Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has declared about a recent benchmark in luxury hospitality in one of the most culturally-rich cities of Europe, after the makeover and rebranding of the erstwhile Gellért Hotel in Budapest. The renamed Mandarin Oriental Gellert, Budapest is anticipated to open in 2027 as a re-imagined Art Nouveau architectural gem with prime target on wellness. The landmark property first opened in 1918, which is retained by BDPST Group, as one of the capital’s most famous purpose-built grand hotels, situated on the Buda side of the city and just a small walk to the Liberty Bridge, linking Buda with Pest. The all-inclusive refurbishment of the Gellért Hotel is made upon Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s effective track record of revitalizing landmark properties with major significance like Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich, Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid, and Mandarin Oriental Palace, Lucerne.
The Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, Laurent Kleitman, said that they will take the same careful tactic in Budapest as they have with their other significant properties, making sure that they respect local artisanal craftsmanship and the heritage of Hungarian culture while integrating the finest luxury, modern comfort and sustainability standards for which Mandarin Oriental is known for.
