Riverview Apartment Budapest

Overview

Riverview Apartment has been completely renovated, decorated and furnished in August 2006. Riverview Apartment is located in one of the most central locations in Budapest, at the beginning of the vibrant Danube promenade, with a view of the River Danube and the Buda Hills from the balcony and adjacent to the Marriott Hotel - great for those business travellers with meetings in the hotel. Less than 50 meters walk from Vaci utca, Budapests main shopping street and the famous Gerbeaud coffee house and a great selection of restaurants, cafes and bars for every taste, including the well known expat hangout, The Stage Pub. The apartment area is 33m2, plus a 5m2 balcony. Relax in the sun on the balcony with table and chairs and a view over the river.

Riverview is a studio apartment which includes a living and separated bed area, kitchenette and bathroom with shower and WC. Out of consideration for our guests we have made this a non-smoking apartment. Smoking is permitted however on the balcony.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced and centrally located cosy little apartment in Budapest (Pest) look no further! Although unspectacular from the outside, the Riverview Apartment is just perfect on the inside and also has a balcony with a view of the Danube. The location is so central that we could walk everywhere and there were lots of cafes, pubs and restaurants nearby too. The lovely owners Martin and Gabi had thought of everything we could possibly need for a week in Budapest. There was a pint of milk in the fridge for our coffee in the morning and they even gave us a local mobile phone to call them in case of any problems. If you are visiting Budapest we highly recommend the Riverview Apartment. Ally and David (Dublin)

The Riverview Apartment was a great little place to call home while on vacation in Budapest. The owner, Martin, and his wife Gabbi took excellent care of us, including picking us up from the airport and making themselves available to us if we had any questions or concerns while in Budapest. The location of the apartment is fantastic, it is close to the famous Vaci utca and there are lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The apartment itself was very clean and provided us with everything we needed, truly a home away from home. What a great stay!

Posted on TripAdvisor.com 22. August, 2007Budapest: Riverview Apartments: "A little gem in Budapest" The Riverview apartment is run by Martin and Gabbi two lovely people, who went out their way to make our holiday perfect. Martin is British and his wive is Hungarain. The apartment is in Pest and from the balcony you can see the buda hills and the river Danube. The apartment is within walking distance to all transports and shops. The apartment has a kitchen with everything you could wish for and yes that does include a Toaster!... Double bed. Lounge with a Dvd player, Flatscreen tv, and a great selection of dvds and music. Bathroom which has a shower, toilet and wash basin. Towels, soap, Hairdryer, Iron and ironing board are all included in the this wonderful river view apartment. I would like to thank Martin and Gabbi for a wonderful holiday and allowing us to stay at this super apartment.From Katy and Rick (Blackpool) xPosted on TripAdvisor:: 7:35 am, April 20, 2007 As Ive just recently stayed at this apartment, I thought Id post a bit about it here. Having travelled many times to Budapest, Ill start out by saying that apartments are generally a much better deal than hotels. You can find some real bargains in great locations that cost much less than a comparable hotel in the same area. Having said that, Ive ended up booking somewhere really awful without having seen it first, which is why Im posting this. Of all the places I have stayed in hotels or otherwise - this one is definitely the best. Its in a great location, literally a few yards from one of the main pedestrian cafes and shopping streets in Budapest, and by the river Danube. Because its just off on a side road, it is very quiet despite the central location, but is near several transport links to other main areas of the city. It has a balcony, from which you get a gorgeous view of the river and some lovely architecture, and the flat itself is a very good sized spacious studio. The bathroom and kitchen are both excellent and well equipped (not always the case in Hungary), and the whole apartment is maintained to a really high standard. It has the sort of feeling like a home from home. The decor is lovely, everything was spotless when I arrived, and the apartment owners are unbelievably nice, even after I had kept them waiting for over an hour after I misunderstood where we were meeting. They provided complimentary wine, mineral water, milk, jam, olives, pasta etc.. Basically, I cannot recommend this place enough. The combination of a beautiful apartment, perfect location, very reasonable price and really lovely owners makes this a real find.

Also, there is an ADSL modem for use free-of-charge. If you are visiting Budapest we highly recommend the Riverview Apartment.
