Map & Directions

It's 30 minutes by taxi from the airport or a 15-minute walk from both Nyugati and Keleti train stations. Travelling by public transport from the airport will take just under an hour -- take the 200E bus to Kőbanya/Kispest metro station (five stops), then metro line 3 to Corvin-negyed station (seven stops), before changing to tram line 4 or 6 to Blaha Lujza station (three stops), right next to the hotel.

Overview

"Perfect for a romantic weekend" says Condé Nast Traveller, the Boscolo Budapest is a Belle Epoque beauty with elaborate renaissance décor. Dating back to 1894, it’s surrounded by historic buildings in the Erzsebetvaros district, a now gentrified area known for its trendy romkocsma (ruin pubs).

Sights such as the House of Terror and the Hungarian National Museum are around 20 minutes away on foot, or jump on the hop-on hop-off city tour bus, which stops outside the hotel.

Back at the hotel, the New York Café is the real must-see. Once a favourite with the city's finest writers, today it is still the epitome of European café society. The ceilings are four storeys high and are embellished with cherubs, Italian chandeliers and acres of gilding.

Breakfast is served on the mezzanine, where guests have a front-row view of the frescoes while enjoying muesli, scrambled eggs, or the more traditional Hungarian fare, of rosemary-flavoured goose liver and stewed apricots.

At night seek out the intimate bar hidden on a side balcony. Draped in red velvet, it's the ideal setting for a post-dinner nightcap. There's also a gym and the ice-cave-like spa, with pool, steam bath, sauna and tea lounge.

The accommodation is super-sized -- rooms are just as large as suites in other hotels, while suites here are larger than the average city apartment. Dressed in a chic mix of gold and beige, the decor is "opulent but not stuffy", notes Fodor's, and bathrooms have large marble baths. The most decadent by far are the Presidential Suites, themed in royal blue and scarlet and shimmering with glass-blown chandeliers and mosaic-tiled bathrooms.
