“Superb Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Very nice hotel. Well located. You have plenty of restaurants around for diner. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Don't miss the pool which is fantastic.
The restaurant room is also impressive with a big patio.

We stayed in this hotel for a few nights in March. The hotel itself is huge, with a grand lobby and communal areas.

Our room was very large with a comfy bed and separate seating area with sofa and table. It was clean and pleasant.

My main issues with the room was that it was internal so faced the inwards towards the restaurant which a) meant there was noise from below a lot of the time and b) there was no natural breeze from the window (this wouldn't have been an issue had the air conditioning been cool enough, which it wasn't). I was particularly sensitive to this being pregnant and appreciative of cooler air.

We had dinner in the restaurant one evening and it was nice.

Whilst a good hotel I don't quite think it warrants its 5* but its a good 4*. Would recommend.

Just returned from a four nights stay at the Corinthia Budapest. Had booked a Junior Suite but, on arrival, was upgraded to an amazing Signature Suite. Booking a suite is well worth it taking into account access to the Executive Club is included in the price.

Beautiful hotel, superb staff, good central location. The swimming pool and spa are both spectacular.

All in all a very enjoyable experience.

Was booked into the Corintha Hotel by Uniworld river cruises as part of our post cruise extension for two nights. Location is right in the heart of the city, perfect for exploring. First impressions upon entering were outstanding! Beautiful common areas. White marble everywhere. Definitely first class look, very high end, bellmen and doormen in crisp uniforms, front desk staff professional but cold. Room was very nice however had a few minor appearance problems. Wall paper was peeling off at the seams throughout the room, giving one the impression that it had been put up in haste. Bed was some kind of platform bed with a cheap thin mattress covered up by bedding and dust ruffles. Not very comfortable and definitely not what one would expect in a 5 star hotel. Lighting in the room was a bit confusing at first and had one recessed light that shone brightly on you which made reading difficult. Bathroom was very large with separate shower and tub. Great shower and shower amenities, though the shower head could not be moved. Towels definitely sub par. They need to upgrade them to newer, thicker towels. Same goes for the terry cloth robes. Ones in our room were frayed and uncomfortable. Need to be replaced as well. Bathrooom floor had stains or gave the appearance of not being cleaned as well. Utilized their concierge desk for dinner reservations and car service. Staff was professional and spot on, great table at one of the finest restaurants in Budapest, Kundels. I know I'm being rather picky but they are marketing themselves as a luxury 5 star hotel and these little things need to be upgraded. That being said, it was a very enjoyable stay. I would definitely come back.

Room Tip: inspect the room upon arrival, before unpacking. Check the wallpaper and the bathroom floor and the...

The hotel was amazing, best were we have ever been. Room was very clean, nice and big enough for two people. Hotel staff were helpful and gentle. Lot of different kind of restaurants. Luxury spa was very nice. Location was good and with public transport you can easily look whole Buda and Pest -areas.

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
