A new hotel representing a special brand from Accor Group is to open at Ferenc Liszt International Airport, developed by Wing, in cooperation with Budapest Airport, the developer announced. The handover is expected in 2025.

Construction has started on a new Tribe hotel at Budapest Ferenc Liszt Airport. Swietelsky Magyarország Kft. is carrying out the structural works of the hotel, with earthworks already underway. The new hotel is being built next to the ibis Styles Budapest Airport Hotel, which opened in 2018, within walking distance from the entrance to Terminal 2. The 8000 sqm design hotel with 167 rooms will serve both business and leisure travellers.

The new hotel will offer a 150-seat conference room and two meeting rooms, a gym on the top, a 7th floor for sports enthusiasts and a sky bar. The restaurant and lounge area will accommodate 140 people in total, while the terrace will seat 60.

“The ibis Styles Budapest Airport Hotel, developed by our group, has been operating at almost full capacity since its opening, with excellent guest ratings. Based on existing guest demand and the success achieved, Tribe will arrive in 2025. This will be the brand’s second unit in Hungary, alongside the hotel in the mixed-use Liberty building that we also developed.” said Noah Steinberg, the President and CEO of Wing. 

“There is an increasing need to expand services and capacities in and around the airport as passenger traffic increases; we were therefore delighted to welcome the plan to build a new hotel, which fits in well with our Terminal 3 project and forms part of our Airport City development,” emphasized René Droese, Chief Development Officer for Budapest Airport.

The area to be used for the hotel expansion is integrated into the development of the planned multistory car park, the central intermodal hub and the Airport City, with additional office buildings. The hotel is being designed with sustainability in mind; it will be one of the first BREEAM-certified hotels in Hungary.
