After recently staying in an Airbnb in Budapest and completely falling in love with the vibe of the place I thought I’d share my experience. As soon as this flat popped up in my search results I knew this was the perfect place to stay and after reading some reviews and checking the area was ok I went ahead and booked it. It had huge ceilings and a modern interior with a Scandinavian style. All open plan with the bedroom being up a set of stairs. The place is located on a road just off the main street and you have to go through a secure door to access it. It’s a ground floor flat with two huge windows although they didn’t let a lot of natural light in due to the placement of other surroundings flats. This isn’t a huge issue just something I was aware of when photographing inside.
When you go into the flat the first thing you see is the kitchen. It’s quaint and cosy and I absolutely love how they hung the plants with the pots and pans! It has everything you need for a short stay, my only complaint was there wasn’t any tea or coffee but maybe thats just an England airbnb thing or the ones I’ve stayed in anyway.
The living space follows around to your left, my favourite part being this snug corner, with the rustic coloured lamp and tall plant sitting next to the grey and cream sofa, the kind of sofa I’d pick for my own place. The grey ties in nicely with yellow and pink cushions. The yellow matching the blinds and the floor in the bathroom as well as the walls in the bedroom. Although Budapest was warm I still found myself snuggled up in the super soft blanket watching Netflix for an hour or so.
This place is great for adults but not safe for children due to the open staircase and only a bit of rope around the bedroom. Even I didn’t feel that safe on the stairs especially stumbling up and down them tipsy. They’re a huge part of the whole Scandinavian vibe though and it definitely opens the whole place up. The bathroom is through the door next to the staircase, I’d say it was more like a wet room, it fitted in with the whole feel of the flat though. There’s even a washing machine which I did use a couple of times and came in handy. The tv was a great size and much to our delight we were happy to find it was a smart tv meaning Netflix was accessible.
Overall we were happy with our stay here, it had everything we needed for the three nights and I’d highly recommend it due to the location being within walking distance to the city centre. A full travel diary of what we got up to in Budapest will be up in a few days!
