Grand Hotel Budapest is well-located just a block down from the St. Ishtvan Church and its large square with multiple restaurants (& Starbucks!), so public transport is close by. The building is 4-storied, with stairs and a small lift, and has a central courtyard which always seemed quiet. We took a taxi (arranged by Greg) from the airport on our arrival due to the lateness of the hour, but on departure opted to take the metro and bus connection to the airport, which took about 30-40 minutes door-to-door. The apartment is comfy, with a master bedroom with queen sized bed, desk, and one bedlamp, as well as a spacious mirrored walk-in closet to hang/store all your things; another bedroom with queen bed and one bedlamp near the kitchen, with an armoire and hanging rack to store things; and a tiny (seemingly rarely used) third bedroom accessible through the storage hallway at the other end of the kitchen, outfitted with a very firm twin bed beside a small table with lamp. Each of these rooms has a window(s) that can be opened to allow fresh air circulation, particularly at night, as there is no air-conditioning. Note for older folks: each of the larger beds is a bit lower to the ground than most American beds, thus likely only problematic for those with creaky knees:). The air handler in the living room was acting up, but Greg was going to have it looked at, as it could potentially cool the communal space when needed. The living room has a large flat screen TV (we never even turned it on!), several books to peruse, two large couches (that double as beds if needed), 2 leather armchairs with ottomans, and a large wooden coffee table. Wifi access was good. The kitchen has a gas stove, separate oven, old-fashioned expresso maker (ie, no drip coffee maker), small fridge, and had enough dishes/pots/glasses for our needs. The foyer has a table with some magazines and local brochures, a coat-stand, and two doors facing the entry: one to the WC and one to the bathroom, with one sink, a deep narrow tub with shower/hose, cabinet for storage, and clothes-washer. The washer was ideal for small loads of undies/socks/drip-dry items that could then be hung on the collapsible drying rack: it was warm/hot enough in Budapest during our recent visit that things dried relatively completely overnight!
All in all, our family of five had a great visit in Budapest, thoroughly enjoyed living in this homey AirBnb apartment, and appreciated Greg's responsiveness to our questions when they arose. We hope to return in the future!
