The Central Hungary/Danube region
Budapest reminds me of Boston, its an easy walking city providing everything from wonderful restaurants to music to theatre to spas. There are museums to occupy you during the day or a thermal spa bath in which to relax and recover your joy de vie. In the evening you can go to the opera (a short walk away), or one of the many concerts. During the summer there is the Sziget Festival or Formula One. What Budapest also has is World Heritage status. The whole of the central downtown area plus the castle district is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and monument area. The apartment is located in the centre of that.
If there was one thing that could capture the spirit of the city it would be an evening walk from the apartment across the Danube and then a short ride up the funicular railway to the castle. A view over the city from the castle is just a wonderful sight and captures the essence of the city.
For those not that keen on walking it has an eclectic mix of transport, ranging from the oldest metro on the continent to trolley buses, trams, boat tours and even a Segway tour. Beside the apartment is a cycle hire facility and also the start of the city cycle tour.
Further afield, apart from the cultural heritage of Székesfehérvár where 15 former rules of Hungary are buried, or Gy?r, Debrecen or Pécs. It is just a 2 hour car journey to Vienna or Bratislava, or four hours to Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania or Ukraine.

This apartment is in a fabulous location for those wishing to explore this delightful city. It is clean, comfortable and offers everything one needs from a well designed kitchen to a sumptuous soak in the corner bath to banish those aches away . You could, if desired, cook a roast dinner! However, with the vast choice of eateries available why bother! Cafe Kor is No 17 Sas Utca and well worth a visit to. For those with a hearty appetite try the Sir Lancelot Restaurant for something very different!
Transfers are stress free, Janos collected us from the airport and although his English is limited he kindly pointed out various landmarks and is very helpful, please be patient and take the time to speak slowly and he will understand. The owner, Alistair is charming and well organised.
Budapest is a lovely place, steeped in history there is much to see and do. If you are into sightseeing and walking this is the place to visit and the apartment is the best place to do it from. Enjoy - we did!

"Right in the heart of the city, best location possible."
We had a great time in Budapest and thie apartment's location was a major factor - everything is on your doorstep. The apartment has all you need. Sometimes when you see picture of an apartment you feel let down - but NOT here. A home away from home (other reviewers have mentioned this and it's true). We'll be back when we are back in Budapest. Thanks Alastair!
