Expert Review

A five-star property and member of the Leading Hotels of the World, the Kempinski Hotel Corvinus is located within walking distance to the legendary Gerbeaud café, the Great Synagogue (the second-largest synagogue in the world), and the eastern bank of the Danube. The hotel has 335 rooms and 31 suites; standard accommodations are roomy but not remarkable, though bathrooms feature glass-enclosed showers and separate soaking tubs, and perks like free Wi-Fi – a rarity at luxury brands. Among the Kempinski’s four restaurants, Bistro Jardin is known for the “best breakfast in Budapest,” with an omelet station and a couple dozen bread choices; while an outpost of Nobu – the first in Central Europe – celebrated a star-studded opening in October 2010. One unique feature is the Kempinski Gallery, a mix of temporary exhibits and permanent artwork, mostly from contemporary Hungarian artists. An Asian-themed spa incorporates a tiny swimming pool, sauna, and gym.
