Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and the great news is that the day of love falls on a Sunday! If you’re a foodie looking for a luxury hotel with first-class cuisine, now is the time to book the Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest.
What’s so special about the Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest? The 5 star hotel is home to the first Nobu Restaurant in Central Europe, one of the best addresses for gourmet food in the Hungarian capital. Nobuyuki Matsuhisa – known to the world simply as “Nobu” – is the acclaimed and highly influential chef proprietor of Nobu and Matsuhisa restaurants all over the globe. Once you try the NOBU, you’ll get addicted to its innovative menu!
After a 2.5 hour drive from Vienna, I took a seat in the The Living Room and ordered a delicious lemonade.
The Living Room is inspired by the local coffee-house culture serving great coffees, fine teas, a cake selection and strictly rose-only champagne. It boosts comfortable sofas, high-back armchairs, and a lovely fireplace. It’s the perfect place to relax before starting the shopping tour on the famous Váci utca – located within minutes from the Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest.
ROOMS & SUITES
If you’re in the mood for a serious splurge, check into the 57 sq m Executive Suite. It’s a cosy suite with truly spectacular views, featuring a large sitting room area, an elegant bedroom area with king-size bed and a spacious bathroom.
WELLNESS & SPA
The wellness sanctum is furnished with a modern gym, saunas, a pool and several treatment rooms. Kempinski The Spa treatments use Elemental Herbology products, which combine holistic medical knowledge with innovative bioactive skincare technology to counter ageing & environment effects. So give it a try!
WINING & DINING
ÉS Bisztró is a refined, minimalist brasserie serving delicious Hungarian-Viennese dishes. The bistro is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and offers a modern, casual and design-driven brasserie ambience.
The breakfast is amazing – the food subtle and extremely fresh. You can tell everything is of the highest quality. Oh and if you go to ÉS Bisztró, you have to order Eggs Benedict!
A special shout-out must go to the NOBU Restaurant, where the great chef masterfully combines shellfish, seafood and succulent meats. All the dishes were so tempting but I decided on my favorite, the Japanese Wagyu Ribeye Steak A5 Grade – delicate & velvety, a sheer delight!
Kempinski Budapest is the perfect hotel for sightseeing tourists as well as for business travelers – it’s within easy reach to St Stephen’s Basilica, the Great Synagogue, Chain Bridge and the Opera.
Budapest’s ambience resonates with a multicultural charm rich in Roman, Italian renaissance, Ottoman, German and Austrian impressions, offering a unique composition that makes up the Hungarian culture and identity. Explore Budapest by night and you’ll get mesmerized!
A place you should not miss if you’re in Budapest: the New York Cafe, a gorgeous building built in eclectic style relying on Italian renaissance and baroque – everything being made of marble, bronze, silk and velvet.
New York Cafe is seriously impressive and a luxurious piece of art! But check out these culinary delights…
With all that being said… GO, GO, GO!
Thank you to the Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest for welcoming Expat Trip!
