Corinthia Hotels is set to expand its five-star hotel portfolio with the opening of a new luxury property in Bucharest, Romania. Located in the heart of the capital, the former Grand Hotel du Boulevard is slated to open in 2021.
Built in 1867, the listed building was last used as a hotel over a decade ago and will now undergo extensive refurbishment to sit in line with the standards of Corinthia’s other 19th century grand hotels such as Corinthia Hotel London, Corinthia Hotel Budapest (formerly the Grand Hotel Royal), Corinthia Hotel St Petersburg, and the Grand Hotel Astoria in Brussels, which is scheduled to reopen in 2022.
Corinthia Grand Hotel du Boulevard Bucharest will offer over 50 rooms and suites, exquisite dining options, a grand ballroom, boutique meeting spaces, and luxury amenities.
Corinthia is a hotel chain founded by the Pisani family of Malta in 1962. In Bucharest, Corinthia’s role will be that of operator under terms of a management agreement signed with owning company NIRO Investment Group.
