Our reason for being in Budapest was to join a Viking River Cruise sailing down the Danube. We always like to check into a hotel a couple of nights before a cruise to relax and recharge our batteries after a long flight. The hotel is directly opposite Budapest's famous Chain Bridge and the Danube, where we were to join our river ship. We had seen this hotel on a previous visit and decided that we would love to stay there on a future visit.

The hotel did not disappoint. The building has been restored to incorporate every luxury feature but keeps the feeling of "Old Budapest". Our spacious room overlooked the Danube and included a most comfortable lounge area. It was so comfortable and welcoming we did not want to leave the room.

On our first evening we sipped pre dinner drinks while listening to the pianist in the cocktail bar. For dinner our hearts were set on something Budapest is famous for, schnitzel with cucumber salad. Our meal was served in the Hotel's elegant dining room where we could see the floodlit castle atop the hills of Buda. The service was excellent, as was the meal. We were told by our waiter that Sunday Brunch the next day was something very special.

Breakfast the next morning from the buffet plus specially cooked to order dishes from the menu was out of the ordinary. Checking out was almost a sad occasion, as we did not want to leave.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Danube River.

I am 2nd generation Hungarian and have always wanted to visit Budapest. Our stay at the Gresham Palace made out visit very special. The hotel was outstanding in all regards, from the room (with an awesome view of the Chain Bridge and the Danube), to the service (special thanks to Zoltan and Peter), to dinner (my husband's first experience with chicken paprika - he loved it) and, of course, the great spa (highly recommend a facial). What a wonderful experience! I also highly recommend a private walking tour with George. Budapest and the Gresham Palace are on our list for a return visit, hopefully sooner than later.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Park Suite and it was awesome!

Thank you so much for choosing Four Seasons Gresham Palace for your recent stay in Budapest and for a starting point in exploring your Hungarian roots. I appreciate your kind words about our magnificent hotel building and thank you for pointing out the caring service provided by Zoltan Keindl and Peter Buday at the Concierge. I am very happy that your husband got to enjoy his first Chicken Paprika in our restaurant and it is great to hear that the Spa and the city tour were also a delight.

I hope that we will have the opportunity of welcoming you back to our Hotel in the future.

Sincerely,

Beautiful art deco architecture at the best place in Budapest with direct view on the chain bridge and the castle hill, you will never forget. A first class atmosphere due to distinguished guests.

Room Tip: Rooms with Danube view are a must

The Gresham is a spectacularly beautiful hotel---you want to hang out in the lobby area all day, and the lobby tea bar is lovely with wonderful food and great service. The spa and gym are spectacular--lovely pool, nice workout area and great spa services with a wonderful, joyful staff. The rooms are huge and the service is faultless.

The hotel is right by the chain bridge in a wonderful location to enjoy both the Buda and Pest sides of the city.

If you want a five star experience in Budapest, this is the place.

I have stayed at the FS Budapest three times and every time was fantastic. The staff was superb, as was the service. The restaurants excellent, the building incredible. Definitely one of the best hotels I recall ever staying at, even in the Four Seasons chain itself. It is definitely the best hotel in Budapest, perfectly positioned right off the Chain Bridge. Whenever I will return to Budapest I will stay only at the Four Seasons Gresham Palace.
