Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Budapest is a year-round destination. The Christmas markets are particularly fun and great for getting into the festive spirit. The city looks particularly beautiful in Spring, especially around April when the magnolia trees come into blossom. Some of the best weather for sight-seeing can be had in autumn, when days are generally mild and clear.

Description

Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest is centrally located at one end of the renowned Chain Bridge, with panoramic vistas of the Danube and the hills of Buda. This unique art nouveau palace is one of the city's most important landmarks.

Four Seasons Gresham Palace is located at the eastern end of the famous Chain Bridge, close to the shops and restaurants of Pest but directly opposite the Castle District. One of Budapest's finest luxury hotels, it is housed in one of the city's most iconic buildings, an art nouveau masterpiece replete with statues, columns, arches and mosaics.

The hotel occupies a building originally commissioned by the London-based Gresham Life Assurance Company, as an office and residence for their senior staff. During the occupation after World War Two, it was used by the Red Army as a barracks, and subsequently as an apartment building. A multi-million dollar reconstruction in the noughties restored original details such as the staircases, mosaics, stained class and ironwork, returning the building to its former glory and combining period touches with contemporary comfort before its reopening as the city's best hotel.

Today you can expect informal but attentive service, fine dining, and well-appointed, good sized rooms, making it a perfect base for exploring the sights of this fascinating city.

Facilities

Four Seasons have recently replaced their formal, fine-dining restaurant with the more relaxed Kollázs Brasserie and Bar, which appeals to the Budapest public as well as guests at the hotel. Kollázs means ‘collage’ in Hungarian and reflects the theme of combining Hungarian and international cuisine.
