I rented apt andrei for the entire month of January. It's spacious, in fabulous condition, and beautifully decorated. The furniture and bed are very comfortable for working, relaxing, and sleeping. I was met by the very pleasant and helpful property manager on arrival. Pastries and a bottle of wine were in the apartment as welcome gifts. The refrigerator was stocked with basic items. The apartment has Voip phones with us numbers and an Hungarian cell phone. I also appreciated having a computer and printer available ... perfect for buying tickets online. The apartment was thoroughly cleaned once a week throughout my stay. The owner, John, was very helpful from the moment I contacted him. He went out of his way to track down answers to very specific questions I had while planning my month in Budapest. He called during my stay just to make sure everything was going well. The location was perfect for me. It is close enough to the tourist district that I could walk or take the nearby metro, but just far enough away that I felt I was actually living in a neighborhood rather than visiting as a tourist. The apartment sits on a lovely square with a beautiful church. I could not have asked for a better view! There are lots of great restaurants within walking distance from the apartment. When I return to Budapest, I will definitely be booking apartment andrei again.
“So much more than we expected ...”
From the moment we first corresponded with John of Budapest Vacation Rentals, we just knew this apartment was going to be something "out of the box". It was - and much, much more ... We were greeted by Ilona the caretaker who showed us through the apartment, pointing out where everything was, maps, and the many "extras" contained within. To attempt to describe the level of, and finite detail which has gone into preparing this apartment for the most fastidious of guest would, I am sure, do it a dis-service. I therefore implore you to visit the website and see for yourself. We were "blown away". The apartment itself is located in a wonderful, quiet neighbourhood opposite a charming Church - however, everything is on your doorstep. Shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and transport. We have already recommended Budapest Vacation Rentals and, in particular, Apartment andrei to friends here in Western australia - and also to people we met whilst travelling. Cannot speak highly enough of this immaculate, beautifully presented and fitted out apartment.
“Better than expected...”
We ended up at apartment andrei through a booking snafu and we loved it. We thought we wanted to be closer to the downtown area in Budapest, but this apartment is in a neighborhood and suited our style much better. Location: This apartment is very conveniently located half a block from Raday street which is full of restaurants. It is also across the street from a church yard so is very quiet and peaceful. Amenities: The apartment had everything we needed for our stay including a washer and dryer. The owner provided milk, breakfast pastries, cheese, meat, coffee and tea. There was even a contact lens container and solution, should we have needed them. There are extensive information folders in the apartment, one for every little thing in the apartment, one for restaurants and entertainment in Budapest one with general information about life in Budapest. The apartment was large, the furniture comfortable and the location quiet and convenient. It is only a few blocks to the Central Market, Danube River and public transportation. We especially appreciated John's (the owner)concern for our enjoyment of "his" city. He did everything he could to make our stay perfect, including finding us a jar of Skippy peanut butter. Thank you John.
“Andrei--great apartment in Budapest!”
After choosing andrei for our Budapest stay, we had the pleasure of dealing with John. The rental arrangements were seamless as was our arrival. We were greeted by Ilona who showed us the apartment and answered any of our questions. John also had prepared us in advance with emails concerning everything from the apartment itself to shopping, sights, restaurants, etc. He also had duplicate copies of the same information in the apartment so that we had all of the information at our fingertips! The apartment is in a lovely building with elevator. Andrei is well furnished and the kitchen is modern and well equipped. The bathrooms are up to date and the water is always hot! The bed is very comfortable and the TV worked beautifully and had available a number of programs in English. The apartment is very close to central Budapest with trams/buses very close and the neighborhood abounds with shops and restaurants. My wife and I have stayed in numerous apartments throughout western and central Europe. This apartment would be a great apartment anywhere.
“Perfect stay in Budapest”
Apartment andrei was a perfect base for our 5 days in Budapest and we're happy to add our voices to the chorus of praise from previous reviewers. The apartment is elegant, spacious and comfortable and had every amenity we could possibly need. The location is excellent with a wide range of restaurants, cafes and food shopping within a few minutes' walk. John and his team make every effort to ensure their guests have a memorable experience in Budapest. Over the years we have rented quite a few apartments in Europe and this one wins in every category. We would certainly rent here again and can recommend it without reservation.
