The apartment is in a beautiful old building, and backs onto a garden, so is very quiet. It has been completely redone, has a great bathroom (with a washing machine) and a brand new kitchen. The owner could not have been more helpful - she walked us through the neighborhood, and showed us where and how to use Budapest's excellent public transportation system, where the local grocery and restaurants are, and answered any questions we had about visiting Budapest. The apartment is in Buda, but is only one subway stop away from Pest, so I thought the location was excellent. I would highly recommend this apartment, and will stay there again if I'm lucky enough to return to Budapest.
