About Ann Barry
My husband Aidan and I live in Co Cork Ireland. We were bowled over by the beauty of Budapest on our first visit and in 2004 we were lucky enough to buy our first apartment there (Elegance in the Heart) which is a very large three bedroom apartment literally a few steps from the most famous shopping street Vaci Utca. We use it as our holiday home and visit several times each year.
Ann Barry purchased this Apartment in 2004
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment gave us the creative opportunity to restore and modernize what are truly wonderful spaces which I loved doing. They also provided a place to hang my art, which is my other hobby.

Please use curtain pulleys to open and close curtains. Ceilings and curtain rails are very high. Tugging curtains will damage rail at ceiling, thanks

The apartment was fine, well located to attractions and as advertised (it is a strange layout, as you can see in the pics). It worked fine for our family of 5. Really the only concerns were the poor shower situation (hot water did run low; the shower curtain constantly sticks to your body in the tub layout) and the general layout. On a positive note, the host did make arrangements for us to leave our luggage early while the cleaner completed their duties, which was extremely helpful and greatly appreciated. On an extremely negative note, our hosts representative offered to take us to the airport for an early morning flight - when he didn't respond to my texts the morning of the flight, I called him and found he was not nearby, but still asleep! A bit of panic as we had to locate 2 cabs (since there were 5 of us) in a hurry, and a real problem in my viewpoint.
Thank you very much for review, which is important to us. We are pleased that you found the location and the apartment suitable for your group. The shower curtain over the bath was provided in response to earlier reviews that suggested a second shower in addition to the shower room would be useful to larger groups that wanted to have showers simultaneously. The curtain can be easily removed for those who wish to use the bath in the traditional manner. It must indeed have been very upsetting that the taxi that you arranged personally failed to come. Very stressful on the day you are going home. We would point out however that the taxi was not booked through us, and we have no financial connection whatever with that taxi business. I had explained there was a taxi rank less than one minute walk from the apartment. While we totally understand the frustration and distress, perhaps it may also be understandable that we are a little disappointed that this has reflected in a lower than our normal five star review, which we work hard to maintain.
Perfect apartment and location👍
Thanks Jesper, great to hear you all had a nice time.
Nice stay in Budapest
Nice place to stay in Budapest, right in the city, walkable to majority of the attractions in both Buda and Pest. Lulu was nice enough to pick us up at train station and then went to the apartment together by bus.
Easy to book this value for money apartment which is spacious and in the centre of town for easy access to the shops and restaurants. Even able to arrange to be picked up and returned to the airport.
Enjoyed our stay!
Thank you, we enjoyed our stay! The listing accurately reflected the apartment. Loved all the space, extremely roomy for the four of us. Perfect location. Everything we needed. Would stay again if ever visiting Budapest.
Super spacious and well located. Host provided a lot of useful information regarding travel and activities in Budapest which was greatly appreciated.
Franz Liszt airport is about 15km away. There is a minibus service from the airport. If you are arriving by car, my agent will advise you on best car parking lots in city centre. The apartment is also easily accessible by public transportation. Passengers are taken by a direct bus service (bus 200) to Köbánya-Kispest metro terminal. By this blue line (3) Metro from Köbánya-Kispe to Ferenciek Terre which is less than 5 mins walk from the apartment.
Situated in the most central and popular part of downtown, pedestrianized Budapest, within walking distance of most tourist attractions. Car hire is not necessary within the city as public transport facilities are excellent from the apartment.
There is an official airport taxi cabin directly outside the airport terminal exit door. You request your taxi there and give your destination address. A taxi usually comes immediately.
The taxi should cost between 6,000 and 7,000 forints which is about 22 or 23 euro. It takes about 20 or 25 minutes to reach the city centre.
If there is no arrival booking on your departure day, you can leave any time. If however there is an arrival you need to be packed by 11 am. Your luggage can be stored in the hall of the apartment until it is time for you to leave for the airport.
