“Amazing place!!!” (Reviewed May 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015)
“Travelled to Budapest for the second year running with 6 friends.
Arrived at the apartment and was shown around by the owner’s sister in law. She was extremely friendly. The apartment itself was in spotless condition, 3 perfect rooms, 3 perfect bathrooms and a nice balcony.
The area is perfect for everything we needed. Shop right below us supplied us with everything we needed for the week. The Gyro food shop opposite was the best we’ve had! It was perfect location for the ruin bars (about 5 minute walk) and all other bars and clubs are within walking distance. All in all a great apartment complimented by its closeness to everything.
Would recommend to anyone, and will certainly be coming back to CityNook if we return to Budapest for a third time!”
CityNook is a premium, centrally-located, well-appointed family apartment in the heart of Budapest just five minutes walk away from Blaha Metro station, local amenities and the City's best attractions.
We've also designed the apartment as an ideal venue for special celebrations. We're proud to offer a spacious living area, along with three comfortable bedrooms and three spotlessly-clean bathrooms, so that our guests can enjoy celebrating together while maintaining their privacy.
The building, on the 3rd floor of a traditional Hungarian city building, is well maintained and has an elevator with an internal courtyard that is very quiet and shady. Each of the three bedrooms (one with a balcony) has its unique and characteristic decoration matched with a similarly coloured bathroom. The "Cookie" room looks out on the courtyard and has a double bed on a gallery and a single bed beneath it. The gallery double bed can also be made into two singles with the use of a divider, single duvets are also provided. This room has an en suite shower. The "Carrot" room is our biggest room, perfect for families with children. It has two queen beds which convert to sofas and a single futon bed and has its own designated bathroom with a bath/shower. This room has a balcony looking out to the street. The "Olive" room has two single beds and a double futon and also has its own designated bathroom with shower and toilet. A lounge area with a large dining table makes up the shared facilities and it is a focal point for our guests. Adjacent to this, is a fully equipped kitchen with a 4 hob gas cooker, microwave and grill, washing machine and dishwasher. We also have a large fridge with freezer compartment. Each room had its own flat screen TV and WiFi is available which covers the entire apartment.
The apartment can cater for up to 12 people (by arrangement) either as a group or shared between guests with the assured convenience of all guests having their own privacy if and when required with lockable rooms and bathrooms.

The city of Budapest is divided by the Danube into the 'hilly' Buda and the 'flat' Pest. Both sides have their unique attractions and the beautiful bridges are well worth a walk across to appreciate the river and its surroundings.
The apartment on Dohany Street, District 7, is situated in the very heart of Budapest City centre, close to the historical monuments, the pedestrian area and the banks of the Danube.
The inner half of district 7 was the historic Jewish quarter of Pest. The Dohány Street Synagogue, the largest functioning Jewish temple in Europe, is located in this district. This historic quarter of Budapest contains several synagogues, bakeries, restaurants, bars and hotels. Located close to the City Centre, two minutes walk from the Blaha Lujza Metro and trams and buses on Erzsebet Korut.
The summer attractions in Budapest include the Formula 1 Grand Prix and the Sziget music festival (11th to 16th August), both easily reachable via the excellent public transport system in Budapest.
