Everything went well. The lady who met me was really nice. The apartment had everything I needed, and it was really very convenient--close to everything!
Nice place, nice people
Place is well located, near shops, supermarkets and bus/metro stops, the owners/administrators are really nice. The building is rather old, but no complaints though.
Marvelous holidays in Budapest! / Vacaciones geniales!
Hi! We were 12 girls at andrassy's House. We all had spot to sleep and for save our belongings. The appartments were provideded of tea and coffe always. We stayed on the middle of all, in the center of Budapest. We were near Tesco (supermarket with special timetables for night animals like us), and a yummy turkish little restaurant with special timetables too haha also you have McDonalds and Burger King in the same crossing. It was warm and comfy. We travelled a lot all day and when we arrived at home, we felt like in real home. So for us was perfect to choose this option. And from the hosts, when we were there we need two times help because one heater and tourist-info and they were available for us. And the wifi worked fine! haha that's important if you are in a foreign counry. Thanks so much for all guys!
Hola! Estuvimos 12 chicas en casa de la familia andrassy. Había espacio para todas, para guardar nuestras cosas, dormir, relajarse... Los apartametos siempre tenían café y tés. Es realmente céntrico, estás en medio de todo, cerca hay supermercados 24 horas o que cierran tarde. Y turcos super ricos que también cierran muuuy tarde. Para menos atrevidos en el mismo cruce podías encontrar los típicos McDonals y Burger King también. El apartamento estaba calentito y te sentías realmente como en casa cuando llegabas de recorrerte la ciudad. Salimos verdaderamente contentas de nuestra estancia en Budapest. Y sobre nuestros anfitriones decir que necesitamos su ayuda un par de veces por un calentador e información turística y estuvieron disponibles cuando les necesitamos. Y el wifi iba bien! jajaja Gracias por todo chicos!
Marton and the Budapesting team were great hosts. We were welcomed by a friendly member of the team who suggested some places for us to visit and answered all of our questions. They were also very good about letting us store our luggage in the room after checkout while we waited for our flight!
The apartment is in a perfect and safe location, very close to the city centre and major metro stations. The room and bathroom are quite small, but perfectly charming and great value. We had a great time.

Friendly and helpful accomodations
We stayed with Marton and the Budapesting team in april of 2013, and we had an absolutely phenomenal trip, which was due in no small part to the Budapesting team. First, we were picked up at the airport in two cars late at night for a fraction of the cost of a taxi. The drivers were cheerful and responsible. (I cannot emphasis enough how useful it is to be dropped at the door of your lodging when traveling in a new city).
Then, despite the late hour, two Budapesting employees (I apologize for not remembering your names!) came by the apartment to show us all of the amenities and provide us with a complimentary map of the city and numerous recommendations. With their extensive help (they willingly stayed with us for over half an hour) we were able to avoid a great deal of hassle of guessing where to go to eat and drink, looking up the hours and prices of monuments and museums, and wondering what to prioritize seeing with our short time in Budapest.
Later that weekend, Marton personally made us a recommendation for and reservation at an authentic Hungarian restaurant, which was something we greatly wanted to do but were unsure where to eat. It was the best meal of the weekend!
To top it off, we were again provided with a cheap ride returning to the airport even though it was an ungodly hour of 5 a.m.
Overall, the building felt incredibly safe because there are three sets of gates or doors, and the location was quite good. It is about a brisk 10 minute walk from the river, and while other lodgings may be closer, we did not feel hampered by the distance because the walk is very pretty and helps you see more of the city! Additionally the accommodations within the facility were very good. Certainly it is not a plush room, however for the prices I was incredibly pleased with the comfort levels of the beds and overall cleanliness. It was great to have access to a refrigerator as well because we could have breakfast in the room and start the day off quickly.
De Panne, Belgium
friendly people, good service, big appartment, everything fine!
My experience on astoria Residence was wonderful. Marton is an excellent host, and the room was cleaned. It was that I have expected.
Great price, apartment size, and location
We enjoyed our stay in Budapest. The apartment was quiet, clean, and felt safe for my family. Marton and his team were nice and helpful. The apartment is nice with an Eastern European feel. Great deal for the price. You cannot beat the location. Also, there is safe covered parking a few blocks away.
Best value for money
This place is all what student travellers would want. Service minded staff with great location and informal relationship built afterwards.
Thanks again for lifetime experience.
Highly recommended to all of the travellers.
Cheers from Lithuania and Denmark.

