My cool, brand new, comfortable studio apartment with exposed wooden ceiling has a true Budapest feeling! It comfortably fits two (perfect for couples!) and is centrally located on a quiet building, just two blocks from the Old City.
The studio has been recently renovated and consist of one room acting as a multifunctional area: living space, dinning on a small pull-out table or sleeping on top of the mezzanine... everything is carefully thought trough! There is a small kitchen with all the needed utensils for your stay (pans and pots, microwaves oven, kettle, coffee maker) as well as some basic supply of tea, coffee etc. The bathroom with Venetian shower is situated under the sleeping area.
A couple can sleep really comfortably, either on the cosy mezzanine or on the IKEA pull-out sofa. Check the pictures. In case it is needed, 4 people can also sleep at the studio, but you rather make sure you are really good friends ;)
I will personally meet the guests (unless I'm not in Budapest) on arrival to handover the apartment as well as give advise or answer any question related to the apartment, the area or Budapest in general
The studio apartment it is situated in an 100-year-old building (which unfortunately is pending some paint refreshment and lacking a lift) in the neighbourhood called the Palace Quarter, on a walking distance (5-10 minutes) to landmarks like Váci St (shopping street), the Nagycsarnok (Central Market Hall), National Museum or Synagogue. Ráday street or Miksath square pedestrian areas, perfect for dining al fresco or having a drink after strolling the city are reached in 2 minutes walk.
Public transport is available right on the front door, but probably you won't need it. Metro line connecting to the airport bus is under 200 meters: the cheapest way to reach the airport!
For those environmentally-concerned travellers, during the reconstruction, the biggest part of the debris was either re used (bricks, tiles), up-cycled (iron beams and trusses, pipes) or recycled. The rest was disposed according to the regulations. Construction materials were acquired locally favouring greener ones (low CO2 cement, PVC free pipes, etc)
Отличная квартира-студия из 2 уровней, моноспейс. На втором - двуспальное место и мини чилаут с журнальным столиком. На первом комната с раскладным диваном, ванная и полноценная кухня. Ремонт свежий и очень приличный.
Дом в отличной локации, это классический жилой дом Будапешта "питерского" типа. Парадная лестница, горшки с рассадой лука и велосипеды. Колоритно.
Квартира идеальна для пар или молодежных компаний 4 человека, но только близких друзей (приватности не будет, второй уровень в том же помещении). Людям в возрасте залезть на 2й уровень будет увы проблематично, подъем без лифта на 3й этаж дома с 4х-метровыми потолками также может быть сложностью.
В остальном супер. Мы часто готовили дома, под венгерское вино и вид на внутренний дворик с черепичной крышей ужин шёл прекрасно :) Рынок 5 минут ходьбы. Рядом есть и россыпь баров-кафе-стрипклубов, национальный музей за углом, дешевые магазины продуктов рукой подать, исторический центр 10 минут пешком, метро и трамвай в 200 метрах, короче, месторасположение квартиры идеальное.
The flat is just what it looks in the photos: spotless, cosy and very we'll situated. We had a perfect stay in
Budapest and would recommend this flat for every couple that wants to go on a romantic trip to Hungary. Thanks !
The apartment was really nice and the location is verry convenient. Gerardo is a friendly host.
A great space and cool host. Cozy, practical, cool and central!
A most excellent option, good wifi, cool building as well :) Thanks!
Getting in touch with Gerardo, as well as getting in the apartment was very easy and comfortable. The apartment was very clean and is a comfortable size for a two people.
Within minutes (walking distance) you are in the middle of the city, shopping possibilities, museums, metro (200m), thermal baths, things to see etc. Furthermore there is a little grocery store which is open 24h per day which is a great option if you want to cook your dinner (but only if you stay several days, as the hungarian food is amazing!).
We had a little problem concerning the bathroom towels, but as Gerardo was overseas it was kind of hard to manage things. We managed to solve the issue at the end though. We are sure that if he would have been in Budapest the problem would have been solved sooner.
Generally we must say that we had a splendid time at Gerardos apartment and would recommend it to anyone and we would stay in the same apartment again if we would go to Budapest!
(as it is on the third floor and you have to use a ladder to get to the bed, it might be good if you are used to a little dose of daily excerise ;) ).
Best experience with airbnb so far! flat is true to the photos, spotlessly clean, and right next to a main metro/tram/bus stop and the 9 bus stops right outside the door practically. Gerardo also left a public transportation map and guidebooks.
Very cute and nice little apartment! Designed at built by the owner, very practical, but still comfortable. Good living situation to explore the city. The owner is easygoing and reachable when necessary. He even allowed us to check out a little later. We definitely recommend staying there.
A very nice appartment, we really enjoyed it. Gerardo is very friendly and helpful.
Smart, cozy and very nice flat well-located in the heart of Budapest. Communication worked great, even though Gerardo wasn't there. Flat was very clean too. I just can recommend Gerardo if you would like to stay in his flat. We had a wonderful stay.
I absolutely can recommend Gerardos appartment - it's located centrally- in a walking distance to discover the major sites of Budapest: the market hall, the bridges over the danube (beautiful also at night/illumination), shopping district, St. Stephans Cathedral, the castle's district with the palace of the Habsburg-Dynasty, the Fischer-Bastion, the St. Matthews church - and many other sites! Even for discovering Budapest at night - Gerardos appartment is situated great! It's just 5 up to 10 min away to discover clubs, restaurants and pubs! So - discover Budapest by starting with Gerardos appertment - small, but cosy and comfortable! Thanx a lot Gerardo - especially for havin the chance to have a late check out! Hoping to see you again!
