“Beautiful location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Beautiful hotel, excellent service, great breakfast buffet (not included), great location. If possible, get a room with view of the bridge of chains. Five Star. Great room service. It is Five Star and you pay for this, but if you can afford it, it is the place to stay.

Room Tip: View of Bridge of Chains.

This property is a five + star property. The staff - in particular the concierge staff were incredible. The Gresham Palace is a very unique property - what a beautiful hotel. The view of the chain bridge and th Buda side was breathtaking. The recommendations of the concierge staff were over the top - particularly the wine tour. Would highly recommend this property - a must for anyone traveling to Budapest.

This is the grand Gresham Palace and it deserves it's reputation. A true marvel to walk into and see the Art Nouveau architecture from the lobby all the way into the bar and restaurant. It is like many 5* in Budapest overlooking the Danube river and the castle. Friendly reception who even welcomed us in our very casual attire in the evening.

This hotel can be descried with one word, gorgeous! From the outside to the lobby, to our beautiful guest room. While visiting friends who had recently move to Budapest, they knew exactly were we were staying. The hotel is located near the river on the Pest side of the city. There is a palace atop the hilly Buda side that looks down at the Pest side; as you look down near the bridge the hotel blends into the city with class and elegance, it is simple iconic and stunning. It is in a central location, with a lovely restaurant that has an outdoor patio portion. I'm a big fan of room service; the goulash is more a soup and is terrific! Freshly baked breads with this soup was pure comfort. Couldn't have been happier with the stay! A Four Seasons treasure!

I was impressed by your wonderful comments regarding your stay at Four Seasons Gresham Palace in October last year. It is great to learn that you still cherish nice memories of your trip to Budapest and your stay at the Four Seasons since then and how wonderful it is that you even remember the taste of our goulash soup and the freshly baked bread we serve with it.

Thank you for recommending our Hotel to all Tripadvisor readers and travelers!

This beautiful hotel is impressive, the decors of the lobby, rooms and the rest of the areas area are amazing. Location is perfect and the views from the hotel are awesome! The chain bridge and the palace at night are beautiful. Breakfast nice but for a Four Seasons should be more impressive. Rooms and the baths are quietly and beautiful arranged and very comfortable.

I was delighted to read that you took great pleasure in the décor and architecture of the Palace and that you were amazed by the gorgeous view to the Chain Bridge and the Castle Area.

Gorgeous authentic architecture, amazing location, and high-class service. We had a room on the mezzanine floor with a beautiful view of the majestic lobby and river. The service was amazing. They brought a tray with cookies, candies, and toys from Hungary for our son at our arrival. They even provided a bag with slippers, toiletries, and towels to go to hot springs, which was the highlight of our trip.
The two gentlemen at Concierge desk were knowledgeable and very helpful.
