IHG Hotels & Resorts announced the opening of its first European Holiday Inn & Suites hotel in Budapest, reports Turizmus.com. The 170-room Holiday Inn & Suites Budapest Centrale will be located in the 14th district, directly above the Puskás Ferenc Stadion metro station.

The area around the Puskás Ferenc Stadion metro station will be completely transformed in a few years’ time with the construction of the Centrale multifunctional complex. IHG Hotels & Resorts will open its first Holiday Inn & Suites hotel in Budapest as part of the complex.

The Holiday Inn & Suites Budapest Centrale will be built directly next to Puskás Arena and the László Papp Budapest Sports Arena, close to the HUNGEXPO Budapest Congress and Exhibition Center, City Park, and the Museum Quarter.

The hotel will include 25 suites with kitchen and dining areas, suitable for medium and long stays, as well as for families. There will also be an open lobby, restaurant, bar, meeting room, and fitness center. Holiday Inn & Suites Budapest Centrale will offer the brand’s key trademarks, including Kids Stay and Eat Free. The Centrale’s multifunctional facility will also feature retail and service space, a food court, and premium offices.

“We are very happy to sign the contract for Holiday Inn & Suites Budapest Centrale, the first Holiday Inn & Suites hotel in Europe. (…) The hotel is located in an exciting part of Budapest, providing guests with an ideal base for exploring the sights of the Hungarian capital. During the development process we were delighted to work with our partners, Chain Bridge Ventures and Mogotel Hotel Group.

We look forward to realizing our shared vision and welcoming guests to the hotel in early 2026,”

said Willemijn Geels, Vice President of European Development at IHG Hotels & Resorts.

Michael Gagel, co-founder of Chain Bridge Ventures, noted that “with the professional support of the CEE Hotels team at Cushman & Wakefield, (…) we looked for the best operator for our needs and found it in Mogotel. They also immediately recognized the potential of the property and joined IHG as a partner. The multi-functionality of the Centrale and the location’s public transport facilities guarantee that the Holiday Inn & Suites Budapest Centrale will be the perfect choice for people arriving in Budapest.”

Holiday Inn & Suites Budapest Centrale expands IHG’s portfolio of properties in Hungary, including InterContinental Budapest, Holiday Inn Budapest, Crowne Plaza Budapest, Verno House Budapest, Vignette Collection, and Kimpton Budapest, expected to open later this year.
