This spacious, beautifully appointed apartment has a balcony view of St.Stephen's Basilica in one direction and castle hill in Buda hills in the other.

The Basilica and Chain Bridge are only a few minute's walk at opposite ends of the street. The Parliament building and the relaxing Szababsag square, with it's interactive fountain, are only 400 metres away. Zrinyi utca itself offers many high quality options for eating and drinking.
The building's location provides easy access to tram, metro and bus transport, with the river hugging, panoramic tram 2 stopping at the end of the street.
The apartment features a spacious 32 sq.m. main room with black leather couch and armchair, a restored dining table with unique chairs.The apartment retains many of the original architectural features, such as the high, moulded ceiling and large glass doors leading to the stone balcony, from where you can enjoy views of the magnificent St. Stephen's basilica.
The kitchen is fully fitted with all modern conveniences. The cosy bedroom has a double bed and a substantial wardrobe and faces onto the inner courtyard rather than the lively street. The bathroom features a multi-function shower with massage capabilities.
Please keep noise levels down after 22:00.
While there is strictly no smoking allowed in the apartment, there is a covered walkway outside the door and a balcony where guests can smoke.
There are house wheelie bins in the entrance coridor if you'd like to remove excess rubbish from the apartment.
I had a wonderful stay at Kevin's, I wish I didn't have to leave so soon! The apartment is BEAUTIFUL! Fully equipped, comfortable bed, strong wifi - literally could not ask for anything more. And the balcony was beautiful, especially in the evening. Value for money is 100%!!! Definitely will return
Located in the center of the city and very large, comfortable room. The host is very friendly and polite!
Stayed for 3 nights in July. Helpful directions, met on arrival, big lounge. It was very very hot in Budapest - over 35 degrees each day. Fan in the small bedroom was very welcome! (There's no A/C). Great location - view of the Basilica from the balcony. Close to the river, shops, restaurants, metro - everything really! Favourite restaurant was Koleves on Kazinczy utca - it has ruin bars on both sides. Fantastic value for money.
We only have one word for Kevin's apartment: AMAZING!
It's perfect for a short trip and close to all of the lovely parts of Budapest in the very heart of the city.
We felt in love with this beautifully designed and furnished apartment.
We will definetly come back!
The best thing about this apartment is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. It's in a fab spot. walking distance to loads of the main attractions while convenient to bars, restaurants, and public transport. One main quibble see then end.
We arrived two hours late (at 2 am! ) so the guy who was meeting us ( neither our host or the guy he told us about ) didn't hang around, he let us in, pointed to the remote control, handed us the keys and left. That didn't deter us, we were here and the main room of the apartment was fab, just as in the pictures, big & airy.
The bedroom is quite small with the bed against the wall on one side but it is what it is, and more than adequate. Bathroom & kitchenette were fine, and the little balcony great for people watching at any time of the day or night.
The wifi is very patchy to say the least, I contacted Kevin about it and he advised turning it on and off to re-set the router, which we did and it came on, and worked for the hour we were there that day, it never worked again. I didn't bother telling Kevin again, mainly because we were picking up the free wifi from the Italian across the road and it was fine for the times we were there.
My only quibble about this lovely apartment was the towels and sheets. The towels were a big disappointment - only two small bath ones and one tiny hand one provided and they were old and discoloured. We asked for more and another tiny hand one and a bath mat were left there the next day. The sheets were a mass of creases, a fresh pair would do wonders! Towels and sheets are cheap! For a €20 investment this could be dealt with. Have to knock off a star from a lovely apartment for this, as nothing worse than having a shower and trying dry your hair and body etc from the one tiny old towel.
Try the Hummas Bar around the corner - fab food and very reasonable, two fab main courses , extra chips, and a bottle of lovely wine = less than€20. (out of apartment , turn left towards the Basilica & turn left at the statue, just down there on the right.) Enjoy Budapest.
We loved this Airbnb! It was in such a great location everything was within walking distance or right next to the metro. Kevin was really helpful; he even helped us get a taxi to the airport. All of the photos are just like the apartment. The washing machine/dryer was extremely helpful. We especially loved the shower. Budapest was our last location on our Eurotrip, so being able to relax and really enjoy our stay was perfect.
Kevin was really helpful and very friendly. The apartment is superbly located and very comfortable. Highly recommended
