Grand Budapest Hotel

Go ‘behind the scenes’ of Budapest and a grand hotel and discover the roots of the Hungarian film industry

Wes Anderson's latest all-star film The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the two World Wars. But what hotel inspired this movie? If you check out the history of Corinthia Hotel Budapest, formerly the Grand Hotel Royal, you can’t fail to spot the common points between our former mantle and the movie’s Grand Budapest Hotel.

Did you know that the first movie screening in Hungary took place at our Grand Ballroom, which was then transformed in to the Royal Apollo cinema in 1915?  Or how about which Hollywood legends resided at the Presidential Suite since 1896?

Discover the secrets of our hotel’s history during the ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour and follow in the footsteps of the stars with a  walking tour of Budapest to visit the city’s most famous film shoot locations.
