“Perfect location and very confortable accomodation”
Reviewed 14 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My wife and I stayed in the Olive apartment recently while we were in Budapest. It is perfectly located in Pest and allows you to walk everywhere. John (owner) has a personal touch ensuring that everything you need is right there when you arrive. From the fresh pastries, travel information, the coffee maker to the computer and phone systems - you will find Olive a wonderful place to stay. John was very easy to communicate with and even called when we arrived to make sure everything was fine. It is all close by - great restaurants, local wine shops and the fabulous Great Market Hall. Olive is excellent value and it allows you to enjoy Budapest as it was meant to be - like a local.

“Ideal haven”
Reviewed 17 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Apartment Olive is a real little gem situated right in the heart of Pest.
The apartment is quite small but fine for two people - three at a pinch. What it lacks in size is made up for in facilities. John, the owner has thought of everything a weary traveller might need from spa bag with towels to spare toiletries. My wife was delighted to find there was an easy to use computer and free phone calls.
We were met by John's charming agent who greeted us with wine and pastries (oh yes, and the fridge was well stocked with essentials to get us going). To top it all off, John himself phoned us from the USA to make sure everything was alright.
The building complex comprises two interconnected courtyards and seems to be very old and rather neglected though I thought this only added to its charm. In contrast to some of its neighbours, Olive is well maintained and is done out in the style of a traditional Hungarian apartment.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend apartment Olive to any prospective visitors to Budapest.

“Central with good transport links”
Reviewed 9 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

A lovely apartment and the best of welcomes. A great place to get acquainted with Buda and Pest. The only criticism would be one side of the very comfortable bed was placed against the wall, so one out of two people must be prepared to climb in or jump into it. Pull out bed available if you can't manage it. Lots of in house facitities.

“Amazing apartment, amazing owner!”
Reviewed 3 February 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We can't emphasize enough that this apartment was absolutely perfect. So much of what made our stay in Budapest so fantastic had to do with Jon's apartment. First of all the location is second to none, being so close to the beautiful neighborhoods and attractions of Pest, and very close to the city's tram lines. Jon's desire for his guests to have an authentic experience, highlighted by his booklets explaining the finer points of the city's attractions, food, and everything else it has to offer, were priceless. Every restaurant recommended was delicious, every attraction was fantastic. We would recommend this rental to anyone who wants a true home away from home.
