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.
How to Get There
very well located, nice rooms and other commodities. It is very expensive, I did not try breakfast or dinner/lunch as you have many opportunities around. Room is comfortable and service is nice, although not sure if make sense to pay such amount of money.
I had a facial there and the facial was good but what makes me write this review is that the lady was very helpful, she let me use the sauna before my facial and she told me that she will let me know if some one come because Im a muslim and I cover my hair and body. the spa is mixed but that day I felt thats its only for lady thanks for the privacy amazing experience.
Great lobby, nice and friendly staff, well located. Also nice lobby to drink a coffee or tea during the day. I definitely enjoy coming here every now and then as a not hotel guest.
Rooms are nice and big, its quiet there.
Great place. The hotel was very good, clean, the room was comfortable and very relaxing. We loved the smell of the hotel, very special smell one of a kind . The location is perfect, in the center, close to everything.
From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty, the staff can't do enough for you, the ensuite room was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The hotel has spa facilities, we used the pool, saunas and steam room which were empty so really relaxing. The whole hotel smells gorgeous and the breakfasts were fantastic! If you can't find anything you like to eat, there must be something wrong with you as there was so much choice! Would definitely recommend this!
