Absolutely beautiful hotel in a perfect setting - truly a stay in a palace. The breakfasts were no more than okay, but the room service was utterly delicious and (to a Western European) extremely affordable. The service in general was wonderful, too. The superior rooms were rather small, but beautifully furnished and equipped. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed at the gresham palace for 2 nights in a deluxe twin. The hotel is flawless. The service is exceptional - extremely efficient yet understated. We booked a hotel car to pick us up from the airport and were met by a polite friendly driver who escorted us past the huge chaotic taxi queue and into an air-conditioned immaculate mercedes. The armrests had a bottle of water and a refreshing face cloth. Well worth the 65 euros.

Upon arrival the door staff greeted us by name and sorted out our bags. The staff at reception had our booking all in order and had given us a room with a view as we had requested. The lobby is beautiful and at this time of year looked amazingly festive - huge christmas trees and candles everywhere. Our room was perfect - not overly cluttered with furniture, just a large elegant room with quality furniture and an amazing bathroom. We had a roof terrace which we could see the royal palace from.

Breakfast the next day in our room arrived on the dot of 9 o'clock as ordered. The food was perfectly prepared, hot and exactly what we ordered. We ate in the cafe on the first night which was great. Food was good quality and again the service was perfect.

The hotel staff helped with anything we asked - booking a restaurant, organising taxis, changing money etc.

This is the best hotel I have stayed at. It is set in a beautiful imposing old palace, the service is excellent, the decor is extremely classy and the overall atmosphere is laid back and relaxed. The location is also perfect - 5 mins from the parliament on foot and 5 mins from the christmas markets.

We absolutely loved and enjoyed this hotel. We had never stayed at a Four Seasons before, and were surprised to learn they could accommodate 4 of us (2 adults, 2 teenagers) in one very large room. The staff went far out of their way to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. The concierge were perfect and helpful. The hotel is fairly new, and we very much felt the pride of the staff in working there. The rooms and amenities were luxurious (clearly 5 star), and the lobby and public rooms are exquisite. We had breakfast in the casual restaurant every morning and the food and service were excellent. The location couldn't be better - it is directly in front of the Chain Bridge which is gorgeous both in the day and at night. We also used the spa which we very much enjoyed.
I will share an embarrassing, funny story about our stay, because the hotel staff were so wonderful in how they dealt with us. I fell asleep one night eating a little Godiva chocolate and when I woke up there was chocolate all over the sheets ! I was so embarrassed. We called housekeeping and insisted on paying for the sheets (which were magnificent, embroidered, probably 800 count). They would not let us pay for them, and were incredibly gracious about the way they handled this. The Gresham Palace is probably in our top 2 of places to stay in the world - and we travel often. Don't hesitate - this is the place to stay in Budapest !

My Girlfriend and I have just returned to London having spent a fine weekend in Budapest at the Four Seasons.

Service is intuitive, friendly and personable. Each member of staff is extremely proficient. We were addressed by our names always, even by staff we had not encountered previously. Every amenity requested from housekeeping and the concierge arrived in the room within three minutes. In room dining was delivered at the time promised, to the second. It’s clear that every member of staff takes pride in the hotel and its ethos; indicative of excellent management, good pay and conditions.

We enjoyed a memorable ten course ‘degustation’ menu in Pava (included in our ‘Romance in Budapest’ package) and the sophisticated atmosphere and quality food and drink in the bar.

The building is a beautiful piece of art nouveau architecture, renovated and decorated to the highest standard. The public rooms are exquisite; luxury without ostentation or vulgarity. Our bedroom was understated and refined, free from tiresome gimmicks, getting the basics right (ample space, exceptionally comfortable bed, DVD player, private bar, spacious and well equipped bathroom). And the Spa is a definitive example of excellent modern design and refined luxury.

It’s expensive but worth every penny, especially considering that this level of hotel quality in Western Europe or the US demands far higher prices. And we gained further perspective having had to stay a third night in Le Meridien after our flight was cancelled; the Four Seasons was beyond comparison.

Just a great stay. the property was in the perfect location, right in the heart of town just across from the palace. a nice short walk to everything! i don't throw this word around a lot but i would have to describe it as "whimsical". the lobby was stunning and the rooms were very spacious. an incredible stay to say the least!
