APARTMENT DESCRIPTION

--------------------------

We love things that tell a story and let your story start here, in artistic and stylish Boshke [:boeshke] apartment, that has its own history and style. You will find here much more than a comfortable and cosy stay. You can start your journey of discovering artistic Budapest right form here.

After a complete renovation, that was executed with a lot of emotion and demand for perfection, this apartment became itself a small piece of art. As soon as you enter the mid-sized living room your eyes will capture a magnificent painting on the walls of the bedrooms.  These paintings-prints were executed by a professional painter artist and is considered to be the pieces of art. Unfortunately, not removable...The artist applied the same complex technique of the print but of a different subject in both baths that are adjoint to the bedrooms.  We bet you will enjoy to read few passages while washing your teeth in the morning!

Carefully chosen colors creates an exceptionally pleasant ambiance and the professional photos on the walls, executed under the supervision of the owner, will introduce you to the famous Hungarian artists. The modern furniture combined with the authentic antique furniture will provide you full comfort and will please your heart with aesthetics. You will be amazed to see how much charm the authentic bride's box, that presently serves as a support for TV set, brings to the apartment amongst other antique pieces of furniture. Take a glance to one of the baths and you will find a milking chair dating back from 1906 - if it could talk, it could tell you a lot.

This apartment was fully refurbished in 2016 to the highest western standard. This five stars, luxury apartment has two large bedrooms with high King Size bed in each. Both bedrooms have separate entries from the living room, the elegant sliding doors permitting privacy for those sleeping in each room. Each bedroom has convenient access to private bath/WC and kitchen through the foyer. The luxurious bathrooms are designed with walk-in rain showers.

THE BUILDING

------------------- 

The house in which the apartment is established is worth of attention: it is a historical monument and it belongs to the Hungary's national heritage. This beautiful apartment house was built in 1860.

On the ground floor a textile monopolist Paul Bramer establish a luxurious textile shop that sustained its status of luxury even in Socialist times. Recently the shop was renovated diligently preserving its authenticity and opened the top-designers shop under the name Icons by Bizanc (did you know that The Hungarian King Bella III was brought up in the Byzantine court?)

Even if you would like to avoid shopping it is worth to sneak in and get a flavour of that time when Budapest witnessed an enormous economical development and luxurious life started to be more and more present in the households of many manufacturers. And it seams that the house could not avoid a bliss of luxury: the first Miss Hungary, Boshke Simon ( , who won the crown in 1928 elections in Budapest, and next year  she became the Miss of Europe in Paris was a resident of this house for decades as she married to high society person and the owner of textile shop Paul Bramer.

The area is famous of it's astonishing, historical buildings, the lovely dining places and hip cafés.

The great thing about the location is that it can't really be more central, so you reach basically everything in a short walk. Yet it's in a small, silent pedestrian street (no car traffic) and since the apartment is facing the street, there is absolutely no noise disturbance (thanks to upper floor + heavy soundproof windows + shutters) of Budapest's busy nightlife.

If you go for the sights, you'll get to most of them in 2-10 minutes walking range.

About Tom Sipas

The owners of the Golden Stars Apartments in Budapest are: Tom (painter and ceramic artist) and Sother (fashion designer and interior decorator). We are both artists living and working in Budapest, where we take an active part in the city’s artistic and cultural life, and participate in various international exhibitions as well. Our apartments give you a taste of aristocratic Budapest and its highly developed cultural life. As professional artists (designers) we have strived to create an exclusive, aesthetically pleasing environment. We have both designed suites for various major hotels (such as Kempinski, Hilton), and sought to outfit our apartments to equally high, luxurious standards.

Tom Sipas purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Tom Sipas chose Inner City

The house in which the apartment is established is worth of attention: it is a historical monument and it belongs to the Hungary's national heritage. This beautiful apartment house was built in 1860.

On the ground floor a textile monopolist Paul Bramer establish a luxurious textile shop that sustained its status of luxury even in socialist times. Recently the shop was renovated diligently preserving its authenticity and opened the top-designers shop under the name ICONS BY BIZANC (btw few years ago won the prize of the most beautiful shop in Budapest).

