We stayed at this beautiful hotel a few years ago and still talk about it now. Our experience here was totally overwhelming. I had booked this hotel for a three night break over my partner's Birthday. Imagine our surprise when on check in we had been selected as 'Guests of the Week' and had been upgraded to a suite!! When I mentioned it was a Birthday Treat they asked when Nik's Birthday was and sent a bottle of champagne to the room on her Birthday. The suite was gorgeous, very Grand with two marble bathrooms a lounge and a bedroom to die for!!! It was situated at the front of the hotel so good for people watching.
It wasn't just the room that overwhelmed us it was the hotel as a whole. Very colonial styling, with very attentive staff that can't do enough for you. The cocktails were lovely in the hotel bar, we had a very memorable evening there whilst listening to a string quartet. The entrance hall to the hotel is extremely Grand and had a very luxurious feel. The breakfasts were amazing too with a very wide variety of choice. You could even have a glass of bubbles if you wanted.
We will definitely be returning to this wonderful extremely memorable hotel.
- 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
