The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott International, announced the opening of Matild Palace this summer. Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, Matild Palace has undergone a meticulous five-year transformation led by award-winning interior designer Maria Vafiadis and acclaimed local architects Péter Dajka and Puhl Antal to become a 130-guestroom luxury hotel. Steeped in history, Matild Palace was built 120 years ago during the Belle Époque era and was developed under the patronage of Her Imperial and Royal Highness Maria Klotild of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to serve as the social hub of the city. Matild Palace was part of her vision to create two baroque palaces, acting as a gateway to those entering the ‘Pest’ side of the city from Elisabeth Bridge.

FELIX KITCHEN & BAR
The name of the AQVA hall was inspired by the past of the building's water house: the heart of the pump house was the boiler room, which used to be the exhibition space of the Ybl Buda Creative House. Today, it has been completely transformed into an arena that simultaneously embraces gastronomy and contemporary art. The first exhibition is called “AQVA: proximity to the Danube”. In the joint organization with the acb Gallery, you can have lunch and dinner in company with the works of Imre Bak, Agnes Denes and Gyula Pauer.
Casa Cook Samos
Samos is an island rich in both history and beauty. Beyond its bustling beaches and lively town, there are countless hidden gems, including quaint churches, fresh waterfalls and lush forests in the shaded inland mountains just begging to be explored. Inspired by traditional greek houses, or kamares, found in samian villages, the architecture is down-to-earth and inclusive. The historic concept of a Grecian village has been embodied in the modern space, where the hotel’s infinite swimming pools act as the town centre of each small ‘neighborhood’ within the hotel — offering space to immerse with those around you when the mood strikes, or retreat back to your room to recharge in complete solitude.
