Prior to going to Budapest, we contacted the hotel to ask whether they did breakfast for non-guests. We received a reply back in flawless English informing us that they could book us in, but priority would be given to guests of the hotel, should it be overbooked. Fair enough. At £24 per person we were expecting something pretty special. But... More

Incredible location and property. Four seasons service. The best place to stay in Budapest. Most rooms offer views to the bridge. Art nouveau style, big rooms, high ceilings. Walking distance to night spots and shopping (traditional and trendy).

This is an excellent hotel, hands down. Warm and thoughtful staff throughout. The location is perfect you are at the Danube and if fortunate you can get a room overlooking the beautiful Chain Bridge. We were fortunate enough to have this view while celebrating our 35th Wedding Anniversary. Thank you to all the staff for a memorable stay. Can't wait... More

We were lucky to have a river view corner room. Just having the view of the palace and bridge would have been enough! (Our wonderful travel agent, Matilde Broder, had the hotel well prepared for us including the nice room.) The staff at the hotel makes you feel very welcome and takes every opportunity to help you feel at home.... More

Located within walking distance to some of the must visit attractions. Excellent staff and beautiful interior, the room is clean. Breakfast is wonderful as well. A must stay when you are in Budapest or at least go for a photo shot

Completed in 1906, neglected during WWII and the Communist era, and severely damaged by a flood, the Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace was restored to its original glory during the hotel conversion about ten years ago. The building's original marble staircases, stained glass windows, decorative tiles, etc., make it an Art Nouveau landmark, and the soaring, glass-topped lobby provides a... More

Flew in to Budapest for a short city trip, and while we were planning to stay at The Corinthia (I liked their London location well enough) it was fully booked. We stayed here instead, and I don't regret it at all. A Park Suite was booked and we were upgraded for free to a suite with a lovely view of... More

Legendary Four Seasons standards.....and a restored palace in a perfect location by the river in Budapest - what's not to like? Well I found the service levels not up to Four Season Standards...little details....a little mold in the shower, a curt but polite reply at the front desk, barely warm scrambled eggs at breakfast....Not enough to say don't go but...
