About Ann Barry

My husband Aidan and I live in Co Cork Ireland. We were bowled over by the beauty of Budapest on our first visit.

In 2006 we were delighted to find this real gem that we now call the Danube View apartment.

Ann Barry purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Ann Barry chose Inner City

The Danube View apartment gave us the creative opportunity to restore and modernise a truly wonderful spaces which I loved doing. When thinking of relaxation though it is hard to compete with sitting at that dining table with glass in hand and watching the boats go under those famous Danube bridges. We believe some things are so good they are meant to be shared!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed October 7, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The apartment was just right for a long weekend in Budapest for two people. We loved sitting by the window looking at the view and people watching. Even though it overlooks a busy area you could not hear the traffic and trams at night.

We enjoyed getting picked up by Daniel and getting some inside information from him on Restaurants and things to do and see.



Reviewed September 8, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This was our first trip to Budapest and we loved everything there: people, history, weather, public transport, Danube, food, Daniel's hospitality and his knowledge about the city while picking us up from/to the airport and showing the apartment.

Last but not least we loved the apartment. It made our trip so special. The location was perfect and the view to Danube absolutely fantastic. We sat for hours just by the window and looked the river, Buda castle, Gellert hill, the bridges and cruise ships

Room with a view

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ann for letting us stay in your lovely little apartment. The location of the apartment, overlooking the Danube and yet so close to the centre of town, was a great bonus, plus the fact that it was so easy to get to Buda on the far side of the river. We were able to walk to most of the main attractions but we also enjoyed riding on the Metro which is easy to use. The added benefit was that one of us was able to make use of the free travel for the over 70's, plus discounts on some of the attractions.

The information which Ann supplied before we arrived was invaluable. We particularly enjoyed the night time boat trip which Ann recommended. Thank you for giving us such happy memories of Budapest.

Best Place to Be!

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal location as it was in between Buda and Pest side. Close to everything with a breathtaking view. Property was well maintained and had basic needs. The apartment has an elevator that is helpful when traveling with heavier suitcases. Ann was very helpful in local information and her communication was quick and thorough.

She even has access to drivers that are helpful in allowing myself to travel to another city in Hungary. Abish was a driver, young and knowledgeable and extremely helpful even after I left the apartment.. Elod, the other driver she refers to isn't one I would recommend. He isn't as helpful and really there to drive and collect fees. Does not offer to take the luggage into transferring location and when dropping our group off at the airport denied knowing where the airline was located as well as dropped us off at the arrival instead of departure to save money and time. Elod isn't reflective of Ann nor the property, but a heads up.

Wonderful window on Budapest

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this lovely apartment for a week before a river cruise.

Short review: If you are in Budapest stay in this apartment.

Longer review:

The reservation process was quick and simple. Ann replied quickly and answered our questions promptly. I particularly liked the fact that there were no hidden extras. She arranged for an airport pickup for us with Abris who also showed us the apartment. It was very pleasant to see a sign with our name on it after a long flight.

The apartment is well represented by the pictures. The kitchen is modern and well done. The bathroom is spacious enough and has an on demand water heater so showers are predictable. The bed was comfortable. There were several lovely paintings (you can see them in the photos) which Ann did. Very well done. The place was very clean and quiet.

Our favorite part of the apartment was the window. We spent many hours watching the city and the river. It was interesting to watch the sun set and see the various lights come on as the light level went down. The river was continuously varying. I was surprised by the amount of traffic on it. There were two river cruise boat docks in front of the apartment and they had from none to four ships each. To get to the outer boats, you pass through the others. All the boats dock pointing upstream so you can watch them do a sweeping U turn coming in to dock. The view from the window gave such a wonderful feeling of openness.

The apartment is on an upper floor (4th on the elevator, 5th or so from the windows). There is a convenient elevator or 140 stairs to access the apartment. We tended to walk down and generally take the elevator back up.

The #2 tram (right outside the door) was very useful. We got a weekly travel pass and used the tram and the metro a lot. The tram goes up to parliament and Margaret bridge in one direction and past the Market hall on the other direction. There are many food stores nearby as well as an Aldi in the basement of the central market and a Spar market at the next bridge.

The location could not be better. Gellert Hill and the Rudas baths (highly recommended) were a short walk across the Elizabeth bride. The main touristy street was a couple of blocks away. However, a few blocks in any direction from it, you can see a lot more of the proper flavor of Budapest. The #2 tram gets you to walking distance from almost anywhere.

We were sad to leave the apartment and we will be back.

The view is astoundingly beautiful and the apartment very accomodating!

  • 5 of 5

Ann was great in helping me to book her apartment, and Abris also very kind and welcoming upon my arrival. The apartment was very modern, and good CNN for English speaking people. The bathroom though was a little tight, better towels would be a bonus and it was on the warm side, but with windows open all was fine. Thanks so much Ann and Abris! Janet Snyder, USA

Everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Bring your binoculars to see in more detail the fabulous buildings and boats ... it is a wonderful view!

Clean, airy, and comfortable Bed. We liked being met there by someone so we were shown how to work all the different things, a/c, washer, etc.

Loved the high ceilings! Great location! Would stay there again.

Location was great

  • 5 of 5

The location and the apartment were great. We took the tram outside once to explore the area, but mostly went out on foot since we right in the middle of it all. We left a few bus tickets on the table cause we didn't use our entire book cause everything was so close. The view is amazing and the tour of the apartment and information with Ester before hand was appreciated. Grocery story is just a few blocks down. We stayed here the last leg of our Europe trip so we opted to have Anne's driver pick us up and drop us off for our 6:30 am flight. Both times they were right on time and saved us a lot of stress. When we left the apartment at 4am to catch our flight the entire corridor was dark and we couldn't figure out how to turn the lights on, but we had flashlights on our phone, just a bit odd there were no lights in the hallway outside of the apt. Anne was great and fast with responding to our emails communication and flexible with our arrival times. Will definitely stay again!

Also thank you for giving me the opportunity to clarify the location of the light switch outside the apartment. The light switch is on the wall opposite the apartment door beside the window.

Location

Car: not necessary

Travel:

Franz Liszt airport 1, 2/A and 2/B are about 15km away.

The apartment is relatively easily accessible by public transportation. Passengers are taken by a direct bus service (bus 200) to Köbánya-Kispest metro terminal. It takes 22 minutes from terminal 2 and about 10 minutes from terminal 1 to the Metro terminal.

By this 'blue’line (3) Metro from Köbánya-Kispest you can reach our stop Ferenciek Terre in the City centre, about 5 mins walk from the apartment.

Distances:

Situated in the most central part of downtown Budapest, within walking distance of most tourist attractions.

Car hire is not necessary within the city as public transport facilities are excellent from the apartment.

Further Details:

My agent, collects for 35 euro. His pickup and return fare is 55 euro.

Also there is an official airport taxi cabin directly outside the airport terminal exit door. You request your taxi there and give your destination address. A taxi usually comes immediately.
