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.

Emplacement parfait au centre-ville
Philippe nous a donné plusieurs informations tres utile quon ne retrouve pas dans un guide touristique
Appartement douillet et malgre l'emplacement tranquille
Philippe was a wonderful host. We stayed at his place for 3 nights and the apartment was clean, cosy and big enough for 2 people. It's located perfectly in the center so that you can explore everything by foot.
Philippe recommended some places to see and some restaurants to go which turned out to be super nice and delicious.
Thank you for hosting us and we would love to book it again once we are coming back to beautiful prague!!!
Philip nous a très bien accueilli, nous a conseillé des restaurants très bons et des idées de choses à faire à Budapest. L'appartement quant à lui est très agréable, fonctionnel, propre et très bien situé avec un excellent rapport qualité prix. Nous avons été très satisfaits et vous conseillons cette location !
We had a weeks summer vacation in Budapest and lived at Phillippe's place. The place was very clean and tidy when we arrived and had everything we needed for the week. Phillip was very kind and welcomed us and used almost an hour of his time on informing us of the transportation system and recommending different places to see and go to eat. Every one of his recommendations were spot on what we were looking for and we really did enjoy them all. So all in all we really liked the place and can highly recommend it to others!
Thank you Matias,
It's my pleasure to speak about the city to people who want to discover it. To give practical informations is a necessary thing but to provide specific locations depending of the wishes of every host is interesting for me as well, sometimes it gives me as well ideas for myself!
Philippe est très accueillant, il connaît très bien Budapest et peu vous conseiller sur vos besoins.
