Anyone looking to find a hip and modern hotel will fall in love with the Alta Moda Fashion Hotel.

Don't be intimidated by the name, although fashionable in every sense, it is surprisingly affordable. I sometimes shy away from hotels that have the description of what the hotel should be, like "Quality Inn"  because I usually don't find them having much of any thing I consider to be quality. I was first drawn to the hotel after searching for what seemed like days to find the perfect place at the perfect price. I attempted to book too-good-to-be-true prices for the four star Corinthia Budapest Hotel, but when I neared the end of my transaction, somehow there were several hundred dollars in extra hidden fees. So I was back to square one. My boyfriend Joe and I each got on our laptops to scour the internet looking for something comparable but, of course, more affordable. We finally came across what I believe to be the perfect choice, the Alta Moda Fashion Hotel. Located on the Pest side of Budapest, it's within walking distance of pretty much anything you would really care to see in town.

Main LobbyConstructed in early 2010, it has all the modern conveniences and amenities a young professional could want. Rooms are spacious and include your own espresso maker, free wireless internet and complimentary bath robes with slippers for each guest. The hotel bar is fully stocked and offers reasonable prices on most drinks. My favorite feature of the hotel was the wellness zone in the sub level complete with a large jacuzzi, steam bath, sauna and infrared sauna.

The location is just around the block from scenic Saint Stephens Basilica and only about a five minute walk to Vorosmarty Square or (ter) and the Chain Bridge. Breakfast is provided but it's expensive, there are plenty of cafes near by to get a good meal instead. For room rates and info go to www.altamodahotelbudapest.com
