It doesn't get much better than this: a centrally located, super-deluxe hotel in a museum-quality landmark with the prettiest views in town. No detail has been spared in restoring this stunning 1906 art nouveau palace to its original majesty: delicate wrought-iron vents in the hallways, exquisite gold mosaic tiles on the facade, stained-glass windows, and cupolas. Three magnificent stairwells are so grand that you may not want to use the elevators. Rooms, some with balconies
and vaulted ceilings, are similarly large and plush. Spanish-marble bathrooms—unlike any in Budapest—have both showers and deep soaking tubs. The lobby café is modeled after the building's original.
