Faultless service, friendly efficient waiters,delicious range of dishes, hot and cold. Good atmosphere, stunning building, good for families - kids were looked after as well as adults. Couldn't fault it. You could eat as much - or as little - as you liked. Good value.

Nice hotel. The doorman is very pleasant and you can walk into the lobby to have a peep inside as well. Ofcourse you can have a cuppa coffee as well.

One of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen. Although it is quite costly, in excess of $600 Cnd. a night. The restaurant however is affordable. With a grand piano in the restaurant and outdoor patio seating is also available. The décor in the lobby must be seen impossible to describe with a chandelier that illumintes the lobby and... More

This is an amazing piece of architecture and very eye catching from the Danube side. The green space around it lets you view it to its best advantage.

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.

Now the Foyr Seasons hotel and originally built for Gresham Insurance, the palace is beautiful. You can walk into the foyer to admire it further. We had a couple of drink from the bar and sat looking at the beautiful peacock gates. The drinks were quite pricey but we did get some mini cheese scones which were delicious and they... More

To get a sense of being a traveler in grand style at the end of the 19th century, stroll around this hotel's opulent lobby, or, if you want a real splurge, book yourself into a room. The tea service in late afternoon sounded good but we didn't get back to try it.

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...
