The neo-baroque building – Klotild Palace has a fascinating history. Built by distinguished architects Korb & Giergl in 1899, the 4-floor palace was the former residence of Archduke Joseph and Archduchess Klotilde, daughter-in-law of the Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph.
It was nearly destroyed in the 1945 siege of Budapest, and later housed the Hungarian Post Office and the infamous communist-era dollar shops.
Nowadays, its location near the famous Váci utca pedestrian shopping street, with its designer shops and charming, romantic squares recalls its late-19th-century lustre. An Italian investor acquired the Klotild Palace, and based on a 20-year operating agreement with Mellow Mood Group, developed the property to the standards of a Buddha-Bar Hotel concept.