地點離 Astoria 地鐵站只有不到兩分鐘的路程，交通非常方便。
有舊式瓦斯爐 (需使用火柴[有點受潮不好點 XD]，抽屜中有提供)、烤箱、麵包機、各式餐具、冰箱、洗衣機可免費使用。
附近有不少餐廳及一些小商家可補充食物，但我比較推薦搭地鐵到 Pillangó utca，有家超大的 Tesco 可以補給物資，收信用卡不用另外換福林。
有鑑於室內有其他更好的餐廳及咖啡廳，由於這裡離地鐵站實在很近，若有計畫把布達佩斯玩透的話建議直接買地鐵通票 (可收信用卡喔，我在這裡三天完全沒用到福林，連 Váci utca 賣明信片的攤位結帳也是帶我到店內，可刷卡!)。
A comfortable stay
I had been staying in the astoria Residence apartment with my sister over last Christmas. The location is right at the centre. The flat was clean. And the host was very willing to help when we had questions. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Très bien !
Appartement très sympa et bien situé.
Je recommande fortement !
in the heart of Budapest
I was greeted by very nice people, even though I showed up last minute. Apartment was in good condition, right in the heart of the city, close to everything. Price is good compared to most places in Budapest.
really huge and nice appartment
me and 9 friends stayed at the flat for 2 nights. it was really huge and well located (directly next to the metro, nice pubs around) they were already waiting for us in the flat and showed us around a bit.
i can really say that it was a nice stay and can recomend it to everyone who is traveling with more people!
An unexpected stay at a lovely apartment.
We stayed for four nights at this apartment. We ended up staying in a different room than the one pictured here, but it was in the same apartment. The room was great, clean, warm, and cozy. The bed was extremely comfortable with the heater right by the bed. It came with a well equipped kitchen which we made use of every day to cook meals. It is a three bedroom apartment, but we had it all to ourselves. It was conveniently located near the heart of the city.
Had stayed at the apartment in January and Marton was delightful and so helpful! Recommend to everyone!!
I went to Busdapest on December of 2013 in a group of 14 people. Staying in Marton's apartments was the best decision! It is a place with a great localization, close to a metro station, next to several restaurants, fast food and markets. Marton was of great help, when we arrived in the apartment he explained a lot about Budapest, places to visit, to eat, to go out at night and answered to all our doubts. The price was very cheap (same price as the hostels) but we could have much more privacy and freedom to do what we wanted, without having to be concerned about annoying other people. The apartment only had one toilet and one shower, but both of them worked very well. The heating system worked perfectly, what was very important in that time of he year. In really recommend this place, specially if you are a group of students looking for a good place with a great price!
São Paulo, Brazil
Budapest is an amazing city! i always knew that!
But a trip is only amazing when you have the lucky of finding a comfortable place to stay in a very good location!
This is what i found in the astoria flat!
Very easy and close to every touristic place, supermarkets, subways and everything you need for a very reasonable price, you can go budapesting care free and enjoy every second of it!
Another huge plus is that the group of owners have the care of handing you mas and tips as you arrive at the flat, helping you to save time!!
And this flat is also verrryyy close to the coolest ruin bars, for those who like different atmosphere to have the late night drinks!
Great Experience, Great Service, Great Family
This rental space is wonderful, indeed I didn't really realize how great until I saw it. It is in a great location, very close to the underground transportation, and less than two blocks away from the 2nd largest synagogue in thew world! Besides location the young man who checked me in was very welcoming, and very willing to take the time to give me any information necessary to make my stay easier. He gave me a map and helped me figure out where the things I wished to see were. The space itself is very welcoming. I especially enjoyed having a kitchen space, both because it helped me save money eating out and also because it was just very homey after a long day's walking all around Buda and Pest. Definitely worth the money and a place I would come back to should I wander in that direction again, thanks!
very good place to stay
has everything you need.
smooth checkin and checkout
Affordable, clean and convenient - perfect for budget travellers
The apartment is located in the city centre, the rates we got were extremely affordable as well. Most importantly, the apartment was really clean! Just don't get turned off by the outlook of the building, I have to admit it looks extremely dodgy and rundown but it is all good once you get to the apartment!
I was in Budapest for a weekend, 2 nights with 2 friends. This delightful apartment offers all the comforts, central, well-connected, metro station under the house. To get to the airport very convenient, taking the subway and bus. Peter and Marton are synonymous with reliability, professionalism and kindness.
Recommend it to anyone who wants to visit this city to book this apartment, you will not regret.
a place to stay!
it was a pleasure to stay in the flat .. there was so much space clean and great comunnication with the host .. recomending..

