Corinthia Hotel Budapest
Ranked #15 of 334 Hotels in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 13, 2013

With pre-extension in Budapest before embarking on a Viking Danube River Cruise, we stayed at the Corinthia for 2 nights. What a welcome venue after a VERY long day of travel (Los Angeles, through Heathrow, then to Budapest). We(my sisters, brothers-in-law and I) were "delivered" to the hotel, finding doormen in full regalia. Our bags were waiting in the hall by our rooms.

We entered the lobby which was stunning and grand with dazzling chandeliers and grand staircase. There were smaller nooks off the main hall for sitting, having drinks, and one night even listening to a live quartet.

The room elegant, the bed very comfy, and the bathroom was spacious and modern.

A generous buffet breakfast (hot stations, cold cheeses and meats, bread and rolls, yogurt, juice and coffee, etc.) was included with the room, and we took advantage, starting the day with a hearty meal as we would be on foot wandering around Budapest.

Hotel staff helped us select restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel.

we choose this hotel as we were looking fr something special for our honeymoon and we were so glad we did.

We we arrived at went to check-in where we were shown to the executive lounge. We were greeted there with a lovely glass of bubbles and were told there was a surprise for us in store. As it was our honeymoon we were upgraded to the Deluxe Suite. Check-in we were shown around the executive lounge and then to our room where a bottle of bubbly and some strawberries were waiting for us. A very nice touch by an excellent hotel.

Throughout our stay we used the royal spa which is beautiful. We had a lovely couples Swedish massage which was excellent. One of the best I have ever had.

All the staff that we came across were extremely friendly and helpful and would recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

We will defiantly be returning soon.

Thank you to all the staff who made our honeymoon so special.

What a wonder this hotel is. Amazing facade and entrance. The staff are polite and professional. Every inch of this hotel is beautiful and amazing. The walk to our room was a spectacle itself. Once in our comfortable and well appointed room, we opened our windows onto the atrium to be serenaded by violins playing below. What magic. Located in a great part of the city, close to transport, sights and some great eateries. The pool area downstairs is a must. Bring your swimmers and indulge.

This hotel was an amazing surprise for us. Elegant exterior and lobby, nicely appointed rooms and first class service from beginning to end. We extended our stay! It is central and within walking distance to amazing restaurants, the Opera House, St. Stephan's Basilica and the market, Vaci Street, the Holocaust Memorial Centre and the Metro stations (underground train). We were able to walk everywhere from this location. We only required a rental car to areas outside of the city limits. I would highly recommend this hotel and stay here again!

The old Royal hotel maintains a regal feel! Perhaps because we came off-season, we got a good rate on a lovely standard king room. Of course, once at the hotel, other costs trend high. The breakfast buffet is lavish but at 29 Euro per person, it's pricey--again, excellent food but can one person eat $40 worth of breakfast? But the on-site food is excellent, including at the Brasserie and Rickshaw. The next-door Bock Bistro is simply stellar. Many other restaurants are nearby too (and are more affordable). The hotel is lavish in decor, the room was large and lovely and very clean (though the carpeting is showing some years of wear). The room was also nicely soundproof! The location is also nearly perfect: a tram stop is right across the street, the Oktogan area is just a couple blocks away, and one can walk to the Danube in a fairly short time. Our experience was nicely deluxe!

My family spent a long weekend (end October) in the Corinthia and could not fault the experience. My children loved the swimming pool area. Fabulous breakfast, particularly when sitting in the atrium area. Staff were very friendly and helpful

Absolutely outstanding in every way. Spotlessly clean, attentive staff, fabulous breakfast, particularly sitting in the conservatory. EVERY member of that hotel treated us with respect and kindness. Thank you, we truly enjoyed your excellent hospitality. Located in "Buda" the urban part of the city, meant there were plenty of trams and taxis to take you over the River Danube to "Pest" the more scenic side! We spent a wonderful couple of hours walking around the historic buildings on top of the hill, admiring the views. An excellent spot for photographers, and for drinking coffee or vodka!!

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
