The Kempinski Hotel Corvinus is fabulous. My overall impression is that it's quite business orientated, but it's also luxurious and plush and ideally located in the centre of the city – perfect for weekend getaways.
Our 'superior' room was enormous, as was the bathroom – we had a shower and a separate bathtub. The room was superbly furnished and very clean. We especially loved the crisp, white feather duvets on the bed and the free access to the Kempinski Spa, complete with a pool (small, but we never had to share it), lounge area, sauna, steam room and tepidarium. The spa even provides complimentary robes (incredibly soft and cosy), slippers and towels.
The service at the hotel was impeccable. The concierge was very knowledgeable and made excellent restaurant recommendations and did the bookings for us. In addition, every evening we came back to find our bed turned down and chocolates on the pillows.
Breakfast wasn't included in the package deal we got with our flights, but the beautiful Gerbeaud café (http://www.gerbeaud.hu/) is just 100 metres from the hotel and serves a delicious breakfast that's easier on the wallet than the £30 buffet at the hotel.
My only complaints about the Kempinski are that the shower temperature was inconsistent, nearly scorching me and then within ten seconds turning to ice. Also, the king sized bed was actually two smaller beds pushed together - not exactly ideal for a romantic weekend as there's a big crack down the middle of the bed! However, I would still very highly recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Budapest. It made our long weekend even more special.
