Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts today announces the opening of Crowne Plaza Budapest – its first hotel in Hungary. Located in the heart of the Hungarian capital, the hotel is adjacent to the Nyugati train station and is in a prime position for locals and those travelling to Budapest for business, leisure or a combination of the two.
Designed to meet the needs of the modern business traveller, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts deeply understands work/life blend and this is brought to life at the brand’s hotels worldwide through a modern, distinct and purposeful design featuring multi-functional zones, great food and drinks, and a warm and engaging approach to guest service.
Historically two separate cities, Buda and Pest, that joined in the 19th century, there are two unique characteristics that can been seen when exploring the city. Whether it’s the historic architecture and rolling hills of the west (Buda) or the business hub and trendy bars of the east (Pest) – there is something for everyone. Situated in the Pest (east) side of the city, the iconic Nyugati train station in downtown Budapest is famed for its design and construction by the renowned Eiffel Company. As the main travel hub for much of the international train travel coming in and out of the Hungarian capital, the building itself has recently undergone an extensive restoration project to return the late-19th Century structure to its former glory. Adjacent to the hotel is the newly built Westend shopping centre, accessible directly through the hotel. Guests can visit the shopping centre’s three-hectares of roof garden on the top of the Westend building, and all the stores and services available within.
All 230 rooms and suites at Crowne Plaza Budapest have a distinctive modern design and layout to help encourage productivity, restoration, and to inspire guests. Guests will enjoy a noticeable sense of space with a layout that includes a desk area for work, a sofa for relaxation and a comfortable bed with high-quality bedding to promote a good night’s sleep.
Guests can also take full advantage of the hotel’s Plaza Workspace, a flexible and agile space offering visitors and guests the opportunity to collaborate, meet colleagues, or work solo. The combination of flexible working and relaxation spaces, with food and drink options, enable guests to move seamlessly between work and downtime. Crowne Plaza Budapest also has an additional 13 meeting rooms and event spaces available to hire, and a Club Lounge with exclusive views from the private terrace of the wonders of both Buda and Pest. With IHG’s Meet with Confidence programme, guests have the flexibility to book future meetings and events with zero cancellation fees at participating hotels. Whatever the business need, a dedicated Crowne Plaza Meeting Director will ensure every event is a success.
