Lánchíd 19 - A multi-award winning design hotel
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. The city hotel is in the center of Budapest, beneath the well-known Royal Palace. 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 4-star boutique hotel in Budapest offers 45 differently designed rooms following the concept made up by young Hungarian creative talents and 3 panorama suites of wonderful Danube view.
The city hotel can hold smaller conferences or business meetings in its 3 meeting rooms. A contemporary, international restaurant and a bar is also at the guest's disposal with wide drink assortment and seasonal dishes.
Today, the term ’design hotel’ is used to describe just about any property that strays from the familiar, chain-hotel aesthetic. But there’s more to a true design hotel than minimalism or fly-by-night visual trends. This is a new term in the hotel sector. Claus Sendlinger, founder of DH who foresaw this development 19 years ago. He predicted insightfully that a) “design will become an integral part of hotels” and b) “design-driven hotels will become a lifestyle choice for today’s and tomorrow’s travellers.” This was the seed from which Design Hotels™ emerged.
Design Hotels™ began as a marketing company for contemporary hotels and started with a modest portfolio of only 10 iconic members. The company strategically tapped into new markets and hand-picked its collection of 200 one-of-a-kind hotels. Every hotel provides a unique experience and reflects the vision of an independent hotelier with a passion for genuine hospitality that is culturally rooted and enhanced by thought-provoking design and architecture.
Today Design Hotels™ has blossomed into a global lifestyle brand that is synonymous with distinctive architecture and interior design balanced with functionality and exceptional service.
