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 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

Stylish , well equipped apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Roberto's apartment. He was both welcoming and helpful. The apartment was very clean and well equipped, with some interesting art. There is a Supermarket opposite, the tube and tram within easy walking distance. We found a long street of good restaurants and bars just round the corner. There is museum at the end of the road but basically it is a residential area, with an authentic feel - a great base to explore the city from.

Owner's Response: Susan, Ian, and their sons are just the perfect guests! Friendly, nice, fun, correct, overall gentle... name a good quality, they have it. Oh, yes, brave: they faced the hottest days of the year in Budapest with heroic impetus! :-) At check-out, the flat was left spotless. I would certainly recommend this lovely family to any owner and I'm looking forward to hosting them here again in the future.

Fab time

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment fully equipped as stated. Ricardo is an excellent host nothing was to much trouble, he advised us on places to visit and where to eat taxis to and from airport. We arrived late and he had left us a welcome pack which was much appreciated. Well done Ricardo from seven Cardiff ladies

Great stay in a lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Roberto is a charming and thoughtful host, who made our stay in his lovely apartment perfect. He was very welcoming and succeeded in making this a home from home for us. Everything you could need is there and the information he gave us, both before our arrival, and in the apartment itself, meant we found our way around very easily. The building is a lovely, period property and the apartment has high ceilings, large windows and an inner courtyard outside the door. It is easy to walk to the riverside and get the tram into town, or go a couple of blocks in the other direction to get the metro. We loved Budapest and would like to return in the future; we would be more than happy to return to Roberto's apartment when we do.

What a fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful first trip to Budapest, and this was the perfect place to stay. The apartment is beautiful! The rooms are large and thoughtfully furnished, the kitchen is well-appointed, and the park view from the front windows is lovely. Roberto is an excellent host, very welcoming, kind and helpful. We were so comfortable in this apartment, and found it to be in such a convenient city location for sightseeing, dining and shopping. We hope to visit Budapest again, and would love to stay here!

A wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Roberto met us at the door of his beautiful apartment. It was exactly as it is represented on the VRBO website. Spacious, high-ceilings, well furnished. Everything you could want during your stay in Budapest. It is close to the metro and in walking distance to downtown. roberto could not have been a more gracious host.

Excellent apartment in a lovely city

  • 5 of 5

The property was spacious, warm, clean & well equipped with everything you need. Roberto is an excellent host, most welcoming & gave us lots of tips where to visit & what to see.

We arrived late, but Roberto had supplied us with bread, jam, tea, coffee, milk & fruit - a lovely gesture & just what we needed.

The apartment is well located & we walked everywhere! We managed to do about 15 miles in two days & managed to see the top 10 sites to visit. Would I recommend this apartment yes & would I stay again most definitely.

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.
