THE HOTEL Lánchíd 19 provides a beautiful view of the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Budapest and is situated on the Danube riverbank at the feet of the Buda Royal Castle just a few minutes’ walk from the city center. Named after Budapest's famed “Chain Bridge" spanning the Danube, the hotel is a contemporary highlight in a neighborhood of predominately 19th-century architecture. A beacon of innovation while still paying homage to its historical settings, Lánchíd 19 is a perfect point of departure for discovering the wonders of Budapest.
MADE BY ORIGINALS When art collector and real estate investor Csaba Valkó found a plot of land between Budapest’s Buda Royal Castle and the Pest riverbank along the Danube, he knew that it would become his blank canvas for creating a hotel. With help from designer Edit Rozsos, Valkó set out to orchestrate original experiences for visitors to the Hungarian capital through his contemporary, architecturally forward-thinking Lánchíd 19 hotel.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN In a neighborhood of mostly 19th-century architecture, Lánchíd 19 is a contemporary anomaly: its shapeshifting glass façade moves in an accordion-like way, and is illuminated by an iridescent lighting concept to create a spectacle of shape and color. Glass is abundant inside as well—including a glass atrium and glass bridges that lead to guestrooms—with transparency, connectivity, and openness forming the interior character. Glass floors also allow guests to peer down at the Roman ruins that the hotel is built on, while above-ground, chairs by Alvar Aalto sit side-by-side with custom-designed furnishings and contemporary artworks.
