The Hungarian capital is famous the world over, not just for its architecture, rich – and often turbulent – history, great beer and friendly people, but also for its spas. Indeed, no visit to Budapest would really be complete without wallowing in the natural hot waters that have been enjoyed by locals and visitors alike for centuries. Located on the Pest side of the majestic Danube, the Iberostar Grand Budapest Hotel lets visitors sample the wonders of a Hungarian spa treatment in complete luxury.
As one of the few establishments in the city with its very own luxury spa, it gives guests the chance to enjoy a little decadence and unwind in warm, natural spring waters and indulge in a variety of specialist treatments, including Turkish baths and expert massages. If that’s not enough, then the Grand Budapest Hotel also boasts a world-class restaurant offering the very best in Hungarian as well as international gastronomy, plus all its rooms are kitted out to the very highest standard. Meanwhile, guests travelling on business are able to enjoy all the very latest facilities, including complimentary WiFi in each room, meeting rooms and a host of other features designed with VIPs and executives in mind.
In fact, though it may be just a few minutes from some of Budapest’s best-loved tourist attractions, guests will find everything they need all under one roof and may have trouble leaving this award-winning hotel. Should they manage to tear themselves away from this exclusive enclave of luxury, history-loving guests will find themselves just moments from Liberty Square, an impressive public space famed for its historicist style of architecture as well as for being home to the US Embassy, the headquarters of the Hungarian National Bank and a striking monument to former American president Ronald Reagan. Additionally, the mighty Danube river is just a stone’s throw from the hotel lobby, plus attractions such as the national parliament and Buda Castle are either walkable or a short, cheap taxi ride away.
