“Hard to Better!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed there for 6 days.

It is very central.
It fronts a quiet courtyard, opposite the City Hall.

It is difficult to imagine a better equipped holiday apartment. microwave, refrigerator, washer/ drier, cook-top, a/c. Cutlery, crockery and cooking necessities.

The owner provides a welcome package, and bottle of wine - as standard, no cost.

Location.
Within easy stroll of two metro stations. About 2 minutes from the main restaurant strip.
Quiet courtyard, closed to non- residents at dusk every evening.

In all honesty it is difficult to imagine a better priced, equipped, located apartment in this or any other city.

BUT - there is more. The owner supplies extensively researched information ( both electronically, and through the Internet, on the apartment.

Of course wifi is available, and reliable - at no additional cost.

I could go on - but I hope I've already conveyed the fact that our stay in Budapest was made absolutely perfect by our choice to stay in Apartment Olive.

I'm more than happy to answer e-mailed questions.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Management Response
6 Aug 2013
While we are deeply appreciative of all of our guests' comments, and try to live up to the positive ones and address swiftly any underlying causes of any problems expressed in negative ones, we generally don't post responses (even though FlipKey/TripAdvisor urges all owners to do so).

I have spent several years designing and developing online courses, and believe that forums such as this one are most useful, and invite and encourage the most honest and engaged input, when they are I moderated and when Big Brother stays clear of the dialogue.

So, we encourage every single one of our guests, whatever their experience, to participate in forums, write trip reports online, review our flats and other places they have visited, and generally share their experience and assessment with other, future, travelers. Online vacation rentals are not real estate, they are transactions in trust, and you -- those considering our apartments -- are entitled to the widest range of honest reportage that we can help foster. You will not like our apartments, much less care about them as we do -- and we love them as though they were the family members they are named after -- if you arrive with false expectations.

So why break silence to respond here? Really, just to note that the Olive flat has a (small) washer, but no dryer. If that's a problem for you, our other listed flats --SarahBelle, Max, and Andrei all have dryers. Olive has a drying rack (and ironing board, and iron ...) but no dryer.

“Not to worry, they thought of everything!”
Reviewed 3 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is a compact apartment located in the center of town. While the outside of the building may appear less than perfect, I assure you that the apartment is. It has all the modern touches and a great bed. We had a bottle of wine and supplies for a meal waiting for us, so we didn't have to forage for food or a restaurant after we got in. Nice touch. Whether you needed an umbrella, a cellphone, a razor, Qtips, or a frother for your cappuccino it was all there. Everything about the rental details was professional, efficient and friendly. John provided us with a lot of travel help even before we arrived. Apartment Olive made our stay in Budapest a memorable one.
