What makes this Apartment unique
I like to offer a great option to see and learn Budapest daily life and see the sights . I lived my all life in Budapest also I became a daily biker 20 years ago which means know every small secret corners where artist or students get together for a coffee , wine or limonade . I would like to write just shortly about my city or village tours which can be by bike or walk / public transport combination as you choose . The city tour can be half day or full day . I never learned to guide but love my city and I was always curious about history and people and I always ask about people life so if you like to see this city through a local person eye , that is me . Every tour I do I share my life and a small part of my soul so I happy to wait the right small group of travellers . Keywords what you can see and hear on a city tour : sights like Parliament , walk on Chain bridge , walk around Royal Palace , Mathias church , Fishermen bastion , than Saint Stephen Basilica , Opera , Synagogue , Great Market hall , Heroes square . Whate else : have a drink at Simpla garden ruin pub and if there is live music listen a little bit than discuss which thermal bath the best and what you should do there to follow the local tradition , book a table in our favorite restaurant where is live music every evening and not touristy and reasonable prices (a maincourse 10 euros ) . And my stories (local people life , communism and so on )what I learned from people and my family ... The village tour to Szentendre the art village can be by bike or boat or train or these combination . This is a romantic village in Hungary with art , cafes , 300 yo houses . The bike tour is 19 km on bikeroad next Danube river . Also I can show 3 beautiful places in 1 day Esztergom first capital of Hungary than Visegrad at Danube bend and Szentendre .

The perfect stay
In a nutshell I will say this: This is the perfect apartment to stay in. It is pristine clean, quiet, not in the hub of the tourist area but only about 3 blocks from the parliament building. It is a block from the Danube and the tip of a Margaret Island. The apartment is also situated in a beautifully kept old building. Janos, the owner is the perfect host. He was incredibly helpful & friendly and because he loves Budapest so much he wants you to have the best experience possible. When I return to Budapest I will stay in this apartment again.
Lovely, welcoming apartment and owner!
My friend and I enjoyed a lovely 5-day stay in the apartment. It was spotlessly clean, modern, spacious, the kitchen fully equipped, comfortable beds, extra towels, good layout of the apt, quiet building, and very good location near the Margaret Bridge (2 min walk to Tram number 2 that follows the length of the river). The area is residential (a plus!) but with several nice restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The nearest metro is a little further away than what we thought (10 min) but still useful. The added bonus to the apt is defintely the owner - Janos! Very friendly, knowledgeable, always available for answering questions or providing tips, and sincerely wants his guests to enjoy their stay. He made us feel very welcome and we are really glad to have met his acquaintance. We really enjoyed Budapest and this apt is highly recommended!
Super Flat Great Location Superlative Hosts
I spent a week at this flat - and would highly recommend it to anyone. So attractive and comfortable - all the comforts of home. The A/C was a life-saver in the hot weather! Fully furnished to a very high standard. Everything was updated and modern, but done with great taste. Loved it!
The location is great - just on the edge of the tourist area - but very quiet. A very short walk to the Parliament Buildings,and to the Margit Island with its running track. Food shopping and restaurants close by. Train and tram connections local as well.
Best of all were the hosts! So friendly, helpful and accommodating. Enthusiastic, eager to share their knowledge of their city and interested in what you want to do - and to help you accomplish it. I felt comfortable in asking for help and advice. They are close by if you need them - but leave you to amuse yourself if that is your preference.
Planning to go back again next year! Thanks so much Jozsef and Janos!
Wonderful Central Apartment
There are so many great things to say about this apartment - it is well set up, the beds are very comfortable, it's in a very central location, and the A/C was wonderful! The apartment was so clean!! There were plenty of fresh towels, and the bathroom was lovely, set up well with a huge shower. The kitchen had everything you could need, including a full size fridge. It's just a beautiful apartment, in the perfect place to see everything - there's so much to see within walking distance. It has an elevator, and a beautiful interior courtyard. (the only issue in this area is parking, but we didn't have any trouble finding a spot)
Not only is the apartment wonderful, but Janos and Jozsef are wonderful! We've been to Budapest many times as we have family there, but the guys had suggestions of things to see that we hadn't even heard of! They were very accommodating when we needed an extra day, when we had questions, and when we needed a clothes dryer. They are great hosts, and the kind of people that you would want to spend more time with. We would have loved to have more time there and hang out with them! (That's saying a lot coming from me, I'm not a really social person)
If you are looking to stay at this apartment, don't hesitate - it's perfect.
Great location and hosts
Very clean property in a very pleasant and convenient area. Close by the river, mass transit and tourist areas (without being right in them). We did not use the kitchen but did use the washing machine. Nice bath, good AC. One bedroom and then a living room with a sleeper sofa. Slept well. Quiet building. Hosts could not have been nicer. They spent two hours with us when we arrived and shared a lot of information regarding not only the unit but the city. We used most of their tips. Would stay here again.
