BEST RATE GUARANTEE – GET YOUR FIRST NIGHT FREE


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 Corinthia.com.

Process for making a claim:

Step 1. If within 24 hours of a confirmed reservation with Corinthia Hotels made on Corinthia.com, 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:
bestrateguarantee.london@corinthia.com

1. Your original booking must have been made through corinthia.com.
2. The lower rate must be found and the claim submitted by email within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time at the hotel. If the original booking was made within 24 hours of arrival, the Best Rate Guarantee is not applicable.

7. The Best Rate Guarantee is void where prohibited by law. Corinthia Hotels reserves the right to modify or cancel its Best Rate Guarantee policy at any time in its sole discretion and without prior notice.
8. Corinthia Hotels has the sole right and discretion to determine the validity of any claim, including without limitation, determining that the lower rate found is genuinely available and that the claim meets all terms and conditions. In case of dispute, Corinthia Hotels' decision is final.
9. In the case of a fully prepaid rate booked through corinthia.com, Corinthia Hotels will refund the difference to your credit card, if applicable, within 30 business days of submitting your claim. Corinthia Hotels is not responsible for any fees associated with cancelling a reservation made through a different channel.

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 corinthia.com, the Competing Rate will be converted into the same currency as the rate offered on our website using the exchange rate as published in www.xe.com 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 with kids: 10 family-friendly places to explore

Postcard-pretty Budapest makes for a fantastic family getaway

It may have quite the thriving ruin bar scene, but postcard-pretty Budapest also makes for a fantastic family getaway. A simple wander around the medieval landmarks of the city could suffice, but there’s also a huge range of entertainment and activities that little ones will love (and parents, too). From the Children’s Railway to the Budapest Chairlift, the Palace of Wonders to the city’s abundance of bakeries, uncover the best of Budapest for kids.

Children’s Railway

The Children’s Railway, known locally as the Gyermekvasút, helps little legs conquer the city’s famous hills. And large legs, too – the name doesn’t refer to a pint-sized train, but references the fact that it’s actually run by children (with adult supervision, naturally). As a bonus, the locomotive stops by many of the city’s most-visited destinations.

Budapest Chairlift

A loftier view of the Buda Hills can be had from the Budapest Chairlift, or Libegő. The 15-minute journey up János Hill provides ample time to take in the ground speeding by underfoot, not to mention those inspiring city views. However, those with a fear of heights should probably give this one a miss.

Budapest Puppet Theatre

Looking for some reliable children’s entertainment? You’ll be relieved to know that the Budapest Puppet Theatre has been a city staple for over 60 years. On most days, several different shows are scheduled – and given the visual appeal, young ones can still enjoy without having to master their Hungarian first.

Széchenyi Baths

It isn’t a trip to Budapest without a good bath – and kids (so long as they’re on the older end of the spectrum) can take part in the aquatic action, too. The natural choice is Széchenyi Baths, whose colossal complex offers splashing options aplenty. A whirlpool, swimming pool, and numerous thermal baths suit all seasons of paddling.

Palace of Wonders

The Palace of Wonders may technically be a science centre, but don’t expect cut-and-dry dissections of Newton’s laws. In fact, the venue’s playful spirit is well reflected in its name, for it houses more than a 100 interactive exhibits that will give visitors young and old the chance to experience scientific phenomena first-hand, from building bridges to discovering magnetic attraction.

City Park

A park, a zoo, and a circus – all in one place? The sprawling City Park is one of the most popular places to explore in Budapest for kids – the city’s largest public park, families with restless children can spend hours here without risk of any creeping boredom. Stop by the renowned Budapest Zoo and book tickets for a show at the Municipal Circus, breaking to explore the playgrounds within.

Miniversum

If you enjoyed the bird’s eye view of Budapest from the Children’s Railway or the Chairlift, add Miniversum to the list – a newly constructed model that displays cityscapes and landmarks from across Hungary and beyond, it also allows kids to control motion and other effects thanks to interactive screens. When they’re not racing trains around the tracks, children can also exercise their imaginations at the on-site playhouse.

Riverboat Tour

Looking to explore Budapest’s architecture? Unfortunately, kids aren’t famous for their patience regarding lengthy ambles around historic sights. Pick up the pace a bit, then, with a riverboat tour. As you speed along the Danube, you’ll get some of the best views of the embankments and the Buda Castle District – all granted World Heritage status by UNESCO.

Millenáris

Though it was once the site of an electric works, these days Millenáris is considerably more child-friendly. The park and cultural centre is host to a popular playground, a duck-filled pond and an exhibition hall, while a theatre offers cultural events and various activities perfect for families looking to discover Budapest for kids.

Sweet Treats

Whew – after all that exploration, a bit of rest (with some cake) is in order. Luckily, you’re in the right place – Budapest is simply brimming with exceptional bakeries and cafes that have mastered the art of pastry. Ruszwurm never disappoints those in need of a sugar fix, whileSzamos Marcipan Royal Café serves stellar, traditional confectionary. If energy levels were flagging beforehand, the sugar high afterwards should see kids through for the rest of the trip.
