Hotels in Hungary
Hungary is Cranley’s first Central European destination with listed Hungary hotels that include several of the award-winning ‘best hotel’ hotels in Budapest such as the Corinthia Grand Royal. Focussing initially on the most prestigious hotels in Budapest, carefully selected 5 star hotels listed are mostly Budapest city centre hotels located along the famous Danube River with several Budapest hotels enjoying spectacular views of the Danube.



The initial line-up of Hungary hotels to be listed by Cranley with independent hotel reviews and photos include several award-winning 5 star hotels; Kempinski Hotel Corvinus, the Andrassy Hotel in Budapest and the Sofitel Budapest. The Novotel Budapest is included for those holiday and business travellers seeking more budget accommodation.



Now Cranley has established its first hotels in Budapest it will continue to add further Budapest hotels, focussing on the 5 star hotels and 4 star hotels for city breaks and business travel to soon cover most of the best known Budapest hotels before looking to expand deeper into less known Hungary countryside with Hungary hotels that include the exotic castle hotels and manor hotels in northern Hungary.
Background

Hungary is located strategically in Central Europe between Western Europe and the Balkan Peninsula. The north-south flowing Danube and Tisza rivers divide the country into three large regions and its largest borders are with Austria to the West, Slovakia to the North, Croatia to the South and Romania to the East.

Since World War II the country was under Communist rule until in 1968 it began liberalizing its economy introducing ‘Goulash Communism’ and holding its first multiparty elections in 1990 after which it initiated a free market economy and joined NATO in 1999. Hungary acceded to the European Union in May 2004 and continues to demonstrate strong economic growth.

Hungary’s population is around 10 million, virtually equal to the number of mobile phones in circulation. Foreign ownership and investment in Hungary is widespread and Roman Catholic is the dominant religion practiced by over half the population.
