Ritz-Carlton opens its first hotel in Hungary
Situated in the heart of the cultural and shopping district, the property is on the doorstep of Budapest’s heralded historic sites and minutes away from the glittering Danube River.
“It is an absolute privilege to open the first Ritz-Carlton hotel in Hungary,” says Herve Humler, President and chief operations officer, The Ritz-Carlton.
“The Ritz-Carlton service standards are globally recognised and we’re delighted to bring them to a new market. Budapest is an extraordinary city and perfectly placed to welcome the newest property in our portfolio”.
The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest, is housed within a protected historic building, located on Elizabeth Square, with views over St Stephens Basilica. Constructed in 1914 as the headquarters for an Italian insurance company, the building has seen many incarnations, but today it opens as a luxury property with 170 elegantly appointed rooms and 30 suites.
