Towering over Ferenciek tere for more than a century, the palace of Belvárosi Takarékpénztár (Downtown Savings Bank) was built in 1912-13 based on the designs of Henrik Schmahl. Following a long renovation, the building reopened as a 110-room luxury hotel in 2019, as part of the Hyatt „The Unbound Collection by Hyatt” brand. Covered in Zsolnay tiles, the building shows traits of Arabic, Moorish and Gothic architecture. The glass-domed passage, once lined with shops, is now the hotel’s reception area and a café, but you can check it out even if you aren’t staying at the hotel.
