FOUR SEASONS in Budapest, the finest luxury hotel in Hungary
Four Seasons Budapest is true Palace Hotel. It is not only the finest hotel in Hungary but also a property which is a museum in itself, being a legendary landmark of the beautiful Hungarian capital. The famous Chain Brige which is a ”Liberty Statue” or ”Arc de Triomphe” of Budapest is somehow in an incredible synergy with the Four Seasons Gresham Palace Hotel. They only do the two monuments form an architectural symbiosis but they also remain forever in the minds of all foreign visitors to Budapest.
While many travellers might find Budapest similar with Czech capital Prague, the Four Seasons in Budapest helps differenciate indefinitely the two capitals. It is not only the Danube river which charms the eye of any traveller but also the entire architectural ensemble.
Four Seasons Gresham Palace is the finest luxury hotel in all of Hungary and the ONLY true deluxe hotel in Budapest. Some may argue that the Four Seasons in Budapest could improve once another international competitor would open in Budapest. Park Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental, Peninsula or Shangri La are just some of the ”traditional” international competitors of Four Seasons hotels worlwide. The only key competitive and almost impossible feature to replicate feature of this hotel is the heritage value of the Palace building in Budapest. Service cannot get any better as it is already flawless. Design and decor cannot get any better – they offer no room for review or any criticism.
The few issues which the Four Seasons Budapest can and I am sure will gradually improve: old generation TV plasma screen, the slow internet access, in room sound technology as well as several service issues such as name recognition, towels, swimming pool area chaiselongs, the main cosmetics line of the SPA, smell inside the steam room, valet and front door welcome as well as in room minibar service.
The little secrets of the hotel which would not only impress you but will also pamper and spoil you:
- turndown ”good night” amenity
- the complimentary home made herbal and rose cold tea at the SPA
- the wine massage treatment offered in the SPA using the famous Tokaj spirit
