About This Listing
Staying in our Quad Room you will have all the facilities like you would be renting an apartment but for a lot less. The room is located in the heart of the city and the apartment is equipped with everything you might need while you are in Budapest!
The Private Quad Room in our Astoria Residence Apartment can accommodate 1, 2, 3 or 4 persons as it has a double bed and two single beds. It is very conveniently located next to Astoria station in front of Europe's biggest Synagogue.
We have 24 hours check in and check out, so no problem with late arrivals or early leavings. We can even pick you up or drive you back to the airport if you wish (29 EUR/car).
Renting the private room, you will have your own lockable room and you will be sharing the fully equipped kitchen and the bathroom with two other rooms.
If there are guests in both rooms, we come and clean the common areas everyday, and if you wish your room too. So even though you are sharing the bathroom and the kitchen, you will have it clean everyday.

The first and most important fact about us is that we are a local family from Budapest: 3 Brothers and 1 Sister and their Mother, and we are not an agency or someone sitting in another country doing AirBnB through an agency, this gives us the chance to give you more attention from your first email until we bring you back to the airport*. We are all Hungarians from Budapest who have been always living here so we know the city very well and have presented our lovely country to many-many visitors in the past decade.
We started doing AirBnB when it did not even exist, I was 16 back in 2001 when I started renting out rooms and apartments to travelers. We had many-many happy travelers and even more stories until we set up (website hidden) and kept on growing.

Upon arrival we will wait for you in the apartment to check in, or at the airport if you wish to be picked up at the airport.
Check in is from 12.00, but if you arrive earlier than that and there are no guests in the room/apartment the night before, then we can do check ins as early as 6.00AM already. If there are guests, we recommend you to go to a bath house and at 12.00 you can come and check in to the apartment.
Check out is at 11.00 but by then you just have to pack your luggage so we can start cleaning and you can store the luggage in the apartment longer. If there is no arrival the day you check in you can even use the apartment until the you leave.
Maybe the best host I have ever know. They are "only" a family that rent some flats, but they do it in a professional way without losing the personal contact. They explain everything very good in their offer, by email and when you arrive to the flat. You will have all the information to avoid any problem and will organize your visit to Budapest.
And the most important: the room is lovely, everything in the flat is perfect, location is the best and price is really low.
Peter and his friend who made check-in were very friendly and helpful. The apartment is nice, clear and quiet, and corresponds to the description. The great was that it is very close to the sightseeings, supermarket, metro station. Highly recommend.
We loved staying here! The location was amazing and very central. I was traveling with a friend and we both felt so comfortable and really enjoyed the room. When we first got there, Peter showed us a bunch of Budapest hot spots on a map and that was super helpful. Additionally, he was very easy to reach and helped us make dinner reservations while we were there. All in all, a wonderful experience!!
Peter was very welcoming and friendly. Gave us a very detailed breakdown of the city as well as food recommendations. very helpful
We had a great stay at Peter's flat. Peter's friend Daniel is very friendly and recommended us many sight spots and very good restaurants. The flat has a perfect location and is equipped with every thing we need, but the room is a little small for 4 people.
Hi Xuequing, thank you very much for your stay! We are glad that the our recommendations turned out so well, we strive to find the best new places of the city, and then try to advise it to our guests so they can make the most out of their stay! Concerning the room size, of course for 4 people it's more convenient to book two rooms or even a whole apartment. This is always a better (but more costly) option! See you next time!
This Was a Really nice appartment, ver y close to the center of the City and to all nice places in Budapest. It Was really clean and warm. Very nice place
I didn´t stay in the initial apartment that Peter offered on airbnb because he said that too many people in the apartment. I was a little bit disappointed at the beginning. But then I found that the new apartment is also located very central. It is an old building but quite clean and we can use almost all kitchen equipment, tea, coffee, toilet paper, towels, etc. Unfortunately the heater was not working. We already tried to turn it on, but failed. When we were sleeping with blanket, it was not cold. But when we were awake and walking around the apartment, it was very cold.
Dear Tatat, We were glad to host you and your family! As I explained to you before your arrival I advised you that I'd move you to our other apartment beacuse here you would be all alone in the whole apartment, which I considered is a key priority for a family with a young child. I'm glad that you liked the other place and you see it was as central as Astoria Residence! I am very sorry that you felt cold in the apartment. The heating was, by default, set to 20 degrees celsius, which is considered normal, but if you were feeling cold, you should have messaged or called me and we would have showed you how to turn it up to a higher temeperature... Good communication is vital for us to be able to fully satisfy our guests! :)
