About the house

"the coolest place to stay in the city..."

according to Hotel Guru...
Brody House operates as a quirky boutique hotel with 11 unique and individually designed bedrooms within a neo-classical heritage building in Budapest’s palace quarter.

Passion for design

Each room is unique and named after an eponymous Brody House artist whose works feature in what were often their former studios and features vintage up-cycled furniture, paint stripped walls and contemporary art. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms, some even have a free-standing bath in the room for those decadent champagne moments as well as more mundane but practical features such as free WiFi access and air conditioning.

the building's history and heritage

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.
