CENTRAL INDEED: STEP OUTSIDE THE BUILDING AND THE BEAUTIFUL ST STEVEN BASILICA IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. Enjoy the peaceful morning while sipping on your espresso next door and watch as the city wakes up. No need to worry about beating the crowd when you are staying with us. We are located at one of the must see locations in downtown Budapest. The area is full of great restaurants, bars, cafés and the 'best in town' ice cream shop is just around the corner. There are 3 grocery stores (1 of them open 24/7), ATMs, currency exchange offices in 4 minutes walking distance.

The square is only open for pedestrians and the apartment is facing the inner courtyard, that makes our place very quiet and private. Metro, bus and trolley lines, underground garages are all within 5 minutes walking distances from our building. The Danube (ports of international river cruises), Chain Bridge, Parliament Building, Opera House, Shopping Street are also in 10 or less minutes walking. You could rent bikes on the square or hire a rickshaw to take you around.

Saint Steven Square is a perfect starting point for sight seeing. You look at Budapest's grand building, the Basilica, when you step outside. It is an appealing and fun location with many performances during the day and lively night scene after dark.

The apartment is on the 4th floor (Yes, Elevator) that allows light and air in. Free WiFi, cable TV included.

We will be happy to arrange your taxi reservations and provide you with many great info on Budapest to find fun destinations and recommend historical sights.

Hope to see you soon!

Quiet Hideaway by the Basilica
average rating of 4.903226 based on 31 reviews

Quiet comfortable and spacious with a quirky bedroom.

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location to explore Budapest. Judith was most helpful and generous with her time and gave us a good orientation and plenty of suggestions for our stay.

The apartment is exactly as described and when we had a very minor issue, Judith was promptly to hand with the solution. While we were a party of two the apartment would easily accommodate four.

The location is perfect for shops, transport links and restaurants but remarkably there was no noise from the street at night.

We found the city very easy to negotiate and every point of interest within easy walking distance. We did use the underground and while it is old it is easy to negotiate and safe.

If you chose to stay here, I don't believe you will be disappointed.

Safe travels.

Lovely apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay with relatives when we come to Budapest but decided to rent our own apartment instead this time. We were very pleased with our choice. Judit met my husband and I right on time at her spacious and comfortable apartment. We had everything we needed and the location was perfect. You can walk anywhere but metro stops are also close by as are restaurants and stores. The square is very touristy and bustles at night with the many patios and bars/restaurants. You can walk across the Chain Bridge and be in Buda in 20-30 minutes. The apartment was well equipped, the shower was great and the bed was comfortable. It was also very quiet and secure. Judit was good with her communication and was available for questions and was very nice and helpful. She also arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport at 4:00am for a flat rate with a very reliable driver named Janos. I recommend this apartment and would stay here again! Thank you Judit! Koszonom es viszontlatasra!

Centrally located yet quiet

  • 4 of 5

Really nice appartment and located in walking distance to shopping, restaurants, Basilica, Parliament and the river. Judit is a very kind and helpful host. Lots of space for 4 people. Small kitchen, but equipped and suitable for preparing small meals.

Great location. No temperature control.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in the best location - right on St. Steven's Square, but it wasn't noisy at all since it was in the back of the building. However, it was extremely hot (the average temperature in the city was in the high 90s), and had no air conditioning, just a couple of fans. The "bedroom" is just that - room for a bed and nothing else. You couldn't even walk around it. And no window. Still, I was pretty happy there, though sweaty at night.
