Overview

About the property

Feel the beating heart of Budapest in a highly romantic hidden patrician house…

Feel the beating heart of Budapest in a highly romantic hidden patrician house…Built in 1890, the estate is situated right at the core of Pest golden Triangle.

The location will give your stay a totally unique flavor: the Jewish quarter is behind (actually it officially begins this side of the street) with its old-charm shops, typical Hungarian delicious restaurants and 5 minutes away XIXth century Klauzai Ter market where you can buy your fresh groceries or mix with the locals at the foodstalls; the Szimpla bar, Kazinczy or Dob is the next street; Broadway (the theaters place) is up front – it’s a 2 minutes walk to join the Opera and Andrassy street, the Hungarian Champs-Elysées, with its luxury brands and impressive ancestral buildings. A few feet away on the left is first St Terez church (that you can see from the flat) then Litsz Ferenc square, a greenery pedestrian area where the world famous music academy is accoled to hype restaurants and gourmet terraces (plus, it’s pratical, the Budapest tourism agency). The 70 bus will conduct you swiftly to the city forest and the Szechenyi baths, an Art nouveau thermal heaven with an outside 38° winter swimming pool – a must to experiment absolutely since it’s an ingrained part of the Budapestan life... and a delight after a day of visits. Kiraly tram station (tram 4 and 6) on the korut (main avenue) is 5 minutes from the apartment and will take you basically everywhere in the city. Although, being that you are at the utmost center, you can do almost everything walking. On the right 10 minutes away you’ll find Deak Ter, a hub for the 3 city metro lines, Vaci utca the fashion street and a little farther the Danube. Go there at night, it’s magic.

Push the doors and discover… Pest well-kept stunning secrets, a Touch of Tuscany in this case… green and yellow. A world, unimaginable and not accessible from the streets, will unravel: the charm of patios and inner iron balconies, century-old sandstone majestuous stairs, airy arcads in the court. There is no elevator in this cosy building (3rd floor) but that may pose a problem only for the elderly and very heavy luggage traveler because the smooth-patina steps are very easy (and the grocery store is at the ground floor, opened 6h30-21h30 7/7, while the bakery is just across the street to ensure fresh bread and croissants for your breakfasts – isn’t it great ?). You’ll be able to see the roofs of Budapest, a lot of the city blue sky and the top of Basilica tallest golden coupole.

The apartment has been totally renovated in 2012 by the owner, a French home designer. Among the original details, typical of Pest classical apartments, remain the high ceilings (3m70), the century-old parquet and huge wooden doors. A whisper of old Hungary can also be found in the decoration. Everything else is for the lovers of luxury, comfort, intimacy and design.

Extremely sunny, non smoking, the flat offers one built-in Italian kitchen, a separate dressing room, a separate toilet, a bathroom and a big room; it can accommodate up to 4 persons. The best brands have been used, be it for the kitchen appliances (mostly Bosch except for the Gorenj oven and the induction cooking panel), the Kaldewei Conoduo bath and the mainly Italian topnotch contemporary fixtures of the flat. At your disposal, everything you will find at home: glassware, cookware, cutlery, napkins, toaster, coffer maker, electric kettle; fridge, oven, microwaves grill, induction cooking panel + extractor, dishwasher, washing and drying machine, hair-dryer, iron, iron board, aspirator and a safe for your convenience. There is a large Samsung LED TV with access to international channels, a free internet cable for your laptop and a free, fast ans flawless WIFI access. Towels, pillows, bed linens and spa amenities are furnished. Final cleaning is included. Andréa will warmly welcome you upon arrival to help you settle down with some information, services and city maps.

Treat yourselves and Enjoy the exclusive glass bathroom with its bathtube for couples and the Maurice Barilone Calisson bed with its unique soft shapes and explosive color (queen sized). A second bedding (140 cm) is provided by the Danish Innovation sofa (very comfortable). Contemporary art and XIXth century Burmese lacquerware mix to create a sense of purity, distinctiveness and intimacy for a perfect romantic getaway. Come here in the Royal street to get in touch with history, beauty, arts and folklore of the real Budapest life, all of that in a village and artsy atmosphere. We’ll await you with pleasure… for how many times you may wish. We’re sure you’ll come back. It’s addictive.

