Definitely an interesting place to stay. Some really great art and classic faded architecture at Brody House. I stayed in the Gaspar room, which was perfect for my short stay and very good value for that matter. It is a great location for finding out more about Budapest. The staff were really lovely and very helpful. It was clear they were willing to really go out of their way to accomodate guests and their interests and requirements. It was great to sit just outside the studio in the courtyard drinking coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. The bed was great. Only a couple of points that might improve the experience, it would have been good to have even a small table at normal height. The only table was very high and could only be used either standing or sitting on quite high and not particularly comfortable stools. Also, I couldn't get the tv to do anything but play videos. The club premises on the 2nd floor was great and very relaxing. The breakfast was also tasty and in the club premises on the 2nd floor.

Artsy, fun, historic property and very helpful/friendly staff. We stayed in June for a portion of our honeymoon. Good location on a very quiet side street. We loved the common areas, lots of places to hang out and enjoy the company of other like minded travelers. Art everywhere! Highly recommended. Our only (small) complaint is that you have to pay extra for breakfast. They should include the basic breakfast in the price of the rooms, and if you want to order something extra off the menu then charge for that. But overall, fantastic place.

Room Tip: We stayed in Agi, great room!

We stayed at the Brody House for four nights in mid September 2013 and had a wonderful experience. However, the front of the building is very deceptive with no signage other than a small plaque by the buzzer. Once you get passed the entrance you will be amazed by the character, charm and old world beauty this place offers. The main stairwell is glorious in its decayed elegance! The courtyard is just charming! After you walk up about three flights of stairs to get to the reception area, you will be pleasantly shocked as I was by the very lovely and funky reception, breakfast area. lounge rooms and bar. We stayed in the Bullet Room which was quite was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable! Our friend that travelled with us stayed in the Tinei and Claret Rooms which were both lovely and unique from one another. If you are challenged by stairs than this is not the place for you but Szilvi and all the other staff will do everything in their power to accommodate you including running up and down staircases with heavy suitcases....no problem!! The location is fabulous and very close to the market and many wonderful restaurants and night spots. We loved our time in Budapest and the Brody House was a perfect place to stay. We honestly would not stay anywhere else in Budapest and cannot say enough about this little hidden treasure.

Two couples stayed at Brody house for four nights before we embarked on a river cruise. This place is just fabulous although when you enter you might not be so sure. You come in to an unmarked entrance and are staring at a large empty foyer with a huge marble stairway. Reception is on the second floor which is three flights up. Szilvi was there to greet us and get us to our rooms which were across the courtyard and up another flight of stairs. Szilvi is a tiny thing who grabbed our bags and ran them right up the stairs! We had the Tinai room for two nights and then had to change to the Claret because of a computer crash that lost their reservation info. However. They moved our luggage while we were out that day.

I cannot say enough about this place. It is charming in a shabby chic way without trying to be shabby chic. The hospitality and service is the best you will ever find. The only downside is the number of staircases to be negotiated between the rooms and the reception, common spaces.

I wouldn't dream of going to Budapest and staying anywhere else!

We stayed at Brody House in early October 2013 and can only describe it as excellent. I had 'e' mail contact with the hotel staff prior to arrival and all my messages were answered promptly and thoroughly. We stayed in Gaspar Room, which could really be described as an apartment. Our welcome (Szilvi) was most welcoming, we were shown to our room immediately, all its facilities were explained and advice offered re visiting the city. The 'room' has lounge, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom on one level whilst the double bedroom is upstairs. All rooms are of a generous size and well equipped with the usual hotel offerings. The rooms were spotlessly clean and maintained that way throughout our stay by the daily visits from cleaning staff. The room is not air conditioned (not needed in October) but the central heating was efficient and controlled by a wall thermostat in the lounge. We had breakfast in the hotel on one day, which was a buffet style continental breakfast. The choice was excellent and well on a par with breakfasts provided at 4 and 5* hotels I have stayed in. The staff working in the breakfast room were friendly and helpful explaining what was available and were very attentive. I would agree with other reviewers that this is a hotel with a difference and I mean that in a positive way, the atmosphere created by the staff is one more akin to a private club and not in any intrusive way. The location is fine for visiting most of the sights in Buda, obviously the Pest side is across the river so a little further away but still not a problem and easily within walking distance. The staff in the hotel, and in particular Szilvi and Vivien, were just amazingly helpful and friendly, by far the best hotel staff I have encountered after visiting many countries. If I ever have the opportunity to visit Budapest again I will look no further than Brody House for my accommodation. Fantastic.

Room Tip: Gaspar is on the ground floor along with a couple of other rooms. Some of the others are on the 2nd...

We stayed at Brody House from the 21st - 23rd and had the most memorable stay. I had booked the Printa Suite and it was better than any of the website images could portray.

We were able to check in early and Vivien from the Reception kindly showed us around to explain everything thoroughly. Very personalised service - as other reviews have expressed, you feel like you are staying with very cool friends.

Cannot fault breakfast or indeed the very cool 'honesty bar' principle (you can serve yourself drinks from the bar and note down what you consumed) - we made use of it every day, having a relaxed drink upstairs after sight seeing and trip around Budapest.

Prices are absolutely decent and Szilvi was kind enough to only charge us for 2 coffees rather than 2 breakfasts as we didnt have much to eat on the morning of our departure.

The building itself is fantastic and those who enjoy art and like to stay somewhere with a difference - this is the place to come to.

We did not unfortunately see the Brody Studios but that is just another reason to return. Szilvi and Vivien were both fantastic with assisting to make my boyfriends Birthday special, arranging a cake and helping with bookings for dinners.

FANTASTIC STAY and I will be back for sure!

Room Tip: if you want to go somewhere for amazing food and great atmosphere, the MAK Bistro is a 10 minute wal...
