Beautiful hotel, probably the best so far

On arrival we were greeted by marble floor and staircases, it was an adventure just to find the lifts. Our room is perfect complete with separate bath and shower.

Historical Traveler Reviews Corinthia Hotel Budapest
This hotel and city will hold a special place in my heart as my boyfriend proposed on the bridge between Buda and Pest during our stay. However despite this the Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal was fantastic. The architecture, decor and scale o fthe building alone is breathtaking. Sometimes in a 5* hotel the staff can be a little stuffy, not here, they could not do enough for you especially the concierge.
On our first night we ate at the Rickshaw restaurant at the hotel, although a little expensive it was undoubtedly the best chinese meal I have ever had. I cannot reccomend this hotel enough and would urge you to pay the little extra to stay there. The location is ideal for travelling around the city, you will not be dissapointed.
Corinthia Royal excellent
We stayed at the Corinthia Royal in March 2005, were upgraded to an executive room. The service was great, location very good.wonderful city.
Had a great time.
A stunning building, and a great all round hotel. Food in the oriental restaurant was excellent, service throughout hotel was friendly in a city that is not exactly renouned for quality of service.
Only down side was the fact that the window in the room was looking out onto an internal courtyard which is roofed, so there is no way to get fresh air into the room.
We paid about £75 per night for a double room, which was excellent value. Highly recommended.
Excellent Hotel - We loved it!
We stayed for 3 nights (10-12 Feb) and the hotel was fantastic. It is ideally located for all the funky bars in Liszt Square and the metro, has its own incredibly cool champagne lounge attached to the hotel - great Djs and fab cakes - and the service was first rate. We arrived just after midnight and within 5 minutes had been checked in, had a tour of the facilities and had been shown how to operate everything in our well equipped room. Within 10 mins we were drinking superb Hungarian wine and eating paprika crisps. Go for an executive room for a view over the stunning courtyards.
Pick this hotel you won't regret it!
My boyfriend and i stayed at the Corinthia in November and we can't fault the hotel our room was brilliant and we loved the breakfast as there was so much to choose from even champagne we felt like royalty. This hotel is a must stay!
I stayed here for 8 nights from 27 November on their "Escape and Enjoy" package which included an upgrade to Executive room (which included buffet breakfast, a variety of free drinks and food in the Executive Lounge and use of a computer to check emails etc). It's a historic hotel from before 1914 but recently modernised and refurbished to a very high standard. Very nice room and bathroom (with separate bath and proper shower cubicle). Friendly and efficient service. Good convenient location in Pest. My room and many of the other executive rooms overlook the main boulevard - if you are sensitive to street and traffic noise, take earplugs or buy them at a pharmacy but after a couple of nights I didn't find it a problem. The hotel has a number of restaurants and a good bar. The Bock bistro, serving Hungarian food, is very good and the waiters give helpful advice for sampling Hungarian wines by the glass. All in all, a very good experience and I'd happily go back.
Worth the money and very, very nice!
We found this on the internet, and book it there as the price will be better. Tho' they did extend us a few nites at the internet price! This hotel has been restored beautifully and is really a first-class hotel.
There is free internet to use on the second floor, like a business center, but it's the most pleasant place to park yourself after a tiring day of sightseeing. There is a TV there, comfy sofas, and a bar. Take advantage of it! A really nice perk in this hotel.
The coffee place under the atrium downstairs is a very nice place to sit, and the deal there is the lox/cucumber sandwich! Their cappucinos are very good too.
Altho' the hotel is located not in the center of the tourist things, transportation in Budapest is easy. Highly recommend getting the 3-day or 5-day passes or books of subway tickets. And they will check your passes, so be sure to have them!
The hotel is also within walking distance of all those trendy restaurants near the Opera House. We tried several and liked them all.
The best place to get good, inexpensive food, coffee and pastries is the grand market downtown - what a fun place! And don't forget to check out the upstairs for all that touristy stuff. Compare prices, as the vendors are competitive. Downstairs there is a small supermarket where you can pick up bottled water really cheap.
The highlight of Budapest is the Terror House. Don't miss it!
Statue Park is fun too, if you have the time.
Give Budapest a chance. There is really a lot to do and see there and it gets better the longer you stay. We stayed at the Corinthia Grand for 5 nites and really enjoyed the luxury.
Didn't meet my expectations
I stayed at this hotel for two nights from 13th October 2004 until 15th October 2004. I was hugely disappointed.
The standard of cleanliness was no better than a 3* hotel. The bathroom floor was sticky and with hairs (not mine!). The bed linen was not immaculate either. When I complained, the staff said they would contact housekeeping. Several hours later, I contacted the front desk again, enquiring as to why no action had been taken. They told me that housekeeping would be there at 6 o'clock in the morning! Now, am I being unreasonable? I was on holiday. Why would I want to arrange an appointment to accommodate housekeeping, especially after having such a long day? Anyhow, I couldn't sleep due to the level of cleanliness. I tried to check into a 3* as I thought, what would be the difference, except in price and space but unfortunately there was no availability at where I wanted to move to.
I had hoped that the room would be cleaner the next day but alas, another sleepless night. A courtesy call was made but all I got was an apathetic apology.
On checkout, the staff were unfriendly and uncaring.
This was the first time I had stayed in a 5* hotel and I was completely unimpressed. I payed a premium for a large room and a tip for the concierge to carry one small hand luggage style bag! Not happy.
If your standards are high like mine, do not expect too much from this hotel. If you have children or are easily disgusted like me, be careful about them scanning the tv channels. I had a terrible shock when I saw some questionable content at 6 o'clock in the morning. It was not very nice. Apologies if that is your cup of tea but I did not appreciate my viewing being violated.
I did try a couple of treatments at the hotel's beauty salon, which I thought were very good. They didn't speak much English but the treatments were relaxing, especially after two sleepless nights. Oh, the tram stop was nearby and the room was spacious... That's about the only good things I can say about this hotel experience.
Loved it, loved it, loved it
We spent 3 nights at The Corinthia Grand Royal and loved it. The room, the service, the breakfast and all the staff were faultless. The hotel is in an ideal location surrounded by shops and restaurants. The tram runs past the door and the metro is a 2 minute walk away. The river and the chain bridge are within walking distance or 3 stops on the Metro. We have stayed at The Bellagio in Vegas and The King Edward in Toronto and would rate the Royal just as highly. We loved the city, the food and the Hotel and are looking forward to our next visit.
Greatly renovated - superb atmosphere
The Corinthia Grand Hotel hast just newly opened and is located in an old building that has just been renovated. Features 2 very nice internal courtyards. Room size is fine and interior is mediterranean style. Service was very nice and friendly, except for staff at breakfast which were slow and not to keen to render their services.
Overall a very nice place, about 10-15 min walks to city center of Pest. Paid EUR 140 incl. breakfast for a double room which seems to be a O.K. price. Also staid at the Kempinski, but preferred this hotel.
Would stay there again and recommend to friends.

