As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes, even before the announced opening of Accor’s hotel under the Movenpick brand in Split in 2023, Accor will open its first hotel with the brand’s signature right here in the City of Zagreb this June. The new hotel will be located in the business zone of Novi Zagreb, less than five minutes drive from the City Island project and the Museum of Contemporary Art, and is a continuation of the collaboration between Accor and MPPD.
“I’m pleased to announce the opening of the first top Movenpick Hotel Zagreb in a prestigious business location in this part of Europe. This will become the third hotel from the Accor group to open its doors in Croatia. Last year, the FERMAI hotel in Split joined our MGallery collection, followed by the Möoenpick hotels in Zagreb and Split. I’m more than convinced that the new Movenpick Hotel Zagreb will become a favourite place for business travellers who, with this perfect location, are looking for a modern, well-equipped space in which to hold their business meetings, as well as a unique place to relax, unwind and enjoy some fine food,” said Dilek Sezer, the Accor Group Development Director for Southeastern Europe.
The up and coming Movenpick Hotel Zagreb will be located in a new building which was constructed back in 2019, next to the building which, among other things, housed the editorial offices of Vecernji list and Poslovni dnevnik. The hotel boasts 104 smart rooms and suites, and each room will be named after another city elsewhere in Europe and the world and will offer guests a personalised experience, as well as a stylised map of the city after which the room was named, which will be an integral part of the decor. The building is inspired by the life and work of the genius Nikola Tesla, and a special addition for business guests is a private room with direct access from the garage, in order to provide customers with complete discretion.
“After cooperating with Accor on the development of the Movenpick Split project, we believed that Movenpick would once again be an ideal brand for this location in Zagreb. Accor’s global reach, as well as the attention it pays to sustainable development and ESG criteria, are decisive factors in our partnership. We believe that Accor is the leader in Europe in the category of premium hotel brands, especially in the business segment. As the world returns to business travel being normal once again, we’re convinced that Accor is the right partner that will bring the Movenpick Hotel Zagreb to the top of the local hotel and catering and hospitality market,” said Andrija Antic, the director of MPPD.
The position of General Manager of the Movenpick Hotel Zagreb will be taken over by Mincho Pachikov, who has been with Accor since back in 2012 and has more than 20 years of experience in management positions in the hospitality sector and in real estate investments.
