Hungary's Largest Hotel, Danubius Hotel Hungaria, to Reopen
Danubius Hotel Hungaria, Hungary's biggest hotel is set to reopen on February 23, Danubius Hotels tells the Budapest Business Journal.
As previously reported, Danubius Hotels has ordered a temporary shutdown of the hotel in order to ensure efficient operations, to meet occupancy forecasts and to address the economic and energy situation.
On a company level, the hotel management is seeing a positive trend in the spring-summer occupancy forecasts, with a return of interest in Budapest and the country from leisure groups and a number of high-profile events being organized in Budapest this year.
"Given the expected demand, we have judged that now is the right time to expand our capacity with the opening of Danubius Hotel Hungaria. It is a positive turnaround in tourism that the group tour business, which has been ailing since COVID, seems to be gaining strength again," said Balázs Kovács, CEO of Danubius Hotels.
"The number of bookings of this type has increased significantly in the last period, and there is also great interest in several cultural and sporting events hosted by our capital. All colleagues working at the hotel were looked after during the temporary shutdown. We have an extensive portfolio of hotels in the capital, so we were able to provide work for our colleagues in Hungaria during this period."
With the reopening of Danubius Hotel Hungaria, the hotel chain will once again be open to guests in nine hotels in Budapest, Bük, and Győr from the end of February.
