There are so many reasons to visit Budapest this year. With its long and colourful history, Hungary’s capital is a must-visit destination for architecture and art lovers. The city’s stunning architecture features grand masterpieces from the Baroque, neoclassical and Art Nouveau periods.
The city is divided by River Danube in two very distinct areas: Buda and Pest. The Buda area is perfect for a daytime stroll along its medieval streets, featuring fantastic museums, Roman ruins and caves. On the other side of the river, Pest offers its visitors beautiful riverside promenades, coffee shops, flea markets, vintage bookstores and antique shops.
Located in the heart of the city, just a few minutes walk from the nearest metro station and merely an 8-minute walk from the city’s impressive Andrassy Avenue, the Corinthia Hotel is one of the best in town and centrally located, ideal to explore the city from.
Corinthia Hotel Budapest was first opened in 1896 as the Grand Hotel Royal, which was back then known as a popular meeting point for the city’s elite. The building has since been perfectly restored in a neoclassical style, allowing its visitors to enjoy the same impressive luxury the city’s crème-de-la-crème once did. It doesn’t get much more elegant than walking into a naturally lit lobby with creamy marble floors and a centerpiece staircase that leads up to a majestic ballroom.
There are a total of 400 rooms and 98 suites in the hotel, including the Presidental suite that will surely leave you breathless. Each of the rooms is lavishly decorated, echoing the original French elegance and featuring a queen or twin beds, furniture made from classical dark wood, and a luxurious Italian-style marble bathroom.
One of the most impressive facilities at Corinthia Hotel Budapest is the Spa Royale, which was in fact included in the hotel’s original style, built in 1886-88. The original steam bath spa was fully renovated in 1983 and transformed into a gorgeous spa decorated with Corinthian columns, offering a wide range of massages and treatments, saunas, tubs, a steam room and a complimentary juice bar.
