The Central Hungary region

This top floor ultra-modern two bed & two bath penthouse apartment is in the XIII district. It has access to all amenities, including the colourful local fruit & veg market, 'Lehel Piac', has two large terraces for 'living', sunbathing, and al fresco dining while you watch the ships and enjoy the double panoramic views.

A 10 minutes walk on the river bank towards the city will take you to Margaret Bridge, where you can either go and relax, run or swim on the Margret Island or take the No 2 tram down town. If you want down town quicker you can take the No 3 Metro at Dozsa Gyorgy utca, a couple of blocks away from the apartment.

Budapest is more than the Hereos Square and the Vaci utca!

The city offers endless cultural, wellness, and sight-seeing attractions from a visit to the opera or concert-halls, the Castle to the Basilica or taking boat trips on the Duna.

It has one of the most famous and largest Basilica in Central Europe which has recently been restored to its formal glory.

Hungarian State Opera House is a neorenaissance palace built in 1884 and is one of the city's most beautiful buildings. The Opera House seats 1200 and is open all year around, with special performances and events at the Christmas season culminating with a New Years Eve Ball. A must for Opera and Ballet lovers.

Millennium Underground Railway is Europe's second underground system was opened in 1896 on the occasion of the Millennium. It currently runs as the Metro 1 line.

You should set aside a day to visit the Castle District. Located on the other side of the river, and visible from the apartment, will take you all day, the key features being the Royal Palace, the St Mathias Church and the Halaszbastha (Fisherman's Bastion).

"20th August is the equivalent of the 4th July for the Hungarians, where Christians and the country celebrate that they are still 'standing' after the horrors of the Sovet occupation and Communism. Of course, you could watch the spectacular fire works from our penthouse's terrace - a free treat for you, as you will not have to pay top dollar just to see it and be amongst the crowds. Instead you will have your privacy sharing a glass or two of one of the many excellent Hungarian vines and sparkling proseccos.

It is our opinion, the clear, fresh air in the heart of the city is one of the many important features of this apartment, especially in the summer.

Budapest the capital of Hungary (10.1 million inhabitants), a land-locked country, with its beautiful setting and marvellous panoramic views is one of the most attractive European capitals. It was much admired in the Middle Ages as the following mediaeval saying shows "the most beautiful towns of Europe are Florence on the lowland, Venice on the water and Buda on the hills."

In modern times Budapest's outstanding qualities were recognised by UNESCO in 1987 placing the banks of the Danube and the Buda Castle district on the World Heritage List.

The Danube, the longest river in Central and Western Europe, leaves the hills behind and enters the lowlands just in the vicinity of Budapest. The hilly Buda was founded on the right bank and the low-lying Pest on the left. The Danube was, and, is still today an important water-way in this region.

With its rich and varied architecture and cultural heritage, Hungary's capital deserves its reputation as the 'Paris of Central Europe'.

Its identity is as complex as its people, a result of a mix races of the last 1000 years.


In St Istvan (Stephen) Park, just a 5 minutes walk away from the apartment, you will find typical Hungarian restaurants with the option of al fresco dining at reasonable prices.

2010 Budapest Summer Festival has ongoing concerts, dance, drama performances on the Margaret Island Open-Air stage, you can walk home from there!

Margaret Island is also the 'lung' of the city, where the 'budapestiek' go for a walk, and run around on the specially made soft rubber running track (approx 2km).

You will also find one of the largest Lido's, called Palatinus on the island with its beautiful parkland and a Sport Centre where European swimming and other sport competitions are held regularly.

Thrill-seekers get extra hours for flipping, soaring, whirling and tumbling until well after dark during the summer months at the 'Vidampark' Amusements Park, which celebrates its 60's anniversary this year is worth a visit.(District XIV).

In the winter, there is a very large ice-skating rink just behind the Hereos Square where you will have a unique skating experience complete with a mock Mediveal Castle.

