The 7 Best Hotels in Budapest

4th January 2007 // By Zahra Al-Kateb


The Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace is one of the most luxurious places to stay in Budapest and it is just a ten-minute walk from the shops in Váci ucta.

Each of its 179 rooms offer views of intimate courtyards, the Old City or the Danube River and are stylishly decorated to reflect the Art Nouveau architecture of the original building. Dining out in the hotel’s restaurant is pure pleasure as Mediterranean cuisine is combined exquisitely with more traditional Hungarian favorites. If you need to relax look no further than the spa where rejuvenating treatments are offered as well as a wet treatment suite and whirlpool.




Why we love it: With original Art Nouveau treasures, this gloriously appointed suite offers lavish surroundings for high-level executives or VIP guests. Filled with original Art Nouveau pieces, it is located on the hotel’s second floor, with a large furnished balcony and panoramic views of the Danube, Royal Buda Castle and Chain Bridge. The Royal Suite features a king master bedroom, with the option to add one or two additional bedrooms, and includes a pantry with direct corridor access for a residential-style dining service. A marble bathroom opens from the bedroom offering a luxuriously deep tub, separate shower and a large vanity. There is also a powder room that is accessible from the living room.
