Corinthia Hotel Budapest
One of the most historic hotels in Budapest (and that's saying a lot for a city that has gorgeous old buildings everywhere you turn) the luxurious Corinthia Hotel Budapest has a long and storied past. It first opened as The Grand Hotel Royal back in 1896 and featured 350 rooms as well as restaurants, private dining salons, and even a supermarket and a bank. It was here that the first film was ever screened in Budapest. Throughout the 20th century it opened and closed a few times, due to tragedies such as war and fire, reopening in 2004 in its most recent incarnation: Corinthia Hotel Budapest. Travelers who really want to learn about the hotel's history can take one of two weekly tours with manager Tibor Meskál, who has worked on and off at the property since 1961.

Though the original interiors have long been demolished, the property nevertheless retains a regal atmosphere, with elegant interior details such as high molded ceilings in the Grand Ballroom, a stunning marble lobby with an intricate patterned floor, and spectacular leisure facilities including a courtyard-style indoor swimming pool topped by a stained-glass ceiling.
