The 7 Best Hotels in Budapest

4th January 2007 // By Zahra Al-Kateb


The Corinthia Hotel, also known by its historic name the Grand Hotel Royal, is located in the heart of Budapest.

This hotel has been beautifully transformed and tenderly restored, retaining the splendor of the original interior and fronted by a breathtaking restored façade with accompanying apartments and a conference center. With its elegant and extensive Royal Spa, gilded ballroom and lavish lobby, it once more takes center stage among elite travelers, not only in this elegant imperial yet thoroughly modern city, but also among royalty throughout Europe.



Why we love it: With 414 spacious rooms and 26 apartments in the adjacent ‘Royal Residence’, the Corinthia Hotel Budapest holds the Royal Suite, an impressive accommodation suited for both leisure and business guests. Elite clientele can enjoy the suite with views over Erzsébet Avenue or the quiet atrium courtyards. It comes complete with king-size bed and is decorated throughout with mahogany. A separate living room, dining room and kitchen plus complimentary usage of the Executive Lounge services make up just some of the perks of this residence. In addition, the hotel offers over 30 other luxurious suites designed with meticulous detail to provide every amenity for the discerning guest along with access to the full range of Executive Club facilities.
