Not only stay in the heart of the city with perfect public transportation and in walking distance from popular attractions and ruin pubs but we also prepared a Robert Capa walk for you since you stay across the world-famous photographer’s birthplace.
Robert Capa: ‘If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough.’ Take Capa’s advice to heart and stay in our apartment – just across to Capa’s birthplace – right in the heart of the city next to the mayor’s office. You cannot get any closer to what’s happening in town.
I and my family loved to live here because it is a peaceful building but only 5-10 minutes away from practically anything downtown. The master bedroom and the living room face a dead-end street with no traffic and the second bedroom faces the quite courtyard. I hope you will also like my family’s traces: the pictures on the wall taken by my photographer husband and you can compare your height to that of my kids and us in the former room of my children that serves as one of the bedrooms today.
You will get keys to the whole two-bedroom+living room+kitchen apartment on the 1st floor (practically it is the second storey) of the building (with elevator). There are two double beds available.
You will find clean towels, hair dryer, basic toiletry and a well equipped kitchen (microwave oven, dishwasher, oven with hood, electric cooktop, kettle, toaster etc.) with some coffee & tea, sugar, salt & basic spices and some cereal... There are guest slippers too.
There is WiFi and cable TV channels in the apartment.
Interaction with guests
Please contact me if you have any questions or problems before or during your stay.
Other things to note
Robert Capa was born just across the street in 1913 and he lived there with his family until he was 18. We prepared a Capa-walk for you to guide you through all places related to Capa (mainly downtown close to other attractions and the apartment). Capa appears throughout the apartment, you can take a bath reading a book together with him (his favourite activity in the mornings) and he will be at the dining table too as drawn by a Hungarian graphic artist.
I started with a Capa quote, let’s get inspiration from another one for the end as well:
There is an old joke from the 1930s about the Hungarians dominated Hollywood on a sign on a movie studio wall reading ‘It's not enough to be Hungarian. You have to have talent.’
And the new version of it revised by Capa referring to Hungarian virtue: ‘It's not enough to have talent, you also have to be Hungarian.’
Please always take off your shoes in the flat.
Please be considerate towards other tenants of the building and keep a normal loudness level especially during the night.
You can smoke on the small balcony of the flat.
I am Éva (34), a civil engineer and the mother of two (Flóra and Gergő as you will see from the signs on their previous room’s door in the apartment) together with my photographer and photo editor husband. I come from the countryside and I have lived in four cities in numerous dormitories, rented rooms and apartments so I learned to really appreciate if a flat is homelike and cozy. As a young couple we wanted to move to a lovely apartment that is right in the centre, close to everything. We enjoyed to buzz together with the city for eight years and now we live a little bit less central because of the two kids but we are quite sure our kids will end up moving back to Városház Street one day, it is such a nice location. My husband travels a lot because of his work and we love to discover new countries and cities together as well, we tried to think about what we need when going elsewhere while preparing the apartment for you.
