Corinthia Hotel Budapest
First opened in 1896 as the Grand Hotel Royal, Corinthia Hotel Budapest remains one of the grandest hotels in the city. This impressive landmark, with an imposing Neo-classical façade and soaring six-story glass atrium, was meticulously renovated in 2003 following its acquisition by Corinthia Hotels. It houses 439 luxurious rooms, including 31 suites and 26 apartments. Through its architecture and interior design, the hotel offers glimpses of a bygone age, and the building’s rich history seamlessly blends with state-of-the-art facilities and modern technology. The hotel’s original 19th-century Spa has been restored to reflect its former grandeur, while simultaneously offering ESPA’s cutting-edge treatments and technologies. Corinthia Budapest boasts the largest conference facilities of any of Hungary’s five-star hotels. From authentic Far Eastern cuisine at the Rickshaw Restaurant, to traditional sweet Hungarian cakes and pastries, or a delicate selection of delicious Spanish tapas, every palate is catered for at the hotel’s four elegant eateries and two destination bars.
