Budapest, in the basin surrounded by the Carpathians, called ‘Ak-ink’ or ‘abundant water’ by the Celts and then ‘Aquincum’ by the Romans, is well-known for its hot springs and has many stations where you can take the waters. For this reason the luxury Boscolo Budapest had to have an exclusive SPA, where you can rediscover your psychological and physical well-being with the help of masseurs and therapists of the highest level. It is an ideal place to relax or be cosseted in, and you can choose from a broad range of treatments, provided in collaboration with SPA Experience.

The Boscolo New York Café is considered to be ‘the best café in the world’; it was not only the literary pantheon of the Bella Époque, but also a famous café where you can still taste traditional flavors and typical dishes, in harmony with the Italian cuisine, and with a welcome and elegant and creative cuisine which results from the ‘Boscolo Food Experience’.
In a secluded setting, separated by light crystal but still immersed in the magical atmosphere of the historic café, there is the New York Salon Restaurant. And then the Bar, a perfect place to enjoy drinks, cocktails and vintage brandy in the necessary tranquility. The breakfast room has an essential fascination but offers the usual viewpoint of a small table on a large balcony.
New York Café
This is the hotel’s beating heart: like a precious jewelry box on four floors, it retains the decorations which made it famous all over the world.
The ceiling is adorned with marvelous frescoes by Gusztav Mannheimer and Ferenc Eisenhut, dating from the mid-XIX century. Sumptuous Venetian chandeliers produce a magical light, and golden stucco work covers the twisted columns: the effect is enchanting.
Entering the New York Café means taking a step back into the past: visitors are overwhelmed by the whim, opulence and refinement of the place. The more time spent in these rooms, the more one begins to appreciate the fascination of the Belle Époque. While outside the bronze Luciferes, symbols of artistic spirit, recall the many painters, actors and intellectuals who have always frequented the café, inside one can appreciate both the proverbial affability of the water and the delights offered by barmen or chefs.
It is a precious piece of Budapest and of Hungarian literary life, once the offices of the magazine ‘Nyugat’.
One anecdote tells of how the famous writer Ferenc Molnár, on the day the café opened threw the keys into the Danube so that it would never close.
Similar to a protected enclave, a velvet setting is created by the tenuous light and red charged with mystery, which welcomes those guests seeking quiet and intimacy.
New York Salon
The service is excellent and the cuisine surprisingly exquisite and creative. Each dish is accompanied by the best Hungarian wines. The liqueurs trolley is definitely worth your attention.
The restaurant will be closed from August 1st to August 21st.
Breakfast with the thousand fragrant types of bread of Hungarian tradition and the exquisite pastries which stand out between the teapots and trays. A good morning comprised of goodness and charm.
