“Good value hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at the very grand looking Corinthia for four nights in an Executive King Room. The hotel was very pleasant and the staff were all helpful. As part of the Executive club package you have access to complimentary drinks (including beer, wine and spirits) and snacks all day in the Executive lounge which was a really nice touch but meant we didn't want to go out for Dinner- so be warned, if you are planning on going out, keep away from the Exec Lounge!

The room was a good size but was very hot, and noisy because we were overlooking the road. It is probably worth requesting a room overlooking the atrium.

Breakfast in the main restaurant offered a much larger selection than in the lounge but was obviously busier so if you want peace go to the lounge, if you want choice go to the restaurant.

The spa was also very nice with a decent sized pool, 2 jacuzzis, 2 saunas and a steam room as well as a fitness room.

We didn't eat in the restaurants but one of them, the Bock Bistro is recommended as one of the top restaurants in Budapest. The hotel is well located, about 15 mins walk from the Belvaros region of the city and the same to the City Park, but only 5 mins from a selection of bars and restaurants. There is a tram stop right outside and easy access to buses and other tram lines 5 mins away.

I would agree with the reviewer that said this hotel lacked some of the things that you would expect from a 5* and would probably put it more as a 4* + but would recommend it all the same.

We've stayed at one of the apartments of the Corinthia hotel and it was EXCELLENT!!!
First of all the apartment was HUGE, comfy, smelled great, VERY clean, excellent beds (we slept like kings), the T.V. set is a 'smart T.V.' updated with software according to the hotel specification, I was impressed and satisfied. From the doorman to the reception and the entire hotel crew, everyone were SUPER helpful, very kind and fast to help with anything we needed.
The food was great at the hotel but we dined outside most of the time to get a sense of something more authentic (or to try and convince ourselves it was more authentic outside ;))...
The apartment had a very modern kitchen, everything was spotless clean and we've used it a little but if you come with a family you can also depend on their kitchen without a problem, its fully accessorized.
Guys, my next trip to budapest is again in this hotel definitly!!!
MANY THANKS TO THE CORINTHIA HOTEL CREW!!! THUMBS UP

We had a 2 night stay at the Corinthia hotel - it was faultless, room was great with huge bed! Concierge (free service) was very useful and went out of her way to help. SPA was incredible (though we didnt have any treatments as a little over priced compared to elsewhere). Absolutely lovely staff and would definitely visit again!!

My husband and I came here for a long weekend break to visit Budapest and its Christmas markets. From the moment we arrived we were treated beautifully by the warm and helpful staff.

We chose the hotel as part of a British Airways package and considering the quality of the hotel it was surprisingly good value for money (in the luxury category).

Our room was large and well planned out & the bed was comfortable. The spa in the basement is world class and pool, jacuzzis, gym, sauna & steam rooms are free for guests to use. I had a volcanic stone massage which was on special offer which was bliss.

We were also delighted to discover one of Budapest's best restaurants is in the ground floor of the hotel and had a lovely meal there.

Coming here at Christmas is very special as the hotel is decorated beautifully, with a beautiful huge Christmas tree and gigantic bauble decorations hanging from the ceiling.

Also the location of the hotel is perfect, so easy for transport links to the river & to Buda and the best sites, shops, restaurants and bars of Pest are in walking distance.

The only thing that could be improved in our opinion is the tv channels, the English selection could be greater

Oh and don't let the breakfast service run out of sour cherries

Overall a fantastic place, atmospherically it beats Gresham palace too. I think this hotel deserves the no. 1 spot

The Corinthia Hotel in Budapest is probably one of the best 5 star accommodation in the city. Centrally located for the trams, underground, sightseeing, xmas markets, shopping and the spa baths dotted around the city.

Staff were friendly, only downfall was that the twin rooms although state are superior they are small, we were not advised that there were specific floors for smokers and we were put on the 6th floor which was one of them.

For a 5 star there was a distinct lack of those finer things in the rooms such as milk and a greater selection for hot drinks, ice had to be rung to room service for, costs of drinks in mini bar were extortionate. There was also an executive lounge, although upon arrival not obviously elite enough to be offered this for additional cost.

All in worth the money as it cost 65.00 per night for 2 of us and that's good value for money.

It is a really good hotel with an execelllent breakfast buffet, but again very expensive (€ 25). Nice rooms and good service. Very friendly staff. It was really a 5 star hotel. The only thing is, it is a bit far out of the places to see.

Thank you very much for having taken the time to post your review on Trip Advisor.
I am pleased to read that you had a great stay with us.
For your information we are the closest 5 star hotel to the Opera House and to Heroes Square and the City Park. We are also close to the shops and restaurants in the city and we are just a short walk to the city centre and the Danube river. The area - where the Hotel located - is at the heart of the city and it is safe, just like in other big European capitals.
Thank you for the kind words about our services. I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to Corinthia in the future.

arrived at the hotel ,staff where nice and nothing was a problem to staff ,got to my room on the first nt a very bad smell from toilet area ,after going down to speak to front desk management told me it was not the kind of thing that should happen to a guest at a 5star hotel and they would move us as soon as it suited us , its easy to run a well oiled shipwhen all is going well its how you treat guests when things go wrong that make you feel like the hotel and its staff ( 5 STAR )

Room Tip: executive upgrade well worth it

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
