Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest remains one of the definitive and innovative luxury hotels in town. Centrally located in a purpose-built, boldly contemporary edifice, it offers 349 rooms and suites, and bespoke curated services. Its lobby is home to Gastronomic Quarter Downtown Budapest, the hotel’s own culinary concept, featuring a diverse variety of outlets, such as Nobu, ÉS Bisztró, ÉS Deli, The Living Room and Blue Fox The Bar. Kempinski The Spa’s unique spa treatments are inspired by the European cycle of the seasons, while The Promenade Gallery shows contemporary Hungarian art.

The hotel continues to enhance its products and services. Ten Rooms, a reconstructed events area, opened in April 2017, featuring the latest in technology and design to deliver a versatile range of Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Events (MICE) solutions.


At the end of last year, full renovation started in all the guestrooms and suites, with the first phase to conclude at the end of March 2018, launching 27 Premium Grand Deluxe Rooms and 11 Suites, based on the plans by noted British designer Alex Kravetz. The decor of 126 Premium Superior and Deluxe Rooms will also get a refresh, from carpets to curtains, to create a refined atmosphere.

The Kempinski’s general manager, Stephan Interthal, said: “It is a great honour to receive such a high accolade for the second time. We have been uncompromising about our core mission, since opening, to provide the highest and most personalised services to our guests.

“A ranking this demanding to achieve is especially important feedback as it not only reaffirms our objectives and direction, but also offers guidance on where we have room to grow and how we can improve.”


Gerard J. Inzerillo, Chief Executive Officer of Forbes Travel Guide, commented: “We are pleased to honour the 2018 Star Rating recipients, an exceptional collection of hotels, restaurants and spas that demonstrates a strong culture of service.