Two museums face each other on Heroes Square, one is the Museum of Fine Arts, the other is the Mucsarnok, exhibiting mainly modern arts and design works.

Do not forget to ask for English speaking theatre performances and cinema information when arriving at the airport. Information is also available from centres around the city.

Palace West End City Centre is practically on your door step (15-20min walk from the apartment) with its hundreds of eateries, and shopping opportunities. There are also showings of English speaking films.

"Excellent apartment overlooking the Danube"

Penthouse Paradise is an excellent apartment with two balconies overlooking the Danube. It is slightly removed from the centre of Budapest but the nearest metro in only 10 minutes walk. During our vis… More

Thank you so much for your review, and for giving us a five star rating. It is very gratifying as both I and my agent work hard to ensure that our guests have a good time staying with us. Yes, it can get hot with temperatures reaching 30 deg at times. To avoid having to charge everybody for air conditioning (no matter what the time of year) we set a weekly allowance of 35Kw of electricity which is included within our rental costs. This is more than adequate for most guests. If the cost of this is exceeded by more than Euro 10, then the guests get charged on a unit basis. In really hot weather this can work out between euro 10 and Euro 20 for a five night stay, so very reasonable. Our two balconies provide the perfect opportunity to move around depending on just how much sun or shade you want. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

"A good base"

We enjoyed our stay in Budapest, and the apartment was a good base.The views were great, especially at night.Margaret Island was a highlight for us. We hired a bike for 4. Great fun!We used the nearb… More

Thanks so much for your review which will assist future guests. We also think it's a good base, so much so, that we stay over Christmas time.
We think we are close enough to down town for toursit attractions, yet good for the "sporty types" like you who made use of the very special Margaret Island where cars are not allowed.Our pool is a big attraction, and very popular with our guests. Just take the lift down from our penthouse to the pool! Our high speed internet connection lets you stay in easy contact with freinds and family. Hope to see you again.

Glad to hear that you want to come back again.

Just book early as the apartment gets booked out early.

It was nice to do business with you.

How very nice that these guests recognized our apartment as being 'A home from home.' It is true, as we stay there during the winter months.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! My agent and I, work very hard to think of everything you will need to have a fabulous holiday.
Your review is very useful for future guests as you pointed out that the apartment was very comfortable for four adults, as it has two equally good bedrooms. You also mentioned the public transport, which is very good and the fact that over 65's travel FREE! of course, the river view is always popular, what ever the weather. The local market is a great treat to buy fruit and veg and enjoy what the season offers. Thank you again and hope that you will recommend us to your friends.

Oh, what a glorious review! Thank you so much! Great to read that you went to the 'Lehel Ter Market', which sells a wonderful selection of fruit and veg, and is so colourful.
It also helps to have local convenience stores just around the corner.
The security and quietness are two of the strong points of Riverside, not to mention the two terraces.
So glad that you found it easy to rent, as we pride ourselves on having a simple and reliable booking system.
Looking forward to welcoming you back in the future.

"Classy accommodation in a quiet location with easy city access"

This is a lovely place to stay - a big immaculate apartment with 2 private balconies, fully equipped kitchen and views to Margaret Island. Eva the owner was easy to deal with from initial enquiry to r… More

Hello Dear Past Guests and thank you for taking the trouble to give us a wonderful review!

We appreciate everything you said about our place, except with a little correction.

When I send out our 'Letter of Offer' it clearly states what we offer, including the descriptions of a 'bath only' in the large bathroom and one shower, bidet, WC, two wash-hand basins. This might have escaped your notice.However, we think, we will put a shower head on above the bath.

Yes, you were right, everything is close and life is very comfortable with wonderful views in this penthouse apartment.

You may like to know that Budapest came in second place in one of Conde's list as the most beautiful city in Europe!


Thanks again for your valued support and perhaps we will see you in the near future in one of our other places, Italy and Cyprus.
