Purpose built as a hotel back in 1896 - supposedly the 1000th anniversary of Attila the Hun's incursion into the Carpathian basin, the Nemzeti was remodelled as a boutique hotel in 2012. Expect a mix of Art Nouveau and ultra moderne in the décor and you won't be disappointed. This new look is due to the fact that Nemzeti is now part of the 'M Gallery universe', an international chain of boutique hotels - if boutique and chain belong in the same sentence. Whether you like the bright, almost lurid colour scheme will be a matter of personal taste. The hotel does preside over a busy thoroughfare with trams rattling by day and night, but double glazed windows in front absorb the din.
