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.

The stunning palace structure has turned to a 5-star hotel and situated in front of a nice park and Chain Bridge. Apart from the outlook itself, you could have a cup of tea in the Four Season Hotel for a break and look into the internal part of the structure at your leisure.

Visited the hotel for a quiet drink in the lobby piano bar. The music added a nice ambiance to the art nouveau interior and splendid chandelier.

Read the title. Read up on this "palace" before going there and then decide if it is what you were looking for. If not, give it a miss. If yes, then go and see, admire the interiors, have a cocktail. I went anyway but, overall, was disappointed; on trips like this I look out for places of historical interest. Old... More

Stunning place to stop for a few minutes, relax in the lobby in comfortable seating areas, and enjoy beautiful architecture. Great chandelier of Bohemian glass.

Worth seeing this hotel directly across from Buda Castle. It's a five star hotel with cocktails and service to match. It's a bit like stepping back into a more opulent era and worth spoiling yourself for.

It sits and the end of the bridge like a castle. It is on the opposite side of the Danube from Buda castle. It also has an interesting history.

I was more impressed with the park in front of this palace than the palace itself. You will come across this park and palace anyway (if you plan a walk down the Danube). It is right in front of the Chain Bridge, so you do not need some special plans for 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.
