“fantastic apartment, relaxing and perfect for a couple”

This was my second six day visit to The Castle View Studio, that statement alone offers an insight to my recommendation. Our flight was delayed by two hours and Hedi was able to re-arrange our visit without any issues, equally, the check out process was quick and effortless.

The apartment is perfect for a couple, the living space is large enough and situated in a position where you don't feel like you're in a studio. The two sofas offer plenty of space to read or enjoy a drink and watch the sunset over Buda Castle.

Whilst I've never had an evening meal at the apartment the dining area is ideal for morning coffee and a continental breakfast. A boulangerie is situated less than 30 seconds from the front door and provided us with morning pastries. 900HUF / £2.50 will provide you with more than enough. The wifi is great, and you are able to listen to BBC radio if you have the app on your telephone. (Perfect to hear of the traffic jams back home whilst you're having breakfast).

The bathroom is immaculately clean and well ventilated for an apartment, the shower was incredibly powerful and was not used on full power. Plenty of towels were provided in the bathroom with further towels offered in the large wardrobe. All bed linen, towels and furniture were clean and fresh.

You will find two mini-markets within the same proximity offering cold beers, wines, meats and cheeses as well as the other usual commodities that you would expect. Prices are clearly marked and a receipt is offered prior to payment saving any potential language misunderstanding.

For people looking to unwind and relax during summer I would recommend visiting the AquaBar outdoor terrace at the Marriott Hotel, again 30 seconds from the apartment. The setting is perfect for an afternoon aperitif or drink, the service is fantastic and the early evening view is as good as it gets. You will be shocked by the prices, in a good way. It's very reasonable. Around 1000HUF for a beer / 1500HUF for a cocktail.

For a lovely evening meal you will find plenty of restaurants on the promenade 25metres before the apartment overlooking the river Danube, you are also 2 minutes from Vaci Utca pedestrian street, I would recommend La Cucina for the evening and Anna Cafe at lunch.

Staying at The Castle View Studio really does offer the perfect opportunity to relax and unwind whilst being in the middle of a capital city, I will be returning for a third visit for sure.

“Lovely well equipped studio, central location with view of Buda castle, Gellert Hill and citadel”
Reviewed 12 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Studio was excellent, well equipped, comfortable and clean, exactly as photos/description. Always felt safe in neighbourhood even late at night. View is spectactular and we spent every evening, after a tiring day sightseeing, happily gazing out at view. The owners responded promptly to emails prior to booking. Nothing was too much trouble and Heidi met us at apartment upon arrival on Saturday evening to show us around and how to operate everything. She followed this up the next day to ensure all was well. As someone has already mentioned the shared areas could benefit from some tlc but this cannot detract from the studio itself. We recommend to family and friends and will stay again.

“Location exactly where you want to be. Easy access to everything and a view!”
Reviewed 1 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Great location in the heart of Pest. Easy walking distance to public transportation. Easy 5-10 minute walk to Grand Market. Just off the Vaca Utca, and river front. Lots of restaurants and bars in easy walking distance. The apartment: Clean and comfortable (as described in photos). Owner (Heidi) waiting for us at the location upon arrival to give us the keys and answer any questions. Her emails beforehand included instructions/directions for us walking from the metro and were a great help (especially the info that the apartment was in same building as the mini-market). View from the apartment was great (part of the Marriott hotel is in front of you, but you overlook that and have a full view of the castle in one direction and the Citadel in the other). Great photo ops of the castle lit up at night. Can view the castle while sitting on the couch.
Overall, great location, great accommodations, very reasonable price. Budapest was a lot of fun (even in the rain), and I would return again and stay as this apartment.
Thanks again Heidi.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 18 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The apartment is in a great location on the riverfront within walking distance to many attractions. The view from the french balcony is great especially at night. We felt very safe within the apartment location. The main pedestrian street is just a block or so away. Close to trams, buses and the metro. Hedi the owner was very helpful and easy to correspond with.

The apartment is very clean and although small has plenty of room for two and all the essentials except for an iron and ironing board. There were no clothes washing facilities in the apartment. The apartment block public areas need some TLC.

Apartment exactly as shown in photos with great wifi.
