Full accommodation information

With its historic architecture and unique geography that splits Buda and Pest by the River Danube, the Hungarian capital is one of Europe’s best city breaks; an experience enhanced by staying at the chic Ritz-Carlton hotel.

Set in a 20th-century building that’s walking distance to the UNESCO World Heritage Buda Castle, this recently re-imagined Budapest hotel is in a prime spot. Wander down to the banks of the River Danube; stroll to the city’s famous thermal bath houses; and take a walking tour of the Hungarian Parliament buildings; all within 20 minutes of The Ritz-Carlton Budapest. If you’re staying for longer than a weekend in Budapest, then a day trip to Vienna or Bratislava is quick and easy by train.

From many of the spacious rooms and suites you’ll spot landmarks including St Stephen’s Basilica and Erzsébet Square. Even at entry level the bedrooms are large, with marble bathrooms that have a separate shower and bathtub. Suites with a separate living area are popular with families, and upgrading to a room with Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge access affords plenty of extras, including; breakfast, light lunch options, hors d'oeuvres, desserts and a complimentary beverage service.

The city is well-known for its thermal baths, and the hotel’s spa is inspired by this tradition, featuring a naturally-lit indoor pool, steam and sauna rooms. Families have the group’s trademark Ritz Kids offerings at their fingertips, which at this Budapest hotel treats children to a stuffed toy and colouring books on arrival.

Dining at the hotel’s signature restaurant is a sophisticated Italian affair, and there is a lounge famed for its epic afternoon teas and one of Budapest’s best Sunday Brunch menus. A contemporary bar serves cocktails and bar snacks from 5pm until late.

The 200 rooms and suites offer all the 5-star hallmarks synonymous with Ritz-Carlton in a building that’s historic to Budapest. The tall ceilings give a real sense of space and grandeur, while the large windows offer views of Elizabeth Park and famous city landmarks. Some rooms are better suited for couples and single travellers, and there are options for families too. Upgrading to Club Lounge access affords a multitude of additional privileges.
