“We loved our stay in Budapest at the SarahBelle”
John Fargo was so helpful. He bent over backwards to make our trip memorable. He set up a dinner for our granddaughter's 13th birthday. He even arranged to have her a cake. We were blown away by his kindness. The apartment was very nice and everything we were expecting. It was centrally located and very easy to get around the beautiful city.
“Great apartments in Budapest Center”
Boy, were we happily surprised! In previous years, we have rented apartments in various cities in Europe and have always been basically pleased with the experience. But our stay in apartments Sarah and Belle at 5 Szervita Ter in Budapest was clearly a cut above. Not only did the management provide us with a way to contact a prompt and courteous driver, who picked us up and delivered us to the apartment, but they went so far as to stock the fully functional kitchens with enough basics so that we could start our first full day in the city without having to go out either to shop or to have breakfast. The apartments are charming and comfortable and located right in the heart of Pest. They are about a block from the main pedestrian street, Vaci Utca, and only a few short blocks from the main Metro, where we could catch any of the Metro lines serving Budapest. There are phones provided for local and transoceanic calls, as well as computers with Internet access. Before our departure for Europe, our landlord, John, regularly emailed us advice regarding interesting events in Budapest, as well as restaurant and shop recommendations, and he quickly answered all questions we asked him. We enthusiastically recommend these apartments to anyone planning a stay in Budapest.
“Comfort of home with city charm”
My traveling companion and I prearranged for taxi accommodations and were very pleased with the convenience and friendliness of the drivers. Once at the property, we were greeted by a woman who briefly familiarized us with the accommodations, amenities, and local points of interest. There were many maps and guides available for our use at the apartment. I enjoyed the sampling of pastries left for our enjoyment along with a cup of coffee while settling in. During our stay, I slept on the pullout couch while my travel companion utilized the upper loft area. Both of us managed to maintain privacy and share the space quite comfortably throughout our time. The location was fantastic, I felt like many sights and landmarks were within walking distance. A walk across the Chain Bridge and a ride on the funicular led me to the wonderful history and architecture of Buda. Although a bit lengthy, we walked to Magrite Island to burn off some calories from all of the fantastic Foie gras we were sampling-the most enjoyable tastings were at Michelin rated Onyx and the Four Seasons (both just a few minutes walking distance from the apartment). Overall it was a wonderful and comfortable stay with the touches and conveniences of home. The fantastic location in the heart of the city truly allows any traveler to take in the rich culture that Budapest has to offer!
“charming, great location, best apartment we've rented”
We had the opportunity to stay in this lovely apartment on our July trip to Budapest. In a word it was awesome. The owner has gone to a great deal of effort to make sure that the apartment had everything a traveler could need. The bedding and towels were of a lovely quality. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessities and more. The wine and treats left for us to enjoy were an appreciated surprise. I loved the little loft area where the main bedroom was located as well as the quaint dining sitting area. The computer and wireless access made making further travel arrangements and keeping in touch with home very convenient. John, the owner, provided such a wealth of information before we left about the apartment, the area, restaurants, etc. that we felt we knew a lot about the city before we even arrived. I will definitely be staying here again in the future!
“When I travel I like to live like the locals.”
This place was extremely friendly and incredibly convenient to all the great places you want to see in Budapest. Amenities were thoughtful and good quality. Bed was comfortable and kitchen well equipped. Great bathroom and shower. electronically sophisticated and easy to connect. We had a blast staying in this neighborhood.
“Great location, Great apartment, Great City”
We have stayed in a number of self-catering accommodations when traveling and have seen some great and not so great places. Belle falls into the "great" category. John has fitted out the apartment with everything you could possibly need for a stay. It really is like a home away from home. The kitchen is well equipped and the fridge was stocked with some basic needs (milk, salami, baked goods) so we didn't have to run out to a grocery store right away. We were in Budapest during an unseasonable heat wave and the air conditioners were put to the test. It was so wonderful to be able to come in from the heat and relax after walking for hours seeing the sights of Budapest. John has provided instructions for everything you can think you might need help with. For us it was the instructions on where to find the circuit breaker that we needed most, when we accidentally had too many items plugged in, but once we got the hang of what would blow the circuit we were okay. Easy to fix and not something to worry too much about. The only caveat that I would put on the place is that if you have difficulty climbing steep stairs you might have problems getting to the loft bedroom. It wasn't a problem for me or my husband but for others it might be. Absolutely loved the place and would definitely stay there again.
“Great accomodation! attention to all details”
We had a great experience staying in SarahBelle apartments. Everything in the apartments was perfect. John and his wife has dedicated a lot of time on thinking in all the small and big details to make sure all their guest are comfortable and happy. Small things like travel books, umbrellas, towels for the spa, wine, a coffee machine, etc etc. Really nice place to stay. We will be coming back for sure.
“Warm, cozy accommodations, wonderful hosts, highly recommended a”
Dear John & Jeanne, A little belated, but still heartfelt thanks for the opportunity to stay at your lovely apartment,Sarah. Beginning with the great communication beforehand, your recommended driver alajos picking us up at the train station, Ilona meeting us at the apartment to introduce us to the apt., the wine, pastries, cheese, etc.waiting for us, the very comfortable accommodations with all the amenities you could think of, it was a wonderful way to spend our days in Budapest. You have thought of everything to make this a home away from home and we would highly recommend a stay here. A lovely city and the location of the apartment made it very easy to explore. We got a good introduction to Budapest -much more to see and do, hopefully another time.
“Charm in Budapest”
We are four adults from the us and stayed in the Sarah and Belle apts. in March. Both were very charming, well appointed, clean and well equiped. The refrig was stocked with food (eggs, milk, lunch meat, etc.) when we arrived along with a bottle of wine and various coffees. John and his staff were excellant to work with and very responsive. The location is great.
“Loved my first trip to Hungary!”
Thank you John for such a lovely stay at your apt SarahBelle! You truly thought of everything! The location was second to none. I don't know why anyone would stay at Intercontinental around the corner when you can get the same treatment for a lot less money staying with you! Being that taxis are somewhat unrealiable in Budapest, being in a location where you can walk to 5-Star restaurants and world class shopping, and so many tourist attractions is essential. This is what your location offers. Plenty of super large soft towels, fresh breakfast in the frig, Hungary wine to relax to in the evening, extensive tourist information, sewing kits, converter plugs, free calls back to the us, washer and dryer...on and on. You thought of everything! The only problem...we got hooked on your Nespresso maker and had to buy one upon return! :) Thanks again. We can't wait to come back! I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. Catherine
