Very nice loft in a good location, a block from Opera. Nicely furnished, with amenities. Only drawbacks are 1) somewhat sketchy block and courtyard area, 2) loft means going up/down winding steps. But overall a very good value.

Convenient location, but the area is noisy especially in the middle of night and early mornings which made it impossible to get a good night of sleep.More

About the neighbourhood
The Opera house is a 1 minute walk from this amazing luxury apartment located on a small quiet back street behind the former building of the Hungarian Ballet Institute. A perfect location between the old Budapest on Andrassy ut and the new Budapest on Kiraly utca with all its restaurants, and designer and boutique shops. The Pond is located in the 6th district with a 5-10 minute walk from the River Danube, Basilica of St. Stephen, Deak Ferenc ter, Vaci utca, Oktogon, Terror House, Liszt Memorial House, Great Synagogue and Liszt Ferenc ter with even more restaurants and cafes. Vasvari Pal utca is very much the heart of downtown Budapest with the public transport never more than a 5 minute walk to transport you to any of the sights and attractions Budapest has to offer.
Getting around
Public transport, though excellent is not needed in most cases. The city is so historic with so many things to see on the way and the major sights and attractions never more than a 10-15 minute walk and in many cases even less than that. The apartment is pleasantly located close to various major transport hubs. a two minute walk and you can arrive to the Opera house, where you can collect the famous M1 metro line - the oldest continental metro line. Or at Oktogon, 5 minutes walk, where can join the M1 again or the 4 and 6 tram routes. If you need the M2 or M3 metro line, those too is a short walk to Deak Ferenc Ter.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Budapest Int Airport: 25.0 km
Railway: Nyugati Palyaudvar: 1.0 km
From Budapest Airport you can travel to the apartment by taxi, airport shuttle or public transport - we are happy to provide detailed information on all of these including detailed directions to the apartment should it be needed prior to arrival.

The closest train station, about 10 minutes walk is nyugati palyaudvar. 2 minutes walk for the M1 line at Opera. At Nyugati and Oktogon (5 minutes walk) are stops for the 4 and 6 tram routes. The M2 or M3 metro line, are a short walk to Deak Ferenc Ter

There is plenty of street parking around the apartment and also a car park only a 2-3 minute walk from the apartment.
