The only Hungarian member of Design Hotels™ is situated in the center of Budapest, along the banks of the Danube River, a stone’s throw from the Lánchíd (Chain Bridge).
The neighbourhood of our hotel is very rich of cultural sites and attractions. Lánchid utca, starting from Clark Ádám Square literally takes tourists from Chain Bridge to Bridge Elisabeth. The funicular at the end of the street makes it a 2-minute trip to reach the Buda Royal Castle. The view over the city is fascinating from the Castle that is a complete small town within Budapest, the area called old town.
The Royal Palace consists of several so-called wings around the Lion Courtyard. The southern wing of the palace is where the Budapest History Museum (Budapesti Történeti Múzeum) can be found with exhibitions featuring the prehistory of Budapest to modern times. The monumental gate is named after the four lion statues that guard the entrance. Fisherman’s Bastion (name coming from fishermen protecting the area in the old times) is an architectural curiosity, a neo-Gothic and neo- Romanesque style terrace. Matthias Church and The Fountain of the Fishing Children and the mythical Turul (the so called bird of death) are also must see sites within the Bda Castle. The Hungarian Nationa Gallery is also situated in the Castle, it has four wings and displays the most comprehensive collection of Hungarian artwork from the Middle Ages.
Lánchid utca holds the biggest Hungarian Wine Shop, called Bortársaság and two contemporary restaurants, one the being L19 in Lanchid 19 Budapest design hotel. Castle Bazaar, also situated in the street, was completely renovated and reopened in 2014. It was originally designed by the most famous Hungarian architect, Miklós Ybl at around 1880. It was a popular cultural venue of the 1960s and 1970s holding concerts and exhibitions. In the reopened Castl Garden Bazaar there are exhibition spaces, art galleries, wonderful green gardens and escalator to the Royal Palace.
