Designed by Zsigmond Quittner this hotel has had several owners, now it represents perhaps the best Budapest can offer. The style is art nouveaux, you will not find anything nicer.

One of the greatest buildings alongside the Danube promenade. This building was made in the begining of XX century as an office building, and now is a hotel under the Four Seasons brand.

This building is one of the gems of the Pest side. Currently housing the prestigeous Four Seasons Hotel. Built at the turn of the 19-20th Century by the British Gresham Insurance Company. The street-level restaurant is excellent, good food, good location (wonderful view to the Buda side to the Royal Castle), very good service.

This former palace is today the Four Season Hotel. One of the best example of the art nouveau in Budapest. If you just drink a coffee, you can still admire the beautiful building

So TripAdvisor made me aware of this building - no historical significance but everyone just loved the architecture and restoration and that it was a Four Seasons hotel and close to the Danube & Chain Bridge. So I looked up the Four Seasons website and found that they served afternoon tea. What a nice treat - I have an extensive... More

A block off the Danube, I entered what I thought was one of the many Budapest palaces. And it once was. What I saw looked like a hotel, and looks are not deceiving. This IS a hotel, a palatial one at that! The opulence that greeted me overwhelmed. And to think that what once was available in Budapest from the... More

This hotel was one of the most stunning and architecturally beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in! Even if not a guest take the time to go in and look at the interior of the lobby and the beautiful wrought iron entrance. The hotel bar in the lobby is a throwback almost Gatsby style, very pricey but worth the experience.... More

Trip Advisor's Things To Do list led us to the Four Seasons Grisham Palace Hotel. The art nouveau lobby and bar are impressive. I can only imagine what the rooms must be like. We only enjoyed the architecture, décor, and ambiance over drinks in their lobby bar. They were pricy, but worth the experience.

Thank Wanda71

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.
