Mercure Székesfehérvár Magyar Király

From this summer, the legendary Hotel Magyar Király in Székesfehérvár joins Mercure portfolio under a franchise agreement.

Thanks to the agreement signed with the owner, Balance 99 Zrt., the group will franchise the unique historical four-star Hotel Magyar Király in the heart of Székesfehérvár, in the renewed historic area of the city.

The future Mercure Székesfehérvár Magyar Király will offer 79 rooms and 4 suites located over 2 floors. Guests can also benefit from a restaurant with an external terrace or the Wine Bar room made up of the original bricks of Szekesfehervar castle’s wall.

The classical-style palace, also called Zichy Palace was built at the beginning of the 1820s with the cooperation of Mihály Pollack. The palace has been a hotel since 1870, but after its nationalisation in 1949, it took on a different function. It was reopened as a hotel in 1958 and reverted to its original name in 1990.

During the years, the hotel has gone through several reconstructions and renovations, most recently in 2010. An important aspect of these developments was to ensure that, while retaining its original features, the hotel would meet all the needs of the 21st-century guest.

Each and every one of the upper-midscale hotels of Mercure brand is unique, but all share the same passion for high-quality services. They allow our guests to fully experience every destination at the very core, telling a story about the location and its cultural heritage. The project is a key opportunity for us to expand our regional network in Hungary and near Budapest.
