Historical Traveller Reviews of Four Seasons Gresham Palace Hotel


from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed here just before Christmas last year - how romantic. The hotel has been lovingly restored to maintain it's former glory and the architecture inside is just beautiful. The hotel was decorated in a really elegant and sophisticated way to celebrate Christmas. Nice piano bar for a relaxing drink. The room wasn't big but was very nice and cosy - the bathroom was brilliant with l'Occitane toiletries. A gym, pool, sauna and spa are also available and I was the only person using it - which was heaven! Breakfast wasn't buffet style but you get a generous allocation from the A La Carte included. The best hotel in Budapest I'm sure - and not at all overpriced.

Loved, loved the Four Seasons

from A TripAdvisor Member
Amazing! A one word that describes the service, the location, the public rooms, the guest rooms, and the physical building itself.

First, the thing that makes any hotel great is the service. And the staff at the Four Seasons is no exception. Especially the front desk, who provided great personal suggestions and were kind and generous people to simply talk with. It should also be mentioned that the concierge staff is quite amazing, and helped me to book last minute plane tickets too!

Second, the public rooms and physical building are amazing. The hotel is flawlessly integrated into the old Gresham Palace and rooms like the lobby, the pool room, and the cafes are amazing!

Finally, the rooms themselves are brillant. Perfect Four Seasons quality, very large with very nice bathrooms, and modern amenities. Again, as pointed out by one other Tripadvisor guest the TV seemed to be misformated for the English channels especially, but this is a minor flaw.

HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended...

My partner and I have stayed at some of the world's greatest hotels but this one... wow! While the rest of Budapest is (at best) rough around the edges, the Four Seasons is an astonishingly perfect oasis. The staff were friendly, knowledgable, helpful, and professional. The hotel itself was utterly gorgeous and had a perfect location walking distance from just about everything. The rooms were perfectly appointed... the bathrooms were especially lovely. Some strange things going on with the TV but I suspect that's just a problem with whatever is scaling it to wide-screen.

I won't go to Budapest for at least another decade while the city sorts itself out. But if you have to go, definitely make sure to stay at the Gresham Palace... it's, well, perfect.

No matter what - it is the best

Having been in this indeed very nice and luxurious hotel from the 14th-18th june 2005 I confess that it will be hard to find anything better.
Even the standard rooms are not that spacious the whole setup, service and surrounding is overwoulming.
E.g. I did not experianced yet a dreyer for the bathing clothes and this in a wunderfull changing room. The spa itself is not really big but it does well as there are other facilities like a yacuzzi - and all this on the 5th floor at the rooftop. The architecture is amazing, the food as well.
The only negative remark on this hotel was the impression I got in the preparation of a meeting we had there. Only in the very few days before our stay the refelction on our requests went on.
Anyhow, finally it all worked out well and so it is really a pleasure to make the experiance of a stay in the Gresham Palcae - the Four Seasons, Budapest.

A Stunning combination of gorgeous architecture, warm and professional service and excellent cuisine.
The hotel is housed in a renovated palace dating from 1906 and it is an architectural jewel.
Our Gresham room on the 5th floor was stylish, spacious and had a very original layout.
Food at "Gresham Kavehaz" and the fine dining "Pava" was excellent and the service was very attentive.
Don't miss this hotel as this is one of the most stunning FS!!!

FS Budapest is Awesome!

What a great hotel! I stayed there while passing through Budapest for a conference, and fell in love with the city, but more importantly the hotel! I had car service pick me up at the airport, and then on arrival the staff came out and meet me. They were all so polite and accomadating. The room was wonderful! I had room service for dinner and breakfast and was impressed with that as well. My room was on the 6th floor overlooking the interior courtyard (I didn't get the view of the Danube) but still it was beautiful. Everything about this hotel was amazing. If possible try for a room with a view of the Danube though (the river at night is, well words cannot describe). This was my first time with Four Seasons, and if their other hotels are similar to this one, then I am a customer for life!

s best hotel -

from A TripAdvisor Member
I recently attended a conference in Budapest with a group of 20 attendees, 3 hosts and 10 additional contributors. It was held in the hotel, utilising the full facilities on offer.

Without doubt, the Hotel was considerd (by our entire group) as the best in the world based on Location / outlook, building standard and quality of service.

From Australia to America to Europe - You can't beat this place! It truely is a Palace.

Congratulations to Four Seasons for managing such a terrific facility.

Worth the trip

from topsmed
The highlight of the Four Seasons is the architecture of this beautifully restored Secession building, with many striking features throughout the hotel.

Rooms vary in size and I preferred to pay a little more for a large room. Ask for a room away from the construction site (it looks like the work should take several more months).

Compared with the level of service I experienced in Budapest in general, Four Seasons has done a great job (really good concierge and reception staff). Still, the service in the restaurants could be better (kind staff but too much confusion).

One item to be improved is breakfast (besides the level of service, see above). Some days, guests had to queue (or were offered a table in the bar) because there was a problem of capacity in the Gresham Café. When breakfast is included in the room rate, guests are allowed to have pre-set breakfasts (continental, American, etc.) with a limited choice or items from the menu up to 5.900 forint per person. This strange system forces guests to make complex calculations. Some days, there was a buffet in the main restaurant, but the choice was limited.

Overall, this is a wonderful hotel (I visited several other hotels and they all looked bad compared with the Four Seasons) in a great location in an exciting city.

Sheer Bliss!!!

My husband and I spent three nights at this fabulous hotel to celebrate our first year wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday. In all honesty, I couldn't have imagined a better place. When I made the booking over the phone I knew this would be a memorable experience. The staff were brilliant, and incredibly helpful. No request was too much. The building itself is divine. The location second to none. The rooms were small, but the bed is so comfortable and the bathroom a sight to behold. And this was in standard room! The bar is something else, with a piano player providing live music. Both the cafe and restaurant were fantastic - we celebrated our anniversary at the hotel's Pava restaurant and it would have to be one of my most memorable meals. If you go to Budapest - stay here - it is worth the splurge honestly - you won't be disappointed :)

t say enough good things

from JTSF
This hotel is verything that you expect from a Four Seasons and more. The staff is amazing - extraordinarily professional and friendly. The building is incredibly beautiful. Our room was huge, with high vaulted ceilings and a very large bathroom (shower, bathtub, and separate toilet). Free internet access, morning coffee in the lobby. Highly recommend!

Top Local Tips for Budapest

Metro/subway tickets Make sure you carefully read the specifications of the various types of metro/subway tickets. A "one trip" ticket only entitles you to one trip, changing lines requires another. Only Hungarians can buy a "Family Ticket". You are best off buying a multi-day ticket like the 3 or 5 day or if you are only there for a day the full day ticket.

Széchenyi Furdo (Thermal Baths) Get the Metro to Széchenyi Furdo (Thermal Baths) for an experience you won't forget. Take your flip flops as your feet will freeze. Take 2 towels as they get very cold outside in the winter.

eating out Go to DIO. A trendy but very good restaurant two blocks from the Gesham Hotel
