About this listing
Perfect location! Stroll out in any direction and you're right there, drinking in the beauty of Budapest, looking down over the Danube, hearing a concert in St Matthias, having a chocolate cake in the 19th Century Ruszwurm cafe, browsing antiques, art galleries, the catacombs, taking the funicular- falling in love!
The sitting with mezzanine, high ceilings, full of light and 2 comfortable sofas one of which is a sofa bed
This is a Romantic, light and comfortable flat in a 19th Century solid building in the perfect location - right in the privileged Castle area. .
It is a few steps from the most magical places in Budapest: the Matyas Cathedral, the Fishermen's Bastion and the panorama over the Danube. There are many museums within a short walk: for example, the museum of the History of Budapest and the Bartok museum as well as the Wine Museum - with tastings; you will find also the Catacombs (when you get to the centre you will find a wine fountain!), the Hospital in the Rock (used during WWII) and the Art Gallery in the Hapsburg Palace as well as many little art galleries in courtyards.
You can stroll everywhere in this area - cars are by permit only, so it is safe and peaceful. To get to other parts of Budapest there are 3 little buses which circulate every few minutes. One takes you to the metro and trams (in 4 minutes) and the other two across the Chain bridge to Pest (8 minutes). Or you can take the funicular railway down to the Danube.
The castle area has always been a civilized cultured area. The cafes, wine bars and restaurants in the streets of the Castle area are all of a high standard and you can find everything from inexpensive and homely Hungarian food to the finest cuisine Budapest has to offer.
The flat has a large living room with possibly the world's most comfortable sofa, an additional double sofa bed and a kitchen area with pretty plates and mugs ceramic hob, microwave and washing machine. There is a downstairs double bedroom and up the spiral stairs is a mezzanine with another double bed.
There is a self-service general shop nearby where you can find fresh fruit and salads as well as health foods, fine chocolates and jam, fresh rolls and coffee for your breakfast. The upper floor is dedicated to a sophisticated range of Hungarian wines and palinkas (the Hungarian brandy which has many varieties). There is a little bakery down a passage by the flat if you would like fresh cherry strudel or potato scones before you set out to explore.
There are also a number of craft shops, a folk market and places to find antique glass and jewellery.
Ten minutes walk takes you to where you can take an ON-OFF tour bus which will orient you to the whole of Budapest, including a boat trip down the Danube.
The space is ideal for a romantic couple break, a business retreat or a small family.
Agnes is Hungarian born and is delighted to make sure that you have a lovely time.
Interaction with Guests
As you wish - just a phone call away.
Public transport is fantastic. Walk out of the flat and 200m away is the stop for the 3 castle buses. One takes you via a breathtaking panorama to the chain bridge and drops you in Pest centre (Deák Tér) (about 8 minutes). The other 2 take you to Szel Kalman ter from where you can take the metro, or the number 4 and 6 trams. These both circle the city centre so they can be used for informal 'hop on' 'hop off' sightseeing. Szel Kalman ter itself has a big shopping centre (Mammut) as well as cheaper restaurants. It leads onto Margit körút which has a range of non touristy shops - shoes, textiles, household goods. Just before the Margit bridge, crossing to Pest, is the eat as much as you can Trofea grill, which is really great value and allows you to sample a wide range of Magyar cuisine.
You are welcome to eat and drink what you find and it is appreciated if you can leave something nice for the next guests! If you break something perhaps you would be kind enough to replace it.
You are asked to turn off all the lights and the hob when leaving the flat.
Krizstina, Agnes' friend met us at the apartment, she was so bubbly & friendly, a very nice welcome. She also let us leave our bags at the apartment as we arrived early in the morning; the shops weren't open either as it was a Sunday but she had bought breakfast supplies for us!! The apartment was in such a cool location, we were incredibly happy with the apartment & the location, it was wonderful!! The bus & tram is very easy to catch from the apartment so there were no issues in getting around. The local area has wonderful cafes & great sights. Everything was better than we thought it would be!! Communication was great & there is a book with tips from previous guests which is really cool to have. We would recommend this apartment to anybody & would love to stay again if in Budapest again. Thank you Agnes & Krisztina
Great apartment in a fantastic neighborhood. The #16 bus to the other end of Buda and to Pest was close by and frequent. The flat was fully equipped, tastefully decorated, spacious and comfortable. Both Agnes ad Krisztina were very helpful with questions or problems. We would love to stay here again if coming to Budapest.
This house is in perfect location! even with Very huge room and the kitchen have everythings. We have a very good days in budapest with sunny days. thank for your kindness. I recommend this house to my friends
Поекрасная квартира в самом центре исторического места! Весь Будапешт перед вами с вершины Будайского холма! Удивительно жить в таком месте, а не просто приходить сюда на экскурсии! Конечно кругом полно мест где вкусная еда/кофе/пироженые (вполне нормальные цены-неожиданно для такого места!. )Хотя в Будапеште вообще вкусно и недорого! За углом супермаркет-можно есть дома-кухня удобная!Недели конечно очень мало для Будапешта!
Очень ответственные Агнесс и Кристина, в квартире уютно чисто, комфортно, все работает, забота о гостях чувствуется в даже в мелочах. Цена очень приятная для такого места , мы очень довольны и рекомендуем пожить здесь если вы собрались в Будапешт!
