We booked a room with a view of the Danube and a balcony on the 5th floor. Expensive, but well worth it! Excellent concierge service, they booked wonderful restaurants for us, and a private guide Andrea Magyar who was fantastic.

This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in - magnificent and well run, great location, and a place not to be missed. The renovations if this historic site is one of the most tasteful and exquisite we have ever seen. The staff was attentive, effective, and very polite.

From checking in to checking out you are pampered and spoilt. In a hotel who's foyer and lobby both stunning and elegant. The piano bar is perfect to relax at the end of the evening with your drink of choice (recommend the cocktails) and chill out listening to the talented pianist. The perfect location to explore this beautiful city.

Beautiful hotel, great views of the river, service that cannot be beat, great food. The Gresham Palace deserves it's reputation as the best hotel in Budapest, if not in Europe. The concierge and bellmen were addressing me by name in an only 5 day stay. The wait staff was wonderful, the cocktails the best I've had. The concierge was extremely... More

I have heard that this is one of the prettiest properties in the Four Seasons group and after our recent visit I believe it! High-ceilings, gorgeous floral arrangements, pretty banisters and beautiful stained glass throughout the property make this palace seem like a fairy tale.

I stayed in the Hilton in the palace in Buda which was nice, but the Four Seasons far exceeds that in facility, food, and service. Exceptional location for running, shopping, and dining. Cannot say enough good things about it.
