Gresham Palace stands in the elegant Széchenyi István Square, right in front of the Chain Bridge. The building is an outstanding example of the Central European Art-Nouveau. Its interior features numerous stained glass, mosaic and ironwork masterpieces, winter gardens and other extraordinary elements. Originally the palace was an office building, built by the British Gresham Insurance Company in 1906. In 2001, the building was purchased by Four Seasons Hotels, becoming the first luxury hotel in the region. Today, Gresham Palace is considered to be one of the very best and most expensive hotels of Hungary, but you can well enjoy the Art-Nouveau atmosphere by sitting in for a cocktail.
In the establishment of Four Seasons, one of the main concerns was to preserve the 1000-year-old Hungarian spa traditions. The Gresham spa is on the top floor of the hotel, offering massage, various therapies, pools and separate steam rooms to guests in need of recharging.
