Facility of the week

Famulus Training Hotel, University of West Hungary, Győr, Hungary

The objective of this project was twofold. First, the aim was to construct a sleek, modern facility for practical training in hospitality, which can accommodate businesspeople working in the industrial centre in the city of Győr. The Hotel Famulus meets the criteria of a 4-star hotel while allowing tourism students to undertake their internships. International students and teachers are accommodated in the hostel, which is rented out in the vacation period.

Second, the hotel was constructed as part of the urban development plans of the city of Győr. The brief prescribed a modern, new, airy building which fits well into a modern residential area. The area attracts many commercial customers as there is a shopping centre on the site with over 80 shops. The Hotel's restaurant is frequented by local residents and Városrét by employees and customers of the shopping center opposite the hotel. The Hotel Famulus maintains excellent contacts with other hotels in town and has signed contracts with partners sitting at the Spa Raba Gyor come Queller, Xantus Janos Zoo, The National Theatre of Győr and the Puppet Theatre Vaskakas. As the city does not have a conference hotel, many scientific and professional events are held there.

About this database

The OECD Centre for Effective Learning Environments (CELE) and the European Investment Bank (EIB) launched the “Database of Best Practices in Educational Facilities Investment” on 29 September 2011. It seeks to inform the planning, design, construction, management and evaluation of educational spaces, combining resources for strategic investment in educational infrastructure, with exemplary school and university facilities from all over the world.

Drawing on the output of a joint CELE/European Investment Bank project on “Strategic Investment Planning for Educational Infrastructure” and more than 60 exemplary schools and universities featured in CELE’s flagship publication, “Designing for Education: Compendium of Exemplary Educational Facilities 2011”, this database is a unique international resource for educators, designers, policymakers and researchers alike.

Users of the database are encouraged to add their own resource material, or submit new completed university or school projects for publication on the database. OECD and EIB welcome your input to our project!
