"The coolest place to stay in the city..." according to Hotel Guru. Choose from our 11 unique and individually designed bedrooms for short term stays. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms, free WiFi access and air conditioning. Each is unique and named after a Brody House artist whose works feature in what were often their former studios.
Built in 1896 for Dr. Vilmos Tauffer, a pioneering medical practitioner, who used it as his city residence, office and practice in the heart of what was the glamorous and exclusive ‘Palace Quarter‘. At the time, the building held one of the country‘s finest and most complete medical libraries and rubbed shoulders with the Hungarian parliament before it was relocated to its current situs. The building survived the ravages of the Second World War, the Hungarian uprising of 1956 (that started at the Hungarian radio station a few doors down Brody Sandor street) and the fifty years of neglect and poor maintenance that followed.Prior to its conversion into a boutique hôtel in 2009, founders William Clothier and Peter Grundberg resided in the property, along with their artist friends, hosting cultural salons and dinner parties. They named the house after Hungarian writer, Sandor Brody, and ‘his’ street at which the house is sited.
the birth of brody house
Brody House remains a work in progress, undergoing various loving restorations since its inception in 2009. Prior to its conversion into a guest house cum boutique hotel, founders William Clothier and Peter Grundberg resided in the property, along with their artist friends, hosting cultural salons and dinner parties. The founders named the house after Hungarian writer Sandor Brody. With a strong dedication to the emerging art scene in Budapest, the hotel’s 11 rooms feature art by each room's eponymous artist who either used to have a studio at Brody House or have since collaborated with the Brody House Group.
