The opening of a Campanile hotel in Bydgoszcz, the 7th largest city of the country, is a milestone for the company: the 117-rooms hotel will be the 10th hotel of the brand in Poland. As a 3-stars hotel, it boasts an excellent location on the citys main artery, Jagiellonska Avenue and modern infrastructures and services such as a restaurant, a lounge bar and two fully equipped meeting rooms.
The Group will also open two Golden Tulip hotels in Gdansk and Krakow, less than two years after its launch in Poland:
The Golden Tulip Gdansk Residence will be situated in a great location close to the sea. The infrastructures and services will include a restaurant, a bar, conference rooms, a swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, a sauna and a wellness area. The property is developed by Qualia, one of Louvre Hotels Groups key partners in Poland.
The Golden Tulip hotel in Krakow also enjoys a central location, in the Old Town, a few meters from the famous Market Square (a UNESCO World Heritage listed site). It will offer 86 rooms, a restaurant and a bar as well as a meeting room dedicated to business customers.
These three new openings represent a growth of 30 % in Louvre Hotels Groups portfolio in Poland. At the end of July, the Group will manage 16 hotels in Poland, representing 1,900 rooms.
These hotels will reinforce Louvre Hotels Groups budget segment presence in the country and underline its ambition to become a top-tier Group in the midscale and upscale segments. By adding two new cities to its portfolio (Gdansk and Bydgoszcz), Louvre Hotels Group will be the first and unique international operator present in all top-10 Polish cities.
Matthieu Evrard, Chief Development Officer of Louvre Hotels Group said: With these new openings, Louvre Hotels Group confirms its position as one of the most active and dynamic hotel chains in Poland. The Group is also developing in neighbouring countries and will open its first hotels in Donetsk, Ukraine, and in Vilnius, Lithuania, in the 4th quarter of 2013.
