The Radisson Hotel Budapest BudaPart had its grand opening in the Újbuda District west of the Danube on Oct. 19, after a successful trial run that started during the World Athletics Championships this summer. The purpose-built hotel serves as a comfortable retreat and business hub, adding new bar and restaurant options to a fast-developing area.
The BudaPart hotel is the first Radisson in Budapest, but the fourth from the group brand portfolio, joining the Radisson Blu Béke Hotel, Budapest; Park Plaza Budapest; and Park Inn by Radisson Budapest.
The 198 rooms and suites at Radisson Hotel Budapest BudaPart are designed in the signature Radisson style, the company says, with plastic minimized. The rooms are equipped with plush mattresses, rain showers, multiple USB ports, and complimentary Wi-Fi to ensure connectivity. The hotel also features spacious premium rooms and junior suites with even more floor space and in-room espresso machines.
The Radisson BudaPart is also a destination for business gatherings with four well-equipped meeting spaces, flooded with natural light and adaptable for various setups. With the capacity for up to 228 attendees, a boardroom and breakout areas, the conference space provides a suitable venue for productive meetings, complemented by high-speed Wi-Fi and modern audio-visual technology.
Inspired by the diverse flavors of Shanghai, the hotel’s all-day dining option, the Shanghai Kitchen restaurant serves a variety of classic and contemporary Chinese dishes prepared from fresh, locally sourced produce. Meals can be paired with signature cocktails, selected wines, and traditional Chinese teas.
The lobby bar serves refreshments throughout the day, Chinese teas and Shanghai Kitchen-inspired cocktails, as well as cakes and desserts. The rooftop bar, which opened in October, is one of the hotel’s highlights, with its open-air terrace and panoramic views of the BudaPart neighborhood. Coffee, tea and a range of mixed drinks are served here, accompanied by light meals and snacks.
Practicality and Comfort
“The Radisson Hotel Budapest BudaPart combines the predictable practicality of a business hotel with the comfort of a wellness hotel, so we are confident that our business guests will return with their families. Our conference rooms and leisure facilities are designed to perfectly serve complex needs,” said hotel manager Carien Veldman.
The BudaPart neighborhood also offers plenty of opportunities for those seeking an active lifestyle. The natural beach, park, and waterfront promenade with its jogging paths, provide an ideal setting for a morning run or leisurely stroll. The hotel gym completes the fitness offer.
“We are delighted to welcome the Radisson to BudaPart, as the South Buda area has long lacked a business hotel. It is also important feedback for us that a new Radisson business hotel has found a home here,” emphasized Ákos Kiss, managing director of Property Market, the developer of the BudaPart neighborhood project.
“The essence of a 15-minute city is a full life, with work, services and relaxation, within walking distance. Such a hotel fits perfectly into this concept. As a business hotel, they also benefit from this environment, where the ‘city within the city’ is present, allowing guests to enjoy both business services and the recreational opportunities of the city center,” he added.
