This epic local hotel has been a prominent part of the area for over a century, after first opening its doors to guests in 1914. The name Astoria was added by the hotel’s first manager, Mihály Gellér, who was inspired by his time working at New York’s iconic Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Since then it has welcomed thousands of guests through its doors. From everyday folk to the super famous. Even the Hungarian literary icon Sándor Petőfi stayed here. Who knows, you might be staying in the very room in which he created one of his iconic works. The hotel is also home to the iconic Cafe Astoria. Renovated in 2014, this cafe arguably serves some of the best food in Budapest.
