A Grande Dame is Born
Matild Palace is a Budapest landmark commissioned by the Archduchess of Austria in the 19th Century. In converting it into a Luxury Collection Hotel, we wove together a story rich in sense of place, cultural inheritance and the Duchess herself to create a hotel that is full of meaning for today’s guests.
At street level, interiors were restored and updated, and a new fine dining restaurant was introduced. Above, we totally re-configured floors to achieve 130 guestrooms and suites. Throughout, the aesthetic blends hints of Baroque, Romanesque and Art Nouveau, layered with the Hungarian heritage crafts of metalwork, embroidery and tile-making. The colour palette of aquamarine, green, gold and copper belongs to Budapest. Naturally, in a city that treasures its thermal bathing there is a spa and, on the rooftop, a bar and outdoor terrace offer unforgettable memories rooted in our narrative.
