The Boscolo Budapest Hotel is housed in an eclectic building, built between 1892 and 1894 by the architects Alajos Hauszmann, Flòris Korb and Kàlmàn Giergl, for the Hungarian headquarters of the New York Life Insurance Company, mixing the past styles of the Greek, Latin, Renaissance and Baroque, in a prodigious creative Art Nouveau unit.

During the two wars, it lived a period of decay, in the middle of 1900 it reopened its doors; however, only thanks to the scrupulous restoration by the Boscolo Hotels, the building has returned to the old splendors. An intervention that lasted 5 years (2001-2006), with the collaboration of the National Center for Restoration and reconstruction of monuments and signed by the architects Maurizio Papiri, Adam D. Tihany, Massimo Iosa Ghini and Simone Micheli, internationally renowned architect, has returned to the city, and the whole world, this work of art of high artistic value and of great social interest, which is currently protected by the Museum of Fine Arts.
On the ground floor is the historic New York Café, opened in the year 1894 by the Hungarian coffee industrialist Sandor Steuer, a place of privileged encounter of the artistic and cultural life of the city.
It is part of the history of Budapest and Hungarian literary life, in the past it was the official site of the magazine “Nyugat.

The New York Café is the dormant heart of the Hotel: like a beautiful chest on four floors, it retains the original decorations that made it famous all over the world. The ceiling is adorned with beautiful frescoes by Gusztav Mannheimer and Ferenc Eisenhut, from the mid-nineteenth century. Sumptuous Venetian chandeliers diffuse a soft light that is reflected in the gilded stuccos of the spiral columns, creating colourism of great effect.
Entering the New York Café means taking a leap into the past: the pageantry, opulence, and refinement welcome visitors, charming them with the fascination of the Belle Époque.
While outside, the bronze Lucifers remind us of many painters, actors and intellectuals who have always been habitué of coffee; inside, you can enjoy the proverbial cordiality of the waiters and the delicacies proposed by the bartender or chef.
