art'otel Review

Travelers bored with bland, business-hotel decor may get more excited by this mod lodging's snazzy design. Everything—from the multimillion-dollar art collection on the walls to the whimsical red-and-white carpeting and even the cups and saucers—is the work of one man, American artist Donald Sultan. Encompassing one new building and four 18th-century baroque houses on the Buda riverfront, the art'otel adroitly blends old and new. Rooms are on the small side, but some have splendid views of Fisherman's Bastion and the Matthias Church.

    Great, Quiet Location in Buda

    We booked this hotel on Priceline for $50 a night, so it was a super value for that reason; I'm not sure what the rack rate is.

    The decor was cool, arty and modern. The bathroom was small, with no place to put much of anything, but that is my only (very minor) complaint with the room.

    Views are of the Matthias Church on Castle Hill or of the Danube river, both very nice. The hotel is within walking distance to the Batthyany Ter metro station/HEV line, trams, banks, post office, a supermarket, and restaurants.

    Breakfast was not included (not that we expected it for the price) and was about $15.00 per person. The hotel bar had "Happy Time" between 5pm and 7pm. The wi-fi was free--just pick up a voucher from the desk with the access codes.

    The staff was very pleasant and helpful and we look forward to staying here again.
