My family spent a long weekend (end October) in the Corinthia and could not fault the experience. My children loved the swimming pool area. Fabulous breakfast, particularly when sitting in the atrium area. Staff were very friendly and helpful

Absolutely outstanding in every way. Spotlessly clean, attentive staff, fabulous breakfast, particularly sitting in the conservatory. EVERY member of that hotel treated us with respect and kindness. Thank you, we truly enjoyed your excellent hospitality. Located in "Buda" the urban part of the city, meant there were plenty of trams and taxis to take you over the River Danube to "Pest" the more scenic side! We spent a wonderful couple of hours walking around the historic buildings on top of the hill, admiring the views. An excellent spot for photographers, and for drinking coffee or vodka!!

This hotel is a reconstruction of the original, but you would never know. They have done a great job in creating this hotel. The service is first class, the rooms are a very reasonable size and very clean. I can't say anything wrong about this hotel. The only other hotel I would have considered in the Gresham. If you are a runner then the Gresham is right on the danube so you have a running trail right out your door. In the case of the Corinthian it is very central to most all sight. I would stay here again.

Compared with the few hotels located on the Danube River, like the aging Marriott, in a tourist only area, this hotel is located in the traditional urban area in Budapest with many restaurant options and easy metro transportation just in front of the hotel.

We had a large room overlooking a beautiful interior courtyard. Don't miss a delicious breakfast at the Szamos pastry and coffee restaurant, or swimming in the incredible pool downstairs, which also functions as a stand-alone spa business. Bock Bistro is OK, but seek out the restaurant Zeller a couple of blocks away a simple restaurant with terrific food.

Rooms facing the smaller secondary courtyard are preferable to those facing the main lobby.

This hotel is very well situated and the accommodation is of a high standard. I particularly enjoyed the tour of the hotel, seeing the area where there are apartments for long-stay guests (they have their own most-attractive roof-top garden) and even the Presidential Suite. The breakfast was top-notch and the service was good.

The only down side was the smell of cigarette smoke from time to time. I think guests were in fact smoking on non-smoking floors.

One hint for anyone who likes to treat themselves with good coffee and delicious cake and/or chocolate. There is a coffee shop off the lower level; the prices are very good and the desserts are wonderful.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Budapest. My wife and I stayed in late Oct early Nov. True 5 star, location perfect, staff friendly. The spa facility is excellent. No need to go on and on. We visited for a long weekend break 4 nights and it was superb. Plenty of bars restaurants sights etc etc in the area. Don't hesitate !!!

Overall the hotel is good. But some things do not allow me to rate it as 5 stars. 1. Rooms need renovation. I cannot say that they are terrible – no. Generally they are OK. But the carpet was dirty in many places, walls were nipped. 2.Some equipment is SPA zone did not work, not enough sunbeds for all the visitors. 3.The breakfast was definitely overpriced (29EUR p.p.). Just to know – café round the corner – 10 EUR, café in 3 min.walk – 5 EUR. New York Café – 20 EUR. Nevertheless the hotel is really nice. The service was perfect, location is very convenient (tram stop in the front, metro station – 3 min.walk, bunk – 15 min walk). SPA zone is not very big but enough to relax – 2 jacuzzi, 1 steam bath, 2 saunas, 15m pool. Very nice decorated. I liked my stay – good value for money.

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
