Bisztro

Where to eat: Matrjoska Bisztro

The city's once edgy Eighth District is now home to an array of charming hotels, bars and restaurants.

With its exposed white brick walls, enchanting woodland décor ‒ owl illustrations and transporting tree branches ‒ and noteworthy vodka menu, it'a lovely little place to while away an afternoon or evening.

Sitting pretty on a picturesque square on the Pest side of the town, you will find this bohemian boutique hotel ‒ one of the city's most stylish. The building, which dates all the way back to the 1850s, is an eclectic mix of faded grandeur and contemporary design. Each of the individually designed rooms (named after the artist whose work hangs on the wall) is as impressive as the next: think original parquet floors, high ceilings and golden bathtubs.

Even on the coldest of winter days, you will find the locals basking in the warm, steamy waters (which temperatures range from 27 to 38°C). When in Budapest and all that...
