About Sophia Papp
We are a family business (not agency). I am very much into interior design, so much that this flat is being featured in Interior Magazines. I get my ideas from Scandinavian blogs and magazines. Most of the furnitures are from flea markets which is my hobby, I buy old furnitures and renovate them or sometimes just paint them myself.
Sophia Papp purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Sophia Papp chose Palace District
Built in Art Nouveau Style in 1911, I especially love the stairway leading up to the flat. The location is amazing, its in the middle of the Palace Quarter, with Mikszath Kalman square 50 meters away. Both the 1848 and 1956 revolution started just 2 blocks away, which gives this district a unique meaning for anyone knowing the history of Hungary.
What makes this Apartment unique
The stairway. The huge double doors in the apartment. The building has lots of locals living in so it gives a chance to see how hungarians live.

Very well kept! Clean, up to date!
My friends and I shared this apartment for 5 nights. Everything was clean and neat. Sophia met us there and gave us all the info we needed about the apartment and even told us about restaurants recommendations. AC worked well. It was a very HOT weekin July. It was a short walk to public transportation, and also close to Big Bus Tours stop. We used this quite a bit to get around. All appliances in working order (the dishwasher leaked a little, but a towel was provided to absorb the water). All in all a great experience!
Sophia arranged for transportation to the airport at the end of our stay and even gave us some chocolates as a parting gift!
Only down side is that there were three flights of stairs to walk up (92 stairs)
Great location, clean, and quite place
The apartment is very well maintained, clean, and in a quite building. The location and proximity to walking distances from main attraction and touristic points is a bonus as well. All appliances, TV, and WIFI worked great. Note: Just be aware that the floors are high and no elevator.
Great location and beautiful.
The interiors are beautiful, fresh, bright, airy, clean, and comfortable. The exterior of the building threw us off at first, but it is a safe neighborhood and the apartment is just perfect. We were able to walk to many places from there, and the owner Sophie took time to sit with us and give us detailed restaurant recommendations. This might sound silly, but having travelled so much, we are used to terrible shower set ups... we were SO happy with Sophie's shower. It was clean and the water pressure/temperature were amazing.
Centrally located, quiet, comfortable, charming
Excellent service and communication before and during the stay. The renter organized a taxi pickup from the airport for us (€25 one way), which I would recommend for first-time visitors. The apartment is in a great location, five minutes on foot from Kalvin Ter and 10 minutes from the Great Market Hall or the Cafe Central. Still it's absolutely quiet and well-lit because it's in an inner courtyard on the 3rd (=top) floor. Everything was as described, clean, spacious and comfortable for the four of us. The wifi is faster than ours at home! The high ceilings and double doors create a nice open atmosphere.
Grocery stores with tourist-friendly hours are nearby, and just around the corner is Krudy utca with its cafes and bistros. On our second-to-last day, we rented bikes and regretted not having done it sooner. Yellow Zebra on Kazinczy utca is a good place to rent them. In October 2013 they had just started with a fleet of new bikes and were very flexible and nice.
Would definitely recommend this apartment for adults w older children (no elevator, so you get some cardio in during your stay) and will look at this one for our next visit too. Thanks for everything!
Very nice apartment !
We stayed 5 days in Sophia's apartment.
It's a very nice, warm en spacious apartment.
Sophia has made it very cosy and the decorations are beautiful.
It has also everything you need for a comfortable stay.
We felt really at home!
There is no noise in and arround the apartment so you can sleep very good.
It's very close to shops and supermarkets (Spar and Coop) and the places of interest and sights. You can do everything by foot if you like.
If we ever plan another visit to Boedapest i would love to go back to Sophia's apartment.
