Corinthia Hotel Budapest

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 June 2014

A classy hotel with some great original features from when part of it was a theatre. Staff very friendly, food good, bed comfortable, location good. Fine exterior and three different buildings on either side of the original have been welded into one superstructure. Facilities generally good.

My company were working on a conference being hosted in the Corinthia ballroom. My crew and I enjoyed the Corinthia and it's facilities over 3 days.
Rooms were clean, contemporary in decor and spacious. Bedding was excellent. My only criticism was the LCD tvs were a little small for such spacious rooms. The hotel is very big and it felt like quite a walk between lifts and rooms. There are many lifts so I suggest having a good look around to get your bearings. Once you know your best route to things it doesn't seem such a vast building.
I was seeking a location to film some interviews and was given a tour of the hotel by the manager. He was a real gent and gave me some history of the hotel while we explored.
Pool and gym facilities were superb, the swimming pool in particular. One of our cameramen often found himself the only person in the pool and was really taken with the grandeur of it.
Food was excellent. As always the breakfast buffet is what most people want to know about. The selection was superb with all sorts of continental options through to hot typical "fry up" fare but with a continental twist. My only comment would be that the pancakes were not made to order. This makes no sense to me. It's such a quick and easy thing to do and makes a huge difference to the quality. The pre made pancakes that were kept on a hot plate were dry and disappointing.
The hotel is brilliantly located within the city although sadly we didn't get much of a chance to explore.

Would definitely return when next in Pest.

Room Tip: Rooms either look out onto the internal atriums or to open air. Personally I want to be able to open...

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.

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
