Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas has announced the opening of Anantara New York Palace Budapest Hotel. This is the brand’s debut property in Hungary and continues its expansion in Europe.
Situated in the heart of Budapest, one of the most unique and fascinating capital cities of Europe, the opulent property is an architectural ode to the Belle Époque era, exuding old-world glamour blended with contemporary luxury.
Since its construction in 1894, the palatial building has acted as a gathering place for Hungarian intellectuals and is located on the sophisticated Erzsébet Krt boulevard on the Pest side of the Danube River. Designed by the mastermind Hungarian architect, Alajos Hauszmann, the design features Italian Renaissance, Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau influences.
Anantara New York Palace Budapest Hotel is located at just a 20-minute drive from Budapest International Airport. The hotel features 185 guest rooms and suites, accented by centuries old art and antiques. The two Presidential Suites each boast 135 square meter of space bedecked with handmade Murano glass chandeliers, custom designed furniture, luxurious marble bathrooms and signature Italian design features.
Presently undergoing its transition to the Anantara brand, Anantara New York Palace will introduce a full suite of Anantara hallmarks during the first half of 2022. The soft renovation, which will be completed in Spring 2022, will reveal a glamorous new lobby, stylish rooms and the addition of the White Salon, a glitzy all-day dining restaurant serving Hungarian cuisine.

The hotel offers four distinct dining options. The New York Café, led by Chef Andras Wolf, is the beating heart of the property, serving sumptuous fine dining accompanied by resident classical musicians beneath frescoed ceilings, Venetian chandeliers and gilded balustrades. The Poet Bar is an intimate setting for after dinner drinks, whilst the Deep Water Room serves signature Anantara breakfasts and all-day dining. Bathed in natural light from a vast glass ceiling, the Atrium is a vibrant hub for socialising, offering cocktails and light refreshments.
The new Anantara Spa, upon its completion in late 2022, will consist of 4 treatment rooms and relaxation facilities including a sauna, steam room and 15-metre heated relaxation pool. Treatments will touch on the healing philosophies of Anantara’s Thai roots with elements inspired by the thermal bath heritage of Budapest. The hotel also houses an elegant ballroom for up to 550 guests.
Anantara New York Palace Budapest Hotel joins the existing European Anantara portfolio which includes Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort, Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Marbella, and Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome.
