Luxe downtown digs opposite Erzsebet Park with an opulent spa and Central Europe’s first Nobu restaurant
Just a few blocks from the Danube, the Kempinski Hotel Cornivus offers easy access to the sights, shops, restaurants and bars that make this city so exciting. In true Old World style, the serene lobby is filled with live music most afternoons, and a lobby lounge offers a High Tea of delicate sweets and tea or coffee served in fine china. Sip a glass of Hungary’s famously sweet Tokaji with your cake or sample the creative cocktail menu at Blue Fox The Bar. On-site Nobu restaurant attracts locals, expat foodies and even the odd A-list celeb.
Bed and Bath
As you’d expect, the rooms offer nothing but comfort, with thick mattresses and patterned duvets. The furnishings are tasteful in a neo–Art Deco style, and the bathrooms are decked out in marble. The rooms with the best views are those that overlook Erzsebet Park, a well-kept green space that's popular with the city’s skaters. Kempinski’s Room Comfort Menu comes standard and offers a choice of pillows, customized bath amenities and kid-friendly extras like baby bathrobes.
Dine on contemporary Hungarian-Viennese dishes at ÉS Bisztró, a brasserie-style spot with an alfresco summer terrace, or snag a table at Central Europe’s first Nobu outpost, a welcome addition to this seafood-starved country. Kempinski The Spa is based on Europe's four seasons and has steam baths, saunas, a Kneipp bench, a well-equipped fitness room, an ice fountain and a café in case you need refueling. But don’t linger too long — Budapest’s packed program of cultural activities and its famously fun nightlife await just outside.
In the Area
Across the street, in Erzsebet Park, the Aquarium Klub pulls a young and trendy evening crowd, while Vigadó holds concerts and dance performances (try to catch a Roma or Hungarian folk one if possible) late into the night. By day, take to Budapest's thermal waters at one of the several bathhouses. The Széchenyi, located in City Park, is a favorite. The city's many markets are also worth a peruse; try Central Market to see the bounty of fresh produce and meat or the Design Market for bespoke garments produced by local designers. For cityscape views, the Budapest Eye - a giant ferris wheel which offers panoramas across the city - is located opposite the hotel.
