Rooms & Suites: 179
Priceless ceramics by Victor Zsolnay. Glorious stained glass by Miksa Roth. Is this a palace? A museum? Or a hotel? At Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest, you'll discover the best of this magnificent city even before you step out of the sumptuous haven of Art Nouveau.
Begin your day with an invigorating Gresham Bath – rich in Bük minerals and scented with aromatherapy oils. Savour castle views over breakfast in the coffeehouse, Gresham Kávéház. And when you're ready to set forth, a picnic lunch is the perfect accompaniment for the outdoor ballet on Margit Island or the museums and galleries of the Castle District. Sitting majestically beside the Danube River, Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest is more than a place to stay, it's a landmark you'll fall in love with. Situated in Pest's fashionable District V, overlooking the Danube and the Chain Bridge, the city's most elegant link across the river to Buda. The hotel, which was built in 1906 as offices, apartments and a shopping arcade, went through a €90-million restoration. 179 spacious guest rooms and suites infused with the spirit of Art Nouveau; many with balconies and vaulted ceilings. Ambience of soaring winter gardens, grand staircases, stained glass, mosaics and ironwork. Of the 179 guest rooms, our favorite is the Royal Suite, complete with a balcony and quintessential Budapest view. Just off the lobby, the restored Gresham Kávéház café serves foie gras and Hungarian pastries, while the alabaster and black marble bar has already become one of the city's chicest watering holes. Gresham Palace's Mediterranean restaurant, Páva, which is managed by executive chef Abdessattar Zitouni, who defected from Four Seasons Hotel Caracas, is also proving a hit. This spectacular Four Seasons is attracting the city's beau monde, as well as global business and leisure travelers.
