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 and in 2004 we were lucky enough to buy our first apartment there (Elegance in the Heart) which is a very large three bedroom apartment literally a few steps from the most famous shopping street Vaci Utca. We use it as our holiday home and visit several times each year.

Ann Barry purchased this apartment in 2004

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment gave us the creative opportunity to restore and modernize what are truly wonderful spaces which I loved doing. They also provided a place to hang my art, which is my other hobby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apt is huge and bright and as the name suggests so elegant. It was extremely comfortable and warm no matter what room you were in. There was sleeping area's for 10 people and three bathrooms. Ceilings tall and bright and so clean. It was an absolute pleasure to stay in and I will definitely be staying there again ...Ladyluck, Dublin, Ireland

I was surprised by how large the apartment was. It

was also very elegant, bright and comfortable.

It was great to be able to walk out and be in the

centre of everything. This gave it a real holiday


Because the windows faced onto Haris Koz, it was much

quieter than I had imagined it would be. A lovely

apartment. It gave our holiday a touch of luxury....Kenneth

We could not believe the size and location of the apartment which easily accommodated us all. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The design meant that you didn't have to disturb other people to get to the kitchen or bathrooms in the morning...Nicola, Le

Lovely apartment, no A/C, with windows open it was too noisy for good sleep.

  • 3 of 5

We were attracted to this property due to it being able to hold our large family and closeness to Váci Ut. In retrospect, with no A/C we had to keep the windows open all night to get air flowing. However, the windows look out on a street with outdoor seating for a couple of restaurants. Even though we were a couple of floors above the restaurants themselves, the customer noise from the restaurants and the noise from the restaurants closing at 3am was enough to get little sleep. If your group stays out late, then this will not be an issue for you. The beds were great, the linens were nice, and the kitchen, baths and living space were excellent. But for the noise from the restaurants we would have given this property 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you Carl for your review. I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed the apartment itself and would give the facilities we provide five stars. The double leaf / twin windows are very efficient in excluding noise when closed. However we do appreciate that your stay was during Europe's heat wave this year and we accept that our circulating fans would be insufficient in dealing with such exceptional temperatures for Budapest. We will certainly carefully consider AC for future years. Unfortunately as well your visit coincided with the peak festival time in Budapest.

Very spacious apartment in heart of city centre

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a few colleagues were staying in Budapest for a conference. This was a perfect choice for our accommodation. We were close to all things in the city which made going out in the evenings easy and there was plenty of space to relax when we were at home. I highly recommend this place if you're thinking of coming to Budapest. The guest service from the owner was amazing!

Great location. Great place

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment close to everything. Easy walk to the Danube and the Rudas baths (highly recommended). We opted for airport pick up but it would have been very easy to take the 100E bus from right outside the arrival area. It stops at an area that is an easy walk to the place.

The common rooms are big and spacious. One of the bedrooms is without windows and easy to oversleep in (if you have any jet lag). The apt. was very clean and the water pressure is great (something I always appreciate). The windows are double paned so keep any noise out. We don't mind a little noise and slept with the windows thrown open and the air flowing through. Wonderful. Kitchen has everything you need.

We really enjoyed our stay/

Great location, beautiful HUGE apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Budapest, and the apartment was lovely. We had a group of 4, but the apartment could easily and comfortably house 8. The location was spectacular, communication with Ann was really impressive. In her welcome email she included a ton of really valuable information,, and even pre-arranged our transport to/from the airport.

All accommodations here were above and beyond. Our family really loved it, and it was large enough we all had our own private areas which made for an even better traveling experience.

I highly recommend.

Car: not necessary


Franz Liszt airport 1, 2/A and 2/B are about 15km away. There is a minibus service from the airport. If you are arriving by car, my agent Daniel will advise you on best car parking lots in city centre.The apartment is also easily accessible by public transportation. Passengers are taken by a direct bus service (bus 200) to Köbánya-Kispest metro terminal. By this blue line (3) Metro from Köbánya-Kispe to Ferenciek Terre which is less than 5 mins walk from the apartment.


Situated in the most central and popular part of downtown, pedestrianized 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:

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.

The taxi should cost between 6,000 and 7,000 forints which is about 22 or 23 euro. It takes about 20 or 25 minutes to reach the city centre.

If preferred, my agent will collect for 35 euro. His pick up and return fare is 55 euro for up to 4 passengers. Extra passengers 5 euro per person per trip extra. His car can take 8 passengers.

If there is no arrival booking on your departure day, you can leave any time. If however there is an arrival you need to be packed by 11 am. Your luggage can be stored in the hall of the apartment until it is time for you to leave for the airport.

The availability calendar is maintained up- to-date.

Special events and a period including New Year's eve may cost a little extra.
