NH Hotels expands portfolio in the Czech Republic
Saturday 3, July 2010
NH Hotels opens the NH Olomouc Congress hotel in Moravia, Czech Republic. The new NH Olomouc Congress Hotel is the second NH Hotel to be opened within the Czech Republic; however it is the first of the chain to be operating under a new management agreement.
The new hotel includes a wide range of entertainment features and a comprehensive wellness and health centre - the Omega Sport Center - which has 13 tennis, badminton and squash courts, golf facilities, as well as providing fitness and maintenance programmes in its gymnasium and a fully equipped spa area with a water area, sauna and Turkish bath. The NH Olomouc Congress hotel restaurant 'Sal de Mar' can also offer excellent cuisine from Petr Zucek, who has already achieved two Michelin stars for his restaurant in London. The new menu combines international cuisine, with traditional Spanish tapas and many of the best recipes from around the region.
The NH Olomouc Congress Hotel is located just a short walk from the medieval centre of what is regarded as being the prettiest city in Moravia containing the second largest collection of historic monuments in the Czech Republic. Highlights include the City Council building, the Gothic Cathedral of Saint Wenceslas and the Column of the Holy Trinity, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Olomouc has had a rich religious and political past and was one of the first Jesuit missions in Central Europe. This provides a city with a genuine catalogue of artistic and cultural treasures. Its large university population also makes it a young, bustling city, with shops and clubs of a kind usually only to be found in the most cosmopolitan of cities.
The combined functionality of its 137 modern and comfortably furnished rooms or suites, large number of convention rooms and location within the heart of the bustling Moravian city's business centre should make this hotel ideal for both tourism and business.
Consistently with the NH Hotels environmental strategy and in accordance with its slogan "Wake Up to a Better World", this new Czech hotel has been designed and works in a highly environmentally aware way.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
