The Central Hungary region
This top floor ultra-modern two bed & two bath penthouse apartment is in the XIII district. It has access to all amenities, including the colourful local fruit & veg market, 'Lehel Piac', has two large terraces for 'living', sunbathing, and al fresco dining while you watch the ships and enjoy the double panoramic views.
A 10 minutes walk on the river bank towards the city will take you to Margaret Bridge, where you can either go and relax, run or swim on the Margret Island or take the No 2 tram down town. If you want down town quicker you can take the No 3 Metro at Dozsa Gyorgy utca, a couple of blocks away from the apartment.
Budapest is more than the Hereos Square and the Vaci utca!
The city offers endless cultural, wellness, and sight-seeing attractions from a visit to the opera or concert-halls, the Castle to the Basilica or taking boat trips on the Duna.
It has one of the most famous and largest Basilica in Central Europe which has recently been restored to its formal glory.
Hungarian State Opera House is a neorenaissance palace built in 1884 and is one of the city's most beautiful buildings. The Opera House seats 1200 and is open all year around, with special performances and events at the Christmas season culminating with a New Years Eve Ball. A must for Opera and Ballet lovers.
Millennium Underground Railway is Europe's second underground system was opened in 1896 on the occasion of the Millennium. It currently runs as the Metro 1 line.
You should set aside a day to visit the Castle District. Located on the other side of the river, and visible from the apartment, will take you all day, the key features being the Royal Palace, the St Mathias Church and the Halaszbastha (Fisherman's Bastion).
"20th August is the equivalent of the 4th July for the Hungarians, where Christians and the country celebrate that they are still 'standing' after the horrors of the Sovet occupation and Communism. Of course, you could watch the spectacular fire works from our penthouse's terrace - a free treat for you, as you will not have to pay top dollar just to see it and be amongst the crowds. Instead you will have your privacy sharing a glass or two of one of the many excellent Hungarian vines and sparkling proseccos.
It is our opinion, the clear, fresh air in the heart of the city is one of the many important features of this apartment, especially in the summer.
Budapest the capital of Hungary (10.1 million inhabitants), a land-locked country, with its beautiful setting and marvellous panoramic views is one of the most attractive European capitals. It was much admired in the Middle Ages as the following mediaeval saying shows "the most beautiful towns of Europe are Florence on the lowland, Venice on the water and Buda on the hills."
In modern times Budapest's outstanding qualities were recognised by UNESCO in 1987 placing the banks of the Danube and the Buda Castle district on the World Heritage List.
The Danube, the longest river in Central and Western Europe, leaves the hills behind and enters the lowlands just in the vicinity of Budapest. The hilly Buda was founded on the right bank and the low-lying Pest on the left. The Danube was, and, is still today an important water-way in this region.
With its rich and varied architecture and cultural heritage, Hungary's capital deserves its reputation as the 'Paris of Central Europe'.
Its identity is as complex as its people, a result of a mix races of the last 1000 years.
In St Istvan (Stephen) Park, just a 5 minutes walk away from the apartment, you will find typical Hungarian restaurants with the option of al fresco dining at reasonable prices.
2010 Budapest Summer Festival has ongoing concerts, dance, drama performances on the Margaret Island Open-Air stage, you can walk home from there!
Margaret Island is also the 'lung' of the city, where the 'budapestiek' go for a walk, and run around on the specially made soft rubber running track (approx 2km).
You will also find one of the largest Lido's, called Palatinus on the island with its beautiful parkland and a Sport Centre where European swimming and other sport competitions are held regularly.
Thrill-seekers get extra hours for flipping, soaring, whirling and tumbling until well after dark during the summer months at the 'Vidampark' Amusements Park, which celebrates its 60's anniversary this year is worth a visit.(District XIV).
In the winter, there is a very large ice-skating rink just behind the Hereos Square where you will have a unique skating experience complete with a mock Mediveal Castle.
Two museums face each other on Heroes Square, one is the Museum of Fine Arts, the other is the Mucsarnok, exhibiting mainly modern arts and design works.
Do not forget to ask for English speaking theatre performances and cinema information when arriving at the airport. Information is also available from centres around the city.
Palace West End City Centre is practically on your door step (15-20min walk from the apartment) with its hundreds of eateries, and shopping opportunities. There are also showings of English speaking films.

