My first trip to Budapest was an unbelievable and most lovely event made possible by staying in this most beautiful hotel Corinthia
The morning breakfast is something I had never seen before in any hotel. So lovely with do many foods to choose from and it all was very good.

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor and a long walk to room from the lift, but we needed the walk anyway. Not...

Had a few days to chill out and decided to come to Budapest . The hotel is fantastic from check in to the rooms and the size of them.
We paid a little extra for the executive package so had access to the lounge with drinks and snacks available inclusive.
The facilities in the hotel were brilliant the gym and pool area again exceeded my expectations.
The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to attractions and at least 4 ruin bars that I went to.
The staff are attentive and friendly helping us out when needed.
I will certainly return to the hotel again for a break as now feeling well rested after my 3 days here.

Room Tip: Remember to visit the terrace bar on the 4th floor which isn't well advertised. It is worth payi...

It is hard to describe this hotel with any other word than 'WOW"!!! Truly amazing hotel built a very long time ago that clearly survived 2 World Wars with pit marks still on the building to prove it. Truly 1st class hotel with 5 star service located in the city center within walking distance of everything. So many eateries, cultural and shopping things to do around this hotel. It is the only place to stay in Budapest.
A word of caution I really felt needed to be inserted here. This entire area around all the tourist spots is filled with beautiful women of the night. They lure men into expensive bars and run up a tab that you would not believe. Then they disappear and you get stuck with this bill that is unreal in prices. Easy to avoid! Ignore them and keep moving. They are everywhere and if you are alone, they will try to lure you. Not dangerous; just expensive. And you will pay no matter what.

First trip to Budapest, this hotel is located nicely in the heart of the city. The staffs were nice and warm, made my stay well and memorable.
The World Cup bar on the terrace was fun, we had a great fun and the ambiance was good. Hope to go back and stay at the same hotel on my next visit to Budapest.

Good hotel, very old, but charmy. We had just an overnight there with lost luggage, butlers were helpful, but just enough helpful, no extras to help with. Baggage has been delivered at midnight and wasn't deliver to the room. We were so upset, waiting for it, asked for delivery twice at anytime, but received it upon checking-out occasionally (!)
Location. Far away of everything if you are a tourist.

Stayed at the corinthia for 5nights, it was our first time in Budapest and what a beautiful place. We were amazed by all the beautiful architecture and the Hungarian people are just so friendly and lovely. The hotel is in a very central location, it is stunning, the spa is brilliant, I truly cannot fault this place. Yes it's a little on the steep side but for that once in a blue moon treat it's perfect!! We never actually ate in the hotel mainly because we were out and about most evenings exploring so grab a bite wherever we found ourselves!! But the menu sounded great, and there's loads of restaurants to choose from within 2-3mins walk. Come visit Budapest you won't be dissappointed and come stay in the Corinthia for the same reason!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Corinthia. The view from the entrance is incredible and better than we could have imagined. Our room was clean and of a good size. The bathroom is lined with marble and exceeded expectation. The only let down was there was no coffee machine as described when we booked so we had to fumble with a kettle for some instant coffee (sharing 1 sachet between two as one was missing). A bottle of free mineral water would also have been welcomed rather than paying over £3. Also the window looked into the hotel so we couldn't see outside which would have been nice. Spa was excellent although water was a bit cold in the pool for swimming but nice for a quick dip. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Overall an excellent hotel and good value for money. There is a nearby metro and the tram stops outside but most places are within walking distance.

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
