About Allie

I am a Hungarian-Canadian - we purchased this flat so that our family has a home-base when we visit Budapest a few times each year. As this is our home away from home, you will find that the apartment is equipped to a much higher standard than vacation rentals.

Allie purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Allie chose Budapest

The apartment is ideally situated downtown, a short walk to all the main attractions and amenities, and features underground parking (subject to availability). We purchased the flat newly-built to a very high standard, giving us the peace of mind that we will not be spending our visits dealing with 'old building problems'.

What makes this apartment unique

Taking a short stroll to the Central Market, built by Eiffel, to pick up the finest ingredients for an amazing dinner, or visiting one of the many popular pubs and restaurants on Raday street nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying at your apartment and we also thank for the lovely sparkling. Barbi was very nice too. What a fantastic location, all of my friends and family who visited us simply loved it!!! You couldn`t ask for a better location!!



We will definitely come back and happily recommend it to other people.

Reviews

Beautiful and spacious place to stay in Budapest.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Nov 21, 2015

Our stay at this apartment in Budapest was perfect. Our host and property manager were friendly, accommodating and helpful from the beginning to the very end. The flat is beautifully furnished, spacious and in an excellent location - right between Raday Street and the very popular Central Market Hall. We had so many sites, restaurants and opportunities at our fingertips with this location. The two-bed, 1.5 bath home provided perfect accommodations for two, but is absolutely suited for four, complete with laundry facilities, extra closet space, a cute little balcony and a full kitchen. Budapest is a beautiful city with a fascinating history; this apartment is perfectly suited to explore such a unique European gem.

Perfect is the best word to summarize this place! The owners have thought of everything.

  • 5 of 5

Before we even arrived, we received a list of things to see and do in the city. The owners even arranged for us to be picked up at the airport, which I highly recommend. We were greeted by Christina who let us in and gave us an overview of the area as well as additional recommendations for restaurants and attractions. There was even a bottle of excellent Hungarian bottle of wine waiting for us. The apartment was spotless, the beds comfortable and the umbrellas sure came in handy when our travel umbrellas did not do the job. The location was perfect! Just a block away from the market, and the Danube. Would definitely stay here again if we ever have the pleasure of returning to Budapest. Was sad to leave, felt like our home away from home.

Wonderful spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

Convenient location, minutes from the Central Market where we bought fresh fruit and lots of delicious food for our breakfast. Many restaurants near by and easy walk to most top sites in the city. The apartment was spacious, very well maintained, comfortable beds. The check in was punctual and without a problem. Overall a terrific place!

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in the apartment for five days, and had a terrific experience. Raymond was very prompt in responding to all our emails prior to arrival and kindly arranged taxi transfers from the train station and to the airport. Christine greeted us outside the complex when we arrived and showed us the apartment, walked us through where the closest metros/ATMs/ supermarkets etc. were, which was super helpful.

As for the apartment itself, the kitchen is well stocked with plates/tea kettle/pans, etc.. The living area has enough room for a family of four to lounge around in quite comfortably . The wifi connection is fast enough to stream video with no issues. The bathrooms were clean and in great condition, with ample hot water. In terms of location, the apartment is only a few minutes from a wide range of restaurants on Raday St, as well as very close to the metro/tram stops.

Overall we had a wonderful time , in large part because of how convenient and well furnished the apartment was. We will almost certainly return in the near future. Thanks again to Allie and Ray for being such great hosts !
