Best Hotels in Hungary
A 19th-century spa and the city's largest conference facilities make this historic hotel popular with leisure and business travelers.
This majestic property dates back to 1896, and while the ambience is historic, the creature comforts rely on the best the 21st century has to offer. The exterior architecture evokes the French Renaissance style, while the interior pays tribute to the Art Nouveau movement. Each of the 413 guest rooms and suites is done in a subdued modern style and features LCD HD TV, a mini-bar and a marble bathroom. There are also 26 serviced apartments for those in town for longer stays.
The Royal Spa boasts the same heritage as the hotel, and it has been refurbished with a focus on its most notable feature: the original 15-meter swimming pool. Visitors may no longer find the pneumatic chamber, but they can enjoy saunas, a steam bath and pampering ESPA treatments. For house dining, Rickshaw Restaurant specializes in the flavors of Asia, while Bock Bistro presents an eclectic menu that blends Hungarian culinary traditions with Spanish tapas. Also of note is Brasserie and Atrium serving upscale Hungarian and international cuisine. Business travelers are catered to with Executive Club accommodations, which include breakfast, a cocktail hour and more. As for on-site meeting facilities, the Valletta Exhibition Centre can be reached from the baroque-style Grand Ballroom by way of a glass bridge.
