About Allie

I am a Hungarian-Canadian - we purchased this flat so that our family has a home-base when we visit Budapest a few times each year. As this is our home away from home, you will find that the apartment is equipped to a much higher standard than vacation rentals.

Allie purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Allie chose Budapest

The apartment is ideally situated downtown, a short walk to all the main attractions and amenities, and features underground parking (subject to availability). We purchased the flat newly-built to a very high standard, giving us the peace of mind that we will not be spending our visits dealing with 'old building problems'.

What makes this apartment unique

Taking a short stroll to the Central Market, built by Eiffel, to pick up the finest ingredients for an amazing dinner, or visiting one of the many popular pubs and restaurants on Raday street nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying at your apartment and we also thank for the lovely sparkling. Barbi was very nice too. What a fantastic location, all of my friends and family who visited us simply loved it!!! You couldn`t ask for a better location!!

We will definitely come back and happily recommend it to other people.

Good Choice

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. It has many convenient amenities and is in a great location. The subway, restaurants, shops and a huge market are just a few steps away. Communication with Allie was perfect. He always answered questions and gave good advice about the do's and don'ts in Budapest. In addition, Barbie was waiting for us when we arrived and showed us how everything worked. The drivers who picked us up/dropped us off at the train station and the airport were punctual and pleasant.

The only reason why I am giving this apartment four stars is because the air conditioner in our room was out of order and no solution was offered. It got warm in the room a few times. Hopefully, this problem is solved. Despite this issue, I would definitely stay here again. We had a great time in Budapest and this apartment had a lot to do with it!

Very nice stay in Budapest

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Budapest. The appartment is great. It is perfectly lokated nearby the liberty bridge and the Vacy ucta (the shopping location in Budapest). The Raday Street with a lot of restaurants is just a few minutes to go (there is also a supermarket). The appartment looks great, is clean, has very nice owners and is well managed by Barbi. She waited for us already in front of the appartment. When you travel by car you will get a secured garage. We can recommend the flat to everybody who'd like to travel to Budapest. The city is great and has a lot of very nice places to photograph. We will return for sure when we travel to Budapest again.

We just returned from Budapest where we stayed for 5 nights in this beautiful apartment.

We could move in permanently there, Allie! The apartment has been renovated with great taste and to North American standards and does not feel like a rental but more like a secondary residence in Budapest. Great kitchen, loved the LED lights. The full bathroom has a very large walk in shower with a nice Grohe shower head. I liked the fact that everything worked perfectly and the space was so clean,bright, airy and well decorated with some antiques and beautiful modern floors and tiles.The location is perfect for walking the city, going to the Market nearby and the Gellert Baths down the street and across the bridge. We could have easily taken the subway or the tram but chose to walk. We took advantage of the transit boats, though, to travel north to Margaret Island. The boats depart from the other side of the bridge and are Northbound or Southbound. It was very easy arranging the rental of this apartment with Allie. Barbie , the manager,met us upon our arrival, standing in the rain in front of the building, to greet us! Allie and Barbie also arranged the taxi ride from and to the airport which was very convenient. Barbie was easily reachable from our cell phone as we had to contact her before our arrival to report our flight delay; Everything has been thought of to facilitate your stay: guide books, transit maps, umbrellas, shopping bags, plenty of paper napkins, toilet paper, dishwasher and washing machine detergent, etc...and a bottle of good Hungarian wine.

Allie provided us with a list of things to do and restaurants to try through an e-mail before our arrival. She is a very well organized and thoughtful owner. This is our 7th rental in Europe through VRBO and so far this has been the best experience! We took a few of the FreeTours Budapest and they were excellent. The Gellert Baths were a very relaxing experience. Pack a pair of flip-flops and a swimming cap if you plan to go. We ate at some of the restaurants on Raday Street around the corner and liked Soul Café. Try the Risotto with duck. we climbed to the Liberation Statue on the Buda side up from the Gellert Hotel and got amazing views of the city from there. We would definitely rent this apartment again on another trip to Budapest as 5 days barely scratched the surface of this city.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Catherine! The apartment is in fact our second residence - we use it a few weeks each year. It was never equipped to a "rental standard" - it is equipped to the same standard that we would have in our own home. We believe that if you provide guests a high end experience, and take the time to properly maintain everything, guests will go the extra mile to take better care of your things -- after doing this for almost 10 years, we have never been disappointed - all our guests have been wonderful. We had rented many apartments before, and always thought that with a little extra effort we could really deliver excellence, after all, our guests are entrusting us with the few precious vacation days that they have. Thanks so much for noticing the little details, we welcome you back any time!

fab apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at your lovely apartment. Barbi met us on arrival and showed us around giving us helpful tips about the surrounding area. The apartment was spotless and very well equipped. The location was great. The grand market was at the end of the street and there were lots of great restaurants round the corner. Also super take away pizza across the street which was so cheap. We walked to most of the sights with ease. We enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony and also a glass of wine later after a long day seeing the sights. Budapest is an amazing city with so much to see and do. has the most chilled vibe of all the capital cities we have ever visited.

Allie was great to deal with. Answered all our questions very promptly and gave us lots of info prior to arrival. Barbi arranged our early morning taxi back to the airport too. We would love to return to Budapest and wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment again.

Huge Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Budapest, and the apartment was perfect for our needs. Allie confirmed all of our arrival and departure details to ensure everything went smoothly, including arranging a taxi from the airport. The location was ideal, and was so close to where we boarded our River Cruise ship, we walked the couple blocks with our luggage. Allie provided some very valuable tips for shopping, restaurants, markets and sight seeing. Barbi was waiting for us when we arrived and provided more local information as well as details of the apartment. We have stayed in several apartments in Europe, and were pleasantly surprised by the size of this well equipped property in the central downtown area. It was very spacious, and had everything we needed including a clothes washing machine. We spent considerable time on the balcony, enjoying a drink or a meal overlooking the quiet courtyard. We walked everywhere, so the central location of the apartment was great for getting to many historical sites, and many different shopping and dining areas. We loved Budapest, and hope to return some day. We just hope that the apartment is still available for our next visit. Thanks Allie & Barbi.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this apartment. The location is close to restaurants and public transport and to the market hall which was a bonus for us. It has recently been renovated and it felt like a home away from home. It was very clean and well stocked. Many a time we enjoyed sitting out on one of the balconies with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Barbie was fabulous with meeting us and arranging a taxi for our early morning departure to the train station. We have stayed in many apartments in Europe and by far this is the best one, we cannot fault anything about it. Don’t look any further and book this wonderful apartment. Thank you Allie and Barbie and when we come back to Budapest we will definitely book your apartment again.
