Accor outlines plans for Eastern Europe’s first Tribe hotel
Showcasing the work of Puhl and Dajka Architects Studio and DeSallesFlint Interior Design, Tribe’s new lifestyle hotel will open in Budapest at the end of 2023.
Tribe’s entry to Eastern Europe
French hospitality giant Accor has signed a deal paving the way for development of the first Tribe hotel in Eastern Europe, building on its commitment to the fast-growing lifestyle sector. This new scheme has been earmarked for Kertész Street in the centre of Budapest, with construction due to begin later in the year ahead of a planned opening at the end of 2023.
“Tribe is an alternative lifestyle hospitality brand with modern, unique and urban spaces designed in collaboration with local designers,” said Frank Reul, vice president development, Accor Northern Europe. “The Tribe brand aims to surprise travellers with an original, exciting and carefully curated experience that focuses on style rather than price, making it a leader in the design-led affordable luxury lifestyle sector.
“The vibrant capital of Hungary, and the 7th district, is the perfect destination for this sophisticated and contemporary brand, and is sure to win the hearts of guests and locals.”
A vibrant community experience
This Tribe hotel will house 250 guestrooms, along with public spaces, designed by Puhl and Dajka Architects Studio with a focus on incorporating state-of-the-art technology. DeSallesFlint Interior Design, Nina Weinstein Lighting Design and Hilla Mayer Lighting Design are also making significant contributions to the project.
Guests can expect to find a variety of useful facilities and services onsite, including co-working space, a fitness centre, bicycle rental and a sky bar with impressive views.
This will be the first hotel development for Futureal, adding to its diverse portfolio of domestic and international real estate projects.
“Futureal is about to open a new chapter in its successful real estate operation of almost two decades as we are entering the hotel sector,” said Tibor Tatár, CEO of Futureal. “As a result of careful preparation, deep market research and planning, our latest business line can start with a remarkable project in Hungary. We believe that we have found the right partner in Accor to introduce an exciting brand to the local market, and to create a solid, long-term cooperation for realising further developments.”