Best Place in Budapest
Hi,I was surpriced about the apartment,it was much better than I thought.The place is very modern and the view is amazing.I will go this sommer again,and %100 I will stay in the same place..
Clean, cheap, and 10min walk from the center
I've been two times in this lovely apartments near the sinagogue and I've been treated very good from the young owner Marton and his friendly staff.
Very typical courtyard in a historic building just outside astoria station. Easy chech-in and check-out and the convenience to have the key of the flat. Small but clean bathroom and nice kitchen with three independent bedrooms. It's nice to chat in the living room with the other house mates.
I'll be back as soon as possible!
The hostel is in nice and quiet area, with metro stop very near. My room was spacious and warm. It's saloon apartment, big and spacious, so u can have your privacy or be with people in common room. The guy working there was very nice and helpful. In general, it was pleasant stay, felt like a local those few days. :)
Budapesting good time
Had a good time in Budapest. Unfortunately we travelled in on Christmas and we could not reach our hosts using the instruction provided since he was also showing in another guest and was not in the apartment as originally expected. We had to stop a random person on the street and call the phone.
Otherwise, however the place was nice, spacious with ample space and bedrooms. Location was definitely the best part as it was easy to get around everywhere we need. Marton was a kind host and provided maps and showed us the highlights that we should see during our time there.
Amazing hosts and location
The apartment is amazing well located. They also were very kind to receive us in a very late check in :) Very clean and near everything. A 24hours market just below the house. Nice and calm neighbourhood, also they were very available for our questions. The city and the people are amazing.
I sure recommend this place.
Thanks for everything.
Nice, clean and comfortable apartment.
Loved the apartment. It was nice, clean and comfortable. Anton was even kind enough to recommend us places to visit around Budapest.
perfect place to stay
The apartment was pretty nice and very big and perfectly located. Check-in was easy and service very good. I will book again next time I come to Budapest!
Great inexpensive apartment located in an old building.
Marton's place is a spacious multi-room apartment in an old building. The building itself has it's own irresistible climate but has obviously seen better days.
Note: it's very hard to find the right place in the building at first, so make sure that someone will wait for you at the time of your arrival.
The rooms are clean and bright, but beds seem to be worn out and lack some freshness.
It's a very nice place for people who aren't to fussy about hostel-like conditions. Very good location, convenient transport and troubleless atmosphere.
Montréal, Qc, Canada
Amazing stay in Budapest
Budapest, one of the highlight of my trip. the apartment was nice, it feels at home. Besides being very affordable, and near everything. Marton's brother was super nice and showed us stuff to do.
I was in Budapest in June-July last year and it was a great experience. Our flight got delayed with 4 hours and I arrived after midnight, but Marton's brother was in front of the building when we got there. It was simply astonishing to see that they really take services to the next level. Thank you for a wonderful experience, Marton!
Clean, large apt in the heart of Pest
We had a great stay at the astoria Residence apt. It was large , clean and had all the necessaries to make our stay comfortable. The front of the complex is on one of the major streets and the back opens up to a great little neighborhood and tiny shops. The apartments have locked gate access. The owner was very accommodating and we would recommend it to anyone.
Very Well located
Very Well located apartement in the city center.
The host was very helpfull.
Recommendable for this price.
I didn't meet Marton when my boyfriend and I stayed in one of his apartments but we were very kindly received by one of his colleagues (even though we were late!) who gave us many leaflets and ideas for our stay in Budapest. The apartment was stunning, in a great location and was overall a fantastic place to stay in for our first trip to the city. Will definitely book again next time we visit!
The location of the apartment is optimal to enjoy Budapest during the day or during the night. The city center can be reached just walking, and there are good restaurants, bars and clubs in the surroundings.
The astoria metro station is just a few meters away from the apartment.
The apartment is perfect for a group of friends, the kitchen has everything you may need, and there is even a 24 hour-open supermarket just at the door.
Highly recommended to enjoy this beautiful city!
Wonderful, and great location!
This apartment was perfect for my needs and much better than a hotel. A great value for the price. I recommend it to anyone needing a clean comfortable place to stay in the center of Budapest.
I had a great time in the astoria Residence. We got picked up at the airport at the agreed time, had a safe ride towards the residence and we were welcomed properly.
Their service was great and we got provided more information where to go in the city to have a good time.
The apartment itself was in a good condition and we had nothing to complain about. Kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms were in a decent state.
We could not have wished for anything more. We felt safe within the building.
Great apartment close by sights
We had a great stay at Marton's place. It was at first a bit hard to get into the complex since there were gates we didnt have the keys to but we managed in the end.
The apartment is small but there is everything you need and it is located very close to all the sightseeing you want to do. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Marton!
A welcoming and helpful introduction to Budapest.
Marton was very useful before and during our stay, his family were always contactable and upon arrival gave us a brief outline on where to find the best baths and nights out. The accommodation was modest although very good value for money, and the location was almost ideal. I'll be sure to contact him again if I ever return.
Very nice small hostel for great price.
Located in the city center, this simple and small hostel offers very good value for your money. It was clean, the bed was comfortable and Márton was friendly and reliable. On the minus side, there were some drunk people in the yard of the building when I came later at night. I did not really mind, but I can imagine a lone girl might feel insecure. Also, you need to make sure you bring your phone. Mine ran out of energy and I just could not get in for a while.The door bell rings in the hostel, but Marton stays in a different appartment. I had to borrow a phone from a stranger. Overall,I would recommend this hostel to a budget-traveller.
Central and authentic
I had a great time staying in astoria. Its so central. We rented bikes and got everywhere so fast. Marton and his crew are very helpful!
The appartement was super!! good contact with the owner without any problem. It's located in the center of the city and perfect when you visit Boedapest with a group of friends.
Our stay at budapesting was excellent. The appartement was big enough for the 5 of us. The kitchen was fully equipped, so we could save money by cooking "at home". The place was clean when we arrived and the owners very kind. Great place!
Central location in the middle of Budapest
Convenient for what we were going to in Budapest, helpful people and nice location.
Nice place to stay when visiting Budapest
The location is good, very nice place that made me feel like home than staying in a hostel. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.
excellent central location
The host was very accomodative as we arrived early and some changes in the room was being done by storing our baggage. Only problem was the stairs with no lift available but the central location and a helping hand by the host to move the baggage is appreciated
holly : )
Value/central location can't be beat!
I loved staying at this apartment! It's one subway stop off of Deak Ferencter where there is access to three of the four subway transit lines, easy access to anywhere you would care to go in Budapest. Astoria metro stop is a couple minutes walk from the apartment.
There is a grocery store and restaurants close by, and full kitchen amenities at the apartment. Know that there are several flights of stairs up to the apartment. I am not good with directions : ) much for a visual person, so I would in hindsight ask for a photograph of the gate to the apartment building next time, to ensure I was at the right place. I was a bit confused at first - but was at the right doorway. A picture of it pre-travel would have helped me. I would stay here again no question! Communication with the owners was great and put me at ease.
Definetely the place.
We found the place via airbnb. It was definetely the best choice. Marton and his family treated us like kings, explained us the higlights of the city and were allway ready for help.
Best location. Great service.
Chicago, IL USA
Great direction where to go and easy access to public transport
Had a great experience at this apartment. Was close to a market for food and public transportation to get to main amenities of the city. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook and make coffee. Would recommend this place and would stay again. Thanks and host was informative on questions we had.
Great Budapest experience
It's very well positioned in the middle of the city with easy access to public transport and points of interest within walking distance. It's well equiped to serve a large number of people and we really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. Peter is a very good host and I truly recommend staying here.
Middle in the heart of Budapest
We came to Marton as a group of 7 people and stayed in 2 appartements door to door. We loved to stay really in the center of Budapest in a ancient nice building with all You need to enjoy the vaccation. Just one room had its window to the street and was a bit noisy in the morning traffic. Ours was very quiet. Marton was very easy to communicate and helped us with airport transportation and taxi. For the price a excellent decision, we woulkd definitely come back.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Marton's during one snowy February and loved it! The location was perfect and Marton and his brother were excellent hosts. The room was clean, big and warm. We received lots of help finding our way around the city, booking taxis and an excellent recommendations for food! We would definitely stay with Marton again.
Excellent apartment in great location!
We had a great time in Budapest and Marton was an exceptional host. We were traveling with 3 adults and 3 kiddos and this apartment was perfect.
Nice apartment, great location
As the title suggests; Nice apartment, great location. At first it is a little difficult to find with lots of hostels around but the owners were easy to contact and helpful.
The people before us were late leaving but we were able to leave our bags in the apartment whilst we went out for the day and we came back to a lovely clean place to stay.
We stayed for a couple of nights, everything needed in the apartment was available i.e. fridge, oven, kettle, washing machine etc etc.
Location is just down the road from the Elisabeth bridge and within easy walking distance to anywhere you would like to go. There are plenty of shops for food shopping at your doorstep also.
Overall, good apartment, easy communication and great central location.
We've been to budapest with 9 girls and this appartment suited us perfectly. The communication with marton was very good from the beginning, we were looking forward to go there. The appartment is located near the centre so could walk easily to everything we wanted to see. A real recomendation
Check in was simple and my room was comfortable, cheap, and well located for exploring the city. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a good deal and something a little more homey than a hotel.
Great place to stay! Central and fully equipped!
Stay at the astoria Residence was super! Everything was provided for me, plus some insider information from my host! The flat was clean and secure. It is very central and you can reach everything in walking distance!
If I come back to Budapest - I will stay there again! Highly recommended!
L'appartement est parfaitement situé à moins de 100 mètres d'une station de métro, juste à côté de la Grande Synangogue. Le quartier propose de nombreux restaurants, et deux supérettes se trouvent même aux pieds de l'immeuble.
L'accueil a été parfait et les chambres sont grandes et confortables.
La salle de bain aussi est très bien, avec une grande baignoire.
We had a fantastic stay in astoria Residence, the gave us a lot of information about the city (transport, places to visit and to eat...) The house was very clean and tidy. The room has heavy curtains and a heater and the host was really nice with us.
Perfect palce to saty in Budapest
The service was excellent, no problems at all, the rooms are comfortable and the apartment is located in a perfect spot.
Great stay for great price!
Great apartment, very clean, offers you everything you need in respect of housing/kitchen appliances, linings, towels. Apartment itself is spacious and has three great bedrooms.. Great location, you can find all you need in walking distance (shops, restaurants, cafes, diners, bus station in front of the building). Also public parking available in font of the building (or if you're not so lucky a bit further down the street).. It certainly is great accomodation for affordable price!
In a place full of history, this flat is very well situated. You can visit many things by walk / metro stations are very close. The guest was very nice and very helpful at the beginning of our stay. Budapest is a great city to visit.

Enjoyable stay in Budapest
Astoria Residence apartment was clean and tidy. We had a very spacious room. The kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed having out own space but also the common areas where we met some other lovely travelers. Location was great, easy to get anywhere with the metro just on the corner. Would recommend to anyone.

