What makes this Apartment unique
Dear Reader My name is Janos and I will be your host . I like to offer a great option to see and learn Budapest daily life and see the sights . I was born in 1975 and almost lived my all life in Budapest also I became a daily biker 20 years ago which means know every small secret corners where artist or students get together for a coffee , wine or limonade . I would like to write just shortly about my city or village tours which can be by bike or walk / public transport combination as you choose . The city tour can be half day or full day . I never learned to guide but love my city and I was always curious about history and people and I always ask about people life so if you like to see this city through a local person eye , that is me . Every tour I do I share my life and a small part of my soul so I happy to wait the right small group of travellers . Keywords what you can see and hear on a city tour : sights like Parliament , walk on Chain bridge , walk around Royal Palace , Mathias church , Fishermen bastion , than Saint Stephen Basilica , Opera , Synagogue , Great Market hall , Heroes square . Whate else : have a drink at Simpla garden ruin pub and if there is live music listen a little bit than discuss which thermal bath the best and what you should do there to follow the local tradition , book a table in our favorite restaurant where is live music every evening and not touristy and reasonable prices (a maincourse 10 euros ) . And my stories (local people life , communism and so on )what I learned from people and my family ... The village tour to Szentendre the art village can be by bike or boat or train or these combination . This is a romantic village in Hungary with art , cafes , 300 yo houses .

Extraordinary Hosts and exceptional apartment
Janos is an incredible host! I have stayed in many Airbnb and VRBO in the US and Europe and he is the most genuine and kind host I have met. He is genuinely interested in helping you find a great experience in the community he loves with personal recommendations about things to do and see. The apartment is beautiful with warm and thoughtful decorating and many small lovely touches to make it feel like home. Located in a great neighborhood a short walk (10-15 minutes) from all the sites you want to visit.
This is the highest recommendation I have ever given. Our family of 5 hopes to return to our Budapest “home” in the future!
Jane , Marty and All of You , thank you your kind words . To read it was a really good feeling , you gave the best gift to say us your positive feelings about staying .
As we talked at departure there are still more things to see and do and when you will be in the city again would be great to show Szentendre on bike …
Our door will open when ever you like to visit us , you are so friendly , kind family and not the last that people who recognize small details and can be happy for those .
Stay in touch , greetings from Budapest
Janos and Jozsef
Great Location and very comfortable
This was a great place to stay to explore Budapest. We were able to walk to all the main attractions. The apartment was comfortable and we had everything that we needed. Janos was a great host and made sure that we were taken care of. He gave great suggestions on where to eat and places to see and was very helpful getting us to the train station. Thanks so much!!!
Location great/owners extremely helpful
Pros: location great; owners extremely helpful; large and spacious apartment; apartment well stocked; beds comfortable; do not be worried when you see the outside of the building, the inside will please you, I’m sure. Do not buy the Budapest city card. This place is within walking distance of most everything. We took a bus and tram twice.
Cons: could not control the heat and found it hot to sleep; owners were very insistent on us being quiet for the neighbours but the above neighbours were extremely noisy; owners told us cleaning was included in the rent we paid but then said if the kitchen wasn’t clean we would be charged. I did not understand this. However, I just cleaned as I usually do and they did not charge me. Bedding would not cover two people in one bed, only one person comfortably. They call it a three bedroom, but it is a two bedroom with a daybed in the living room. Towels have seen better days. They say two floors up but be prepared to walk four because it’s two flights per floor.
Thank you for your detailed review , but in the cons , some informations is misleading for the future guests .
As , our guests are different some people use the kitchen but some not , but we always provide for spotless clean . This is important !!
As , to your request was to make separately setting the bedrooms , naturally we set single bedding cover for both of you .
Sometimes , we accommodate 5 /6 peole , therefore the living room is perfect for the extra 2 people also , as can be separately close the doors , but there is a openable sofa bed and a sitting sofa , so as you can see on the photos your information absolute wrong . We provided 4 towels / each of you , and one is not the best quality , as we mentioned you can use it if you visit the bath , in this case you do not have to rent , this is just a kindly help from our part to save your time and money .
Finally our suite in the second floor , but because the ceilings is more then 3 meters ( traditional ) the stairs are higher , simple reason :))
But if our guests luggage heavy not a question to help from our part , as we welcome our all guests personally . Janos and Joseph
Lovely clean apartment
Loads of space for two couples. Everything you need to cook with a full hob and oven. We ate out because there was a fantastic variety of restaurants at very reasonable prices. Situated in a great area within walking distance of lots of places of interest. The wine bar on the corner is lovely. Janos and József met us at the apartment and gave us loads of information. Their tip for purchasing a weekly transport pass (about £12/13) was the best. We travelled like the locals, buses, trams and metro unfortunately the boat service was suspended due to low water levels. No need to validate this pass but carry your passport. Would I recommend this apartment - Definitely. A lot of building work going on but it didn’t bother us. If you’re sensitive to noise pack some ear plugs. We would stay here again
A lovely homely apartment in a great location
This was our first time visiting Budapest and the apartment was in a great location close to the centre, tourist attractions and great places to eat. Janos, our host was extremely helpful and spent time with us recommending places to visit and places to eat and drink. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Budapest
Lovely Hungarian apartment
This apartment is in a lively and interesting neighbourhood, with good public transport links. There are two super bathrooms and everything is very clean. There is a lovely Hungarian feel to this very comfortable apartment. You could not hope for more knowledgeable and helpful hosts.
