Contemporary art comes to Corinthia Hotel Budapest

Corinthia Hotel Budapest, the grand dame hotel in the city, has opened an art gallery on the ground floor. The Gallery Grand Boulevard will showcase Hungarian and regional artists on a rotating basis.

Currently, the Gallery is staging an exhibition of fashion designer and graphic artist Zita Borszeki’s work. From August 4th, it is the turn of Uzbek-born abstract artist Valera Iskhakov, and from September 1, works from Hungarian painter Andrelli Andrelli will be on show (all pictured).

From October 6, the art of Transylvanian painter Tibor Fazakas-Kosta will be exhibited, and from November 10, the gallery will be turned over to Arpad Muller, the Hungarian painter and graphic artist.

The exhibitions in the Gallery are curated by the Artel Galeria in Budapest which specializes in contemporary Hungarian art.

The Gallery replaces the space used for a souvenir shop in the hotel.

First opened in 1896 as the Grand Hotel Royal, Corinthia Hotel Budapest remains one of the grandest hotels in the city. This impressive landmark, with an imposing Neo-classical façade and soaring six-story glass atrium, was meticulously renovated in 2003, following its acquisition by Corinthia Hotels. It houses 438 luxurious rooms, including 31 suites and 26 apartments. Through its architecture and interior design, the hotel offers glimpses of a bygone age, and the building’s rich history seamlessly blends with state-of-the-art facilities and modern technology. The hotel’s original nineteenth-century Spa has been restored to reflect its former grandeur, while simultaneously offering ESPA’s cutting-edge treatments and technologies. Corinthia Budapest boasts the largest conference facilities of any of Hungary’s luxury hotels. From authentic Far Eastern cuisine at the Rickshaw Restaurant, to jaw-dropping molecular and modernist dishes at Caviar and Bull, every palate is catered for at the hotel’s four elegant eateries and two destination bars. Corinthia Budapest is a 21st-century grand hotel located in the heart of Budapest, created by experts with a passion for craftsmanship and an understanding of world-class service. Corinthia Budapest is an award-winning member of Corinthia Hotels’ collection of five-star hotels founded by the Pisani family of Malta.