Comfortable, quiet, affordable and a great location.
Astoria is a great place to stay when visiting Budapest, the location is central and near a metro rail station, there are plenty of shops and attractions within walking distance. The accommodation is comfortable and very affordable, and the family who manages the residence are helpful in making your stay a pleasant one. I would recommend astoria to friends and look forward to staying there again some day.
As a single traveling woman, it is important to me that I feel welcomed and safe in my lodging. I really enjoyed my stay, it is folks like these who make Budapest a wonderful, enjoyable stay. Everything was clean, fresh, and of excellent value The location is superb.
Best value and location in Budapest
Márton was an amazing host with a beautiful apartment smack bang in the middle of Budapest. We had an amazing time there and will be returning to martons apartment whenever we go back. Best experience so far
Cool place with a great location

Great stay in Budapest
The accomodation was clean and comfortable and within easy reach for the center and the sights of Budapest.
We had a room in an appartment with 3 rooms, shared bath room and kitchen. The people we met there were really kind and interesting and it was a good atmosphere.
We really enjoyed our stay.
A delightful apartment/Guesthouse!
I really enjoyed my stay in astoria Residence apartment - in fact it was like a home from home. It was extremely clean and quiet, with all amenities, and in a very central location. I needed some translation help in Budapest and there was no hesitation from the owners of this apartment, in fact their son met me in the city center to assist me! Such warmth and friendliness really made my stay!
Nice apartment, well located and friendly reception
We were 6 people staying in astoria Residence apartment in October 2011. We had a very nice stay in the apartment. It is well located and it is easy to reach the different places to visit in the city. The apartment was nice and well furnished, ideal for six persons. We were very friendly received by the owner who gave us advices and information concerning our stay.
Great place to stay in Budapest, we recommend it!
Thank you for this nice stay. We all have been happy there !

Great Stay and a good location
We rented out two appartments in the same block as there were 12 of us staying. The guy that who met us at the apartment was great nothing was too much trouble. he told us about a great bar to go to and also a really good traditional resterant. Apartments has good size and well equipt kitchen and also good size rooms. Only thing that could have been inproved is that it would have been nice if the apartments had air con but for the price it was a great stay!
Central part in the city. ?omfortable. And good equipment
Astoria Residence apartment is very comfortable. Modern equipment. Central part in Budapest. Clean, comfortable, welcoming apartment
5 stars well-deserved!
I stayed in astoria Residence apartment with my friend in august 2012 and it was indeed a smart choice. We had a very nice room (as you can see in the photos) at a very low price. Then you have shared kitchen, washing mashine, tv, free wifi.
Moreover, the apartment has a good location (even if at the arrival we had some difficulties in finding it):
- it is sorrounded by many resteurants, cafes, banks, every kind of service
- 2 minutes walk from the beautiful Sinagogue and only 10 minutes from the centre (St. Stephan, Parliament, main squares ...)
Perfect place to visit Budapest! If I visit it again, I'll sure book it again.
excellent location and assistance from property owners
Very good price for the space and number of beds. Loved the traditional old style Busdapest apartment with internal court yard. The location was excellent for cafes and all transport, although as it is on the main street it was noisy. The only critism are the beds, that were not very comfortable.
Staying at astoria residence was just great. Nice owner who receive you giving out a very good service apart from showing the apartment and its facilities. He gave us tips about the city, recommend us places to visits and even his favorites restaurant which I can say that were worth it. If you are young and are planning to visit Budapest, Astoria residence will be your idilic place. Good price, clean, perfect located and many facilities just in the corner. (restaurant, supermarket, city centre, metro, etc) another good point is the freedom that the owner give to his guess.
Novi Sad, Serbia
Excellent location, great value for the price
We rented astoria Residence a few days after new year in 2012, had a very pleasant stay (group of 8 people), appartment is roomy, location is excellent and hosts very friendly
We where 8 people spending a weekend in budapest, the apartment its great and near to everything you need to visit in budapest. Very friendly people who give us the service and facilities to enjoy the weekend.
I really recommend this place.
Very central, very nice flat, very nice people!
The place is really very central and a short walk from the center of the old town and metro station if you need to go further. The family was very helpful with giving us hints and suggestions what to do in the city. The only issue with the flat was that the wireless was not working but the family helped us to fix it. I thoroughly recommend staying here with a bigger group.
Very convenient location close to astoria Metro. Large bedrooms with ample space. In a secure building. For the price we paid, it is excellent accommodation. Owner's mother met us at the accommodation and she is extremely friendly and helpful
Nice apartment, central location, very helpful and informative owner
Very convenient and inexpensive place to stay in Budapest. The owner was really helpful and friendly. I would stay again for sure.
A very nice experience
I can really recomend a stay with Budapesting.com.
Over the years I have stayed many times and in 3 of the different appartments and everyone has been to full satisfactory with good standard and very affordable prices. Even more I would like to thank both Marton and his mother for all the help they provided me and my friends with during our visits and our stay in Budapest.
Every time they have helped us with all sorts of practical matters and what to do and see in Budapest.
Once I had to try another another supplier of private appartments (I was too late for Budapesting.com;-) but that was not a positive experience, so I really hope I can prolong our acquaintances and stay with You every next time I come to Budapest?
So thank You and keep up the good work!
Best regards Roland Ullin
Excellent week in Budapest. Very interesting city to visit. A lot to see and enjoy.Appartment nearby everything. Space is conortable and guest very careful to
Astoria in 1 word... Amazing!!
The service of astoria residence was great. I had no issues with the residence the whole time. Marton and his mother were so accommodating and made our stay in Budapest a true delight. Our plane arrived late at night as well and Marton sent over two drivers that picked us up and had the apartment key for us.
The home could not be better. Three big bedrooms, a full kitchen, a living room with TV and travel guides, and two bathrooms. No issues at all. The water was hot and the beds were comfortable.
Location could not have been better. I really felt like a local of Budapest because of how residential everything was around us. It was safe all day long, quiet and had good places to eat all around. It is also located next to a Budapest 'must see' the Great Synagogue. (Hint: A good place to tell the taxis drivers to pick you up at, the Synagogue)
I loved every bit of Budapest and it was enhanced fully by staying at astoria Residence.
New York City
great place in the heart of the city
marton and his mother were great hosts, the apt was clean and very centrally located. I highly recommend!
hit my target
It was my second time in Budapest and that's why i clearly knew where in budapest i wanna stay. Astoria apartment hit my target. modest priced 24H shop, 3 min away supermarket, metroline, buses, and walking distance to the deak ter. And the most important we got 3bedroom for decent price. Each bedroom is nicely separated with a living room in a center, nice and cozy kitchen with all necessary stuff. I also liked it coz it's in hungarian-austrian style building.
Highly recommended stay
I highly recommend this place for it's perfect location: close to the synagogue and the Jewish quarter with many great bars and restaurants in the close proximity. Bus and metro stop nearby for easy access to the rest of the city.
The host, who isn't always at the place gave a plan and a lot of the good insider tips where to go eat and drink and for some things we certainly shouldn't miss. Time flew by and we couldn't visit everything as planned, so without doubt I'll return to this place.
W?a?ciciele powitali nas bardzo mi?o, dostali?my kilka cennych wskazówek odno?nie bezp?atnych parkingów, dobrych i niedrogich restauracji oraz miejsc, które warto odwiedzi?. Z w?a?cicielami by? ci?g?y kontakt tel.; w razie jakichkolwiek problemów s?u?yli pomoc?. Mieszkanie okaza?o si? czyste, przytulne, w pe?ni wyposa?one, a do tego w samym centrum miasta. A to wszystko za niewygórowan? cen?. Szczerze polecam!!!

