The New York Palace is a luxury hotel on the Grand Boulevard of Budapest's Erzsébet körút part, under Erzsébet körút 9–11, in the 7th district of Budapest, Hungary.

Part of The Dedica Anthology and previously known as Boscolo Budapest from 2006 to 2017, the building was constructed in 1894 by the New York Life Insurance Company as a local head office. It was designed by architect Alajos Hauszmann, along with Flóris Korb and Kálmán Giergl. The building opened on October 23, 1894. The famous New York Café (Hungarian: New York Kávéház) the ground floor has been a longtime center for Hungarian literature and poetry. The statues and other ornaments on the facade of the building, as well as the café's 16 imposing devilish fauns, are the works of Károly Senyei.[1][2]

The building was nationalized during the communist era. The Second World War devastated great part of the Buildings of Budapest: in 1957 the Hungarian sculptors Sándor Boldogfai Farkas, Ödön Metky and János Sóváry carved replicas in the New York Café of the damaged allegorical sculptures of Thrift and Wealth, America and Hungary. After the collapse of communism, the structure was bought by the Italian Boscolo Hotels chain in February 2001. The building was totally renovated and reopened on May 5, 2006 as a 107-room luxury hotel, with the Café, also totally renovated, on its ground floor. [3][4][5][6] It is set to be renamed Anantara New York Palace Budapest Hotel in late 2021.[7]
