Some lower-category rooms have a view onto an interior courtyard
This 179-room luxury hotel, housed in a grand, historic landmark Art Nouveau building, is easily one of the top options in not just Pest's Inner City but Budapest as a whole, along with the nearby Aria Hotel. Its rooms are sophisticated and understated, and some have great views of the Danube and Buda Castle -- though others face an interior courtyard. Features include a chic indoor pool, a luxury spa with a sauna and steam rooms, a modern fitness center, and 24-hour business center. It's tough to top, but those who prefer a more intimate, boutique-like experience might be happier at the Aria.
A grand Art
Nouveau building with chic interior design and superb views of the Danube
This beautiful Art Nouveau building with an impressive stone facade has an interesting history. It was originally built as
the office of a British life insurance company in 1906, and later served as communist-era housing, before opening as a hotel in 2004 after a two-year restoration. Inside, elegant touches are everywhere, from the floral arrangements in the lobby, to the mosaic tile floor underneath the glass cupola over the so-called "Peacock Passage." Pieces by 20th-century Hungarian artists are on display throughout. The overall ambience is opulent and luxurious, and the property attracts well-to-do couples and families as well as business travelers with generous expense budgets.
Directly in front of the Chain Bridge, with views of the Danube and Buda Castle
The hotel is in a great location for reaching
the key tourist hot spots on both sides of the Danube, including Pest sights such as St. Stephen’s
Basilica (a seven-minute walk away), Parliament (10 minutes north on foot), and the State Opera House (a 15-minute walk away). Buda and the Castle District is just across the famous Chain Bridge from the hotel. It’s also very close to high-end shopping on bustling
Vaci Utca (10 minutes away) and the charming -- though touristy -- Vorosmarty Square, a seven-minute walk from the hotel. There are numerous metro and tram stops within a five-minute walk from the hotel and the airport is a 25-minute drive away.
