Danubius Hotels Appoints Group Director of Development


Andrea R贸na became the group director of development at Danubius Hotels on July 1, 2022, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

She will be responsible for both the domestic and the European brand hotels belonging to Danubius Hotels.

The expert will be in control of the strategic and operational coordination of the group's expansion and development, the acquisition of the operation of additional hotels, and the identification of new areas for expansion.

Róna has more than 15 years of experience in hotel management and development, followed by eight years at one of the largest real estate development companies in the Central and Eastern European region. She was responsible for the market introduction and opening of several domestic hotels, operation, and development of sports halls and sports centers in Hungary.

"I am delighted that Andrea Róna, a professional with extensive experience, is joining us. Danubius Hotels has proven its expertise in hotel management over the past 50 years. We are confident that, with Andrea's experience, we will be able to use this knowledge in the next phase of our expansion. Our aim is to successfully continue expanding as a hotel operator in the domestic and European market," says Balázs Kovács, Danubius Hotels CEO.

"After two years of difficulties, tourism is recovering. Although the environment around us is still unpredictable, this excellent team has proven that it can achieve fantastic results under less-than-ideal circumstances, too. And our owners, trusting in the expertise of Danubius, are committed to the expansion of the hotel chain and plan for the long term,” he adds.

Danubius Hotel has managed to complete several investment projects this year that were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. These included the completion of the entire renovation of the Radisson Blu Béke Hotel, the refurbishment of 44 rooms at Danubius Hotel Astoria, and the opening of the White Raven skybar & lounge.
