Founded in 2009 in what was previously an artists’ residence, Brody House is a bohemian boutique hotel that was named after Hungarian author Sándor Bródy. Each of the 11 air-conditioned rooms here features an eclectic mix of upcycled furniture—think sofas with frames made from old shipping pallets or accent walls made from old wooden doors—and some have claw-foot tubs. Brody House is part of a larger effort that includes a condo hotel (Brody Apartments), a grand suburban villa (Brody Villa), and an art gallery (The Art Yard). However, the group's best-known project is, without a doubt, Brody Studios, a private members club for the local arts communities featuring bars, workshop space, and even a recording studio. All guests staying at Brody properties get free access to Brody Studios and its regular calendar of dance parties and literature- and art-related events as well as the occasional English-language comedy show.

My Favourite Hotel: Boutique Brody House
This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Each bedroom is named after an artist who had designed the room. Most of the 8 rooms overlook a courtyard; the building is covered in ivy. My room, the Tinei, has a freestanding golden bathtub for a decadent soak. I loved the little touches from the personalized artwork to the mini-cokes in a bottle in a vintage wooden box on my table. As you can see, this boutique hotel/guest house is geared towards creatives. The living room area is used for meals, lounging or work. It was the perfect place to work during the day. This is curated with unique items like art books or a pillow with a union jack. Membership includes members events, venues, special rates and affiliated clubs. You'll also receive a curated list of what do in Budapest from the locals that live there. There are also apartments and residences for longer stays. This guest house is incredible value.
