The four seasons who have taken over this grand palatial place should be more welcoming of tourists all season. Especially, winter season.

The Palace
Nov 2019
One is in awe when one visits Budapest. The architecture of this Imperial city is so magnificent that I can't put enough word to describe it. A city built by the Habsburg dynasty and proclaimed it as their Imperial capital; The Austro-Hungarian Empire. And the Gresham Palace is one of those buidlings, and worth a visit.

This beautiful palace now houses the luxurious Four Seasons hotel and offers a wonderful view of Buda and the Chain bridge.
The hotel is beautifully lit after dark and its lobby is very elegant and worth a quick peek.

We couldn’t afford the room rate, so we had to settle for afternoon team stead.

Very good value, nice setting. The food was very good and quantity was plenty. Staff is very professional and friendly. The hotel is beautiful, right in front of the bridge.

Fine example of Art Nouveau architecture facing the Danube
Oct 2019
Gresham Palace is a fine example of Art Nouveau architecture and is now the Four Seasons Hotel. In 1880, the London-based Gresham Life Assurance Company decided to build its foreign headquarters on the site, commissioning local architects Zsigmond Quittner and Jozsef Vago to design the new building. The palace was completed in 1906 and named after the 16th-century English financier Sir Thomas Gresham, the founder of the Royal Exchange in London. The palace served as an office building and residence for senior staff of the Gresham company. During the Soviet occupation after World War II, the Red Army used the building as a barracks; it became an apartment building during the People's Republic of Hungary. In 1990, the national government presented the palace to the city of Budapest. It was renovated into the Four Seasons Hotel Budapest Gresham Palace, which opened in 2004. Original details such as the large staircase, stained glass, mosaics, ironwork, and winter gardens were restored. The exterior, in Art Nouveau style, has an ornamental facade with round pilasters, a curved roof line and embellishments over the windows. The hotel is beautifully lit at night and is open at all times.
