“Home away from home...the perfect antidote to impersonal hotels”
Like staying at an absent friend's place. John, the owner, obviously takes pride in providing a great experience for his guests, offering every convenience and comfort at the apartment that one may wish to have, even down to leaving a bottle of good local wine for you. He offers a comprehensive insider guide to the city and area, like advice one might receive from a personal friend. The apartment itself is very comfortable, tastefully furnished with antiques thoughtfully put together. Ideally located on one of the prettiest, 'tucked-away' squares in Budapest, in a convenient part of the city, 5 mins walk from Kalvin Ter metro station, Raday utca restaurants, the National Museum, Vaci utca shopping street. This is guest accommodation as it should be.
“Old world ambience with modern amenities”
Max is located in a the kind of building they don't build anymore - 19 foot ceilings and seemingly honed from solid stone. We never heard a sound from another apartment. The architect of the makeover who introduced modern conveniences while retaining the early 20th century character is to be applauded. The location is convenient, in an upscale neighborhood within walking distance of the many attractions Budapest has to offer. While the cost is perhaps a bit more than other apartments in Budapest, this is a case where the value is worth the expense. John was always very responsive to communication and accurately represented the experience with a wealth of information. Highly recommended.
“We felt as though we had entered a different time and loved bein”
We actually stayed in apartment andrei, though we were to originally stay at Max. Andrei is fantastic. The space is phenomenal! Great art, old world charm, every amenity imaginable, 19th Century flair with modern conveniences. The added touches, such as a welcome bottle of wine waiting for us after a long trip, pastries and basics such as milk, eggs, meats and cheeses for breakfast, were quite unexpected but thoroughly enjoyed. Location was great! Central to very fine restaurants. Pouring rain our first night but we found our way a few blocks from the apartment to one of the best restaurants in Budapest, in our view, Persil, not to be missed. The apartment was spacious enough for us to host 12 of my husband colleagues for drinks and dessert after dinner at a restaruant within walking distance. Everyone enjoyed the ambiance. We loved the sense of experiencing life in the country where my father was born and being in the center of things. Even ended up at an art opening in the neighborhood where we were treated like invited guests. I would recommend andrei without hesitation. Our greatest pleasure when traveling is to feel as though we truly experienced the essence of place. What more can I say? If you plan on being in Budapest, Andrei is a delighthful place to stay and inbibe.
“Perfect home and location”
Our first visit to Budapest. The owner, John Farago, was a tremendous help to us and very willing to answer the many questions we had. I can only support many of the reviews already provided: the flat is beautifully proportioned and the decor delightful as well being homely. We ate out all the time but, should you wish to prepare meals in the apartment then everything is provided. We could not have asked for a better location, across from a lovely park with a bar at its far corner, easy walking distance to many restaurants. We were met upon arrival by Ilona, again very helpful in ensuring that we were familiarised with the apartment. We loved apt Max and Budapest. I do hope we return in the future.
“Max--Relax (after walking all day!)”
Apartment Max is the perfect location for exploring Budapest. It is close to everything--hip shops, great restaurants, downtown Pest, the Central Market, the Jewish Quarter, and several modes of public transportation as well as easy walking distance to all of Pest if you are a walker. The apartment itself is stocked with every amenity you'd want or need, like a modern bathroom, air conditioning, wifi, a wonderful small balcony overlooking a great city park, comfortable beds and linens, a Nespresso machine and milk frother. Additionally, the owner has a manager who is available to help you get situated and is available during your stay to answer all questions. Honestly, we couldn't imagine a better rental situation--I forgot to mention that the owner provides an extensive, eminently readable guide to the restaurants and foodways of Budapest along with dozens of other guidebooks. We were also left with a stocked refrigerator and several breads and pastries that provided our week's breakfasts. A real hospitality treat!
“Family of five found home in Budapest”
It was our first time to Budapest as a family, but my husband had been many times to visit his relatives. We wanted a central home base near a park because we have three active kids aged 10, 8 and 5. We found home at apartment Max. We could watch the kids cross the street to go and play while relaxing on the balcony. We were steps away from the fantastic Sonka arcok restaurant (the duck breast, wow!), Jo Kenyer had fresh sour cherry buns and kifli (a crescent-shaped bun my husband loves), and there's a great place for ice cream on the next corner of the Károlyi Kert. The kids loved chilling out on the web and watching their favourite cartoons in Hungarian. The shower was fantastic. My husband and I developed a new appreciation for espresso in apt. Max. We can't wait to go back.
“Great comfort and great organization”
The place is great; very comfortable, spacious and charming. Has perfect organization and the owners go an extra mile organizing the facility and giving complete useful information.
“Lovely, spacious apartment”
An excellent place to stay in Budapest. John really has all the amenities you could think of in this apartment: great coffee, travel books, dvd's, computer access, etc... The location is excellent as well.
“Perfect place to stay while in Budapest for all categories of tr”
It was perfect culmination of our trip to Central Europe. Over just 2 weeks we went from Vienna to Bratislava to Prague and finally arrived to Budapest. John has arrange our transportation from train station. Courteous manager, Iolona, has met us their with keys. Free internet, WiFi, printer, free long distance international phone, top of the line espresso coffee machine, pastries and bread, milk and cheese in refrigerator. For travelers with 6 yo kid it was really blessing. Local tour guide met us next day in the morning. Her first words were:"You are in perfect location". We could appreciate it immediately. All major attractions are in walking distance. At the same time apartment is very quiet. Windows are facing a beautiful park. Area is very safe and secured. We will recommend this apartment to all our friends who plan to visit Budapest.
“Paradise and luxery”
After staying in apartment Max (and apartments Sara and Belle in 2009) I can honestly say that nothing else compares! John ensures that every detail is attended to. The apartment is pure luxury with beautiful furniture, a fully equipped kitchen, a computer and free phone line and a beautiful balcony view of the park across the street. The leather sectional in the living room doubles as a pull out bed and is pure comfort! Heated towels in the lovely wash room and special treats on our arrival (cheese, pastries, and wine) just added to the charm. The location was perfect...we walked everywhere. John supplied us with detailed recommendations for dining, touring around and cultural highlights. He also arranged for our cab ride to and from the airport. We have rented vacation apartments across Europe, the USa and Canada. Nothing compares to apartment Max and the amazing city of Budapest!
