Hyatt has opened a newly-renovated property in Budapest under its upmarket Unbound Collection.
The 110-room Párisi Udvar Hotel Budapest is on Ferenciek Square, and incorporates elements from Arabic, Moorish and Gothic design.
The building’s previous incarnations include a shopping centre and, in the early twentieth century, Budapest’s Central Savings Bank.
Its original façade, staircases and decorative tiles have been preserved as part of the refurb, and the mascot of the bank, a honey bee, still features on the exterior.
Art Nouveau guestrooms feature Hungarian-made furnishings and works by Hungarian contemporary artist Agnes Toth.
The hotel also features 18 suites and two Royal Residencies, including the penthouse Budapest Residence with a rooftop terrace.
Dining options are the main restaurant, Párisi Passage Cafe & Brasserie, with international dishes served from an open kitchen, and the Patisserie and Café, offering traditional Hungarian pastries. By evening the latter converts into a cocktail bar.
Hyatt has added four meeting and event spaces across 300 sqm, with space for up to 160 guests.
The hotel also has a spa and 24-hour gym.
Párisi Udvar Hotel Budapest is the fourth Unbound Collection property in Europe, joining Hôtel Martinez in Cannes, Nish Palas in Istanbul, Hotel du Louvre in Paris and Hotel Sofia Barcelona in Spain.
The brand, which aims to showcase each property’s unique identity while offering Hyatt perks, also includes locations across the Americas, as well as one in China.
