Our stay at your hotel had helped tremendously in enjoying our holiday in Budapest. All the human resources at the hotel were polite, and very helpful. In short the service was exemplary. I intend to stay at the kempinski on my next visit to Budapest.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Kempinski Hotel Corvinus

Best Hotel Ever!

from livH
We stayed at the Kempinski in Budapest in October 2004 and it was by far the best hotel experience I have had to date. The rooms were large and luxurious, the bathrooms were huge, the staff were friendly. We got an excellent deal on expedia and actually felt guilty for paying so little for such an amazing hotel. I would absolutely recommend this hotel for anyone wanting an extra special trip away.

Hmmm....mixed review

from DogInTow
This hotel is w/out a doubt luxurious and wonderfully located. However, please be aware that even if you get a good room rate that makes this property seem affordable, they do charge you for everything extra. Just one example of this is the charge for the internet corner - equivalent to $8 per 15 minutes. I was also diappointed w/my spa appointments. Be aware that if you book facials or manicures/pedicures through the hotel, the appointments are actually booked in a salon outside and not affiliated w/the hotel. I had a scheduled nightmare between the two that caused me to miss a sightseeing tour. In the spa itself (or just around it) they are doing construction. The serenity of my massage was interrupted multiple times by sudden drilling/pounding etc just above the treatment room.

Out of this world Hotel !!!!!

We have been to Budapest 5 times and this was far & away the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The decor was fantastic and the rooms very comfortable. The location was perfect for all the sites and we enjoyed a great stay in this wonderful city. We really hope to return !!!!

Just got back from a great stay at the Kempinski. The roomes were huge, service impeccable. Any request seemed no problem at all. I organised a birthday cake as a surprise for my husband, and although they had placed it in the room before we got there, it was no hassle to quickly remove it and get it transported to Spoon restaurant where we had reservations! Didn't have quite enough time to use the facilities, but they looked fab!

Would recommend Kempinski to anyone!!!

Best Luxury Hotel In Budapest

from vipers2314
Having Stayed 4 Days at the Kempinski in May 2005 , we were delighted and extremly happy of our choice .
Let's say it from the beginning , it's a 5+1 Star Hotel , The Highest rated Hotel in Budapest so dont expect to find a Good Deal Price as even the Best Deals are Still High . Everything in it is also very expensive too so no reason to blame the Hotel if you choosed to stay there .
I arrived very late at night and was really pleased to see someone waiting for me outside to take my baggage and later take them directly to my room . I checked in , then decided to join my girlfriend wich was waiting for me in the Corvinus Bar , and about 10 min later i received a call from abroad . They knew and remenbered my name , even though the caller didnt know yet my room number , so they sent someone to tell me * Mr ... * you have a call . This was the first hour so i knew what i would expect at this Hotel .
Then i went to see the room . You use your Card Key to open the Door then you put it inside so you can be able to switch on everything in the room ( Lights , TV , Electricity .... ) . When the lights were turned on i was really satisfied . We took a Standard Room and i can tell you it's more than enough for two . I can imagine How The Deluxe Look like . The Room was big and comfortable with plenty of space . You have A Desk , Chair , Small Sofa with Small resting support for your legs . The TV is inside a Big Armor , where you have also the Fridge under , with the Mini Bar .
The Bathrooms can be described by one word : Splendid . If i am going to go to this Hotel again it's due to their Bathrooms . Spacious ,Very Luxurious Marble , Large Bath , Bath Tube , Floor Heating , Hair Dryer , and Even a Phone ( The Room had Three Lines ) . The Shower is so powerfull and nice .
Mini-Bar Prices Are extremly expensive so pay attention of what you take , tempation is really high as they have delicous things ( 850 F for a Coke while u can have it outside for less than 200 ) We payed 15.000 Forints ( 65 Euros ) and we didnt take nothing much .
You have a satelite TV with Free Channels But the Surprise was that you have Pay TV too if you decide to watch movies they show or listen to Music ( Expensive Prices as always , goes as much as the price of buying the DVD ) We tried to listen to an Album but was surprised that once started , you can't playback any music or even forward it , so you have to wait till it finsih . You can pause it thought . It was 1800 F ( 8 Euros ) . But all this is Optional and no need to try them .
The Buffet Breakfast is exceptional , served from 6 till 10h30 . The Best Breakfast in Town . Rewarded many times at the best breakfast in Budapest . You have Very Big Choices , and you can easily find foods you like . We had it included in the Room Rate , if not you will have to pay 27 Euros per persoon for it , so i recommend you eat somewhere else . Enjoy and eat as much as u can .
The Spa newly opened is Great . You have free access .Maybe the Only minus is the size of the Swimming pool , wich can be little bigger but still is lovely . The Saunas and Steam Area is amazing , ty it yourself . Gym Room is small like in nearly all Hotels a downside too . A Big variety of treatments , very expensive too . Wanted to try but was fully BOOKED .
4 Big and fast elevators wich makes it easier and quicker to go wherever you want . I was surprised by how busy the Hotel was during my stay . I can say maybe it was more than 80-90 % Booked .
The Reception Staff are the best , smiley , polite and helpfull at any time .
Location of the Hotel is Very Good Too , next to it is Le Meridien ( Was surprised of how close it was , maybe 5-10 meters separate the two )
Very Close Metro Station , 10 Min Walk to the Danube and major shopping and recreational area .

