Reviewed 9 December 2013

Well located, spacious, bright apartment in Buda side, close to so many attractions and public transport stations. The view is unbeatable, the staff (Anita) is very helpfull, the complimentery wine is very kind! The only minor there is no lift, but the view to the Parliament building is worth the effort to the 3rd. level!

We had an excellent stay at the cheapest price. We were are not afraid of nice walks so we could go by walking from Buda (Royal Castle, Gerset baths and pas, Parliament) to Pest (Jewish neighbourhood, kerts, Basilic, Opera, Contemporary musem).

The apartment is vety well located, in the part of Buda of Budapest and I could see the Parlament from it. It was big, cleaned and I got a marvelous reception from Anita and Lucy. There is also a kitchen and bedrooms has a great space.

Everything was fantastic. Maybe because the atmosphere of the house fitted the impression which Budapest gives you in general. I loved the apartment, notwithstanding we had the view on the inner yard. We enjoyed authenticity and a touch to the lives of common citizens to which we sometimes were eyewitnesses. Great apartment and a very warm welcome. I can not remember a thing of which we were in need. Every detail has been forseen. A lot of space, good heating system, comfortable beds. I will keep very warm memories of our stay at Piano. Thank you for everything.

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.
