European apartments, as a rule, have several important differences to similar apartments in the United States.
Europeans, as a rule, don’t use window screens. In most places, but not all, there are fewer bugs than in the United States. In any event, most Europeans don’t like screens on their windows, period. Unless indicated otherwise, while your apartment may have every convenience, it will probably NOT have window screens.
Towels and linens are provided. A clean set is provided to you half way through your two week stay. Untourists staying in Prague for a week will receive towels and linens at the beginning of their stay. Maid service is not available in Untour apartments.
Reading lamps leave a lot to be desired all over Europe. We’re not quite sure why, but rather than try to reform the whole continent on behalf of our customers, we simply tell our customers: if you like to read in bed, you may want to bring a small battery-powered reading lamp like those sold in bookstores everywhere in the US.
Furnishings vary widely and according to the custom of each country. Most, but not all of our apartments are adjacent to, or near, the host’s home. Many of our apartments are furnished with family possessions, antiques, etc. This gives a very different feeling than a typical "vacation rental" property in the US…often warmer and more homey, with all the pluses and minuses that "warm and homey" imply.
Our Budapest apartments are comfortable, lovely and are centrally located. All are located on the Pest side, not too far from the all-pedestrian Vaci Street. You are within walking distance or a short bus or Metro ride from all major sites. Most Budapest vacation rentals have high ceilings, parquet floors and are decorated very tastefully.
