Romania: Corinthia will reopen former Grand Hotel du Boulevard

Corinthia Hotels has announced that it will reopen the former Grand Hotel du Boulevard in Bucharest.

The hotel will reopen its doors in late-2019, under the Corinthia Hotels luxury brand. The property will offer 50 rooms and suites, dining options, a grand ballroom, boutique meeting spaces and luxury amenities.

A spokesperson for Corinthia Hotels said: "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 signature standards of timeless luxury and style associated with Corinthia. The hotel follows Corinthia's tradition of restoring 19th century grand hotels across Europe."

Grand Hotel du Boulevard is a landmark property in Bucharest. The  building was designed by Romanian architect Alexandru Orascu, who also designed Bucharest's University. The building is classified as a monument of Culture and Architecture by the Ministry of Culture.

The spokesperson added: "The award-winning Corinthia Hotel London, Corinthia Hotel Budapest, formerly the Grand Hotel Royal, and Corinthia Hotel St Petersburg, Russia, are all 19th century landmark properties which have been acquired, redeveloped and relaunched by Corinthia Hotels. In Brussels, the former Grand Hotel Astoria was acquired in 2016 and works are currently underway to transform the property back to its original splendour."

Corinthia is a collection of luxury five-star hotels founded by the Pisani family of Malta in 1962.
