“Excellent location and views, spacious and homey”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Pros: Easy booking with Ann, pickup at airport and keys given easy even at midnight arrival. Large, airy apartment with excellent location and fabulous views of Danube river, Elizabeth bridge and Castle hill behind the bridge to the right. Gellert Hill directly across river. Fully stocked kitchen, ref, microwave, stovetop and 4 person dining room set. Clean and spacious bathroom with shower only.

Bedroom has two double beds stuck together that although comfy, would separate at the middle easily with movement. Me, wife and 5 yr old slept here and had to be conscious about this split in middle with the kid. One quibble was it was a bit dusty under this bed setup and wood tiles made for very creaky floors inside this room. Ample storage space and lighting. Good centralized heating and cooling inside whole apartment. Very quiet, hardly heard any neighbors movements at all during our 8 nights stay here. Wifi works very well but TV only carried local Hungarian channels. Sofa bed in the living room was small and not comfy at all with an itchy fabric and was setup wherein the pillows come down to form part of the bed while the bottom wood frame is pulled forward to make it a double sized bed-- pillows come apart when sleeping on it (my 10 yr old was not very comfortable sleeping on this sofa bed). This sofa bed really needs to be changed in my opinion.

Front of building is very dark at night although facing a busy street and overall very safe neighborhood even coming home late with small kids. Two entrances into building front and back, both dark at night. Once inside the main door, light switch is further up the foyer on left so be sure to have your phone flashlight ready to see your way in. One lift up a few steps was very small and slow but worked for this building and our stay. Took it going up and walked back down instead most times.

Excellent neighborhood, convenience store right downstairs around the corner, groceries across the street not far at all, truly centrally located with tram no. 2 right in front of building. Overall, despite the small bed quirks, enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend this place when in Budapest. It is on the Pest side by the way right beside the Elizabeth bridge facing the river and Gellert Hill. Bupapest is a beautiful city and we really enjoyed our visit partly because of this apartment and its location.

“Excellent way to see Budapest”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The Danube River view is just amazing from this apartment. It is also so convenient, in the centre of the city... All the city highlights within easy walking distance, plus the number 2 tram outside the main door. The apartment is light and airy, modern and has all you need. It feels safe and is quiet above the road with good double glazing. Heating is efficient (needed in the Budapest winter). It has 2 single beds which are very comfortable. We spent a week and were not disappointed. Arrangements for airport pick-up and return were very convenient and reassuring. The owner is Irish and is extremely helpful.

Perfect situation, lovely apartment, spectacular view, excellent welcome, good info pack when you book and easy transfer to/from airport. You won't do better.

(avoid the costly and very infrequent WIZZ airport transfer, public transport is dead cheap, dead easy and very frequent)

“You will end up with far too many photos of the magnificent view out of the window!”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I can’t really add to previous reviews – I just have to agree! The view of the castle etc is magnificent and the apartment us, if anything, nicer that the photos can show. A fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bedroom, bathroom with a good shower…I could go on! The Internet worked without a problem and the place was always warm (In October) the beautiful parquet floor always seemed warm.
We were told that the lift had recently been replaced –although there were a couple of hiccups when it was out of service for a few hours. Although the apartment is on the 4th floor it seems a bit further when you are walking! It is an interesting old building though. If you want to do the hop on hop off bus tour they start just round the corner and the boat trips also start from close to the apartment. I will certainly recommend this apartment to any of my friends who visit Budapest.

There is also a 2nd lift/elevator in the house. It's a bit further from the apartment door but it can be useful to know about it.

“Increadible Location”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Traveling to Budapest on a River Cruise, we wanted a rental as a base for a two week stay in the city. I found this spot and was attracted by the view with the cruise ships in it. After researching the location I decided it was perfect. And it really was!

We were able to walk to the apartment from the cruise ship, and were met by the agent who showed us around. He also gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation.

it would be difficult to find a more ideal location for a stay in Budapest. The only place we could not walk to was Memento Park, and even there was a simple transit ride. Every day we found other attractions to walk to. The central Market was only a few blocks away and almost anything you need is available there. As well the pedestrian shopping streets are a few minutes away.

The apartment is well equipped and modernized with plenty of plugs and high-speed internet. As a Blogger, this was ideal for me. There is a modern stove, dishwasher microwave and washing machine. Although it was October we never even had to turn the heat on due to the efficient new windows.

You do not even need a night light, as the light from the Liberty Monument on the hill across the river shines down on the apartment. It was wonderful to sit in the window and watch the sun set across the river and the lights on the bridges and buildings come on at night.

This is an ideal location for anyone wishing to visit Budapest, and if you are coming in on a river cruise and want to spent additional time in Budapest this is a perfect spot to stay.
