Design Hotel In Budapest | Lánchíd 19 | Budapest | Hungary

Named after Budapest’s famed 'Chain Bridge' that spans the Danube, Lánchíd 19 design hotel is a contemporary highlight in a neighborhood of predominantly 19th century architecture. This contrast denotes the evolving character of Budapest, one which celebrates both past and future. 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. The first design hotel of Hungary provides guests with a unique atmosphere of inventive modernity.

The boutique hotel has a moveable, accordion-like glass façade with tiny painted graphics, chronicling the eco-system of the Danube. It is animated by the changing colors of an innovative lighting design concept, thus providing large pictures (e.g. of a fingerprint, a diver, a bottle or simply wavelets). Glass is one of the dominant materials in the interiors as well, creating a sense of openness and allowing movement to become an integral part of the building’s character.
