We spent two nights at Brody House and we cannot rate it highly enough. If you like laid-back charm, quirkiness, an eclectic taste on art and don't mind lots of stairs..... this is the perfect place for you. All the staff were just delightful and so helpful about booking airport taxis, recommending places to eat or helping to pronounce the unpronounceable!
We stayed in the Tinea room and our teenage daughters in the Droga room. The rooms were spotless, charming and quiet and the beds wonderfully comfortable. Breakfast was served in the club rooms in front of a huge window. There was some fab coffee and a wide selection of yoghurts, fresh fruit, croissants, cheese and salami. In the evening, candles and music and an honesty bar set the scene for a relaxing drink or two.
There is heaps to do and see in Budapest. We walked miles. I would recommend a visit to the Holocaust museum; extremely moving and paints a tragically sad side to Budapest's topsy turvey history. An afternoon in the spa baths - the ones beginning with an S and something completely unpronounceable - is an absolute must, although it takes a minute or two to adapt to sitting in warm baths in close proximity to hundreds of complete strangers! But, when in Hungary...!
Eating out was a really positive experience. The food was tasty, with a wide selection, even for vegetarians and the wine was delicious. How nice to be paying £2-£3 for a glass of decent Hungarian wine, rather than being ripped off as in so many European capitals.
In short, we loved Budapest and especially Brody House. What a difference from bland, chain hotels!
