Marriott International has added a new hotel to its global portfolio with the opening of Dorothea Hotel, Budapest, Autograph Collection. The new luxury hotel is located in Budapest’s District V and offers 216 rooms and suits.

At the heart of the hotel is the inner courtyard – home to Pavilon Restaurant & Bar, an airy, lush garden oasis, where guests are surrounded by nature. The hotel is anticipating a further two restaurant openings helmed by three-Michelin-starred Chef Dani García in 2024; BiBo, an Andalusian Brasserie on the rooftop offering panoramic views of Buda, and Alelí, an authentic osteria from Italy on the ground floor.

Wellness-loving guests can seek inner sanctuary at the Spa, complete with a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and fitness centre, spanning a generous 650 sqm. 

Envisioned by acclaimed Italian architect and designer, Piero Lissoni, Dorothea Hotel is a blend of architecture and interior design that honours both history and modernity. The three buildings were established in different eras including Weber (1873), the neo-renaissance former headquarters of United Budapest Metropolitan Savings Bank; Mahart (1913), the art nouveau former headquarters of Hungarian River and Sea Shipping Company; and Munnich (1937), the modernist building with art deco and Bauhaus elements. Local historic preservation experts have worked with the hotel to retain the key elements of each era, including a remarkable heritage staircase.
