Good location, in the middle of the city. Restaurants, bars and clubs near. Free wifi, and clean rooms.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2010

We saw all the great reviews and decided to give it a try for about a weeks stay in Budapest.
This Apartment Hotel has dual personalities, during the week its ok. BUT on the weekends there are groups of young men & women (20 somethings) that rent it and party into the early morning. On Friday and Saturday nights there were parties every night. I can see why a group would rent the apartment, get 4 - 6 people in one apartment and it becomes dirt cheap on a per person basis. The apartment comes with a refrigerator for your party trays and beverages. We were serenaded at 1am with a bad rendition of "Born in the USA", the parties spread into the halls and around the large central staircase near the elevators and returning home from dinner you run the gauntlet of inebriated young adults asking you about things too personal for discussion among strangers. If you have kids not the trip home you'd prefer.
Other than this the other complaint I have is that we rented a studio apartment for 5 nights and were not aware that the bed would be a sofabed (2 inch mattress on cold pipes that pull out from under the sofa). Not the most comfortable sleep when the bar in the middle keeps your pelvis higher than both your head and feet.
This is not a Hotel, its a management company renting out apartment units for short-term stays. This means that there is no one there after business hours. They have an emergency number for you to call, but you will need your own phone as there is none in the apartment (i.e. couldn't call about the noise at night and hoped that someone with a phone would call). Also, you need to have the address when looking for the place. There is no sign that is readily visible from the street. When you get into the Apartment entry way you see a sign on the wall by the intercom with the information. There actually seems to be 3 or more management companies that are operating in this building. You call the apartment that is their office and they buzz you in. Then give you your apartment key and off you go. No one to take your luggage, in case you are a high maintenance traveler.
The staff were very helpful and can provide you with all sorts of sightseeing advice and tickets. They actually were exceptional, but were not onsite after hours.
I'm not recommending this because there are too many "ifs" when making this decision...If you are in your 20's and want to stay with your buddies and have a cheap place to party on the weekend then this is for you. If you are not in your 20's then...if its a weekday and if you don't mind a sofabed then fine, if you have kids better off only on the weekdays and give them the sofabed (I'm assuming that the 1 bedroom units have a real bed in the room).
Also, there was a construction project going on in the back of the building and if you are not an early riser plan to be awaken with power tools. Not sure when the construction will end, but they had temporary buildings brought in so it may be a while.
We really liked having a kitchen as we do coffee in the mornings and tea at night and cheaper European hotels don't provide tea/coffee service.
The place itself was clean and roomy and would be recommended if it wasn't for the weekend noise and sofabed.
Also one of the recommended restaurants for local cuisine in the apartment's booklet is the Kispipa restaurant down the street. Check your bill the waitress pads it with additional taxes and service charges if you are a tourist!

Great apartments. We had a spacious apartment with a big bed, big bathroom and great kitchen. It was nice to have the balcony as well. It was all very clean and the staff couldn't have been more accomodating and friendly! It was great. To be pedantic there were a few things falling apart, handles on doors, the shower holder etc but it didn't bother us that much.

Close to the metro, lots of restaurants and supermarkets. Close walk into the main street and an easy walk to the park and sechnyi baths.

Again the staff were lovely - so helpful, friendly and nice to us!!! Best staff I have encountered!!

We found Akacfa apartments on the last leg of our holiday in Budapest. It was very relaxing and brought great comfort to us after staying in very small living quarters with my aunt. We are definitely going to come back and stay at the Akacfa Holiday Apartments. It is very affordable and has all of the amenities and comforts of home. The staff is incredible and very helpful.
Thank You to the Staff of Akacfa Holiday Apartments.

Fantastic apartments, walking distance to lots of tourist attractions and easy to get around as near a tram/metro. Went with friends and we booked 2 two-bedroom apartments. When we arrived, we were told that they couldn't provide this, and gave us one two-bedroom, one one-bedroom and a studio apartment. They were all great, but the two-bedroom was fantastic - lots of space as the bedrooms are on one floor and the ground floor has a lounge and kitchen, and second toilet. Such good value for money as we paid EUR330 for three nights for all three rooms! Kitchen was well equipped with microwave, toaster, coffee maker, fridge and stove. Staff were very friendly and helpful when we needed more towels and sheets.
