Radisson Blu moves into Algeria


Carlson Rezidor has announced its first project in Algeria – the Radisson Blu Hotel, Algiers Hydra is scheduled to open early in 2015.

“We are delighted to arrive in Algeria – a country with considerable growth potential where we aim to further strengthen the presence of our core brands Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson,” said Wolfgang Neumann, President and CEO of Rezidor.

Less than 20 kilometres from Algiers’ international airport, the upper upscale Radisson Blu Hotel, Algiers Hydra will be located in the Hydra Commune, part of the “Heights of Algiers”, which is considered the wealthiest part of the Algerian capital and shelters the majority of the foreign embassies, ministries and universities.

Besides 138 rooms with Radisson Blu signature services such as free high-speed Internet access, the hotel will offer a 315m2 all-day dining restaurant, a 200m2 lobby bar, as well as 380 square metres of meeting and conference facilities and a wellness and fitness centre.
