Hotel Description

The “Pest” in Budapest — the flatter, more cosmopolitan region to the east of the Danube — has lately played host to a growing population of chain boutiques. We’re ultimately partial to sui generis hotels, of course, but in the meantime we approach this trend with cautious optimism, happy to recommend any establishment balancing old-world hospitality with design appeal. Such is the case with Iberostar Grand Hotel Budapest, another jewel in the Spanish chain’s crown: a business hotel in the business district, yes, but hardly staid. Practitioners of attainable luxury, well worth the “Grand” descriptor.

Facing Szabadság tér helps a ton, too: most of the hotel’s 50 rooms, distributed over five floors, sport a lordly view of the park’s sycamore-and-fountain largesse, all the better for the Art Nouveau architectural backdrop of banks and embassies. Inside, the baroque-contemporary dialectic is alive and kicking, as evidenced by the splendor of the hotel’s public spaces — ornately spiraled curlicues and fabric hangings contrast with clean, weathered-brick walls to surprisingly harmonious effect. You’ll want to stick around to drink it all in, and thankfully you can from the adjacent, guests-only bar or from Borkakas, the main restaurant, where classic Magyar plates meet haute culinary technique under a warm array of Edison bulbs.

The rooms amp up the tactile luxury, especially in the spacious suites, which feature canopy king beds, a pillow menu, and en-suite lounges. Fabrics do great work here, as well, adorning the light fixtures and a whimsical selection of crimson chairs. There’s a 24-hour spa and fitness center complete with a 12-top jacuzzi and hammam — and once you’ve shaken off the jet lag, pregame with some wine on the terrace, then head out on the town in search of the “ruin bars” of recent fame. They’re an ingenious solution to the problem of derelict urban lots, transforming otherwise unusable space into pop-up pubs with distinctive Eastern European quirk. Look for paper lanterns, mismatched furniture, and (most importantly) cheap-but-quality suds.
