The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott International, has announced the opening of Matild Palace, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Budapest. Owned by Özyer Group, this iconic opening marks Luxury Collection Hotels brand debut in Hungary.
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 Antal Puhl to become a 130-guestroom luxury hotel.
