Hotel Nemzeti Budapest has a unique history. The 117-year-old building was the cultural centre of the art world and a popular meeting place for artists in the early 1900s, due to the nearby National Theatre. The theatre, as the bourgeoisie’s only option for entertainment at the time, was a social hotspot, so the cafés, restaurants and casinos near the theatre had a sparkling social life.
Our goal is to return to these roots, to support artists and create a rich cultural space in the hotel with diverse events and meetings.
The hotel is reborn in the „Artistic Spirit of Budapest”. Hotel Nemzeti played a major part in Hungarian cultural life, and is retaking its central role once again.
Our mission is to provide a venue for various artistic events. We aim to become a popular meeting place for art lovers, therefore we introduce contemporary artists to the public and host the Nemzeti Arts Club. We want to become the meeting point of the historical past and the modern present, which perfectly complement each other. Following the renovation, a special and unique atmosphere has developed in the hotel, making it a vibrantly modern space on historical foundations.
We aspire to regain Hungarian guests.
Keep an eye on our site, programs and events. Help us create the „Artistic Spirit of Budapest”, the spirit of art patronage in the city.
