One of the main reasons I thought about going to Budapest was because a friend of mine at work at gone not too long ago and she was telling me how cheaply she did it and I just thought what a fantastic way to just get away for a bit and see somewhere new.

So the first thing she suggested to do was rather than book a hotel to stay in, look into AirBnb which is something I'd never tried but after she said flights and a place to stay cost her only £100 altogether and hearing how good AirBnb services were I thought it was the best way to go. I found this cute little apartment that was in the perfect location, not too central but not far from anything at all - the longest we walked for was probably an hour to a place we wanted to go.

It was perfect for the 3 of us, my friend Hannah and I shared the main bed while my sister had the sofa bed in the main area and there was just so much room for us in both beds so no squishing which was great because I hate when you're pretty much living on top of each other which is quite usual if you stay in a hotel.
Because we had a kitchen space it was perfect for us to just make breakfast in the mornings and with a little shop just down the road we popped in to grab some bread, juice and some spreads to have toast - not to mention the crisps we bought for late night snacking when we got in.

What I really liked is that it also had a few personal touches with this amazing Singer sewing machine that I was desperate to take home with me and the host had left 3 bars of chocolate for us on the table which I think was a Hungarian brand, it was just nice little touches like that, that made the accommodation such a lovely place to stay and the host was easy to contact if we needed anything.
I would really recommend using AirBnb for quick little trips away, I know not all locations are as cheap but if you want something a bit more personal and maybe a real feel of the place you are visiting its great. I leave the link here to the place I stayed if you are thinking of making a future trip as I really did love it and it was perfect, with a great location and friendly neighbourhood and a real feel of Budapest in one little street.
