The hotel is located in an 18th century building that used to be a series of apartment flats. It was turned into a hotel in 2001 and was formerly called the Hotel Pest. But a new owner has renovated the hotel and it's 25 rooms are now ultra modern, but still maintain the contemporary elegance of the building's original heritage.
The exterior facade of the Casati Budapest Hotel.
The hotel underwent a three month renovation, and only re-opened on June 15, 2012. There are now four styles of rooms, with local artwork matching the style of the room...Cool, Classic, Natural, and Heaven!
The entrance to our room. We were in number 41.
Our room was one of the "Cool" rooms!
Modern bathroom with all the amenities.
I have to say one thing. This bathroom has the best shower ever! Loads of hot water, easy to adjust the temperature, and one of those shower heads that makes you feel like you're standing under a waterfall! Absolutely heaven taking a shower here!
A full buffet breakfast is included with your stay at the Casati Budapest Hotel.
A great start to the day on a full stomach!
There is an exercise room and wellness center in the basement. This is a great idea, because the workout room is naturally cooler and that makes for a better environment for your workout. But then, there's also a massage room where they will arrange a masseuse to come in and relax your muscles if you wish, and a sauna room as well.

The exercise room is well equipped.
We absolutely loved the decor in the bar!
One of the hotel's Natural Rooms.
The interior rooms look out onto a beautiful courtyard.
They even have a single room designed in the Heaven motif, for the solo traveler.
And, one of the Classic rooms.
The hotel has an excellent location, within walking distance to everything in the central area and only minutes from the nearest Metro station as well. The hotel is quickly becoming a popular destination and it might be worthwhile to book in advance. There were three empty rooms the other night, but apparently they were sold out before we went to bed! They are currently renting for around €98 ($122.50) per night, but you can check reservation status and current pricing here...
