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.
