Beautiful Apartment. Excellent Location. Felt Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous apartment was such a great choice for my family. First off, it is centrally located just steps away from the square in front of St. Stephens Basilica, The Chain Bridge, Andrassy Avenue, shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, and transportation. If you are looking for the perfect centrally located place when visiting Budapest, this is it.

The apartment is beautiful, clean, cozy, and tastefully decorated. It has historic charm in some elements of the architecture, mixed with modern, updated conveniences, as shown in the pictures of the apartment. Not shown in the pictures is the gorgeous historic courtyard of the building right outside the apartment door! Too beautiful for words! There was definitely enough space for my family of four, with two grown children, to spread out and have enough space to relax without feeling like we were crowding each other. There is so much storage in this apartment that we were able to unpack our things, and also have room to store our luggage out of sight. Having two updated and clean bathrooms was a huge bonus, and the modern kitchen with all its conveniences made this rental experience feel like we were at home. Also, having a washer and dryer in the apartment was a fantastic bonus.

Lastly, the owners of this apartment made this rental experience so comfortable for us. They are quick to respond to your questions, and they made all of the steps of the rental process very easy, from the initial rental request, to the arrival and departure details, and for all of the questions in between. They are very good at all aspects of communication during the rental process.

We will definitely be back to Budapest, and we will definitely request to rent this apartment again. It felt like our home away from home. We miss it already!

Flat in a great location to everything

  • 4 of 5

We completely enjoyed staying in this flat, in was close to everything. The ice cream parlor that makes rose shaped ice cream, the strudel house, and everything we wanted to do we were able to walk to, the restaurant on the street below were first class. The flat was clean, and very nice, and comfortable. Beds were comfortable too. There are more steps than you except, but manageable.

There's a little market just around the corner, very convenient. Metro station at the end of the street was very good too.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location, very clean with all the modern conveniences. Stairs up were only mildly annoying - and were undoubtedly good for us after all the delicious gelato on the corner.
