Luxury 2 Bed 2 Bath Apartment - Central Budapest Close to Opera, Andrassy Avenue and Liszt Ferenc
About Linda Jones
We have been together over 20 years now and are lucky to have a daughter Lucy. We have always enjoyed travelling, and we realised that as parents, the best quality self catering accommodation was for us better than a stay in a hotel. Over the years we have found the best and worst experiences of staying in owners properties and we have drawn on all this history to ensure everyone who stays with us has the best holiday possible.
Linda Jones purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Linda Jones chose Terézváros
We love Budapest, it is a lively, vibrant city a mixture of culture, history and excitement. There is always something to enjoy in Budapest, Christmas Markets, Summer and Music Festivals, Wine and Beer Festivals, Operatic and Classical Concerts.

Fantastic apartment, great location
A great apartment in a beautiful city, exactly as described.
Perfection in Budapest!
One week in Budapest – our first visit to the City – where to stay? What great luck to find the Mahler Apartment, absolute perfection.
Check in was quick and smooth by Andy who patiently answered all of our questions before we were left to settle in and explore. The two bedrooms are situated at either end of this huge apartment with a living room, open kitchen area and a bathroom in the middle. One bedroom has an en suite bathroom (the washing machine was in here). The apartment is on the 2nd floor; there is a lift so no problems with access.
It's so well equipped and sparkling clean - everything is there that you could possibly need during your stay. There's an oven and hob, fridge, toaster, kettle, etc. and even a dishwasher. Nothing has been overlooked in making this apartment one of the most comfortable I've ever stayed in. The rooms are huge with high ceilings. We stayed during one of the hottest periods but fans are provided. TV with English channels, books, games, DVDs and guide books are also provided.
Although this apartment is near restaurants, bars, cafes and main roads, there is absolutely no noise as it's situated on an inside courtyard. We heard no noise at all, all week, so slept well – yes, comfortable beds too! Perfection!
I would definitely come back to Budapest, but during a less hot season. It's an amazing City. We were in Hungary for the Hungarian Grand Prix, so had no choice on dates. Be sure the Mahler Apartment will be the first choice for our next visit and I'd like to thank Linda for making her beautiful apartment available for travellers like us.
Just not quite what we wanted
I hesitate to write a mixed review, because I'm sure this place will work really well for most people. Overall, the location is excellent, and it has all the basics (it's not a luxury apartment, even though that word is used many times in the description). Renata was very kind as well. Those were the things we really liked. And Budapest is a beautiful city.
Here were our frustrations:
1. Every single window faces a walkway (not a busy one, but still). It's hard to leave windows to the bedroom open at night when someone can walk by and see you. This was a surprise to us. It was really hot, so we were happy that 3 fans were provided.
2. The showers don't seem to drain particularly well.
3. We were given 4 big towels for 4 people. That generally works, but as I mentioned, the showers didn't drain particularly well, and there's only half a wall for the showers...and we have kids...so it got a bit wet in the bathroom. Of course, we want to clean that up to be good tenants, but there were no towels to do so, unless we wanted to use one of our own bath towels.
4. The washer broke down with our clothes in it. I always make sure to rent a place with a working washer, so this was frustrating. Renata was kind enough to come the next day and check it out (she hung our clothes, too, as we weren't there), but by then, our clothes had sat in dirty water for 24 hours and some of it didn't come out too clean.
5. The location on the map was listed right on Jokal terrace, but the actual location is about 250 meters away. Is that a big deal? Maybe not. But why not just list the location where it actually is?
This may sound like a lot of complaining. I guess my expectations were higher based on the reviews and the description. And I would hope that the washer doesn't break for each renter, so hopefully that's not a problem for most people.
Thank you for your comments on Mahler and appreciating the wonderful location, we always welcome guest feedback.
The architectural features, as advertised, including the peace and beauty of the inner facing courtyard, are what most people love about Mahler. As you say, that did not work for you but will work for everyone else.
The washing machine had its annual service just before your arrival, after you left we had a differerent company look at the machine. Neither could find any fault, so we are not sure what happened during your stay. As you say, Renata was amazing and responded as soon as she was informed.
Thanks again for your comments.
Wonderful city break
Lovely apartment. Fantastic location. Warm welcome. Beautiful city.
Everything needed was in the apartment and the building was renovated well and security good.
