IntercityHotel Budapest, developed by the Hamburg-based B&L Group, is Deutsche Hospitality’s first property in Hungary. Located right next to Keleti Railway Station, it will also feature resplendent latest generation IntercityHotel interior design by the Milan-based architect Matteo Thun. The Green Meeting Concept will ensure that the ecological footprint of the hotel is reduced to a minimum. The CO2 impact of conferences and meetings held will be fully offset. 312 rooms will offer guests free fast Wi-Fi, coffee and tea making facilities, satellite TV, air conditioning, a desk, a safe and a fridge. The new hotel will also include a restaurant, a BistroLounge & Bar and a conference area. The latter is able to accommodate up to 200 persons and consists of five separate rooms, some of which can be combined.
“Budapest is an ideal metropolis for us as we seek to gain a foothold in the Hungarian market,” said Christian Kaschner, Senior Vice President IntercityHotel. “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.”
The B&L Group operates from Hamburg. It is the owner of the building and is acting as the contractual partner of the IntercityHotel Budapest. B&L can look back on a history of cooperation with IntercityHotel GmbH which stretches back for many years. “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’s 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.”
“Thanks to its central setting, our new IntercityHotel Budapest is the ideal starting point for travellers of any kind,” stated Tibor Polgar, General Manager of the 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. Using the IntercityHotel app, which also serves as a digital room key, our guests can also check in and out contactless.”
Budapest is considered to be one of the most attractive destinations in the eastern part of Central Europe. It is home to an impressive array of Art Nouveau architecture and thermal baths, whilst the River Danube also meanders its way through the city. Numerous sights, museums and historical buildings all bear testimony to a history which extends back for millennia.
