Historical background
The apartment is located in the heart of Budapest in one of the buildings classed as national monuments, built in 1732. It also gave home to the capital’s very first café, as remembered by a tablet by the building’s front entrance. From 1945 the apartment’s residents were the Count Kőnigsegg family and it became the property of the family’s descendant Mária Csilla Simonyi and her husband János Lehoczky in the mid-80’s. The apartment is still furnished with her belongings, including the paintings and original and replica engravings that recapture the atmosphere of the old, civil milieu. In the 1950s the apartment’s size allowed four generations to live together here. In 2008 it was fully renovated, and the unique, hand-made wrought iron chandeliers, lamp-brackets and floor lamp were installed – all made by acclaimed Hungarian artist and blacksmith János Lehoczky, and his son, metal restorer and blacksmith Tivadar Lehoczky.

Our family of three has been traveling for two months of a year-long trip, staying in Airbnbs almost exclusively. Kristina's place is hands-down our favorite so far. The house itself is beautiful (better than the pictures), the location could not be better (quiet, yet close to everything), and Kristina is a helpful and generous host. The bottle of wine and chocolates on our pillows made us feel like royalty! The fully equipped kitchen allowed us to cook a few meals at home and we were able to do laundry before we left. And, my son absolutely loved the Jacuzzi bathtub. I can't recommend this place highly enough! Thanks to Kristina!

I have stayed in airBNBs all in over 20 countries, and I can say with authority that Kristina's place is top notch. Location : excellent -- near many bridges and touristic areas. The space : beautiful, and has tons of character. This is an authentic Budapest apartment, rather than some cookie cutter flat. In addition : Kristina has done a great job of including tons of apartment and kitchen amenities. Host: Kristina is very communicative and easy to work with . Thanks for the great accommodation Kristina !

We had a lovely stay in Kristina's apartment! It is such a beautiful place, feels very safe and it is so easy to get to everything in Budapest! Kristina is a great host, she has thought of everything and we felt right at home. The flat has cooking facilities, lots of storage space and lovely double height ceilings which make it feel so grand! Also thanks to Kristina for introducing me to a hair diffuser- my hair was so curly!! Thanks for having us!

It is a nice room like a European castle. If you go to Budapest, you should stay at least once. Cleanliness and facilities are substantial.