“At home in Budapest”
We have been fortunate enought to spend 5 nights in this truly amazing apartment and loved every second of it. It is equipped with everything a traveller could possibly want, with incredible trust. We wanted for nothing! The icing on the cake was the Nespresso machine & the generous offering of pods! The location is a food lover and sightseer's dream. A short stroll & you have numerous bars and restaurants from which to choose and all that we tried were excellent. Agai n we had great information from the booklets in the apartment & Soul Cafe & If we're great. We walked to most of the attractions we wanted to see and were close to public transport for the others. Budapest is a fantastic city but having the best accommodation while enjoying it made this a truly momentous experience. Thank you so much John.
“Ideal apartment to Experience Budapest”
We have rented andrei several times over the years and always relish returning to this beautiful and well appointed apartment.Though we are very familiar with the city, John Farago consistently checks in to confirm our arrival and comfort.The manager is thorough and available easily, and the driver punctual to the minute! The apartment is exquisite, from the fantastic art and furnishings, to the details of a Nespresso machine, stocked refrigerator on arrival, washer/dryer and even a computer with printer. If you need a bandaid, it's there, along with a fully equipped bathroom cabinet.The location is fantastic, beautiful, and adjacent to one of the great restaurant streets in the city.The proximity to the trams and metro to one of the great public transportation cities in Europe is right out your door.If you want to walk, you are close to great sites, the Central Market, the Danube. It is all close. Whether it is andrei or one of the other apartments in Budapest Vacation Rentals, you can't go wrong. The quality, consistency, privacy,security and locations are without a doubt the best. Don't hesitate - you will be thrilled you made this choice! The best part - it is sheer elegance of a world gone by, and you are now part of it!
“Thought of everything”
Apartment andrei had everything and more. The apartment was extremely well equipped with everything we needed. From a well equipped kitchen to extra linens, movie, books, and gamrs right down to toiletries you may have forgotten. The washer dryer and dishwasher were great to have too. John has lots of information available about the area and the apartment and is very helpful. His property manager is wonderful and I'd highly recommend having his arrange a ride from the airport as it made our arrival so simple. We would highly recommend staying here. Oh, I almost forgot the wonderful treats and the bottle of wine that awaited us upon our arrival. Such a nice touch.
“Charming view of Budapest life from the balcony”
Budapest was the favorite part of our European tour; Apt andrei was a delightful location to start and end each day. Expresso (provided) on the balcony each morning was a delightful way to see our quiet neighborhood wake. The music of children holding a parent's hand on the way to school across the church square accompanied our daily balcony ritual. In my dream of a perfect location, there would be a nearby street of bakeries, shops and of course many sidewalk cafes. About 100 feet to the left outside the door, there it is, block after block. Had there been no helpful "An Opinionated Outsider's Guide to Budapest," written by owner John Farago, or no information on reliable drivers, restaurants (Cafe alibi was one of our favorites), grocery stores, bakeries, etc., we would still have had a good experience. With them, provided by a knowledgeable host/owner, we had an extraordinary experience. There were no low points in our Prague - Budapest - Zurich - Paris trip; had to be talked into adding Budapest (the wife prevailed) and it was the clear highlight. We will be back and would not consider staying anywhere else. John and Jean have several apartments in the city; stay in one and just take their advice in every area; you cannot fail to enjoy that wonderful city.
“Andrei feels like my home in Budapest, after only 6 days.”
Our visit to Budapest this past summer was made particularly comfortable was apartment andrei. Situated across from a leafy square with a high church tower, in walking distance to the tram, pharmacy, groceries, and an aTM, the special feature is that it is in a real neighborhood, with a street of cafes, night life, musicians, and good food. Not touristy, it seemed to by frequented by Hungarians enjoying the warm summer evenings. The apartment itself was elegant, with antique side furniture, and a simple modern glass table. The rooms are generous in size, and the kitchen and bath had everything we could possibly want. Coming home to andrei at the end of a day, and having the space to relax in, on a comfortable bed and/or couch, looking out into the green leaves, sitting on the balcony to read, this made it seem that we were living in Budapest. I would rent it again. Our time in Budapest with filled with the scene of mountains and river, flat lands and unusual buildings. The people were friendly, the tram system workable, and so much to see. It is a city filled with history from many periods including trauma and oppression, freedom and pride. The people are friendly, the walking streets, the central market, the churches and statues make it a fine city for exploring.
