The apartment is in Pest and from the balcony you can see the buda hills and the river Danube. The apartment is within walking distance to all transports and shops. The apartment has a kitchen with everything you could wish for and yes that does include a Toaster!... Double bed. Lounge with a Dvd player, Flatscreen tv, and a great selection of dvds and music. Bathroom which has a shower, toilet and wash basin. Towels, soap, Hairdryer, Iron and ironing board are all included in the this wonderful river view apartment.

As Ive just recently stayed at this apartment, I thought Id post a bit about it here. Having travelled many times to Budapest, Ill start out by saying that apartments are generally a much better deal than hotels.
You can find some real bargains in great locations that cost much less than a comparable hotel in the same area. Having said that, Ive ended up booking somewhere really awful without having seen it first, which is why Im posting this. Of all the places I have stayed in hotels or otherwise - this one is definitely the best.
Its in a great location, literally a few yards from one of the main pedestrian cafes and shopping streets in Budapest, and by the river Danube. Because its just off on a side road, it is very quiet despite the central location, but is near several transport links to other main areas of the city. It has a balcony, from which you get a gorgeous view of the river and some lovely architecture, and the flat itself is a very good sized spacious studio. The bathroom and kitchen are both excellent and well equipped (not always the case in Hungary), and the whole apartment is maintained to a really high standard. It has the sort of feeling like a home from home.
The decor is lovely, everything was spotless when I arrived, and the apartment owners are unbelievably nice, even after I had kept them waiting for over an hour after I misunderstood where we were meeting. They provided complimentary wine, mineral water, milk, jam, olives, pasta etc.. Basically, I cannot recommend this place enough.
The combination of a beautiful apartment, perfect location, very reasonable price and really lovely owners makes this a real find.
