Eclectic artist-designed apartments close to the basilica with access to a members bar and a hip gallery
Part of the hip Brody House Group, this collection of seven apartments offers an eclectic base from which to explore downtown Budapest. The stellar location in Pest puts you a block from the tree-lined boulevard Andrassy Avenue and a short walk from the stunning basilica. In keeping with the philosophy of the brand (which includes a gallery, studios, a members club and a boutique hotel), the apartments have been individually designed by different artists, and the shabby-chic style encompasses salvaged furniture and contemporary artwork. Each overlooks a quiet courtyard and features free WiFi, a living and sleeping area (some are open-plan; some are separate rooms) and a kitchen with a dishwasher, a microwave and a fridge. All guests have access to the sister hotel, Brody House, for breakfast and evening drinks from the honesty bar, as well as the members-only Brody Studios for quirky art events and the Brody ArtYard for contemporary exhibitions.
In the Area
The nearby Seventh District is ruin bar central (it's full of derelict buildings that have been turned into hip drinking dens). Wander the narrow streets, such as Kazinczy and Dob, and you’ll find many of these quirky bars where the beer flows and the secondhand furniture is mismatched. Szimpla is as good a place as any to start. If you haven’t been invited for a meal in a Hungarian home, the next best thing is eating at an étkezde, a type of simple lunchroom that serves traditional home-style food. A good one to try is Róma Ételbár in Buda (Csalogány Utca 23-24) (from $5). The nearby “Palace Quarter” is a fun neighborhood that is slowly attracting more bars, cafés and art galleries. Allow some time to explore Krúdy Gyula Utca, the center of the neighborhood, and the surrounding streets. If it’s too hot to visit one of the thermal spas, do what the locals do and spend the day at the pool. Margaret Island has two: the Hájos Alfréd (better for serious lap swimmers) and the Palatinus (which has many children’s pools, a wave pool and a thermal pool).
