Things to do in Central Danube, Hungary

Any visitor to a Central Danube holiday rental must head into Budapest, if only for a day. Although the whole region is adorned with stunning monuments to years gone by, Budapest has a remarkable density of historic attractions. The covered market of Vaci Utca makes for almost essential viewing, and the great range of museums and galleries that nestle among the ancient streets provide visitors with a magnificent insight into the history, lifestyles and cultures of Central Danube. Budapest is most famous for its Opera and Theatre performances, with people flocking to Central Danube accommodation from across the globe to experience the finest of European cultures in one of Europe’s most breath taking settings.

One of the finest ways to explore the Central Danube region is from the waters of the River Danube. Taking a kayak or canoe along the river is an absolutely sublime way to travel through the region, giving you a completely unique view of the dramatic Central Danube landscapes.

The Central Danube is an area of thermal spas. There are a great range of thermal spas, with water erupting from the earth at anything from 21˚C to a scalding 76˚C. There are some 118 spa centres to choose from when staying in self catering Central Danube accommodation, from ancient Turkish Baths to cutting edge modern centres.

The apartment itself is a wonder of design with spacious en suite bedrooms, a well appointed lounge/ diner and well equipped kitchen. Tibor has spent a long time thinking through the needs of the visitor with the most comprehensive set of guides we have ever seen. There is also a superb restaurant within 50 metres( Kolette's Bistro). Overall, we couldn't have had a better base for our visit with Tibor even arranging taxi transfers to the airport(€28). An excellent experience- many thanks Tibor!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Three friends, one couple and a single were at this apartment from January 31st to February 8, 2017. It is perfectly situated and very central in the Jewish quarter next to the Synagogue and, about 10 min. walk to the Danube, the Szechenyi baths, Saint Stephens Cathedral, not to mention the many grocery stores. When we arrived, Kata's husband Attila was there to give us a tour of the apartment. He even took the time to show us various landmarks and stores on a city map, so we were quickly able to situate ourselves. A bag of wood was provided for the fireplace. The apartment is spacious, attractive, well-renovated, with high ceilings and impeccably clean. It has two closed bedrooms and two full bathrooms offering lots of privacy. It was very quiet, relaxing, and we were able to get some well-deserved rest after all the walks AND going up the stairs to the 3rd floor where the apartment is (no elevators). To say that we were in great shape after our vacation is an understatement! Note: owners were quick to reply to our emails if we had any questions, very helpful. By the way, internet service is very efficient. We however had a struggle with the TV satellite, it takes getting used to. Over all, we would highly recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to go back.

Great location, only a 5 minute walk away from the Parliament. With plenty of great restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend staying in this apartment. Very attentive host too.
