The BDPST Group, a company associated with István Tiborcz, the prime minister’s son-in-law, strengthened its position in the international hotel market. They bought two ski hotels with 43 and 91 rooms in Austria that are owned by Lőrinc Mészáros, the wealthiest Hungarian.
According to mfor.hu, the BDPST Group continued its dynamic expansion in the hotel sector by buying two hotels in the Murau ski region in Austria. The owner of the purchaser is István Tiborcz, PM Orbán’s son-in-law.
The BDPST Group entered the international market in July. They operate the Hotel Atrio del Mart (84 rooms) in Los Alcazares, Murcia region, Spain. Afterwards, Austria got into their focus.
However, the BDPST Group does not run the hotels. They have a subsidiary company for that purpose, the BDPST Hotel Management founded this month.
Based on their plans, they will reopen the two new hotels in December.
The four-star Relax Hotel is near a ski slope and has 91 rooms. There are restaurants, bars, conference rooms, bike rentals, a parking lot, and a wellness section. Meanwhile, the four-star Alpenblick Hotel is one of the first hotels in the city. It has 43 family rooms, all renewed in 2019. It provides all the services mentioned before. Furthermore, it has an outer and an inner swimming pool, a sauna world, salt rooms, and playrooms for kids as well.
Both of them are currently closed, but the management works for their reopening.
The direct owner of the hotels is the BDPST MU-RAU Ltd., a company founded on October 4. Before, it belonged to Hunguest Hotels owned by Lőrinc Mészáros, the wealthiest Hungarian, a former gas-fitter, and a good friend of PM Viktor Orbán, living in the same small village as the prime minister.