Visited most High Class Hotels There , and Would say That the Kempinski is the Best . Even The New Four Season dont compare , which i found very classical especially the Entance . And it's Prices are much more expensive then Kempinski . Maybe a Close Second would be The Hilton in the Castle District For it's superb Location .

Would Highly Recommend Kempisnki for the luxury traveler seeking the Best . It's Location , Design , Proffesional Staff , Rooms , Breakfast are unbeatable

Worth considering

from bowiewhist
5 star luxury as far as the rooms and facilities are concerned - but have breakfast elsewhere as the price is exhorbitant! It has a central location, a few yards from the trams and metro and from many of the sights. The staff are efficient although could be chattier in the bars and restaurants.

Good refurbished leisure centre.

Fantastic property

from A TripAdvisor Member
I cannot praise this hotel enough! It is truly a top notch 5* property. I did not give it a full test; but, every step of the way, the personnel met every challenge I provided, including local & private tours. They couldn't have been kinder or nicer.

First Class

from helenclaire
Have just returned after spending four nights in this hotel. Requested rooms near to each other as our daughters were staying also. Were given two fabulous rooms on the 8th floor with connecting door. Attention to detail was second to none and the breakfasts are to die for (probably from over eating). Very centrally located, ideal. Staff were very helpful and pleasant, "good morning" from everyone. Would thorougly recommend it. Chocs on your pillow an night!!

walk of budapest

from A TripAdvisor Member
hotel is excellent in all ways we had two nights staff very friendly and helpful place very dear than we thought three pound a pint in all places not for cheap break

Simply Disappointing

from HappyPano
Spent three nights as tourist in November. Was looking for 5-star experience to cap 3 week jaunt through Eastern Europe, to rejuvenate and relax. Overall experience left me wanting . . . this was just not 5 star service as I am accustomed from the 4 Seasons and Pan Pacific's of the world. To be fair, the location is very convenient, and the room itself was very well appointed. I also found the concierge to be acceptable, although not outstanding. On the negative side . . . the wait staff in the hotel bar was surly, unresponsive, and disdainful. The room service menu (and in fact any food available after 10pm) was embarrasing by 5 star standards -- few choices and crazy prices. The breakfast would be nice at half the price, although even there the service was not super. Picture one omelet chef trying to service 100 patrons. Not a pretty picture. Internet access was a joke -- starting at $10 for first 15 minutes. Please don't fall for this, walk around the corner and pay $2 for 30 minutes at one of the many internet cafes. Perhaps this is a decent hotel for a one or two night business stay on an expense account, but was not at all satisfying for leisure travel. Looks and smells like a 5 star but is missing that special service ingredient that delivers on the promise. Will not be back, next stop Meridien Budapest.

Top Local Tips for Budapest

Budapest is not what you think Budapest is beautiful city, even though most of the tourist books don't seem to like it. Crime was not rampant, as we had been told, and the people were warm and friendly. Don't miss the Gelhert Baths at the Gelhert Hotel, Heroes Square and the Museum of Terror. Some of the avenues look like Paris. The view from the castle hill is spectacular. There are lots of American restaurants if you don't like Hungarian food.

Bike tour We used a company called Yellow Zebra bikes to do a half day trip round Budapest. It was a great way to see the city and the guide spoke excellent English and we really felt we saw virtually everything Budapest had to offer.

take a tour on the first day there,you should take a day tour, you will see everything the city has to offer. you will be able to go anywhere you want without feeling a little lost or confused.
