Malaysian co-living hotel brand heads to Australia

Australia: The 60-key Cititel X Sydney will open in the city’s Pyrmont district in early 2020.

Located in Murray Street, within a short walk of the CBD and International Convention Centre Sydney, the hotel will be the first Cititel X in Australia.

It will provide “an all-inclusive concept with snacks and refreshments included in the room rate and available throughout the day in the Guest Lounge and Pantry, which will sit on the ground floor”. .

The hotel will also feature a co-living experience, providing cooking utensils and equipment so guests can prepare meals if they decide they want to dine in-house.

Cititel X general manager Klaus Kinateder said: “Previous co-living projects have been developed out of former student accommodation and don’t offer the quality or facilities that international travellers, especially business travellers, are seeking. We’ve designed the hotel to meet the fastest-growing sector of the travel market. Cititel X is not about massive rooms or services that travellers don’t really want. What we are offering is a ‘home away from home’ style guest experience at great-value rates.”

“It will all be about connection, both through having co-living areas and the best high-speed wi-fi. It’s not just about satisfying millennials – it’s about meeting the demands of most travellers these days. There won’t be lengthy check-in and check-out processes because effectively once a guest arrives just about every service in the hotel is included in their rate. And we will continue to evolve according to changing guest needs,” he added.
