The Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest and The Ritz-Carlton Budapest have both been awarded four-star ratings, but it is important to note that the four-star category used in the FTG rating system is not the same as the European hotel rating system.
The Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest has been included in the Star Rating list for the eighth time this year, the hotel’s management told Turizmus.com, while Anantara New York Palace Budapest Hotel, Corinthia Budapest, and InterContinental Budapest have been added to the list of recommended hotels.

The Forbes Travel Guide is an independent international rating system that provides a comprehensive review of luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas. Their professional inspectors arrive incognito at a destination and assess it against hundreds of objective criteria.

The rating (five-star, four-star, or recommended hotel) is awarded to a destination based solely on the results of independent testing.