returning to our roots
We loved our stay at the astoria Residence. The apartment was clean, comfortable, very affordable and the location was amazing. It was really easy to get everywhere either walking or on public transportation. We spent a lot of time at the christmas market and learning about christmas traditions for our host, who even invited our whole family to a free holiday concert that she was performing in. Our family travelled all over the world for seven months and astoria Residence felt like home.
I very much enjoyed my stay
Astoria apartments was ideal. It was centrally located as well as an atmospheric hungarian residence. It was warm and cosy and Marton and his team were professional and welcoming.
great welcome, great location, clean, spacious, homely, what else could you ask for?

Simple, convenient, good value
This was the second time I stayed at one of Marton's apartments in Budapest. The first one was a bit north of the Parliament, in a good location if you have a car, but not quite so good if you rely on public transportation and have a sore leg that makes walking a bit difficult. This one was very close to the astoria metro station, with a mini=Tesco store only 50 meters away, so it was much more convenient for my purposes. It is a large flat, with three separate bedrooms and a shared kitchen/bath. The kitchen is just what you need.. a nice fridge, a microwave, an electric teakettle, plates and silverware. From the inner courtyard balcony there is a view of the large Synagogue. This time it was Marton who met me to orient me to the place, last time it was his partner. Both times it worked out great. But it really helps to have a cell phone handy to coordinate!
Jarek and friends
We stayed in astoria Residence for 3 nights in april 2011, and it was great. We were a group of 8 pax. Marton's mom checked us very late and it was no problem with that, she also reccommended couple of nice places (restaurants, clubs etc.) and explained everything. If you are travelling with friends and would like to stay in a hotel in Budapest, don't do it just write to Marton and he will offer you better service :)
great place great price
I arrived at night, tired after a long trip.(I am 71 years young!!) Marton had been very helpful giving me directions and tips via internet and phone, so I had no problems finding the place. The first impression I got upon arriving to the building was not that good. It is (was?)after all an old building, but with great character. That changed completly as soon as I got into the apartment. Marton´s mother -a charmming true lady- was waiting for me with all kinds of tips, maps, and a welcoming bottle of hungarian wine. My room was very comfortable and big. Shared kitchen, living room and bathroom facilities were totally adequate and spotless. Washing machine, WiFi, cable Tv etc,all worked fine. There are all together 3 rooms, and the feeling is as if you were at sombody´s home, Upon arrival, I was given a set of keys,and some phone numbers in case I needed something. Marton, his mother or his friend were always available, and eagar to help.
The location is very good. Price/value, it is hard to top. I will surely stay there again...Thanks, folks!!!
This apartment worked out very well. Great price and location. Marton was very helpful about information and a really nice guy. I would stay here any time.

Bargain budget accomodation in the heart of Budapest
The astoria residence is perfect for anyone looking for budget accomodation.This won't break the bank however it is easy to find, in the heart of the city spacious and clean.
The rooms are spacious with a kitchen/sitting area.
It is clean and hassle free all round.
Myself and my group were more than pleased.
Nice appartment in the center of the city.
This appartment is very nice and best located in the center of Budapest. Check-in worked very well and the service was good.
A great location in the heart of the city!
A very nice apartment in the very very centre of Budapest. Everything is in the walking distance. It's the perfect place for visiting the city. The building is into a fabolous court where you can see the dome of the synagogue, beautiful view!
Bathroom and kitchen are to share, but this is the beauty of a journey, get in touch with different people! Clean location and the owners very friendly and hospitable.
If I could I would return there now!
Very friendly experience
As for my stay as a whole for New Years Eve 2011 in Budapest I felt really welcome everywhere. Friendly atmosphere of Budapest knocked me off my feet, besides food and great wines! Astoria Residence was no exception. Marton was very helpful with city maps and explanations, it was insanely clean and really comfortable and so it was quite enjoyable to spend a night at this place after aforementioned great food and wine. I will certainly come back asap!
Redwood City, CA
Friendly hosts, convenient location
The astoria residence is across from the Great Synagogue (though the entrance is on the next street), and 1/2 block from the underground entrance, from which you can go all over Budapest. I was greeted by Mrs. Andrassy when I came. She provided me with a map and tourist information, and offered to answer any questions or make recommendations, which I did not need since I had been to Budapest before and had a list of what I wanted to see. When I return to Budapest, I will contact Budapesting.com for lodging.
The apartment was in tip-top shape during the four days I stayed there. Each bedroom has a separate key for security. For most of the time, the other residents and I nodded or said hello as we came and went, but the last two days, I had a wonderful time comparing notes with a wonderful Canadian couple and sharing a bottle wine that I was presented with upon arrival. There is a kitchen where you can prepare your own food.
Budapest is an amazing city. I've been there for two weeks on three visits now and have not exhausted the sights. And the astoria residence (and others offered by Budapesting.com, I suspect) offer a chance to escape the tourist district and see more of Budapest and Hungarian housing. There are many attractions within a half mile - the Great Synagogue, a crystal shop, theaters, parks, the Danube embankment -- to name a few that I sampled. And I loved the sight of the synagogue tower as I climbed the steps to the apartment.

