The Central Hungary region
There are 3 main central districts in Budapest, 5th, 6th, 7th, of those the 6th district is the one you would describe in one word as "downtown". Very much the centre for the life and heartbeat of the city. Regardless of the reason for your visit or your interests in which sights, museums, and activities to do while in Budapest the 6th district is somewhere you will spend a lot of time.
Centered around Andrassy ut, there are theatres, galleries, museums and the opera house. Cafes, restaurants, bars and night clubs. Access to all areas of the city is very easy, either on foot or M1, the oldest continental metro line in Europe.
The Opera house is a 1 minute walk from this amazing luxury apartment located on a small quiet back street behind the former building of the Hungarian Ballet Institute. A perfect location between the old Budapest on Andrassy ut and the new Budapest on Kiraly utca with all its restaurants, and designer and boutique shops.

We enjoyed a great trip to Budapest and the central location meant we could walk everywhere. The ground-floor flat is stylish & well-designed and the helpful owner, Andy, has a second flat next-door, … More

"Beautiful apartment in prime location"
We stayed 5 nights at this recently renovated apartment. We loved it, very clean and modern, comfy bed and loved the use of space. We had everything we needed and more. Was great to have a washer/dryer. Location excellent, 15/20 minute walk to most places and close to transport links. Andy, the owner was very friendly and helpful. It was very good value for money.
A few tips though, especially if staying in summer when the sun comes up early; due to lack of curtains it gets quite bright when the sun comes up (even when the weather is grey) so bring an eye mask if you intend on sleeping in past 6.30am. You may also appreciate ear plugs, especially on a Monday morning when the bin men come at the crack of dawn and seem to 'beep' outside the apartment endlessly. We were also unfortunate in that the neighbours had a party on Saturday night, loud music, shouting in the echoing hallway etc until 2am. Luckily we had earplugs! Other than that though the side road that the apartment is on is quiet considering it's City location.
Shower was great, very powerful and modern, however please note it isn't a combi boiler so if 2 of you are needing to shower without a gap in between~ don't be too leisurely, my poor boyfriend had a cold shower on more than one occasion because I was too slow!
Tips: go on the free walking tours!Amazing 2.5 hour tours for a voluntary tip!(Google it for their website) Visit the wonderful ruin bars and for polinka go to cafe nappoli, opposite the apartment. Best restaurants, cafes and bars in the Jewish quarter, turn left and left again instead of right!
We will certainly stay again, albeit with eye masks! Budapest is a great city and everyone was so friendly, I miss it already!
