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 and in 2004 we were lucky enough to buy our first apartment there (Elegance in the Heart) which is a very large three bedroom apartment literally a few steps from the most famous shopping street Vaci Utca. We use it as our holiday home and visit several times each year.

Ann Barry purchased this apartment in 2004

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment gave us the creative opportunity to restore and modernize what are truly wonderful spaces which I loved doing. They also provided a place to hang my art, which is my other hobby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apt is huge and bright and as the name suggests so elegant. It was extremely comfortable and warm no matter what room you were in. There was sleeping area's for 10 people and three bathrooms. Ceilings tall and bright and so clean. It was an absolute pleasure to stay in and I will definitely be staying there again ...Ladyluck, Dublin, Ireland

I was surprised by how large the apartment was. It

was also very elegant, bright and comfortable.

It was great to be able to walk out and be in the

centre of everything. This gave it a real holiday


Because the windows faced onto Haris Koz, it was much

quieter than I had imagined it would be. A lovely

apartment. It gave our holiday a touch of luxury....Kenneth

We could not believe the size and location of the apartment which easily accommodated us all. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The design meant that you didn't have to disturb other people to get to the kitchen or bathrooms in the morning...Nicola, Le

Beautiful, spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

It's six weeks or since we returned from Hungary but we're still remembering the wonderful time we had staying in Ann's beautiful apartment. Budapest was looking its sunny best and we spent ten days in the city, catching up with long-lost Hungarian cousins, seeing the sights, and having some great days out.

A large part of the holiday's success was the accommodation. We were speechless when Daniel showed us in on the first day - the flat is so large and spacious: we reckon we got fit simply by walking around it. The rooms were so elegant - we really liked the double windows with all their brass fittings - they look like they've been there for ever. Everything worked, the beds were comfortable, and the location was perfect for the city, allowing us to walk to most places. When we did need the excellent public transport, it was all available within a few minutes' walk.

There were (very good) street cafes outside, and because we had the windows open, we moved our day backwards a bit so that we went to sleep when the music stopped - but there's nothing wrong with that on holiday.

Daniel and Abris were very helpful with welcoming and taxi services respectively.

Would we stay here again if we visited Budapest? Definitely - we couldn't imagine a better place for a holiday base in the city. Thank you Ann.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment with everything you could need. Very central and close to all amenities. Although central there was no bother with noise at night. Would thoroughly recommend staying there.

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally spacious apartment in a central location! Plenty of sleeping areas and bathrooms for our group of 5. The apartment was comfortable and it had a very well equipped kitchen and entertaining DVDs (we had some rainy evenings). Ann provided great information before the visit and Daniel, who met us at the apartment gave great suggestions for food and travel about the city - he even drove with us to the best garage for parking. The building had an elevator, which was convenient for luggage and tired feet after a long day walking around the city! Restaurants in the area were plentiful, as was shopping and transportation. Would recommend this apartment for a large group -- it was perfect!

Spacious, comfortable and in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our group of five adults and was incredible value. It was very spacious, well equipped and very clean. The information from the owner was excellent and Daniel, who met us on arrival, was very helpful. The apartment is in a great location and we walked almost everywhere. We had dinner twice on Vaci Utca - "Carabela" and "Salt and Pepper" - both were excellent. We highly recommend this apartment for a stay in Budapest.

Well equipped and well placed

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the apartment. The owner and the agent were helpful and gave us some good tips. I think it could be lacking another bathroom if a large party stayed - we were a group of 4.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I travelled with my husband and three friends for a four night stay in this apartment and we were all thrilled with it. The apartment is spacious with a well equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, plus an extra toilet, large living room, TV room, free wifi, and all in a wonderful location. Straight out of the door into a pedestrianised area with the Elizabeth Bridge and the Danube a couple of minutes away. It couldn't have been better. The information sent to us by the owner was so useful and the young man who met us to give us the key was pleasant and helpful. We would recommend the apartment to anyone and would certainly book it again if we ever return to Budapest - which is a beautiful city full of history, great bars and restaurants and amazing buildings.

Car: not necessary


Franz Liszt airport 1, 2/A and 2/B are about 15km away. There is a minibus service from the airport. If you are arriving by car, my agent Daniel will advise you on best car parking lots in city centre.The apartment is also easily accessible by public transportation. Passengers are taken by a direct bus service (bus 200) to Köbánya-Kispest metro terminal. By this blue line (3) Metro from Köbánya-Kispe to Ferenciek Terre which is less than 5 mins walk from the apartment.


Situated in the most central and popular part of downtown, pedestrianized 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:

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.

The taxi should cost between 6,000 and 7,000 forints which is about 22 or 23 euro. It takes about 20 or 25 minutes to reach the city centre.

If preferred, my agent will collect for 35 euro. His pick up and return fare is 55 euro for up to 4 passengers. Extra passengers 5 euro per person per trip extra. His car can take 8 passengers.

If there is no arrival booking on your departure day, you can leave any time. If however there is an arrival you need to be packed by 12 midday. Your luggage can be stored in the hall of the apartment until it is time for you to leave for the airport.

The availability calendar is maintained up- to-date.

Special events and a period including New Year's eve may cost a little extra.
