Loved everything about this place. Warm welcome and very helpful staff. Rooms well decorated and spacious. The communal areas are excellent. The fires are a real selling point and lovely to sit by on a cold night. The honesty bar is well stocked too.


However, if you're looking for tv, air conditioning and room service this isn't the place for you. If you want laid back and friendly this is a must.

Can't wait to return!

Stayed here with friends in November 2013 and was one of my favourite hotel experiences ever.
Incredible hotel - beautiful decor and furniture, relaxed and laidback vibe. Gorgeous rooms. Wonderful staff. Delicious breakfast. Great service. Incredible value for money. Loved the communal lounges with fireplaces and honesty bar. Heaven.

We spent 8 days and nights at Brody House staying in Printa and I'm not surprised that it does so well in reviews. It is very comfortable, easy-going and genial. The house is on a leafy, quiet road opposite the National Museum. Entrance by key pad opens onto a huge hallway and staircase leading up to Reception. There is a courtyard as well which has its own charm.
Printa overlooks the Museum with its London planes and oaks. The road is quiet so noise was never a problem. Printa is very large and airy and consists of a kitchenette, sitting room, corridor, bathroom and bedroom. It is very comfortable and interesting as well as arty. The temperature of the bedroom was a little warm for us but got turned down by Reception when I asked (computer controlled!),The bed was the largest and most comfortable I have ever slept in, the pillows and linen were very good as was the bathroom and the shower was excellent. The kitchenette is OK (with a kettle, one saucepan and one frying pan) but didn't get used as such. The lights are a bit gloomy in January and we asked for a reading light in the sitting room which promptly appeared. The bathroom could use an additional mirror and brighter light to apply make-up or use to shave. These are very minor quibbles from a pedant!The staff are especially welcoming, friendly, helpful and interested. The food is good, especially eggs Benedict and breakfast is plentiful and with plenty of choice. They provide large cups and glasses throughout that allows for generous helpings of tea and orange juice. Breakfast is accompanied by 'lounge' music though two glorious bespoke speakers but ask at Reception and they will change the music if you want them to. We had Mozart one morning and The National on another. There is a bar and tables chairs, sofas and art work all overlooking the museum and its trees so it adds to that bohemian feel. We thought the place was very good indeed and far better than a stuffy and formal hotel.
When we visit amazing Budapest again we will always look to stay at Brody House as first choice.

We stayed at Brody House for five nights over Christmas and loved it. Private, good location with easy transport links -- and also perfect for walking everywhere. Szilvia was incredible, recommending and booking restaurants and even printing off opera tickets. The Agi room was gorgeous, with a super comfortable bed. Nice to be off the beaten path slightly in Pest.

Room Tip: Agi has windows directly into the courtyard and felt very private.

I stayed in Brody house for four nights, 2 in Bullet room, 2 in Tepper room (no room available for 4 consecutive nights).
The experience couldn't have been more different. Bullet was truly wonderful. Fantastic design details, stylish, comfortable, nice bath... LOVED it.
Tepper on the other hand left a bit to be desired. Situated on the same floor as the reception (as opposed to Bullet being a floor below) it felt like a different hotel. The room was large, with some nice bits of furniture, but overall a pretty dull, cold room that needs complete redecoration. A piece of artwork on the wall isn't enough to make the room stylish, especially compared to the wonderful rooms a floor below. The bathroom was cold, and in bad need of renovation too. Old badly functioning tap, nasty cabinets with two types of cheap door handles (not through stylish choice, but showing the cabinets had been built in two stages). The slightly nasty comment is a reflection on the contrast between the two types of rooms.
Apart from the rooms, great friendly service, fantastic building, and great location. And the reception area is fab too. Only, please, bring the top floors rooms to the same standard.

I visited Budapest beginning of January and there are a number of good reasons to choose Brody House again for my next stay.
First of all it's a gorgeous building with high spaceful and tastefully furnished rooms. In addition there are several great living rooms with sofas, easy chairs, books, bar where you feel very comportable.
Brody House is also perfectly located: You can walk to lots of places (i.e. the Hungarian National Museum, Urania Film Palace or Puskin Cinema are next door),and there are trams, buses and metro very nearby which take you to all places in Buda and Pest.
And last but noch least: The Brody House staff is wonderful, very charming and helpful.
