Corinthia Budapest ushers in festive season with life-sized gingerbread houses and giant baubles in the lobby, gourmet dishes laced with Christmas, and a show-stopping New Year’s Eve Gala
The festive season sees Budapest’s grande dame Corinthia Hotel, originally opened as the Grand Hotel Royal in 1896, transform into a welcoming festive abode for its guests, with grandiose decorations and sparkling lights embellished around the hotel. A life-sized gingerbread house, overflowed with Christmas delights and unique gifts, fills the lobby with the scent of creamy chocolate, cinnamon and cloves, and a Christmas tree stands proudly at the top of the lobby’s magnificent staircase – the perfect backdrop for this year’s round of festive photos.
The restaurants and bars have geared up too, offering mulled wine, a dedicated bread pudding station at breakfast, and a series of festive menus. The Royal Ballroom will also be host to the city’s most glamorous New Year’s Eve party, featuring a six-course gala dinner and an exclusive show night.
