Mamaison Hotel Andrássy
At home on the city's most prestigious avenue, this five-star boutique hotel dating to 1937 was constructed in an eye-catching Bauhaus style. Renovated a decade ago and refreshed in 2007, the Mamaison combines luxury and a central location — Heroes Square, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the government district are all nearby — with a period look and feel. The hotel's 70 guest rooms, lobby, and award-winning restaurant (Baraka) embody the best of the Art Deco style. Etched glass, mirrors, and wrought iron are incorporated in a design by celebrated architect and Olympic gold medalist, Alfred Hajos.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
