The International Travel Awards competition received more than 3,000 entries from all over the world, and altogether 500 entrants could make it to the finals, where the competition jury awarded 200 entrants with a prize in each category.

We are very happy for the recognition, considering that the outcome reflects the decision of a jury making up of internationally recognised experts, and, also, our guests could tell their opinion by means of voting during the process, which is a direct feedback for us”, said Zoltán Somlyai, head of the hotel division of BDPST Group.
