About Bridgett Gill

Myself (Bridgett Gill) and my partner (Brendan Wheatley) are in our sixties and involved in the world of opera. We run Swansea City Opera, a mid scale opera company which tours all over the UK, and a registered charity. The history, culture and love of music of the Hungarian people were a great influencing factor in our decision to buy a classical apartment in Budapest. We were looking for an investment for our retirement and had planned to visit three countries before making our choice, but after seeing the beauty of Budapest and finding the Hungarian people so friendly and welcoming, we decided to look no further. We hope you love the city us much as we do!

Bridgett Gill purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Bridgett Gill chose Budapest

Why we chose this location: Because we live in a very old cottage in Wales and love historic houses, we were looking for a building and apartment that had history and original features. We think we have found the perfect apartment and have completely renovated and restored it with a lot of love and thought. The rooms have beautiful oak floors and magnificent, high ceilings with period lights. Original pictures and limited edition prints decorate the walls. If you love architecture and history this apartment is a perfect choice.

What makes this apartment unique

As well as being in a beautiful building, the apartment is close to all forms of public transport, and central to all the tourist attractions and the Opera House. There is a supermarket directly opposite the house and In addition, because we love good food and wine, we chose a location with good restaurants and cafes close by! By the way I can heartily recommend Hungarian wine, not a lot of it is sold abroad as they keep most of it for themselves!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bridgett

A quick note to say thank you for letting us stay in your lovely apartment over the New Year. Everything was perfect with the apartment - very comfortable and great location. A beautiful city with so much to see and do. Attila was fantastic. Our flight out was delayed a couple of hours due to the fog so we were really pleased he and his colleague were there to pick us all up. Lovely to see the city still lit up with Christmas decorations and the fireworks over the Danube to bring in the New Year. Thanks again for all your help.

The apartment is in the perfect location, near the Basilica in the prestigious District 5. All the top tourist attractions are within an easy 10 min walking distance, including the Opera House, Parliament, National Art Museum, Castle District and the funicular railway, the Famous Chain Bridge and the Vaci Utca shopping street. It is also close to a supermarket and a covered market where you can by excellent fresh produce. It is also, very importantly, only 2 mins walk from some very good bars and restaurants; the Hungarians have some really excellent wine and food! The nearest metro station is 5 mins walk away, and bus and tram stops are 2 mins away. The apartment is also close to the street which houses all the prime antique shops specialising in Biedermeier and Art Deco furniture. Budapest is regaining its former glory, there is street after street of fabulous architecture, many buildings are fully renovated and many still have their rather shabby-chique charm.

Notes:
The apartment is fully centrally heated but has no air-conditioning, there are two floor standing electric fans. In the interests of all wishing to use the apartment, this accommodation is strictly no smoking and we are unable to accept pets. The apartment is also not suitable for children under 10 years old. Strictly no hen or stag parties. There are no special adaptations in the apartment but we have had one lady with limited mobility, who often used a wheelchair, staying at the apartment with a friend. She said she managed well but could not have managed on her own. There are 10 shallow steps up to the lift, but the steps have a hand rail and once out of the lift, the corridor around the courtyard is wide. The doors in the apartment (apart from the one into the en-suite bathroom) are also wide enough for a wheel chair.

Clean well appointed 2 BATHROOM modern kitchen apartment in EXCELLENT location!

  • 5 of 5

Location was five stars for sure. Blocks from the river, the market (dont miss this one, eat upstairs! very welcoming!) , the parliament, mass transit. There is also a grocery store across the street and two restaurants at the doorstep, and let us not forget the gelato place on the corner. Our favorite way to end the day was with gelato!! Our taxi driver was wonderful who willingly gave us a brief history of Budapest as he drove us across town, helped us with our bags, showed us how everything worked in the apt. and gave us a wonderful first impression of the city. The apt. was clean and was above our expectations. There were guidebooks to peruse and converters for us Americans who did not bring enough to charge the kids phones! The courtyard garden is very peaceful...and well taken care of. Owner very easy to correspond with and Atilla who Bridgett recommended for pick up from our arrival point was fantastic!! Would highly recommend his services. Beds very comfortable. Thank you for a great stay. Lovely city. We will be back to Budapest for sure, and most noteably to this apt. Thank you again for such a lovely clean modern apartment. The sep. bedrooms for parents and each teen was wonderful. Two full bathrooms made it easy to get out for the day. The washer machine was easy to use and worked great. The grocery has some very delicious pastry, coffee in a carton single serve, and yogurt smoothies. I even brought back coffee as souvenirs from grocery!

The apartment is classically styled which makes it quite dark but we only slept there. There is everything you need for a home from home. V comfy mattresses. Fabulous shower. The location is excellent and there are plenty of restaurants on the doorstep. Bridgett replies to all queries and Attilla is a handy point of contact.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Nice apartment within easy walking distance of the chain bridge, parliament, basilica, shopping and many, many bars and restaurants. Lovely kitchen and bathrooms in a nice apartment building with a stunningly pretty courtyard. Great communication with the owner, Bridgett, and her local support, Atilla, who collected us from the station and took us to the airport on departure. Would definitely stay here again.

Really well located apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in a great location - less than 10 minutes walk from the Chain Bridge and the Parliament building. It's in a quiet street but close to lots of cafés and restaurants. There is no air conditioning but the fans provided work well. It was a bit cramped for two adults and two older teenagers, as one person had to sleep in the living room - but it was good having two bathrooms.

perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Good restaurants nearby, easy walk to many sights and public transportation. Comfortable apartment. Would get 5 stars except the kitchen was small and keeping low living room windows open for cross-ventilation exposes the room to a walkway just outside. Atilla was prompt and friendly getting us from the train station and back to the airport. Would definitely come back.
