[dropcap size=small]T[/dropcap]he Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has expanded to Hungary with their newest hotel in Budapest . Housed in a building constructed in 1914 and situated in Elizabeth Square, the Ritz-Carlton Budapest is right by the city’s historical sites, such as Roman Catholic church building St. Stephen’s Basilica and one of the town’s main attractions, the Danube River.

“Budapest is perfectly located as the European gateway to travellers whether coming for business or leisure,” said Herve Humler, President and Chief Operations officer of The Ritz-Carlton, “But not only are we looking forward to welcoming our guests and sharing our vision and service standards; we are also excited to become an integral part of the thriving, vibrant city itself.”