Stayed here in the week of the Sziget Festival in Budapest. Having visited Budapest for the past three years, we identified this part of town to rent an apartment in to allow us convenient access to both the festival site and city centre. We couldn't have found a better apartment for the price. Modern, secured access, lift up to 9th floor, nice open plan living space and a teriffic terrace to relax on. From the terrace you can see the Fisherman's Bastion and Mattias Church on the Buda side lit up at night. The pool in the basement is free to use and also has a sauna and steam room. This is a particularly good facility to have. There a small bar in the block which is good for drinks but too slow for food (pizzas for 4 people had to be grilled consecutively). However, there looked like plenty of other options nearby. There's a well stocked Spar only a couple of mins walk which sells everything you would expect, including British brands. A bus runs down the main road outside the apartment that takes you to a tube stop so it's very easy to get into Pest. It's not much of a walk to Margit Bridge anyway. The only small criticism I would have is the requirement for the agent to take you round showing you how everything works - not needed in the case of most people. He will also arrive at check-out time and inspect everything. Again, it's a bit unneccessary for adults to be subject to a plate and cutlery count before they can leave! Perhaps these checks can be carried out more discretely. Overall, the apartment is highly recommended.
We are delighted that you had such a good time staying in our apartment. We are constantly striving to provide excellent value for money, and believe, that our apartment with pool and gym is one of the very best in Budapest. Your comment regarding our agent's check out procedure is acknowledged. However, you would be surprised how much gets lost or damaged over the course of a season's letting. We are not talking the odd spoon here, but broken furniture! Thanks again for the great review!

"Brilliant city break in Budapest Penthouse river location"
Everything excellent, lovely apartment and good communication with Eva the owner, good tips and information beforehand. Miklos the agent extremely helpful. We all enjoyed our stay enormously and were only disappointed in that we were the only people unfortunately in the whole year to have the pool closed for essential maintenance during our week (however we were later given a discount because of this). As this was the principal reason we initially booked we were obviously disappointed but everything else was brilliant. We visited the city centre, walked and took metro, used the bus from the nearby bus station to visit Esztergom and have a wonderful 3 hour trip back on the Danube. An excellent day out and to be thoroughly recommended
Hello My Dear Guest, I thank you very much for the wonderful review you gave us, despite the very unfortunate circumstances of the pool closure. We (Miklos & I) try very hard to think of everything a guest would need to make an awsome holiday experience. Budapest is a lovely, old city with so much to do there, but as always one needs to get into the spirit of things and not let it spoiled by any unforseen event. You have managed to do that and more, enjoyed yourselves! Congratulation to all of you!

