At Corinthia, we always strive to provide the best rates on our website. If you don’t think we have, we’ll pay for 100% of your room on the first night, and price match the rest. Should you find a lower price elsewhere, please submit a claim within 24 hours of your original booking and we will respond within two working days. Please note, this also applies to discounts and promotions available on

Process for making a claim:

Step 1. If within 24 hours of a confirmed reservation with Corinthia Hotels made on, you find a lower rate for the same hotel, room type, inclusions, stay dates, discounts and payment conditions, please contact the relevant email address from the list below to make your claim. All claims must be made within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time of the hotel.

Step 2. Your claim should be supported by the URL where the lower rate was found and a screen shot which clearly displays the date of stay, room type, same hotel, inclusions and payment conditions of the lower rate offering on the competing website. Please include your contact information (name, email and phone number).

Step 3. If we are able to verify that the lower rate found qualifies for the Best Rate Guarantee, and all other terms and conditions are met, Corinthia Hotels will pay for 100% of the room charges of your first night, and will price match the room for the rest of your stay. You will be charged for all nights booked at the matched rate, minus the first night which will be free.

To make your claim, email the relevant hotel on one of the following:

First night free, match rate for rest of stay, no minimum nights

If the claim refers to a reservation consisting of several nights' accommodation, the average rate for each night will be compared to the average rate for each night, for an identical reservation, using the website where the lower rate is found.

11. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to rates found offline, negotiated corporate rates, group or MICE rates, opaque provider rates or rates requiring membership in a club or other organization, governmental rates, direct mail or email solicitations, rates offered by providers that do not supply the name or location of the hotel until after a reservation has been made or other rates that are not available to the general public. We reserve the right to deny a claim if the availability of the Competing Rate cannot be independently verified at the time of processing the claim.
12. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to packaged rates. Packaged rates include Hotel accommodations sold as part of a travel package in which the Hotel does not provide all services (including but not limited to airfare and/or car rental, tours etc.) and Hotel accommodations sold with additional amenities.
13. Corinthia Hotels may deny a claim where the difference between the rates is less than 1%.
14. If the Competing Rate is in a different currency from the rate booked on, the Competing Rate will be converted into the same currency as the rate offered on our website using the exchange rate as published in in place at the time the initial reservation was made. Discrepancies may occur between Corinthia Hotels' rate and the Competing Rate due to differences in exchange rate sources. If the rate discrepancy is solely due to exchange rate fluctuations, we reserve the right to deny the claim.

Budapest might not be the first place you think of when planning a skiing trip, but with gentle mountains outside the city and ample snowfall in winter, it’s an excellent place to take to the slopes. When visiting Budapest in the colder months, get out into nature for a day and visit one of these fantastic ski centres.

Nagyvillám Ski Resort

Situated on a beautiful curve of the great blue Danube, the small town of Visegrad is just one hour from Budapest, and it’s here that you’ll find the Nagyvillám resort. Welcoming all abilities and ideal for beginners or children, what Visegrad lacks in thrills and spills it makes up for in gorgeous vistas across the river’s twists and turns. Its peak elevation is 377m, and there are two slopes measuring 150m and 250m. At the base of Nagyvillám you can rent skis, snowboards and equipment.

Mátraszentistván Ski Park

An hour and a half northeast of Budapest, Mátraszentistván Ski Park is one of Hungary’s most popular ski runs. With nine different slopes of varying difficulty levels running across a 4km system, it caters to skiers of all skills. For beginners, Mátraszentistván is home to the largest ski school in the country and it’s incredibly child-friendly, holding courses from six years and up.

Dobogókő Ski Centre

A small but beautifully scenic course, Dobogókő is the closest ski resort to Budapest at just 39km from the city centre. You’ll glide down a glistening piste, sheltered by a snow-sprinkled forest at the Danube Bend’s highest point of 699m. Dobogókő Ski Centre has two slopes; the lower parts of both are perfect for beginners, while the upper parts are more challenging. You can hire equipment, take lessons by the hour, and don’t leave without dining in the incredible wooden ski hut restaurant designed by famous Hungarian architect, Imre Makovecz.

Intersport Ski Arena

Piste-fiends and novices alike will love Intersport Ski Arena’s 16 tracks for all levels. Located in the village of Eplény, an hour and half from Budapest, it features Hungary’s longest uninterrupted ski route and is the only FIS-accredited course in the country. Ski and equipment rental is available and there are four-seater chairlifts to whisk you up to the top of the snowy peak. Instructors and restaurants are available, too.


For those that love a dizzying challenge, Kékestető is at Hungary’s highest peak in the Matra Hills, northeast of Budapest. Atop its vertiginous slopes is a ski centre with training school, restaurant and He-Do bar where you can warm up apres-ski with mulled wine or warm punch. With eight slopes so high they’re kissed by the clouds, Kékestető offers plenty of variety. You can even ski at night for an especially atmospheric experience.
