Welcome to our clean, bright, private studios and 1 & 2 bedroom apartments in the centre of Budapest. We're steps from the shopping / walking street, and 90 metres from a metro station. We're easily accessed from the Budapest airport via public transport (with one changeover from bus to metro). The train stations are even closer; you can reach us using a single ticket. Parking here can be challenging. For this reason, we recommend convenient public transport. Once here, no car is required as dozens of Budapest attractions are within a 15- minute walk. Our residential apartment building is authentic to Budapest and faces a common courtyard. All our apartments are extremely quiet. Guests often comment on our unique platform beds, which were designed by us and handcrafted by a skilled carpenter. All of our apartments are fully furnished, with kitchen appliances including an oven, electric stove, and utensils. We provide a coffee machine, water boiler and a washing machine-so you can pack a bit lighter! Linens and towels are also included. Our apartment is fully wired with technologies like an LED TV with cable channels and high-speed Internet. We live nearby, speak English, and are always available to help. When you arrive, we'll personally walk you through the apartment and give our local recommendations. We hope to see you soon.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Perfect location just next to the Váci utca. Bars, restaurants, shopping, nightclubs, everything in walking distance. For the price unbeatable. The apartment is clean and well equipped. János was a perfect host. We definitely come back!

We Are a couple Who went to Budapest for a dental treatment, and our appartment was booked through the dentist, so we did'nt expect much. Boy were we wrong It was a huge appartment fully equiped with everything you could ask for and more, even an espresso machine. We could easyly live there. But the appartment was not even the Best part of our stay, it was Janos, the owner. He was amazing, really Nice and extremely helpful with everything we needed, where to eat, what to se and he took care of All the booking and reservations. We cant give enough stars for this place and owner, we can highly recommend this. Alfi and Maggie

The location was good, but I didn’t use the kitchen at all, so it was a bit wasted on me. I could see it being a big benefit for those staying longer or dining in. Same with the washing machine. And very poor lighting at night. Only very bright ceiling lights. A comfortable bed and good shower.

We had a wonderful time in Budapest all thanks to this extremely conveniently located apartment. The host Janos was super helpful and sweet. He took the time and effort to explain the city and things we could do.He gave us some super packages for the hop and hop off bus tour and other day trip that we took at a good discount.The apartment was clean and stocked up with everything one could need over and above the basics.From utensils to coffee to even detergent. The apartment was walking distance from most attractions and Christmas markets. Would recommend it to anyone who plans to visit Budapest. Total value for money.

Wow - very very impressed with Janos, the apartment, and the location. 4.9 stars! I'm sorry, but I have to deduct 1/10th of a star for the slightly uncomfortable bed. Otherwise, the washer and the detergent was a nice touch! The apartment also included a refrigerator. The Wifi was fast too. Above all, Janos made sure to point out where to eat, where to go, and if I needed anything to contact him. I did eventually contact him if I could get a couple of train tickets I forgot to print out though. Thank you Janos!

The apartment was well located, in the heart of Pest, one block from the metro station. It is in an old building, which the owner of the 2nd floor renovated to rent for short stays. I guess it lets you imagine how people lived behind USSR rule. It was a good stay. Good WiFi. It had a small kitchenette, an small bathroom and a washing machine with an strange technology (but it worked). Even though it is not ugly I think it might not be for everyone. The host was friendly, as in super-helpful; gave us very good tips and was always available. I would return!

Leading up to our stay, Virag was extremely helpful and responsive in making our reservation and offering tips for our arrival in Budapest and our stay. The day we arrived, she personally met us in front of the apartments. She then gave us a thorough orientation to the apartment and helped us plan our time in Budapest. All of this in flawless English! The apartment was impeccably clean, nicely furnished and fully equipped for our needs. The location is also perfect, right in the heart of the city. We felt we had definitely found the best accommodations for our visit to Budapest!

My 15 year old son and I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of August and we LOVED it! The owner is amazing and super helpful and the apartment is spacious and adorable! We loved having the little kitchen and especially the washing machine since we had already been traveling for 10 days! The location is quiet but next to everything! There is a subway stop 1 min away (which is one stop from most connections) and a more central subway stop less than a 10 min walk away so we mostly used that one. There is a grocery store also 1 min away for supplies and lots of restaurants in the area. The trundle beds are adorable and there was lots of room to organize stuff with closets and a dresser. You could probably stay here for several weeks and be comfortable! We were happy to spread out for a few days and have more room than the first 10 days of our trip at 3 different places. Oh - and the price was great too!

We stayed in Katona for 3 days. The hosts are really good and helpful. The room has all facilities and also includes guides as well as map to plan your day. Host virag was very helpful and provided us boat cruise tickets as well. The location of the apartment is very nice. Vaci utca street, st. Stephen bazilika, river Danube boat cruise are walking distance. Will definitely return to stay there if we get a chance.
