Here at Corinthia Budapest, one of the oldest and grandest hotels in this exciting city, we are all hoping to see Wes Andersons’s brilliant movie “The Grand Budapest Hotel” win yet more awards in the forthcoming Oscars and BAFTA’s in February.
Now, we want to be part of your story too.
We are also a hotel with a grand history but we recognize that much of that history was written by you. And now, we want to be part of your story. Simply send us your favourite story including a photo of your time spent at Corinthia Budapest over the years and we’ll display it for all to see. If your post gets the most ‘votes’, then you’ll win a fabulous three night stay with breakfast included
I trust you enjoyed the holiday season in peace and tranquility. After a wonderful Christmas and hectic New Year, life certainly does not stop in January! We have new objectives and face new challenges.
Over and above the countless new services introduced last year to enhance the guest experience, we are preparing new things for this year as well. We will be sure to keep you fully informed about all these developments as they happen.
In the wake of the mass of programs offered the festive season we have a range of new and colourful events coming up. Our themed Sunday Brunches continue with topics appropriate to the time of year.
After all the holiday feasting, slightly lighter dishes would not go amiss, so we start the year accordingly. Our spoon & fork Brunch has the focus firmly on soups and pastas.
Following this a truly wintery, skiing mood permeates the Brasserie & Atrium restaurant at the Alpesi Brunch. Here you will find tasty treats, decoration and a program that evokes an Alpine hütte milieu. Later in the month there is the chance to experience the flavours of the Scottish Highlands
accompanied by the skirl of the bagpipes. Finally, we present a fascinating Hungarian folk custom from a UNESCO World Heritage
town: the Mohács Busó festival.
Throughout the month le Bar is serving not only the Royal Cocktail but Dániel’s latest discovery, the Walker sour, which blends the
historical interests of our bar manager and a belief in our corporate values.
Another of our long serving staff is introduced in this month’s edition:
Concierge Zoltán has a never-ending supply of programme offers in and around
Péter from our kitchen shares another excellent recipe, and executive pastry Chef Attila makes sure there is the perfect dessert to accompany it.
I trust that you will enjoy the January edition of our journal and you will find within its pages programs.
