CENTRAL INDEED: STEP OUTSIDE THE BUILDING AND THE BEAUTIFUL ST STEVEN BASILICA IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. Enjoy the peaceful morning while sipping on your espresso next door and watch as the city wakes up. No need to worry about beating the crowd when you are staying with us. We are located at one of the must see locations in downtown Budapest. The area is full of great restaurants, bars, cafés and the 'best in town' ice cream shop is just around the corner. There are 3 grocery stores (1 of them open 24/7), ATMs, currency exchange offices in 4 minutes walking distance.

The square is only open for pedestrians and the apartment is facing the inner courtyard, that makes our place very quiet and private. Metro, bus and trolley lines, underground garages are all within 5 minutes walking distances from our building. The Danube (ports of international river cruises), Chain Bridge, Parliament Building, Opera House, Shopping Street are also in 10 or less minutes walking. You could rent bikes on the square or hire a rickshaw to take you around.

Saint Steven Square is a perfect starting point for sight seeing. You look at Budapest's grand building, the Basilica, when you step outside. It is an appealing and fun location with many performances during the day and lively night scene after dark.

The apartment is on the 4th floor (Yes, Elevator) that allows light and air in. Free WiFi, cable TV included.

We will be happy to arrange your taxi reservations and provide you with many great info on Budapest to find fun destinations and recommend historical sights.

Hope to see you soon!

Great location and cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Judit was a kind and helpful host. She gives maps of the area along with restaurants and links for many different activities including free walking tours (we did 2). The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. I’m not sure if the air conditioning in the bedroom didn’t work, or we just didn’t tknow how to work it. No matter, there were plenty of fans. Being by the basilica was a great people watching place and close to everything. A wonderful stay, thank you Judit.

Great Apartment in the Center of Budapest!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment has to be one of the best in all of Budapest! The front door of the building is right on St. Stephen's Basilica square; however, the apartment is actually on a quiet inner courtyard with no sounds from square. The apartment is nicely furnished with everything needed for a great stay! Bed is comfortable and kitchen stocked to be able to prepare light meals. But who wants to cooks when there are so many wonderful cafe's and restaurants on the surrounding streets. The apartment is a great location and we were easily able to walk across the Szechenyi Chain Bridge to Buda Castle, the Fisherman's Bastion, Matthias Church and Gellert Hill. We also walked to the Parliament Building and all around Margaret Island from the apartment. Be sure to climb the stairs of St. Stephen's Basilica for a beautiful view of the entire city. We even walked to Heroes' Square and the Szechenyi thermal baths to enjoy a nice soak after all the walking. Communication with Kris and Judit was fantastic with quick responses to questions and helpful information and maps for getting around the city. We are already looking forward to returning to Budapest and would definitely stay at the apartment again!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is right in the city center so it's close to everything. We used the transit system only a few times because we could easily walk to most things. The bedroom. as the photos show is just slightly bigger than the bed, but the bed was comfortable and that's the important thing. No view out the windows because it's on the back side of the building on a courtyard, but this was good because it was quiet.

everything available for a pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

Apartment very central for all attractions easily reached on foot. Very quiet , super comfy

bed. Right on Basilica square with coffee shops, restaurants and the best ice cream shop

around the corner. Supermarket was 15 mins away and a little further on the best pastry

shop. Judit was very helpful on my arrival helping with a map. Also a very nice taxi driver

and very reliable. Would certainly stay there again.
