5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

Beautiful hotel. Great service. Very nice spa. The only negative was that it was a little farther from downtown and the river than we would have liked. Close to slightly seedier areas. But still, you can walk to the river in 20 minutes, 15 min to downtown.

Room Tip: We had an interior room. not much to look at but extremely quiet.

This hotel is what a five-star hotel should be and all at a price far superior to others in Budapest. The room was large and luxurious. Bath included shower and tub and marble everywhere. In fact the only thing I would change about the room is the marble floor in the shower. It was a bit slippery. If you are there on a Tuesday or Thursday, be certain to sign up for the behind the scenes tour of the hotel. The history of the building is impressive. The general manager began at the hotel providing room service in 1961. We chose the package without breakfast. There is a wonderful coffee shop on premises which is a good choice for a light start to the day. The conceirge staff was very helpful with everyday needs.

The best 5 stars we know ... Our youngest daughter made her first steps in the hall :-) Very very friendly staff. They gave her a teddy bear "Bisounours" and she takes it every time we stay at this hotel. Beds are wonderful ! We bought the same "literie" for home ... Very clear also and breakfeast fantastic.

Whilst sightseeing in Budapest which is a beautiful city, especially the old section I had the privilege of being able to stay at the Corinthia Hotel which is on Grand Boulevard. The guest rooms are very large and spotlessly clean.
When you first walk in to the lobby it takes your breath away as it is massive and very grand but inviting.
They have a delicious buffet-style breakfast with everything from porridge, yoghurts, eggs, slices of cold fish, smokes salmon, different cheeses, ham, salads, breads and croissants so there is plenty to accommodate all tastes.
You can pay extra to upgrade to a comfortable executive room which allows you unlimited snacks and drinks throughout the day on the mezzanine floor which also includes champagne.
If you want to visit the old town it is a very interesting 20 minute walk but well worth it.
The staff were always pleasant and willing to help in any way possible.
I cannot wait to go back to Budapest and stay at this wonderful hote.

Room Tip: I would say all rooms would be ideal for a traveller who likes comfort whilst away enjoying themselv...

We stayed for a wonderful 5 days last month for our honeymoon. My husband had kindly booked us a car from the airport which was prompt and airconditioned. On arrival to the hotel it seemed my husband had booked and paid for an upgrade which was lovely so we had separate check in and access to the Exec lounge. We had a room that was a little bigger than usual. The staff (particularly the dark haired lady) on the exec lounge reception were not particularly friendly, quite frosty at times. All the other staff we spoke with including the Spa staff were lovely.
My slight disappointment other than the frosty exec lounge staff is that on reading reviews i see that lots of people were upgraded and given suites and extras however this was our honey moon and my husband paid for all we received when lots of guests were upgraded at no cost.

The spa was lovely, we had massages from Georghie and Sylvia (spellings sorry) and are highly recommended.

Overall a lovely time on our honeymoon.
thank you
N. Simpson

Room Tip: we had a room overlooking an atrium that wasnt used for eating etc. Very quiet. Room 2221 (i think)

the service here is truly 5 star. we are currently staying and had some problems with our room. i asked to speak to the manager who was lovely and showed the quality of the hotel. He upgraded us to a suite but this did not work for us as we needed twin beds, so looked at other options for making stay more comfortable. very impressed as the sign of a good hotel is how well problems are dealt with. Will definitely return. one comment is would expect hotel to have a bottlenof complementary mineral water free for each guest.

This hotel is quite lovely. The hotel itself is gorgeous, the staff helpful, our room was great (we were upgraded, which was an unexpected treat!), it is air conditioned (essential with temperatures of 37 degrees in Budapest during our stay), the breakfast was excellent and it is well located. It also has parking for guests (although you have to pay for it). Overall, we couldn't fault it. Highly recommended!

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
