Corinthia Hotels marked the 10th anniversary since the reopening of its Corinthia Hotel Budapest in Hungary with a gala dinner hosted by Corinthia Group Chairman and Founder Alfred Pisani in the hotel’s magnificent ballroom. Guests of honor for the evening were the deputy mayor of Budapest Balazs Szeneczey and Malta’s minister for tourism Karmenu Vella. Also present was Malta’s ambassador to Austria Colin Scicluna. As part of the anniversary celebrations, the hotel also inaugurated a permanent exhibition in the hotel’s grand lobby, featuring key elements from the hotel’s 113-year-old history.

Welcoming his distinguished guests Chairman Alfred Pisani said: “I speak with a sense of awe at the history of this wonderful property. It is a landmark with deep roots in this city and I am pleased that Corinthia managed to breathe a soul back into it.”

The hotel originally opened as the “Grand Hotel Royal” in 1896 to commemorate the Hungarian Millennium. The legendary building has had a chequered history, culminating in a superb renovation and restoration project conducted by Corinthia Hotels ten years ago.

Launching the exhibition, Hotel General Manager Thomas M. Fischer said: “This exhibition is a suitable memorial to the unique building’s multi-faceted history. It offers an interesting insight not only for our hotel guests, but for all the people of Budapest, who continue to be inspired by this grand building and who are undoubtedly pleased that it has been restored to its former glory by Corinthia.”
The permanent exhibition was compiled by the Hungarian Museum of Trade and Tourism, partly through its own resources, as also from other documents and artefacts donated by former and current employees of the hotel, and which can now be admired by the hotel’s guests, as also the general public.
