After two years from the opening of IBB Erfurt Hotel in the heart of the old town in the capital of Thuringia, the IBB hotel group continues to expand in Germany. On July 1, 2008 the property in the Bavarian three-river city Passau which was managed before by Holiday Inn, was taken over by the international investment company Dawnay Day. Only one month afterwards the reknown hotel in the front of the main station opened its doors again.
"I am particularly proud that we have opened the second hotel in Germany. I see a large potential for the advanced expansion of our hotel chain. As a family run company we offer a personal and direct contact to the customer which differentiate us from other large-scale hotel enterprises. Professional employees with comprehensive experience in the hotel industry are the strongest capital for us" said Angel Llull - Managing Director of IBB Hotels in Poland and Germany, who is also personally responsible for quality trainings within the company.
The IBB Hotels group works efficiently to maintain high occupation level in the hotel, as well as to offer individual and guest-oriented service and the high quality standards. The IBB Hotel Passau is the second one of the several hotels planned in the Federal Republic.
Sven von der Heyden, chairman of the Von der Heyden Group and also the Managing President of the IBB Hotels Deutschland GmbH said to the conclusion of a contract: "We have developed an offensive growth plan for IBB Hotels, however we do not want to loose from our focus the parameters of reasonable management. With the IBB Hotel Passau we succeeded a further important step of the expansion in my homeland. IBB Hotels is the ideal partner for family-managed hotels which very often suffer from the successor problem. The short decision-making way, the human ressources as well as a professional yield management in our hotels distinguish us from many competitors ".
The IBB hotel Passau offers 129 comfortable rooms, the Restaurant König Ludwig, Bar Galeria, conference facilities with a capacity up to 300 persons and wellness area with swimming pool, sauna, relaxing room, pool bar and mini fitness studio.