excellent comfortable warm apartment in Central Buapest
The apartment was super warm with a boiler in my room even though there was snow on the ground outside. Martha the owner of the apartment was very friendly and helpful and she made me feel very welcome. She came around to clean the apartment every day and I felt very at home here in this apartment. The apartment was very clean at all times. The location was excellent as it was so central in the centre of Budapest and it was also only 3 minutes walk from the Profident dental clinic which I attended for the week for dental treatment. The price of the stay was very reasonable and Martha left me a bottle of wine when I arrived in the apartment. I will definitely return to this apartment in auust 2011 for my final week of dental treatment.
good situation, very spacious
easy to find, good advise from the owner,
2nd time I rent a flat with him => always OK (+ easy to join and helpful)
Perfect apartment for a stay with friends in Budapest
Friendly and helpful hosts, lovely apartment in a great central location.
Good value for a great place
Good location, very central to discover the city, really warm welcoming. Everything was perfect for us there.
In the heart of Budapest
I liked very much my 10-day-stay at this place in the centre of Budapest. This apartment is very clean (kitchen, bathroom and toilet and of course my sleeping room), with TV set and lots of basics in the kitchen (salt, coffee..) There are books provided and information brochures about Hungary/Budapest and city magazines. I shared the apartment with some other guests of other sleeping rooms in the same apartment. The hosts are very friendly and always happy to help when they came to clean or had something to do there - giving activity hints etc.- I even could practise a bit Hungarian language with them! For me it is a must for individual travellers and I am looking forward to my next stay with Marton´s crew!
Amazing Place! Can't wait to return!
The place was fantastic! Marton was very helpful and the place was clean, comfortable, and safe! As a young female traveling on her own, these were very important. I choose the place initially for the ideal convenience and exceptional price, but was delighted at the service and accomidation! It is an ideal base in which to explore Budapest!
Great time in Budapest!
We were met at the airport by the friendly owners, picked up in a BMW and taken to the apartment. Location is excellent and could not have asked for a better stay. Very friendly and accommodating, normally i feel ripped off with deals like this but not on this occasion. I would recommend this place to either a group of friends or a romantic getaway!

My son and I had a 1 x week visit to Bodapest and would strongly recommend Palatinus House.
1 minute from the River and a city centre location perfect.
Our home in the center of Budapest
After 880km cycling along the Duna river we reached the astoria Residence, our final destination of the 2 weeks trip. The astoria Residence is located in the center of Pest. Me and my 8 other friends enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks
Great value for a terrific location
We really enjoyed our stay at the astoria Residence. Walking distance to all the main sights in the city, and for a great price. will definitely stay here again, the next time we are in budapest.
Just lovely darling
wonderful, clean, spacious, great location as well. We found our hosts to be really accomodating and helpful. Highly recommended.
really good location and contact person, also overall
the host were very helpfull and the flat was nice, clean and very good located on the main street of Budapest!
Excellent location; great host
Had some issues getting into the place upon arrival. However, things were quickly resolved. Excellent location, modern amenities.
We were highly satisfyed with the location and the condition of the apartment.
There is plenty of space and everything important is being provided.
In short, we can highly recommend it!
cosy home away from home...
the Astoria Residence is clean and well equipped, with kitchen, washing
machine and wifi.. They have 3 bedrooms which could accommodate up to
10 person. We rented the whole apartment and it s nice and cosy to get to
spent time with each others in the living and dining area. The rooms are
spacious and comfortable.
it's very convenient to move around as it is only 3 minutes walk to the metro
and right next to the jewish quarters and the main square in budapest.
There are plenty of cafes, fast food restaurants and mini markets nearby the
It's owner, mdm sussie and marton provided good recommendation on local
food and money changer and a guide book of the city.
It's most suitable for family or groups of friends.
It would be good if you know a little about the city or consult the tourist
information office as there will be no reception, even though sussie or
marton can be reach most of the time. and there's no lift up to the
residence which is on 2nd floor.
Friendly hosts, good accomodation. beautiful city
Astoria Residence is situated in the centre of Pest and is the perfect place to stay for a trip to Budapest. All major sites are within walking distance or accessable via an excellent transport system; metro, trams, buses.
As soon as tne apartment was booked, weeks before our trip, Marton was advising and helping make our stay memorable and this continued throughout our stay.
Smack in the center
Service was excellent, Marton even thought out a
complete itinery for our short 1.5 days. Apartment
was very nice and cosy, felt like home, it was
suprising big and ceiling was so high (think cause
its such an old building) ..... Marton said go up two
flights of stairs, but it felt like 4 flights in
modern apartments :)
Location was very good, metro stop is literally
outside the apartment. Unfortunately our stay was
just too short for me to dislike anything at all (not
that I will if I stayed longer).
zakaterowanie godne polecenia!
Wprawdzie sp?dzilismy w Budapeszcie tylko jedna noc, ale i tak z pe?na odpowiedzialnoscia daje Astoria Residence 5 gwiazdek. Bylo domowo i sympatycznie ;-)). Marton swietnie mówi po polsku, co u?atwia zdecydowanie kontakt(w wielu miejsach mielismy problemy z porozumieniem sie po angielsku czy niemiecku).Do tego dochodzi swietna lokalizacja (samo centrum). My bylismy samochodem (bardzo wysokie op?aty za parkowanie w godz. od 8.00 do 20.00). Jednak pobliskie centrum handlowe rozwi?zuje problem;)
Je?li kiedy? jeszcze zawitamy do tego pieknego miasta, na pewno skorzystamy z oferty noclegowej Astoria Residence.
If there be a 6th star, I will be all over it :)
What else I can say? Perfect location. Just few meters form second biggest synagogue worldwide, few meters from METRO station, few meters form market. Lots of nice coffe's and bars nearby (one or more in the very same building). Apartment was clean, well capped with high speed wi-fi internet access. Its a perfect choice.
and btw: I got a ticket form police for bad parking also with "the wheel blocking device". I don't speak Hungarian, so I called the owner of apartment, if he could help us out. He gets to the place in few minutes later (that was saturday evening!), he drived us to the police station, translated everything for us...and so on. Ive never met a person on my trips that was more kind then he is. So again.. thank you very much Marton :)
I can highly recommend Astoria Residence, it was a perfecy holliday :)
I fill like i was in my house, i really reccomend to go there..

