“Top Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

This hotel has a very impressive interior. They allowed us to check in early and have access to the room. The room was large, clean and quiet with a separate sitting area. The spa facilities are very good and during the course of the evening there were some very talented musicians playing in the bar (including playing Waltzing Matilda on the violin). Breakfast was not included in the very reasonable room rate and seemed a little expensive by local rates but the are several alternatives nearby. This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in and is thoroughly recommended. We moved here from another hotel which features higher in the tripadvisor list but this one is far superior.

Amazing how we were pampered during our whole stay. This is one of those places where they don't settle for having the 5 stars on their doorway. Instead, they make every effort to make you feel as welcome, confortable and well-treated as possible.

We were working here at a conference and stayed on an extra couple of days before leaving for the next one in Prague. The beautiful old building is full of style and charm, and the bedrooms are very large for a city hotel. The pool is probably the best I have seen outside of resort hotels and is incredible for a city centre. Its located in a more of a busines and residential area than the downtown area of the other bigger hotels, but the tram stops right outside and the Metro station is a block away, so its very easy to get just about anywhere. However there is a square just across the road with lots of restaurants of varing qualities and the Bock restaurant next door is fantastic (if you can get a table!). Although we have been to Budapest many times we took the tram for the first time and it was lovely to see all the buildings that you otherwise dont see when you are underground - and the system is very simple - its easy to get over to Buda from the hotel too - just a £1 ticket which you buy in the hotel shop. This hotel manages to appeal to both business and tourists at the same time, without compromising either - not an easy thing to do. I think a lot is to do with current and previous management - the staff all have a very good attitude and you really do feel welcome. Some business / conference hotels almost treat tourists like something they have stood in - equally most hotels that cater mainly for tourists dont have the understanding of the staff to be able to cater for business needs, but this hotel does both and extremely well and I was delighted to see the same lovely chap in the restaurant who looked after me so well on previous visits, and was still there quietly doing an excellent job. All in all we look forward to returning and hope we have another reason to return to the Corinthia again soon.

Room Tip: Its a very large hotel, but the layout means you dont feel you are in a huge building as there are t...

This is a lovely old-fashioned hotel totally refurbished by the Wyndham chain. Granted our room was a long way from the elevator but was totally spacious and comfortable.
The included breakfast buffet was also filled with lots of good items.
The location is ideal for Franz Liszt Square where there are numerous outdoor cafes and close to the Opera House as well as Alexandra's bookstore.

We stayed in the apartments which are part of the Corinthia Hotel. It was very spacious for 3 adults I would highly recommend it as an option if you prefer the additional flexibility. At the same time we were able to appreciate all the many services the hotel provided. The Sunday Brunch is amazing with so much fabulous choice and high quality service which ensured my glass of sparkle was always topped up. I would say this is a must even if you are not staying in the hotel.

The concierge were so helpful for recommendations and making bookings throughout our 3 night stay. The baths in the hotel are lovely and a real treat, my only slight complaint was the size of the gym (a little on the small size). Walking in and around the Corinthia you get a real feel for the luxury and elegance of the hotel. I can't wait to go back!

We found the hotel through TripAdvisor--It was rated #3 and lived up to the rating. We upgraded to the Business Level which was a smart thing to do--the service was outstanding--the complimentary cocktails, wines and snacks on the Mezzanine Level virtually 24 hours a day was an unexpected surprise/outstanding value--We had a drink at the Four Seasons Grisham Palace and quite honestly, the interior of the hotel on the first level was disappointing and lacked the ambience and charm of the Hotel Corintia. The location of the Grisham Palace may be better (it is--overlooking the Danube, Budda) and in close proximity to the other luxury hotels, but getting over to the Danube area is a relatively short walk down the Andrassy Avenue and an opportunity to see more of Budapest. My prior 2 times in Budapest I stayed at the Intercontintental---better location-- but you can't compare the hotels in terms of charm, elegance and savoie faire..

Thanks to a very good rpomotion, we could get a room in this hotel. Corinthia is a cute, old building next to one of the main street of Budapest. 20 min. walk to the Danube, and near to the Andrasy avenue. Our room was spacious, lovely and HUGE breakfast included in the price. But the best was the spa:-), it was almost empty when we went there, and spent an unforgatable hour with my girlfriend. The staff at the concierge was friendly, Bence spent us at least 30 minutes to explain where to go and what to do. Thanks to his recommendation we went to the Castle, where was a local food program, called Goose Liver Festival. We had a salty cake baked with goose liver inside...fantastic! Also, he sent us on the first day when we arrived to a restaurant nearby, called Chess. Out of the 3 restaurant we tried this one was the top. Many thanks to Corinthia again, was a fantastic stay!

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
