Design Apartments Budapest
Ranked #387 of 672 Speciality Lodging in Budapest
Reviewed 3 October 2017

Four of us stayed here for 4 nights in September and found the apartments to be definitely different. The apartments have been very well thought out and designed, with excellent use of space. My apartment was very comfortable and well furnished and everywhere was clean. Very reasonable prices too. Would recommend for anyone who enjoys a bit of fun and something out of the ordinary. Not your typical hotel room.

We've spent 4 nights at the design apartments and we really enjoyed the place. It's very central and the room was well furbished and clean. The facade of the building can be a bit scary at the first sight but inside, it's very quiet with a pleasant courtyard. We definitely recommend this place for a stay in Budapest !

I stayed with my wife for 3 nights and our room (airplane room) was completely dirty and the walls really need to be painted. The room smells very weird and I think it's because they allowed to smoke in carpets rooms.
The only good thing is the location.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a group - we rented the Pop-Art, Romantic & Diamond design apartments. The owner was there to meet us and we checked in early without any issues. The apartments were lovely, great design and clean throughout with free wifi. They are in a good location very close to shops, bars and sights with a nearby metro station linking you to the rest of the city. We would definitely stay here again!

I was there for five nights and I realized very fast that I made the wrong decision to stay here.
As I entered the room I thought that it was okay. - But then I saw the dirt on the floor, under the bed and in the bathroom. Lots of long hairs were on the floor and when you walk barefoot you feel all the dirt things on your feet. As I checked the bed I saw some thick and ugly hairs (not from someones head...) and the pillows are so uncomfortable that I took the blanket as additional pillow.

In my second night I woke up because of extremely heave noise from my "neigborhood" (they were in the other two apartments). They screamed and laughed, made party until 2:30 am. Bad night, bad hygiene, bad smell. But this is not all: the biggest problem here are the BED MUGS! I woke up with lots of itching , red picks (you can see them on the pictures).

I would not recommend this apartment to someone else. And I won't book it again. It's my fourth night now and maybe I'll leave one day eralier. But I want a refund.

Dear Ona Zardinoni,

Thank you for taking time to share your experiences about our apartment with other travelers. Let me kindly respond to your mentioned problems.

Regarding to the cleanliness: we take care a lot about this issue, and anytime we hear a negative feedback about cleanliness we need to know about it as soon as possible in order to be able to provide better services to our guests always. Ona, unfortunately we have not heard any problems regarding cleanliness from you during your 5-day long stay, but we talked a couple of times and we were in touch. As you know the apartment price includes cleaning fee before the stay, but we can provide cleaning service anytime during the day. If you would have mentioned this problem to us, we would have solved it for free of charge of course as our guests' comfort is our most important goal.

Regarding the comfort of our pillows. We have never received any negative comments about our pillows. We have used the same brand of pillows in every of our apartments in the last few years, but we will retest their comfort in order to provide proper comfort, and will do our best to fix this issue as soon as possible.

Regarding the heavy noise of the neighbours. In the hour (when we read your letter about the neighbour problem) we got to know about this problem from you we sent our colleague to the apartment to solve this case immediately. My colleague warned the guests that if they do not stop bothering our other guest and start to respect our house rules, we will need to send them way from our apartments for unacceptable and unrespectful behaviour. Fortunately, our guests understood the imortance of our rules, and we did not have any further problems with them afterwards. We did our best to solve this problem, and we could solve it in 1 and a half hour after we received your letter about this problem.

Regarding the bugs. As we mentioned it to you before, we have not had any bugs in any of our apartments before. We cleaned your apartment 10 hours later (we received your letter about this case at midnight) and tried to call a bug expert to the apartment, but we could not find any bug experts who could have come to the apartment on the weekend (it was Saturday, when we received your letter). This is Monday today, the bug expert just left the apartment. He fixed this issue, and he informed us about the bugs. As we did not have any bugs in our apartments before we do not know where they came from, but the bug expert informed us that they could come for instance from the walls, or from any of our guests, even from you as well. Unfortunately, we will not ever be able to get to know where they came from, but fortunately we could fix this issue in 1 day, and all of our apartments are completely bug free.

Ona, thank you again for leaving a review about us as every feedback means a lot to us in order to be able to provide better services day by day. You need to know that we always do our best to provide comfort stay for our guests, and so we did it at your stay as well. We are sorry for any caused inconveniences, and we trust in that once you will change your mind and visit us again. We are looking forward to welcome you again to show you that we can provide anyone a comfortable stay!

All the best to you,

Attila Pozsonyi/Owner and Designer of the Design Apartments Budapest
