About This Listing
Welcome to our home! We are certain that you will love staying at our penthouse during your stay in Budapest.
This 2-bedroom beautiful penthouse is situated on the Buda side, in the first and oldest district of Budapest, literally right behind Buda Castle. The historic Chain Bridge and the Buda tunnel are about 15 minutes away either by walk or public transport, while the Castle area (including the Fishermen’s Wharf, medieval streets with shops and restaurants, views at the Parliament etc.) is obviously within a couple of minutes walking distance. Gellert Spa, an institution on its own, is a quick three stops away by tram.
The largest intersection of the subway lines in Pest (Deak Square) is only a 10-15 minute bus ride from our apartment.
The apartment comes with two bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with a convertible sofa. The apartment also comes with a huge and spacious living room with excellent views of Buda. One of the bedrooms has a private bathroom, there are a total of two bathrooms and a toilet in the apartment. The fully equipped kitchen comes with a stove, fridge, microwave, toaster and dishwasher.
Being on the top floor and located in a street with hardly any traffic, our penthouse is pretty quiet year round.
Safe, affordable parking is also available.
Children under 10 stay for free.
Although we will not be around, you would be assisted by my world traveler parents who live in the next building, speak English, Spanish, German, French and Russian.
Please drop us a line before attempting any booking and feel free to contact us with any special requests or questions that you may have.
No smoking or pets allowed in the apartment. Please let us know in advance if you expect any visitors during your stay.
We are pretty flexible about check-in or check-out.
This is the second time I have stayed here, the previous being in 2012. As before, the apartment is fantastic, even better than the photos. It's incredibly well looked after, and has everything you need making it a perfect place to stay in Budapest. Ideal for the Castle district, the river and many of the main attractions within reasonable walking district. Quiet, clean and safe area with lots of local cafes and restaurants to try. Super quick communication and would definitely recommend (again!)
We were met by Julia's Father, Janos, and he could not have been more welcoming, generous or kind. The apartment was stocked with the needed basic foods AND extra treats! The apartment is lovely and truly spacious living for four (or five). The location is great with easy access to public transportation. Budapest exceeded our expectations for beauty and friendliness and this apartment was the perfect place to stay. Julia was also very helpful when we had a change of plans. We and our friends would highly recommend this listing.
Julia and her mother Maria are the loveliest people you could ever meet! They are both the most perfect hosts. They are understanding and considerate about everything you need. I absolutely recommend them without hesitation.
The property is fantastic. It's got two floors with everything you need and plenty of room. It's comfortable and in a fantastic location. It's on the Buda side of Budapest. The castle is just a gentle stroll away.
Thank you, Julia! And thank you, Maria!
Thank you Julia (and Janos). Absolutely brilliant. The apartment is fantastic, even bigger than it looks in the pics with loads of space and very well equipped. Lovely double bedroom and bathroom downstairs and even larger upstairs double plus single with its own en suite. Julia's father Janos is an intelligent, delightful and charming gentleman, speaks perfect english and is extremely helpful. He will organise everthing you need and more. We are a family of 4 adults and loved the whole experience. Budapest is a beautiful city and this apartment right beside Buda Castle and hill is within easy reach (5min walk) of local metro and tram stops getting you into the entire city within 30mins. So easy.
Fantastic apartment in a pretty good location. You're within walking distance to many sites in the Buda area. The apartment itself is magnificent. I wish I had one of these in NYC. It's big enough for at least four other people, maybe more. It's clean, as well.
I'd also like to thank Julia's father Janos for being an amazing host. He took us up to see the entire city at night. The very high view was great and Janos's company was even better. Thank you.

About the Host, Julia
We are a young couple based in New York. Originally from Budapest, Hungary, we are currently on an assignment to the US. Both of us work as tax consultants for a big accounting firm in the city (No, most of the time it is not as boring as you think :)).
We love animals but city life prevents us from having one. We are very conscious about our environment, recycle everything we can, consume locally grown, organic food to the extent we can and pay attention to keeping our ecological footprint as low as possible.
