About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This squeaky clean apartment is legally registered with local authorities under registration #25-II/18/2005 and received the 'apartmant de luxe' status by exceeding the requirements for such rating. For your own protection, always make sure that the apartment you rent for your vacation is legally registered for such purpose!

The completely renovated (rebuilt), Western standard apartment is situated in the downtown 'Palota Negyed' or Palace Quarter in the 'heart of Budapest' as the Budapest Sun calls the part of this lovely district.

(Muzeum korut's East side, 'Rakoczi ut' South side, Jozsef korut's West side, Ulloi ut's North side provide the four borders of Palota Negyed. Here you will find the Italian Culture Center, the Hungarian Radio, the old National Museum, lovely 'walk only' streets, synagogues and churches, restaurants and pubs.)

The apartment itself is on the fourth floor (with elevator access) of a traditional, brick 19th. Century apartment building on Jozsef krt, facing the courtyard. Peaceful, quite, meticulously clean and very practical are the words that best describes this lovely apartment.

Less than a block away from the subway, streetcars and buses, walking distance to museums, to the famed and newly reopened New York Cafe (Boscolo's new Hotel New York), Hauer Cafe, Museum of Applied Arts (the famous art deco exhibition), Great Synagogue and more, the apartment is ideally located.

If you feel like shoping, there is the newly reopened classical Hungarian department store, Skala-Corvin, and a Farmer's market just a block away, as well as smaller department stores.

The bedroom contains a large double bed, nighttables, and a closet. The bathroom is set with glass mosaic tiles, wall hang toilet, and tiled shower. The living room contains a sofabed, television, dvd player, and there is a dining room table with chairs and an open concept kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, caffe maker, plates, dishes and cutlery. Your apartment contains a small built-in safe for your convenience.

We provide linens, towels and other necessities. The apartment has its private heating system, air-conditioner and its own washer and dryer. Your local host lives in the building, and if there is anything you may need you should not hesitate to contact your hosts, as they would be more than happy to arrange taxis, make reservations to restaurants and cultural events.

- Wireless, high speed Internet line access.

- If you prefer daily cleaning, it could be arranged for a nominal fee.

- For parking we use two close by, monitored garages for a nominal fee.

Our rates are very competitive and additional discounts may apply depending on the length of your stay. Please, do not hesitate to inquire about our specials.

'..The apartment was perfect, thanks to you.'

Hamida & Sébastien - France - January 29

'We choose your apartment because the apartment we rent usually was not available. Yours is interesting, quiet, in the middle of the city, wand the washing machine is a great idea. If you want to sell it someday, please let me know. We could be interested.' Andre - UK

'We just arrived home in Canada and want to thank you for your help in making our trip to Budapest just super. Your apartment was well equipped with everything we needed. It was extremely clean and comfortable and the location was easy walking distance to just about everywhere. Your help and tips in advance of the trip made everything smooth and Georgy's hospitality while there made us feel completely relaxed.' Rosanne and Dan - Ottawa, Canada

' We had an amazing time in Budapest staying in a terrific apartment centrally located on the Pest side of Budapest. It was quiet, centrally located and terrifically fitted out with everything one could want - a home away from home and having a washing machine and dryer was absolutely wonderful. Supermarkets, ATM machines and public transport were at your doorstep and we would recommend this apartment to the most discerning traveller. ' A&JB from Melbourne, Australia

About The Owner

This is me, Eva with my two girls and with my adorable husband, who was a good sport, when I said 'I thought we should buy an apartment in Budapest.' Although he has said 'I know I cannot win, I will either have to listen to you telling me what a great opportunity we passed on, or I have to listen to you telling me what a great idea this was...'

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Why The Owner chose Budapest

I grew up in Budapest. For that matter I grew up in this apartment building, built in the beginning of the last Century. I left Hungary a long time ago but I never gave up visiting my parent, my sister and other family members, and certainly did not give up on introducing Hungary to my kids. I kept flying back almost every year, and when this apartment right next door to my parents came up for sale I grabbed the opportunity to 'own a piece' of the 'Old Country'. I love to take my kids to Budapest, and I would never choose an other location than this apartment. It is safe, quite, and close to everything without the hassle of the tourist traps, the noise and lack of transportation. Not at last this property is legal. It has been registered with the local authorities, so rest assured, we are paying taxes, and you are contributing to the local economy (as cheesy as it sounds.)

