Lánchíd 19, Budapest's sexy new boutique hotel is now open. The hotel, which is the first Hungarian member of design hotels features the work of Hungarian architects and designers. The hotel's facade, created by Nextlab, is a changing glass artwork which provides pictures at night which shine out over the Danube riverbank. The movement of the glass lamellas are painted with tiny graphics to follow the flow speed of the Danube. During construction the medieval walls and remains of a water-tower were excavated and the archaeological remains are visible from the lobby through glass flooring. Each of the 45 rooms and 3 suites have an individual look and all have views of the Buda Royal Castle. More information on the process of creating the hotel can be found on their blog.
