Classic luxury meets historical building

The new boutique 5-stars hotel is located in the Józsefváros, an old district on the Pest side.

As the Kozmo Hotel is not located in the tourist zone, it is a short walk to the city center. During this walk you will cross the so called palace district with jaw dropping old mansions and villas, sometimes untouched for 40 years which give them a special appeal. In the city center you arrive to the National Museum and the Kalvin tér.

A bit of history

The emblematic building itself was a technical marvel of its time. It’s worth saying a few words about the function to understand the structure and large spaces of the building.

The building was the largest and most high tech telephone exchange in Budapest and was built between 1913 and 1916, based on the plans of Ray Rezső, who excelled in the design of buildings with iron frame structures. The construction was one of the first large state orders in Hungary at that time.

Using the iron-framed structure almost as an artistic tool, Ray designed a real palace, almost a castle, reminiscent of modern, romantic and neo-baroque style. The József Phone Center was opened in 1917 serving 5,200 telephone users. For its age and functionality, the modern building provided the perfect space for a central telephone exchange.

Welcome to 2020

Now the superbly renovated historical building blends historic elements with great classical modern design.

„The hotel’s alluring design also evokes a sense of home to create a unique guest experience upon arrival. Taking advantage of the distinctive elements offered by the original building, the interior hosts magnificent high ceilings and historical elements including antique frames and crown moldings.”

In the elegantly decorated rooms the design and quality of its materials are the main protagonists.

The stylish rooms are divided into four categories: Standard, Superior, Junior Suite and Deluxe Suite.
