Overview

About the property

Large and elegant apartment in the heart of the city, fully equipped.

Large 3 bedroom apt in central Budapest

On the second floor of a 19th century building, this bright and quiet apartment offers space and comfort for up to 7 people.

The apartment was fully renovated in 2010, keeping the original period doors and windows, and is equipped with many comforts, including free wifi and a plasma TV with satellite channels.

There's NO elevator in the building.

There are three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and dining room. In the master bedroom there is a convertible single sofa-bed that can comfortably host a seventh person.

The kitchen is fully equipped (oven, microwave oven, boiler, coffee makes, toaster, dishwasher, etc..).

There is a small, lovely park right in front of the building, with a children’s play area.

The apartment is conveniently located in the heart of Budapest, near Kalvin Ter. The Raday utca, with its many restaurants, design shops and coffee shops, is across the street.

A supermarket is 30 meters away, open 7/21.

The area is extremely well serviced by the public transport system, and the Danube River is just a few minutes’ walk, two blocks away.

The Great Market Hall, the Gellert Thermal Bath and the National Museum are close as well, while The Museum of Applied Art is on the very same street.

The house offers the comfort of a spacious and quiet place where to return after a long day touristing around, or after a nice dinner in one of the many good restaurants nearby!

Please remember that this is my real home and it's in a private building, don't do anything you wouldn't do in your own home. So far I've been lucky enough to have had fantastic guests! Nevertheless, I must give notice that any bad behaviour, drunkenness and/or disturbance to neighbours will result in immediate eviction from the premises.

I live in the same building, and I'm usually in charge for check-in and check-out procedures, as well as to provide guests information and help. However, it may happen that a house manager could replace me when I'm traveling. He's a long term partner in managing the house, and always up for new tips and tricks about the city!

The apartment is for the exclusive use of checked-in guests: no other person is allowed to remain overnight.

Final cleaning is included in the given quotation: extra cleaning, at the cost of 30,00 euros, can be arranged with the house manager.

I speak English and Italian; the house manager, who sometimes takes in charge on my behalf, speaks English, French and Hungarian. We will help you with any house-related necessity during your stay.

A deposit is not requested; however, please note that 100,00 euros will be charged for loss of key set, in order to replace all secure locks and keys.

Check-in is after 4pm, check-out before 11am.

When possible we are flexible with this schedule (if apartment is not booked the very same day), but we can communicate this flexibility only few days before your arrival.

You can leave baggage in-house during check-in/out day cleaning hours.

Linen and towels are provided.

If you are traveling by car: the city parking area is free during week-ends and requires payment on week days. Budapest has a very good and affordable public transport system, and you probably won't need use of a car. I suggest you take advantage of patrolled garages, of which there are two very close to the building (one in the very same street, one block away). The approximate cost is 10/15 euros a day.

About Roberto

I'm an Italian borne and grew up in Rome. I traveled a lot in my life, and I got for the very first time in Budapest in 2007, almost by casualty. I felt immediately in love with the place, and I caressed the dream to relocate; which I did in 2013. It's really an amazing city !!

Roberto purchased this apartment in 2008

Thumbs-up!!! What a flat and what a host!! It doesn't get better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by thanking you, Roberto, for being such an awesome host and treating us so well. We couldn't have possibly spent a better time in Budapest, and the only thing we regret is that it was barely three days - way too short to appreciate and enjoy all the wonderful sites and places in this pearl of Europe, let alone dig into the collection of Stephen King novels at the shelves;-) Hopefully, you stay in Budapest at least a few more years so once we're done with the rest of Europe we can meet once again!

For the information of all the other tourists wishing to spend time in Budapest - only at this place. The man is a display of professionalism from start to finish. From the first enquiry all the way to our departure Roberto was super responsive, helped us to plan all aspects of our visit and made the stay a true pleasure. The flat is an essence of Budapest. You shall not be disappointed.

All utilities and utensils you might possibly need, you'll find there, and if not I'm sure Roberto would be there to help you out.

Any problems resolved on the spot - the coffee maker broke down. In fact it was not a big problem due to two spare Italian espresso makers in the cupboard. Still, the same day we had a quality brand new Zanussi delivered and installed together with a note of apology accompanied by a truly delicious cake awaiting us in the fridge upon our arrival from the city sight-seeing trip!

To sum up, if Budapest than only Roberto's flat. Period.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is so lovely and comfortable with its high ceilings, wood floors, and tasteful decorations. The neighborhood felt safe even after dark. The bedroom facing the courtyard was very quiet and I slept very well even though I'm a light sleeper. The other two bedrooms face the street but the noise did not disturb my other family members. The apartment is within a five minute walk to the metro station or a 6-minute walk to a main bus stop. Many wonderful restaurants and the grocery store are also just a 5 to 10 minutes away by foot. The apartment is two full flights of stairs up but is manageable. The apartment was very clean and Robert provided everything we could need during our stay. Robert himself was a highlight of our stay in Budapest as he was so kind, gentle, and thoughtful as well as great company. We feel fortunate to have stayed in this lovely flat.

Owner's Response: Kathleen, Maya, and Jim are such lovely persons. They brought in their smiles and positive energies since they stepped in the flat. It was a pleasure to host them and a privilege to spend time with them. I would highly recommend them to any other owner - you'll be lucky to have this lovely and friendly family staying at your place!

It doesn't get much better than this!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a 3 night stay in Roberto's apartment. We were a party of 3 ladies in our 50's/60's. Firstly what a great host! From my first enquiry all communication was easy and answered very promptly. Roberto could not have done more to aid the booking process. When we arrived Roberto met us and we were so lucky to stay in an apartment belonging to such a friendly, helpful and gracious gentleman.

Secondly the apartment itself! What can I say....it is such a beautiful place. Vert tastefully decorated with beautiful art work, fantastically equipped and spotlessly clean. But comfortable and homely too. The situation is great....near the river and a stones throw from nice restaurants, bars and cafes.

Lastly Budapest is a fantastic city. I wish we had stayed longer as we hardly touched the surface. A good tip of Roberto's is to walk around but don't forget to look up. Such wonderful architecture.

So, in brief, don't hesitate to book this apartment. You won't regret it!

Owner's Response: Being a host becomes an easy job when guests like Wendy show up! She stayed over with friends - as nice as well. It was easy to communicate with all along the booking process; and overall pleasant to host them once here. I would definitily recommend Wendy to any owner, don't miss the chance to host such a extraodinary gentle lady! Cherry on the pie, the flat was left spotless at check-out.

Owner's Response: What a privilege to host the Gordon family! They are nice, friendly, attentive, relaxed; easy to communicate with, during the booking process as well as during their stay: Plus, it was such a pleasure to talk with them and exchange ideas and opinions. As a cherry on the pie, the flat was left spotless at check-out. I would definitively recommend this lovely family to any host. Thank you Mark!

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was charming and well equipped. The location was good, close to restaurants and within easy walking distance of shopping and the central downtown area. Roberto was a fantastic host and had lots of good suggestions about things to see and restaurants to try. We would stay here again in a heart beat.

Kinizsi utca is in the central IX district (Ferencvaros).

On the same Kinizsi street you can find the Museum of Applied Arts. The Raday street, with its many restaurants, is just across. Three blocks away there's the Danube river and its park along the embankment, as well as the 'Great Market Hall', while to get to the famous and beautiful Gellert Baths you only have to cross the river walking on the Liberty Bridge. The new-gothic Church of the Parish of Ferencvaros, in Bakats Ter, is a couple a minutes away from the Kinizsi utca.
