Delightful 1 bedroom flat in the heart of Pest. Close to Vaci Utca and amenities.
Very walkable area. Pull out sofa very comfortable. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and some snacks. A home away from home with a lovely CD collection, a plethora of books on Budapest and Hungary, an international phone, and a computer with WiFi
situated in a great spot and within walking distance to the sights
had a 60's feel about the complex where the unit was... kind of cold war era ?
it added to the charm and the experience
the unit was small but comfy and had everything you need.
We had a great stay in Budapest in this apartment. It is really cozy and the furnishing of the apartment is really thoughtful, there is basically anything you could possibly need. The apartment is really close to the centre, and right next to a metro station, but it is still really quiet and you can't hear anything of the busy city surrounding you. I would book it again anytime!
On arrival we found Apartment Olive to be a small comfortable well equipped apartment with good security. There was a welcoming small supply of provisions in the fridge which was greatly appreciated. You will even find a spa bag with towels for a relaxing day at the hot-spring baths. Wi-fi, a computer, phones and power adaptors were available and John had provided a folder which contained a wealth of information for getting around Budapest.
The location of the apartment is great. We used public transport only twice during our week in Budapest. Turn R) and walk a few metres to the main road, turn R) cross the road at the pedestrian lights there is a supermarket and a large bakery next door. Turn L) out the door and a few metres down is a supermarket, turn L) again and walking down towards the river you will find a street full of restaurants and fashion shops.
There are so many interesting places within easy walking distance of Apartment Olive, such as the Market Hall and Parliament House, as well walking over the bridges to Gellert Baths and Buda Castle. There are excellent views of the city from Buda castle and the museum is certainly worth a visit.
I have no hesitation in recommending Apartment Olive as a comfortable place to stay, in an easy location for getting around Budapest.
Many thanks John, we enjoyed our stay in Apartment Olive and had a great holiday in Budapest.
We stayed in Apartment Olive for 8 days from 30 December 2015.
There is so much to love about this apartment. The apartment is on the ground floor in a historic building with an interior courtyard. There is lift access for apartments on upper floors.
The apartment is tastefully furnished with antiques. It is charming, cozy, quiet and comfortable.
The shower was huge with a proper shower head not the hand held shower nozzles you see everywhere else in Europe.
There were bound notes on every aspect of not only the apartment but also every conceivable question you may have when you are in Budapest from medical services to ATMs to dining suggestions and shopping.
Our every need was taken into account - there were guidebooks galore; cook books; books about Hungary and other reading material. There was a washing machine; computer with internet access; hair dryer; various toiletries in the bathroom; towels if we had wanted to avail ourselves of the various thermal spas, all ready to go in a beach bag.
There was a Nespresso machine with coffee pods, tea bags; dishwashing liquid; laundry liquid; mobile phone; local landline with free calls to the US and various other countries.
Upon arrival we were greeted by the property manager who provided explanations regarding the apartment.
To our delight, the fridge had been stocked with fresh smallgoods, butter, milk, pastries and cheese; a loaf of bread was on the counter and a bottle of wine on the shelf.
The location is superb on Varoshaz Utca, close to transport links, restaurants, supermarkets and the shopping in Vorosmarty Square. It was within walking distance of the Jewish Quarter, the Great Hall markets, the Erszebet Bridge. It was close enough to the tourist hub to access the various restaurants and sites yet far enough away to feel like you were part of everyday life in Budapest.
Even when just making enquiries, John the owner, replied within hours to any enquiries we had about the apartment and Budapest itself.
John was available at any time throughout our stay to answer any questions we had.
Apartment Olive was also unbeatable value.
We loved our stay in Budapest and Apartment Olive so much that we are already planning our next visit. Hopefully the secret of how great this apartment is won't get out and it will still be available for our next visit.
