NYX brand to make UK debut in Edinburgh

UK: Israeli hotel company Fattal Hotels will invest £32 million in an Edinburgh development which will see the first UK NYX hotel and an existing Jurys Inn hotel expanded.

Fattal has acquired the site on Jeffrey Street and plans to add a 131-room NYX hotel, 31 new residential units, and significant investment in the existing 186-room Jurys Inn, which could include the addition of up to 101 rooms.

Fattal, in partnership with Swedish hotel company Pandox, bought the Jurys Inn chain in December 2017. It also owns the Leonardo Hotels portfolio.

NYX Hotels, named after the Greek goddess of the night, is a lifestyle brand which has properties in Tel Aviv, Herzliya, Munich, Milan, Madrid and Prague.

Jason Carruthers, managing director of Jurys Inn, said: “We are pleased to have acquired the freehold of our very successful Jurys Inn Edinburgh hotel and the adjacent site, which will allow us to transform the site and significantly enhance our product offering and overall capacity in Edinburgh.”

“Our Edinburgh hotel already runs at over 95 per cent occupancy and the acquisition of the freehold there puts us in a strong position to capitalise on the ongoing influx of tourists to the vibrant city of Edinburgh and to leverage the prime location of our hotel and the adjacent site, which we look forward to developing,” he added.
