In addition, the hotel’s Royal Suite Corvinus won the category Hungary’s Leading Hotel Suite 2019.
World Travel Awards represents the highest accolade for Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest. Founded in 1993, the WTA brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.
Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest has been the winner several times in different categories by World Travel Awards over the years. Besides receiving the title of Hungary’s Leading Business Hotel in 2007, 2009 and 2016, Kempinski Hotel Corvinus was also named Hungary’s Leading Hotel in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2017.
“The awards are a great recognition from our partners and guests of our excellent performance, we are honoured and proud” said General Manager Stephan Interthal. “I’m especially pleased that we received this prestigious award as we have just completed the second phase of our redesign project, releasing two more guest floors of refreshed and fully redesigned rooms and suites in April. This brings the total tally to five floors of 33 fully redesigned rooms and 23 suites, and 228 softly refurbished units. The new Kempinski Corvinus redefines luxury and residential styling, and provides the latest technological requirements for the design-savvy, discerning traveller.”
The renovation project is aimed at creating an organic contemporary aesthetic experience throughout the hotel, complete with all the conveniences and indulgences travellers, leisure or business, need and expect. The new design executes noted British designer Alex Kravetz’s vision of a soft colour palette of elegant gold, reserved platinum and muted grey, as well as warm, dark brown wood.
To enhance the new decor of the redesigned rooms and suites, the hotel purchased 31 contemporary Hungarian works of art, as part of the hotel’s extensive corporate Corvinus Art Collection.
The renovation of these units is part of a total EUR 12-million investment.
