Gwen, U.K., 2/13/22: Oh my goodness – Peter’s fantastic property right in the heart of the Jewish Quarter was amazing. So clean and central and quiet – we didn’t hear a sound from outside. The area was perfectly placed to explore the beautiful Budapest – Heroes’ Square, the outdoor ice rink and thermal baths, the zoo, cruises on the Danube, the beautiful parliament buildings and Buda palace/Matthias Church on the Buda side… all just amazing. We even took a trip out to the Buda hills and visited the Children’s Railway which was incredible. So much to do in your beautiful city – would recommend the walking tours! We had my eight year old daughter with us and couldn’t believe how much there was to do with kids in the city. We would highly recommend Peter’s apartment to anyone – he is a brilliant host and couldn’t have been more helpful! Thanks Peter!
John, U.K., 2/15/20: What a fabulous apartment in a superb location. The apartment is even better than it looks with many original features. It is also very spacious, warm and well appointed. We loved our Budapest break and we are already discussing a return. Peter’s place will be first on our list!
Anja, Germany, 1/31/20: Fast, easy communication, perfectly easy handling with the keys etc. wonderful, huge, clean centrally located flat. I‘d swap again with Peter immediately. Thank you!
Ron, U.S.A., 11/15/19: Peter was an exceptional host. He kept in continual contact and answered our every little concern or question. His apartment in Budapest is stunning! Very well equipped and in the heart of the Jewish Quarter where most of the night life is. Close to all the wonderful ruin bars, near the Metro and the incredible baths of Budapest. Peter’s information booklet is full of great recommendations and his numerous Budapest guidebooks in the apartment were very well appreciated and a useful addition to our stay. We would love to come back and stay at Laszlo’s Classic Budapest apartment! Thank you so much Peter for a 5 star exchange.
Steve, USA, 11/6/19: I never thought about visiting Budapest. After receiving an exchange request I thought I would give it a go. What a blast it was!! Peter knows Budapest well. We followed his advice on several activities and were never disappointed. Getting in was easy and the location of his spot is perfect. Overall it was an amazing experience for us!!!!
Karl, USA, 9/25/19: The apartment is a beautiful classic European spacious apartment, with nice wood floors and high ceilings. It has all the comforts of a modern apartment, a fully equipped kitchen and contemporary artwork, many of it by local artists, on the walls. Furnishing are comfortable and good quality. There is a nice balcony as well. The location is also great, nearby to countless restaurants, bars, breweries and sites. Even though it is in a lively nightlife district, the apartment stays quiet with the bedroom (and its soundproof door) near the internal courtyard, not overlooking the street. It is easily a place one could stay for a long weekend or a month and feel refreshed and adventurous. Peter was a great host and his manager Anna was always available and very friendly. Budapest is a great and authentic city to visit, retains some of its Eastern European grit, and has tons to offer and explore. We will definitely be back and look to stay here again.
Ann, U.K., 8/19/19: Peter’s apartment is outstanding. It is perfectly located in Budapest to enjoy the wonderful Jewish quarter with an amazing array of restaurants, cafes and pubs close by. There is also a large Spar shop within a few minutes walk from the apartment. I can’t recommend this apartment enough – it has everything you need to make your stay in Budapest a memorable one. It is really spacious, bright and airy and tastefully decorated. Peter’s recommendations of local restaurants proved very useful. The lovely little balcony was put to good use both morning and evening- very relaxing watching the world go by, sipping a glass of wine! And even though you are at the heart of the Jewish quarter, the actual street is really quiet. As I say – just perfect! Definitely stay in this apartment.
Laurianne, France, 8/12/19: Very nice flat, with lots of light , nice deco, lots of place for 4 people. Very well situated in the night life district but quiet (4th floor, with elevator). I highly recommend.
Steph, U.K., 4/22/19: Great apartment that I would highly recommend. The check in process was very smooth, the location is fantastic, the house was nice and clean and had everything you could want. I would definitely stay again!
Sue, USA, 12/16/18: Special thanks to my cousin for hosting us in his awesome apartment. He rents this out and it is in a great neighborhood with easy access to every form of mass transportation. I highly recommend it and it’s named after our beloved grandfather, Elek Laszlo.
