Five-star Corinthia Hotel Budapest receives more accolades from TripAdvisor


The five-star Corinthia Hotel Budapest has been voted as one of the top 25 hotels in Europe by TripAdvisor users, and the only hotel in Hungary to make the list. The Travelers’ Choice awards, the only honors representing the unbiased opinions of millions of travelers, are among the most coveted awards in the hotel industry.

According to the Budapest Times, the Corinthia Hotel Budapest was singled out for its excellent customer service. “At every possible touch point, the Corinthia uses ‘surprise and delight customer service’ to turn customers into brand ambassadors.” The article goes on to say “What is remarkable is being able to deliver that level of service when you are the largest convention hotel in the city. If you have ever spent any ‘quality time’ in most convention hotels, you know that the first thing that often suffers is the level of service. Not so at the Corinthia.”

Other honors and recognitions recently received by the Corinthia Hotel Budapest include Splendia’s “Top 12 Favorite Hotels of 2009” as one of three most impressive hotels and number two on Travel Republic’s Hotels of 2009 out of 70,000 hotels, as well as winning the Golden Sun 2009 Award for Best Five-star Wellness Hotel in Budapest and five different awards from the ‘Best of Budapest’ Award ceremony.
