On 8 of March, near the Fisherman’s Bastion, hotel Hilton Budapest hosted the most important event of hotel industry in Hungary. 21 hotels competed for the “Hotel of the Year” award. The prize is awarded in 5 categories; the road to the top is paved with serious conditions. Those who decide to compete have to undertake that professionals go through their numbers and achievements of the previous period with a magnifying glass.
Having great economical results is not enough to stay in the competition. Opinions and ratings of guests appearing on websites, as well as the innovative activities and social engagement of the company are also taken into account during the evaluation. They are investigating the human resource policies the hotel uses to create appealing conditions for employees in this quite difficult industry.
Last but not least, hotels were also visited by a secret tester who examined from a guest’s point of view how the abovementioned factors work in reality.
President of the Hungarian Hotel & Restaurant Association, Tamás Flesch, and Deputy CEO of the Hungarian Tourism Agency, Dávid Farkas greeted the participants of the gala dinner and the competitors. The winners were announced by the president of the jury, Andrea Kopócsy.

“The best part is the spa and wellness / swimming pool area where my whole family enjoyed themselves so much. Our 4-year-old son spent over 3 hours there every day. The saunas are world class. My wife and I took turns and each of us enjoyed the pleasure of relaxation in the adult only area. ”