And if you wish to settle…, we’ll be there too.

NOUVEAU EN 2013:

Nichés dans l’une de ces très vieilles demeures patriciennes de la rue Royale (Kiraly), en haut d’une cour intérieure secrète et romantique, derrière la porte d’un appartement ultra-design et intime, VENEZ SENTIR BATTRE LE CŒUR DE BUDAPEST.

Chaud, vivant, amical, typique, suranné et moderne, infiniment charmeur… Vous vivrez la vie de Pest au gré de vos envies, à la hongroise, au rythme des âmes du lieu, dans leur contexte plutôt que dans un hôtel. Une autre découverte…

Vous êtes au centre du triangle d’or de Pest. La localisation donne une saveur unique à votre séjour : entourés de Pest l’ancienne et la multiforme, multiconfessionnelle, vous êtes adossés au quartier juif avec ses vieilles échoppes, ses petits restaurants kitsch de cuisine traditionnelle et le marché de Klauzai Ter – une halle XIXème de fer forgé; face à vous, l’Opéra et la rue Andrassy, les « Champs-Elysées » hongrois puis Broadway, le quartier des théâtres ; à quelques pas sur votre droite, la fameuse église Sainte Thérèse (que vous voyez depuis l’appartement) puis le square Litsz Ferencs, une respiration piétonne verte jonchée de sculptures de bronze et de terrasses de restaurants de cuisine contemporaine. L’office de tourisme y a une agence. La célèbre académie de musique Franz Liszt domine le tout. A quatre minutes de votre appartement, l’été, le soir, ou enluminé de guirlandes sous la neige, le lieu est enchanteur.

En face du parc, toujours sur Kiraly, le bus 70 vous conduit directement au bois de la ville et aux bains historiques de Szecheny, un paradis thermal Art nouveau avec une piscine extérieure de 38° en hiver… - A essayer. La station de tramway de Kiraly (tram 4 et 6), à 5 minutes sur l’avenue centrale, vous offre une formidable desserte sur la ville – jusqu’aux bains de Margitsziget - sachant que votre situation vous permet pratiquement de tout faire à pied sur Pest – le tram vous mènera sur l’autre rive (Buda). Sur la droite, à 10 minutes, Dek Ter, le noyau des trois lignes de métro de la ville ; Vaci ut, la rue de la mode et ses façades Art déco; et un peu plus loin, le Danube (magique, la nuit).

Le portail de Kiraly vous ouvre aux mystères les mieux gardés de Pest, ceux, cachés aux regards des non résidents, des cours intérieures (ici un air éclatant de Toscane), des balcons en fer forgé et des escaliers majestueux. Le cosy bâtiment (juste 20 appartements) date de 1890. L’absence d’ascenseur (3ème étage) ne pose souci qu’au voyageur handicapé ou extrêmement chargé car les marches basses, larges et patinées, sont très faciles ; et le magasin du rez-de-chaussée répond chaque jour à tous vos besoins de 6h30 à 21h30. Pour accompagner votre petit-déjeûner de pain frais ou de croissants, la boulangerie est en face et ouvre à 7h.

Votre appartement a été totalement rénové en 2012 par la propriétaire, une architecte décoratrice française qui a beaucoup travaillé en Asie, d’où ce cocon zen de 48 m² au milieu de la vieille Europe. Ont été conservés des structures d’origine, caractéristiques du style classique de Pest, les hauts plafonds (3m70), le parquet centenaire et les grandes portes en bois. Un souffle de l’histoire de la Hongrie se retrouve çà et là dans quelques éléments du décor. Tout le reste a été pensé pour les amoureux du luxe et du confort.

Baigné de soleil, non-fumeur, l’appartement accueille jusqu’à 4 personnes. Il comporte une cuisine italienne sur-mesure équipée Bosch et Gorenj, un dressing séparé, des toilettes séparées, une salle de bains dotée de la baignoire en céramique Conoduo de Kaldewei et un espace à vivre de 30 m². Les autres éléments - sanitaires, mobiliers… - sont de design contemporain, principalement italien.

