Radisson Hotel Group signs fourth property in Romania, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Cluj-Napoca – based in the regional capital of Transylvania. Due to open in spring 2021, the property will build on Radisson Blu’s leading position as the largest upper upscale hotel brand in Europe – a portfolio that includes the renowned Radisson Blu Hotel, Bucharest, one of the top hotels in the country.
Attracting more than 600,000 visitors each year, the city of Cluj-Napoca is growing in popularity as a leisure and business destination. Tourists are drawn to what was once a center of commerce in Ancient Roman times, exploring its historic landmarks and architecture.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Radisson Blu remains the largest player in the upper upscale segment across Europe. We look forward to a successful journey with our partners based on trust and responsibility.”
Nina Moldovan, President of the Board and representative of the investor Winners Park Invest, said: “We are excited to partner with Radisson Hotel Group, one of the leading players in the hospitality industry. We have looked for a brand that recognizes and is able to respond to the needs of the business and leisure clients in our region, and we are proud to have found such an ideal partner. Cluj-Napoca is a destination that has a lot to offer – we are looking forward to opening our doors to everyone looking for a meaningful experience here very soon.”
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Cluj-Napoca will feature 149 guestrooms, with a mix of standard, executive, suite and VIP apartment room types for all travelers. Leisure and dining facilities will include a fine specialty restaurant and a fitness room, while meeting and events guests will benefit from hi-tech conference rooms and a 350sqm ballroom for up to 300 guests.
The property will be centrally located in the historic center of the city, near the Cluj Arena Stadium. The city is known for its artistic culture, fiery nightlife, great music and film festivals and bold architecture – ranging from Romania’s second-largest Gothic church to baroque buildings and medieval towers.
The hotel will be easily accessible. Cluj-Napoca International Airport is located just 9 km away from the hotel, receiving direct flights from 48 European cities.
