About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6 to 10 people

A CENTRAL 140 sqm APARTMENT with 4 ROOMS and parquet in a historic Budapest building near famous CAFÉ NEW YORK. Around the corner you find an old MARKET HALL and everything for your fridge. Even fresh cow and goat milk. The apartment combines good taste and LIFE STYLE on a very high comfort level.


We offer you a generous and spacious flat, a unique place that we created for ourself with an magical atmosphere you wont find in any hotel. Its a classic place with heigh ceilings and hard wooden floor, filled with hand picked furniture and original art work. Last century items mixed with modern style ad an extra to your stay. We carefully restored this place and safe its typical old Budapest atmosphere in it. So one can imagine the last century, but also surf with high speed in the internet.

The elevator brings you up to one of the last floor. The apartment got big windows and is filled with light. We added an original Italian Espresso Maker to it, to provide a perfect start for your day in Budapest as well as an sophisticated Sound System from Geneva so you can simply enjoy a unique living experience.




good communication we speak:



The place is well connected to all other city parts.

The neighbourhood around is full of life, an atmosphere that artists like Pablo Picasso or Cartier Bresson would have loved.

In front of the door you experience Old Europe at is best. So you don´t need to listen to a tourist guide who tells you about the great past and the extraordinary of that place. Its still there.

The historic market around the corner is unique and nowhere else in Europe you find places like this for such a price. Try the home made honey and apricot jam from the farmers who come in the morning together with a fresh white bred or the Hungarian Kifli. Also don´t forget the world famous Hungarian Salami. It goes best with yellow paprika, white bred and fresh butter.

The cheese stand on the right side is outstanding and provides you with home made products and fresh milk. Ask for the smoked cheese.

Bring one of the empty glass bottles from my kitchen and the nice woman (speaks English) will fill it up right in front of you with fresh cow or goat milk.

Opposite the cheese stand you find a place where they sell bred and yoghurt. The yoghurt is the best one I ever tasted in my life. They offer it with rasberries, strawberries, peaches and many other tastes.

Ask also for kefir and turorudi rools - its a chream cheese filled chocolate roll. This one will make your day.

The café Csiga on the corner of the market hall is a good place for a cheap breakfast or a good night beer. Its filled with intellectuals and artists. On the opposite side there is a Gulash restaurant - cheap and great to experience.

Four minutes walk away you can allready enter the famous New York coffeehouse, as big as half a soccer field. But there are other ones around the city who are great too and cheaper.

Just start to stroll throughout the streets and you will love it. To the river Duna you walk arround 6 to 8 minutes. Depends on your speed. In that direction you will find other nice little shops of the neighbourhood.

Dont forget to pack your bathing suits and the best after your arrival is to go to the Szechenyi Fürdo. You can take the tram to Octogon and then change to the second oldest subway in Europe the Földalatti in the direction to Mexico Ut. The station of the thermal bath has the same name like the bath. Its a 15 minutes trip or 6 minutes by taxi. After the first hour in the both bathes, try the Thai Massage for 30 Euro per hour. There are Thai masseuses from Wat Pho in Thailand. You dont get a Thai Massage anywhere else that cheap and good in Europe. Its almost like on the beach of Ko Samui and its very warm on the place they do it. So it feels totally right. After all that get a bottle mineral water out of the machine in the entrance hall. Even better the fresh Orange Juice from another machine, before you leave.

For dinner find out about the Menza Restaurant near Octogon at Liszt Ferenc tér 2. Two people can eat for 30 Euro with drinks. Its really high quality. For the evening its better to make a reservation.

for cheap taxi please call (phone number hidden) - its cheaper then the normal one and they speak english

tram in front of the house every 5 minutes

If you need pick up from the airport or train station, please let me know and I can send a driver.

Klasse Wohnung in Bester Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren hier mit 5 Freunden. Einfach nicht zu toppen. Wenige Minuten vom Jüdischen Viertel, gleich um die Ecke das Cafe Hauer mit dem besten Kuchen der Stadt und unschlagbaren Preisen. Und alles was man sonst so braucht direkt vor der Tür. Die Wohnung ist sehr groß und geräumig. Super Einrichtung nur vom Besten. Wir haben es sehr genossen. DANKE

stunning apartment right in the centre

  • 5 of 5

We came for a long weekend in October. It was just the perfect place for the six of us. The apartment is very big, high ceilings, wooden floor, something hard to find these days. We also fell in love with the Italian coffee maker and the comfortable beds. All in all this flat is outstanding for a small budget. Thanks for the tips ...

Wir haben einige Tage in Franks wundervoller Wohnung verbracht. Es ist einfach unbeschreiblich schön. Viel Platz, Parkettböden überall, super sauber, viel Licht, ausgewählte Lampen, bequeme Betten und voll im Zentrum. Konnten von hier mit unseren Freunden immer alles sofort erlaufen oder erfahren. Ganz Klasse und immer wieder gern. War einfach unbeschreiblich schön und sehr günstig für das was es ist. DANKE
