If you like 1960's Soviet chic/decor this may be the place for you. On the plus side the flat represented value for money and the landlady was kind and helpful. On the minus side it was smelly (old cigarette smoke ?) the double bed was extremely uncomfortable and the location is In a fairly grungy area near a large train station.
We had a very enjoyable stay in this lovely spacious apartment. Julia is fantastic - she let us enough food for supper and breakfast because we arrived late evening. Wifi availability was excellent. locality includes shops and bars and railway station, bus station and metro are a few minutes walk away from the flat. everything was perfect.

We loved staying at the Westend! It's lovely, quiet, and in an ideal location. We explored much of the city by foot while staying here for a week. Julia and Gabor, the owners of the flat, are really friendly and helpful. When our flight was delayed by two days, they let us adjust our dates without penalty. The flat itself has beautiful windows and extraordinary tall ceilings. It's located on a quiet street in the heart of Budapest. This is a perfect place to stay. When we come back to Budapest, we will definitely stay here again.

The apartment is very spacious, with beautiful tall walls, and an internal feeling as if you were still before 1950s. The tapestry, the tall windows and doors add to this. The apartment is located in a quiet place right next to the west railway station, and a great & cheap parking place, this was important for us as we traveled by car. Because of its great placing, we were able to walk to some tourist sights like the 'Hosok tere'.
In total we were 4, but there was place for 5 people to sleep. Even though we arrived later than planned, the host was waiting for us. Another thing about the host is, that she is exceptional, she explained everything in detail, and gave us excellent hints on what to visit, where to eat, how to get around, and where to shop.
The payment was done right when we did the reservation, and no extra guaranty fee was required.
