“Excellent hotel in good location with fantastic spa”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

The best thing about this hotel was the spa- really beautiful swimming pool area and we had a great time here. The hotel itself was very beautiful with lovely rooms which were clean and well presented and a good size. We have recommended it to a friend who is staying this winter!
The breakfast was nice with quite a lot of choice.
The staff were average not particularly special but not bad.
Found it quite easy to navigate around and seemed well placed to go to attractions.
I would not book with Travel Republic again as found them very unhelpful when our flight was cancelled but would go to this hotel again if visiting Budapest- personally I found it too cold in December and was not overwhelmed by the Christmas markets so would like to try it in summer sometime.
Overall lovely hotel!

We travelled on a 'deal' which included an upgrade to the executive club but even without that this hotel was superb. Very well equipped spa area, and breakfast served in an expansive dining room. Our room was medium sized and comfortable. We were able to walk to the places of interest (or use the small underground system). We will visit again.

This is a first class hotel, brilliant from start to finish. Ideally located with great facilities and the most helpful staff ever.
The spa has been refurbished and now up to date and modern whilst retaining an old world grand style.
If you can, include breakfast - an outstanding start to the day with something for every taste

Go if you can

I stayed in Corinthia Budapest for a few nights. As you would expect from a five star hotel, the rooms are comfortable and clean. I couldn't say that the service is generally bad as the bell hop and the gentlemen at the door were always ready with a smile and offer to help. I also found the waiting staff in the Brasserie to be excellent. What let the hotel down is the general lack of warmth in the place. The staff in the reception and concierge in particular could do with more hospitality training. Service was never bad but it was perfunctory and unenthusiastic - something you do not expect from a five star hotel. . For a hotel with 400 rooms, it was odd that only two people were staffing the reception counter. So, queues were long and so was the wait for check-in check-out. As for the Spa, it was good to look at but all thoughts of using it was abandoned when the smell of chlorine overpowers all other senses. I guess, you can be assured that the place is well sterilized. Just that, with so many options of beautiful thermal spa in Budapest, it is a shame to settle for chlorine. Good points. The Brasserie provided great service and top quality food but it is only open a few days a week! The Bock Bistro was also excellent but you could go to both without staying at the hotel. Will I come back to this Hotel again? Most likely not as it is still very much a five star hotel wannabe. I stayed in an apartment overlooking the Chain Bridge for half the cost and 4 times the value.

Thank you for your honest feedback. Your comments are valuable for us and highlight the areas where we need to focus on in order to gain an excellent guest experience. I was sorry to learn that your stay on this occasion fell short of your expectations.
Please be assured that your comments have been reviewed with the Front Office and the Spa team and expected service behaviours have been reinforced.
We expect our staff to handle all situations with the utmost courtesy, sympathy and helpfulness and we deeply regret the adverse impression you have gained on this occasion.

I do hope that you will look upon this breakdown in service as a one off and not indicative of the customer care we wish to provide at all times.

Thank you for taking the time to bring this matter to our attention as guest feedback is invaluable to our efforts to continually improve the quality of our services. I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to Corinthia in the future.

Best regards,

This may be the nicest hotel we have stayed at in Europe. Quite simply it has grace and style and the staff complement the hotel beautifully.

Truly a wonderful experience and being in cold Budapest in December is magical.

Room Tip: I would stay in any room !

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
