Originally built as a palace almost 200 years ago, this building has had an interesting life. It has been an office building, was occupied by the Soviet Military during WWII, been an apartment building then restored to it's original grandeur to operate as the five star Four Seasons Hotel. Wander into the lobby area and check out the floors, walls,... More

Gresham palace is one of the many beautiful buildings in an ecclectic Secessions style (Art nouveau). The entrance faces the Chainbridge on the Pest side of Budapest. At the entrance beautiful ironwork peacocks can be seen, and the hallway features glazed blue tiles and glass ceilings. The reception of the hotel is at the end of the hallway, and the... More

It is difficult to miss this magnificent building because of its very central location. Although we did not stay at the hotel, we went inside on one occasion. The hotel ushers opened the doors for us and greeted us very warmly. We just walked around the lobby and took pictures of the wonderful ceiling, tiled walls, and the iron work.... More

Budapest is somewhere that we have wanted to visit for a long time and having now done so, our experience was made even better by choosing to stay at the Gresham Palace. I honestly can't think of a hotel I've stayed in where the staff were so universally helpful and courteous. We arrived very late and I made a passing... More

The Four Seasons lets you enjoy the building even if you are not staying there. Go for a drink and some appetizers in the lounge area of the lobby, and you will be glad you did!

I was in Budapest on my birthday and decided to celebrate with afternoon tea at Gresham Palace, now run by Four Seasons. I booked my table which was right next to the pianist and his grand piano. The table was set with beautiful antique china and the waitress offered the history of this. You can choose from numerous teas and... More

Had Sunday brunch at the Gresham and it was very good. Not a huge selection but what was there was excellent. Service is iffy - we had to track down our waiter a few times (unusual for a Four Seasons). Worth a visit and close to the Danube River.

We enjoyed our 4 day stay, superb beds and the room was beautifully finished and very comfortable as you would expect from a 4 Seasons hotel. The Eggs Benedict with truffles breakfast with a freshly squeezed orange juice and capuchin was superb, we did,'t eat any other mess in the hotel. The entrance and reception area is stunning and the... More
