The space

The apartment is on the first floor of a lovely quiet, classic apartment building.

The light and airy Sitting Room has a comfortable sofa, easy chairs and coffee tables, together with a TV and DVD player. The Dining Area has a table to seat 6 and there is small desk - ideal for working if you are here on business.

The Bathroom is well-lit and spacious, with bath tub, shower, large washhand basin and WC. There is also a second seperate WC.

The hand-built Kitchen is fully equipped with good quality cutlery, white Hungarian porcelain crockery and Bohemian crystal glasses for all that delicious Hungarian wine! There is an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

Other things to note

The Castle District is busy during the daytime, mostly with people coming to visit this fascinating and historic area. However, in the early evening the tourists go home leaving the magic of the place to be enjoyed by the locals and those of us lucky enough to be staying there.

There is a well stocked supermarket close by and an excellent local maket and food shops at the bottom of the hill at Mammut.

The apartment is in a fantastic location - just by Mathias Church. It's a lovely apartment with high ceilings and everything you could need. Peter was a brilliant host - responding quickly to our questions, arranging a car from and to the airport - and even meeting us after midnight as we had a late flight in to Budapest. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend in Budapest.

In one of the best places in all of Budapest - plenty to see and do from this apartment, which is a gem! If it's available go for it- we loved it!

Comfortable, warm and clear apartment in a lovely location near some very nice restaurants and scenic walks to the Gellert baths or ruin bars in Pest! Highly recommended! Main bedroom has 180 degree of Matthias church up to the palace dome, very pretty! Peter, our host, was easily contactable and very helpful and pleasant to deal with, thank you!

Peter is the perfect host and made sure our arrival was smooth and easy. The flat is stunning and spacious with beautiful views in the hills and is in one of the best parts of town. Everything is easy to get to from here and you'll be very happy you chose this part of town to stay in, as it's just magical.

Peter was very helpful and prompt, and arranged an excellent value taxi pick up and return to the Airport. The location is fantastically convenient, with key sights, eating and shopping facilities right on the doorstep. The bus stop and tourist information office are both 30m from the flat, and are both very efficient and reliable. The flat is spacious and very well equipped, with super views. Highly recommendable.

We loved Peter's apartment. It was absolutely beautiful (high ceilings, huge windows) and had everything that we needed (well-equipped kitchen; big comfy beds; excellent wifi; great bathroom). The views and location are amazing: right opposite the stunning Mattyas church on one side, and glimpse of the castle dome from the other. Staying in beautiful Castle Hill felt like a privilege, and the useful number 16 bus goes right past the apartment (short ride to riverfront, Pest centre, etc.). Peter was lovely and extremely helpful, responding promptly to questions before arrival, and meeting us to let us in and give us advice about things to see and do. Can't recommend this beautiful apartment highly enough - we would definitely love to stay here again if we return to Budapest.

What a lovely apartment this is! The location being inside the Var is amazing and a bit like a fairy-tale! The apartment is fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay - proper iron and ironing board were particularly helpful as we were going to a wedding. Plenty of clean towels, hand soap in bathrooms and toilet paper and washing up things in the kitchen. The kitchen was well equipped also with everything we needed and would have been good enough for regular cooking even though we ate out most of the time. The two bedrooms both had a comfortable real bed, clean sheets and plenty of blankets although it was warm enough that we didn't need them. Peter was a very gracious host - great communication, replying to messages quickly and organising our taxi to pick us up from the airport. He was very accommodating with our late check-in time and met us in the evening as we arrived to show us the apartment and even brought us delicious pastries from his bakery! This apartment feels very spacious and would easily suit a longer stay which I hope we will be able to do sometime in the future! There were 3 of us staying there and it was perfect for us and there is plenty of room for 4 people. Because of the warm weather we kept the windows open at night and I would recommend earplugs if you do that, but with the windows shut it is very quiet. (just to note that we chose to open the windows - but there are fans in the apartment and even 2 airconditioning units, but we just didn't use them - although if we were staying longer, we definitely would have used them!). All in all this was a truly beautiful place to stay - I would unreservedly recommend it! Also if you are looking for a special place to splurge for dinner one evening - 'Alabardos' round the corner was a bit pricy, but worth every penny and a real treat! And ofcourse Budavari Retes Var has great Retes (Hungarian Strudel)! Thank you Peter for the lovely apartment which helped make our stay very special!
