The company Rijeka Property d.o.o. and the Orbis Group, the strategic partner of Accor Hotels in Central and Eastern Europe, signed an agreement for the 20-year cooperation of the first ibis Styles hotel in Croatia to open in Rijeka in 2021, reports on May 27, 2019. 

“Ibis Styles is the world’s leading hotel chain known for its affordable rates that perfectly combines comfort and recognizable design. This well-known brand gives us great flexibility in building the personality of our hotel, whether it’s a cushion, a bathroom, a bar, or a complete interior design. We have room to tell the story of Rijeka through every detail. This product is still not in Croatia and we are confident that ibis Styles brings a new level of quality, energy, and hospitality to the markets of Rijeka and Croatia. That’s our ambition,” highlights a representative of the investor in Monday’s announcement.

Works on the ibis Styles Rijeka hotel should start before the end of this year and the investment will amount to 18.5 million euro. The hotel will have a total area of 14,969 square meters, with 150 rooms, of which 18 are family rooms, a modern bar, restaurant, four conference and meeting rooms, a wellness area and 115 parking spaces for hotel guests and citizens. 

The interior of the hotel will bring guests closer to the industrial heritage of Rijeka, the largest Croatian port and one of the most important ports of Southeast Europe. The new hotel will employ about 45 people to accommodate the first guests in the second half of 2021.

“We are excited that our partners have chosen the ibis Styles brand and us from Orbis and Accor for such a significant hotel project. Rijeka, as the largest port in Croatia, offers a robust business environment and relaxing facilities at the same time. We definitely see opportunities for development, not just in Rijeka and in the main city, but also the whole of Croatia,” said Frank Reul, head of the Orbis & Accor Group for Central and Eastern Europe.

Within a 20-minute walk from Korzo, a two-hour drive from Zagreb and well connected to the rest of the country by the highway and rail network, ibis Styles Rijeka will attract tourists and business visitors alike, according to the announcement.
