“Wow fabulous”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.

I liked Brody House, but it is a bit frustrating - like an inch you can't scratch. They do some things very well and then drop the ball in other areas.

The good stuff:
a. Staff are so helpful + friendly
b. Great art and cool/funky design
c. Good location
d. Nice bed, good sleep (unless woken by noisy neighbors)
e. Great "club room" for lounging around and relaxing

But there are a lot of oversights/gaps:
a. There is no elevator so you have to climb up two very high floors (more like 4 normal floors) every time to enter the hotel.
b. Other guests can be very noisy - I got woken @ 06:10 by people discussing their night time endeavors in the corridor
c. There is no shaving mirror, tea/coffee making/fridge or TV (that’s right, no TV or other in room entertainment)
d. The toiletries are lame for a "designer" hotel/guesthouse
e. The water was tepid at best for my shower one morning - unbearable!
f. You only get two complimentary bottles of water per stay regardless of the number of nights
g. Housekeeping don't change your towels - it seems you must keep them for the duration of your stay!

So, I would stay at the Brody House again if I was visiting Budapest alone but I don't think it is the sort of place you could take a partner.

Dear Bert - Apologies for the slow reply. Your review slipped through the net! We appreciate the positive comments and take note of the perceived oversights and comments as follows: a. No elevator: We are in an historic/heritage building for which the stairs are a key architectural feature dating from the time the house was built (1896). The stairs are at all steep - after all, they were intended to be manageable for elegant ladies with long dresses!
b. noisy guests - sorry to hear that you had night owls as neighbours; no normally an issue we have to deal with. Did you ask them to be quiet?!
c. no shaving mirror, tea/coffee making/fridge or TV - we have deliberately elected not to have TVs in each room. Budapest is a super city and we hope people will explore it. Besides, most of our guests did into our books, honest bar or, if they need digital entertainment, use their own electronic kit (tablets, laptops etc) for which wide-ranging WIFI seems to be more important.
d. 'lame' toiletries - sorry to hear you did not like the products; we chose them because they are local, not tested on animals and fit the values with which we wish to operate. e. Tepid water - did you raise it with reception? some guests have mentioned the opposite that the water is very hot!
f. You only get two complimentary bottles of water per stay regardless of the number of nights - we have an honesty bar operating 24/7 from which you can access water anytime. Often people don't drink the water in the room so we think it makes most sense to centralise this resource. Again, in the interest of being sparing.
g. Towel change - did you ask for new towels?? We typically change every 2-3 days (on ecological grounds) and this seems to be fine for most people. We always supply an extra towel free of charge if a guest asks for it.

We hope to see you, if you are in Budapest again!

Best wishes,
The Brody Team

Lovely room, we were lucky in having a kitchen as well. Relaxing lounge/bar and courtyard for us to use, including a well-priced honesty bar and free tea. Very helpful staff who spoke excellent English. Good location. Good price. Would definitely return.

We first read about Brody House in the Telegraph article in Autumn 2012, and finally visited last week, and were not disappointed. The room was a good size(Droga), with an excellent shower (One slight gripe, no easy chairs in the room, plenty of space). The two girls who worked reception during our stay, could not have been more helpful, Klaudia and Sylvi.Given the layout at Brody House, you have to be fit, as many stairs are involved!
Budapest was a wonderful revelation, so much to see and not too many tourists. The thermal baths are a must, and we were so lucky to catch a huge Lautrec exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts. Hopefully the PR Team who ruined Prague don't get hold of Budapest, please leave it as a sleepy backwater.
We'll definitely be back !!

Room Tip: Droga was very good
