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.

We stayed in Julia’s apartment in January and really liked everything about it. Location – it is situated in a quiet and peaceful district, where it is really pleasant to walk. Yet in 5 minutes you can get to the very heart of the Castle Hill. All other places of interest are also easy to reach either by foot or by metro or bus. However, we preferred to walk to most of the points. The apartment itself is spacious, sunny and full of air, especially the living room, where we spent a lot of time. It has all the necessary stuff we needed during our trip. The host, Maria, Julia’s mother welcomed us warmly and explained us everything about the apartment and about Budapest. It was a pleasant surprise to find some food left for us, including warm fresh bread, cheese, some fruit etc. We especially appreciated the apricot jam that Maria had made herself – we are not very much about jams, but this was something exceptional! We would warmly recommend this place to our friends and would like to stay in this apartment again if we return to Budapest.
My wife and I stayed in the apartment for three weeks. We wish we could have stayed longer. This pleasant and charming apartment lacks nothing to make a visit to Budapest a most pleasant experience. It is on the top (third) floor of the building, accessible with an elevator. Every detail in the apartment is of very high quality and everything works. It is well appointed with all kinds of appliances, including a washing machine and dishwasher. A modem and router are located in the apartment for a fast WiFi internet access.
As for the location, the apartment is located in the Castle District of Buda on a quiet street, within easy walking distance to a major train station, also tram, bus and Metro stations. For the more athletically inclined, there are the steps of the Granite Stairs which will take one right into the heart of the Castle. Nearby, again within walking distance, there are two parks, several restaurants, a supermarket. At one tram stop away there is major shopping mall, the Mammut. All of the historical and architectural sites of Budapest can be reached easily with public transportation.
This review would not be complete without mentioning our perfect hosts, Julia's parents, János and his charming wife Mária Pintér. In addition to being very helpful throughout our visit, János even drove us to the top of Gellért Hill to show us a magnificent evening view of Budapest.
This is really a hard review to write, we were impressed when we walked in and saw how large the apartment was with two baths and that really cool stairs to the second bedroom with a fantastic view on the way up. Then it just kept getting better. A view of castle hill out the kitchen window and a view of Gellert hill from the living room window , comfortable couches to lounge in when we weren't out exploring. Julia's father, Janos , gave us ideas for exploration and was so kind and helpful! (Love your Dad Julia) the apartment was ideally located close to transportation, grocery, cafes. So that's what makes this a hard review to write, I could go on and on, in short loved the place and Budapest (Thanks Janos and Julia)
A perfect apartment. Size, location, equipment, check-in... everything was just perfect. We were overwhelmed ;) Thank you for everything.
We had a really great time at Julias apartment. Prior to booking my queries we swiftly responded and at the apartment Julias dad was a great source of information and support of any kind.
Some things I wish to highlight:
- The apartment is actually much bigger than it appeared to me on the pictures, a great place to two couples or groups of people, with two bathrooms and a huge living area over two floors;
- The location is superb, literally a stone throw away from the castle, public transport can be reached within five minutes walk;
- The apartment was in excellent condition, clean and tidy, kitchen fully equipped and one bedroom even has an AC, but other rooms were also fine as there were fans;
Overall I can really recommend the apartment, thanks Julia!
Our stay at this lovely apartment was perfect! Julia responded to my interest immediately, answering all questions quickly through email. The directions that Julia provided were clear and easily communicated to the taxi driver from the airport. The apartment was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Julia's father greeted us at the door and welcomed us warmly. He walked us through all the workings of the apartment and even offered to show us some of the sites of Budapest.. My family all met frequently at the apartment before and after excursions, having meals together spending time together playing games and just talking. There was a significant amount of travel literature available about Budapest and Hungary. The apartment is one street away from the castle in a lovely neighborhood. Transportation was easily accessed as well as charming shops, restaurants and a grocery store. We spent many hours with my granddaughter in a large park and playground nearby.
I highly recommend Julia's apartment as a perfect place to stay when you visit Budapest.
We had a great stay at Julia's place in the Castle area. The location is good and best of all her father is a wonderful host.
My parents and I had a great stay in Julia's apartment. While Julia was not there, her father took really good care of us and went out of his way to make sure we settled in and knew where everything was. He even took us out one night to see the lights of Budapest which was a real highlight. He was also a great resource for finding out more about Budapests history.
The apartment is perfectly located and was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay again.
It's a great app. The only problem can be heat. The hosts are very kind.
We stayed at this beautiful apartment for a month. It is a well situated place and easy to reach all the important places. The Castle is just 2 flights of steps away.
Our Host, Janos, took care of us like we are family and he took us to see the sights of Budapest.
The apartment had a well stocked kitchen with plenty of water, coffee, and food.
We highly recommend this apartment!
