1064 Budapest:                              
Andrassy út 20.:                             
2 em./ 6 ajt., csengő: 2:              

postal code (including the district number) and name of town

name of the street and number (út, utca = road, street)

floor 2./ door 6., doorbell: 2


The 2 medium numbers in your postal code is the number of the district of Budapest. Now you are staying in the 6th district. (e.g. 1214 is the 21st district). District numbers are usually used in Roman numerals. 6th = VI. or 21st=XXI.
