Hilton has reached a franchise agreement with Accent Hotel Management to open Hilton Garden Inn Budapest City Centre. The 214-guestroom hotel is set to become Hilton’s third hotel in Budapest by 2018.


“Hungary continues to be an increasingly popular tourist destination and in 2016 Budapest had one of the highest RevPAR growth rates of any European capital”, said Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President of EMEA Development at Hilton. As Hilton’s first focused service property in Hungary, Hilton Garden Inn Budapest City Centre will serve the increasing tourism demand.

Hilton Garden Inn Budapest City Centre will be situated on the eastern side of the Danube River close to the city’s major shopping street, Andrássy Road. The new build hotel will be set across nine storeys, providing views from the top floor over St. Stephen’s Basilica and the Hungarian State Opera House. It will include a full-service restaurant as well as a signature Hilton Garden Inn Pavilion Pantry, which allows guests to purchase items such as snacks and drinks 24/7. The hotel will also include three meeting rooms and a business centre.

“Hilton Garden Inn has a pipeline of more than 40 hotels in addition to the 50 hotels currently operating in Europe. Central Europe continues to be an important growth hub for Hilton, and 2017 promises to be another exciting year with a number of key openings including Hilton Garden Inn Bucharest Old Town”, John Greenleaf, Global Head of Hilton Garden Inn at Hilton, said.
 
Hilton Garden Inn Budapest City Centre joins Hilton Budapest and Hilton Budapest City as the third Hilton branded hotel in Budapest. It will be located at Lázár utca 11-13., in the 6th district of Budapest.
 
Just last week, another international brand, W Hotels have announced a new opening on Andrássy Road, scheduled for 2020.
