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.

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.

The Four Seasons Hotel did a beautiful job restoring the Gresham Palace. Be sure to observe the hotel from both the inside and outside.

This used to be a palace but is now a ritzy Four Seasons hotel. However, the outside has been restored to its former splendor and it is right on the Pest side of the Danube. You can go in and take a quick look at the plush lobby, bar, etc where the rich and super-rich meet to bxxxxh. Worth it... More

Excellent end of the Chain Bridge for which the London-based company Gresham in the early 19th century spared no resources.

Loved the Four Seasons immensely. The location is great, the facility is luxurious, and the customer service is spectacular (both the hotel and the Kollasz restaurant.) I cannot say enough good things about it.

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.
