ROMANIA Ibis Styles opens in Galați

Hotels
Accor has opened its first hotel in Galați on Romania’s eastern border – the Ibis Styles Dunărea Galați.

The 80-room hotel has opened after the refurbishment of the former Hotel Dunărea, which was built in 1960.

The speed of Accor’s development in Romania has not been impacted by the unprecedented challenges the hospitality sector has faced in the last few months. Confirmation of this is provided by our opening of seven new hotels this year with a total of 802 beds.
Christophe Chamboncel, Accor’s vice-president for operations management in Romania and South Eastern Europe

The opening of the Ibis Styles Dunărea Galați is Accor's second in Romania this year, after the Ibis Styles Bucharest City Center on June 22nd. It is to be followed by another in the Danube port city, the Mercure Galați, along with the Mercure Timișoara, the Ibis Styles Bucharest Airport, the Ibis Timișoara and the Ibis Bucharest Politehnica. The hotel operator is also planning to open ten more hotels in 2021–2023 under various brands, from economic to luxury standard.
