Everbody was amazed to hear the good news, upon our declaration that in July we were going to open our brand new 4-star hotel at the foot of the Budapest Fair Trade Centre, the 160-roomed Expo Congress Hotel. The hotel opened its doors on the 24th July and is operating under soft opening since then. As it turned out, hardly anybody believed that in these difficult times anyone planning to open a hotel in Budapest, would make it on time. As a matter of fact, this is what happened in the case of  Expo Congress Hotel!
