I was in Budapest, Hungary way back in 2001.  The city is a charming eclectic mix of beautiful buildings and I enjoyed exploring both banks of the River Danube.  My friend and I stayed at a crummy little hostel which was perfectly serviceable but now I’m thinking we definitely missed the mark trying to save a few quid.  Oh to be young, broke and fancy-free.

This little jewel, however, has made me start thinking that another trip is definitely in order now that I’m older, wiser and have a more discerning palette when it comes to where to park my fabulous leopard-print suitcase.

The gorgeous Brody House was originally built in the mid-1800’s and then rebuilt in 1896 and is now a hub of creativity, supporting both local and international artists with original art in every room.  In addition, the concierge is said to be so well-connected that you can pretty much have the keys to the city during your stay so VIP tickets and restaurant bookings are a breeze.

From the website:

“Brody House is your hip but intimate base, offering you the virtual keys to Budapest. Whether it be art, bars, clubs, music, restaurants, shops or spas, staying at Brody House is your passport to the best that Budapest has to offer.”

Well, I don’t know about you, but that certainly works for me.

Shall we have a look around?

I absolutely adore how much personality is in every room and how the architecture of the old building carries the wonderful proliferation of artwork.  This is definitely on my must-visit list.

The staircase is to die for but my favourite room is the goldy-olive bedroom with the gorgeous tub and amazing floors.  Which is yours?

Take it from me, skip the hostels because room prices start at just €50 per night.  If you’d like more information, visit the website here.
