After four and a half years of continuous renovation, one of Budapest’s most special hotels, the Paris Court Hotel Budapest, has finally been completed, which the operator plans to become one of the three best hotels in the capital.
The Paris Courtyard on Ferenciek Square is one of Budapest’s most well-known buildings, unique in Europe.
The 110-room boutique hotel joins the American Hyatt Hotels Corporation’s “The Unbound Collection by Hyatt” brand, which offers Hungarian and international guests unique interior design solutions worldwide in the heart of Budapest. 18 of the rooms are suites, two of which are presidential residences. The top floor, spacious 130 and 290 m2, has spacious terraces of Budapest and Paris residences with great views.
Originally inspired by the “Passage des Panoramas” in Paris, the most expensive site in the capital was once the first modern business building in Hungary, with 32 stores. At the turn of the 20th century, the Downtown Savings Bank built its famous headquarters in this place, owing to the bee motif of the restaurant, which is a symbol of wealth and fertility. The new hotel and its associated Parisian Passage Café & Brasserie restaurant, revitalized with majestic tiles, Murano glass mosaics and luxurious prism crystal domes, revive the vibrant atmosphere of the early 20th century. The restaurant combines elements of international gastronomy with Hungarian cuisine. In the evening, guests can relax with handmade cocktails at the piano.
The in-house Zafir Spa offers an infrared cabin, a steam cabin, a Finnish sauna, an ice fountain, hydromassage, body and face treatments, nail care and beauty services. Although the whirlpool is quite small compared to a 110-room hotel, anyone who comes for a spa experience can easily access the nearby Gellért Bath.
It has four different, 300 square meters multi-purpose conference rooms that can accommodate up to 160 people.
“Paris Property Ltd. and Mellow Mood Hotels are among the first in the region to join the Hyatt Group brand. At the same time, we are proud to bring back this landmark of Budapest, which is an architecturally fascinating and rich history for all modern travelers, ”said the owners of Mellow Mood Hotels.
Once opened, the passage is still viewable and accessible to anyone. The Parisian Passage Café & Brasserie restaurant and café has been replaced by the former shops for convenient operation. The shops are accessible from the street front, Ferenciek tér, which is aimed at a wide range of customers, from the smallest to the largest, and is in the process of being finalized.
