GRAND BOULEVARD BALCONYApartment is very new in an old historical building, well equipped, clean, the living room window and balcony open to the boulevard, you can see the urban life, but the bedroom is located on the inner yard, so you can relax.

Budapest Pearl Grand ApartmentEverything in regards to this was seamless. Initial enquires were responded to promptly and with appropriate helpful information, booking was straight forward and confirmed quickly with helpful extras such as transfers recommended. The location of the apartment was ideal, it was in the heart of Pest, within walking distance of various sights and attractions. Yet it was secluded enough to allow peace and quiet from all the hustle of the city. The whole area has plenty of good bars and restaurants just a matter of minutes from the apartment as well as places to pick up groceries should guests want to cook. The actual apartment came with all modern conveniences and was very stylishly designed. It was the simple little additional touches that were the most inviting, such as towels pre folded for us along with simple things such as tea and coffee. The beds were comfortable and provided restful nights after a long days worth of exploring Budapest. The complementary Wi-Fi meant that my group was able to keep in contact with loved ones, but in addition, it allowed to ask for assistance from the landlord in arranging excursions. Again this was all timely and going well above what was required of him. For this, I am very grateful to him and will definitely be recommending that my friends and family contact him should they go on a similar trip in the future. I would gladly recommend this apartment and liaising with both Thomas and Anna has made the whole trip a wonderful experience.
DAPHNE DELUXExcellent apartment, one of the good in Budapest, super price and location. The owners are very nice people

What not to miss in Budapest
The emblem of the city is its castle, located on Buda Hill. There you can also find the famous sculpture of the Fisherman’s Bastion, the Lions Courtyard, the National Art Gallery and the Savoyai Terrace, with amazing views over the Danube and Pest. In Pest, you cannot miss a trip to the thermal baths, especially those of Szechenyi and Rudas. Andrássy Avenue is of such beauty that it was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and it leads to Heroes Square, a square with buildings of great architectural and historical value. A building that stands above the rest though is its Parliament, on the banks of the Danube. Of smaller size is the Synagogue on Dohány Street,a part of the city’s Jewish legacy which can also be seen in the memorial of the Shoes on the Danube and in its Museum of Terror, which relates the different eras of terror that the city has suffered throughout its history.
