Best hotels in Budapest, in the centre of the city

Callas House is not just a hotel in Budapest, it is a story from the past. The story began in 1881 when Zsigmond Komperz, a successful merchant and banker, commissioned architect Vilmos Freund to design a palace for his family. The location was perfect: along Sugár út (now Andrássy út), shortly after the Hungarian State Opera House opened its doors.

Freund was no ordinary architect. His genius and Komperz's ambitious vision resulted in a building that soon became one of the jewels of Budapest. The neo-Renaissance palace impressed the people of Budapest and soon became one of the city's most iconic landmarks. The building has seen a lot since then. It has been a residence, a restaurant and even an office for the dressers of the Opera.

Today, the Callas House is an elegant boutique hotel that combines modern comfort with a historic atmosphere. Our hotel's rooms and suites are tastefully furnished to meet all your needs. The rooftop terrace offers a champagne bar, a cosy restaurant and a wellness area for guests to relax and recharge. Every corner of the building tells a story of the past, whether it's a finely crafted façade or an elegantly furnished room. The hotel's interiors are a meeting of past and present: neo-renaissance architecture and art deco interiors create a stunning contrast, yet harmoniously blend together.

Best hotels in Budapest with restaurant and café

In 1911, Károly Seemann opened the Secession Café, which soon became a favourite meeting place for Budapest's elite. Artists, writers and politicians gathered here for lively discussions over a cup of coffee. The café's lively atmosphere reflected the cultural boom of the time and it soon became one of the city's most influential cultural centres. In 1919 the café was renamed the Windsor, but it remained a favourite haunt of Budapest's intellectuals and artists.

In 2006 the ground floor was restored to its original function and the now famous Callas Café & Restaurant opened. The café's elegant art deco interior is the work of renowned interior designer David Collins. Collins' work has included Gordon Ramsay's The Wolseley restaurant in London, The Ritz Carlton apartments in Bangkok, the Hilton in Prague and even Madonna's luxury apartment.

The Callas Café & Restaurant is a jewel box on Andrassy Avenue. The atmosphere of the café evokes both the glamour of the past and the comfort of the modern age, providing the perfect setting for a relaxing coffee, a business lunch or a romantic dinner - the hotel and restaurant have separate entrances, but hotel guests can enjoy breakfast in the restaurant in a dedicated area.
