This hotel is now run by the "Four Seasons" and is a walk back in time to Art Deco. The Peacock gates, fresh flowers, gorgeous glass ceilings, afternoon tea and a piano tinkling 24/7 (not really, but almost) make this a wonderful in and out stop for the everyday tourist.

Take a trip back in time to when in 1904 this building was built.... remember it was occupied by the communists until 1989.... it has been restored to its elegance over a span of twenty years...

We stayed for 2 nights in a Gresham Room at the top of the hotel. The staff are so polite and helpful in a really discreet and professional manner. We drank at the bar both nights - if you get a Signature cocktail they make it at the table and give you a badge!!!

This hotel is over looking the Danube towards Budapest Castle. Our room was enormous and the beautifully appointed marble bath was just as big.
