The Danubius Hotel Astoria, located in the heart of Budapest, was built on the site of the city's medieval town walls. Opened in 1914, the Hotel Astoria was given its name by Mihály Geller, its first General Manager and an industry expert, who formerly worked for the world-famous Waldorf Astoria in New York. During its varied history the hotel was renovated and modernized several times. Each time the owners took care to restore it to its former glory. The hotel's lobby is luxuriously elegant and the communal areas are decorated in Empire style with opulent marble covers, glitzy mirrors, stained-glass windows, fancy carpets, crystal chandeliers and wonderful works of art. With its turn-of-the-century atmosphere and style, the hotel has served as a film set for both Hungarian and international movie shoots.
The Hotel Astoria's 138 rooms feature air-conditioning, beech wood furniture, soundproof windows and wired Internet access. Onsite dining is available at the traditional Mirror Café & Restaurant. The restaurant serves Hungarian and international flavors, Hungarian wines, desserts and coffee specialties in a turn-of-the-century coffeehouse atmosphere.
Additional hotel services and amenities include, 24-hour reception, business center and Internet corner, room service, laundry and valet service, a gift shop, reservation and ticket assistance and airport transfers (for a fee). Parking is available at the nearby Franklin Parking Garage. Hotel guests receive a 20% discount.
