Lanchid 19 Design Hotel hotels
Named after Budapest's famed Chain Bridge which that spans the Danube, Lánchíd 19 hotel is a contemporary highlight in a neighbourhood of predominantly 19th century architecture.
This contrast denotes the evolving character of Budapest, one which celebrates both past and future. In the evenings the moveable accordion-like glass façade of the design hotel transforms into eye-catching figures setting the tone for an intimate welcome.
Detail definitely reins supreme here: a diver morphing into wavelets on the façade, archaeological remains of a water tower below stairs, overhead glass suspension bridges holding sandblasted fingerprints, uniform made by award-winning Hungarian fashion designers on the hotel staff.
