Apartment Andrei sits across from one of the city's most lovely churches, on Bakats ter, a wooded square and churchyard in central Budapest. The apartment has a large balcony that runs its length and overlooks the park. In spring, summer, and fall the Raday utca side of the square is the scene of a variety of street fairs and arts festivals, close enough to be just outside your door, but far enough away not to be bothersome

Apartment Andrei has a casual elegance for a relaxed and civilized stay. A bit further than our other places from the din of the business district or tourists flocking like lemmings down the pedestrianized theme park streets, Andrei is still in the heart of town, within the innermost ringroad (Korut) arcing the Danube. It offers easy access to public transit -- the 4/6 tram along the Korut, the north/south Blue Metro, the #2 tram along the Danube

But the best way to see the city is on foot: all the major sights are within the ringroad, a stroll interrupted by a cup of coffee at the Eckermann Cafe, a glass of fresh limonade the Cafe Alibi, a Francia Kremes at the Auguszt patisserie, a Soproni beer at the Cafe Gerloczy. Or bring some pastry home from Nandori - a block away - one of Budapest's finest. Two supermarkets are with a block, a pharmacy two blocks, currency exchange around the corner. And Raday utca teeming with galleries and cafes (and Budapest's top-rated fine dining restaurant Costes) is less than a block away. But you want to know about the apartment, not just the neighborhood:

You enter the apartment walking through a foyer past the bedroom with en suite bath, past the wc, with washer/dryer/utility room, into the spacious and stately living room -- 26' x 18' with its long far wall and high ceilings opening onto a 25' balcony that overlooks the verdant historic churchyard. All you hear are the birds, all you see is the slightly tattered park behind the church

A vacation away can be more than a hurtle at warp speed from one tourist geegaw to the next. It can be a restful sojourn, a respite from a busy life, an immersion into a familiar but pleasantly alien culture. A step sideways in space, a bit backwards in time, Andrei is comfortably situated in a Budapest lifestyle that is not just reminiscent of the grand cafe life between the wars, but actually presents its embodiment and draws you into it as though you were a family member not a traveling stranger

Details and design include original tilework in the bath and wc, custom shower with granite tile floor, antiques throughout in an eclectic mix that tips towards Deco and Bauhaus, and high tech amenities from the computer to the free VOIP phone for calling worldwide to the washer, dryer, a/c, and Nespresso machine for your morning coffee (or evening sit on the balcony as you get ready to head out for the evening. )

Andrei is ideal for up to four guests, manageable for up to five. It has a high end super-comfortable Sly Deluxe queen sofabed from Inno Design as well as a pair of matching chairs that make up into a single bed. In the bedroom, a queen bed with mattress from Cardo, Hungary's finest bed company since 1916 (this particular mattress of course is rather more recent: 2009)

We recommend a stay of five or more nights to capture the city's rhythm and immerse yourself into the warm bath of its lifestyle
