“Very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2009

We stayed here for our honeymoon and got a fantastic deal on it, and managed to upgrade to an executive room which was big. The staff are friendly, rooms are big, comfy, interior's beautiful. We were very happy staying here after staying at some cheaper hotels around Europe. The swimming pool and spa were great, a must try for all. The breakfast buffet is good too!

Hotel was beautiful with excellent service. Brilliant value for money. Hotel is about 15 minutes walk from Danube, but still central enough to get around city and trams stop right outside, although we did not use them. Definitely worth a visit.

We spent three nights at this beautiful hotel in August and were lucky to be upgraded to a superior room at no charge on check in. We were also given free use of the spa, which we found to be so relaxing and quiet. A little oasis.
The hotel staff were courteous, very friendly and well presented. All spoke english. The breakfast (included in the price) was excellent and there were many choices. The dining room is very elegant and spacious with plenty of seating room.
The hotel is in a good location, withing easy walking distance to most tourist attractions. The Corinthia Grand was our favourite hotel of our 6 week European holiday.

I stayed there for four days during a conference. Unfortunately, the weather was a rainy 5-7C outside during the day and colder during the night with NO heating on in the rooms and the aircon NOT producing any warm air.
In the bathroom, normally you hava fans extracting the humid air, here you had cold air blowing on your head while standing in the shower.
Several colleagues had the same problem (there were extra woolen blankets in the closet, thank god) and reception apologized that the heating system would take a few days to come up fully.

Breakfast was included in the conference room rate, at the 28 EUR they normally charge I would consider it extremely overpriced. I have seen better range of selection at 4 and even 3 star properties.

Room was comfortable with twin beds, small desk, armchair and table. WiFi was available in parts of the public areas (spotty coverage) and rooms had ethernet cable for no-fuss connectivity.
Bathroom was marble with glass shower (not completely sealed, so tended to flood the area in front of the toilet) and bathtub. Bathrobes and slippers provided, very classy.

The spa area in the basement was very nice in terms of decoration, but smaller than one might have expected form the photos (pool length maybe 10-12m). 2 small saunas, one small steam bath (bathing clothes compulsery) on hot pool. Not quite enough room in the rest areas if it gets full. Great to wind down for an hour between conference and dinner, direct elevator from all floors.

Very beautifull venue, helpfull staff and excellent buffet breakfast. Rooms are huge, well furnished and calm. The only con, the spa seems to be small in comparaison with the hotel capacity.

My wife and I attended a conference here in early November. From the moment we arrived the the time we checked out, we enjoyed absolutely every minute of our esperience. The building itself is a magnificent old style property that has been beautifully restored to its former elegance. Every member of the staff we encountered was wonderfully professional and also extremely polite and friendly (not something I can say about the Hungarian people in general....). I know that we will re-visit Budapest in the future - and I know also that we will not stay anywhere except in the Corinthia

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
