IntercityHotel expands into Hungary

IntercityHotel has announced that it will provide Deutsche Hospitality with its first Eastern European property by 2019.

Set to be located in Budapest, adjacent to the city’s Eastern Station, the 300-key hotel will feature interiors designed by Matteo Thun as well as a restaurant, bar, conference area and underground car park.

Joachim Marusczyk, Managing Director of IntercityHotel, comments: “Budapest is a city with a great past and lots of potential. We are delighted that our brand will soon be able to offer a centrally positioned and modern hotel in such an attractive metropolis.”

The building is owned by the Hamburg-based B&L Group which, as well as acting as being a contractual partner, is also currently working with IntercityHotel to develop three new hotels in Hamburg-Barmbek, Dortmund and Hildesheim. This will mark the first occasion on which B&L has joined forces with IntercityHotel to implement a project abroad.

Thorsten Testorp, Managing Partner, B&L Group, concluded: “For B&L, the development of the IntercityHotel project in Budapest represents an extraordinarily exciting challenge which we are delighted to be able to tackle. We are looking forward to working together with Deutsche Hospitality, a partner of many years’ standing, to realise this outstanding hotel property.”
