Corinthia Hotel Budapest
Ranked #15 of 334 Hotels in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 July 2014

The Corinthia exceeded our expectations in every way. The hotel is every bit the 5 stars that it is awarded, the staff could not be more helpful and courteous, and the location is perfectly placed for a city break.

Having booked an executive room we were taken immediately from the normal check in desks to the executive lounge, with our luggage managed by the hotel. The best description of the executive lounge and indeed the service wrapped around the booking is that it feels equivalent to travelling business class with a high end airline. You have all day access to the executive lounge where you can eat and drink at anytime without charge, and you are waited upon attentively. This was superb for us, as a coffee and spot of lunch was more than enough after a great breakfast. The service doesnt stop when you check out, and you are free to use the lounge until you leave the hotel to get your flight... Very useful!

The hotel certainly has the wow factor in the reception area, and continued to deliver throughout.

The rooms are large, well appointed, clean, and have everything you could need... Including your own coffee machine. The bathroom has bath and seperate shower.. and spotless. The TV had many english speaking channels, although there is so much to see that our time in the room was only to sleep. The hotel is quiet and we had no disturbances, and after a day of walking the hotel spa is top quality for a sauna or jacuzzi.. And it is well kept and spotlessly clean. Wifi is free everywhere, and decent speed.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, and hope to stay here again. I would recommend the Big Bus as a means of seeing everything Buda and Pest have to offer, as there is a good deal to see, and it is is quite spread out. You can get on and off at your leisure over 48 hours and a river cruise is included. It was about £20, and worth every penny.

We ate in two Bistro style restaurants, Zeller and Ket Szerecsen. Both were excellent with Zeller offering a family feel and food to die for.

One word of warning.. Which is nothing to do with the hotel. The yellow taxi drivers at the airport are likely to overcharge you. The journey from the airport to the hotel is about 18km, and takes about 25 minutes in traffic. The price should be no more than 5000 florints (£12). I recommend agreeing the price before taking the taxi as fixing the meter is common place, and you can be charged three times this amount.

My partner took me here as a surprise in April for my 40th...you wouldn't believe it looking at me! lol.
The hotel is located centrally in the city and is positioned ideally. This is the kind of hotel I like ; Antiquated externally but updated to todays standards internally ; impeccable service, beautifully furnished rooms.
We stayed in the executive lounge and received the additional benefits of exec lounge, afternoon snacks and drinks.
I loved this city so much and I am very glad she selected the Corinthia for me. The spa was wonderful and very relaxing, so much so that we both fell asleep in the rest room, floating on a peaceful serene cloud.. until some unsuffarable, bungling oafs came in crashing and shouting and snapping us out of our bliss!
I did not dine at the hotels restaurants but outside. That was purely a personal reference.
I work in the travel industry (20 years) and can only applaud the staff and the management for a truly special atmosphere and environment.
Well done Corinthia. . .

Room Tip: The executive offer is a no brainer

We stayed there for three nights and can really recomend this hotel! We had booked an executive room, with access to the lounge which offered breakfast and a light meal in the evening. We chose to have breakfast "downstairs", since the selection was bigger, offering all you can wish for (including champagne:-) Staff is very serviceminded and friendly. The room was quiet and clean, and the SPA was small but nice. Even so, beeing in Budapest, I will recomend checking out other SPA's in the city as well. I don't see how I can stay anywhere else if/when retuning to Budapest

I recently completed a 3 night stay with my girlfriend for a surprise long weekend birthday present. From the moment of our arrival the stay was faultless, having booked an executive room we were welcomed at the private check in with a glass of champagne and had all the information we required for our stay provided. Offered the opportunity to have a snack while bags were taken to the room and was generally very surprise at how friendly all the staff were. The team recommended great restaurants and activities to do during the day including HOPON HOPOFF bus tour - well worth the money and great to ensure you don't miss the town. The hotel was great through our whole stay, the spa was beautiful and have to add a special mention to the brasserie restaurant which is picture perfect and the food just as good, wasn't too expensive and was worth the money. Great stay would recommended to anyone.

Room Tip: Get in the exec lounge well worth it.

We booked the Corinthia Royal Residence for a three day party and we loved it so much we decided to spend 16 more days in the Hotel. The facilities are beautiful, clean and comfortable. The service is superb! The staff is amazing! You ask for something small and they go beyond your expectations to please you. We are a retired couple, we love to travel and we always aim to stay somewhere real nice. We also had our 19 year old grand daughter with us and because she is such a wonderful girl, we like to pamper her. The Corinthia Hotel was the perfect place for us.
We loved the spa, the entertainment at the Orfium Club and the Bistro next door. I highly recommend it to anyone for business or pleasure. We will be back on our 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
