Budapest Airport has announced the addition of a new hotel, TRIBE, with a direct connection to the terminal, is to open in 2025. Following the success of the gateway’s first airport hotel, the ibis Styles Budapest Airport Hotel which opened its doors in 2018, the development will continue to enhance the profile of Hungary’s capital city and strengthen its competitiveness in the region.
Developed by WING, the Hungarian market leader in commercial real estate development, construction on the new TRIBE has already begun. Being built next to the original hotel, the 8,000m² new hotel will offer 167 rooms to both business and leisure travellers, as well as offering a 150-seat conference room, two meeting rooms, a gym, and a sky bar for an outstanding gastronomic experience with fantastic views.
The TRIBE brand is at the forefront of stylish, functional design hotels, at affordable prices. With the brand’s signature community amenities and contemporary design concept, the hotel’s expanded services will be tailored primarily to business and transfer travellers, with a focus on maximum guest comfort; the spacious restaurant and lounge area will accommodate 140 people in total, while the terrace will seat 60.
“The ibis Styles Budapest Airport Hotel, developed by our group, has been operating at almost full capacity since its opening, with excellent guest ratings. Based on existing guest demand and the success achieved, TRIBE will arrive in 2025. This will be the brand’s second unit in Hungary, alongside the hotel in the mixed-use Liberty building that we also developed. The existing ibis Styles and the new TRIBE will be directly connected, and the new complex will be an important milestone in the life of the airport; the development will further expand the airport infrastructure. The number of available rooms more than double and the additional high-quality services will enable the airport to meet the needs of its guests at a higher level,” said Noah Steinberg, President and CEO, WING.
“For Budapest Airport, it is of utmost importance to provide passengers with quality services. To this end, we are continuously developing the airport, in cooperation with our partners and through joint thinking. There is an increasing need to expand services and capacities in and around the airport as passenger traffic increases; we were therefore delighted to welcome the plan to build a new hotel, which fits in well with our Terminal 3 project and forms part of our Airport City development,” emphasised René Droese, Chief Development Officer, Budapest Airport. He added: “We are confident that the TRIBE will offer excellent services to both business and leisure travelers.”
“In addition to its rich historical heritage, Budapest is also a significant regional business centre. As the continuous success of ibis Styles Budapest Airport Hotel shows, the capital is increasingly popular with leisure and corporate travellers as well”, said Frank Reul, VP Development, Accor Eastern Europe. “With a second property built in cooperation with Budapest Airport, we strengthen Accor’s presence in a strategic destination of Central and Eastern Europe. It is a unique opportunity to expand the portfolio of one of our fastest growing brands, TRIBE in Hungary as well.”
Budapest Airport’s long-term development plans include not only the expansion of the passenger terminal, but also the related infrastructure and services. The airport operator developed the plans in such a way that another hotel building could be added, next to the first hotel. The area to be used for the hotel expansion is integrated into the development of the planned multi-storey car park, the central intermodal hub and the Airport City, with additional office buildings. The new hotel building continues the characteristic facade solutions of the ibis Styles, elegantly connecting the two buildings, with Aspectus Architect again being the designer. In terms of interior design, TRIBE marks a new direction, following the international brand’s standard, a bolder and more dynamic interior design concept is implemented, with Ester’s Partners being responsible for interior design.