George, USA, 12/5/18: Laszlo’s Classic is situated in probably the most eclectic of Budapest districts, that is undergoing heavy transformation. The neighborhood provides an excellent glimpse into the diversity of many cultural layers coexisting: the mysteries of the Jewish quarter with the gritty communist past, the glitzy glamour of the New York Palace with the many bars frequented by young tourists and locals alike. You will certainly not get bored and you’ll visit many cities simultaneously while there. The apartment is very well-equipped, clean and spacious and paintings from contemporary Hungarian artists line the walls, which I found to be a very nice touch. The host’s representative Anna was very nice, informative and took care of many last minute complications with a big smile. Their attention to detail is exemplary and inventiveness boundless. So in sum: if you are looking at experiencing the charm of bourgeois ages bygone, but stay fully connected to the vibes of this up-and-coming district, look no further and book yourself into Laszlo’s.
Josef, USA, 11/5/18: We very much enjoyed our month of October stay in your apartment. Central location was great, as we walked or used the public transport system to go anywhere in Budapest. The apartment was clean, modern, well furnished and accommodating. Your choice of local food and beverage goods for stocking the refrigerator prior to my arrival was excellent and well worth the incidental cost. Would like to visit again in the springtime perhaps after next year. I will keep you well informed in advance of any plans for a future visit. Thanks again for all your help and hospitality. Looking forward to the next visit.
David, USA, 7/8/18: This was the highlight of our trip — a great apartment, lots of space, right in the middle of everything. Well supplied, and Peter’s manual has plenty of helpful phone numbers and restaurant suggestions. Why deal with crowded hotel rooms when you can stretch out and enjoy the space? Highly recommended for couples or families.
Amy, USA, 7/2/18: Spacious, comfortable, authentic apartment in a vibrant and historic neighborhood. Convenient to public transportation and main train station. Very helpful property manager and accessible owner. Happy to provide a more personal reference upon request. firstname.lastname@example.org
Elaine, Canada, 6/2/18: We enjoyed 4 wonderful days in Budapest staying at Laszlo’s Budapest apartment. The apartment is bright, clean and spacious, with everything you may need to feel at home. It is in a great location, within walking distance of a huge number of restaurants, cafes, and pubs. Both Peter and his manager Anna were friendly, helpful and made us feel welcome and at home. Peter’s list of suggested activities, bars and restaurants helped us make the best use of our short time in the city and greatly contributed to our enjoyment of this unique and vibrant neighborhood. We loved Budapest and would highly recommend Laszlo’s Classic Apartment. Thanks Peter, we are already dreaming about visiting again and spending more time in this amazing city!
Ute, Germany, 4/16/18: Large apartment, nicely decorated. Everything is there from dishwasher to washing machine and to welcome there is Palinka. The apartment is centrally located but quiet. Everything is within easy reach: supermarket, metro, restaurants u.v.m. We did not miss anything.
Andreas, Germany, 4/1/18: Thank you, your apartment is super. Budapest is beautiful, only the weather can be better.
Petra, The Netherlands, 8/1/17: This spacious Budapest apartment was our home base for a one week visit to this marvelous city. Peter’s friend Diana welcomed us and showed us around the apartment. All rooms were spotlessly clean and the linens and towels were generously supplied. Although the kitchen is well-equipped, we chose to discover the Hungarian cuisine in a few of the many restaurants in the neighborhood. Shops and supermarkets are within walking distance and the city center is only a few blocks away. Thank you Peter for providing valuable information ahead and thank you Diana for arranging transport to the airport in the middle of the night. We will most definitely recommend your apartment to any of our friends who are planning a trip to Budapest.
Judy, USA, 1/19/17: Thanks for allowing me to enjoy your Budapest apartment. The apartment itself was quite large with all the modern necessities. The location was centrally located for all the sites in Budapest. The metro and bus services were within a short walk of the apartment. Many wonderful restaurants as well as local markets within steps of the apartment. I look forward to returning to Budapest one day again, and enjoying Laszlo’s apartment once again! Thanks for the hospitality!
Sarah, U.K. 1/4/17: The location of this apartment is amazing within the Jewish district, which is very hip and versatile, having both great restaurants, shops and a good nightlife. The apartment is beautiful and perfect for both two couples or a family – thanks for a great stay!!
