Notice Board

“Wonderful apartment in Budapest - Recently spent 5 days in Budapest as this wonderful location. We walked almost every where and fell in love with this glorious city. The apartment was perfect for us in every way. Hope to return one day. Thank you, thank you.

Wendy - February 2020

“Eine sehr angenehme Wohnung zentral gelegen. Geschmackvoll eigerichtet, gut ausgerüstet, gut instand gehalten und sauber und ruhig. Wir werden sie wieder mieten.

Thomas - September 2019

“Awesome apartment Everything about this apartment was great. Looks exactly like it does in the photos, very clean and quiet but in a great location near the river. Check in and check out was a breeze, and as noone was due to arrive immediately after us, we were allowed to leave our bags so we could have a last little explore before catching our return flight. I'd highly recommend!!

Luan - September 2019

“One of the best we have been We spent approximately 6 weeks in this delightful apartment, thoroughly modern ( recently renovated kitchen and bathroom) and well equipped. We found the apartment exceeded our expectations in every way. The high ceilings make this apartment much bigger. Communication with owner and agent was effective and quick. The location is absolutely great, steps from the famous central market, the pedestrian street, restaurants, sights and public transportation. The air conditioning during the heat wave was great and extremely quiet. We visit Budapest very often and we plan to stay again in this apartment: it is the best we have been. .

Henri - August 2019

“Sehr schöne Wohnung, sehr hohe Decken und ist durch die großen Fenster sehr hell. Die Klimaanlage war wirklich Goldwert. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet mit allem was man braucht. Bad und Wohnraum sind gepflegt und ausreichend groß. Bett und Couch waren bequem und der Fernseher top. Die Lage hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Sowohl die großen Einkaufsstraßen als auch das jüdische Viertel sind nicht weit. Auch die Lage fast direkt an der Donau ist super.

Annika -August 2019

“Perfekt Es hat wirklich alles gepasst. Die Wohnung war sauber, die Übergabe problemlos, die Lage sehr zentral und ruhig. Besser geht es nicht. Wir waren sehr zufrieden.

Angela - July 2019

“Wonderful stay by the Danube The apartment was clean, nicely furnished and had everything we needed. We were close to the Danube, and all of the areas in Budapest we wanted to visit. This was a lovely apartment and a fabulous location. We were delighted with our vacation stay.

Jayson - July 2019

“Really Terrific We stayed here for a month, and we felt right at home. Everything about the apartment was great, the location could not have been better for us, and Joanne was the best. Already thinking about coming back and staying in this apartment again.

Jay - June 2019

“Great location Tony and Joanne were perfect hosts. Their directions to the apartment were concise. The ease of access, check in and check out couldn't have been better. They stayed in contact with us the whole trip. Loved our stay.

Don - April 2019

“A Home Away from Home in the Best Setting Initial instructions by the owners to get the regulated taxis from the airport meant a quick and easy journey, as was the process of picking up our keys at the apartment. We were impressed by the attractive and authentic building, especially in the bright sunshine. It's evident that the neighbours take pride in where they live. The apartments interior was clean, bright and makes really good use of the space, very comfortable bed and sofa, excellent tv and plenty of storage. We particularly appreciated the range of glasses in the cupboard to try our newly bought Hungarian wine and Palinka! All of this made for a really pleasant and relaxing place to return to after a long day exploring. The location was excellent! Right beside Liberation Bridge making it easy to get back to but walking distance (if you're happy to walk)to all districts. Very convenient to transport links. A particular draw is the massive (and beautiful) market, full of fresh produce and lovely crafts...and an Aldi in the basement! Overall, there isn't one thing we would have change apart from having more time to investigate stunning Budapest. We definitely plan on returning and would be delighted to stay in this accommodation again. Thank you for making this such a wonderful and effortless holiday! ~Aine and Peter~

The appartment was in a perfect location, a stones throw from the Danube. Close to the food market, metro etc. we felt very centrally located, yet it was a quiet peaceful appartment. We had everything we needed there, and the shower was really powerful, which was appreciated. We hope to go again to this appartment, as it was just perfect.”

We were more then impressed Joanne who was in regular contact with us leading up to our stay and was more then happy to answer any questions we had. The location is fantastic with all the sites within walking distance. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!”

Tripadvisor review, October 2013

“This apartment is bright and airy and has everything you would want for a comfortable stay in Budapest. It’s excellent location puts the Inner City district in easy walking distance with Vaci Utca (one of the main shopping and eating streets) and the fantastically grand Market just minutes away. Just strolling down endless small streets leads to all manner of pleasant surprises. I can happily recommend to all.”

James – October 2013

“Location is perfect and Budapest is just the best city in central Europe to visit beside Prague.”

Tripadvisor review, September 2013

“A very nice apartment, very centrally located. Very nice was that there was air conditioning and window blinds, so it was pretty cool despite the heat outside.”

Dolf – August 2013

“A cosy haven in an excellent Location. We got excellent information from Joanne and Tony, they went out of their way to help us and answered everything we needed to know they were marvelous. Our arrival was welcoming and we got very good service from the agents. The apartment is spacious, secure, had wi-fi, dvd plasma tv, aircon, and most useful a washing machine and lovely modern kitchen microwave etc. We were pleased to have an elavator,the location is so convienient close to transport, the lovely market,close to the liberty bridge and Danube.we enjoyed our stay there,close to everything.Decent wardrobe for clothes etc. loved the shutters…was peaceful at night.we were happy there,,, just one thing the bed was rather low…especially for seniors. other than that we really enjoyed our stay there…there were books to read and dvds to watch. many thanks to Joanne and Tony.”

Tripadvisor review, May 2013

“We had a very nice holiday in Budapest. The apartment looks just like the pictures. The location is almost perfect for exploring the city on foot or by public transport. Only a few steps away from the river and close to the pedestrian area with shops and numerous restaurants.We would definitely recommend it to our friends. P.S. We found 6 towels for 2 people fully sufficient. ;)”

Franziska – May 2013

“Cosy apartment in a historic location, extremely rrustig and ideal location for visiting the city. Comfortable bathroom and kitchen. Highly recommended.”

Raphael – April 2013

“We’d stayed in Budapest before, in what I thought was a more central location – but this was perfect, being so close to the river and the baths at Hotel Gellert and Rudas. The nearby 19th-century food market (the city’s largest) was a godsend for stocking up over the Xmas break, and a very useful radial tram route runs just outside. It was also good – as always – to stay in a traditional toasty warm central-European apartment with snow blanketing the streets outside!”

Ian, December 2012

“wonderful place to have a rest after a long day walking. perfect!”

Alexandre, October 2012

Cecilia, September 2012

“Great location for exploring the city. Staying in an apartment gives you a taste of how the locals live. Apartment clean and comfortable, providing all the basics needed for a stay. Lots of information and suggestions available to guests since staff is not on site. Market, shopping and sites within walking distance. This was the first apartment I’d ever booked online for a trip. I was pleasantly surprised with the ease of booking. The apartment exceeded my expectations.”

Tripadvisor review, September 2012

“Fantastic! – My boyfriend and I were looking for a reasonably priced, but nice place to stay in Budapest and luckily stumbled across this apartment on Trip advisor. It was everything we hoped for and more. It was in a great location, we could walk everywhere and the apartment itself was lovely. I was worried that it was going to be quite small but in fact was more than big enough for us! The air conditioning was very useful aswell! I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a short stay in Budapest!”

Tripadvisor review, August 2012
