The Central Hungary region
Hungary is one of the oldest European countries, situated in the middle of the continent in Central Europe.
Hungary became a Christian kingdom in A.D. 1000 and for many centuries served as a bulwark against Ottoman Turkish expansion in Europe. The kingdom eventually became part of the polyglot Austro-Hungarian Empire, which collapsed during World War I. The country fell under Communist rule following World War II. In 1956, a revolt and an announced withdrawal from the Warsaw Pact were met with a massive military intervention by Moscow. Under the leadership of Janos KADAR in 1968, Hungary began liberalizing its economy, introducing so-called "Goulash Communism." Hungary held its first multiparty elections in 1990 and initiated a free market economy. It joined NATO in 1999 and the EU five years later. In 2011, Hungary assumed the six-month rotating presidency of the EU for the first time.
Budapest is the city of spas, there are a total of 118 hot springs in the city, which feed more than a dozen baths.
Budapest has long, warm, humid summers and short, cold winters. The city averages more sunshine per year than any other European city. Spring and autumn are beautiful here, as is the summer.Early April marks the beginning of spring, and by May the temperature can reach 21 (Celsius). Summer can be quite warm and humid with temperatures in the high 20s. It stays warm until October. December through February temperatures are usually between -6 and zero. It snows frequently, but the snowfall is light.From April to the end of September, there are about ten hours of sun per day.
Madách sq. is on the west end of 7th district, in the vicinity of the 5th dist., the centre of Pest.
It was built in 1940 and was declared a historic monument by now. Originally the arch of Madách sq. was planned to be the start of an avenue connecting the inner parts of 7th disctrict to the centre of Pest, but because of World War II, works could not begin and Madách sq. became an elegant block of buildings close to the sights of Elizabeth Town as well as the historical centre.
The Dohány Street Synagogue, the largest functioning Jewish temple in Europe, is located in this district. The historic downtown of Budapest contains several bakeries, restaurants, bars (several ruin and retro pubs), non-stop groceries, ATM-s, currency exchange offices, pharmacies. Located close to the City Center, 2 minutes walk from the World Heritage Andrassy Avenue. Very good public transport to the Buda side (Castle 15 minutes by bus). It offers a great opportunity to walk around town, since everything is in walking distance.
In the vicinity lots of opportunities of entertainment are available such as:
-sightseeing tours in various forms, by bus, bicycle, segway, or public transport. Also various free walking tours start from nearby. Riverride - the unique floating bus!
-restaurants, bars (Rézangyal, Godot café, Akvárium, Szimpla, Trófea restaurant, Champs Pub, Sir Lancelot Medieval Restaurant)
- Dohány street Synagogue (second biggest synagogue of the World, after the one in New York City)

"Отличная небольшая квартира"
Отличная небольшая квартира с двумя отдельными спальнями и диваном в гостиной-кухне в центре города (у метро Deak Ference, пересадочной станции для всех трех линий будапештской подземки). Все очень уютно, хорошая кухня. Нас было пять человек - две пары и ребенок - отлично разместились (хотя для постоянного проживания в таком составе квартира, наверное, маловата). Хозяин встретил, все объяснил (в квартире кто-то даже оставил распечатанный путеводитель по Будапешту). Ранний отъезд (маршрутка от Wizzair отъезжает от отеля напротив) не проблема - просто оставили ключи в почтовом ящике. В 11 ночи (когда мы ложились спать) внизу (квартира на втором этаже) еще шумит публика в пивном баре, но нас это не беспокоило.

"Perfect Location and Good Value for Money!"
It's affordable and it is situated at a very strategic location which and only took 2 minutes walk to the city centre of Pest. The host is very nice and helpful and kind enough to answer all of our enquiries while we were there. Highly recommended!

"Cosy flat in the heart of the Bohemian area of Budapest"
When we first arrived at the flat, we found it a little cramped. However, we had just come from a luxury flat in Vienna with bundles of space so it isn't fair to compare the two, This flat is great value for money. Working out at around £130 for 4 days between three people, it competes with the hostels in the area and is a lot more private. Right outside of the flat is the square, where you can numerous cafes and bars to enjoy a nice coffee. This flat is very near Bar Szimpla, in fact it takes no more than 10 mins to walk there and it is ideally located near to all of the ruin bars. The lack of room took a little getting used to but it ended up being a our nice cozy home and we looked forward to coming back to it at the end of the night. The living room converts into a bedroom, and there is separate bedroom. The flat could sleep 4 people comfortably, but ideally I think you should only have around two people in the flat.
I would recommend this flat for a couple who want to get away for a few days and simply need a base. There are millions of amenities around you when staying here, and right outside you can be picked up the local airport transfer (ideal!)
You will see the van picking up and dropping off people, simply speak to them about how to book or go to www.bpexpress.hu, make sure you book ideally 2 days before you travel. You cannot book on the day.
I would stay here again, and I have been told by the owner that they have another flat with a roof terrace which I will be most definitely inquiring into for next year. Krisztian is extremely organised and polite and was always on had to help us with travel information etc.
