Accor to open Mercure hotel in Alba Iulia in 2024
Hospitality group Accor said it would open a Mercure hotel in Alba Iulia, in central Romania, in the second quarter of 2024.
Mercure Alba Iulia Cetate will be the first hotel in Alba Iulia affiliated to an international chain, the company said.
The hotel will operate in the framework of a franchise contract with a local investor part of Dentotal Group. Accor already opened two hotels with this partner: Mercure Bucharest City Center in 2014 and ibis Styles Bucharest City Center in 2020.
Mercure Alba Iulia Cetate will have 112 rooms and suites on three floors plus an attic, a 282 sqm restaurant, a 430 sqm banquet area, a spa, playgrounds for children and parking areas.
The new hotel will be located on Dimitrie Cantemir Street, minutes away from the Alba Iulia Citadel and within walking distance of major touristic landmarks such as the Orthodox Cathedral of the Reunification, the Roman Catholic Cathedral, and the Unification Museum.
“Having a Mercure hotel on the map strengthens the attractiveness of the destination because it reassures both local and international guests that they will be enjoying the same quality services they are accustomed to across the world,” Maria Drăgulin, Accor Development Director for Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and the Czech Republic, said.
