“Wonderful Apartment”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Thanks to Anita for the welcome, wine and arranging transfers. The Piano apartment was perfect for 4 friends on a 4 day break. Location at the foot of Castle Hill with easy access to Metro and tram is ideal. The terrace overlooking the Danube and Parliament is perfect for breakfast and evening drinks with a floodlit city to watch. V quiet area.
Spacious, modern and well equipped, we were very impressed. 95 steps meant we were fitter as well! Don't be put off by the slightly shabby, but very typical building.
Attilla who drove us to and from the airport gave us a tourist guide and history lesson - fascinating and a mine of information.
There is a 24 hour small shop and a superb bakery within 5 minutes walk

Although the building is not in great shape the apartment is is really comfortable and pretty. The view is just gorgeous. The service was personalized and very reliable. We were very close to the metro station. I really enjoyed this place.

We have just spent three days in Budapest and loved every minute, especially our stay at Piano Apartments. We had expected to be in the original apartments but were given the newest apartment right near the Chain Bridge. It was their newest apartment, recently renovated on the third floor of an old heritage building. The position was fantastic - one tram stop from Batthayany Ter metro station and one block from the Chain Bridge and the funicular to Buda Castle. There were a number of really good local restaurants serving authentic and cheap Hungarian food, and a 24hr minimart one block away. Our train from Vienna did not arrive until after 4pm but Lucy was waiting for us to help us settle in to the apartment. The complimentary water, snacks and wine was a lovely and welcoming touch and the detailed tourist map very useful for people who had never been to Prague before. For anyone planning trip to Prague, we would definitely recommend staying at the Piano Apartments, especially this one.

I was looking for a well-priced apartment in the centre of old Buda and found this gem...
-perfect location in the centre of old Buda less than 2km from the castle and Fisherman's Bastion, few minutes walk from the Mammut shopping centre, close to the river/bridges.
-beyond amazing view... this was a complete bonus for us and I still miss the view!
-very spacious apartment... we had 4 adults in the apartment but it can comfortably sleep 6 or more
-apartment was clean, new, and very modern... also a bonus since I was not expecting such a well designed and high quality apartment
-kitchen was fully loaded right down to ground coffee and tea to drink in the morning! (Thanks Anita!)
-bathroom was very big, clean, and functional... actually that is a beyond luxurious bathroom for European standards!
-owner, Anita, was very kind, helpful, and accommodating! Thanks again Anita for helping us with figuring out parking!

Overall, for us this was the perfect apartment in our new favourite city. I highly recommend this apartment, especially if your plans revolve around old Buda like ours did. The price is great too!

We stayed in the apartments for 3 nights and found them to be excellent.
They are newly renovated to a modern and clean style, the air con was amazing especially as we stayed in July and it was HOT, and the views accross to Budapest were fantastic.
We stayed for the Hungarian Formula one, and would recomend the apartments, I will go back as we didnt get to see anywhere near as much of Budapest as we would have liked.

I stayed at this apartment with a group of friends and all I can say is that this renting experience was definitely the best of my life. Anita organized everything: cleaning, airport transfers and a warm welcome at our arrival. The apartment is located on the 3rd floor of an old style building (be prepared to walk more or less 90 steps because there is no elevator in the building) offering one of the best views in Budapest: from the terrace you have a splendid view on the River Danube and the Parliament House. Beside this the apartment is fully furnished (AC in all rooms very useful during hot summer days) and extremely well located (5 minutes walk from Batthyany Square and less than 10 minutes walk from the Buda Castle). I will definitely come back and would recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a memorable stay in Budapest.

Location is perfect, close to the historical sites, underground station, and other public transportations. Everything are in very short walking range. The view from the apartment is fabulous, directly to the Parliament House and the Danube River. Rooms are bright, clean and large. Cafes and restaurants are also close. Would come back again!
