Located off busy Blaha Lujza tér, the Atrium Fashion Hotel is one of the first design hotels in Pest, the gritty eastern half of Budapest that's home to a surprisingly hip design and fashion scene. The hotel is a popular stop for business travelers on a budget (there's free Wi-Fi) as well as for young couples and partiers in town for rock concerts and raves. Many of the hotel's 57 rooms, which were converted from former apartments and are dressed in unfussy modern decor, are on the small side (expect about 300 square feet). But rates top out at about $200 in high season, including buffet breakfast, and the architecture makes clever use of space: Toiletry shelves were set into the bathroom walls when possible; the layout of each room works with its original footprint. Downstairs, the Atrium Bar and Café has a cool vibe you might expect from a bar in Copenhagen or Amsterdam.—Evan Rail
