Budapest, Hungary

Situated in the eastern district, known as Pest, the hotel resides in the old building of Gresham Palace. It sits right on the river with a gorgeous panoramic view of the city’s west side. We were asked to work with the general manager to create a collection for their lounge, and also to provide books for some of their suites.

For the library lounge we were able to source 20 titles that spoke to the hotel’s sense of place and also complimented their interior décor. For the suites we put together a collection of ‘city reads’ specific to Budapest and its culture. Guests were able to enjoy books on subjects that ranged from history and literature, to food and drink specific to the location they were in. We also included two illustrated titles on Hungarian art. In addition to this, we supplied the hotel with a Budapest city guide created by Wallpaper, that would be given out to guests as part of a welcome package.
