AAAA Stylish historic flat with fire-place and balcony!

For a short holiday , a weekend trip to Budapest or maybe a longer vacation, we can offer you this exceptional holiday apartment in the heart of Budapest. It is for rent all year long. This beautiful, just refurbished apartment is a part of what was originally the building owner's home and has miraculously retained most of the original features dating back to 1898, date of completion of the house. It is composed of 2 very large rooms (over 40 m2 each) , one a bedroom and the other the living-room. The 14 feet high ceilings with wonderful moldings, the period stained-glass windows by Miksa Roth, leading artist of the time, the period onyx fireplace, the gilded wood-paneling and an ornate venetian mirror all contribute to making a stay here a special experience, allowing to enjoy a feel of the past and the comfort of today.
- The whole apartment was just renovated: the brand-new kitchen is fully equipped (washer-drier / dish-washer, etc.) as is the bathroom. The decoration is stylish and soothing, in soft tones of yellow and brown. The apartment is on 2 levels: downstairs, a sauna and a small room for resting afterwards will soon be installed.
- The living-room, which faces south, opens onto a small terrace equipped with a table and chairs, from where you can watch the world go by on the square and park downstairs. The apartment is on the first floor of a beautifully ornate, if somewhat run-down 3 floor house equipped with an elevator. It can sleep up to 6 people.
The holiday apartment is very central, on a square off the circular boulevard of Budapest (körút). The trams 4 and 6, which run without interruption day and night stop right on the square. One metro line is a 5 minute walk and the other one is 2 tram stops away.
There are also several buses within a few minutes walk, among them number 7 that takes you straight to the Gellért Baths or in the otehr direction, to Keleti station.
We have prepared detailed information sheets for our guests with our personal tips about the city. In the apartment , you will also find numerous guide books and a lot of material about the city and current events.

This apartment is quite extraordinary! The two huge rooms (bedroom and living room) are almost overwhelming in their size but really comfortable, warm and welcoming. The kitchen is modern and more than meets one's needs. The most memorable features are the painted glass windows in the bedroom (historically very interesting - and overlooking the inner courtyard) and the view over the Square through the living room windows. Transport (all forms) is so convenient - literally on the doorstep! Despite the city location, this is an idyllically peaceful apartment and a pleasure to return to after a busy day. Unfortunately I was not able to meet the owner, Eliane, as I was often too busy elsewhere. But she had prepared lots of useful information for her visitors, whether sight-seeing or dining out and her Visitor's Book was full of grateful and admiring comments by her many visitors. I was very glad indeed that I, too, was able to live, even for such a short time, in such a splendid historic residence. Many thanks, Eliane!

Great style appartment! Appartment very worm - heating works well. In the neighbourhood of our favorite food market at Rakoczi Ter. Lot of space in the rooms, kitchen utensils enough. Internet should work better - we have to use our mobile internet.

The booking was very smooth, Eliane was very helpful indeed. The apartment is so beautiful, absolutely stunning and the location was perfect as it was so close to the tram stop. The kitchen was very well equipped and the apartment was very clean. Our flight was delayed and We were very grateful for the taxi from the airport that Eliane arranged for us. I absolutely loved the apartment and I would definitely return with my family.

Parquet, moulures, très beau mobilier, vitraux art déco....magnifique appartement qui nous fait remonter dans le temps tout en étant très cosy et confortable (petit feu de cheminée constant dans le salon, cuisine très bien équipée, grande salle de bain) et on ne boude pas ce plaisir là non plus après de longues journées de déambulation dans Budapest.... Bref, un séjour mémorable en grande partie grâce à cet hébergement idéalement situé dans le centre ville dans un quartier sympa et au pied de tous les transports en commun (métro, tram). Merci Eliane de faire partager ce bel endroit!

This apartment was in a fantastic spot - the metro literally just outside and a great market next door to get supplies. Our host, Elliane, was incredibly helpful and had left pages of information about Budapest that was extremely useful ...... about cafes, markets, museums, public transport, etc.. It was VERY hot when we there ( 32-25 degrees each day) and the nights didn't cool down. Thankfully the apartment was very cool because of its high ceilings. I did find a fan in the basement that used on the last night to help us sleep in the heat... but everyone in Budapest would have had the same issue. The kitchen had everything you could need - the only minor issue was that the freezer iced up over our time there and the door to the freezer wouldn't shut properly We loved our stay and would recommend it to others . Thankyou Elianne

Wonderful apartment, and a very special place to stay! It´s a real gem in a city where there´s no shortage of high quality rental apartments. If you want to feel more like in a (very spacious) Duke´s Suite of a luxury hotel than in a standard flat, this is the place to be. It´s also a nice neighborhood, and a great view from the balcony. Btw, the little cafe round the corner offers great breakfasts.

This apartment was just perfect. It was huge and had lovely period detail. The photographs did not do it justice. It was very comfortable for the four of us and we found nothing to criticise. It was also incredible value for money. Eliane emailed us some detailed information which, despite three previous visits to Budapest, we found very helpful for our stay. I can thoroughly recommend it as in the past, we have found decent apartments quite hard to find. The apartment had everything you could need, even a nespresso machine. Future bookers will be lucky enough to find a metro station right outside the door as it is just about to open (although we prefer to walk everywhere on holiday as we like to see as much as possible). A truly memorable stay was had, with the apartment being at the top of the list. What a gem and thank you Eliane!

