Corinthia Hotel Budapest

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for 4 nights at Corinthia Budapest and loved it every second.
The building is really beautiful. Every time when we walked into the lobby we enjoyed the view of this big space. With the gingerbread house and Christmas tree it looked very joyful and even cosy. The room (executive) was spacious and clean, with soft beds and a practical bathroom with shower and bath. Our room looked over the atrium, nice and quiet.

Everything looks very luxurious and we really loved the executive format. All day long you can drink and snack in the lounge. Tea, coffee, soft drinks, wine or other alcoholic drinks, all to take. Even soup, what was really nice in wintertime.

The 'royal spa' is also very beautiful. With the elevator from your floor to the entrance, very convenient. The spa is spacious and it wasn't crowded at all in the evening.

We enjoyed breakfast a lot. In the executive lounge you have plenty of choice and downstairs even more! Fresh products, some of them bio, what we can appreciate. We also had dinner at the Ricksaw restaurant with asian fusion food. Nice flavours and dishes, slightly oversalted for our taste. But very tasty.

The neighborhood is not the prettiest in Budapest, but tram stops in front of the hotel and metro is just a few minutes walking. The walking time to the tourist center is about 15 minutes. In the neighborhood you can find many good restaurants.
One night we went to a 20's show at the adjacent hotels club Orpheum with live show and a great ambiance.

The only negative note for us was the temperature in the hotel, and in our room. It was very warm everywhere. They can put the heating on or the cooling on. It was not very comfortable at night, but luckily we slept well. The (always friendly) staff are aware of the problem but it is not very easy to solve apparently.

We can only recommend this wonderful 5 stars hotel. It is very big, but we never had the expression is was crowded or noisy. The professional staff tried to make our stay perfect. From the check-in not until the check-out, but even until we left the hotel. When we come back in Budapest, it will definitely be here again.

What a fantastic hotel. We received a very warm welcome and were delighted to find a bottle of champagne and strawberries in our room to celebrate our recent engagement- a lovely touch. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and the spa was fantastic, the room was beautifully clean and spacious too. The ONLY grievance I have was that we had to pay for water in the room, and it was difficult to control the temperature. We didn't have a chance to sample the hotel restaurants as we visited the trip advisor recommendations for restaurants in budapest, however if we were to return i'd love to try the breakfast.

We stayed in Corinthia Hotel Budapest in December 2013 for 4 nights. The Hotel was very beautifull amd high standard. Location was perfect and spa was excellent! Most of the personel were friendly and helpfull.
The big thing that was very unconfortabe was the room temperature... Because the window opened to the courtyard, you couldnt get any fresh air to the room. And the temperature in the room was very hot, even when you took the heating off! Sleeping wasent very pleasant because of that.
And why does the hotel charge for extra for the services we didint use (about 100 euros for 4 nights)? Example for taxi services? And the breakfast was very expensive.
But all in all we enjoyed our stay very much, thank you!

Coming back to this hotel every night was the best part of our holiday in Budapest.

We wanted a Christmas holiday in Hungary and this grand hotel truly delivered with its full size gingerbread house and two story Christmas tree in the lobby. Everything in the hotel from the spa to the patisserie was held to an impeccable standard and additions like the magazine of local hotspots in the room made our stay perfect.

The hotel truly set itself apart when we had the delight of taking a full tour with the senior duty manager ‘Tibor Meskal’. We learnt that the Royal Hotel Corinthia has been a major part of the history in Budapest with periods of occupation by the German and Russian armies and the Hungarian revolution. Despite this hardship this grand hotel has managed to retain its incredible architecture.

Mr Meskal and his passionate first-hand experience of the history of the grand hotel truly sets the Corinthia as the finest hotel in Budapest with him as the heart.

Room Tip: Rooms at the sides of the hotel have internal facing windows and look down to the central lobby. The...

We were on a pre extension for a Vantage river cruise and stayed at the Corinthia Hotel for two nights. The hotel is very large with wings in many buildings strung together very tastefully. It caters to many tour groups, which is not a bother, as it is so spacious. The hotel is very impressive both outside and inside. The room was very comfortable with a large bathroom with shower and separate tub. The room was very quiet, as it overlooked a quiet courtyard. The common area is large and spacious with areas in different places for talks and lounging. The breakfast was vast and delicious with everything imaginable to eat. The hotel is within walking distance of good restaurants and many sites in Budapest.

We stayed here last year's new year's eve and weren't disappointed. The Corinthia offers all a luxury hotel has to offer. Our room was huge, also the bathroom with shower and additional bath tub. The beds were so comfortable, you could sleep the whole day. I also loved the spa with the wonderful Art Nouveau swimming pool. Only a short distance to walk from town center and easy to reach with the tram. Only negative point is that breakfast wasn't included in our rooms price and very expensive. We ate at the café that belongs to the hotel and it was delicious but not cheap.

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
