We stayed for 3 nights in this absolutely beautiful hotel. It was a real pleasure I must say. This building is full of history, and I cannot fault the excellent staff. We decided to upgrade to the executive package as for 35 Euros as opposed to 29 Euros for the breakfast, you get so much more -my only gripe is that we were told that the package would include cocktails, when in fact it doesn't. You can however drink champagne, wine and spirits with mixers. The snacks are changed regularly, and I thought they were pretty good. The breakfast was excellent. I would also recommend Bocks Bistro where our lovely waiter recommended catfish liver-sounds horrendous but was in fact delicious. In Budapest, we visited and would recommend the Szevnezy baths-a must see, and also the Hungarian State Opera is an experience not to be missed. So much to see, and then to return to our stunning hotel. I definitely intend to return, and I would strongly recommend this hotel
- 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
