Deutsche Hospitality’s young Danish economy brand Zleep Hotels is to launch in Switzerland. Construction work on the new build Zleep Hotel Zurich Kloten is scheduled for completion in 2023. The hotel will be located in a new quarter near to Zurich Airport, which will also be home to a restaurant, retail outlets and privately owned apartments. There will be 90 rooms, a generously proportioned lobby complete with a breakfast area and a bar. The Zleep Hotel Zurich Kloten will also introduce the “Hygge Standard” to the Swiss hotel sector for the first time.
The scheme benefits from an easy access by the public and private transport and enjoys close proximity to Kloten railway station, which offers direct connections to both Zurich and Winterthur. The hotel will be operated by Santis Home AG of St. Gallen, which will act as a franchisee.
“It is fabulous that we are now able to present Zleep on the Swiss market,” said Thomas Willms, CEO of Deutsche Hospitality. “Santis 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.”
Rico Zindel, Managing Director and member of the Board of Directors 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.”
