The space

You will not find a more luxurious, more beautiful and better placed apartment in central Budapest. It is located in the most prestigious part of Budapest (best part of District V) a stone's throw from Parliament, and the most beautiful square Szabadsag where the American Embassy resides. It is also a short walk to Margaret Island for relaxation and exercise.

The building itself with lift is in immaculate condition externally and internally adding to the experience of the apartment itself.

It features a dedicated home office so is particularly good for those travelling on business or simply wish to have a dedicated space to catch up on work and emails as required.

The kitchen features a five hob, three electric oven range cooker with dedicated dining area in the stylish hallway area so is wonderful for evening entertainment.

The main living room has a new bluetooth enabled media and music player system along with smart TV.

It is very unusual to find an apartment with A/C in Budapest due to restrictions on installation but this apartment comes with full hot cold function. It also has a back up electric hot water heating system in the event of a problem with the main boiler.

Both bathrooms are en-suite with the master bathroom having both roll top bath with mixer and separate shower.

Architectural features include period illumination, door fittings and artwork from Buenos Aires, designer furniture from UK providers, period bathroom fittings from Victorian Plumbing, parquet, mouldings, french style wall panelling and vitreaux.

Guest access

All of this luxurious space is at your disposal. Either I personally or one of my assistants will be there to greet you. I also have an airport pick-up service which depending on plane times can be arranged in advance of your arrival.

Interaction with guests

I am in constant touch and have another property in Budapest also on airbnb where you can see from the reviews that I respond promptly to guest requests and provide good recommendations on where to go , cafes and dinner places.

Other things to note

Apartment features wireless hi-fi, smart tv, dual heating and hot water back up to avoid the chance of a major problem and a dedicated home office should you need time and space to do some work

Internet and media

The internet router is located in the home office. To ensure maximum coverage it is essential this remains on the ledge by the stained glass window. Network is Internet router upc (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), password YEGHGMJN

The smart TV has Netflix account, simply switch on, select menu and then scroll for Netflix and choose account “stephen”, there are also children’s channels and youtube. There is no dedicated cable channel service.

To use the hi-fi system, switch on and then using the “mode” function (second from left) press through the functions until you reach “BT” for bluetooth. The connect your streaming device such as phone or tablet and select samsung micro 12d954

There is a TP-Link internet repeater plugged into the wall. This is essential for achieving decent wi-fi coverage in the living room and main bedroom particularly for the smart TV so please do not disconnect or move socket locations.

Heating and hot water

The thermostat to switch the heating on and off is on the wall in the hallway next to the main bathroom. The Honeywell thermostat shows the ambient temperature, simply press the arrow buttons up or down to lower or increase the temperature.

There is back up heating through the three air conditioning units located in the living room and bedrooms. To switch on ensure first the display on the remote control is showing the right mode which is the “sun” icon then simply switch on. It normally takes 3-5 minutes in standby mode before the heating comes on.

The hot water is instant from the boiler located in the loft above the second bedroom. If the pressure drops there is a filling loop which feeds the boiler which should be switched on for no more than a couple of seconds and then switched off again.

Both showers feature an “anti-scald” feature. This is a small button on the shower mixer which cuts supply to the hot water if there is a temporary interruption of cold. If the button is in the “high” position simply depress and simultaneously turn the mixer tap anti-clockwise

The main water supply switch off is under the shelf space in the cupboard immediately to the left of the of the kitchen sink. To access take out the shelf and then using a small screwdriver insert to the valve and turn to shut off.


The electrolux reverse action tumble dryer is a condensor model so it traps the water in a plastic tank on the left hand side of the machine. Once this fills up (it wont go on if its full) you need to simply take out and drain water and then re-insert. It is also important to take out any fluff from the filter at the front of machine to ensure it operates correctly.

Aeg lavanat prototex washing machine - the simplest program is the 20 minutes fast program followed by a 17 minute spin.Because of its location it is difficult to open the panel to put in the wash liquid so its easiest simply to enter directly in the machine.

To start the daewoo microwave simply open the door as this triggers it switching on and select program.


The apartment has 3-phase electricity. The fuse box is located in the hallway to the right hand side of the entrance door. If any part of the electricity cuts first check the lower box to see if a single phase has cut and then switch on again. If it is simply an individual item that has loss of electricity power then check the upper fuse box and see which switch has dropped and switch on again, all are labelled according to function.


Lowering the blinds at night helps reduce street noise and also helps heat insulation.

Generally speaking no loud noise is tolerated in Hungary after the cut-off of 9pm

Plastic and paper should be separated for recycling. All bins are on the ground floor rear of the building


Access to the building is using the blue magnetic key device which should be touched or held close to the street buzzer panel. The apartment is located on the third floor. Take the lift to the third floor and on coming out turn right and the entrance door is on the corner. Guests can buzz up from the street typing in “23” and the intercom button automatically opens the front door.

Primary access is from Batthory utca but it is also possible to enter the building using the blue access device from Kalman Imre street

Stephen Place was incredible.... All the pictures we see in the airbnb profile is the same in the apto. I book his place 5 months before my trip, my comunication with stephen was great, from the time i booked until i left the apto. He is a great host and the location near the parliament and the tourist area is a Plus, and having a supermarket in the same block from the apto, i could not ask for anything better. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone. I hope i can come back to Budapest soon and i would love to stay in his place again.

Possibly the nicest Airbnb I've ever stayed at. Tastefully furnished with lots of natural light, space and everything you would need in an apartment. Location was also the best. I did not meet Stephen but he was very prompt and friendly in his responses. I just wished the shower head had higher water pressure and check-out could have been smoother. These small inconveniences aside, it is still a beautiful apartment and I would highly recommend anyone to stay here in Budapest.

Response from Stephen:
Dear Peiyu, glad you had a nice stay. Regarding check out the arriving guests came from the airport as their flight arrived at 11.30am. I operate a flexible checkin/out policy which means that I take account of peoples flight and train arrival times but also set 12 noon as the earliest entry time if there are existing guests. Sometimes its not possible to get it exactly right to meet everyone's needs. I always allow departing guests use of the apartment until 12 noon also which means there is no rush to leave. Thanks anyway for the feedback. All the best.