Beautiful apartment! We loved being able to use the kitchen to cook meals for ourselves, and the big bathtub was a great place to relax. Very comfortable and inviting, and convenient, too!
A great choice in Budapest!
A great location, a very nice apartment, and Marton is a genuinely gracious and inviting host. Highly recommended!
Charming flat in the city centre of Budapest
I stayed a week-end in Astoria Residence last January. I had a wonderful time.
The flat is really cute, well decorated and confortable.
It is very well located, right in the city centre. The building is beautiful with a view on the synagogue.
The landlord is very friendly. He gave us lots of useful information about the city.
I will def. go back there if i come back to Budapest one day.
Astoria Room / Marton Andrassy
Very nice place and kind service in this simple but warm-hosting flat..
We received cleaver and useful tips to enjoy better the trip, its the 4th time we went there.
The place is well, central, close to all transports and nice restaurants.
We enjoy to return there again ;-)
So nice place!
Close all you want to go in Budapest.
And Marton and Susie are so friendly.
Very homely apartment, sound advice from host!
Myself and my partner stayed in Astoria house for 7 nights, right near the metro station. Location perfect. Peter picked us up from the airport and gave us an absolute wealth of information of things to see and do in and around Budapest along with maps.
The apartment at Astoria was very homely, its a 3 bedroom place, but we were lucky to have it all to ourselves. It had kitchen too, perfect for us who had to watch our budget as we tended to cook our own meals and eat in.
All in all, highly recommend budapesting.com
Shannon & Heidi
A great place to stay.
Having had some trouble with another rental it was simply wonderful moving into this one. The owners are very kind and helpful. I found the bathroom really nice and clean - the hot tub was without question a big plus. The room I had was cozy and the bed very comfortable. I was also very happy about the good washing machine and the well equipped kitchen.
The location is excellent - it would have been hard to find a better place.
Many thanks to Marton and Susie.
The room has a perfect location in the heart of the city. The flat was comfortable and the room had enough space. The guy who rented me the room was very friendly and there were a lot of charming details like fresh towels, a bottle of wine and a cityguide...great service!

Appartment in Budapest Astoria residence ( www.budapesting.com )
I rented a room in an appartment in Astoria Residence managed by www.budapsting.com.and it was a great expérience. The room was in a three bedroom appartment. It was really big, quite and warm. The appartment is very calm and clean with a fully equiped kitchen and a nice bathroom.
It's centrally located and Marton and his mum are lovely and give you all the informations you need to have a dreamfull stay.I really recommand this place, it's really cheap for the quality. You will not regret your choice.

Home away from home in Budapest...
My husband and I stayed here for 9 days at the beginning of our 18 month trip around the world. We were hoping to find a clean, comfortable and friendly place to stay which was also affordable. Affordable is not easy to find but we were fortunate enough to have gotten in touch with Marton who settled us into our sweet place with an old home feel. We loved to location near the metro lines and found it easy to get around. The apartment was very clean and spacious. Marton was exceptionally friendly and helpful. He is thoughtful and professional which made us feel safe and well looked after at the onset of our epic journey. A traveler always prefers a good start and that was provided in Budapest. We would certainly stay there again if our travels bring us back there again someday. We felt very much at home.
Great place to stay
Great place to stay in Budapsest.
I spend 5 days in BP sharing room with my friend at Marton's place. Location of apartament helped us to spare on bus tickets, we had everything we need including helpful hints where to go and how to get there. Appartamant was roomy and kitchen was well equipped, Thats all for realy good price, I higly recomend!
PS. Marton doskonale mowi po polsku;)
San Francisco, CA
Definitely more than a place to stay
We had a great stay in Budapest. We were very comfortable in the apartment and found it easy to get around. The proprietors of Astoria Residence made us feel very at home and were happy to provide advice and tips. We were very pleased with all the suggestions. In a sense it was almost more like staying at a friends than at a guest house.
Perth, Western Australia
Great Place in the Centre of Budapest
I rented a room in Marton's apartment for a weekend in February 2009. The place was great. Very nice inside, excellent modern facilities, and a really great idea of what to see and do around Budapest from Marton :)
The place has a fantastic location, right near the Astoria Metro Station on Rákóczi út. If you're looking for a nice, really well-kept plapce to stay with friendly people, I'd recommend :)
Oh and if you're reading this but still not sure about your Budapest visit, you should definitely go. It's beautiful.
San Antonio TX
Perfect Place to stay in Budapest
Budapest was the last leg of our Eastern European adventure. Marton's Astoria apartment was PERFECT! Very relaxing and has a HUGE bathtub! Also a washer for our clothes. Perfect location and very modern. I will definitely here stay next time!
Spacious Apartment in Great Neighborhood
A large group of us (8) stayed in the Astoria Residence for a weekend in November, and could not have been happier with the place. The owner arranged airport pickups for us, and supplied us with enough spare beds that no one had to share. The neighborhood near the Synagogue is terrific, with lots of good restaurants, bars, and clubs, and easy access to the city center and river.
For a group as large as ours, renting an apartment was definitely the way to go -- low cost and almost no hassle. I definitely would stay there again.
Marton's Mum was an excellent host and very
accomodating. Location was excellent, we had our
privacy and looking forward to going back in December
3 days of Budapest
Marton's welcoming was very nice! He gave us some maps and other good information to visit in Budapest, so we immediatelly felt at home in the (very modern and clean) apartment.
Definattely a place to recommend to other visitors of Budapest, because it's in the middle of the city and you can reach everything there by foot, bus,...
It was a very nice stay!
Brooklyn, NY, USA
Best Host Ever!
I highly recommend this accommodation, not only for the location and conditions of the place, but for the person who organized my stay. Marton Andrassy was fabulous and very accommodating, not only personally picking my friend and me up from the airport (for a small fee), but graciously understanding our flight cancellation and loss of a day in Budapest. He gave us a map to help orient us, recommended places to eat and sights to see, and helped us plan out the best route to take.
In addition, the accommodation was very clean and comfortable. It also gave us the opportunity to meet other travelers, as we only stayed in one of the 3 rooms in the residence. My only complaint is that I wish I had had more time to spend there!
Whenever I get back to Budapest, I would gladly contact my new friend, Marton, and stay at one of his locations. And if you stay, too, please tell Marton I said, "Hello!" -- Susan from NYC
well located and clean and comfortable. have stayed in marton's residences before and would recommend them!
West Sussex, U.K.
Marton and Peter made our introduction to Budapest very easy, they told us all the best places to go and soak up some culture. I would definately come back as we did not do it all in 4 days.
Loads to see in Budapest, lots of familiar scenes from the hostage film!
Beware of palinki it is not for the faint hearted!
Accomodation was excellent value and would return again, no questions asked!
Martin was a great host. He picked us up at the airport, gave us maps of the city, showed us the best place to go to eat/drink, and even outlined a sort of "guide" to the city on the map. We followed his suggestions of where to go and when, and we couldn't have done better. We saw the best parts of Budapest and got to sample great food and we just had a fun seeing the city.
We rented the entire apt for a really reasonable price. It was clean, organized, and coffee and tea (and a good bottle of Hungarian wine) were awaiting us upon our arrival. Plenty of privacy and space to cook meals if you so desire.
The location was great. We were close enough to everything that we could walk. Although it was a good stretch of the legs, even the far stuff was within walking distance.
There really wasn't anything to complain about except I remember that the coffee wasn't so good. Not a big deal.
What I liked most was how warm and inviting Martin was. It was because of him and what he did that made our experience in Budapest AWESOME and I would definitely recommend this place if you ever go to Budapest.
Stay in Budapest
Ideal location, comfortable, charming building, friendly stuff/owner
Excellent appartment and service!
Stayed here for three nights, great apartment with everything you need in a very central location. Incredibly good service and really helpful advice. Highly recommend.
Excellent place to stay
This was a great place to stay for a few days. It's central location was brilliant for exploring the city, and we were helped by some good advice and a great all-round package. Thanks
In the heart of the city!
Budapest is an amazing city and staying right in the center made it possible for me to enjoy it even more. Centrally located, clean, helpful information, safe and peaceful. Easy to get to and from, near everything.
Astoria was a great place to call home for my weekend
in Budapest. The apartment was comfortable and
relaxing and everything went so smoothly. Marton
helped us out right off the bat giving us great info
about money exchange and the city. The kitchen is so convenient and is even nicely stocked with a bottle
of wine! The beds are comfy and the rooms are a good
temperature. Location is pretty good- there is a
metro stop about a block from the apartment. Bottom
line is that you won't be disappointed if you stay
Great Location, Fair price
We stayed up there in October with a group of 8 people. The place is very nice and well taken care of, best thing is the location, right by one of the best metro stations. Only caveat is that there is only one bathroom, so might be tricky for bigger groups, but the overall definitely makes up for that.

