“I feel privileged to be entrusted with the management of one of the finest award-winning hotels in Europe.

The Corinthia Hotel Budapest is an award-winning member of the Corinthia Hotels brand. The hotel originally opened as the Grand Hotel Royale in 1896 and was entirely renovated and, in parts, rebuilt, in 2003, following its acquisition by Corinthia Hotels. Among its many attributes, the hotel features a majestic grand ballroom and the ‘Royal Spa’ – itself an extensive renovation of an original 19th century Spa adjoining the original hotel that has once again regained its rightful place as Budapest’s most luxurious Spa.
