About Ann Barry

My husband Aidan and I live in Co Cork Ireland. We were bowled over by the beauty of Budapest on our first visit.

In 2006 we were delighted to find this real gem that we now call the Danube View apartment.

Ann Barry purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Ann Barry chose Inner City

The Danube View apartment gave us the creative opportunity to restore and modernise a truly wonderful spaces which I loved doing. When thinking of relaxation though it is hard to compete with sitting at that dining table with glass in hand and watching the boats go under those famous Danube bridges. We believe some things are so good they are meant to be shared!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed October 7, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The apartment was just right for a long weekend in Budapest for two people. We loved sitting by the window looking at the view and people watching. Even though it overlooks a busy area you could not hear the traffic and trams at night.

We enjoyed getting picked up by Daniel and getting some inside information from him on Restaurants and things to do and see.



Reviewed September 8, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This was our first trip to Budapest and we loved everything there: people, history, weather, public transport, Danube, food, Daniel's hospitality and his knowledge about the city while picking us up from/to the airport and showing the apartment.

Last but not least we loved the apartment. It made our trip so special. The location was perfect and the view to Danube absolutely fantastic. We sat for hours just by the window and looked the river, Buda castle, Gellert hill, the bridges and cruise ships

Thank you Ann for letting us stay in your lovely little apartment. The location of the apartment, overlooking the Danube and yet so close to the centre of town, was a great bonus, plus the fact that it was so easy to get to Buda on the far side of the river. We were able to walk to most of the main attractions but we also enjoyed riding on the Metro which is easy to use. The added benefit was that one of us was able to make use of the free travel for the over 70's, plus discounts on some of the attractions.

The information which Ann supplied before we arrived was invaluable. We particularly enjoyed the night time boat trip which Ann recommended. Thank you for giving us such happy memories of Budapest.

Everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Bring your binoculars to see in more detail the fabulous buildings and boats ... it is a wonderful view!

Clean, airy, and comfortable Bed. We liked being met there by someone so we were shown how to work all the different things, a/c, washer, etc.

Loved the high ceilings! Great location! Would stay there again.

Location was great

  • 5 of 5

The location and the apartment were great. We took the tram outside once to explore the area, but mostly went out on foot since we right in the middle of it all. We left a few bus tickets on the table cause we didn't use our entire book cause everything was so close. The view is amazing and the tour of the apartment and information with Ester before hand was appreciated. Grocery story is just a few blocks down. We stayed here the last leg of our Europe trip so we opted to have Anne's driver pick us up and drop us off for our 6:30 am flight. Both times they were right on time and saved us a lot of stress. When we left the apartment at 4am to catch our flight the entire corridor was dark and we couldn't figure out how to turn the lights on, but we had flashlights on our phone, just a bit odd there were no lights in the hallway outside of the apt. Anne was great and fast with responding to our emails communication and flexible with our arrival times. Will definitely stay again!

Fabulous property in a very central location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in Budapest and stayed in this wonderful apartment. It is in a beautiful old building with wonderful high ceilings and a great atmosphere. The apartment is on the 4th floor with amazing views across the Danube. You can see the Liberty Statue and Buda Castle from the window. Same views as the Marriott down the street, but much more reasonable. We spent many an evening admiring the view and even watched the fireworks from here on NYE.

The location is really central and we were able to see all of the main attractions of Budapest without ever having to use public transport. Needless to say, we like walking!! The Liberty Statue, Buda Castle, Fisherman's Bastion, St. Mattias Church, Central Market Hall, Parliament, Basillica, Opera House, House of Terror and Heroes Square are all worth seeing.

The apartment is also situated close to shopping and restaurants and the choice was excellent. We particularly enjoyed La Botte (Italian), Pata Negra (Spanish Tapas) and Taverna Dionysos (Greek).

Ann the owner, was fantastic. She sent us lots of information in advance and stayed in touch coming up to our arrival. She also organised for a driver to provide an airport pick up service. We were met at the apartment upon arrival and everything was explained.

The property itself was spacious and well maintained. It has a fairly large living/dining room that leads into the kitchen and a small bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The sofa in the living room is a sofa bed and we spent many an evening after dinner watching DVDs which Ann had kindly left. As there isn't much English TV available, this was really useful.

We had a wonderful time here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property to friends and family.

One Amazing Flat!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely fell in love with Ann's flat in Budapest District 5! It was clean, comfortable, and upscale! The place was nicely updated and the furniture was of good quality. We had amazing views of the Danube with its bridges, the Castle, the Citadel, and the sunsets! For the price and the central location of this residence, we're not sure if we could have found anything better. Ann's communication, accessibility, and friendliness were all welcoming. Her property manager provided the highest level of customer service and was very accommodating to us even with our later than expected arrival. We will definitely recommend this place to any friends visiting the Budapest area, and if we're fortunate enough to visit again, we will certainly reach out to Ann.

Location

Car: not necessary

Travel:

Franz Liszt airport 1, 2/A and 2/B are about 15km away.

The apartment is relatively easily accessible by public transportation. Passengers are taken by a direct bus service (bus 200) to Köbánya-Kispest metro terminal. It takes 22 minutes from terminal 2 and about 10 minutes from terminal 1 to the Metro terminal.

By this 'blue’line (3) Metro from Köbánya-Kispest you can reach our stop Ferenciek Terre in the City centre, about 5 mins walk from the apartment.

Distances:

Situated in the most central part of downtown Budapest, within walking distance of most tourist attractions.

Car hire is not necessary within the city as public transport facilities are excellent from the apartment.

Further Details:

My agent, collects for 35 euro. His pickup and return fare is 55 euro.

Also there is an official airport taxi cabin directly outside the airport terminal exit door. You request your taxi there and give your destination address. A taxi usually comes immediately.
