“Fabulous! Darling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

Totally impressed with this hotel, 5* it is and 5* is what you get. We had a Superior room which is there standard room and is was fabulous, nice and big with a great bathroom. The breakfast is woth its money, with a large variety of options to choose from, too much to mention.

The location is great between the Danube and local attractions.

The spa area is deffinately worth visiting, pool is a good size and relaxing.

The service was very good ad we were ade to feel very welcome. The only downside to this hotel was the room temperature being too warm on the lowest setting but not unbearable.

I would recommend this hotel to all, couples, families and for business.

Booked online - absolutely superb. We had two nights in an outstanding room. Used the Spa facilities which were amongst the best experienced. Great value at £110 per night.
Strongly recommended.

This has been my favourite hotel in Budapest so far. The rooms are really lovely with a nice seating area and coffee table. The spa is superb, perfect way to relax after a long day at the office. The facilities at this hotel are truly fantastic. The food is also excellent though I'm not crazy about the breakfast. Anything to improve?? Perhaps friendliness!

A Truly splendid stay.... The live music by the restaurant down stairs lets you relax and enjoy. other Restaurants at the hotel serve food to taste and appreciate. Smart and beautiful decor. Close to Bars and restaurants near by. And overall a pleasant experience catered by good courteous staff.

The Corrinthia Hotel is a fab choice for a stay in Budapest. It's comfortable with lovely surroundings and in one of the most attractive buildings in the city. The staff are very attentive and friendly and always happy to help. There are a number of bars and restaurants which are top quality. While the hotel is not in the best area, it's within 10-15 minutes walk of the main tourist areas.

The spa is beautiful and is free for hotel guests. The swimming pool, jacuzzis, steam rooms, rest areas, water beds, experience shower, sauna etc. are all complimentary and are beautifully kept.

I recommend this hotel. Yes, it's not cheap, but it's worth it.

Just arrived back after a 3 night stay in this wonderful hotel. They go out of their way before you arrive to make sure your stay is tailored appropriately. We arranged a taxi (both ways) , champagne on arrival and a birthday cake. All went perfectly and cake and champagne delivered within 15 minutes or so of us arriving, giving us time to unwind and unpack a little. My other half swears it was the best cake she'd ever had.....may be an exaggeration....maybe not, but it was good!

An additional little extra that went a long way, was that we were upgraded to a complimentary deluxe suite which was fantastic. I would suspect February is one of the quietest times of the year but a good gesture all the same. I would also like to add that the cost of the initial room booked was a special offer and significantly less than I would expect to pay for a hotel of this quality.

We did not take the breakfast option as we wanted to go out into the city as much as possible and sample what we could. The main drawback to that theory is the fact that the Royal spa, within the hotel, is fantastic and we spent a minimum of an hour in there each day! Still there are places to eat and we found a place nearby with a great choice for breakfast and others reasonably priced nearby, though on our last night we took the opportunity of a dinner cruise down the Danube with a company called Legenda (great experience - very good food).

The hotel entrance is stunning, with the rest of the hotel fabulous to look at and we found the staff very helpful at all times, giving us a very enjoyable break in a very relaxing atmosphere.

Budapest is a beautiful city and I can't imagine staying in another hotel when we visit again. We briefly dropped into the Hilton (in Buda), Inter Continental, Marriott and Boscolo but we left with the feeling that we had definitely made the right choice.

Room Tip: Make use of the Spa! What we saw of the club looked good and as others have suggested may be worth...

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
