Ibis Styles Bucharest City Center Hotel


Newly built Romanian hotel implements VingCard Signature RFID door locks and Visionline to maximize guest security and convenience while allowing for seamless upgrade to contactless digital check-in and room access abilities.


Located at the heart of Romania’s capital, ibis Styles Bucharest City center is a newly constructed property that seeks to cater to the modern traveler with its combination of both traditional and creative design. In addition to its 152 guestrooms, the hotel also serves as an urban village with areas designed to host community functions and celebrations.


As the first newly built Romanian hotel to open since the ongoing health crisis, ibis Style Bucharest City Center sought out a security access solution that could provide the highest level of security to boost guest confidence while still ensuring a hassle-free stay experience.


By selecting ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions and with the adoption of VingCard Signature RFID and its advanced data encryption abilities, hotel guests can be assured that only authorized individuals are able to gain room access. This includes Signature RFID’s anti-keycard cloning functionality that prevents unauthorized keycard duplicates from being created.

 With the additional implementation of Visionline, the hotel is further able to maximize security using the platform’s integration with Signature RFID to offer real-time security alerts for each lock. Examples include the ability to receive an alert for a wandering intruder attempting to use a keycard on multiple doors, with hotel staff able to instantly deactivate a flagged keycard before a security threat escalates. Employees can also receive an alert for a door that has been left ajar in order to swiftly dispatch personnel to investigate. While enhancing the property’s security abilities, Signature RFID and Visionline also work to provide guests with more convenient and faster service. This includes the ability for hotel staff to extend stays without the need for guests to physically visit the front desk in order to receive a new keycard. Employees can also carry out guestroom reassignment requests again without requiring the presence of guests at the front desk, increasing satisfaction while enhancing overall social distancing efforts.

Engineered as a future proof solution that equips hoteliers with the ability to affordably and effortlessly adapt to evolving industry trends, the presence of VingCard Signature RFID at the property allows for the instant activation of Mobile Access whenever desired. Once activated, Mobile Access can provide guests with the ability to digitally check-in using their own personal devices. This can serve as an alternative to having to wait in line at the front desk and risking exposure to viruses or bacteria by coming into close contact with other guests or staff. As a fully digital solution, Mobile Access also allows guests to use their own devices as a digital key to gain access to guestrooms and other hotel areas, further limiting exposure to germs by reducing interaction with shared surfaces.
