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.palace@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.lisbon@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.stpetersburg@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.khartoum@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.tripoli@corinthia.com

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

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.

From vodka shots to Lindy hopping, here’s what to do after dark in St Petersburg

Russia’s capital of culture is notoriously cosmopolitan. From fashion to food, it’s a city that knows what to cherry pick from the continent and beyond. And St Petersburg’s nightlife scene is where its discerning tastes really come to the fore. From laid-back speakeasy haunts spilling jazz into the early hours to lively tequila bars frequented by in-the-know locals, here are St Petersburg’s nightlife highlights.

The Best Hidden Bars

One of the joys of a visit to St Petersburg is soaking up the atmosphere of its trendy neighbourhoods and discovering tucked-away local treasures. El Copitas is certainly one such place. You have to call ahead to book, and with no street signage, it’s not exactly easy to find, but once you make it inside in this tiny Mexican-themed cocktail bar with serried ranks of tequila bottles a cheery backdrop, you’ll be glad you made the effort. For a more local flavour, few rival the stark, Soviet feel of Chroniki Bar. Despite the no-frills décor and a snack menu that’s a little heavy on herrings, it’s fun, lively and well-attended by Piter’s cool crowd. As popular is Apotheke Bar, whose understated entrance, marked only by a pharmaceutical cross, belies extravagant interiors and sophisticated cocktails that are beautifully presented.

The Cosiest Wine Bars

If tequila, vodka and Old Fashioneds are a little too strong an aperitif, duck into Do Immigration. This cosy but contemporary wine bar pours a small selection of sommelier-recommended Old and New World vintages. Prosto Vino, located in an atmospheric cellar, and Vinnyy Shkaf, a cool step back from Nevsky, take a more local approach. Their thoughtful selection of wines are selected from small Russian producers. Both establishments serve a mix of European and Russian cuisine alongside their wine menus, with the latter offering a great choice of vegetarian dishes.

The Coolest Live Music

For jazz, it has to be 48 Chairs. Spilling sultry sounds across the late hours, it turns from restaurant to nightclub as the evening progresses, so be ready to dance once dessert has been cleared away. There are also excellent formal performances at the Jazz Philharmonic Hall, whose lamp-lit tables and smart Art Deco interiors are a nostalgic nod to jazz history. For large-scale commercial concerts, A2 is St Petersburg’s largest live music venue, so look out for touring international acts.

The Chicest Nightclubs

For a full-throttle party that lasts well into the night, take your pick from the noisy, neon establishments lining Dumskaya Street. However, St Petersburg’s nightlife scene offers so much more. For lights, lasers and an endless, crowd-pleasing pulse of electronica, head to Mosaique. Frequented by the beautiful and the damned, it has a smart dress code and is the place to be seen. For a night out that’s a little more intimate, Akakao is housed in what feels like a private apartment, and requires a password to enter, so make sure to call ahead.
