Budapest airport has announced plans for a second Accor hotel connected to its terminal building.

A 167-room TRIBE property is being built next to the existing ibis Styles Budapest Airport Hotel, which opened in 2018.

The 8,000 sqm hotel is expected to open in 2025, and will feature a sky bar, terrace, fitness centre, a 150-capacity conference room and two further meeting spaces.

Accor acquired Australian hotel group Mantra in 2018, and with it a sole existing hotel in Perth under the TRIBE name. The group subsequently announced plans to roll out the brand as a four-star midscale offering.

The property at Budapest airport will join the recently opened TRIBE Budapest Stadium, part of a dual-branded TRIBE and ibis development within the South wing of the city’s Liberty Tower.

Last year Accor opened the first UK property under the TRIBE brand, located on Water Street, around five minutes’ walk from Canary Wharf Underground station.

Commenting on the news René Droese, chief development officer, Budapest airport, said:

“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.”,
