Breda, 4th March, 2010 – The new construction project of the Apollo Hotel Breda City Centre was officially opened on Thursday March 4th, 2010 with the outgoing Councillor Willems sabering a bottle of champagne. The hotel is located directly adjacent to the Central Station in Breda and is the first property delivered by NS within Via Breda: the largest project that Breda has ever carried out.

“After the hotel was taken over by Apollo Hotels & Resorts, at the beginning of 2007, a lot of things have changed: there’s a different name, a new organisation, the renovation of the entire ground floor and the construction of a new hotel wing. It is fittingly a top hotel in the centre of Breda. It feels really special to be able to share today with customers, clients and colleagues”, says the hotel’s proud Operations Manager, Natasja Visser.

Paul Rutte, Development Director at NS: “With their presence, hotel guests and business people bring more vitality to the area around our station which fits right in with the image that the municipality and NS want to create”.

During the official opening the link between the Apollo Hotel Breda City Centre and Nederlandse Spoorwegen was pointed out. Robert Teulings, Regional Director for Apollo Hotels & Resorts was given an appropriate gift by NS: a tiimetable with current information for train travellers.
