The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the world’s fastest growing hotel companies, part of The Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, and Smart-Holding investment company have signed a hotel management agreement for Park Inn by Radisson Troyitska in Kiev (Ukraine). The 199-room hotel located in the city centre next to the Olimpiyskiy National Sports Complex can welcome its first guests in the third quarter of 2013.
‘We are happy that Park Inn by Radisson, a dynamic, medium-priced hotel brand, is entering Kiev’s hospitality market that is well-known to us as the company operating two upper upscale Radisson Blu hotels in the city. The new asset will surely strengthen our positions of the leading international hotel operator on Ukraine’s market. Today, our Ukrainian portfolio features 8 hotels, both currently operating ones and those under construction, with the total of 1,900 rooms,’ says Wolfgang M. Neumann, President and CEO of The Rezidor Hotel Group.
‘I am sure that by combining our efforts with The Rezidor Hotel Group we will be able to offer our guests an attractive and competitive product meeting the global quality standards,’ says Sergey Ovchinnikov, Director of Real Estate Projects of Smart-Holding, the company owning the hotel. ‘Our investment in Park Inn by Radisson Troyitska amounts to about USD 30 million,’ he adds.
In addition to 199 comfortable rooms, the infrastructure of the new hotel Park Inn by Radisson Troyitska will feature a restaurant and a bar with a panoramic view of the city on the 20th top floor of the building. Besides, the hotel will boast a lounge zone and a terrace, a fitness studio and an adjacent underground parking area for 450 cars as well as 9 premises for negotiations and events. Both tourists and business travellers will appreciate the hotel’s convenient central location making all the main historic sites, malls, business centres and administrative buildings of Kiev close at hand.
The Olimpiyskiy National Sports Complex, located next to the hotel, hosted the final match of EURO 2012 Football Championship and is the main sports arena of Ukraine and the second largest stadium of Eastern Europe. The stadium hosts international football matches and important sports events as well as the performances of the world stars such as Madonna, George Michael and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
