Lovly Flat

  • 5 of 5

Very nice flat, clean, and central. Very close to shopping and some fine restaurants. Also walking distance to all the best attractions. George and Barbara were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here the next time we visit Budapest.

Gorgeous, Cozy Apartment in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect apartment for our group of 2 couples during our visit to Budapest. It is beautifully decorated but also extremely comfortable. George was very kind and met us upon arrival to show us how to use everything and gave us helpful information about the area. Everything worked perfectly, including the kitchen appliances, washer and dryer, WiFi and television. The beds were comfortable and the apartment was very quiet, we slept really well. The location is central to everything, we walked to all of the major tourist sites, but it is also very near a major metro stop as well as other public transportation. We loved exploring the restaurants and shops surrounding the apartment, we stopped in at the Roni ABC market on the corner every day to get supplies for breakfast or just something to snack on. We would absolutely want to stay here again on another trip to Budapest.

Beautiful Apartment. Excellent Location. Felt Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous apartment was such a great choice for my family. First off, it is centrally located just steps away from the square in front of St. Stephens Basilica, The Chain Bridge, Andrassy Avenue, shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, and transportation. If you are looking for the perfect centrally located place when visiting Budapest, this is it.

The apartment is beautiful, clean, cozy, and tastefully decorated. It has historic charm in some elements of the architecture, mixed with modern, updated conveniences, as shown in the pictures of the apartment. Not shown in the pictures is the gorgeous historic courtyard of the building right outside the apartment door! Too beautiful for words! There was definitely enough space for my family of four, with two grown children, to spread out and have enough space to relax without feeling like we were crowding each other. There is so much storage in this apartment that we were able to unpack our things, and also have room to store our luggage out of sight. Having two updated and clean bathrooms was a huge bonus, and the modern kitchen with all its conveniences made this rental experience feel like we were at home. Also, having a washer and dryer in the apartment was a fantastic bonus.

Lastly, the owners of this apartment made this rental experience so comfortable for us. They are quick to respond to your questions, and they made all of the steps of the rental process very easy, from the initial rental request, to the arrival and departure details, and for all of the questions in between. They are very good at all aspects of communication during the rental process.

We will definitely be back to Budapest, and we will definitely request to rent this apartment again. It felt like our home away from home. We miss it already!

Flat in a great location to everything

  • 4 of 5

We completely enjoyed staying in this flat, in was close to everything. The ice cream parlor that makes rose shaped ice cream, the strudel house, and everything we wanted to do we were able to walk to, the restaurant on the street below were first class. The flat was clean, and very nice, and comfortable. Beds were comfortable too. There are more steps than you except, but manageable.

There's a little market just around the corner, very convenient. Metro station at the end of the street was very good too.
