About Bridgett Gill
Myself (Bridgett Gill) and my partner (Brendan Wheatley) are in our sixties and involved in the world of opera. We run Swansea City Opera, a mid scale opera company which tours all over the UK, and a registered charity. The history, culture and love of music of the Hungarian people were a great influencing factor in our decision to buy a classical apartment in Budapest. We were looking for an investment for our retirement and had planned to visit three countries before making our choice, but after seeing the beauty of Budapest and finding the Hungarian people so friendly and welcoming, we decided to look no further. We hope you love the city us much as we do!
Bridgett Gill purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Bridgett Gill chose Belváros - Lipótváros
Why we chose this location: Because we live in a very old cottage in Wales and love historic houses, we were looking for a building and apartment that had history and original features. We think we have found the perfect apartment and have completely renovated and restored it with a lot of love and thought. The rooms have beautiful oak floors and magnificent, high ceilings with period lights. Original pictures and limited edition prints decorate the walls. If you love architecture and history this apartment is a perfect choice.
What makes this Apartment unique
As well as being in a beautiful building, the apartment is close to all forms of public transport, and central to all the tourist attractions and the Opera House. There is a supermarket directly opposite the house and In addition, because we love good food and wine, we chose a location with good restaurants and cafes close by! By the way I can heartily recommend Hungarian wine, not a lot of it is sold abroad as they keep most of it for themselves!

Wonderful location Within walking distance to the parliament building. Clean and Spacious apartment
The owners are very responsive. They have contacts that can help you get to the apartment and back to the airport if you would like that service. We availed ourselves of the ride to the airport and the fare was reasonable but the conversation enroute to the airport was priceless. The apartment was clean and spacious. The building had old world charm but it also had updated bathrooms and kitchen. I would definitely recommend it to you friend.
The location was perfect. Close to attractions and restaurants. Need additional fans. Weather was very hot when we were there and the apartment has very little ventilation. Needs additional fans to be able to make it better.
Quiet residential property.
This apartment is excellent and it has everything you need for a comfortable stay.
The situation is perfect, in a central but quiet location with good restaurants and shops very near at hand.
The sights of Budapest are easily accessible either on foot or from two nearby metro stations.
A stop for the famous No 2 tram along the Danube is just a short walk away.
The owner can provide contact details for a friendly reliable taxi driver for airport transfers and other journeys.
He also acts as a quick guide to the apartment itself and helps to set you up for your holiday.
I'm looking forward to a return trip there.
The apartment was wonderfully located within a short walk to everything we wanted to do. Bridget was great to work with and Atilla was awesome picking us up and giving good advice for things to do. We highly recommend the apartment.
Wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay, we were lucky to find such a well situated apartment, so close to all the sites!
Central, quiet and well equipped
Great location and very quiet. Loved it all - except the living room chair and sofa were very uncomfortable and the TV didn't work. However the pros far outweighed the cons!
Great location and Apartment
Loved it all.
The apartment is in the perfect location, near the Basilica in the prestigious District 5. All the top tourist attractions are within an easy 10 min walking distance, including the Opera House, Parliament, National Art Museum, Castle District and the funicular railway, the Famous Chain Bridge and the Vaci Utca shopping street. It is also close to a supermarket and a covered market where you can by excellent fresh produce. It is also, very importantly, only 2 mins walk from some very good bars and restaurants; the Hungarians have some really excellent wine and food! The nearest metro station is 5 mins walk away, and bus and tram stops are 2 mins away. The apartment is also close to the street which houses all the prime antique shops specialising in Biedermeier and Art Deco furniture. Budapest is regaining its former glory, there is street after street of fabulous architecture, many buildings are fully renovated and many still have their rather shabby-chique charm.