Veronica and Ricardo, USA, 9/21/16: We want to tell you how we miss your condo in Budapest, we go through flashbacks very often and regret that our time was so short, but definitely intense. Your condo reminded us of our a Victorian house in San Francisco, with spacious rooms, high ceilings and hardwood floors. We found the location ideal for us to walk, which we did a lot of to the river and along the way discovered some other great treasures, like shops, restaurants and Synagogues. So after spending a full-day taking in the sights it was good to come to a place that felt like home in a neighborhood where we could pick up a good inexpensive meal at many places near the condo. The people were always friendly and spoke some English, which was helpful. We hope to have another opportunity to return someday and stay longer. Thank you again for all your kindness and guidance. We were privileged to be your guest and we felt like family in your place.
Henrietta, U.K., 8/10/16: A spacious and beautiful apartment, staying here was a real treat. Right in the Jewish Quarter so easy access to great restaurants and bars. I would highly recommend staying here.
Laurie, USA, 7/16/16: We had such a wonderful time! Your apartment was lovely, and the convenience (location, how nicely stocked everything was, Anna’s and your attentiveness) could not have been better. We will be referring others your way.
Phil, USA, 5/8/16: This was a wonderful place to stay: close to the Metro, Walking distance to many of Budapest’s great sights, and surrounded by excellent bars, restaurants and music venues. It was also nice to have full kitchen and laundry.
Maureen, USA, 5/3/16: Laszlo’s Classic Budapest apartment is a large, airy, comfortable space in a great location. The building is a bit funky but the apartment is clean, comfortable and very well appointed, from toiletries to cooking utensils and supplies from olive oil to spices. In spite of being located in a bustling neighborhood, it’s 4th floor location (with a good elevator) makes it completely quiet at night. We enjoyed the small balcony out front and the spacious living/dining area for relaxing. Budapest is gorgeous, and we could pick up the metro or taxis just a block away. Anna was extremely helpful and speaks perfect English. I highly recommend it!
Laura, USA, 4/28/16: I spent almost a week in Laszlo’s Budapest apartment and loved it. The manager, Anna, greeted us with lots of fresh fruit, and teas, coffee, and honey for the morning. Our flight had been several hours late, and it was late at night by the time we arrived at the apartment, so it was great to have some food to snack on immediately, especially because we had two kids with us. The apartment was absolutely gorgeous, with high ceilings, fabulous chandeliers, and lots of great art on the walls. It was stocked with everything we needed, including cooking utensils (not that we did much cooking!) and a washing machine. I especially loved the selection of homemade fruit brandy that Peter leaves for guests to sample. Half a block away is a convenience store, and there’s a great supermarket with a bakery and other nice shops selling cheeses and meats just a block further. Peter has lots of suggestions for activities and places to eat in the guest manual. I highly recommend following up on some of these. All of the meals we had out were outstanding and surprisingly cheap. There’s so many places to check out within walking distance of the apartment, and taxis are also cheap if you want to go further. All in all, we had a great time and we’ll definitely stay at Laszlo’s again if we’re ever back in Budapest.
Angélique et Vincent, Paris, France, 10/20/15: Très bel appartement décoré avec gout. On s’y sent comme chez soi! Il est bien situé (accès métro au bout de la rue et vie nocturne à proximité). Adresse à ne pas rater pour passer un séjour inoubliable dans cette magnifique ville de Budapest!
Laura, Toronto, Canada, 10/13/15: We visited Budapest for 10 nights in October 2105 and stayed in Peter’s (Laszlo’s) apartment. The apartment is bright, spacious and well equipped with everything that you need to be comfortable. It is also very conveniently located to wonderful restaurants, and the City’s superb public transit system. Peter and his local representative are helpful and work hard to make sure you enjoy your holiday. They even make available a Hungarian plan iPhone!
Lou, USA, 9/30/15: This apartment is a very good deal at its price. It is spacious, with high ceilings and substantial rooms. The dining room really is a dining room. The apartment is in very good condition, and is well equipped in terms of kitchen supplies, toiletries, and quality linens. The manager and the owner (who was in Budapest when we visited, but lives in the US) are extremely helpful in terms of what to do in Budapest and in offering anything that the visitor might need.
