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 Space

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 concept of Budapesting is a new expression on how to visit and become part of this unique city. Staying with us, you get the chance to discover the city with a perspective of a local. Our aim is to give our Guests a comprehensive insight on how life is in Budapest. In addition to that we firmly believe that each and every person is different therefore we take extra care in dealing with the special needs of our Guests. We take attention in getting to know the people we host so we can help them in the way they need it. Staying with Us you'll feel like you are a citizen of Budapest for a couple of days.

Guest Access

All our apartments and private rooms have these facilities:

- a comfortable double bed and an extra single bed, so you can sleep separate too
- a closet to store your clothes while you are in Budapest
- a desk with a chair (the small rooms don't have it)
- a heater and a fan
- of course all the necessary bedding and towels are free of charge
- wireless internet connection
- all the rooms are lockable with key, which you receive upon arrival together with the apartment's keys

- TV with all Hungarian and some English/French/Spanish channels
- fully equipped kitchen: oven, boiler, microwave, toaster, coffee-maker, fridge, freezer, all the necessary things for cooking and dining

Interaction with Guests

Upon arrival you we'll sit down with you with a map and spend about 30 minutes explaining you everything about the city from sights to bars and best value restaurants to try the Hungarian cuisine and many many more tips and advices which will make your stay perfect. You will get the map at the end, where you will have all the important points and sights marked.

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.

  • We actually had our room switched to Kings Court, but it was not a big deal. The location was good, about 20 minutes walk from the river and there were a lot of restaurants. We were met by Peter's sister (I think...) who was very nice and gave us a rundown of what to see and do in Budapest. The apartment was fine. Clean and had all the amenities as advertised. Nothing spectacular or special, but a very good price for a good room.

  • Our stay in Peter's room was nice and perfect; we had got an early entering in a changed appartment because of early arrival; and a late check out because of over-nigth-travel - all very conveniant for us. The kitchen and bathroom and bedroom were very ok for the short of time and we enjoyed it very much to rent 2 bikes from Peter. He cared very well for us and the bikes, we could get at all times a helpfull answer from him. The organisation offered by Peter was the best for us. Thank you very much.

  • po polsku pod spodem!

    What is good - location.
    Although the rest is bad; we had a problem with finding the room, and when I did, there was noone. It was a fluke that after some time Peter drop by for a while. They gave us a map and showed us where turistic atractions are for about 10 min, but they couldn't answer our questions, if metro goes at night, for example. Afterwards we've never seen them again. We got only a one key for 2 people. We didn't get a receipt.
    Fully equipped kitchen? There was't even a kettle! It was imposible to cook something.
    It's a bit dirty there and it's an untruth they're cleaning everyday.
    An extra single bed? Not in our room.
    Porous windows!
    A bottle of wine? Never seen.
    In the bathroom there was only a jacuzzi and it was so dirty we couldn't use it.

    To co dobre, to lokalizacja - naprawdę świetna.
    Reszta była zła. W łazience jedynie jacuzzi z zaciekami brudu. W kuchni brak czystości, gazu, czajnika. Wszędzie były rybiki. Miałyśmy problem ze znalezieniem pokoju, a gdy już go znalazłyśmy to był on pusty. Zupełnym fartem Peter akurat wpadł na chwilę i nas wpuścił. Przez 10min wyjaśnili nam gdzie są które atrakcje, nie potrafili jednak odpowiedzieć na nasze pytania, jak np. o nocne godziny metra. Po tym już ich nie widzieliśmy, a zatem nie sprzątają oni codziennie.
    Dostałyśmy jeden klucz na dwie osoby. Rachunku nie dostałyśmy.
    Miało być dodatkowe łóżko, abyśmy nie musiały spać w jednym - nie było.
    Obiecanej butelki wina też nie.
    Okna nieszczelne, więc było chłodno

  • Marton and the Budapesting team were great hosts. We were welcomed by a friendly member of the team who suggested some places for us to visit and answered all of our questions. They were also very good about letting us store our luggage in the room after checkout while we waited for our flight!

    The apartment is in a perfect and safe location, very close to the city centre and major metro stations. The room and bathroom are quite small, but perfectly charming and great value. We had a great time.

    Hi Duncan! It was a pleasure to have you with us, you're very welcome back whenever you're in Budapest next!

  • Great place. Great price. Go for it!

    February 2014
  • Staying at Marton's appartment was nice. The place was really central and in a lovely area with a lot of good bars. Although there was a tiny mistake made with the booking of the room, Marton and his family solved it pretty well.

    I'd recommend the place if you want to go to Budapest!

    December 2013
  • Marton's place is really clean and his friend was extremely helpful in giving us directions! The location is perfect too and we didn't even needed to take the metro. We basically walked to all attractions from the apartment! xx

  • The apartment was ideally located on a main street in Budapest. Shops and restaurants are close by. It was a clean and well maintained apartment with comfortable furnishings. We weren't given the room shown online when I booked. We stayed in another room in the same apartment, not sure why. Marton also rented out the whole apartment on our last night so we had to move across the hall to another apartment. This sort of hassle is not what I expected, but in the end it worked out alright.

  • Pobyt w Budapeszcie bardzo się udał. Lokalizacja mieszkania świetna- ścisłe centrum, a jednocześnie cicho i spokojnie. Odbiór z lotniska i dojazd na lotnisko w/g ustaleń- duży plus. W mieszkaniu swoboda i niezależność. Jedynymi mankamentami są ogólna czystość w mieszkaniu, oraz potrzeba kilku napraw np w kuchni, w korytarzu lub w pokoju. Ogólnie polecam!
