About This Listing
Staying in our Double Room you'll 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 Double 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.
Peter was nice to let us check in early to fit our schedule and gave us good recommendations regarding food and attractions in Budapest. The apartment is very secure with a well equipped kitchen and toilets and also washing machine. The room is spacious and it was overall a great experience.
This place is great! The house has exactly what you need and the location is perfect! Very close to great shopping, the river, and fun bars! I definitely recommend staying here for a lovely Budapesting experience!
Ce logement est très bien situé dans budapest
Malgré un quartier très animé le soir, l'appartement est au calme.
Il est composé de trois chambres de diverse capacité avec une salle de bain, WC et cuisine partagés
Peter m'a très bien accueillie malgré du retard et donne des conseils pour mon séjour. Il m'a proposé de laisser mon sac même après l'heure de sortie pour me laisser profiter de la fin du séjour
Il propose serviettes de toilette, sèche cheveux, lave linge
Tout y est
Je recommande cette location
We were very enthusiastic to stay at this place since it had so many good reviews, but it was unfortunately a bit disappointing.
The best thing about this room is the location, it's very central and in a nice area with a lot of possibilities to travel by public transportation or foot. Negative things about our stay were:
1. The was no hot water, 3 of 4 showers were icecold
2. The bedframe on one side kept falling down which was very annoying and we couldn't reach our contactperson about it (saw in a review someone wrote about this in february already so seems like they just didn't bother to fix it for months)
3. The room is next to a very busy street and there's a lot of noise from the traffic (earplugs are a must!)
I would not recommend this room to be honest.
Hello Yael, I am sorry to hear about your experience. The boiler switches off if it is manually switched off by someone (for example another guest) or if it is very windy outside. However it is really easy to relight, the method is exactly the same as a gas stove (instructions for this can be found on the billboard together with other useful information), furthermore we inspect it on a regular basis to see if it is working (as we have formely experienced several times that guests who are not used to gas heaters occasionally, even though they are asked not to, switch off the blue main lever and cut off the gas supply).
Concerning your bed I must state that no, it is absolutely not true that we have't addressed the issue since February. To explain to you in brief, due to the design of the ikea bed if the bed is moved excessively, the bed slates under the mattress turn sideways, one or two slates may fail to be supported from underneath and then the string connecting the slates break and gaps are formed in the whole structure which cause the slates to fall down. Unfortunately this is a design problem of the bed, we have replaced the bed slates with completely new ones 3 times now and the problem still persists so it now seems that we will have to come up with an alternative solution. I am sorry for the inconvenice.
About your third issue, all our windows are double and apart from this they are double glazed with sound insulation. Therefore if they are closed properly, it is highly unlikely to encounter excessive noise levels. Yes, if they are open there is noise coming in, but unfortunately if you have an apartment so centrally located in a big city it is very hard to completely avoid street noise.
Finally I have to emphasis that me or my brother or sister are available 24 hours a day on phone, email, airbnb platform etc. and we honestly didn't receive a query from you...
I nevertheless hope that you enjoyed your stay and I hope to welcome you back again when everything is perfectly set in line with your expectations.
We had a nice stay here. The location was excellent and everything worked well in the apartment (the beds were especially comfortable!). One thing to keep in mind is that you are potentially sharing the apartment with other airbnb guests, which isn't really an issue except there is only one bathroom.
Hi Alexander, Thank you for your stay! Thanks also for your compliments. We offer several different arrangements to our guests spreading from a single private room with shared facilities to private rooms with en an suite bathroom all the way to an entire apartment with several bathrooms. It all depends on one's needs and budget! Hope to see you again!!!
Peter was an excellent host! He was accommodating with our late check in and check out and even met us at the subway station upon arrival. Peter explained how all of the gates worked when entering his flat and then sat us down to give us a map of Budapest with a few recommendations and "must sees". We carried that map with us everywhere! The flat was comfortable, however, the front bedroom was a little noisy with traffic. Otherwise, we had a great stay. The flat was very centralized and we were able to get to most places with a quick bus ride or walking. We will be staying with Peter again on our next trip.
