Property description

[please inquire about price and availability; because of the unique multiple configuration of this flat, we cannot make the calendar here work accurately and VRBO is incapable of calculating the rate accurately for all the different possible ways of configuring the apartment -- IMPORTANT: note that the price VRBO calculates is based on one guest, staying in the studio (no-bedroom; very comfortable sleep sofa in the living room) configuration]

A charming studio apartment for 1-2 guests, Apartment Pierre is an affordable yet amenity-laden alternative to more expensive 4- and 5-Star hotels. In the absolute center of the city, Pierre offers everything from free N'espresso coffee to high speed Internet to unlimited free international VOIP calling with a US incoming phone number. Renovated in 2011, the apartment is decorated with antiques and furnishings appropriate to the setting and its period. Overlooking a landmarked courtyard from the top (5th) floor, with elevator, washing machine, air conditioning, and a tiny but panoramic view (from the kitchen area) of the attics of Pest and the hills of Buda.

You will feel immediately at home when you stay in Pierre. Our attention to detail ranges from the custom-loomed towels made of organic Turkish cotton to the Mac Mini computer, flatpanel TV, dvd library, and assortment of guidebooks and fiction; from super-soft bamboo linens to welcoming wine from carefully selected vineyards.

The kitchen is stocked with staples, the bathroom with all the basics in case you've left anything home

Expandable options...
Pierre is a studio apartment (no bedroom), but an optional bedroom can be added; and it is adjacent to our Apartment SarahBelle (VRBO #124227) and can be inter-connected with that larger flat to create an apartment with up to three bedrooms and three baths.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • cleaning (1-2 guests)/wk $45.10
  • Taxes Not included

Notes:

We do not require a deposit but, like a hotel, do ask for credit card information to hold a booking. Payment is due in cash on arrival, but can also be made by bank transfer to our Euro account in Hungary or by credit card (for an additional processing and conversion fee of 8%) or by check in US $ (for an additional conversion and transfer fee of 5%). Other payment options may be possible, email us if there is one that works best for you.

Apartment is a studio with optional bedroom; prices quoted are for one guest in studio configuration.

Pricing is approximate, based on VRBO's calculations, which we can't control (for instance, there is no way to factor in the cost of the optional bedroom, or the cleaning fee for 3 or 4 guests). Check with us for a firm quote.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: John's father grew up in Budapest, and John grew up hearing about it, filtered through the oddly appealing love/hate lens of nazism and communism and Central European nostalgia. His father left in the mid-30s, and never went back until a 1975 week-long visit. But Hungary lived within him throughout his colorful career as a journalist, popular historian (author of the books that the films Patton and Tora, Tora, Tora were based on), propagandist and operative for Radio Free Europe. He died in 1980.

Why the Owner Chose Budapest, Inner City, Hungary:
Jeanne and John visited in 2001 with John's father's younger brother, spent a weekend and fell in love with it. We purchased and renovated these apartments for our own use (Belle and Sarah are our daughters, Max is our son; Olive and Andrei our grandchildren) and only rent them when we are not using them ourselves for friends and family (we have another apartment where we stay ourselves, not very far away).

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We are passionate about Budapest and want to share that enthusiasm with our guests. We would be happy to assist in any way we can to help you have a wonderful trip whether you stay with us or elsewhere. Unless you speak Hungarian, booking tickets to concerts or events can be daunting, and are best handled in advance because so much sells out so swiftly...we are happy to take care of this kind of thing, advise about the city, or book a reservation in a restaurant for the day you arrive (though you may be weary by then).
