Wonderful hotel in a very convenient location. The rooms are adequate with very nice views (if you have a river window). This hotel is very much a Four Seasons experience. We hired a driver to take night photos and were quite impressed with the young man. I recommend Alex to anyone wanting a friendly driver. We came here in part... More

Though it's a hotel you can ask to go inside, they are very kind. It's a beautiful building, I think it's even better by night when you walk near the Danube maybe ;)

We visited for a look inside. This is a beautiful building that had fallen into dereliction, but was rescued and lovingly restored. Looks gorgeous at nighttime from the outside, and warrants a walk through the reception area if you are not fortunate enough to be staying there. They hold a little Christmas Market at this time of year.

Be sure to "sneak" in to the hotel itself to admire some of the indoor architectural work. Truly a masterpiece.

For the first time in 2014 they are hosting wonderful vendors inside the hotel for a special Christmas market, very different from the other ones in town - but you can still get mulled wine!

Amongst many other architectural wonders. Directly faces the Chain Bridge so easy to take in during a walking tour.

Decorated for Christmas in an atmosphere of outstanding architecture, Art Nouveau, this is an exquisite place to stop for a coffee or glass of wine.

Unless i won the lottery I could never stay in this beautiful palace. However the interior and exterior is breathtaking. You can take photos, which I did, and have afternoon tea, which I didn't. Would love to stay here if I can afford it in the future.

Beautiful art deco architecture, especially the wrought iron "Peacock Gates". Some devilish looking light fixtures line the exterior facade. Ask permission to take inside pictures, just avoid the guests. Best time to visit is the evening when lights are on.

We made an afternoon stop for high tea and were so very glad we did. High Tea is set to beautiful live piano music, with wonderful little snacks served on a beautiful tea sets. Like everything in Hungary, the price was better than what I expected, although comparably high. I would recommend High Tea if you have time to spare... More
