FRANKFURT AM MAIN, GERMANY—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. Transport links will be very good thanks to the presence of a public car park in the same part of the building and the direct proximity of Kloten railway station, which offers direct connections to both Zurich and Winterthur. The hotel will be operated by Säntis Home AG of St. Gallen, which will act as franchisee.
“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 endeavor 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.”
Switzerland will become the sixth European country to open a Zleep Hotel after Denmark, Sweden, Germany, the Czech Republic and Spain. A total of 13 Zleep hotels are currently operational. Zleep Hotels represent quality, service and Nordic design at affordable prices. Comfortable beds and bed linen, free fast Wi-Fi, flat screen TV’s, high-end showers and an organic breakfast buffet are further feel-good factors which enhance every stay. Zleep Hotels is constantly seeking out new ways of avoiding food waste, reducing energy consumption, recycling materials and using more environmentally friendly products.
