As Marija Crnjak/Poslovni Dnevnik writes, after the Mövenpick Hotel, the second hotel of the world-famous operator Accor is set to open its doors here in Zagreb at the end of this year or the beginning of next year, and it is set to become the very first hotel in Croatia that will operate under their premium Pullman brand.
The 200-room Pullman Zagreb hotel is being built in the new City Island Zagreb complex and is already being mentioned as one of Accor’s new projects on their website, where other information about the Pullman brand can also be found. That confirms that the management contract has already been signed with the investor, but Accor’s official announcement is still expected. On the ground, it has since been found out that the training of the future staff, who should be sufficiently professional to work for this kind of premium hotel, will begin soon.
The first Croatian Pullman is othewise going to be one of 53 hotels under development that will operate under this brand, along with 146 already opened Pullman hotels across 41 countries. The brand has the highest penetration in China and South Asia, and in Southern Europe only 8 percent of the buildings bear the Pullman hotel name. According to Accor’s website, Pullman is a premium international brand mainly intended for international travellers who enjoy a combination of work and pleasure.
Pullman hotels are located in the busiest global cities and the most sought-after tourist destinations and have 4 and 5 stars. In addition to the one set to open in the new City Island Zagreb complex, Pullman Hotel Doha, Indonesia, Singapore, China are all being developed in parallel, and this year, Pullman will debut in Bulgaria as well.
This Accor brand has the most pronounced artistic and design features compared to all Accor brands and has facilities intended for both business and leisure guests, with an emphasis primarily placed on the congress section and high quality fitness facilities, which is also expected from the Zagreb Pullman hotel.
