Hilton Garden Inn Budapest City Centre Slated to Open in 2018
BUDAPEST and MCLEAN, Va. – XXXX – Hilton (NYSE: HLT) 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, and will offer guests an unparalleled location in the Hungarian capital’s city centre.
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, development, EMEA, Hilton. As Hilton’s first focused service property in Hungary, Hilton Garden Inn Budapest City Centre will serve the increasing tourism demand by providing a high quality, great value accommodation option.
Hilton Garden Inn Budapest City Centre will be situated on the eastern side of the Danube River close to the city’s major shopping district, Andrassy Ut. Many of the city’s most popular sights are within walking distance of the hotel, which will also benefit from being just 100m from the Hungarian State Opera House. Budapest boasts a number of UNESCO world heritage sites, as well as world famous thermal baths and stunning vistas from the western side of the city, known as “Buda”.
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 that offers cooked-to-order breakfast, dinner and a full bar as well as a signature Hilton Garden Inn Pavilion Pantry, which allows guests to purchase items such as snacks and drinks 24/7. Situated in one of Europe’s major locations for international conferences, the hotel will also serve the needs of guests travelling on business, holding three meeting rooms and a business centre.
Imre Csordás, CEO, Accent Hotel Management, said: As an experienced hotel management company overseeing 16 hotels and over 1,600 rooms in Hungary, we’re delighted to be adding to our successes and partnering with Hilton on this exciting new development.

Hilton Garden Inn Budapest City Centre joins Hilton Budapest and Hilton Budapest City as the third Hilton branded hotel in Budapest.
