Stayed at the Corinthia with my two teenage daughters and our stay could not have been more perfect. The reception is stunning and has a real wow factor about it. Our room was beautiful very large (even big enough for an extra bed to fit in comfortably). So much marble in the bathroom !! Huge shower and lots of space in the dressing area for all three of us to get ready at the same time. The staff were so friendly and the tall drop dead gorgeous doorman was lucky not to have been packed in my two daughters cases he was so handsome! We were made welcome from the moment we arrived. The spa is really good although did get busy at the end of the day and needed more beds to relax on as we could never get one in three days. We used the Bistro and the food was excellent. The hotel is in a great location easy to walk everywhere and Budapest is very safe to walk around even late at night. Lots of excellent eateries around at varied prices. All in all a beautiful hotel in a wonderful clean city full of very friendly people - can wait to go back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- First opened in 1896 as the Grand Hotel Royal; a hub for the elite of nineteenth century society, and painstakingly restored to its original glory some hundred years later, the Corinthia Budapest – located in the heart of the city - brings together classic hotel opulence with the finest five-star luxury of modern times. While the gracious frontage, marble floors, sweeping staircase and breathtaking, six-story Atrium preserved from the original building offer glorious hints of a bygone age, the levels of comfort and convenience are all reassuringly up to date.A particular feature is the hotel’s original Royal Spa centre, with 15-metre pool, now extensively refurbished by the current owners to reflect the very best in 21st-century spa luxury while retaining the grandeur of the past. Without doubt the finest hotel in Budapest. Built in classic French Renaissance style, the Grand Royal became a beacon of luxury in the days of Emperor Franz Joseph 1. Designed as a centrepiece of Hungary’s celebrations to mark its first thousand years, the hotel’s grand-style architecture and unrivaled guest facilities were seen as state-of the art for the times. Much of the building was destroyed in the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and despite re-opening in more modest form in the 1960’s, the Grand Royal remained a shadow of its former self until the 1990’s; when new owners Corinthia Hotels gave the green light for an extensive restoration project that would retain the best of the old, while sensitively adding the new. Once restored to its original splendour, the newly named Corinthia Hotel Budapest re-opened its doors, as a five-star luxury property, in 2003. ... more less
