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
bestrateguarantee.budapest@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.prague@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.stgeorges@corinthia.com

bestrateguarantee.lisbon@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.stpetersburg@corinthia.com

Terms and Conditions:

Corinthia Hotels guarantees the best online rate on corinthia.com based on the following terms and conditions:

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.
3. The Best Rate Guarantee only applies to published rates available to the general public online, which can be found and booked immediately without any kind of restriction or payment restrictions.
4. The lower rate found must be for exactly the same booking criteria - the same hotel, the same room type, same inclusions, the same stay dates, same number of guests, the same rate description and, if applicable, the same promotion. The cancellation and advance purchase policy and all other terms and conditions of the stay must also be identical. 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.
5. Corinthia Hotels will verify the lower rate claim and respond within two working days of the claim being made. *Claims will be processed from Monday to Friday, between 9am to 5pm, at the hotel's local time.
6. The rate comparison will be made net of any taxes, gratuities or any other fees or charges associated with the room rate, and the lower rate must still be available at the time the hotel validates the claim.
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.
10. Best Rate Guarantee will be suspended during times where corinthia.com or certain rates are not available due to an outage, a technical issue or a circumstance beyond Corinthia Hotels' reasonable control.
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 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.

Discover the thriving world of contemporary art in Malta in this guide to the island’s galleries and creative spaces

From the devout Mannerist and Baroque painters who flourished under the rule of the Knights of St John, to the acclaimed sculptor Antonio Sciortino, there’s a long history of art in Malta. However, a new generation of contemporary Maltese artists and gallerists has come to prominence in recent years, dragging art in Malta out of the museum and into the white cube, workshop and pop up space. Contained within a staunchly global outlook and boundary-pushing approach, is the belief that Malta is capable of producing work that can compete on the international stage. From galleries like the Tempra Museum with its international art historical purview, and the influential Spazju Kreattiv at St James Cavalier, to smaller spaces like Studio 104 and Christine X, who are working hard to nourish new artists, we select the best places to see contemporary art in Malta.

The Tempra Museum for Contemporary Art

With four floors containing work by over 250 artists spanning the gamut of 20th and 21st century movements, the Tempra Museum in Mgarr is arguably the home of contemporary art in Malta. The Tempra Academy, which actually had its first edition in London back in 1975, also stages many cultural events during the year, ensuring that their remit goes beyond cataloguing historical movements to stimulating the ideas to power new ones.

Lily Agius Gallery

Gallerist Lily Agius was born and raised in London, but moved to Malta in 2001. Her broad international perspective has seen her gallery become a crucial node in the Maltese – international art dialogue. While the gallery is committed to raising the profile of Maltese-born artists – something clearly evident in its roll call of homegrown talent – their work sits amidst work from rising international artists, ensuring the conversation flows both ways.

Christine X

If you want to purchase a piece of contemporary Maltese art, the Christine X gallery in Sliema is a good starting point. This small commercial gallery was established in 2004 and shows work by both local and international artists – at the time of writing the gallery was hosting an exhibition that explored art in metal from Haiti and Gozo. While the style of the artworks varies, colour and expressionism are the dominant trends.

Studio 104

This innovative space in Malta’s capital runs educational workshops as well as cutting edge exhibitions that feature audiovisual and installation work alongside wall-mounted pieces. The gallery, which also includes a working studio, is currently running an exhibition called Flux. This show – alongside other similar exhibitions – spotlights the work of rising young Maltese artists, many of whom have already exhibited abroad.

Spazju Kreattiv at St James Cavalier

This historical building in Valletta has been home to the Spazju Kreattiv since 2000. This cultural hub, run by the Fondazzjoni Kreattività strives to stimulate the exchange of ideas, build cultural identity and – crucially – reach out to the community with a boundary-testing programme of exhibitions and projects. They also hold workshops, organize events such as the Valletta International Arts Festival and display a keen grasp of the cutting edge through their discussions at the intersection of art, film, technology and beyond.
