The Matlid palace – a UNESCO World Heritage site in Budapest, is all set to reopen as a hotel after a five-year renovation. Yes, that’s right! The former imperial palace has undergone a significant transformation and has now emerged as a 130-guest room luxury hotel.
Led by interior designer Maria Vafiadis and local architects Péter Dajka and Puhl Antal, the revamp includes a mixture of antique and modern luxury. In all, the property features 111 rooms and 19 suites, each adorned with multi-floor layouts, chandeliers, and 360-degree views of the city.
Guests at the hotel will be able to relax at the hotel’s Swan Spa, dine at one of the restaurants helmed by Wolfgang Puck, or sip on a cocktail at the rooftop bar or secret liquor library. Later in the year, the property will also host contemporary cabaret shows and social events for the general public.
Commenting on it, Philipp Weghmann, vice president and global brand leader of The Luxury Collection, said, “The property allows our guests to realize the fantasy of living within a royal palace, elevated with modern amenities and impeccable service, and we look forward to welcoming them as they discover this timeless and inspiring city.”
