Some links to products and travel providers on this website will earn Traveling For Miles a commission which helps contribute to the running of the site – I’m very grateful to anyone who uses these links but their use is entirely optional. The compensation does not impact how and where products appear on this site and does not impact reviews that are published.

Bloggers and travelers are always complaining (rightly) that Hyatt’s footprint is too small to make it a viable first choice chain for all our travels so this should be welcome news.

Hyatt has announced that it has entered into a franchise agreement which will see the Bruden House hotel in the centre of Budapest renovated into what Hyatt is calling “an upper-upscale 110-room hotel”.

The property is expected to reopen as the Párisi Udvar Hotel “in 2018” – there is no indication in the press release when in 2018 we can expect the doors to open.

Here’s what Hyatt has had to say about its latest property:

The 20th century building is known for its eclectic design that offers a rich history and sense of place that will fit the brand’s promise of creating story-worthy and shareable experiences for the modern traveler. The building was completed in 1931 and remained relatively undamaged during the second World War after which the upper floors were converted into apartments. It has so far escaped major renovations, making it a unique treasure from the past. The future hotel incorporates elements from Moorish, Art Deco and Neo Gothic styles, representing the best of Hungary’s architecture. It has been home to shops, apartments and offices, as well as the Jégbufe ice-cream parlor fondly remembered by many local residents.

The hotel is located in the historic “Pest” side of the Danube and sits on Ferenciek Square which is within walking distance to numerous cafes, theatres and shops.

The property will offer:

  • 110 guest rooms and suites
  • 300 square meters of indoor meeting space
  • A spa and fitness center
  • A restaurant
  • A bar
  • A café

Per Hyatt:

The food and beverage outlets will be situated within the Párisi Udvar arcade, under the splendour of the building’s colored glass ceiling and hexagonal cupolas, offering guests a truly unique place to socialize and relax.

No mention has been made of pricing or what Hyatt category the new property will fall into but as all other Unbound properties are either category 5 or 6 hotels I’d expect the Párisi Udvar to follow suit (I’m going to predict it will be a category 5 property – 20,000 points/night).
