Budapest apartment description

This squeaky clean apartment is legally registered with local authorities under registration #25-II/18/2005 and received the 'apartmant de luxe' status by exceeding the requirements for such rating. For your own protection, always make sure that the apartment you rent for your vacation is legally registered for such purpose!

The completely renovated (rebuilt), Western standard apartment is situated in the downtown 'Palota Negyed' or Palace Quarter in the 'heart of Budapest' as the Budapest Sun calls the part of this lovely district.

(Muzeum korut's East side, 'Rakoczi ut' South side, Jozsef korut's West side, Ulloi ut's North side provide the four borders of Palota Negyed. Here you will find the Italian Culture Center, the Hungarian Radio, the old National Museum, lovely 'walk only' streets, synagogues and churches, restaurants and pubs.)

The apartment itself is on the fourth floor (with elevator access) of a traditional, brick 19th. Century apartment building on Jozsef krt, facing the courtyard. Peaceful, quite, meticulously clean and very practical are the words that best describes this lovely apartment.

Less than a block away from the subway, streetcars and buses, walking distance to museums, to the famed and newly reopened New York Cafe (Boscolo's new Hotel New York), Hauer Cafe, Museum of Applied Arts (the famous art deco exhibition), Great Synagogue and more, the apartment is ideally located.

If you feel like shoping, there is the newly reopened classical Hungarian department store, Skala-Corvin, and a Farmer's market just a block away, as well as smaller department stores.

The bedroom contains a large double bed, nighttables, and a closet. The bathroom is set with glass mosaic tiles, wall hang toilet, and tiled shower. The living room contains a sofabed, television, dvd player, and there is a dining room table with chairs and an open concept kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, caffe maker, plates, dishes and cutlery. Your apartment contains a small built-in safe for your convenience.

We provide linens, towels and other necessities. The apartment has its private heating system, air-conditioner and its own washer and dryer. Your local host lives in the building, and if there is anything you may need you should not hesitate to contact your hosts, as they would be more than happy to arrange taxis, make reservations to restaurants and cultural events.

- Wireless, high speed Internet line access.
- If you prefer daily cleaning, it could be arranged for a nominal fee.
- For parking we use two close by, monitored garages for a nominal fee.

Our rates are very competitive and additional discounts may apply depending on the length of your stay. Please, do not hesitate to inquire about our specials.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION (1-2 minutes away): Subway - M2 Red Line; Streetcars - 4,6; Buses - Express 7, 7, 173; Streetcars - 28, 37, 37A, 62
BICYCLE RENTAL (1 km away): 18 Wesselenyi utca

'Your apartment was absolutely perfect and quiet. We spent a very relaxing week in Budapest and will certainly come back soon.' Roland & Ursula - Switzerland

'..The apartment was perfect, thanks to you.'
Hamida & Sébastien - France - January 29

'We choose your apartment because the apartment we rent usually was not available. Yours is interesting, quiet, in the middle of the city, wand the washing machine is a great idea. If you want to sell it someday, please let me know. We could be interested.' Andre - UK

'We just arrived home in Canada and want to thank you for your help in making our trip to Budapest just super. Your apartment was well equipped with everything we needed. It was extremely clean and comfortable and the location was easy walking distance to just about everywhere. Your help and tips in advance of the trip made everything smooth and Georgy's hospitality while there made us feel completely relaxed.' Rosanne and Dan - Ottawa, Canada

' We had an amazing time in Budapest staying in a terrific apartment centrally located on the Pest side of Budapest. It was quiet, centrally located and terrifically fitted out with everything one could want - a home away from home and having a washing machine and dryer was absolutely wonderful. Supermarkets, ATM machines and public transport were at your doorstep and we would recommend this apartment to the most discerning traveller. ' A&JB from Melbourne, Australia

                              Manager info

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About: This is me, Eva with my two girls and with my adorable husband, who was a good sport, when I said 'I thought we should buy an apartment in Budapest.' Although he has said 'I know I cannot win, I will either have to listen to you telling me what a great opportunity we passed on, or I have to listen to you telling me what a great idea this was...'

                              Why Budapest:
                              I grew up in Budapest. For that matter I grew up in this apartment building, built in the beginning of the last Century. I left Hungary a long time ago but I never gave up visiting my parent, my sister and other family members, and certainly did not give up on introducing Hungary to my kids. I kept flying back almost every year, and when this apartment right next door to my parents came up for sale I grabbed the opportunity to 'own a piece' of the 'Old Country'. I love to take my kids to Budapest, and I would never choose an other location than this apartment. It is safe, quite, and close to everything without the hassle of the tourist traps, the noise and lack of transportation. Not at last this property is legal. It has been registered with the local authorities, so rest assured, we are paying taxes, and you are contributing to the local economy (as cheesy as it sounds.)

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              Contrary to any advertising you will read, Budapest does not have a Downtown. It does have a tourist center with all the expensive stores, restaurants, and entertainment but the major attractions are scattered around the city, so if you are not keen to stay where all the tourists are staying, this is the place for you. The subway, streetcar, busses are two minutes away, and you can reach downtown by transportation or by walking. For that matter some of the museums, cafes, farmer market, and other attractions are closer or as easy to reach from here than from many of the properties that you can rent for more. The apartment is 2 blocks away from the New York Cafe (Bosco), 2 streetcar stops (or a short walk) from the Museum of Applied Arts, same distance to the Large Synagogue, the farmer's market is almost just across the street, fantastic restaurants, like Fulemule, just around the corner.....
