Large (110 sq m) classic apartment in a beautiful, restored building on Kiraly utca, District 6. The apartment is our holiday home and is on the third floor (no lift). It has high ceilings, spacious rooms and original parquet flooring. It is a light and airy flat with new furniture and clean décor. The apartment has partial air conditioning and two bathrooms (one with shower, one with bath). The fitted kitchen is equipped with fridge/freezer, electric hob, oven, washing machine, microwave, coffee maker, kettle etc. The large lounge has a TV (no cable) and DVD player. There is no WIFI at the flat - there are so many hotspots and internet cafes within minutes of the apartment that we have never needed it (including at Starbucks about one minute away).
The location is great - the apartment itself is on the top floor of the building and is quiet, but within five minutes walk are dozens of restaurants (including many in the famous Gozsdu Courtyard), local supermarkets, cafes, shops, bakeries, tram and bus links etc. Around the corner is a traditional market which is open six days per week, selling fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, bread, flowers etc. Opposite the market is a pleasant local park with plenty of seating, mature trees, bandstand and cafe.
Most of the major tourist attractions are within easy walking distance of the apartment. Andrassy Avenue is less than five minutes walk away and you can be at the Opera House, St Stephen's Basilica, Deak Ferenc Square, Jewish Synagogue etc, each within a 15-20 minutes walk. Even closer (three minutes walk from the apartment) is the newly restored art nouveau Franz Liszt Academy of Music, which holds concerts and performances on most days. Around the corner from the apartment is the Corinthia Budapest hotel, with its lovely spa, pool and gym facilities which can be used on a pay as you go basis. Heroes square, the City Park, zoo and Szechenyi thermal baths are about 30 minutes walk away at one end of Andrassy Avenue.
