My daughter and I had a great stay at this lovely apartment which is full of charm, and located in an excellent part of the city, close to restaurants and public transportation. Ryan and Ron are attentive hosts who make sure that you are comfortable in the city and will help with any touring questions / plans for the day....

We have just returned from a wonderful week-end in Budapest. The city itself is very interesting but what made our trip so special was because we stayed in BudaBaB. Ryan and Ron could not have been more helpful. The B and B is in a fantastic location, really clean and interesting. We were travelling with our 15 year old son...

Ryan and Ron are wonderful hosts (and their apartment is beautiful). They are very friendly and helpful, whether you want suggestions for where to visit or need help navigating the city. As a solo traveler they went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. In addition, their apartment is super close to the metro (so you can take...

We were fortunate to land here on our first visit to Budapest. Ryan and Ron were ideal hosts; they were gracious and very helpful when we had questions, but were not intrusive in the least. The rooms are large, clean, bright: everything others have been saying. The apartment is old school Pest- very authentic, which we loved, and nicely updated...

A lovely, friendly place to stay with gracious hosts. They were very helpful and even got up to wave us goodbye (at a very ungodly hour!). We had the larger room which was very nice. The location was easy to get to from train station and a good point for getting around Budapest. Would definitely recommend.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
