A Mellow Mood Hotels szállodalánc tagja, az Atrium Fashion Hotel 2017. május 10-én születésnapi koktélpartyval
ünnepelte 10. születésnapját a meghívott partnerek, szakmai szervezetek képviselői körében.

Az estet a szálloda igazgatónője, Gólya Edina nyitotta meg, őt követte Kovács István, az MSZÉSZ főtitkárának ünnepi
beszéde, majd az Atrium Fashion Hotelt 10 évvel ezelőtt megnyitó igazgatónő, Schwindt-Kiss Andrea számolt be az
egybegyűlteknek az akkori nyitásról, illetve a szálloda és a Mellow Mood Hotels elmúlt évtizedéről és a cégcsoport jelenéről.

Az est folyamán stand-up fellépőt és látványos fényshow-t láthatott a közönség, majd a szálloda születésnapi tortája
és tombola várta a vendégeket.

Az Atrium Fashion Hotel 10 évvel ezelőtt, 2007. március 17-én nyitotta meg kapuit az Mellow Mood Hotels első 4 csillagos
szállodájaként. Az új szálloda egyúttal egy új brand születését is jelentette. A Fashion Hotels brand specifikusan Mellow Mood Hotels
koncepció és olyan trendi, kozmopolita belsőépítészeti design elemekkel, magas minőségű felszereltséggel, a legmagasabb
technikai színvonalon kivitelezett szállodákat fémjelez, amelyek nagyon kedvező fogadtatásra találtak a vendégek és a szakmai
körében is.

Olyan egyedi, merész és különleges látványelemekkel bír a most 10 éves szálloda, mint az egykori tűzfalon működő hatalmas
óramutatók és a soha meg nem álló inga, amelyek ma is ámulatra késztetik a szálloda átriumába belépőket. A falon látható
hatalmas, bordázott, síkból kiemelkedő „A” betű pedig ma már a szálloda szimbólumává vált. 

Az Atrium Fashion Hotel 2007 óta több, mint 100.000 vendéget fogadott, akik 285.000 vendégéjszakát töltöttek ott. A szálloda
az elmúlt években egyre javuló mutatószámokkal rendelkezik, a 2016-os évet kiemelkedően magas foglaltsággal zárta.

Az Atrium Fashion Hotel mellett a Mellow Mood Hotels is jubileumot ünnepel ebben az évben, a cégcsoport 20 éve van jelen a
budapesti szállodapiacon és jelenleg 12 szálláshellyel rendelkezik, amelyek között hostel, 3 és 4 csillagos szállodák -  köztük
az Év Szállodája 2016 cím birtokosa, a Buda Castle Fashion Hotel  - és az 5 csillagos Buddha-Bar Budapest Klotild Palace található.
Több új projekt is folyamatban van, ezek közül a következő szállodanyitás a Parisi Udvar felújítása után az épületben megnyíló
új 5 csillagos szállodáé lesz, amelyet már most hatalmas érdeklődés övez mind a szakma, mind a nagyközönség részéről.

Mellow Mood Hotels hosted disadvantaged children 2017-04-07

As a request by the Hungarian Baptist Aid, Mellow Mood Hotels sponsored the “Cultural trip to Budapest” programme, which is organized for disadvantaged children.

Coming from Nagyhalász (Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county), they participated in this programme between 07-09 March and visited the famous sights of Budapest.


The elementary school students (10-14-year-old) and their teachers stayed at the Marco Polo Top Ho(s)tel, where we offered half board catering. Atlas City Hotel and Expo Congress Hotel also took part by providing the equipment and dishes for the dinner. The children had the opportunity to go on sightseeing by boat and bus as well, thanks to our excellent partner City Sightseeing - Mr. Nilsz Ltd.


As the children came from families living in difficult conditions, we wanted to support them with material donation in addition to the nice experiences. The kids got sport bags including sport equipment, stationeries and sweets; for the families we prepared food packages containing preservable food. The fundraising organized amongst our colleagues, was also very successful and we collected many useful things which were also delivered to Nagyhalász.
