We had never travelled to Budapest before and did not know what to expect from the apartment. John was very helpful offering to arrange transport for the transfer from the airport and even checking if we prefer red wine or white upon arrival! His apartment manager was there to meet us and show us how everything worked. It is the small touches that were really appreciated as well as the wine there was milk eggs fruit bread butter and salami. A lovely coffee machine with a range of coffees too. The apartment can be entered from the street from one of two entrances through a beautiful old courtyard and the apartment itself is on the ground floor with a secure gate. There is a wealth of information on getting around and where to eat shop and see the sights. We settled in really quickly and felt at home. There is a telephone/computer and a huge range of films for guests to use. John came around one of the days and offered us free tickets for the Symphony that evening that he couldnt use! The apartment has good quality furniture lovely feather pillows and big fluffy towels. It is right in the middle of the city but is very quiet and very well placed for the underground or buses to get around (we walked mostly everywhere no problems bring good walking shoes) Would highly recommend Olive for couples or small families. Fabulous well done John and Jeanie we will be back!

“Comfort & Affordability in a Central Location- What more could one ask for?”

Our recent trip to Budapest was a huge success do to our stay at Apt. Olive-City Hall. Our apartment was incredibly comfortable, reasonably priced and amazingly situated in the center of Budapest. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding neighborhoods, which are filled with great eateries, stores and historic attractions. To make things even better, public transportation is right around the corner. I would highly recommend this location to anyone who is looking for an ideal place to stay while in Budapest.

“Marvellous”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Fabulous little apartment in the middle of Budapest which had everything we wanted and more. Lots of extras such as coffee and items in the fridge made it feel like home from home. Would recommend getting the taxi direct through John as it was so easy once we arrived in the city. The Christmas Markets were lovely with good atmosphere. I would recommend the Gerloczy Cafe and in particular the squid salad and hot and spicy pork ribs with green mustard lentils... gorgeous. Everything is well priced in the city and we struggled to spend our spending money. Fantastic little haven worth a visit and thank you John, Ilona and Alajos for making our stay so comfortable.

John is THE most wonderful host and I was glad to have had the opportunity to meet him for a short chat. The booking, check-in and check out was efficient and well organized. Ilona, the manager, was most helpful and always willing to assist with anything that you would need during your stay. I spent a perfect one month in Budapest and I am sure that I would not have enjoyed it as much if I had not stayed here. The apartment is the perfect size for a couple. The bathroom is big and well designed. There are some some toothbrushes, floss, shaving cream, etc. in the cupboard. The room has a double bed and a pc with internet (superfast wifi), a webcam and headphones with a mike. I think John has set up a printer in the office next door as well. The apartment has a washing machine (and washing liquid), a drying rack, a travel iron, ironing board so you don't have to bother with a laundry. The central heating is really good! There's a nespresso machine with a lot of pods and a milk frother! There's a tv with english satellite channels (which you can also connect to the PC), a dvd machine with lots of dvds to choose from, a bookshelf with travel guides, some novels and board games. There's a landline that you can use for international calls to almost 60 countries i think. There's also a moblie phone with credit that comes in very handy! The kitchenette is perfect with an awesome stove, a micro, fridge/freezer and enough cutlery for four. John provides you with a few breakfast things like eggs, yogurt, pastries, salt, pepper, sugar, tea bags, etc. so you don't have to run around after a long flight! The location is PERFECT! 2 mins walking distance from the metro station, about 5mins from the main street Vaci ut, John gives you a good list of close restaurants and supermarkets and other shops that you might like.

Some advice for budapest: Do cash exchange in the city -- the rate they give you is almost the same as what you would google. The public transport system is excellent but it might make the city seem more complicated than it is. Walk around and try the free walking tour if you only have a few days in the city. They will show you the main sites and give you advice about more things to do. It runs twice everyday and is really excellent! The opera is a must see. I think it has the 3rd best acoustics in europe. The 4dx cinema is really cool! If you are a student from any country then go to the MUPA (palace of the arts) for any show that interests you and standing room tickets are only 500forints! They even let you sit if there are empty seats ;) A really good indian restaurant is the Taj mahal - decent prices and authentic food. If you are a student I think its definitely worthwhile to get the ISIC card or take your European student card because there are student discounts on public transport, cinemas, baths, museums, etc.