What makes this apartment unique

Contrary to any advertising you will read, Budapest does not have a Downtown. It does have a tourist center with all the expensive stores, restaurants, and entertainment but the major attractions are scattered around the city, so if you are not keen to stay where all the tourists are staying, this is the place for you. The subway, streetcar, busses are two minutes away, and you can reach downtown by transportation or by walking. For that matter some of the museums, cafes, farmer market, and other attractions are closer or as easy to reach from here than from many of the properties that you can rent for more. The apartment is 2 blocks away from the New York Cafe (Bosco), 2 streetcar stops (or a short walk) from the Museum of Applied Arts, same distance to the Large Synagogue, the farmer's market is almost just across the street, fantastic restaurants, like Fulemule, just around the corner.....

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely little apartment

  • 4 of 5

Me and my girlfriend stayed over new year (little bit late to write this review !) and the apartment was perfect for what we needed. The apartment is in a traditional quiet building close enough to bars and restaurants, but not directly so its quiet and little walk which helps understand wider budapest, yet still on the transport links. The apartment has good central heating and air con for when its hot, the shower is power enough and kitchen has everything you need.

Host was great and easily contactable and family living in the building are at hand should anything go wrong (like when left the key in the back of the door when we left one evening !)

I can strongly recommend this place we had a lovely time !

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are back from a 3 weeks vacation at this beautiful city and very comfortable and equipped apartment.

Very well located,secure and quiet.

To have Georgy and Irene on the same floor was very reassuring and useful for all the directions and guidance to navigate the city.

We travel a lot since our retirement and stayed in many apartments , but this was one of our favorites places.

Thank you again Eva, Georgy and Irene and we would like to welcome you in NewYork soon.

Our return to Budapest

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this charming and modern apartment for 2-1/2 months. Everything about it was perfect and suited our needs. The hosts next door were super and ready to help in any way. The location is ideal for easy access to the Vilamos, Metro and the Bus to get to the heart of the city. The building was very secure and kept very clean in the hallways. Cleaning service for the apartment was excellent. Having a phone for local calls and WiFi was great. All our needs were met in every way. We had a very hot couple of weeks and the air conditioning was an added bonus. Anyone would love their stay here!

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

We are sorry for this very late review after staying in the apartment for 5 days in Sept. 2012. We had a wonderful stay. Everything about the experience was positive. The apartment is exactly as advertised and we found it perfect for a couple. We loved the farmers market and the convenient location to all types of shopping and sightseeing. It's also convenient for getting to and jogging along the river or in several parks. We ate at several of the restaurants nearby that Eva suggested and we loved all of them because they were not places where most tourists would go. We took the nearby metro most of the time and it was extremely easy to find our way around because of the good maps provided in the apartment. We had a couple of minor problems in the apartment which were quickly sorted out by Eva's lovely English speaking father. He was most accommodating in terms of filling us in on all sorts of information about Budapest. He met us on arrival and arranged for a taxi for us upon on departure. We enjoyed watching TV, using the washing machine, cooking, etc. The apartment is very clean and has everything you need for a short or long stay. The only suggestion we'd make is to buy new towels for the bathroom. We will definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity to visit Budapest. Thank you Eva and family!

Great Apartment, Excellent Location, Sweet Hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the apartment in August for seven nights. The apartment is walking distance to everything. We only took the metro once. We walked to Széchenyi (30mins) and Gellert (20mins) baths, Buda Castle, the farmer's market, Danube waterfront, etc, etc, etc. The apartment is nicely furnished and the laundry was great to have for our week long stay. The owner's parents are the hosts and so sweet and helped us arrange transportation to and from the airport. The owner, Eva, was very responsive and even provided suggestions for places to go in Budapest. I would stay at this apartment again and recommend it to anyone looking for good accommodation in Budapest.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Ashley. I am so thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. The weather was awfully hot for this time of the year, and I was worried that you may not feel up to getting around. The baths are wonderful to cool down in weather like this. Thank you so much for staying in the apartment and we all looking forward having you back!