Stayed for 7 nights during May. Comfortable and quiet. Located in a residential area with easy access to small supermarket. 15 min. walk to the metro and a 10 min on the metro you are in the centre of Budapest. Decent sized balcony with good views of Margaret Island, the Danube and surrounding Eastern European apartment blocks. Was disappointed to be informed on arrival that "the air conditioning has not yet been maintained for this season", so was unavailable. We were offerred a 20 euro rebate for this. Really appreciated the spa to relax in at the end of a days sightseeing. Budapest is a wonderful city. So much to do and see.
Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. It is always helpful for both the owner and future guests. I am pleased that you were happy staying with us, except one little hitch, the lack of air-conditioning. I am very sorry about this.I was not made to be aware of this problem until you left. Should I have known about it, I would have taken action immediately. However, in my agent’s defence, I have to say, that you were there in the spring season and Hungary does not really get hot in this time of the year. On checking the weather, it was 23C-24C, which is considered a pleasant temperature by the locals. On the same topic: I was very pleased for you about the nice weather, as I seem to recall that your ‘special’ wish was warm weather on your booking form. Your disappointment may have been more to do with the fact that you felt that you paid for something, which was not delivered. To put your mind to rest, I did not charge you extra for the air-con as it came with the package and I offered you a € 25 off of the normal price. So you see, you had a good deal of paying only € 440.00 for a seven-day stay, which you must agree with me, was a bargain! On top of that, I refunded €20, which I did not charged for at the beginning. This was my way of saying ‘Sorry’. However, we do not agree on one point, where the apartment was rated ‘Average’. Well, a penthouse over looking the Danube with two bathrooms and spa facilities is not an average property in my book. It it were in London it would cost 1£m. Penthouse is the only apartment for rent which offers these services. I trust and hope that I have answered all your questions and apologised for any inconvenienced caused hoping that you still have faith in our services and will come back to us. If you do, I will give 10% off the listed price; accept in the months of July & August. Thanks aain for your valued custom. Mrs Eva Godden

"Great Location and Perfect Apartment for Small Family"
Easy walk to the metro. One block to a grocery and ATM. Fabulous bakeries within the block as well. Great view especially at night. Close to Margaret Island - bring your running gear if you are a runner - great cushioned trail all the way around the island. Pool and spa access although we didn't use it since we were busy sight seeing during the day and too pooped at night to swim.
Hello, Thank you for the very useful review and that you have enjoyed staying in our apartment. I will rectify the point you made to make this holiday experience even better. My Very Best Wishes Eva

"Great place for vacation/short rental"
We arrived to Hungary for a long stay with a family with 2 children. Thanks to Eva and Miklos, this very stressful time of family relocation we managed to turn into a holiday, during of which we relaxed and found a bigger place for a long time rent. We stayed in the apartment for 10 days, and really enjoyed that time. The location of the apartment is very convenient - close to everything, the quality of building and all the facilities is fine - we went to the pool, sauna and even to the small cafe in the building when we didn't have time to explore the city. The apartment is fully equipped, apart from hotels, you'll feel like at home there. So, this place can be highly recommended.
It was so good to have this great review! It helps us continually improve and keep the standards high. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us one of the best review!

"Fantastic apartment in a wonderful city"
My partner and I stayed with two friends in Eva's apartment over the New Year week. It is a fantastic apartment with wonderful views of the city. It is well equipped with everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable stay. The spa facilities in the building are a bonus and included in the price! The apartment was always warm and welcoming even on the coldest days. We spent each day sightseeing around the city and everything was readily accessible from the apartment. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. It is especially magical if you want to welcome in the New Year watching the fireworks from the outside terrace!
Hello My Dear Past Guest, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful review you gave us. I am sure that you know how important this for us (Miklos and I) and for the future guests! Thank you! Eva

"Penthouse Pleasure in Budapest"
We had a very enjoyable week in Budapest staying in Eva Godden's penthouse apartment which was clean,light and excellently equipped. We had perfect weather for our stay and enjoyed breakfast every day on the terrace overlooking the Danube and Margaret Island, watching the ships gliding along the river. We spent every day sight-seeing, making use of the excellent and efficient public transport system. A week's ticket was very reasonable at HUF 4,600, and if you are over 65, public transport travel is free throughout the country. We took the HEV to Szentendre, to revisit this pretty town, which was very easy. And at the end of each day we enjoyed relaxing in the spa: a swim, jacuzzi, sauna and hammam. The perfect way to end a day plus some sunbathing on the terrace in one of the recliners provided. The nearest ATM and the Spar supermarket are a few minutes walk from the apartment along Viza Utca, and there is a Tesco Express a little further along Nepfurdo Utca. Miklos was waiting for us when we arrived and was very pleasant, spoke excellent English and was most helpful.
Dear Past Guests, Thank you so much giving us a top score in your review! It makes us ( Mikos and I) very happy people. We work very hard to give the maximum to ALL our guests, but when it is appreciated like this it keeps us going in these very tough times. Thank You Eva

