Vienna House, Austria’s largest hotel group, has signed the lease agreement for a new hotel, scheduled to open in early 2018, under the Vienna House Easy brand in the centre of Leipzig.
Vienna House signed the lease agreement with BERKOM Grundstücks GmbH & Co. Hotels Leipzig am Brühl KG at the end of March, giving the go-ahead for the extensive renovations to the existing object, formerly a Novotel, in the centre of Leipzig.
“Leipzig is one of Germany’s most exciting cities, with an interesting cultural scene, great clubs, impressive architecture, a lively city centre and a creative student community,” stated Rupert Simoner, CEO of Vienna House. “The smart and casual concept of Vienna House Easy makes a perfect match for the city and I am very pleased that the next step in our expansion is now taking us to Leipzig.”
The new Vienna House Easy Leipzig features 206 rooms, including eleven suites and four family rooms. The lobby is a combination of bar, living room and meeting spaces for locals, guests and city tourists. The culinary offerings promise a mix of Viennese coffeehouse tradition coupled with a casual, relaxed atmosphere.
Further facilities include a 180 square metre ballroom, two conference rooms (56 and 38 square metres) as well as an open meeting room. The hotel also features an outdoor terrace offering a colourful mix of lounge, coffeehouse and hanging furniture.
The rooms have been created with functionality in mind providing high-quality facilities, newly renovated bathrooms and modern furnishings. The rest of the hotel fits with the Vienna House Easy brand offering a range of self-service and luxury facilities, including a spacious fitness centre on the eighth floor with views across the city.
State-of-the-art technology is utilised to benefit guests, with online check-in, a mobile concierge and high-speed WiFi as well as a dedicated team of staff on hand to welcome guests.
