The deal of the winter on airbnb in Budapest! 26 euro a night for a private apartment in the heart of the heart of the city!. Renovated and furnished in May 2013, situated in Hegedü street.The street itself is a short and quiet one situated just behind the Theresa church.
But the vibes of the hearth of the city is just few seconds away : The apartment is 30 seconds away from Ferenc Lizst ter, the place to be in Budapest for its atmosphere of cafes and restaurants on terraces. It's 30 seconds away from Kiraly Street, and its decoration shops, his trendy bistros with fresh croissant it's 30 seconds away from Nagymezzo street, its theaters and its nightlife. It's one or two minutes away from the Andrassy Boulevard considered as the Champs Elysées of Budapest and 3minutes from the opera. It's also two minutes away from the Oktogon square and the metro station. It's two minutes away from the main tram that bypasses the entire city center.
It is difficult to find a better situated place to stay when you want to discover the city.
The studio is located on the ground floor of a 1900 building in an old courtyard which will be reconstructed in 2015 (and which need to be!.)

This is "The neighborhood" where to stay for a trip in Budapest. The quadrilateral formed by Andrassy Boulevard,
Liszt Ferenc Square, Kiraly street and Nagymezzo street is now the must of the Hungarian capital as both a place for walking, shopping, discovering new bars, restaurants, shops, galleries and cultural centers.
It is probably the only area in the city which being not only devoted to tourism but is frequented by the locals as well by the foreigners and provides you an authentic diversity
of shops, restaurants, historical building which can be compared to the best central areas of London or Paris.
Some of the best new places few meters away from the apartment. The building next to the apartment in the
street is the new cultural center (named iskola) with new events as well as bar, restaurant and exhibition spaces.
Practically in front of the apartment, in the Hegedû street also opened the Black Chocobar a place for gourmands.
20 seconds away from the apartment, the Zsivago bistro
immerses you in the old Russia before the first world war.

Thank you for your attention, enjoy Budapest!
Merci pour votre attention, bon séjour à tous.
Great location. Flat clean and fully equipped. Phillip took all my doubts, and informed me the best tourist spots. Recommend!!
The place was exactly like in the pictures, no bad surprises here. It's a really clean and quiet apartment in the centre of the city near good bars and restaurants.
Before we arrived we got a detailed explanation on how to get there and were given updates by Philippe's friend Orsi (because Philippe was abroad during that time). She also welcomed us in the apartment and pointed out everything we needed to use.
I'd recommend this flat to everyone, it's the best!
Thank you for your message.I am happy you enjoyed the flat and the welcome. I am particulary glad to hear that the soundproofing wall built last month resolved the noise problem and that the flat is quiet now as it used to be before some noisy neighbors.
This place was a really nice and clean spot in Budapest. Really central located, this is the perfect homebase for a citytrip, and you could do almost everything by feet, or if you want, you can also use one of the neraby public trafficstations. Maybe the gasheating can be a little bit disturbing in the night, but you can switch this off, and there is an electrical heating, you can put this one into the bedroom, it is really powerfull enough! Thanks for a pleasant stay in Budapest!
This little flat is in the perfect location! We found anything and everything we wanted close by. Be sure to try Noir Chocolate!
The flat is small, to be sure, but it's a fine place to have your headquarters. Fortunately there is a washing machine and a drying rack, along with laundry soap. If you want to cook, there are pots and pans and plates.
The wifi worked perfectly, and the bed was large enough to fit two comfortably.
New neighbors next door become boisterous at times, and Philippe has told me that he is adding a sound proofing wall in Jan 2015, so that should solve any noise issues.
Although Philippe wasn't there while we stayed, he was very communicative and helped with any questions we had by email.
The apartment is very well located indeed, with a good connection to public transport routes and many central points of interest, easily reachable by foot. The place looks just as advertised, cosy and welcoming (bathroom is small, but functional and clean). The kitchen is very well equipped and we cooked nice meals from local produce found on the market. Unless you're a vegetarian, try the smoked duck breast from the Csengeri utca market next to the Hunyadi Ter.
A better soundproofing solution towards the neighbors would increase the living quality even more.
Philippe has been very nice and helpful when arranging our arrival, providng all the info requested.
Since he was out of town during our stay, his friend Niky showed us the apartment and gave us very good tips about the city (restaurants, pubs, places with a good view on the city and where to take good pictures!!!). She has been very nice.
For what concern the location of the house, it's just perfect, very central and close to everything, expecially pubs, restaurants and night life. The house had all the comfort you could think of (it was, warm and very well equipped!)
So, everything was totally worthed. I would highly recommend to stay at Philippe's apartment.
Thank you Philippe and Niki!
Place was exactly as advertised, and Philippe was tremendously helpful in getting us oriented and offering tips. He is an excellent host, providing an affordable and incredibly convenient home base for exploring Budapest. I am tremendously happy.