A home away from home
I had a fantastic stay in Budapest, a beautiful city and the accommodation helped immensely. Marton and Pete were great hosts; always readily available with a wealth of information at hand. They really go out of their way to insure your stay in Budapest is nothing but fantastic. The apartment is in a great, safe location. A short walk to all the main attractions with the metro also at your doorstep. It is fully equipped and has a comfortable lounge to kick back after a long day of sightseeing along with T.V, wireless and laundry facilities. I highly recommend staying here.
Both the apartment and the service were fantastic!
We stayed at the Astoria Residence for 3 nights in Oct ‘09. Marton and Peter were brilliant, they met us at the airport and spent time with us at the apartment making sure we knew the best places to visit and to eat and drink, which is invaluable when on a short visit. The apartment was clean comfortable and had everything we needed. It was really nice to stay in a building with so much character! Being right in the city centre was also great as we could get to all the main sights easily by foot or by train. All in all we had a fantastic time and would thoroughly recommend a visit to Budapest. Was a bit rainy for us but this didn't put us off exploring!
Enjoyable stay in the centre of Budapest :-)
Well, to begin with, the host was really helpful
and provided us with all the useful information we
needed, recommending both the places to visit and
those to avoid :) The home we stayed at was located
in the centre of Budapest, next to the metro
station, so it was pretty easy to travel to any
part of the city. Although the home was situated in
the centre, it was surprisingly quiet at night. The
thing we liked least about our stay there was the
unbearable heat but that was no one's fault, of
course... and the thing we liked best was the city
itself - Budapest is a wonderful and magical place
worth visiting anytime :-)
What a wonderful time my four friends and I had in Budapest and in Marton's lovely apartment!
Marton was very helpful knowing that we only had a little bit of time in Budapest, yet we wanted to see as much as possible. He planned our days for us, marked up a map, and sent us on our way, it was truly a pleasure!
The place provided us with a great cozy atmosphere! I look forward to recommending this place to friends and family planning to travel through Europe.
A Fun, Quality Place to Stay.
This apartment was very nice and comfortable. It was equiped with three bedrooms and more than enough room for the five person group with which I traveled. In addition, we were provided with a living room, full restroom facilities, and a kitchen. I was more than pleased with the apartment itself and the location. It was within walking distance of many shops and monuments. The proprietor was very kind and helpful too. He gave us a ride from the airport to the apartment and he even gave us two days worth of ideas for touring the city. This involved him actually pulling out a map and marking places to go and the best routs there. His prices were very reasonable too. Overall, I highly recommend this accomadition to any traveler. If you are in the Budapest area, then the Astoria Residence is the best place to stay!
A Perfect Weekend in Budapest
Our trip to Budapest would not have been as wonderful if it were not for
Marton. Upon first meeting him for the ride from the airport, we knew we
made a good choice, not only was the apartment better than we expected, but
Marton was so helpful is helping us know how to plan our travel around the
city. I can't say enough good things about it! I feel like we got a great glimpse
of Budapest and Hungarian culture in only two days!
Very good location
I can highly recommend the appartment for its location and the quality of not only welcome services provided. On my view, it is a good choice especially for short term stays.
The only reason for 1 star missing in my review is that I spent there 3 weeks and it was quite tiring to see new and new people coming and leaving.
Marton who manages all practical modalities related to the rental is very nice person, very helpful and openminded, a real professional! K?sz?n?m mindent, M?rton! And say hello to your mum!
5 nights in Budapest
It's more like crashing at a friends place than formal accommodation.

Personal touch, good price
Budapesting's Astoria Residence is basically a three-bedroom flat that we shared with other guests. It's pleasant and well-located, and the price was pretty good value. What sets this place apart is the manager, Marton, who makes a point of offering personalized touring advice to each guest. He speaks five languages and is very well-organized--kind of amazing for someone as young as he is (early 20's). We have recommended Budapesting to other travelers. The only thing we didn't like was that the toilet is right off the kitchen and the door doesn't close properly--made for a few embarrassing moments. But, not a big deal. I would return.
Friendly and helpful!
This is a cute, clean place to stay. It is a great value for the price. It is a good location and it is easy to get around Budapest from here. The kitchen is well appointed and has everything you need. But the best part is the staff. They are all extreamly helpful and really want you to enjoy your stay in Budapest. They take extra time to make sure you know where to go.
Great location, very clean, well equiped, comfortable,good value.
nice place, very good location, good service
Great Location, Even Better Hospitality
The apartment was in a wonderful location and was exactly as it was in the pictures. It is completely stocked with everything needed to make you feel comfortable.
The best thing about the apartment was the host. He spent quite a bit of time outlining the highlights of the city and helped with reservations when needed.
It was a wonderful trip and the apartment was one of the best parts. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone
Everyone who loves culture, colourful architecture, magnificent buildings and sights, nature and unique green parks, a relaxed environment with sunny terraces, kind people and a night scene full of variety; and does not like over-crowded tourist attractions, littered beaches or noisy drunk fellow travellers, is sure to be fond of Budapest. This beautiful city is worth more than just one trip, and the apartments of Budapesting are worth more than just one stay. The apartments are large, clean and well taken care of, right in the centre of the city and, most important of all, with Marton as such a very kind and invaluable guide into Budapest. With his advice upon arrival it is easy and a wonderful experience to see all different awe-inspiring and quieting aspects of Budapest. I have missed the city's atmosphere since I left it and I am sure to come back for another stay; I highly recommend everyone who is curious to experience Budapesting as well.
