Awards and Qualifications
Since the grand opening of our hotel, it has been important to us to measure ourselves against others, to receive feedback on the quality of our work and the satisfaction of our guests through awards and qualifications.
The Friendliest Hotel of the Year
In “The Friendliest Hotel of the Year Competition” nearly 90,000 travelers voted on which hotel’s staff was the most attentive and friendly. Hotels entering into the competition could place in two categories, the ‘below 50 rooms’ and the ‘above 51 rooms’ categories, and more than 94,000 votes were cast for the hotels they liked.
Hungary’s tourism is strengthened by such competitions and the goal was to improve the image of hotel trade and hospitality. The authenticity of the hotel competition is demonstrated in the support of its initiative by many celebrities.

As a market-leading training and consulting company, Develor took up many cases in the past years in order to raise Hungary’s general training standards and professionalism so that the resulting values would be both measurable and palpable.
Hundreds of representatives of most of the companies purchasing training have nominated those hotels for this award that offer the best terms for company training, further vocational training and team building programs. Based on their votes, the Gold Star Training Venue Award was awarded to four hotels.

The Hotel of the Year competition is the pinnacle event of Hungary’s tourism. Hotels of rank compete in this competition. Szallas.hu, as the market-leading hotel agent portal in Hungary, bestows an award for the most distinguished level of quality within Hungarian tourism.
