City-centre, recently renovated, 100 sqm / 1,000+sq.ft. period apartment
- english, french, italian, hungarian
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.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Owner chose District II
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.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This is an apartment, not a hotel with great access to owner who assisted us with answers to several questions we had. A 10 minute walk to a train trolley that took us where we wanted to go easily and fast.
The apartment was sparkling clean, spacious and outfitted well with basic supplies. Coming and going was a breeze with quick local access to groceries, drug store items and the river, as well as neighborhood restaurants and a great shopping center with trolley transfer center.
Apartment had brochures and travel books sufficient to leave yours at home. We stayed for two weeks and never once regretted our choice.
Great location - easy access to Pest side of river from quiet neighborhood in Buda.
Great apartment for a couple or a family. Location is just a few minutes walk from bridge over the Danube that puts you at northern terminus of Tram #2 which serves Riverfront Pest. Hosts are the best I have worked with in my VRBO experiences.
Beautiful apartment, great location, amazing hosts.
We loved our time spent in Budapest and this apartment made it even better. Close to a tram and metro stop (5-15 min walk) and very close to the Castle district. The apartment was very open and spacious, comfortable beds, towels provided, big refrigerator and kitchen if you want to cook at the apartment. The hosts were super kind and helpful- gave us recommendations for food/tourist spots and made sure we made it to and from the airport easily. Would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Budapest looking for a place to stay!
Excellent apartment for seeing Budapest
The apartment is perfect for sightseeing in Budapest. Located very close to everything and yet away from the hustle and bustle of the Pest side. It is spacious and clean, has a kitchen you can actually cook in should you wish to, and a lovely big warm bathroom too. The extra separate toilet is a bonus. The hosts provide a lot of information, including photographs of the main apartment block front door and the apartment door so that when you arrive you feel you know the apartment already.
For grocery shopping head down to Mammut shopping centre just a short walk away - there’s a large Spar shop there. There are also some nice places to eat in the area.
The apartment is great value for money and we would not hesitate to book it again.
Enjoyed our stay. Bring shampoo.
Our first trip to Budapest and what a wonderful apartment to stay in while we explored this amazing city. A beautiful apartment fully furnished. We were welcomed and greeted and any questions we had were quickly answered. Within walking distance from attractions and historical sites. Thanks so much to Kati, Gordon and family. We will definitely recommend to family and friends.
Located centrally on the Buda (West) side of Budapest, our apartment offers a perfect base for exploring this great city.
Situated about 10 minutes walk from the Margaret Bridge (Márgit Híd) – even less to the river Danube – and within 5 minutes of parks, shops, and public transport this apartment is located in a perfect location from which to explore one of the world’s great cities.
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.
