Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal is a five star hotel located by the Grand Boulevard in Budapest, just in the middle between Oktogon and Blaha Lujza Tér. The building was built in 1896 and was for a long time name Royal Hotel before it was renamed to Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal not long ago. The building was for a time during the Second World War used by the Nazis and a cinema was in the building for a long time after the Second World War. The building was totally renovated in 2003 and has since then turned into one of the best hotels in Budapest.
The reality is that Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal is by many categorized as the best five star hotel in Budapest and it is on TripAdvisor’s list of the most luxurious hotels in the world. Considering this the price level is not at all that high, and you can find rooms here costing from 100 Euro, not at all much considering the standard.
Inside the hotel you will be able to enjoy a confectionery, great restaurants (Bock Bistro just outside the main entrance is very good) and guests are free to use the Royal SPA. This is a beautiful SPA inside the walls of the hotel with jacuzzis, a swimming pool, saunas and of course the chance of getting different SPA treatments. Be aware that treatments inside the hotel is much more expensive than if you would leave the hotel to get a treatment at some private SPA saloon elsewhere in the city.
Why we would choose Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal
The building is beautiful, the service is great and it has a giant smell of luxury to it. The Royal SPA is a great place to relax, take a swim or read a good book and if feels good to stay in a hotel ranked high on a list presenting the most luxurious hotels of the world. The hotel is also close to quite some cool ruin pubs in the seventh district of Budapest. The hotel has free WiFi available to its guests
Why we would not choose Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal
If you walk in a nice tempo you will still use 15-20 minutes to get to the very central parts of Budapest where you can find the shopping street Vaci Utca, the Danube and so on. But, in months with a nice temperature (read: Budapest in September) that is no problem at all. If I intend to only use the hotel as a place to sleep, we would rather choose a more central hotel closer to where things are going on.
