Hospitality group Accor announces the recent signing of a management agreement with Amera Group, in the presence of Calin Ile, former president of the Federation of the Romanian Hotel Industry, for the opening of a new ibis Styles hotel in Cluj. The property will be the first hotel operated by Accor in Cluj, Romania’s second most important city, and it is scheduled to open in April 2025.

ibis Styles Cluj will offer 110 rooms, including family rooms and rooms for guests with disabilities. The hotel will also include a restaurant, a standalone concept developed by Accor, committed to serve local and international food, looking to receive residents living in the neighborhood and people working in the offices nearby. The hotel will also host a large multipurpose conference room where both corporate and social events can be organized.

The hotel will be positioned close to Amera Tower Business Center, in the north-west part of the city, between two industrial parks, West Industrial Area and Tetarom I. Located outside the urban agglomeration, easily accessible by public transportation, the hotel will enjoy direct access to European Route E81. The location is only 7 km away from the city center, and 5 km from Cluj Arena, home to the main sports and entertainment events in Cluj Napoca.
