Hotels
Cloud IX, Budapest’s latest panoramic skybar, has been opened in the ibis & Tribe Budapest Stadium Hotel in the WING Liberty building. Opened last December in Budapest’s District IX, the hotel complex boasts a total of 332 rooms and a wide range of services.

The ibis & Tribe Budapest Stadium Hotel, part of WING’s mixed-use development in the Liberty building complex, occupies the Könyves Kálmán körút wing, adjacent to office spaces. The hotel features 332 rooms that are equally shared between the ibis and Tribe brands. The complex includes an all-day à la carte restaurant, a gym, underground car park, and a conference centre accommodating up to 180 guests and featuring five multifunctional event halls.

The skybar is located on the ninth floor of the Liberty building, offering panoramic views of the city. The rooftop bar can seat up to 120 patrons. Cloud IX is open not only to the hotel’s guests but also to the general public, offering a dog-friendly and accessible venue.

Liberty was financed by OTP Bank Nyrt. The construction of Liberty as an energy-efficient, green property also received public funding through the Real Estate Fund sub-programme of the Baross Gábor Capital Programme.
