Charming Brody House in lovely Budapest
Brody House, for tasteful travellers in search of stylish secrets.
First time I heard of Brody House was the moment we won a ‘one night stay’ in this charming boutique house, at the raffle of Transylvanian Rolling Ball. Later on, we met one of the owners, a very nice Englishman, settled in the enchanting former Imperium capital.. so, more intrigued about this place seen only in pictures, we had to go for it.
We found Brody House behind an imposing door, on a quiet street, few meters from the Hungarian Natural History Museum and just a short walk from the river and the sights and sounds of the downtown.
More than just a boutique hotel, Brody House is offering a mix of emotions difficult to describe. Here the creativity rules with great art pieces and interior design, in an elegant-chic atmosphere and the most comfortable setting. The rooms, ranging € 70- € 105 euro, are quirky but incredibly chic, mini galleries, each named after the artist whose work is exposed inside. The lounge area is incredible with amazing artworks and cozy fireplaces, with high ceilings, lots of natural light and original parquet floors. The central courtyard is a pleasingly quiet place in which to have a glass of wine.
After a long decision-making, we chose the Tinei and the Claret rooms. Tinei is probably the most romantic, with the glamorous golden bathtub in the middle of the room and works by Moldovan artist, Alexander Tinei. Claret room is old fashioned, of beautiful decor on „white” theme and incredibly chic.
Breakfast in the bright spacious dining area was delightful. The common area is decorated with cool art and sculptures. It’s a real unique pleasure to discover every piece of art and the artist behind it.
This place is so beautiful and unique….loved every minute here.
The staff are friendly ladies, helpful and very accommodating. Just ask them and you’ll receive useful suggestions on great dining places around the city.
Great restaurants were also close by which made our experience extremely pleasant: Bock Bisztró on Erzsébet Street- a modern taking on Hungarian classics, with a great list of Hungarian wines. Another place we enjoyed was Madame Noi- Thai & Vietnamese restaurant, on the famous Andrássy Str.
Here is a carefully selected range of photos from the hundreds I took.. pretty hard not to immortalise every little detail.
