This truly stylish European Hotel has already created standards in the Hungarian capital through its location, style, facilities and personalized services.
Formerly known as Adria Palace built between 1914 and 1918 to host the Italian Adria Insurance Company, this pre-modern office and Apartment Building was designed in 1913. Due to its fine elegance, classical nobility and ideal location, this stone covered building not only represented an outstanding architectural quality, but has also been declared a historic monument. Some of the architectural characteristics are wrought iron grilled Balconies in front of the first Floor, and arched Windows with French Balconies on the upper Floors. The smoothness of the stone covered facade is contrasted with the perle-form ornament of the window frames and the sculptured cylindrical form on the corner sides of the Building. The Adria Palace was badly damaged by a bomb during World War II and was partly burned down. Reconstruction took place between 1949-50. The Apartments and the Shops came to an end when the headquarter of the Budapest Police moved in and stayed in the Building until 1997. Various proposals were then made to upgrade the Building to become either a Luxurious Hotel, Deluxe Apartment or a Shopping Center, within the original structure that was not authorized to be transformed. In 1998 the 2080 m² built in surface was bought by the Duna Plaza group to become Le Meridien Budapest 5 Star Hotel opened in October 2000.
Le Meridien Budapest is a real jewel ideally located in the historic downtown, in the cultural, shopping and Business Centre. Only 30 minutes drive from Budapest`s International Airport, and within walking distance from the Danube, the Opera House, Academy of Music, theatres, museums, spas and most of the main sights of the city.
The Hotel is entered from Erzsebet Square and the new Entrance Hall immediately summons up the design philosophy applied to the interior throughout. An intimate, almost domestic scale, a traditional image reflecting the architecture of the building, fine finishes, period furniture, artwork reflecting Hungary's rich artistic traditions.
