Hungary . New York Palace Captura de ecr   2011 11 15 14ROYAL LUXURY HOTEL.

The old capital of the Hungarian kingdom, crossed by the majestic Danube, Budapest is an incredible crossroads of civilization and culture, an inspiring muse for generations of artists. The Boscolo Budapest embodies its soul perfectly and is an obligatory destination for anyone fascinated by excellence. The location of what was called the ‘most wonderful café in the world’, it is a work of art now restored to its former glory. Old-style prestige is united with maximum levels of comfort guaranteed by a most elegant interior design: marble, bronze, brocade and period frescoes magically complement the crystal and steel typical of contemporary design in an attempt to find perfection.

HISTORY

FIVE STYLES HOTEL.

The eclectic building of the Boscolo Budapest was constructed between 1892 and 1894 by the architects Alajos Hauszmann, Flòris Korb and Kàlmàn Giergl, for the Hungarian offices of the New York Life Insurance Company, by transposing the old styles of Greek, Latin, Renaissance and Baroque together in prodigiously-creative Art Nouveau.

Alongside such poetic architecture there is contemporary restoration work, carried out by the architects Maurizio Papiri, Adam D. Tihany, Massimo Iosa Ghini and Simone Micheli, who worked on the development of the modern Boscolo Budapest.

The ground floor houses the historic New York Café, opened in 1894 by the Hungarian coffee baron Sandor Steuer, and is a place to meet the artistic and cultural life of the city of Budapest.

During the two world wars, the building underwent a period of decadence. In the mid-XX century, it opened its doors to guests once more, but it was only after attentive and scrupulous restoration work involving the whole building and lasting 5 years (2001-2006), by Boscolo Hotels, and in collaboration with Italy’s National Center for the Restoration and Reconstruction of Monuments, that a place of high artistic value and great social interest was returned to the city and to the entire world.
