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.

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.

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.

Where to see Street Art in Budapest

Colourful, politicised and powerful, street art in Budapest is a burgeoning art form. Here’s where to see it for yourself

Budapest’s thriving street art scene has given rise to a number of prominent artists putting their stamp on the capital. While the city frowns upon illegal graffiti, groups such as Neopaint Works and Színes Város work with local artists to create firewall murals to legally brighten up Budapest’s neighbourhoods. In addition, legal spaces, such as Filatorigát graffiti wall, are encouraging young artists to take their work to the streets, while ruin bars are breeding grounds for up-and-coming talents. Find out where to see it for yourself with this guide to street art in Budapest.

Seventh District: Neopaint Works

The city’s seventh district is one of the best places to see street art in Budapest. Throughout the former Jewish neighbourhood, bland building façades have been covered in colourful street art, many created by artists and graffiti masters from groups such as Neopaint Works. The result? Beautiful, thought-provoking and often politically charged murals that inspire conversation. Some of the most famous pieces include murals of a crystal tree at Klauzál street, a refugee girl on Gozsdu court and a meadow next to an otherwise sad-looking playground on Király street.

Filatorigát graffiti wall

While these commissioned spaces are impressive, part of the appeal of street art is its ever-changing nature. That’s why Filatorigát, Budapest’s only legal graffiti wall, is significant. Stretching alongside a deserted factory next to Filatorigát HÉV station, the 400m wall invites anybody with a can of spray paint and an idea to decorate it. It’s covered in colourful etchings and signature stamps by a multitude of new and established street artists such as Taker, who has returned to the wall a number of times to create photorealistic impressions of people and animals

Ruin bars

Budapest is famous for its ruin bars – trendy pubs in derelict industrial spaces and abandoned buildings. As it wouldn’t be ‘hip’ to plaster on wallpaper, the owners of such bars have come up with their own kind of wall covering – graffiti. The city’s best ruin pubs are great places to check out artworks by young artists over a pint of craft beer. Szimpla Kert in District 7 is the city’s premiere ruin pub. The pioneering venue is covered in graffiti and also hosts regular exhibitions and events showcasing the works of local artistic talent. Elsewhere, Puder has become an art hub its own right. As well as hosting literary and music events, the bar’s walls are a gallery and display temporary exhibitions of paintings on a rolling basis.

Színes Város

Another group of artists currently revolutionising street art in Budapest is Színes Város (Colourful City). Their philosophy is to take art out of galleries and make it accessible to everybody. They’re responsible for colourful projects all over the city that have taken grey, worn-out public spaces and transformed them into something worth looking at. As well as cheering up the cityscape, Színes Város aims to inspire change by highlighting social issues through art. Discover their works in and around the seventh district and downtown Budapest..

Sticker art

Wherever you are in the city, keep a beady eye out for the latest street art trend: stickers. From lampposts and traffic lights to bins and mailboxes, every surface is a potential canvas for sticker art. Even walking down Andrássy Avenue, Budapest’s most famous boulevard, you’ll find subtle yet expressive flashes of guerrilla street art on most corners. If you look closely, you may even find the remnants of Space Invaders stickers famously left by French graffiti artist, Invader.