Even if you would like to avoid shopping it is worth to sneak in and get a flavour of that time when Budapest witnessed an enormous economical development and luxurious life started to be more and more present in the households of many manufacturers. And it seems that the house could not avoid a bliss of luxury: the first Miss Hungary, Boshke Simon , who won the crown in 1928 elections in Budapest, and next year she became the Miss of Europe in Paris was a resident of this house for decades as she married to high society person and the owner of textile shop Paul Bramer. They were living in the second-floor apartment just one-floor bellow.

As Boshke Simon was an icon of very popular pre-war Budapest saloon life we hope that our apartment will be an outstanding icon in your travel diary for its style, comfort and aesthetics.

The property was absolutely beautiful/superb and would unreservedly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a fabulous time in Budapest, coupled with our stay at the property. The property had everything you could wish for, every little detail had been thought of. The property is beautifully decorated, has two very large double bedrooms with ensuite facilities - as well as having a very comfortable living room and adequate kitchen. The property is also situated in an excellent location for all popular tourist attractions - at the same time because of its situation is quiet and secure without noise of any traffic. I would give this property 5 stars without any doubt and would highly recommend. I will definitely return. Just one last thing, the owner Tom Sipas was extremely helpful and was contactable at all times. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

The perfect host and location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in July/August 2018 and had a fantastic time. We absolutely loved Budapest and this was the perfect base from which to explore this beautiful city. Located just off Vaci Utca, a couple of blocks from the Danube and roughly mid-way between the market and the basilica, the apartment was so central to all of our sightseeing in the city. We loved the apartment - spotlessly clean, well appointed and very comfortable. We would wholeheartedly recommend it and look forward to hopefully staying again ourselves in the future. Tom is the perfect host. Warm and welcoming, he met us at the apartment having arranged our transfer from the airport and took the time to show us both the apartment and make some recommendations for things to do and places to eat. We particularly enjoyed the For Sale Pub, opposite the main entrance to the market. Great food and unique atmosphere. Tom was also quick to respond and tremendously helpful when we had questions for him during our stay. Thanks, Tom. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciate your kindness and hospitality.

Great Amenities and Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at this property in July 2018, and from start to finish, our stay was a positive experience. We set up a transfer from the airport through the owner, and it was a simple, door to door process. The property owner met us outside the building and helped us with our luggage. After a quick tour of the apartment and explanation of all the amenities and entry/exit process, the owner, Tom Sipas, provided a map on which he marked out some suggestions for dining and sightseeing. We visited a couple of Tom's dining suggestions, and they were exactly as represented. The warm welcome to Budapest by Tom was very well appreciated!

The apartment was large and comfortable for four people. Along with a comfortable sitting room flanked by two bedrooms, there were two full bathrooms, a complete kitchen, and laundry facilities in the unit. The TV and wifi services worked perfectly. The whole apartment was well appointed, and of special note, the walls were decorated with works of art created by the owner!

The location was also ideal. We were able to walk to most of our activities. The main shopping/dining street was one block away and the Danube riverfront was two blocks away. There was a metro station five minutes from our front door.

Our departure was a simple key-drop, and the transfer to the train station to our next destination, set up by Tom, was trouble-free.

This property helped us feel at home during our short stay in Budapest!

Amazing property, perfect location, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this apartment. The apartment itself was beautiful. Immaculately clean, well appointed, and beautifully decorated. The beds were comfy, there were plentiful plugs, the bathrooms and kitchens were modern and very usable, with showers that had good water pressure and temperature. The apartment was in a PERFECT location in the middle of the action in Pest. Right off of the main drag of Vati Utca, almost everything you want to see is in walking distance, and it is also close to the metro.

Tom, the host, is great. Communication is wonderful. He met us at the property (and was nice enough to wait when our connection was late) and not only walked us through where everything was and how to use everything (washer/dryer, dishwasher, thermostat, etc), but also gave us about 15 minutes worth of tips for things to see and do, and places to eat. He also provided us with a google maps marked with all of his recommendations and comments. SO HELPFUL! He was just so nice. He also arranged for a cab to take us to the airport upon departure.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. I will definitely stay again when I return to Budapest.

THIS is how to experience Budapest

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is special. High ceilings, custom artwork throughout, spacious and in the best building in the very heart of it all. We enjoyed Budapest very much, but some days our highlight was coming home to the peace and solitude of our rental.
