Now that we have brought all the construction works and every detail to perfection, we invited our friends and partners to mark this moment with us. We shared a joyful and interesting evening with more than 300 guests, celebrating the beginning of the ibis Styles story in Bosnia. Same as our interior, our event was inspired by Sarajevo, a melting pot of the East and the West, tradition and trends.
On the occasion of Independence day of Bosnia and Herzegovina, we decided to let the ibis Styles tower shine in colors of the Bosnian flag.
Happy Independence day!
We have spent the AccorHotels Solidarity week 2018 in a common action with our colleagues from Tarčin Forest Resort – MGallery by Sofitel aimed to support the “Debra BiH Association of people affected by disease Epidermolysis bullosa”.
Kids suffering from this serious, rare skin disease are called “butterfly children” since their skin is especially fragile. Except for the financial support, we were telling their story to the world one week long – wearing “Debra T-shirts” in order to get people involved to help.
As of November the 15th 2018, the brand new hotel tower of ibis Styles Sarajevo opens its door. The construction works on 112 new rooms, lobby area, restaurant and cafe are finished, so the hotel officially started to operate under the name ibis Styles, one of the fast growing AccorHotels brands. Further reconstruction works on the old part of the former hotel Sarajevo building, including the renovation of 69 existing rooms is expected to be finished by the End 2018. The total investment in the project led by Tareq Hospitality Ltd. was round 15 million Euro, while the ibis Styles team consists of 70 employees.
ibis Styles Sarajevo is new, stylish city hotel located close to the International Airport and the city center of the Capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Offering services carefully set up to energize its guests in a healthy way, this non-smoking hotel serving exclusively healthy dishes and virgin drinks is the perfect place to experience the energetic vibe of Sarajevo.
Inspired by Sarajevo’s cultural diversity and its winter sports tradition, ibis Styles Sarajevo does make the contrasts play! The unique melting pot of traditional and modern designs elements are combined with a subtle, relaxing simplicity. Warmth of wooden finishes and eastern wool textures meet the cold of white ceilings, raw concrete, modern furnishings and neon lights. Bright, colorful wallpapers, imaginative motifs of Olympic mascot “Vucko” and names of the facilities such as “1984 restaurant” or “Igman hall” revive memories of the Winter Olympics ’84.
Intriguing and courageously placed details make the hotel interior even more interesting – in the rooms, vintage skis hanging on the wall right beside a high-tech LCD placed on a frame of traditional Bosnian rug. Above the shelter, neon lamp shaped as a greeting a la Sarajevo “Vozdra”. Lamps made of skis above the sharing table suddenly evolve in shiny hanging snowboards up cycled into swings in front of the reception.
By the end of 2018, after finishing the reconstruction of the complete building, the hotel will offer 181 rooms in total, conference venues with a maximum capacity of 800 persons, state of the art Wellness center and all day long dining option in the hotel restaurant, cafe and sky bar.
As we are getting closer to our opening date, our show room is presented to the medias!
