From my point of view, this buildng has the most beautiful façade in Budapest. I was a bit disapoonted by the interior as I expected more art nouveau decorations. Anyway, lovely place, worth visiting. An adternoon tea, coffee or hot chocolate in the lobby or Kolazs bar would be very nice and not expensive at all.

Everyone should go walk thru the lobby. Have a drink on the patio or have tea in the lobby area! Gorgeous!

The hotel's striking art nouveau lobby, with its soaring ceiling and fanciful detailing, brings a smile to your face as you enter. Service at the Gresham is excellent, and the hotel's central location is convenient for sightseeing. We were upgraded to a nice (although small) room with a view of the Danube, the Chain Bridge, and Buda as a backdrop.... More

We had a very good afternoon tea here. A couple of service hiccups to start with, but soon settled and we had a lovely time.

We stopped at the restaurant several times during our stay for cocktails and snacks. And the bar could not be beat! Loved the building and the bar itself. Great snack foods too. We did have lunch one time as well, and we were a bit disappointed. Recommend just popping in for a "sundowner" and sausages. YUM!

This most beautiful Palace which nowadays houses the Four Seasons Hotel was commissioned by the London based Gresham Life Assurance Company is just opposite the Chain Bridge. It is well worth visiting if you are interested in the Secessionist Art Nouveau. The ironwork representing two magnificent peacocks at the Hotel gate, the floral motifs, the stained glass windows, the sweeping... More

We decided that this was one venue we had to try if just to experience the architecture and décor. We were not disappointed. We went for cocktails in the cocktail bar area to the rear of the ground floor of this stylish marbled mansion. A pianist played quietly in the corner while our order was taken for two drinks. My...

This art Nouveau building is beautiful, facing Széchenyi Square and the famous chain bridge. The stained glass and mosaic are amazing.

We decided to have lunch here and it was very good and very reasonable. I thought, being the Gresham, we would be paying 'top dollar' but it was great. Would recommend it as an experience.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
