Brilliant Base in Budapest

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but praise for this apartment. It is in an excellent location, 10 minutes walk to the Danube and 2 minutes to a tram stop which pretty much takes you wherever you need to go.The apartment is charming, spotlessly clean and comfortable, with just about every facility you need. Even though the temperature was in the 30's during our visit, it was always a cool, safe, quiet haven to return to. The owners were wonderfully helpful and welcoming:from the enquiry process right through to being greeted they were a mine of information. We have rented many apartments in Europe and this was one of our favourites. We are adamant we will return to Budapest one day and could not hope to stay anywhere better. Thank you so much, Gordon and Kati!

Owner's Response: Thank you Helen for choosing our apartment and we’re delighted that you enjoyed your stay there. The high ceilings and thick walls of this spacious period apartment keep it cool and airy in the summer months. The same thick walls, and an excellent heating system, keep it warm and cosy in the wintertime.

A clean, spacious apartment close to the Danube and central Budapest

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay in Gordon's and Kati's apartment very much. The apartment was very clean and had lots of room. Kati's father met me when I checked in and showed me the apartment. Gordon and Kati were accessible by phone and always willing to help. I found the information that is included on the website extremely helpful: how to get from the airport, where to buy food, recommended restaurants and sights to see both inside and outside Budapest, etc., etc. The apartment is located in a very pleasant neighborhood very close to the beautiful Danube and all the incredible places to visit in Budapest. I will return to Budapest and I hope that Gordon's and Kati's apartment will be available when I do return.

Perfect Apartment containing everything you need for a relaxed and comfortable holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Having decided to visit Budapest with our daughter and son in law we needed to find somewhere that would tick all the boxes for each one of us. We found that place! The whole process, searching for an apartment, payment for it, getting to it, staying in it and leaving it, was so well organised and ran so smoothly that we could not have chosen a better place.

The apartment is located on the Bude side of the river which is much quieter and more relaxed than the Pest side. We walked everyday to visit the sights of Budapest as the location of the apartment was not too far for us, however, the trams, metro and buses were very easy to access and we used them to visit further afield and to get to the airport.

The owners of the apartment were fantastic and supplied all the information required for an easy stay in Budapest. They were also very quick to answer any questions we had. Nothing was too much trouble.

From all of us we'd like to say a huge thank you to Gordon and Kati for making our holiday everything we wanted. Highly recommended.

Great apartment with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is in a quiet but central neighbourhood. It is very comfortable, with everything that a family could possibly need. Kati and her family gave us a warm welcome and were very helpful and flexible in adapting to our schedule.

Wonderful Budapest apartment

  • 5 of 5

From my initial contact with owner, Gordon, everything about this rental went smoothly. Located in a quiet neighborhood but just a few minutes from public transport one could access all of Budapest easily. The apartment is well appointed and quite comfy. My husband and I would definitely recommend a stay here!

About The Owner

We're an Irish/Hungarian couple with three children. We started our family here and have lots of amenities for younger guests too. Eventually the time came to relocate abroad and that's how the holiday rental opportunity came about.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why The Owner chose Castle Hill

We bought the apartment to be our home in Budapest during our 6 year stay in Hungary. From the ad we knew the location was spot on - just on the borderlands between the quiet, residential second district and the bustle of the city centre. Indeed the river is a mere 10 minute walk from the front door.

We'd both lived in Pest on the East side of the river and so really appreciated the new-found quiet in the evenings that our new apartment would afford us. At the same time we were glad we were only minutes from the amenities of the downtown. No need to move to the sticks to bring up the kids and we could stay close to family and friends.

What makes this apartment unique

When we saw the apartment we decided straight away that this was it - even though it needed a major renovation! The high ceilings, the great use of space, the unusual angling of the walls and the large bay windows, make this a very bright airy but 'natural' space to live in.

Excellent public transport connections mean the Castle District and caves, Andrássy Avenue, the Hungarian Parliament, the State Operahouse - indeed the whole World Heritage area is within very easy reach.
