My husband and I spent two weeks in Peter's apartment. It is situated on the 4th floor of a building a block away from the Danube. The main entrance hallway off the street is a little scruffy and the lift is a miniature cubicle that barely fits oneself and a suitcase but once the door to this apartment is opened all misgivings vanish. It is well renovated - sleek and sexy and sophisticated and stylish. It is a little more compact than it appears in the photos but still manages to exude a sense of spaciousness. And it is furnished with quality. Although we struggled with the odd Hungarian pillows. It could not be more perfectly suited to touring Budapest. Everything that is considered a tourist" must do" is within a 3 km radius. Step outside the main entrance and the fairy tale Parliament buildings are clearly in view to your left. Turn the corner and the Danube with views to the Chain Bridge, the Palace and Fisherman's Bastion unfold before you. The street itself is quiet and a grocery store is just around the other block. Free wi fi was an added boon. The apartment is fully self contained with a dishwasher and combined washer/dryer. We dutifully trotted into the allegedly fabulous Gresham Palace to ogle the ostentatious and smirked at those silly enough to cram themselves into one bedroom. We considered them deprived compared to our opulent space. Why settle for deprivation if you can enjoy the absolute freedom of a whole apartment to yourselves. And Peter and his staff ensure you are welcomed and worried about fit to make you regal. We climbed those blasted 4 flights of stairs every evening though to mitigate the damage of feasting on the irresistible pastries available on every block.
Budapest itself is a gem of a city.
