“The Absolute Best”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

The absolute best hotel I have ever stayed at. The location is great near Octogon. A short walk from Andrassi street (utca) The building is a restored turn of the previous century Palace. The spa and pool is gorgeous. The best of all is the service, unmatched anywhere.
Food and wine exceptional. Get executive room with finest lounge with fresh soups, duck salads, wines, cheeses deserts all day.
I lost goggles at the pool and they returned them.

For a five-star hotel we expected much more. Service is just ok. It is not a quiet hotel which for us is a big issue. We could hear tv and people talking in the room next door. The maid also wouldn't stop slamming doors while cleaning close rooms. In 10 minutes she slammed the doors approx 15 times. The do not disturb tag only served for her not to enter the room. On our third night there we stepped out of the room in our pijamas to request some silence. Also the room is dated, the bathroom walls were stained and the shower could not keep the water hot for more than five minutes. Freezing water would come from time to time and we needed to vê prepares to step out. There are some good points dor the hotel such as the restaurants, free wi-fi and spa and a nice coffee shop but in my next trip to Budapest I would stay somewhere else.

First of all, I would like to thank you for taking the time and thought to share your opinion on TripAdvisor. It was disappointing to learn that the standard of the room you received did not meet your expectations on this occasion. I am also extremely sorry that your stay in our hotel was not to your full satisfaction and that you obviously were unable to experience the first class and friendly service Corinthia Hotel Budapest is renowned for. Please accept my sincere apologies for the disturbance caused by one of our Housekeeping team members. I can assure you that your comments have been reviewed with the team and expected service behaviour has been reinforced. I do hope that you will look upon this glitch in service as a one-off and not indicative of the high standards of customer care we strive to provide at all times.
On the other hand, I am happy to read that you were satisfied with our restaurants, the complimentary wi-fi service and the facilities of our majestic Royal Spa.
I trust that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to Corinthia in the future.
Kind regards

Stayed here at the end of March for my 40th.

The hotel is absolutely stunning, its immaculate, the staff are amazing and couldn't be nicer or more willing to help even with simple things like directions or where to get the travel tickets etc.

Got ourselves a car from the Airport to the hotel, and the driver gave us some great tips on where to go outside of the accepted "tourist books" type areas

The restaurant and the breakfast are a touch on the expensive side, but it is a 5 star so expected, and you really cant fault the quality, portions, choice or service

Location wise its fine, its not "central" as such, but theres a tram stop outside and its a 5 minute walk underground. Cant fault the location like others - its a city centre hotel, so I dont mind if there are businesses or shops nearby !

I actually cant find anything bad to say about it - If I return to Budapest (which I probably will as didnt see everything I wanted to see !) then I dont think I would stay anywhere else !

Room Tip: Have the breakfast at least once !! Use the gym / pool / sauna - ideal after a day walking

My husband and i thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Physically beautiful, outstanding service, fantastic spa and pool, and a great breakfast buffet that starts your day off perfectly, all contributed to a wonderful time in Budapest. The Corinthia is perfectly situated as well. We highly enjoyed our time,

Recently stayed at this hotel, and, overall, it was a pleasant experience.

What I loved most is that the dining rooms are indoors, but because of the large walls of light, they feel like they are outdoors.

The room was comfortable, with two twin beds (which was a bit of a disappointment). I think this also made the room a little small, so when you put in two large suitcases, and opened the ironing board, it was hard to manoeuvre around (but I think we received the smallest room). Also, the interior decorations and high-end design of the room and bathroom are lovely. The bathroom has both a shower and a bath, for those who want to choose.

In terms of location, it is about a 20-25 minute walk to parliament and the Danube River, but the hotel is close to many little restaurants.

All our meals were served at the hotel, and I'm not sure if we received the standard food, or if the food was set by the company's budget, but overall it was a bit disappointing. You had to arrive early otherwise there would be no food and we were required to eat leftovers (i.e., no salads, just diced celery and carrot...). Also, the taste of the food was okay, but not good.

The hotel is also much bigger than it looks from the outside because it is relatively narrow, but built very long. It was great for our company's conference because it had a large hall where over 600 people were able to fit, and it also had smaller sized room to accommodate different sized groups.

Lastly, the front desk service was very helpful and friendly during checkout, especially in accommodating final requests and helping find lost items. The kitchen staff was also great in always being around to help pour water, wine, or coffee (even special orders) both during mealtimes and throughout the event.

The Corinthia in Budapest is stunning and well situated near Andrassy and shopping. The service was fantastic and quick and the food was excellent as well. We had some issues with water temperature in the shower but other than that, great service, great ambiance.

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
