Corinthia Hotel Budapest: A Royal Affair
“Budapest in May is like a city of lilacs. The sweet, languid, rather sleepy smell of lilacs wafting everywhere. And as a city, lovers walking with their arms around each other, embracing and kissing on park benches. A sensuousness very much bound up with the heady ubiquitous smell of lilacs.”
Straddling the Danube, Budapest is widely regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful cities. With its noble architecture, sweeping vistas and lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere, this is a truly inspirational destination and a great venue for a romantic rendezvous. Corinthia Hotel Budapest is within walking distance of several of the city’s most exciting attractions. The finest hotel in the heart of the city, it captures the city’s glamour and romance. Formerly the Grand Hotel Royal, it is now beautifully restored for a new generation of traveller; Corinthia Hotel Budapest is one of the grandest luxury hotels in Budapest. An impressive landmark building with an imposing Neo-classical façade and soaring glass atrium, Corinthia Budapest offers a choice of elegant eateries and destination bars for even the most discerning traveller.
Corinthia Hotel Budapest’s breath-taking, baroque style Grand Ballroom is an ideal in-house venue and can also be converted into the setting of a fairy tale wedding. Its high ceilings, elegant cornicing and sense of living history all add to the opulence and magic of this stunning space. The spacious atrium, its soaring glass roof flooding it with natural light, makes it the perfect backdrop to complement a wedding.
Renowned for its gastronomic prowess at all its six outlets – Brasserie & Atrium Restaurant, Rickshaw Far Eastern Restaurant, Le Bar, Bock Bistro, Szamos Marzipan Royal Café and Orfeum Club – operating under one roof, the Corinthia Hotel Budapest does not limit its culinary artistry to these venues alone.
