The Sleep Friendly Hotel Awards for this year were presented on the occasion of World Sleep Day at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. In Hungary Matild Palace, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Budapest and Hotel Vinifera Wine&Spa Balatonfüred were honored with this accolade for their efforts in crafting an exemplary sleep environment for guests and their dedication to ensuring quality sleep.

As in previous years, this year's World Sleep Day was marked with an exciting international scientific conference at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, organized by the Hungarian Sleep Association, where the keynote speakers explored the question of how we can sleep better. In addition to the presentations, the Sleep-friendly Awards were also presented, with Matild Palace being one of the winners in the category of Sleep-friendly Hotel, alongside Hotel Vinifera Wine&Spa in Balatonfüred.

This recognition is bestowed upon only two hotels in Hungary annually, one in the countryside and one in the capital. The awards were presented on March 13 by the leaders of the Sleep-friendly Program, the Hungarian Sleep Association, and the Hungarian Hotels and Restaurants Association.    

The certification is awarded to accommodations that meet the highest standards in the field of sleep culture, by sleep doctors, health and lifestyle professionals, and experts with extensive experience in the hotel industry. The criteria are a multi-faceted assessment of the conditions for restful sleep, including the quality of the basic facilities in the rooms, the conditions for restful sleep, the availability of additional facilities and services, the condition of the facilities, their cleanliness, the information provided to guests, the measurement of satisfaction and the handling of complaints.

As part of Marriott International’s The Luxury Collection brand, Matild Palace is putting special emphasis on quality sleep, using the Italian textile company, Frette’s premium line of matrasses and linens, exclusively made for The Luxury Collection. From its bases in Monza and Milan, Frette creates luxurious products that are renowned for their elegant design, originality, and unmistakable texture, making them the first-choice for many high-end hotels, including those within The Luxury Collection portfolio worldwide.

"Running a luxury hotel presents significant challenges. Through experience, we've discovered that despite our exceptional services, diverse dining options, and professional staff, nothing surpasses the importance of our guests enjoying a peaceful night's sleep. Quality rest is fundamental for any hotel, and at Matild Palace, we prioritize it immensely. We spare no effort in ensuring top-notch beds, mattresses, and linens. I believe that even Sleeping Beauty would have chosen us for her century-long slumber if given the chance,” said Selim Ölmez, general manager of Matild Palace.
