Great apartment at an AWESOME, FANTASTIC location. The apartment is centrally located in the 6th District in Pest surrounded by high end exclusive shopping area, theatres, restaurants, pubs, restaurants, clubs on the 3rd floor of a historical building. THIS IS THE BEST LOCATION in Pest, there are many many city center aprtmts, BUT the 6th district is the best!! So stay with us and you will have a wonderful time!

Recently renovated, the apartment is fully equipped including washing machine in the bathroom, dishwasher in the kitchen, free superfast wifi + AIR CONDITIONER (must in a summer which most aprtmts do not have in BP). Modern furnishings, flat LCD tv. The apartment overlooks the courtyard, therefore it's extremely quiet. You will have lots of lights as the apartment also has skylights. The apartment is situated at the heart of Budapest, in the central district on a very quite street, yet you are within 1 minute of all the action Budapest has to offer.

It's only 1 minute from the famous Opera House, and Andrassy Street. It is also very close to boutiques, shops on the Vaci street. There is a supermarket on the corner of our street. Bus, metro, streetcars, trams are all within 1 minute walking distance. Restaurants, bars are only 2 minutes walking distance. Thousands of things to do, restaurants, surrounded by upscale shopping, cultural life, and rich history, steps to all theatres, and nightlife. Located in a very safe neighborhood.

I will also send you recommendations, what to do, see, where to eat, the great restaurants around us, so you will not fall for the 'tourist traps'.

We have many additional photos of our beautiful home, please inquire and we will forward you the pictures that will showcase our fabulous home.


The apartment is centrally located and is very close to ALL attractions Budapest has to offer. Several museums, restaurants, bars are within walking distance. Supermarkets, malls (Western City Centre) by the Train station are conveniently located. Margit Island is 3 stations away on the streetcar. On the island you will find great communal pools, and other sporting facilities. For kids zoo, amusement parks, circus are all conveniently located.

About The Owner

Lived and worked in Pest for a long time. My brother and I purchased this apartment and we loved living here. But I got a great career opportunity and moved to New York a few years ago. My brother still lives in Hungary, and he manages the place. He also moved due to his growing family but we kept this small apartment due to mostly sentimental reasons. We only have this 1 apartment that we rent out, therefore you are gonna be hosted by owners, we don't deal with any real agents. Great location, great neighborhood, great people around the area.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2002

Why The Owner chose Terézváros

This apartment was our primary home until a few years ago. My brother and I loved this apartment but he decided to move into a bigger apartment and I have moved to US.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located in the middle of Pest, so you're close to all the action, yet it's extremely quiet, because it's facing the courtyard, as opposed to the street, although the street is nice and quiet. Also, it is located on the top floor of a historic building, and it has unique ceiling windows, in addition to the regular windows, as such the apartment is very sunny, it gets a lot of light. All my guests and we love this unique feature.

Spacious, pleasant apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

The good: Excellent location, comfortable with A/C, plenty of space and full kitchen, generally in excellent condition. Owner responds quickly to email and accommodated early check-in request.

Less good: light in one bedroom does not work. Shower head has too large holes for the water flow.

Note: 91 steps up the apartment and there is no elevator.

Had a great stay, thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay and review. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us and had a good time in Budapest. I have this one apartment only -don't deal with agents,- you get a 24/7 attention from me. I'd like to address some of the comments. In the advertisement we note and disclose this that the apartment is located in a building with no elevator and that this is a 3rd floor apartment. In the city center of Budapest there are many older -prewar buildings, but very few now with the unique roundaround staircase this building still has. The staircase we have in this building is historical , it has a monument status which is protected by Budapest City. No elevator will be put in this building because the City does not allow to destroy the roundaround circle of the architectural design of the staircase but putting an elevator in the middle of it. Guests at my place can experience real Budapest and a real architectural building with deep history. The staircase is very wide, with very low steps. If the lack of elevator is an issue which is totally understandable, please don't book this apartment as this will not be suitable. Water pressure in the bathroom is a bit low, which has nothing to do with showerhead (we tried many different kinds). It is due to the fact that again the building is older, the pipes are not as wide as in the newer buildings, and the apartment is on the top floor. Having said that, the shower is fully functional, bathtub works. Light in the bedroom: The apartment is extremely sunny, has skylights, windows, 5-6 lights in the living room/kitchen area. The bedrooms are small, each have either a skylight or a window. One of the bedroom had an electrical outlet problem while this guest was there, so there was no light there until we fixed it. But now it works. Please ask questions before booking, if the lack of elevator is an issue , this place is not suitable for you. My prices are very competitive and actually low for this location/apartment with all amenities (VIth district, literally steps to anything) to compensate for the lack of elevator. The apartment itself is very quiet, modern, renovated, with A/C. I thank you for your review again. Timea Igo- owner

Great location to explore city

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is perfectly located - close to the Opera, metro station, other transit, lots of restaurants and a superb wine bar at the end of the street. The apartment is comfortable although the bedrooms are a bit cozy and without a window. Pre-arrival communication was excellent and when we lost the key - they came to our rescue quickly. Thank you!

My only comment is that the kitchen dishes/pots needed a cleaning. The unit is on the 4th floor without an elevator so if stairs are a problem, this might not work. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Well situated and close to public transportation.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was located next to the opera house on the 4th floor. No elevator. Evreything was as shown in the description. No major surprises and the location allowed us to walk everywhere in Budapest. Only problem was with the key to the apartment. We were given only one set on arrival and unfortunatly the key to the apartment was not a perfect replica and it took as long as 5 minutes to get it to open the door. I would recommend that the owner provide 2 sets and should ensure that the key works properly. Other than this I would have recommended 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We provide more sets of keys only upon request. For a party of 2 (which is in this case we usally provide one set). The prior guest lost all sets of keys we provided, hence we had to replicate some quickly. We could have happily looked into the problems noted with that particular key, however have not been aware of it, as the guest did not notify us during his stay that he has difficulties opening the door. We are available, respond right away, please notify us of any issues, so we can look into it and rectify it. We want to ensure your stay is pleasant. This is an older building, the lack of elevator is disclosed in the listing. My prices are significantly lower than comparable places in this great neighborhood to compensate for this inconvenience.

Very nice location, on a quiet street and well furnished. Convenient!! Enjoyed our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a block behind the opera on a quiet street. Very convenient to metro, tram, shops, bakeries and restaurants. And a couple of blocks from the very happening Gozsdu area.

The apartment is spacious and well furnished and well equipped. There is an airconditioner which is huge in Budapest summers. The bedrooms are small but manageable for two adults and two children. Wish there was a pedestal fan to direct air into the bedrooms.

The owner and property manager are very nice people and very friendly. They were always ready to help and share a lot of info.
