Welcome to Funky Friday, a new segment we’re trying out which features one photo that we think singularly expresses a hotel’s inner psyche. We look for, and often find, a lot of wacky, wild and wondrous designs that seem to have one thing in common: a Type A personality. So why not have a bit of fun as we all wrap up our week by taking a quick look at some hotels that quite frankly, want our attention.

For all you hip and fashionable vampire lovers, and you know who you are, eagerly counting down the hours until the "True Blood" premiere on June 22nd, we think we may have found a design hotel — or at least a suite — just for you. The Soho Boutique Hotel in Budapest is an artsy modern boutique that invites us to give in to “enchanting temptation” and an “unforgettable experience.“ That sounds like a great selling point for their new “Vampire Suites,” not that we’re experts on the subject.

The Soho Boutique Hotel lies in the heart, so to speak, of historic Budapest. From the outside, and even throughout the modern and unadorned public areas, you might not know these special suites existed. There are two suites, named after “Krolock” and “Herbert,” characters from a popular local musical, Vampirok Balja (Dance of the Vampires.) This vampire tale is based on a 1967 film by Roman Polanski, The Fearless Vampire Killers, that featured both himself and Sharon Tate.

The suites were created by PS Production, the show’s production company, and Kare Budapest, an interiors furnishings supplier. We think the Krolock Suite is an especially fitting design, given the subject matter. It is dark and "retro gothic" in atmosphere (a tinge creepy,) with a twist of glamour. It sure looks like a worthy setting for even the most exclusive of "interviews," and if not that, then a place for Sookie, Bill and Eric fans to commiserate about "True Blood's" final season.

[Vampire Package €219, includes one night in Vampire Suite, 2 tickets to the musical, breakfast, and welcome "vampire juice" or "vampire kiss" cocktail ]
