Corinthia Hotel Budapest
Ranked #16 of 334 Hotels in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Stayed here at the end of March for my 40th.

The hotel is absolutely stunning, its immaculate, the staff are amazing and couldn't be nicer or more willing to help even with simple things like directions or where to get the travel tickets etc.

Got ourselves a car from the Airport to the hotel, and the driver gave us some great tips on where to go outside of the accepted "tourist books" type areas

The restaurant and the breakfast are a touch on the expensive side, but it is a 5 star so expected, and you really cant fault the quality, portions, choice or service

Location wise its fine, its not "central" as such, but theres a tram stop outside and its a 5 minute walk underground. Cant fault the location like others - its a city centre hotel, so I dont mind if there are businesses or shops nearby !

I actually cant find anything bad to say about it - If I return to Budapest (which I probably will as didnt see everything I wanted to see !) then I dont think I would stay anywhere else !

Room Tip: Have the breakfast at least once !! Use the gym / pool / sauna - ideal after a day walking

My husband and i thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Physically beautiful, outstanding service, fantastic spa and pool, and a great breakfast buffet that starts your day off perfectly, all contributed to a wonderful time in Budapest. The Corinthia is perfectly situated as well. We highly enjoyed our time,

Recently stayed at this hotel, and, overall, it was a pleasant experience.

What I loved most is that the dining rooms are indoors, but because of the large walls of light, they feel like they are outdoors.

The room was comfortable, with two twin beds (which was a bit of a disappointment). I think this also made the room a little small, so when you put in two large suitcases, and opened the ironing board, it was hard to manoeuvre around (but I think we received the smallest room). Also, the interior decorations and high-end design of the room and bathroom are lovely. The bathroom has both a shower and a bath, for those who want to choose.

In terms of location, it is about a 20-25 minute walk to parliament and the Danube River, but the hotel is close to many little restaurants.

All our meals were served at the hotel, and I'm not sure if we received the standard food, or if the food was set by the company's budget, but overall it was a bit disappointing. You had to arrive early otherwise there would be no food and we were required to eat leftovers (i.e., no salads, just diced celery and carrot...). Also, the taste of the food was okay, but not good.

The hotel is also much bigger than it looks from the outside because it is relatively narrow, but built very long. It was great for our company's conference because it had a large hall where over 600 people were able to fit, and it also had smaller sized room to accommodate different sized groups.

Lastly, the front desk service was very helpful and friendly during checkout, especially in accommodating final requests and helping find lost items. The kitchen staff was also great in always being around to help pour water, wine, or coffee (even special orders) both during mealtimes and throughout the event.

The Corinthia in Budapest is stunning and well situated near Andrassy and shopping. The service was fantastic and quick and the food was excellent as well. We had some issues with water temperature in the shower but other than that, great service, great ambiance.

Lovely hotel. Fabulous breakfasts and food generally. Swimming pool is a good size for a relaxing swim and the spa attendants are very attentive and helpful - in fact all the staff look after their guests very well. Only downside was that we found the hotel was trying to charge us over £5 for each small bottle of water we used - bottles left out innocently next to TV in rooms. In a hotel of this calibre you expect a free small bottle of water per person so I complained - and luckily all's well that ends well as the charges were deducted. You have been warned.

My family and I stayed here for 4 nights over easter and it was by far the nicest hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The staff also added to the lovely atmosphere of the hotel, not snooty or one rude member of staff. Everyone was so helpful and friendly.
The room was beautiful, clean and came back to find an easter cake had been put into our room! So adorable.
The spa is also one of the nicest spas I have ever been to and the treatments are done to a very high standard.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and honestly believe that anyone giving bad reviews on this hotel are complete drama queens or just had an unfortunate experience which happens from time to time.
Lovely experience, will be back!

Thank you to everyone at the Corinthia in Budapest

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
