The hotel has beautiful public areas including the reception and breakfast room. The lesiure centre is small for a hotel with 414 rooms and was often crowded. The rooms are not of a 5 star standard for Western Europe but may well be 5 star standard for Eastern Europe.

The hotel was full to capacity on our first night, and we were allocated a room which was well below the standard expected of any 5 star. We asked to be moved that night but could not be and were moved the next day. The second room was substantially better though not 5 star standard.

We were on a breakfast inclusive basis and the breakfast range and quality of items is excellent. The hotel is a little from the centre - 15 minutes walk, but as with all of Budapest it is well serviced by public transport so this really wasn't a problem.

Overall, we were lucky to get this hotel for less than €100 per night including breakfast and this represented excellent value for this hotel

This is what a five-star hotel is suppossed to be. The look of the hotel is classic but has all the modern conveniences you would expect. The pool and spa are wonderful and the staff were very friendly. Bellman, doorstaff and front desk staff were all attentive and friendly. Tamas and his staff at the Concierge Desk were first-rate. Every employee I came in contact with, spoke very good English.
The hotel is clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend this hotel at any price.

Corinthia Grand has an add-on section behind the hotel, across a side street but connected to the hotel by a walkway, made up of apartments, called the Royal Residences. We stayed in one of the two-bedroom, two bathroom apartments, and it worked out quite well. Very reasonable in price. Much more space than crowding into a single room, and less expensive than paying for two connecting rooms. Apartment had a small kitchen. Furniture is not what I would call lavish, but more than adequate. Full access to all hotel facilities, including a decent fitness room (which I used every day), spa, and restaurants (none of which we used, so I can't comment on those).

Hotel and especially concierge staff very courteous and helpful.

Free wireless internet, but very erratic reception in apartments.

An absolutely beautiful hotel. The staff were also very friendly and provided a very good service. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included and was delicious. Easy access to the city centre with tram, bus or metro or even walking. This hotel was incredible value for money. I would highly recommend it and would definitely stay there again on the next visit to Budapest. Next time will use the Spa!

We were celebrating our 10th Anniversary in Hungary and my husband had organised an overnight stay at the Corinthia at Budapest. It definitely deserves its 5 star rating both in its appearance and the staff who work there. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them. The check in was swift and efficient via the Executive check in and our room was fantastic decked out in dark elegant wood and gold/red trimmings. The marble floors and fantastic staircase were stunning. I had seen a picture of the spa in the basement and I thought it woud have been bigger in real lfe ,never the less it was still amazing. Whilst we were in Budaest we decided to book dinner at floating resaurant on the Danube called "Spoon". The hotel concierge swiftly made a reservation and it was amazng. This hotel is highly recommended for the "wow" factor.

Spent an amazing 7 days at this gorgeous hotel. The architecture, the ambience, the staff, and the breakfast are all outstanding. Although located on a busy road, if you secure an atruim facing room, you will be delighted to stay in this 5 star hotel. The location is great, near the interior design shops, a nice walk to the river, and close to the Fashion District and St Stephens Basillica, where you can have lovely coffee at the California Coffee Shop. I would highly recommend this hotel and would return next week.

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