We have just returned from spending six nights in this well located, very stylish and beautiful apartment in Pest. This was our third stay. The location is very handy (just a minute's walk from the front door) for trams 4 and 6 that run along Jozsef korut, and only one tram stop away from the red line underground station at Blaha Lujza ter. The apartment is very quiet and tranquil. There is an elevator. The living room and bedroom are enormous with beautifully detailed, high plaster ceilings, nice lighting, a lovely big marble fireplace and gorgeous stained glass panelling amongst the very tasteful and stylish decor; a lot of love, care and attention to detail have gone into the refurbishment and look of this apartment. It has a very special ambiance. The seating in both rooms is very comfortable. There is a very well equipped kitchen. In the immediate vicinity, there is a big market hall and some very nice little cafes and restaurants serving up some excellent food at good prices. Eliane is an excellent, very attentive and friendly owner. She is very efficient at communicating at every step of the process. We took advantage of Eliane's fair offer of a taxi service to and from the airport, which was also very efficient and reliable. We always thoroughly enjoy a stay at this wonderful apartment and we are already looking forward to getting back there. Many thanks to Eliane and her sterling service and accommodation.

This flat was beautifully decorated and well-supplied as a short term rental. Everything was very clean, it was well-located and very comfortable for my family (parents with a young adult daughter). We made excellent use of the balcony, kitchen and the proximity to the Racozi Market for supplies. The #4 and #6 trams stop right at the front of the Racozi Ter which made it really convenient to go to Buda and other farther destinations. But, walking from the apartment to the Great Synagogue, Opera House, across the Chain or Liberty bridges was very simple and through nice streets with beautiful buildings. Elaine was leaving town just as we arrived but the instructions and resource material she had was really helpful. We would stay there again and look forward to seeing Budapest again.

Eliane's apartment is beautiful, bright, clean and very central. It has all you need. I adored fretwork on the ceilings, marble fireplace and soft sofas. I was impressed by stained-glass window in the bedroom! And it was so quiet at nights. Eliane is extremely friendly, helpful person, and she is, certainly, such a genius of communications. She gave useful recommendations about the city, change money and cultural life. There was a personal City Guide in apartments composed by herself for guests. I followed the directions and it was the best! Besides, many guides and books on different languages were in apartment for use. There are Market Hall, chinese shop and nice cafe right near the apartment. I loved the yellow trams with which I could get to any place of the city, tram stop right near the apartments too. This is exeptional experiance to live there. I’d like to return someday to experience the joy of being there.

The flat is a gem, giving you the feel a grandeur of gone times, békebeli as a Hungarian would say. The flat is equipped with everything you would ever need, and Elaine left instructions to explore the city to its best. Any problem occurs she is there to sort it out. I would recomend this place to anyone who wants to see Budapest even with little ones( we had our 1 and 4 year old with us).

We were collected at the airport as arranged and taken to the wonderful apartment which was much more than we had even hoped for. Stunning, unusual, immaculate,warm, well equipped and comfortable. All the directions for sightseeing were clear and concise and we appreciated all the unusual suggestions as well as all the popular tourist spots.The tram on the doorstep was easy and so quick and walking was a pleasure and an adventure, as we kept discovering new haunts! We went to The Opera , the modern ballet, the spa , museums, etc. etc and found eating out very good and very reasonable.castle hill There was nothing to dislike and everything to like.

The Eliane's apartment is located at the Pest side of Budapest, in front of the future metro line's station (M4) Rakoczi ter, to a walking distance from the central Blaha ter. Remarkably decorated in an individual secession style (art-deco), this charming flat, situated on the 1st floor, is about ~100 m2 and intended for 2 - 6 persons. The apartment is furnished with satellite TV, as well as a washing machine, a dishwasher and a coffee machine. Public transport connections (the famous tram 6 and bus 7), post office and grocery shops, as well as market (with a daily choice of fresh vegetables and fruits) are within a short walk. Cafés, finest restaurants, cake shops and Mc Donald's can also be reached in a few minutes on foot. A public parking is located near to the building. The Hungarian State Opera, Mu-Pa (frequent concerts) and theatres, and also the two main rail stations (Nyugati Pu and Keleti Pu) may be reached within 15 minutes by trams and metro. Last but not the least, Eliane welcomes you with a great kindness and her exhaustive knowledge of Budapest meets all the expectations you can desire.

Everything that was written before is true. The difference with a "standard" very valuable flat : the care you will receive from Eliane; you 'll feel not only in a nice flat but taken by the hand by a friend in an unknown (?) city using a very odd language. That makes the difference.

This is a charming and well kept apartment in an interesting and well situated neighborhood, very easy access to the center by the trams plus a good covered market nearby. The square outside is undergoing renovation and will have a metro stop as I understand. The owner has provided everything you need including her own guide to the city. We would gladly stay there again. The living room and sleeping room are big and there is good heat if you need it. We were also grateful for the fine taxi connection , pick up at the airport and to take us back to the airport.

L'appartement grand, très agréable et bien situé par rapport aux endroits intéressants à visiter. À côté du tramway et pas loin du métro. Très bien équipé. Excellent accueil de la part de madame Pickermann, la propriétaire, qui a fourni beaucoup de renseignements et conseils qui facilitent les visites et permettent des intéressants découvertes. Si je reviens à Budapest, je reviens aussi dans cet appartement.

The sitting room is enormous and fabulous. Our teenager was happy to sleep there. There are 3 rooms: sitting room, bedroom, kitchen (plus bathroom). This apartment has a lot going for it in terms of location, value and also faded elegance of former times. For me, it was just it too dark, both in the bedroom behind the sitting room and in the kitchen. The lack of light and heavy wardrobes lend a somber atmosphere. They both do have some natural light from Windows to the courtyard. In winter, this would matter less. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were fine but the linens average. Shower is over the bath. Wifi good. Quiet in the evenings and beside metro and trams. Strolling distance to Cafe New York. Great local restaurant on the square 2 doors down. I would recommend the apartment given the value and as it is accurately described on the web site.
