News from the hotel industry

In the heart of Budapest the former Palace Hotel, a splendid “art nouveau” building, was re-opened under the name Novotel Budapest Centrum****. It has 227 air conditioned and sound proof rooms furnished with the latest Novotel design. Next to a 300m² conference room with the adjoining and equally large foyer it has two other function rooms, all equipped with the latest technology.

At the end of 2002 the former Grand Hotel Royal*****, a potent symbol of history, culture and architecture re-opened its doors in all its splendor, operated by Corinthia Hotels International.

This unique building, being restored sensitively and with large investment by some of the world’s finest craftsmen and designers, re-establishes the one-time glamour of the Grand Boulevard. While respecting the heritage of the Royal, the reconstruction introduces facilities appropriate to the highest standards of contemporary hospitality.

Some facts and data:
  • Accommodation: 414 luxurious guest rooms
  • Dining and entertainment: Lobby Lounge, Le Bar, The Royal Café and Conditorei, Rickshaw Restaurant and Sushi Bar, Brasserie Royale and Terrace, the Bistro Royal
  • Conference and Exhibition Center: the Grand Ballroom with flexible spaces accommodates 2.200 guests on more than 2.600m²; the Exhibition Hall with 740m² can accommodate up to 650 guests. Altogether it has 30 meeting rooms and more than 2.900m² of conference space.

No doubt, this property is currently the best in Budapest! A special crack for the meeting industry!

Budapest highlights

Among the European Waterways the Danube is beyond any doubt the most attractive. The river is a „multi-functional” asset of the Hungarian capital. In the past 16 years Blaguss-Volánbusz International organized a large variety of programs aboard. From small luxury vessels to large banquet boats Blaguss-Volánbusz caters up to 1.000 people on one boat. The river has seen conferences, stand up receptions, gala dinners, „water music” concerts, lavish balls, pleasure sailings and a lot more programs.

The waterfront with its illuminated monuments offers the most magnificent view rarely found in old Europe.

Wouldn’t it be the perfect team building activity to sail down on canoes or on a galley (a genuine copy of an ancient Roman boat) from Szentendre to Budapest?
