About Allie

I am a Hungarian-Canadian - we purchased this flat so that our family has a home-base when we visit Budapest a few times each year. As this is our home away from home, you will find that the apartment is equipped to a much higher standard than vacation rentals.

Allie purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Allie chose Palace District

The apartment is ideally situated downtown, a short walk to all the main attractions and amenities, and features underground parking (subject to availability). We purchased the flat newly-built to a very high standard, giving us the peace of mind that we will not be spending our visits dealing with 'old building problems'.

What makes this apartment unique

Taking a short stroll to the Central Market, built by Eiffel, to pick up the finest ingredients for an amazing dinner, or visiting one of the many popular pubs and restaurants on Raday street nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying at your apartment and we also thank for the lovely sparkling. Barbi was very nice too. What a fantastic location, all of my friends and family who visited us simply loved it!!! You couldn`t ask for a better location!!

We will definitely come back and happily recommend it to other people.

Perfect stay in Budapest

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights in Budapest in this lovely apartment, and were totally pleased with everything about it. The place has been nicely updated, with a modern highly functional kitchen, great bathrooms, and comfortable bedrooms. Plenty of closet and storage space to put clothes and suitcases made it so things did not get cluttered. There are two balconies that overlook the inner courtyard, and although the weather in early November was cool, we were able to sit outside in the sun for morning coffee. The heaters worked well, although we mostly turned them down as the place was well insulated. Although we did not use them, each main room has an air conditioner that would make things very pleasant in the summer. There were plenty of restaurants and shops close by, the Great Hall at the end of the block had every food item you could think of. The location was central to the Pest side, with metro, tram and bus stops within a five minute walk. Our interaction with the support staff was excellent, and a driver was there at the airport to pick us up (25 euros) and deliver us to Erkel street, where Christine was waiting to show us the apartment. The wifi and TV worked great, with several English language channels (CNN, Bloomberg, Skyview). In our many years of staying at VRBO places, this ranks up at the top.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your thoughtful review! Even though the building and the apartment is very well insulated, there are 3 heat sources available: 1) radiant in-floor heating, 2) radiators in each room, and 3) the AC units can also provide heat too... though we find that most times, the in-floor heating is sufficient. Glad you discovered the great market hall, and thanks for sharing your experience with other travellers.

I have stayed here a few times and each time it was as good as the last. The flat is well located and comfortable. It has all the amenities you might need.

Quite simply a nice place to stay.

Very Comfortable Well Located Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days in the apartment. It is well located, particularly for those interested in food. The Central Market is a five minute walk, and there are small grocery stores nearby. The kitchen is well equipped. and the apartment owners obviously enjoy food and cooking. Public transportation is five minutes away and a nearby street has plenty of restaurant options. There was plenty of room in the apartment for three adults and having a second bathroom was definitely a plus. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the apartment.

Owner's Response: Thanks Roger -- you are spot on! We love food, and truly enjoy cooking for all our friends and family when we are in Budapest. Our kitchen, therefore, is furnished with the tools and equipment that all foodies would appreciate! Glad you enjoyed your stay; thanks for sharing your experience and hope to welcome you back one day.

Perfect is the best word to summarize this place! The owners have thought of everything.

  • 5 of 5

Before we even arrived, we received a list of things to see and do in the city. The owners even arranged for us to be picked up at the airport, which I highly recommend. We were greeted by Christina who let us in and gave us an overview of the area as well as additional recommendations for restaurants and attractions. There was even a bottle of excellent Hungarian bottle of wine waiting for us. The apartment was spotless, the beds comfortable and the umbrellas sure came in handy when our travel umbrellas did not do the job. The location was perfect! Just a block away from the market, and the Danube. Would definitely stay here again if we ever have the pleasure of returning to Budapest. Was sad to leave, felt like our home away from home.
