The History of the Royal Spa

The spa was planned and built by famous Hungarian architect Vilmos Freund in 1886-88. At that time it contained steam baths, wave and shower baths, electric baths, pneumatic chamber and a medical room with cold water. Contemporary journalists were fascinated by the spa's appearance. In 1903 direct access was created for hotel guests. After the First World War, Freund was declared bankrupt and his heirs sold the spa in 1923 to the Royal Nagyszálló Rt. The spa operated until 1944 and has been closed ever since. The abandoned and obsolete spa was rediscovered in 1983 and was earmarked for conversion into a car parking facility. Thankfully, János Dianóczki, who was in charge of planning the proposed multi-story car park, turned down the proposal with the full backing of the media and the public. The Malta based International Hotel Investments, owners of the Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal acquired the property and immediately set about drawing up plans for its rehabilitation.
