    The oldest hotel in Hungary, Pest-Buda, has reopened after renovation as a 10-bedroom luxury boutique hotel.

    Originally opened all the way back in 1696, the hotel is located in the Buda Castle district, the historic heart of the Hungarian capital. Pest-Buda offers four different room types – courtyard room, simple room, suite and atelier suite.

    Atop the building, two atelier suites feature floor-to-ceiling glass walls, freestanding bathtubs, and oversized walk-in showers, all set against the backdrop of the original exposed brick baroque roof structure. A sleek, family-owned boutique hotel, it is surrounded by historic buildings and peaceful streets, while being only 10 minutes away from the city centre.

    Interior designer Tibor Somlai was commissioned to give the property a “casual-classical Hungarian bistro and rustic luxury boutique hotel” style. The interior designer attempts to conjure an aesthetic that reflects our concept of “casual-classical Hungarian bistro and rustic- luxury boutique hotel in a fresh way.

    It’s part of the Budapest-based Zsidai Gastronomy & Hospitality Group portfolio.
