  • Comfortability, Affordability and a Central Location in Budapest

    "Our recent trip to Budapest was a huge success do to our stay at Apt. Olive-City Hall. Our apartment was incredibly comfortable, reasonably priced and amazingly situated in the center of Budapest. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding neighborhoods, which are filled with great eateries, stores and historic attractions. To make things even better, public transportation is right around the corner. I would highly recommend this location to anyone who is looking for an ideal place to stay while in Budapest."

  • Would plan a trip around this apartment!

    "The allure of this apartment (Andrei) helped draw us to Budapest, and it exceeded our expectations. The apartment is tasteful and comfortable, and we felt at home from the moment we arrived. It is also matched with a terrific support system reflecting the owners’ commitment to travellers using one of their apartments. After a long flight, the airport pickup, food and wine in the refrigerator, and the comforts and amenities of the apartment provided an easy transition to Budapest. We especially loved the exquisite 26’ long balcony, with statues, shade, a sitting area, and a view overlooking the lovely church in Bakats Tér as well as quiet street life. We began our days with coffee and pastries on the balcony, and returned in the evenings to plan dinner or just decompress, and to listen to the music at the weekend festivals. The neighborhood is very appealing, lying just outside the tourist bubble. Our first local walks took us to bakeries, chocolate stores, galleries, cafes, a contemporary dance & visual arts center, and restaurants (we enjoyed the Petrus on Berzenczey at Ferenc Tér) mostly oriented to neighborhood residents. John’s enthusiasm for helping others discover Budapest is reflected in his detailed online advice (his orientation to Metro tickets and inspectors is a small masterpiece of travel literature), but also in his focus on individual needs and tastes; John even arranged a key research contact through his extensive network of friends. Most of all, the apartment itself is the draw: Andrei is worth planning a trip around!"

  • Great time in Budapest

    "I recently spent with my family (2 children and a husband) a 10 day vacation in this unbelievable apartment. First of all the location is excellent, in the middle of the city center, yet the apartment is located in a quiet building on the top floor, so we had a very peaceful set up. I go to Pest frequently and so far for the money I paid this was the best location/accommodation. 1 minute to the Andrassy street, 2 min to Gozsdu garden , great place to hang out or just have a beer. The owner and his sister (Timea) was very hands-on. She is very responsible, and responsive in addressing any questions, requests before we checked in and also during our stay. Any time we had a question it was answered by email within minutes. Everything was fully functional in the apartment (wifi, washer, airconditioner ), and was extremely clean. We had a great time, they gave us recommendations (where to go, what to see, eat, arranged for taxi pickups). On top of it we got a crazy good deal, and the price was much less than other apartments in this neighborhood. Yes, there are steps to climb, but they gave us a deal to compensate for the lack of elevator. We did not mind it, we are used to going up 3 flights of stairs. I will definitely stay here next time I am in Budapest and will recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for the great time!"

Budapest Travel Tips

Enjoy the Historical Heritage near Budapest Vacation Rentals

Budapest is a city that can trace its earliest origins as far back and the 3rd and 4th century BC. The Eravasi, an early cultured Celtic tribe, is believed to have settled on Gellert Hill, on the banks of the Danube during this time. Later, the Romans built a settlement in an area that is today Obuda. It was then invaded and developed by the Monguls, oppressed by the Turks and finally unified into the city of Budapest in the late 1800s. Budapest has always been a city of culture, arts and learning. Academies and theaters were always an integral part of the city. It is this heritage that still prevails today as seen in the city’s ornate architecture and many cultural attractions; it’s a place for art enthusiasts, academics, music lovers and history buffs.

Traveling to Budapest Lodging

Budapest International Airport is 10 miles to the southeast of the city center. There are two main terminals which host international airlines as well as low-cost regional airlines. There are good public transport links between the airport and the city. Your best option is to purchase a travel pass on arrival at the airport which is valid for all public transport systems in Budapest. This can amount to significant savings. Trains and buses form part of the network, providing transports to and from the airport and run throughout the day. Taxis also provide private transfers into the city. If you are already in Europe, you can get to Budapest by rail or coach or by cruising on the Danube. These are the more scenic ways to arrive in the city.

Convenience of Budapest Vacation Apartments

Budapest is one of those travel destinations where you are likely to spend most of your days out and about sightseeing. It makes the world of difference to know you have your own private apartment to come home to in the evenings. Be able to relax on your balcony with a glass of wine and watch the sunset over the city skyline. Most rental apartments are centrally located near major tourist sites. Invariably, they are tastefully furnished with most modern conveniences. Catering is made simple as you can get supplies from the local grocer or street markets in town. Rental homes range in size and can be the perfect place for a romantic getaway. Alternatively, a rental apartment is an affordable way to visit Budapest with the whole family or a group of friends.

Must-See Sights in Budapest

You will need to pick your sightseeing carefully as there are so many different attractions to choose from in Budapest. There are numerous museums which house exhibits from different historical eras. The city’s art galleries have a variety of artistic styles and are well worth browsing if you are looking for something unique for your home. The city has a host of historic Turkish baths that are reminiscent of the Turkish occupation. Budapest has many unique sites, including the Inner City Parish Church which has a Mihrab, a praying niche in the southeastern wall of the church which looks out towards Mecca. It was the only Christian Church tolerated by the Turks during their oppressive rule of the city. The National Gallery has an impressively large painting depicting Charles of Lorraine entering the city gates after defeating the Turks. The National Museum of Hungary has some interesting exhibits relating to the history of Hungary dating back more than 1,000 years. Some more recent exhibits relating to the 20th century have raised some controversy but are nevertheless well worth seeing.
