Accor has teamed up with the Minimax group to open the first Mercure hotel in Kosovo. Due to open this year, the Mercure Prishtina City represents a major milestone for the local hotel industry.
The hotel features 75 modern rooms, a restaurant, lobby bar, spacious lounge and fully-equipped meeting rooms. Guests can also take advantage of the wellness club.
The hotel is part of a larger investment by the Minimax Group, which includes the Minimax shopping center, just 50 meters away, and a modern residential area called Minimax City. This integrated complex offers guests a complete experience, with stores, restaurants and residential facilities close to the hotel.
Pristina, the capital, is a vital center for businessmen, diplomats and tourists. The Mercure Prishtina City is strategically located in an area occupied by embassies and close to the city's new business center. Pristina International Airport is just a 20-minute drive from the hotel.
The collaboration between Accor and Minimax Group aims to make the Mercure Prishtina a destination of choice for business travellers and tourists visiting Kosovo. Thanks to Accor's expertise and Minimax Group's local market experience, this partnership should strengthen both parties' position in the region and enrich Pristina's hotel scene.
"We are delighted to be working with the Minimax Group on this project. The partnership with our esteemed local partner reflects Accor's commitment to expanding its presence in the Balkans. The Mercure Prishtina City impresses with its striking style, facilities and prime location. We are confident that this partnership will contribute significantly to our ambitious growth in the region and offer our guests an unrivalled experience in the heart of Pristina." - Dilek Sezer, Business Development Director - Accor Premium, Midscale & Economy Brands - Southeast Europe
