Expert review of Art'otel

Sharp and trendy hotel that takes modern art for its theme.

At the core of the Art’otel’s styling are the 600 works of American artist Donald Sultan, who is known for bold paintings that feature contrasting bright and dark colours. The hotel carries this theme into its own design – its décor showcasing vivid reds and fresh whites punctured by dark, shiny blacks – which should give you an idea of whether this is a place for you even if you’ve never heard of Sultan himself.

Location: 

On the Buda river bank, with the Parliament building opposite and the Castle District looming behind. If you want to get the metro across the river to the centre of Pest, it's one stop from nearby Batthyány tér.

Bedrooms: 

The 164 rooms look over either the river or Castle Hill – the former the better option if you get the choice. Each room is hung with original works by the ‘house artist’ Donald Sultan; the rooms have deep red carpets, slate grey armchairs and black bedframes – overall, it’s a palette combination that I like. There’s free WiFi, and the executive rooms and art suites have coffee-making facilities.

Public areas: 

Chic, sleek and uncompromisingly contemporary. The lobby contains sofas gathered around an unusual water feature.

Eating and drinking: 

The sophisticated Chelsea Restaurant – decorated in black and dazzling white – has a good reputation and is certainly worth a try; its menu is influenced by Asian and Mediterranean flavours. You can get a lighter bite at the Domino Café & Bar.

Leisure facilities: 

There’s a fitness centre.

Service: 

The staff are dressed in stylish black. The service is good.
