Hotel Brand: Boscolo Budapest
Opened in 1894, the elegant building that houses the New York Palace Boscolo Budapest was originally home to the famous New York Café, the most prominent traditional coffee house in Budapest at the turn of the 19th century. Over the past century, wars and negligent regimes left their ugly marks on the once magnificent building. The Boscolo Group acquired the New York Palace in 2001 and after extensive renovations Boscolo Budapest opened its doors to guests in early 2007. The five-year restoration project was lead by creative architects, Maurizio Papiri and Adam Tihanyi D. The hotel has an eclectic style, based on Italian Renaissance. Architecture buffs will enjoy the historic building and literary types may find inspiration at New York Café, which used to be a meeting place for artists and intellectuals.
Hotel facilities at the New York Palace include a spa and a fitness centre. Inspired by an alpine ice-tunnel, the spa has waterfalls and Swarovski crystal decorations, as well as a steam bath, a Jacuzzi and an indoor relaxation pool.
The hotel's focal point is the New York Café with its restored ceiling murals, frescoes and gilded stucco columns. The menu recalls the multicultural cuisine of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Classic dishes like Beef Goulash, Fishermen Soup, Chicken Leg Paprikash-style, Wiener Schnitzel and Grilled Foie Gras are served along with famous desserts such as Dobos, Sacher and Eszterházy cake. The hotel's Salon Fine Dining Restaurant offers re-invented traditional Hungarian cuisine and there is an elegant Nyugat Bar for drinks and cocktails. Free Wi-Fi is available.
