Our first impression walking into the Art’Otel Budapest was how classy and clean the lobby is. The hotel is perfectly located behind the Fisherman’s Bastion, on the left of the Chain Bridge and on the right of the Parliament Building (across the Danube River). No matter in what side your room is facing you will get a great view of any of those iconic landmarks of Budapest. We wrote a full Art’Otel Budapest review.
We were lucky enough to wake up and go to bed with a view of the stunning Hungarian Parliament. It is important to keep in mind that Budapest is divided in two sides: Buda and Pest, divided by the Danube River. Art’Otel is located on the Buda side, which has fewer of the main landmarks, but is honestly the better side of the city.
If you want to go to the Pest side the metro is only two blocks away and a bus stop out front taking you to the heart of Pest landmarks. I love the location of this hotel as it is a couple of blocks away from the Chain Bridge and 20 minutes away from the St Stephan’s cathedral.
We always look to stay at a boutique hotel to get a unique vibe of the cities we visit. Each Art’Otel features the work of a single artist, in this case it is of American artist Donald Sultan. His work is displayed across the hotel in public places and the bedrooms. The concept is to bring an art gallery to each person who stays there.

How are the bedrooms at the Art’Otel?
The bedrooms are comfortable with black and red theme. Each room comes with a mini bar, TV, fast wifi, a cell phone you can use during your stay, and a safe.
The view is amazing, if you are facing the Danube you will see the Hungarian Parliament building, which is lit up at night like a fairytale castle. If your room faces the other side, then you will see the Castle district which also lights up at night.
How is the service and the food?
The service is fantastic and everyone we spoke with was always ready to help. We had so many questions and they were always answered with a big smile. We ate a lot of room service in the evening as we were always tired of walking around the city and the food quality was good and the price even better.
The hotel offers a breakfast buffet with fruits, cereals, pastries, ham, cheeses and other hot options. The price for breakfast 14€ per person but they also offer some rooms that include breakfast.
Art’otel is the perfect stylish and modern hotel for all visitors who want to explore Budapest. The top notch location and helpful staff make for a relaxing stay in Budapest.
