“Definitely a recommendation”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

The Kempinski is a relatively new hotel and building in Budapest. I stayed that as part of a small group of women that took a 4 day spa and tour trip in March. Of course, since it was sunny and reasonably warm the entire time, I'm certain my entire experience was positively swayed. The rooms were spacious, clean, and beautifully appointed. Everything product (shampoo, conditioner, office supplies, etc.) you could want was provided. The bed was comfortable, and the 2 pillows supplied seemed to be a choice of one soft and one firm. Our room was quiet, though we did hear a slight bit of pedestrian party noise one evening as we had our window cracked open (5th floor) because we found our room became a bit too warm through the night without this.

I like the location, as I thought the Pest side had more areas that you would want to explore by foot, while the Buda side was more a couple of compact areas that were easy to visit on their own. It was a short couple of blocks to the river, and overall very central and convenient.

The breakfast buffet was amazing! I could not think of anything a westerner would want that was not provided. The food was fresh and varied. I also found the staff to be particularly attentive for a buffet (and in general). We ate one night at Nobu (a Japanese restaurant in the hotel) and it was very good with some interesting takes on the cuisine.

The exercise room was a bit small and could only be reached through the spa. Two of the three bikes did not work when I was there, and neither did the TVs. Air flow in this room was not ideal, but there was a reasonable amount of equipment available. This area was the weakest point of the hotel for me and did not live up to the rest.

A number of ladies in the group had spa treatments and were happy with them. I had a foot massage which was fine, but not great. I had to book a 'Thai' foot massage as this was the only one available that day. They were accommodating in giving me 'regular' message since I have knee problems and did not want a Thai one. This may have led to part of my disappointment. Additionally, 'Thai' treatments are done by an 'outside' firm for the hotel which led to some other complications with my bill. Fortunately, this was resolved by Reception when I checked out. As a note, the cost of spa treatments at the hotel were significantly more expensive than the ones at the bath (which were great).

Overall, this is a great hotel and I would heartily recommend it - and Budapest.

I don't usually like overly fancy chain hotels preferring modest or boutique establishments. But I splurged as I was here for business and got a great rate from Hotels.com. And I was very happy. Not a thing about the room and the staff was unsatisfactory. All of it excellent in fact. The location is brilliant. But the best part about this hotel was the spa which had a pool. Wasn't expecting that and it totally made my stay!!! I'll be back for that reason alone.

Room Tip: Perhaps all the rooms are on the park side - but definitely request one as it is awesome.

We stayed at the Kempinski Budapest and on the whole we were very happy with our stay. We stayed over the Christmas period and the location could not be bettered. The main Christmas market was a couple of minutes away as was a number of tourist centres. What did marr the visit though was that when we got home we realised that I had left an expensive pair of trousers in the drawer in the room. We e-mailed the hotel of our dilemma with no response. We e-mailed again - again with no response. Very disappointing.

Dear valued guest,

We would like to thank you for taking time on your Tripadvisor review. We gladly learned that you enjoyed Christmas Market and the advantages of the central location of our hotel. We regretly noticed you have no response from our hotel on your lost trousers, experience is certainly not representative of the service we provide in lost & found items. To let us investigate this issue further, please pass us the previous letter to following e-mail addresses: reservations.corvinus@kempinski.com and web.corvinus@kempinski.com. Looking forward to hear from you soon, and welcoming you at the Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest again,

we remain with very best regards
