Posted January 08, 2019 08:08:48A few days ago, the hotel chain Grand Budapest made headlines when it confirmed that it was planning to open a new hotel in the city.
In an interview with The Local, a Czech publication, hotel executive director Andréz Jablonski said the new hotel would be in the centre of the city’s historic Old Town.
The Old Town is located at the foot of the Hungarian capital’s famous Buda Hill, and is home to some of the most iconic buildings in the world, including the Budapest Cathedral, the Hagia Sophia and the Hungarian National Theatre.
The hotel project is part of a larger plan to modernise the Old Town, with plans to convert some of its historic buildings into hotel and spa properties.
The plans are expected to take more than two decades, but Jablenski said it would be possible to open the new Grand Budapest hotel in 2019.
The hotel is already well known for its stylish modern style and modern amenities, but many of its guests are not locals.
“We would like to thank our guests for their support in making the Grand Budapest an unforgettable experience,” Jablinski said.
The hotel has already received an endorsement from the local government, with the Czech city of Bohuslice supporting the project and the Czech Republic’s Minister of Tourism, Danisz Pálymán, welcoming the Grand Hotel as a new “great opportunity for tourists and residents of the Old City.”
“The new hotel will be the most luxurious hotel in Hungary and we believe it will bring a lot of new experiences to the Old District of Budapest,” he said.
But Jablanski said he hoped that the Grand hotel would draw people from across Europe.
“It will be a great place for everyone, because we have many tourists from all over the world,” he added.
“I hope that we can attract people from other European countries, as well.”
The Grand Budapest, as it is called, is expected to cost around €1.4 billion ($1.7 billion).
