The history of Mellow Mood Hotels

The company was inaugurated in 2000 with our first self-developed hotel, the Baross City Hotel in the neighborhood of the Keleti Railway Station. The design of our three-star hotel evokes the atmosphere of real Budapest flats. In 2002 we opened the Marco Polo Top Ho(s)tel, a few minutes from the Blaha Lujza Square, which has become a popular hotel for backpackers in recent years. Two years later, we built the Atlas City Hotel in the heart of the capital, which has a great advantage as a downtown hotel with an inner yard where our guests can park their cars. In the same year, Star City Hotel opened in close proximity to the East Railway Station in a really quiet and peaceful neighborhood.

We continued to grow in the years to come: in 2005 the Délibáb City Hotel and in 2006, the Domino Top Ho(s)tel and Europa Hotels & Congress Center were added to the portfolio.

In 2007, our group opened its first self-developed four-star hotel, Best of Budapest award-winning Atrium Fashion Hotel. Classical architecture, combined with contemporary design, gives the hotel a unique atmosphere, creating a premium quality and impressive hotel for our guests.

A year later, our two newest hotels, the Promenade City Hotel and the Buda Castle Fashion Hotel, debuted with the “Hotel Room of the Year” award. The elegant Promenade City Hotel is located on Vaci Street, from which you can easily get to anywhere in Budapest. The special attraction of the Buda Castle Fashion Hotel is that it is located between the ancient walls of the Buda Castle, so you can take a light evening walk through the Castle District. We are proud that the Buda Castle Fashion Hotel won the “Hotel of the Year” award in 2016.

In 2009, a new Mellow Mood Hotels member, the four-star Expo Congress Hotel won the “Hotel Room of the Year” award. Near the Hungexpo, this 50-meter high hotel offers our guests a spectacular panoramic view of the capital.

In 2010, we added two four-star hotels: Cosmo City Hotel and Alta Moda Fashion Hotel. The Cosmo City Hotel is located just a few meters from the Central Market Hall and the Danube, providing a true downtown experience full of the neighborhood’s hustle and bustle.

The new hotel of the year 2011 was the 4-star La Prima Fashion Hotel, located in the immediate vicinity of Vaci Street. The hotel has the harmony of inner-city feeling and maximum elegance.

In the next year, our hotel group added the Estilo Fashion Hotel and the Mirage Fashion Hotel, two four-star hotels. At the Estilo Fashion Hotel on Vaci Street, the duality of youthful colors and modern luxury creates a special atmosphere.

In the same year, two major milestones were reached: we opened our first five-star hotel, the Buddha-Bar Hotel Budapest and our first foreign hotel, the La Prima Fashion Hotel Vienna. The Buddha-Bar Hotel Budapest offers guests a real Far-East experience in the capital, crossing the threshold to reach a completely new world.

In 2014, Mellow Mood Hotels won the management rights of a hotel based in the Parisian Court. The five-star luxury hotel will open in 2019 after the full restoration of the building’s former splendor, under “The Unbound Collection by Hyatt” brand.
