This hotel is exactly as it says on its website - it is luxury everywhere in the hotel. We had an executive room but did not pay for the executive club benefits as personally did not feel it was worth this as we didn't want breakfast.
The only criticism and it was a very small point - is that there was not enough plug sockets as they were all already used for lights etc so putting the kettle on we had to take one out under a desk and put the kettle on the floor - a small point but a little annoying.
A tip - if you don't want housekeeping just walking in your room after one knock then put the do not disturb on your door as we found they do just walk in.
The location was great - tram outside the door and just a few stops to lots of places - very cheap 80p for a single ticket.
The room was superb and nothing was too much trouble for anyone in the hotel - first class experience!
- 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
