SLOVAKIA CPI checks into Mercure Bratislava Centrum

Hotels
CPI Property Group has acquired the Mercure Bratislava Centrum Hotel from Invesco Real Estate for an undisclosed sum.

The Mercure Bratislava Centrum Hotel, close to the city’s main railway station north of the Old Town, offers 175 guest rooms, conference facilities, as well as a restaurant and bar area.

US investor Invesco Real Estate was supported during this transaction and in identifying a buyer by hotel property specialist Christie & Co.

The hotel currently fits in very well with the demand profile of many investors, who are increasingly looking for value-add products in European capitals. As the Mercure Bratislava has a lot of potential with its size and the quality of the location and the building’s substance, we faced strong investor demand and received multiple offers.
Simon Kronberger, the Austria and CEE director of Christie & Co

CPI Property Group now owns a total of 41 hotels across Europe and the CEE region. After its anticipated rebranding, the hotel will be operated by CPI’s internal management team.
