About the property

Sophisticated 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with free WIFI at Astoria

Our beautiful apartment benefits from its perfect position in the heart of the city. Very cosy, elegant, tastefully decorated with all the comfort you can wish for on your holiday in Budapest.

There is a working fireplace in the big living area, 2 air-conditioning, fully equipped kitchen and a great view to one of the sights in the city (great synagogue) from the living room and master bedroom.

There is a 24h free WIFI, lots of foreign books (Romans, travel guides, Hungarian culinary books) to read, many foreign channels and lots of good DVD's to watch. Games for children and adults. Lots of toys. If you are coming with a smaller child or a baby we can give a cot, high chair, baby bathtub, sleeping bag and even a pushchair!

The apartment is right in the city center be Astoria, yet very quiet and sunny as it is in a one way street on the top floor in a historical house where everybody stops to take pictures of it.

It is just steps away from the popular spots and walking distance to the sights.

No need for public transportation if you stay in this apartment!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"La amabilidad de la propietaria y su disposición a ayudar y resolver inconvenientes es extraordinaria. Se encontraba limpio y dotado de libros, revistas, Dvds, internet, antena parabólica con canales sintonizados en todos los idiomas... El apartamento es amplio, bien amueblado, luminoso y silencioso. Ubicado prácticamente en el centro de la ciudad, a dos minutos de una línea de tranvía y a siete del metro. Acaso la única pega es que, al ser un edificio antiguo, hay que subir tres pisos a pie pues no dispone de ascensor. ¡Estupendo!"

We loved this apartment!

  • 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.

The appartment is lovely - light, clean, with plenty of character, located in the Jewish quarter and very central, with plenty of kitchen utensils and sheets and towels. The owners were very helpful.

We were in Budapest in February with our four children and Kata's place was perfect. There was plenty of room for all of us, it was spotless, and well equipped. We requested firewood too late, but even so, Kata's husband made a special effort to get us some last minute. They were both readily available if we needed anything. The great location meant we could walk everywhere. The only thing I would warn people about is that this apartment is on a top floor without an elevator, so if steps are particularly difficult it may not be suitable. Otherwise...perfect! Thanks Kata and Atilla for a great stay!

Simply great !!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a week in Budapest and can say only positive things about the apartment.

Everything showed in the photos is real, even better. Really big and confortable beds, clean and tidy, the kitchen with all the appliances one could need...

The location is superb. You can reach almost every place of the city on foot.

Also, many nice restaurants in the area.

Thanks to Kata and Atilla for your info about the area and your help with the transfer from and to the airport.

Amazing place with all you want and more!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the whole month of September in Kata and Attila’s apartment on Sip and had the most wonderful time rating it as A++. Upon arrival all was perfect condition. Kata welcomed us and spent over an hour showing how everything worked and marking a map for us.

When you stay for this length of time location is very important. The apartment is very central - dead center to everywhere you want.

The pictures on Homeaway are accurate except they don’t show the high the ceilings - making each room feel even larger.The windows give tons of light and keep out any unwanted noise. The two bathrooms are large and modern –There is lots of work space given Kata’s consideration to extra furniture with shelves. Plenty of towels too. The kitchen is well stocked with dishwasher and all the cookware, plates, glass and flatware you could need. There is a washing machine which we used extensively and the large drying rack worked well and the clothes dried quickly. The bedrooms have nice linens, lots of extra pillows and blankets, and good reading lights. The second bedroom is on the other side of the apartment giving extra privacy. It has a loft with king size bed above and queen below so there is ample sleeping capacity. The living room is very comfortable and welcoming. We used the WIFI very heavily and it worked fast and flawlessly for the entire month. We only used the heat once near the end of September and Kata explained how to easily work it. There is a wonderful health club close by called Holmes Place if you need it.

Maybe you can find an equivalent apartment but one which comes with the hosts who cares and goes out of their way to be very helpful is a jewel. Kata was amazing and made herself 100% available for every question or advice we needed. She helped us with the new bike rental system and her tips on restaurants was 100% perfect –Most and Vintage Garden and Iguana. We also liked the Blue Bird for breakfast and desserts, Zeller for dinner and Kandallo for a burger. She and Attila gave us detailed information on excursion ideas to Lake Balaton and we went to Godollo one day on their advice. She organized weekly housekeeping for us and was instrumental in organizing the airport transfers at a really great price for all our family’s needs (10 trips). We enjoyed an evening of entertainment listening to Attila’s band who played locally. Book this apartment when you are in Budapest!

Wonderful apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 5 nights during our trip to the beautiful city of Budapest. Located at the top floor of the building, the lack of lift made transporting heavy suitcases up and down a little tricky but that would be our only complaint of the whole stay. Situated in the heart of the Jewish quarter, this great apartment was in walking distance of many of the sites but also had nearby tram and metro stops if required. The surrounding are is very safe and pleasant with numerous coffee shops, restaurants and food stores. In fact, the flat is only a few streets away from one of the best ruin bars in Budapest (Szimpla kert) which is a must to visit if you want to experience Budapest nightlife. Kata and her husband were easily reachable by email and very helpful in promptly answering all of our queries in addition to arranging travel for us back to the airport on the last day. The apartment itself is spacious, clean, well equipped and most importantly it easily accommodated all 7 of us. We highly recommend this apartment especially as it is such great value!

The property is right in down town, walking distance from all the sights.

Closest Metro Station is Astoria which is on the red metro line but also close to Deak F. Ter on the blue and yellow metro line.

The apartment is right behind the beautiful Great Synagogue with view to it from the living and master bedroom.

National Muzuem, Váci shopping street, River Duna, St. Stephan Basilica, Andrássy Boulvard are max. 10 min walking by foot from the flat.

The international train station is 20 min walk away or 2 metro stops from where you can reach Lake Balaton, Eger Wein Region or Western, East, North or south Europe.

Coming from the Ferihegy Airport by public transportation you don't have to change metro line, just get out at Deak F. Ter and walk about 7-8 min to the apartment.

I can organize you private transfers to the flat from everywhere to the city if required.

Other Activities: sight seeing
