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.

First word to describe this apartment is location,location.It is fantastic.In walking distance(less then 5 minutes) to all amenities.Such as ;largest indoor market in Budapest,all public transit (tram,subway and bus lines) outdoor cafe's ( lots of places for ice-cream and cakes- a must for me lol) restaurants,grocery stores souvenir shopping..the list is endless.Now about the apartment,we were greeted with a very warm welcome by the hostess Christine.She gave us a tour of the apartment and provided us with lots of info about the area,etc.The apartment is beautiful and detail to design,to make one feel very comfortable/cozy and extremely clean.There are two lovely terraces to enjoy morning coffee /cocktail hour.We took advantage of this daily.Also wanted to mention the hostess arranged for taxi pickup/drop off from the airport,taxi driver was professional and very punctual.Great service.Budapest is a beautiful city and would highly recommend vacationing here and staying at this apartment is a must.

I wish I could give more than five stars! So beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is gorgeously decorated, incredibly comfortable and modern. Great support provided by our hosts, including arranging rides from the train station and to the airport for a very early flight out of Budapest.

We were provided with lots of information to help us find our way around Budapest.

The location is fantastic - many very good local restaurants located half a block away on Raday u. It is also close to the Central Market and the Kálvin tér Metro station. But it is also very quiet - I don't recall ever hearing any noise from outside the apartment.

My wife wants to return to Budapest just so she could stay here again! She loved the blinds and the patio doors and windows so much that she wants to replace our sliding glass door to the deck at our house with what they have at this home.

We highly recommend staying at this fantastic place with excellent hosts.

Thank you so much for welcoming us in your home!!

Excellent accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5


This apartment really was a home away from home, providing all the comforts advertised. It was private, spacious, fresh and utterly clean. It boasts an ample kitchen, two large bedrooms, a well-appointed, roomy lounge which opens out onto a small balcony and, most importantly, a good bathroom with a great shower. We couldn't fault its amenities. Everything worked! Furthermore, as part of an apartment block, we felt more a part of Budapest than mere visitors. It was centrally placed, close to a good corner shop as well as the Great Market Hall and but a block or so from the Danube. So many key sites were within walking distance and for those that weren't there was easy access by tram or bus. There's nothing quite like a good pad to return to after a day on the town and this apartment was it. We spent a cosy fortnight in it reassured, too, by ready access to its manager Christine. I can wholeheartedly recommend it.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is pristine, with everything you could possibly want to have a good holiday. Nice decor, and quality furniture and equipment.

It was great sitting out on the terrace, soaking up the sunshine!

Immaculate apartment

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment, where we stayed for 12 days, is superb: spotlessly clean, very comfortably furnished, endless hot water in the shower, comfortable beds, fully and thoughtfully equipped kitchen, washing machine, good supply of holiday-type novels to read and, to top it off, a superb location.

The apartment is a four-minute walk to the amazing Central Market Hall, where we were able to buy wonderfully fresh vegetables and fruit, as well as a variety of cheeses and meats. We visited in December while the market was charmingly decorated for Christmas. There’s a lovely restaurant on the second floor that serves traditional Hungarian food. A four-minute walk from the apartment takes you to a metro station, the tramway and buses. Five minutes walk from the apartment is the Liberty Bridge, providing an inspiring walk across the Danube, and three more minutes to the lovely Gellert Baths. And don’t miss Paprika Jancsi, a wonderful and inexpensive restaurant just around the corner on Raday Street. We recommend a visit to the State Opera House for the guided tour, Esterhazy torte and coffee at Callas next door, and of course as much time as possible in the thermal spas (especially the outdoor pools at Szechenyi).

But best of all are the owner of the apartment, Allie, and the property manager Barbi. Prior to our arrival, Allie sent us very useful recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants. Recommend you allow Barbi to arrange a taxi to drive you from the airport to the apartment—worked seamlessly. Barbi was at the apartment awaiting our arrival, and showed us where everything was kept and provided invaluable information about buses and the metro (welcome bottle of wine was delicious also). Mid-point in our stay, Barbi cleaned the apartment and returned it to its original immaculate condition. Thank you, Allie and Barbi, for your many contributions to a superb holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you Malcolm for taking the time to leave this thoughtful review for other travelers to see! This year we will be visiting Budapest at Christmas time to enjoy the thermal pools outdoor too, as well as the world famous Christmas markets. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back one day. Thanks again! Allie

Hope to return!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was wonderful. We enjoyed everything about this listing, from the initial contact to the return of keys. Allie was quick with his response to our request to book, provided itinerary details and arranged taxi transportation from the train station. Additionally, manager Barbi, was a delight. She too helped us with our trip details once on-site and was waiting for us at the front door upon our arrival.

The pictures are representative of the apartment. We had more than enough space as a family of 3, and appreciated the layout (as we could close the door off the bedrooms/bathroom to separate the living/dining/kitchen space). The apartment was very clean. Basic kitchen/cleaning supplies were in the cupboards as well as basic cooking needs (salt, pepper, olive, oil, coffee, tea, etc...). Additionally, there were a handful of kid's activities in the cupboard which our 6-year old enjoyed (puzzles, card games, etc...). The apartment is fully stocked with travel maps and Budapest books as well. We found these very handy in making daily exploration plans.

The apartment building was very quiet and we rarely heard any of our neighbors. The location was perfect for us....close to the market, lots of restaurants, Liberty Bridge, etc....

We hope to return another time, especially when we can take advantage of warmer weather and outdoor cafes!
