has lift access, air-conditioning and came with all the homely facilities to make for a comfortable stay and to simply relax after a full day of exploring the city.
    If like me you hadn't previously had time to buff up on the city highlights and sights, there was a bunch of tourist information to peruse so we could plan for our next day s activities. It's close to Margrit bridge you can hop over to Buda on the 4 or 6 tram or take the these or the 2 tram directly to Parliament and downtown Pest or simply walk around the corner and enjoy the local cafes/restaurants and small shops or over to the island for a stroll.
    Our hosts - Janos and Joseph - couldn't do enough to give us best advice and recommendations about their favourite aspects of the city and other places outside of the Budapest. Both are genuinely friendly and helpful with no request too difficult. Through them we arranged a smooth and simple transfer to/from the airport, were met and given a friendly briefing about the area, sights, local facilities and best transport options for our stay. It was a delight to deal with hosts who are passionate about what they do, their city and in ensuring their guests have the best stay. It was a comfortable home-away-from-home experience and we left feeling we had made life-long friends. I' d highly recommend this apartment for those that don' t want to be caught up in the larger than life downtown Pest but want the convenience, accessibility and "local" lifestyle - a real little jewel in a beautiful city.

    Tres bon accueil : Yanos a organise le taxi qui nous a conduit de l' aeroport a l' appartement, ou il nous attendait. Il nous a accueilli avec son grand sourire et nous a aide a monter nos bagages . Puis il nous a consacre un petit moment pour nous parler de Budapest et nous donner des conseils judicieux.

    We absolutely loved staying at this apartment! The location is fantastic. Seriously, the neighborhood is awesome. When you first pull up you might be a little thrown off - there is an empty lot across the street and the buildings on around look a little run down but don't let that concern you! We felt extremely safe the entire time. The apartment is exactly like the pictures. It was plenty big for two couples and was SPOTLESSLY clean. The apartment really has everything you could need. Having a washing machine ended up being a huge help to us. Janos and Jozsef are so friendly and are very invested in making sure that their guests enjoy the experience. They have maps and a little guide they have printed up with suggestions on restaurants and things to do which was very helpful. We tried a few and really enjoyed them. I would highly recommend this apartment and we would definitely book again.

    Lovely flat !
    "Nous avons été très bien reçus par les deux propriétaires qui nous ont donné des renseignements sur la ville : transports, restaurants, quartiers... C''est un très bel appartement, très "classe" situé dans un immeuble de charme. On a envie d''y vivre. Cet appartement est très bien situé : tout proche de l''opéra et de l''avenue Andrassy. Quel appartement, quelle ville ! Un très bon séjour. We''re very welcome by the two landlords. They gave us a lot of informations : transports, restaurants, areas... This flat is top-quality.

    Dear Jozsef and Janos,
    thank you for your kind words! We also felt very comfortable with you, in your beautiful apartment (Szukkot apartment ) and in Budapest in all. Your recommendations made our trip something special and we gladly think back to our time in Lukacs spa or dinner at Kiskakkuk. We really enjoyed our trip and for sure you will be well recommended to anyone who wants to go to Budapest.
    Who needs 5* hotels?!

    I am a lawyer and am married to an Indonesian woman. We have a three-year old son who loves planes, trains, and automobiles. I also have a 12 year-old-son (in Manila, Philippines) who travels with us sometimes (though not as much as I'd like).
    We had a great weekend in Budapesht, thanks in no small part to the apartment Janos rented out to us. The apartment is in a neighborhood just north of the Margaret Bridge on the Pesht side. It's a great location, with easy access to a great part of the city through the No. 2, 4, and 6 trams as well as the metro (just a bit farther away). The neighborhood itself has some excellent restaurants along pedestranized streets and is just one stop away from Margaret Island (perhaps my favorite place in Budapesht). We tend to rent apartments on the fancier side, partly to minimize the possible "ick" factor of an unclean flat. The apartment is not that fancy but was perfectly clean, homey and comfortable--all well within our needs and at a very favorable price. Perhaps one of the best for-value apartments that we have rented. I must admit that I was initially a little concerned about Janos as he seemed very focused on rules, fees, and other details about our arrangement prior to our arrival. I had visions of an overly punctilious individual who would make our stay less than pleasant. What we experienced could not be farther from this initial impression. Janos is a warm, friendly individual who gets a lot out of meeting travelers from all over. On top of it he has thought through a lot of scenarios and has sketched out possible consequences if this or that occurs (as all landlords should do). Our check-in was rational, practical, polite, and entirely proper. As a lawyer, and as a traveler, I was quite impressed. So, I highly recommend the apartment and Janos. We would definitely look to him first for any accommodations should we return to Budapesht. May 2014 Painter apartment

