The flat you are about to discover used to be my first home when I moved back from Belgium to Budapest 10 years ago. You may be wondering why I decided to settle down in this neighborhood. Well, the vicinity of the town’s best Belgian brasserie certainly influenced my decision, however there is much more to tell about this neighborhood (called “Újlipótváros” “New Lipot town”). This popular middle-class/intellectual residential district was built in the late 1920s. During the second World War II, it was a safehaven for Jews in the Nazi-occupied Budapest, thanks to Raoul Wallenberg, a sweedish diplomat, who issued protective passports and sheltered Jews in buildings designated as Swedish territory. This is now history, but if you walk in the streets of Ujlipótváros today you may still sense that spirit of freedom and respect of universal values.
Well, I would be happy to give you more interesting facts about Újlipótváros, but you are here for the flat, right?! So, let’s talk about it:
It’s a studio with a separate kitchen, bathroom and toalette (45 sqm) on the 3rd floor of a typical Bauhaus building with a view on the street and the back garden.
The living room is fully furnished with WiFi and TV (although you are probably not going to switch it on). Ideally sleeps 2 persons.
The kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you should need for a comfortable stay: coffe maker, kettle, toaster, fridge, electric cooker and all the necessary pans, cutlery and dishes.
It’s conveniently located with easy access to main public transport lines (tramway nr. 4-6, metro line nr 3., train station Nyugati, boat.), which ensures that you can reach all corners of the city in both Buda, Pest and beyound.
Morning meals are equally simple to procure, there are groceries, bakeries, and a market around the corner and you can find a café serving breakfast in St. Stephan park or on the enbankment of the Danube facing Margaret island. Numerous cafés (don’t worry not only Belgian!), restaurants and bars in the neighborhood! I can give you a more exhaustive list upon your arrival.
I’am flexible regarding arrival/leaving time.
For any inquiries please don’t hesitate to contact me!
See you soon!
