Switzerland: Deutsche Hospitality has signed its first site in Switzerland for a 90-bed Zleep hotel, scheduled to open in 2023.
Located close to Zurich airport, the property will be operated by Säntis Home AG under a franchise agreement.
The Zleep Hotel Zurich Kloten marks the brand’s sixth European country presence.
“It is fabulous that we are now able to present Zleep on the Swiss market,” said Thomas Willms, CEO of Deutsche Hospitality. “Säntis AG will be an ideal strategic partner as we endeavour to further expand the potential of the Zleep brand in Switzerland over the coming years.”
The hotel will comprise a restaurant, a bar, retail outlets, as well as privately owned apartments. Zleep will introduce the “Hygge Standard” to the Swiss hotel sector for the first time.
Rico Zindel, managing director at Säntis Home AG, added: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to establish and develop the new Zleep brand in Switzerland. We have already viewed a number of other project locations and hope that we will soon be running more than one Zleep hotel in the country. The good cooperation we have enjoyed with Deutsche Hospitality has now finally borne fruit in the form of this initial undertaking.”
Zleep Hotels is a budget brand with 13 hotels in operation. Its latest opening was the Zleep Hotel Copenhagen Arena.