We headed off early to Budapest today, stopping at the capital of Slovakia for lunch, Bratislava. It was a long drive today and we arrived in Budapest at 5.30pm. We are staying at the Corinthia Hotel which is absolutely amazing. Tonight we went on a cruise on the Danube for dinner. The buildings looked gorgeous illuminated by the up lights. After …
Left Venice at 6.30am by water taxi €120 as it was the only way we could get to the airport in time for our flight. They do have a water bus but it takes 2 hours and we couldn't do it, so water taxi in 30 mins was the way to go.
Checked in quickly, had my glass cheese fork confiscated because I had it in my hand luggage. There was no …
We had a great 4 days in Ljubljana. We confirmed our idea that we prefer the smaller cities in Europe. Ljubljana is full of life, interesting architecture, is in a pretty setting, and within an hour or two of stunning scenery. Buildings and bridges here were designed by the same architect who designed the Prague castle and many buildings in Prague …
... some of the guys came over and got in line as well! All up it was about 10 people and by the end my hands were getting quite sore. However I guess it was good as otherwise my hands will be pretty deconditioned when I return to work. After the baths, Rob and Drew had organised a group beer bike, where you sit on either side of a table and pedal while having a beer and a chat. It sounds great, and it definitely didn't disappoint! There were 12 volunteers for the bike, and about 60 ...
Oct 2 - an early walk to the main market - reminded me of the market hall in Istanbul! Really big and lovely - the main floor veggies/fruit- and lots of paprkia which most of us want to buy - some tourist items not a lot - some bakery items including a 'treat' for Hungarian children a cottage cheese type log covered in chocolate - haven't eaten mine yet -- buy 2 Hungarian apples!! The top floor is for eating and buying handcrafted items - some beautiful hollow easter eggs - how ...
