Rezidor, a rapidly expanding global hotel company, has
announced plans for a new hotel, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Belgrade. The
property, which features 236 rooms, is already under construction and
will welcome the first guests in Q4 2013. It is Rezidor's first hotel
in Serbia and the hotel group is now present in 64 countries across
Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Kurt Ritter, President and CEO of Rezidor, said: "We are delighted to come to
Serbia. The country is an emerging nation, and Belgrade a vibrant, dynamic city with
1.7 million inhabitants where we see a considerable potential."
Austrian real estate developer Soravia Group, in cooperation with Erste Bank Group
and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), is undertaking the
development of the hotel and of an additional office tower of 3,900 square meters
set adjacent to the hotel.
"Our development addresses the current undersupply of quality hotel accommodation
providing state-of-the-art finishing and service standards. It is among the first
major investments of this type in Serbia and we are convinced that market prospects
as well as our engagement with Rezidor will ensure a successful and long-lasting
venture in Belgrade," said Soravia Group-CEO Hanno Soravia.
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Belgrade will be situated in a prime location next to the
convention centre and above one of the city's most important thoroughfares. It is
set to become a local landmark, as the overall development of the site will
incorporate an existing historical old mill. The hotel will offer access to the
traditional "Old Belgrade" neighbourhood as well as to the "New Belgrade"
business district. In addition to the 236 rooms with Radisson Blu signature
services, such as free high speed Internet access, the property will have a
restaurant and bar, 600 square meters of meeting space, a wellness area, and parking
Eastern Europe is an important business development market for Rezidor. In addition
to its western European hotels, such as hotel Lyon in France, it has established a presence in
Russia/CIS and the Baltics and currently operates hotels in Poland, Czech Republic,
Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania. The hotel group has also extended
beyond Eastern Europe, with hotels like hotel Riyadh located in the Middle East.
