“Wonderful city break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We have just visited Budapest and stayed at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The facilities and accommodation was first class. The breakfast was amazing so much choice and well presented. Well worth a visit the location was ideal for us a little walk into the city but local transport was great with a tram stop right outside. The only disappointment for us was we didn't get to eat in the bistro which was highly recommended to us, if you e-mail or contact the hotel in advance they will book you in.

Room Tip: Don't get a room on the front very busy road outside I would imagine noisy. We had a superior ro...

Let me start by saying - we loved this hotel so much that before we've even checked out I am writing this review and we have looked up other Corinthia Hotels to stay at.

The only downside was the shower. It randomly blasted out hot and cold water - twice it was so hot I got burned and had to leap out of it. I ended up using the bath instead.

I have to admit, I am a bit of a hotel snob. If I am going to have a week of holiday paradise, I want the hotel to be a delight and I was not let down by this place. The spa was lovely and it was wonderful to have the option of a swim after a long day's sightseeing. The room service was excellent quality (the dinner portions are small but the dessert was huge) the day we ordered it and it is in a fantastic location to get everywhere. The Octagon is very close by and a perfect landmark/starting point for any travel.

Room Tip: The AC unit was pretty loud but the view of the interior restaurant was nice.

Dear Mr Fisher & Staff

I would like to thank you all very much for your help in making my husband's 40th Birthday very special. I will be recommeding your hotel to all.

I would like to also say a speical thank you to the front of house staff who helped me with the email requests that i had done before our stay. The room was dressed lovely and the birthday cake was fantastic. The birthday meal we had in the Rickshaw restuarant was great and again and the staff were very attentive.

The breakfast was out of this world and never seen such array of choice with the added touch of Champagne too. The spa and surruonding area was fantastic and the staff were very attentive.

The only one thing i would say about the hotel was that the rooms get a little to warm during the night even with the heating turned off. But that is a very minor issue.

The overall expereince with our stay at your hotel was great and made or first trip to Budapest unforgettable.

Again thank you and look forward to staying again in the near furture

Mr & Mrs Jevon

The Corinthia Budapest:- if you want a centrally located top quality hotel in Budapest, this place won't disappoint. Not actually on the banks of the Danube but only 5 minutes walk from so many tourist 'must-see's. Location aside, the staff are efficient, polite and good at their jobs, the hotel is beautiful and well maintained. the breakfast was insanely good, i couldn't eat at night as i wanted to save myself for the next brekky installment. The Royal Spa is a treat with free access for guests via a private lift.
The best recommendation i can give, is that the staff actually seem to care whether you enjoy your stay and will do what they can to make sure you do. We can't wait to visit again.

Room Tip: only the top end rooms will have any view worth mentioning and if you're a light sleeper, maybe...

Very nice hotel in the centre of Budapest.
Excellent staff, exceptionally yammy food, fresh and tasty. Water in the rooms are very expensive.
I found it very hot in the rooms and I could not adjust airconditioner. I tried all different settings, but it did not cool down air - appear to be the same temperature on every setting.
It's in the centre of the city, very easy to get everywhere. Windows seem to be sound-proof as several nights it was quite noisy at the bottom and I closed the windows and could not hear a lot. People say there is a nice swimming pool, but I have not been there. It also felt a bit dark in the room (i had to change increase exposure on my camera nearly to the limit as it was so dark).

Room Tip: if you do not like to sleep in a hot room, choose the one with outside windows.

Just returned from a short break at the Corinthia Grand Hotel in Budapest. This hotel certainly lives up to its 5 star rating - excellent comfort, service and food in a beautiful city. Highly recommended.

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