    Super sejour a Budapest / Great stay in Budapest
    Nous sommes restes chez Janos et Joszef qui sont vraiment des gens supers et adorables : rien a dire ; ils sont chaleureux, presents des qu'on a besoin d'eux et proposent de tres bons conseils (supers restos notamment). L'appartement est tres bien place,extremement propre et tres confortable ; on s'y sent vraiment comme chez soi ; c'est aussi la cle d'un sejour reussi ! Je conseille cette adresse a tous mes amis et revient chaque fois chez Janos et Jozsef avec toujours autant de plaisir des que je vais a Budapest ! We stayed at Janos and Jozsef who are really great and sweet people : nothing to say; they are warm, you can count on them when you need and offer very good advice (including great restaurants). The apartment is very well located, extremely clean and very comfortable; we really felt like home; it is also the key to a successful stay! I recommend this place to all my friends and returned each time at Janos and Jozsef'home always with great pleasure whenever I go to Budapest!

    Janos's Szukkot apartment was absolutely wonderful. I have used online site a fair amount and have been generally very happy, but this was by far the best experience so far. The flat was SPOTLESSLY clean. As far as I understood, Janos worked in five star hotels for many years and it shows. The flat is extremely quiet and in the best part of town. I can't recommend it (or the hosts) highly enough!

    325955 - Painter 50 M2 Apartment With Danube River View
    I had the good fortune to find and stay in the Painter apartment, one of a few managed by Budapest Guestbed. From my first inquiries, to help getting from the train station to the apartment, to my host waiting to greet me upon arrival, the gentlemen running Budapest Guestbed apartments could not have been more helpful. My host was very helpful and efficient in orienting me to the apartment, but also had maps and guides and materials of interest to my specific needs and interests that he had carefully managed to determine from my emails and inquiries. Throughout my stay in Budapest, my hosts were available and responsive, and clearly their interest was more than just my enjoyment of the apartment I rented, but also that I would enjoy all of my time in Budapest. Based on my very extensive tour of Budapest, I came to realize I was in the best part, for me. The area was clearly residential, but not touristy, yet a very short walk to the parliament, right on the river, easy access to the castle, a short walk to the island park, and fantastic local restaurants in the same block as the unit. I felt safe everywhere I went, as a single older traveler. The apartment itself is big and bright, slight view of the river, nice kitchen and bathroom, and a small living room or entry den. Even a clothes washer. This was the perfect place to stay if you want to be in Budapest, rather than the McDonalds version of it at some american chain hotel. The price was also very good and made my stay much easier. It was like staying at the apartment of friends. I look forward to my return and highly recommend the Painter apartment, and any property available through Budapest Guestbed apartments.

  • (7/a) Gentlemen,
    My trip through Europe continues to be quite enjoyable, although no place I have stayed so far, has been as pleasant a stay, good value for the money, and excellently located as the Painter apartment.
    I know that I was told after asking, but it have lost whatever scrap of paper I wrote on to remind me where to post a review of your apartment rental. Can you tell me by email so that I can take care of the review during some down time with wifi as my vacation continues.
    Thanks again, Rich Jolles 20/04/2014 (from USA )

  • (5) Our stay at Janos's and Jozef's apartment ( Szukkot ) was excellent. When we arrived, Janos and Jozsef were already waiting for us. They gave us lots of useful information on where to go and what to do in Budapest. The apartment is absolutely beautiful and calm. We loved having breakfast on the balkony and enjoying some quietness after a day full of exploring the city. The kitchen is also perfectly equipped, so you don't have to eat out all the time. Thank you for making our stay so nice, Janos and Jozsef. We will definitely recommend your place to our friends and whoever asks us, where to stay in Budapest :)

    Our stay in this apartment could not have been bettered! A gorgeous flat, entirely clean, well appointed, with everything looking completely new, great bathrooms and a lovely sunny little balcony! The street was quiet and the location perfect for getting around. The wine bar on the corner was lovely for a drink on the way home. Janos could not have been more helpful with fabulous reccommendations for restaurants etc. We tried three of them and they were all good. Go and stay here you will love it! October 2013
