Home Decor Ideas share with you the Budapest’s Newest Luxury Hotel Is Built Inside a Restored UNESCO Landmark. Opened this summer, the posh Matild Palace–the city’s first Luxury Collection Hotel -sits along the Danube River.
The late 19th century was a particularly heady era for Budapest. The elegant architecture was flourishing, and Princess Marie Clotilde of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, who resided in Hungary with her husband Archduke Joseph Karl of Austria, wanted to partake in the Belle Époque’s renaissance. And now, after years of neglect, one of those UNESCO-protected structures was just transformed into Matild Palace, the city’s first Luxury Hotel.
“The building holds the key to the city’s glamorous past, with history found at every turn, and we look forward to welcoming travelers to discover its magic and allure once again.

In the 130 guest bedrooms and suites—which were converted from the apartments where members of the monarchy and upper classes once dwelled—there are jolts of peacock blue and stunning embroidered headboards that reference The Adventures of Sindbad, a Hungarian classic published in 1911 by Gyula Krúdy, one of the writers who frequented the Belvárosi Coffee House literary hangout once housed in the palace.
