Why Ian Pennington chose Vár
Hungary is a beautiful country and we find Budapest to be a fascinating city.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Castle District is busy during the daytime, mostly with people coming to visit this fascinating and historic area. However, in the early evening the tourists go home leaving the magic of the place to be enjoyed by the locals and those lucky enough to be staying there. The cultural life of the city is vibrant with many theatres, music venues, museums, etc. Budapest also hosts many festivals including an annual Jazz Festival and famous September Wine festival in the Castle gardens. There are many thermal baths in Budapest including the Art Deco Gellert Baths and the S.... Baths. The Hungarian Grand Prix and other sporting events are all held in the city.

Apartment in the Heart of Buda
We rented Ians’ apartment for 3 nights. It is located in the heart of Buda — Just across the street from Matthias Church and a short walk to the museums of. Buda Palace. It is a perfect location!
Peter manages the property and is the consummate in-city host. He arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the train station and also to take us to the train station when we left. Very much appreciated!
The apartment is perfect and is described perfectly in the listing. Everything was clean; kitchen items were more than adequate.
Peter owns a pastry/strudel shop at the entrance to the square! A grocery store is just steps away as is the post office and the tourist office is just across the street.
Even if you are planning on visiting Pest, I would recommend this apartment. Bus to Pest is just outside the door. Buy tickets at the post office.
Thank you Ian!! Thank you Peter!!
And if you would like some traditional Hungarian food in a superb setting with excellent wait staff, try Pierrot. Just a very short walk from the square — Fortuna utca 14
Lovely Apartment in No1 Location
It was a very nice apartment in the most fantastic location. Could not recommend more.
Brilliant location, lovely apartment
Great location, within the heart of Buda and within walking distance to Pest. The apartment had everything you would want. A great place.
Just perfect - traditional style, beautifully decorated, spacious, all mod cons, great location
The apartment is just perfect - traditional style, beautifully decorated, spacious, all mod cons. Wonderful location - away from the heavy traffic you find on the Pest side; in a mainly pedestrian area.
Although the apartment was perfect, and communications with the owner and on the ground in Budapest were fine, I would hesitate to book anything through this website/service again as the 'Owners Direct' site controls the email communication throughout the transaction, and this method makes it difficult to get the information you need without the mobile 'app' they wish you to buy.
Perfect location on Castle Hill with incredible views in the heart of Buda's history.
Highly recommend this spacious apartment is true to historic architecture and perfectly located. Everything you need situated on the second floor over the grocery store that is complete with coffee shop and wine store. Views are breath taking with shops, cafes and sights to keep you overwhelmed during your stay. Peter arranged for a car from the airport and provided excellent advice to kick start our vacation. The only place I want to stay in Budapest.
The apartment is simply beautiful! With tall ceilings, huge windows overlooking the city, and a view of the church, it couldn't be a more lovely place to stay when visiting Budapest.
