Boutique Basilica Apartment
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
In a quiet, cobble-stoned street, no more than a stone's throw from the Basilica, this apartment offers a welcome calming refuge in this busy, cosmopolitan city. Neighbouring streets link Szabadság square to Szent István square, and beyond to Erzsébet square and Deák Ferenc Square. The apartment is on the top floor of this 19 Century house, with lift access, where the traditional meets modern-day convenience and comfort. Ample space for four sharing, but equally suitable as a cosy retreat for two.

The Central Hungary/Danube region
In Central Hungary and the Danube region you will find many aspects of traditional and modern-day culture represented, whether through music, the arts, handicrafts, or live-performance in theatres, and other venues. Festivals are held regularly, whether in celebration of traditional foods (for example the Mangalica Festival) or traditional wines (for example, HungarianTokaji). The region enjoys a continental climate, with wide (but relatively predictable) variation from very hot in the peak summer months, to very cold in the depths of mid-winter. This makes for seasonally-rich contrasts, from Christmas markets and mulled wine (best enjoyed outdoors) to impromptu garden bars (or kerts) in unlikely locations during late spring and summer. Cafés, Hungarian and International cuisine are never far away. A visit to the thermal baths can be enjoyed throughout the year.
In Budapest itself, the Opera House hosts spectactular performances (including Ballet) all year-round. With a little advance planning for Premiéres, and sometimes at the last minute for Repertoire pieces, tickets can be obtained making a visit to the Opera House on Andrássy út a reality even during a short stay. Alternatively, perhaps a trip to the Erkel, a sister venue. There are myriad theatres across the city, offering performances of classic and contemporary works. There are opportunities for wine-tasting, not just at wine festivals but at wine dinners as well, where a range of Hungarian wines can be tasted with a variety of accompanying dishes. There are museums, studios selling traditional handicrafts (for example, brightly coloured felt designer hats). There are classical music concerts at venues across the city, usually well advertised.

We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights in October, I can honestly say it is one of the best rentals we have stayed in. The apartment was in an excellent location very close to the basilica, restaurants and a very handy supermarket a couple of doors away. The apartment itself was spacious, modern and spotlessly clean. It had everything we needed and more. Catherine (the host) was very welcoming and so helpful, she met us late evening and took time to show us what we needed to know as well as providing restaurant and attraction information and a welcome pack! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Budapest and if coming again will definitely stay at this apartment or the other near the river that the owners have as I am sure it will be of the same high standard.

And like before looking forward to our next trip to this fabulous city.

"A wonderful place to stay while visiting Budapest"
We loved the apartment - it's spacious and beautifully designed with attention to detail, filled with natural light.
The location is perfect, within walking distance to main attractions, close to plenty of restaurants and wine bars, yet feels peaceful and quiet.
The apartment was immaculately clean upon arrival and had all the necesary amenities, including high speed wifi which came in very handy.
Catherine is a warm and welcoming host, she made us feel right at home and gave us great recommendations.
We enjoyed our stay very much, we'll be happy to return to this lovely apartment during our next visit to Budapest.

This apt is fabulous!! The apt is much larger than you expect,it is immaculately clean and the decor is stunning.The location is perfect. Catherine the owner and interior designer met us at the door on our arrival. She took time to explain everything that we would need to know during our stay,recommended places and even organised our taxi back to the airport.We also had coffee,tea and wine for our arrival.
The apt itself is beautifully done and very modern internally with dishwasher,washing machine ,microwave, dvd player etc. It has lovely big windows and air conditioning and no the bells from the basilica do not waken you in the morning. It is in a very private ,quiet building that feels very secure. This was our second trip to Budapest and we will most certainly be returning and we will be staying here or in Catherines other 1 bedroom riverside apt. As a family we are very well travelled throughout Europe and the USA and i have to say that this is the best apt we have stayed in. Well done Catherine 10/10
