The exciting and beautiful capital city of Hungary has a lot of offer and makes for a great city break for all ages.
Book your next holiday rental in Budapest and explore the two historic halves of the city, separated by the scenic Danube River.
Budapest was once two separate cities: Buda in the west, and Pest in the east; but has long since come together as one great metropolis, intersected by the river. Locally, things are often still referred to as belonging to Buda if on the west side of the river, or Pest if located on the east.
Packed with interesting cultural landmarks and beautiful parks and scenery, there's a lot to see and do here, so it's sure to please just about everyone.
What to do
The thermal baths are the ideal stop for a pampering treat. Head to any public thermal baths and enjoy a soak in the natural heated mineral waters.
Top Budapest travel tips
There's a pretty old-fashioned ticket validating system on public transport. Make sure you get your ticket punched before boarding, as fines can be fairly massive.

NN Apartman in Budapest Center, where luxury meets convenience
Perfect location for seeing all the sights in Budapest
We had a fantastic stay here, the apartment was well equipped, clean and comfortable and Gabriella was a great help in sorting out transfers to and from the airport as well as suggesting things to do. It was in easy walking distance to all the attractions, The Danube, Buda castle, houses of parliament and the chain bridge to name a few. A night wine tasting cruise is well worth the money and a lot of fun and The Central Market is worth a visit too. There were also plenty of places to eat very nearby and the food was lovely everywhere. The Prima supermarket was just up the road and was well stocked with all the basics and more. We fell in love with Budapest and would definitely like to come back one day. …
2BR/2BA, A/C ❤ LUXURIOUS SUITE WITH GRAND LOCATION AND CITY VIEW!
We stayed here for 3 nights and it was the perfect apartment for our break. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped, very comfortable and quiet. It is just off a main shopping street with a great selection of shops, restaurants and cafes. It is also only 5 minutes walk to the river and all the other tourist attractions are easily walkable from it. Tom, the owner, was very helpful and provided us with a map of all the best places in the area, from things to see and do, to the best places to eat and drink. If we return to the city in the future we would definitely stay here again. …
Great studio,great location
This cosy property is very central. Michael was super helpful with everything we needed (what to see,taxis for the airport) and the property was very clean and well equipped.
I would recommend that you visit Budapest and when you do, to stay at this property. We had a great long weekend. Many thanks for having us. …
Super Apartment BOKRETA 5bdr
Long weekend away
Booked the apartment for a long weekend with friends and family and was not disappointed!
Apartment was spotless, well equipped and perfectly located. The kitchen and dining room was a great size for all of us to socialise in and they even had a PlayStation with lots of games.
Air con in every room too which was a lifesaver as when we were there it was very hot all weekend. Loads to do in the city, shame we weren't there for longer to see it all!
Would definitely recommend to anybody!!
(Only downside was the lift was not working when we were there but not a massive issue) …
50 metres from the River Danube - Parliament view
Fabulous one week stay in Eugene's Budapest apartment for a party of five adults. Great location, great view and more spacious than appears from photos.
Very high temperatures that week so we were grateful for the floor fans. Delightful Judi met us and showed us through. Loved the ambience of the apartment, handy to supermarket and variety of neighbourhood eateries. The Kiraly bath house opposite was an experience. Eugene extremely prompt answering questions and checking our comfort.......certainly recommend.
LUXURY STAY IN DOWNTOWN BUDAPEST

Helen and Frank Guesthouse
The apartment was everything we'd hoped it would be and more. First of all, the location was very convenient to so much we wanted to do. It was far enough away from the main tourist areas that we felt we were living in the city and not "an attraction" and yet just minutes to dining, key sights, and only a couple blocks from Budapest's great transit system. We rode the metro and trams all week.
Second, the apartment is HUGE. They are 4 big bedrooms, a main salon, huge kitchen, and two spacious bathrooms. We were a very comfortable family of 7, and could have fit another 7. The apartment is massive.
Third, Anna has done a fabulous job bringing the story of Helen and Frank to life. We felt like their guests, and connected to their heroism, their love story, and their love of Hungary. This was our first trip to Hungary, and being able to experience this beautiful city with Helen and Frank (and Anna) as our hosts was... magical. …
Chic in the downtown

Annamasia even arrange our taxi back to the airport …
BASILICA ATTIC: CASTLE VIEW
Fantastic location, stunning apartment, amazing basillica view and lovely host!!
We had a group of 9 of us staying at the basillica apartment for the duration of a week and we had a fantastic time. The apartment is an ideal location minutes from the metro system and is practically right in the centre of the city. The views out the window of the basillica were just breathtaking. There are two fully equipped bathrooms with showers which wad ideal for our large group and the sleeping set up of 3 generous double beds and extra mattresses was better than what we had imagined it would be. Very comfortable and very clean apartment. Michelangelo was an excellent host very attentive and helpful from even before we arrived. Would recommend staying here to big and small groups alike. …
