This is a cosy, bright and modern apartment in a central neighborhood inhabited mostly by young professionals and ex-pats. The interior of the apartment is practical, stylish and clean.
You will be just a few minutes walk from the main boulevard “Körút”, which encircles the city centre and which is the main artery of Budapest’s day-and nightlife. (The 24-hr tram service on the boulevard means you can get anywhere day or night.)
I am an experienced private host, not a business, and I used to live in this flat which I love so much, because it has all the good energies: a bright, airy and peaceful space. Perfect for relaxation and to get work done if that’s the purpose of your stay in Budapest. It is on the top floor of a modern building, overlooking an inner garden. There is a small balcony to sit with a book on a pleasant summer day. It is also very rare that you can find somewhere so central, but without the noise of the city.
Some more practical details:
You will have access to the followings:
- a clean and modern bathroom with heated towel racks and a washing machine,
- a kitchen perfect to prepare breakfast and smaller meals, equipped with microwave, hob, fridge, a small oven, utensils, pots and free (instant) coffee/tea,
- cable TV with International channel (CNN),
- unlimited fast Wi-Fi Internet is included. There is a desktop computer as well for internet browsing and skype, in case you don’t bring a laptop,
- Ipod/phone docking station
- towels and bedlinen are provided,
- A 24-hour supermarket can be found downstairs. The street is filled with a larger supermarket, countless bakeries and cafés, restaurants (fast food and normal).
- 5 min walk to underground (metro line M3) and Budapest’s famous artery tram lines 4-6 (trams are a 24-hour service). The historical centre can be reached by M3 within 15 minutes. Buy a cheap daily, weekly, or 2-weekly pass or have spare tickets with you, as tickets are constantly controlled by BKV.
- 10 min walk to the river Danube and National Theatre
- 15 min walk to Ráday Street, one Budapest's liveliest streets full of bars and restaurants.
- From the airport it takes about 25 minutes in a taxi and 45-60 minutes on public transport to get to the flat. Taxi costs about 21 EUR which is a fixed rate – always use the official taxi company (FOTAXI) at the airport and don’t go with the touts who might approach you in the arrivals hall.
- Taxies are a rather cheap way of getting around in Budapest, compared to other big cities, but you need to choose the company carefully. It is always cheapest to order a taxi on the phone rather than catching one in the street. Happy to give you the numbers of a few companies, please just ask.
