This is the four seasons hotel so other staying here than looking in the lobby, eating, etc. Is about it. We go to have coffee and cake now and than and it is treat. It is lovely inside and around the holidays is nicely decorated. Close to the basilica and many restaurants.

Worth a visit even if not staying there. Stunning Art Nouveau hotel. Walk around foyer & look at light fittings, lift features, windows & stair well.

Don't be intimidated by the swanky hotel chain just walk in & admire the grandeur of the former Life Assurance building with art deco details. Well worth having a bite to eat in the cafe/bar. A little pricey but nice surroundings with staff second to none.

This was our favorite place to take pictures in all of Budapest. The small park is a great spot to take pictures of thd chain bridge as well as castle hill and the Danube. We also loved the hotel right there lite up at night!

Highly recommend a visit to the Four Seasons Hotel (Gresham Palace) for coffee or sorbet to see the beautiful interior.

This is one of the most impressive buildings in Pest, next to the Parliament, of course. Nowadays, the palace serves as a hi-end hotel, but you can still appreciate its stunning interiors just by grabbing a drink at the hotel's bar or lobby. Absolutely beautiful.

Thanks to preservationist, it was saved and remodeled. It is now The Four Seasons Hotel. We did not go inside as we were in a hurry, but did stop to admire the gorgeous archetecture of the... More

This is now a Four Seasons and is quite decadent. There is a very lovely bar with very fussy cocktails (still reasonably priced given the exchange rate). Highly recommend having a drink or two here and soaking in the luxury.

If you are lucky the doorman will let you stroll in the foyer and you will marvel at the art nouveau archictecture of this historical building.

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.
