Budapest condo description

Our lovely Chain Bridge Apartment is available for vacation and longer-term rentals. The one-bedroom apartment is located in central Buda, just steps from the Castle, the Danube, the Chain Bridge, and within a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just a short walk over the bridge will bring you to central Pest. It's one of the city’s oldest and most atmospheric neighborhoods, with narrow staircases leading up to the Castle and numerous restaurants and cafés. The building is well-served by public transportation, but you may find that you'd just prefer to walk everywhere! There are playgrounds in the neighborhood to entertain the children, and plenty of pubs to occupy the adults.

Located in a classic early-20th-century building, the apartment overlooks one of the building’s two courtyards, making it secluded and quiet. With original hardwood floors, doors, windows and elegant high ceilings, staying here will make you feel like a local.


The apartment has recently been renovated (though the old features that make it so charming have been kept intact), and is newly furnished. The sunny bedroom sleeps two on a queen bed, and an additional two can sleep on the foldout couch in the spacious living room. A portable crib can be provided on request.

Take advantage of Budapest's wonderful food markets by picking up fresh local ingredients and bringing them back to your own kitchen to try your hand at preparing the local cuisine. The eat-in kitchen is well-equipped with a full-sized oven, stove, and refrigerator; a microwave, coffee maker, and toaster; and plenty of dishes and utensils. If there are any special cooking utensils you might need, we can supply them from our own collection.

The apartment also includes free wireless Internet; a landline which you can use to make FREE PHONE CALLS TO THE USA AND CANADA; use of a Hungarian mobile phone (you pay for the minutes....you can top-it up at any ATM machine); a washing machine; a flat-screen television with cable and DVD player; a stereo with an ipod connector; a small DVD/CD/Budapest guidebook selection; a full bathroom with claw-foot tub and hairdryer; plenty of linens and towels; and an iron and board. There is no cleaning fee.

The apartment is situated on the second floor, and there is no elevator.

We (Carolyn and Gábor) are an American/Hungarian couple who live in Budapest with our two daughters and newborn son. We love to travel, explore Budapest, eat good food, and drink nice wine. We run a culinary tour company, so luckily we get to spend lots of time researching and tasting the foods and wines of Hungary (as well as the surrounding countries)! We live in the same neighborhood as our rental apartment, so we are easily accessible to show you the ropes in Budapest and give you the lowdown on all of the best places to seek out in the neighborhood, as well as the country. Carolyn is a food/travel writer so can fill you in on what is happening in Budapest (and beyond) while you'll be in town.

                              About the owner: We (Carolyn and Gábor) are an American/Hungarian couple who live in Budapest with our two daughters and newborn son. We love to travel, explore Budapest, eat good food, and drink nice wine. We run a culinary tour company, so luckily we get to spend lots of time researching and tasting the foods and wines of Hungary (as well as the surrounding countries)!

                              Why the Owner Chose Budapest:
                              The apartment is meant to be a place for visiting family to stay when they come to visit. We chose this apartment because we couldn't resist its fantastic location, the gorgeous (and quiet!) early 20th century building, and the cozy apartment itself, which has high ceilings, original parquet floors, and elegantly tall windows and doors.