"luxury stay in residential area just opposite the Margaret island"
I had an excellent stay, I really felt welcome and the penthouse was exactly as described on the website. Eva and her agent Miklos are true professionals and are available for all questions and requests. Perfect location opposite the Margaret island, which has swimming pools and a running track of 5350m. Also beautiful for walks. A large Spar super market is 2min from the penthouse for all necessities, as well as cute local shops. For fresh produce you can go to Lehel Piniac which is a 15min walk away from the penthouse. The spa facilities of the apartment block are very good but the gym was a disappointment. I enjoyed the massage that was available at very low rates. Overall a well-equipped penthouse (eg. air conditioning, espresso machine) at a nice residential area of Budapest. Its down-side: a bit off-center, the Caste area, Andrassy street and the Opera are accessible either with the (shabby) metro or 50min walk.
Dear Past Guest, Thank you so much for taking time to write a review. It is always much appreciated as we constantly try to improve our services. I am so gald that you had a good stay and liked most things in our place and also found so many positive things to write about. You mentioning twice that you liked the location of the apartment, but it was off center. Well, it is. This is one of the good thing about it, as one has fresh air coming up from the Danube and not in down town amongs buildings. I do not know which metro you travelled to see the Opera House, but the so called, 'Little' metro is a real treat. It was the first metro in Europe and is renovated into its old glory. The main metro maybe a bit 'shabby' as you say, but very quick, 10-15 minutes ride to down town. Personally, I do not find it shabby, comparing it with our London metro,but of course, it is a personal thing. I am glad that you picked upon our value. Yes, this is one of our strongest point. We are the ONLY apartment in this city with FREE spa facilites and the package we offer. Thank you again for your valued opinion and we take your comments on board. I do hope that you will visit one of our other apartments in Italy or Cyprus. Best Wishes Eva

"Fabulous views, stunning City."
We spent a week exploring Budapest and thoroughly our stay at Penthouse Paradise Budapest. After a day out and about we were able to relax in the pool/jacuzzi. Once dusk fell the views from the balcony of the Royal Palace (Castle area) were fabulous. The apartment had everything you could possibly need, was clean, comfortable, and felt like home. We slept well and were extremely comfortable living there. There are a couple of green grocers within a few paces, a bakery and a supermarket (which was very good). A coffee shop and a bar which was very handy for lunch on our last day. Opposite the apartment is Margaret Island, you can walk there (it takes about 10-15 minutes) and once there can walk or take a bus, hire a bicycle and so on. There is so much to see and do for all ages on Margaret Island and obviously you can find places for eats and a drink. We did not go to MI until our last day, as we were so busy every day, but on a return visit would definitely make more time to spend there. I imagine on a summer's day it is absolutely glorious (as it was in April). There are so many "must dos" so good idea to pick up a copy of the DK Eyewitness travel guide Top Ten Budapest. The Parliament buildings were magnificent as was the Castle District, the Gellert Baths and so many other sites, oh nearly forgot the Opera House - do book tickets, 5 took a box for the price of one ticket at the Royal Opera House in London! This Opera House is absolutely stunning - seriously do not miss it (even if you are not an Opera fan - even my 12 year old enjoyed it!)! Getting around Budapest is easy with the metro, trams and buses. EU OAPs travel free by showing their passport. The metro is a must, so easy to use and the M1 yellow (orange) line dates back to 1896 so a real treat to travel on - you feel as though you have travelled back in time. Do visit Budapest and stay in Penthouse Paradise - highly recommend it!
Hello, Thank you you so much for your faboulous review. Much appreciated. We (myself and David, my agent) try very hard to deliver the best to our guests and it is always so rewarding to receive such a good notice. Eva
