Hungary Crowne Plaza opens in Budapest

Hotels
Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts has opened its first hotel in Budapest.

The Crowne Plaza Budapest is located next to the Nyugati train station. The hotel has 230 rooms as well as a flexible workspace area with 13 additional meeting rooms. The hotel also features the Axis Café and Lounge restaurant.

During 2020, we had time to reflect on the things that we take for granted and what was missing because of the lack of travel: the importance of human connections. There has been a distinctive shift in people’s mindset when it comes to business travel. No longer do hotel guests need to feel isolated in their rooms or confined to a business centre to feel productive, and no longer do locals need to be hesitant to walk into a hotel lobby to have a coffee and write some emails for fear of being asked for their room number – the space within our hotel are open to all, and we are very much looking forward to hosting our future guests and locals alike.
Maurice Janssen, general manager, Crowne Plaza Budapest
