We had a fantastic holiday in Budapest, from the moment our elegant hostess Anna met us at the airport until we closed the front door at Helen&Frank slowly and sadly 10 days later. What a lovely hostess and what an absolutely unique and beautiful apartment. What other (very affordable) holiday flat has an armchair complete with reading lamp in the bathroom, or an antique silver teapot for everyday use, or the momentos of the glamorous life of Helen & Frank whose apartment it used to be? For all the beautiful art and antique fabrics, furniture and artifacts, it is a bright, welcoming, comfortable, conveniently situated and very functional apartment, lacking for nothing. Will I ever find such and apartment to holiday in again? I doubt it. Thank Helen & Frank, thank you Anna!
We are very glad we chose Helen and Franks guest house for our four day friends trip to Budapest. It made our trip extra special. The apartment was beautifully decorated throughout and full of history and character. There was loads of room, comfy beds and we couldn't have asked for more - we all loved it! We had every thing we needed and Anna the owner was so nice - really charming and helpful. She picked us up at the airport and told us the history of the apartment. The position was great less than 10mins walk to the Parliament and 5mins from no 2 tram that takes you to many of the main sites. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for somewhere with lots of character in the centre of Budapest.
The Helen & Frank Guesthouse has to be one of the most unique places I have ever stayed whilst travelling around the world (and I am very well travelled). It is difficult to put into words the experience you will have here, the way it will make you feel and the thoughts that will occupy your mind. Firstly the photographs do not do the apartment any justice. When you walk in through the front doors, you will feel warmth and experience amazement and wonder. You will be transported back in time, you will feel like a young explorer taking their first history lesson and you will be staying in the most comfortable and luxurious museum in the world.
Once inside, it's hard to leave, but given the amazing location of the apartment, next to the Danube and by the tram links you'll seen be out exploring this amazing city too. Anna the host is fantastic and generally cares about all her guests, I personally can not thank Anna enough for all the help she has offered me during my time in Budapest.
I can guarantee that anyone who stays at Helen & Frank will have an amazing experience and a luxurious stay in this fantastic city.

We stayed at 'Helen and Frank's' and were immediately transported back to another era! The owner Anna met us on arrival and lovingly showed us around the appartment that was full of vintage pieces, tastefully arranged so that it felt like a home but not to the point that we felt like we were intruding. The sitting room was comfortable, as were the bedrooms - each with it's own design and feel and the larger of the two bathrooms was amazing! My Mum and I loved looking at all of the memorabilia collected by Helen and Frank and it was this personal touch that really made the appartment unique. It was in a good central location, quiet at night, and we felt safe staying there. We would happily stay there again. Thank you Anna for all the personal touches.