Vous vous y trouverez comme chez vous : vaisselle, verres, couverts, poëles, plats à micro-ondes, serviettes etc…

A votre disposition : réfrigérateur, four, micro-ondes grill, plaque à induction et hotte, lave-vaisselle, machine lavante séchante pour le linge, grille-pain, presse-agrumes, cafetière, bouilloire, sèche-cheveux, fer à repasser, planche à repasser, aspirateur, ainsi qu’un coffre-fort destiné à vos biens les plus précieux.

Pour vos loisirs : une TV Samsung LED de 70 cm avec accès aux chaînes internationales

un accès internet par câble gratuit pour votre ordinateur portable (possibilité d’en

louer un sur place pour votre séjour moyennant 5 euros)

Pour votre bien-être : oreillers, garnitures de lit, serviettes de bain et produits spa

Andréa vous accueille chaleureusement à l’arrivée avec toutes les informations nécessaires, plan de ville et services, pour aider en douceur à votre installation.

Offrez-vous une pause pour le plaisir des yeux et des sens dans la salle de bains aux parois de verre avec sa baignoire pour couple ou paressez dans le lit Calisson de Maurice Barilone (queen sized) avec ses formes arrondies et sa couleur explosive. Un deuxième couchage est apporté par le sofa Danish Innovation (très confortable). Venez toucher à la gaieté, aux arts, à la gastronomie et au folklore de la vraie vie de Budapest, dans son meilleur lieu et dans une atmosphère unique. Nous vous attendons avec un grand sourire… autant de fois que vous le souhaiterez..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Julies Apartment ist wirklich traumhaft schön. Wir wurden von eine Bekannten in Empfang genommen und uns wurde in Ruhe alles gezeigt. Auch die ausführlichen Emails mit Beschreibung und Erklärung zum Apartment und den umliegenden Restaurants war sehr hilfreich. Alles in Allem: Extrem Genial! Wenn wir wieder kommen, dann zu Julie! :) Und wir kommen 100%ig wieder!

GREAT APPARTMENT, GREAT STAY, CENTRAL BUDAPEST

  • 5 of 5

Turned up here just after midnight to a warm welcome from IDA. We found a fab wine bar next door open till 3 am for late arrivals!, 10 wines cost us about £20. The apartment was lovely and warm and had everything you could need on a city break...we loved it...it was spacious and clean, had a great bathroom and kitchen and was so very central. The bed was really spacious and comfy. Although this apartment is on Kiraly Street you would never know it, as the double glazing kept the party revellers noise over new yr completely out. We had a fab time, a fab new year and would totally recommend this apartment. For those with mobility problems do not book as there is no lift. We would stay again, thank you Julie for the chance to stay in your lovely apartment. We will be back.

Julie was a fantastic host and the cleaning lady, Ida, was also very nice and professional. The apartment had everything that we can possibly ask for; the location is very central and close to many key attractions. Definitely recommended!

Loved this Place

  • 5 of 5

We came late at night and weren't sure about the neighborhood or about carrying heavy bags up so many flights of stairs.

By the end of the very next day we came to love the location, the vibrancy, the closeness to everything. Kiraly is really one of the major hubs of activity.

Let me say that the property could not have been cleaner or more well appointed. Everything was modern, new and functioned perfectly. It was very spacious and tasteful.

We didn't get to meet Jullie, but she was extremely helpful on the phone and made herself available to answer any questions should we call.

Music wise we did everything from Opera, a symphony at the Liszt Academy of Music, to a Rock and Roll down the street. All a very short distance from the apartment.

There is a fine bakery across the street and many fine restaurants. We liked Spinoza's, in spite of the American/English music, the cuisine in pure Hungarian. I grew up with a Hungarian Grandmother who was a wonderful cook and baker.

We would both highly recommend this apartment. We even came to view the stairs fondly.

Five stars, no hesitation.
