Gastronomy and luxury in Budapest
316 Rooms / 33 Suites
Set in the heart of Budapest’s thriving downtown, with its terrace backing onto the road colloquially known as Fashion Street, Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest combines the luxury of contemporary design with the best in the city’s gastronomy scene topped off with its Zen in-house spa.
This modern hotel connects to local history through the customized designs of its suites and an extensive and diverse collection of original Hungarian art. Its elegant New Empire-style rooms deliver all the 21st-century comforts that travelers expect.
Arranged in an elegant curve, the architecture of the glass-clad Budapest hotel follows the shape of the letter C, unintentionally fitting the Corvinus name with the design.
Each traditionally decorated room comes accented with a sophisticated entertainment system, a minibar and room service featuring dishes from Nobu. Spacious en-suite bathrooms with under-floor heating have all the necessary amenities.
The upper-tier rooms (ranging upwards from the Grand Deluxe category) also give you the ability to indulge in a no-hassle morning coffee with an in-room Nespresso machine. The suites, partitioned into a living area and a bedroom, also come stocked with a range of Elemental Herbology toiletries, the same high-end products used in the onsite Kempinski The Spa.
The five Corvinus Collection suites sport their own unique design inspired by Hungarian history and culture, like the Herend porcelain in the aptly named Herend Suite or the monarchical-style furnishings in the Erzsebet Suite. Each suite in the collection has a luxurious living space, a dining room and two bathrooms. They also come with a fully equipped office, including a 21.5-inch Apple iMac.
Upon stepping out of the elevator, follow the Zen rock garden into Kempinski The Spa. The aroma of essential oils hangs in the air of the spa lobby, which is decked out with chairs where you can delight in a fresh drink or even order from Nobu before embarking on treatments.
Recline on the resting beds, listen to relaxing music from the attached headphones or take a swim in the tranquil pool, which is equipped with a jet stream and Jacuzzi. Linked onto the pool area behind another corridor, the tepidarium is a perfect place for repose before detoxing in your choice of steam rooms and saunas.
The spa also offers a selection of services from massages to facials, but its signature treatment is the Hungary Holistic, a Hungarymud wrap to help rejuvenate skin and relieve joint pain. There is also a wide selection of holistic and seasonal treatments available.
The Gastronomic Quarter
Embracing the hotel’s core philosophy of beauty, culture and gourmet cuisine, the Gastronomic Quarter Downtown Budapest provides a selection of culinary delights on the property’s premises. És Bisztró brings contemporary Austro-Hungarian cuisine to life in the elegant bistro run by celebrated restaurateur Roy Zsidai. The És Deli in the hotel lobby serves sweet and savory gourmet snacks and coffee.
Another jewel in the Kempinski gastronomic crown is Nobu, hailed chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa’s avant-garde culinary fusion of Japanese-Peruvian cuisine. The chain has earned its reputation internationally as a fashionable hot spot and also delivers to guest rooms and to the spa.
You can also find classic and innovative cocktails at Blue Fox The Bar, which also turns out burgers and bar snacks. But for those who prefer a cup of afternoon tea or gourmet coffee, the Living Room puts out a variety of beverages and a selection of cakes for a low-key bite.
