by Property Forum | Hotel

Deutsche Hospitality has opened its first IntercityHotel in Budapest. The 312-room hotel, realised by the Hamburg-based B&L Group, will be 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 at 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.”
