Why Stay At Buddha-Bar Hotel Budapest
The second Buddha Bar Hotel, a buzzy spot on the Danube's west bank, is set in a Habsburg-era palace.
Not unlike Budapest itself, the second Buddha Bar hotel—102 rooms and 2 restaurants on the Danube's west bank—offers a mix of old and new. The old: The 1900 Belle Époque exterior, with its rounded towers and ornamental masonry, a reminder of the hotel's past as a Hapsburg-family palace. The new: An Asian Zen interior, with its red-and-black color scheme, a two-story gilded Buddha in the lobby, and ambient music in the background. It's a see-and-be-seen spot. The namesake restaurant comes alive from Thursday to Sunday, and the Klotild Bar and Lounge, with its glass ceiling, is the place for martinis and sushi within view of Buda Castle and Gellért Mountain.
For a buzzy property, the spa is surprisingly serene. Guests can reserve the Finnish sauna for 10-minute complimentary treatments.
There's a foodie landmark nearby: Stop by 150-year-old Gerbeaud Café, located on pedestrian-friendly Váci utca, for a slice of its world-famous Dobos cake.
Arrive at Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport (BUD) which is approximately 10 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 30 and 45 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.Váci Utca 34, Budapest, Hungary