Francis, U.K., 8/28/15: Peter’s apartment was very stunning beautiful. When i arrived i was greeted by very friendly Anne, who was very friendly and helpful, she showed me around what turned out to be a very impressive five star apartment. The place itself is very spacious, breezy and tastefully decorated. It had everything you could imagine needing and more. Location is perfect because although it was beutifully peaceful and quiet, it was also fantastically located for all the local bars and restaurants, which within a short walk. I have absolutely no hesitation fully recommending Peters place to anyone wanting a extra special base in Budapest. Thanks Peter!
Ian, USA, 8/19/15: I had a truly wonderful experience with Peter in Budapest. What a city and The apartment has an authentic feel but has been fully renovated. Peter was friendly, flexible, and organized. Meeting Anna, his assistant was easy and he allowed me to book and extra night last minute which made the trip even better. I love the restaurants in the area and the Danube is only a couple stops away. Highly recommend this apartment!
Nick, Australia, 7/28/15: Excellent apartment. Service was first class. Greeted on arrival and departure. The location was perfect and the apartment was even better than in the photos. Very spacious. Thanks Peter for making our stay in Hungary very enjoyable.
David, USA, 6/20/15: We had a wonderful stay at Laszlo’s apartment. From the first moment of initial inquiry with Peter to our final moment returning the key to Anna, we had a memorable and authentic experience. It was the perfect home base for visiting Budapest and learning about life in this beautiful city. Thank you!
Ryan, USA, 6/14/15: My wife and four children had a wonderful time in Budapest in Peter’s apartment. The manager, Anna, was very helpful. She met us on arrival and was always available for assistance if needed. We arrived during an unusual heat wave. When we notified Peter regarding how hot it was, he quickly responded by having Anna purchase and assemble some additional fans for us, which was very helpful. Also, we left two valuable items in the apartment after departure, which Anna graciously sent to us. Thanks again, Peter and Anna!
The apartment itself is in a very nice area of Budapest, and within walking distance of Keleti train station. We really enjoyed meandering the streets between Peter’s apartment and the Danube river. Fantastic restaurants (thanks for the recommendations, Peter), markets, parks, cathedrals, museums, and of course the beautiful buildings along the river banks. There’s a rich history and culture here to explore – plenty for everyone from college students looking for a cool place to hang out to WWII buffs wanting a glimpse of pre and post communist life in Hungary. Overall, a terrific experience and a great place to stay when you’re in Budapest!
Wendy, USA, 10/13/14: We had a wonderful time in Budapest at your apartment. It was very nice.
Jason, U.S.A, 9/26/14: Everything is amazing. So beautiful here. You do have 1 problem, making me leave Budapest and your flat, lol. I can not thank you enough for everything. It certainly was a great start to the journey. Every restaurant and bar you recommended was amazing. Everyone was awesome and kind. I left a bottle of wine for you as a Thanks. Hope you enjoy it. Again, thanks.
Scharlottes, Paris France , 8/30/14: “Great”. Very nice apartment in a beautiful city. Practical and pleasant. We had a great time.
Clara, Germany, August 2014: Peter’s apartment is just perfect for staying in Budapest and exploring that wonderful city. It’s located in the Jewish quarter with a lot of bars and restaurants nearby and the red metro is less than 7 min away, so you really don’t need a car. As the apartment is on the highest floor (there’s an elevator!), it is very bright and friendly and you’re not disturbed by the noise of the street. The apartment itself is very clean and modern without loosing the charm of the old building. At first there was a little problem with the door, but the lovely manager Anna took care immediately and did everything to fix it. We were so lucky that we found such a nice accommodation! Thank you Peter for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment!
David, U.K., 7/29/14: Great apartment!
Will Threadgould, Australia, May 2014: First of all I must thank the Owner of the apartment Peter Balogh. He has given me and my family the utmost support, during what turned out to be a very distressing time in Budapest. This was due to our personal circumstances and nothing to do with the Apartment. We were able to extend our stay, three or four times, thanks to Peters understanding and flexibility. You will find him and his Manager Anna to be most accommodating and helpful. The apartment is excellent, spacious, clean, modern elegant, and in an ideal location with good transport system, close by and many restaurants and bars within easy walking. I have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to anyone.
