Deutsche Hospitality celebrates inaugural opening in Hungary
The launch of the 312-room IntercityHotel Budapest, featuring interiors by Matteo Thun, marks Deutsche Hospitality’s first foray into the Hungarian hotel market.
The fast-growing IntercityHotel brand has landed in the Hungarian capital Budapest.
A convenient location
As is often the case for Deutsche Hospitality’s IntercityHotel brand, its latest outpost is located close to a major railway station. This 312-key property, realised by B&L Group, occupies a modern building right next to Keleti railway station, making it easy to reach for both domestic and international travellers.
Inside, guests are welcomed by Milan-based Matteo Thun’s stunning interior design. The property’s facilities include a restaurant, the BistroLounge & Bar and a conference area for up to 200 delegates – moreover, the brand’s Green Meeting Concept promises to keep the ecological footprint of meetings and conferences to a minimum.
“Thanks to its central setting, our new IntercityHotel Budapest is the ideal starting point for travellers of any kind,” said Tibor Polgar, general manager of IntercityHotel Budapest.
“The historic centre of Budapest, as well as the trade fair centre and the airport, can be reached quickly by public transport. Visitors arriving by car will also be able to take advantage of one of the 230 spaces available in our adjacent underground car park.”
IntercityHotel Budapest’s rooms will feature free wifi, satellite TV, coffee- and tea-making facilities, air conditioning, a safe, a desk and a fridge.
Christian Kaschner, senior vice president of IntercityHotel, said: “Budapest is an ideal metropolis for us as we seek to gain a foothold in the Hungarian market. This is a lively and diverse city. Its mix of business and leisure travellers is a perfect match for our brand IntercityHotel.
“We would like to thank our partners, in particular the B&L Group, for their excellent collaboration once again. We are delighted that we have now established a presence in Hungary.”
Hamburg-based B&L Group owns the building and acts as the contractual partner for IntercityHotel Budapest.
“We are proud to be able to continue a series of successful hotel property developments for Deutsche Hospitality by launching into a new European capital,” said B&L Group managing partner Thorsten Testorp. “This is our ninth IntercityHotel. Our interaction with local stakeholders, including every aspect from planning to actual construction, has been entirely cooperative and smooth throughout.”
