There is no doubt about it: Budapest is becoming a Mecca for beer lovers. With a whole district full of cool bars dedicated to craft beer and with a great Budapest Craft Beer Tour, you can now plan your entire trip around beer tasting. However, if you want to make sure that your entire stay in Budapest is all around beers, then you’ll have to check in to Hopstel, Budapest’s first beer hotel.
The hotel is at the best location possible as it is actually in the building of Élesztő, one of the must-visit craft beer bars in Budapest. Currently, Hopstel offers three double rooms, Galena, Amarillo and Chinook named after different hops, and all rooms share one bathroom. There is also a common area, where you can easily meet other travelers. The hotel is very nicely designed with an industrial touch and with references to Budapest’s craft beer scene, such as a map of District9 printed on the wall of the common area.
You’ll be welcomed by Gábor, the owner, who will give you tips on places to visit in the neighborhood and will answer any of your questions about the city. Although Hopstel is located at Élesztő where you’ll have the chance to try some of the best Hungarian craft beers, we definitely recommend that you visit the other bars in District9. And if you want explore the neighborhood with other like-minded beer lovers, then make sure you sign up for a Budapest Craft Beer Tour. Check availability & prices.
