“Quite simply Brilliant!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Just come back from a 4 day trip - Brody House exceeded all expectations - the team there ere excellent with nothing too much trouble and plenty of tips as to where to go and what to see. There are a range of rooms each offering something different and there are great public spaces in which to relax. It never felt crowded even though it was full!. great location from which to explore the city, centrally located on then Pest side. Hard to find anything that we would change !!! a fabulous place for a break!!

Room Tip: all the rooms are great - if you like compact go for the Shoebox, its quirky & fun.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

I enjoyed my stay at Brody House for four nights this past May. I think it is a very unique hotel and definitely would recommend it to anyone wanting something more unconventional than a typical hotel. The breakfast looked nice, but I never stayed because I felt there were too many (and certainly less expensive) options for delicious baked goods and/or fresh fruit by leaving and exploring Budapest. I had no issue with the lack of an elevator. The stairs are very shallow and there are only two flights. They also offer to carry your bags for you.

Pros:
- The space. It is a beautiful building and all the furnishings are eclectic and tasteful. It feels very contemporary. It is spacious, airy, and comfortable.
- The room. Again, spacious and comfortable. Well stocked with towels, toiletries, hair dryer.
- The service. The girls at the front speak excellent English and are very warm and friendly. They are a big reason as to why I would recommend the hotel.
- Location. Easy walking distance to absolutely everything – even the Castle District, etc – and also very close to the Metro.
- The extras. The honour bar, the free tea, water, the communal spaces to hang out in. All much more welcoming than a typical hotel.

Cons:
- Noise can be an issue. If other guests don’t recognize that you can hear everything in the corridors, you can be rudely awakened.
- The lack of night staff. I never felt unsafe with no one there, but if something were ever to go wrong, having someone actually there as opposed to a phone call away offers greater peace of mind.
- Inconsistencies. Nothing major went wrong, but there were some issues with air conditioning and missed room clean/towel change. I was awoken by housekeeping one morning and said I wasn’t yet up. They never came back. It wasn’t worth mentioning at 730 pm because reception closes at 8 and I was leaving the next day. But in a hotel so small, how do you not come back?

One of the most exciting places I have ever stayed in-

Great location, delicious breakfast, amazing building, friendly helpful staff... And an 'honesty bar'- i.e.. you take what you want and write it down in a notepad to be charged later!

The lounge is flooded with natural light from the large windows, and you could stay there all day having tea or coffee…or in the magical internal courtyard with ivy hanging down the sides...

Extraordinary, individually designed rooms- stayed in the 'Printa', a huge suite with a bedroom and sitting room and kitchenette divided by a long corridor- beautifully furnished, simple and tasteful fittings.

Can't wait to go back to Budapest and stay there- it's a very special place!

Room Tip: All rooms are special!

This was a break for my partner's 60th birthday - a pressy from his elder daughter so can't comment on value for money! What an amazing place, quirky and definitely for art and craft lovers - everywhere is packed with interesting items. Very well situated within walking distance of all the major attractions and brilliantly helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was really good. Our bedroom - Alex Tinei - well what a luxury to have a bath in the bedroom - a gold bath on claw feet, what an experience.

Room Tip: Alex Tinei if you want to have a gold bath in your room!!!

I stayed here with family recently and what a lovely quirky place to stay. Very safe and secure and good location. Staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Wanted to do a cruise on river and one staff member helped me book and was a great experience, would definately recommend. We stayed in the bullet room. Lovely large bath to soak in after a day walking. Want to go back. Thanks brody house.

From our first contact by email to our last farewell this was an incredible experience.
It was so good to be greeted every morning by smiles throughout the hotel from staff who obviously enjoyed their work.
From reception to whoever cooked the best ever Eggs Benedict, the service was the best.
And as for the bedroom and sitting rooms etc there is only one word, wow.
A definite 5 star from our first ever review and we will be back!

As an artist, art lover, and travel enthusiast, I truly appreciate Brody House. The design of the hotel combined with the art work displayed throughout creates a beautiful haven within Budapest. I stayed at the hotel with my sister and we had a fabulous stay. The staff was friendly, the eggs benedict was delicious, and the overall impression was beyond satisfactory. I hope to return soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Printa suite. It was incredibly spacious.
