The Zleep Hotel chain will be opening a hotel in Aarhus next year, which is great news for budget travellers headed for the city.
Set to open in January 2014, the Zleep Hotel Aarhus will be strategically located near enough the highway, public bus lines, and commercial areas (Viby Centre).
The new Zleep Hotel will be housed in the current Hotel Mercur, a 3-star hotel in Viby Torv, and simply renovated to make its look more in line with the Zleep chain concept. Of course, management will also be handed over to the Zleep group. According to Zleep Hotels CEO Peter Haaber, the hotel in Aarhus is just part of their push to “expand and open hotels in all major cities in Northern Europe” and that “Aarhus was a clear priority in that sense.”
Located in the east side of Jutland, Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark and is gaining traction with tourists. As a university city, Aarhus attracts a younger crowd, which also means visitors that are on a tighter budget. This makes it an ideal location for a hotel targeting budget travelers. And with Zleep Hotel’s usual student discounts, their cheap hotel rooms will be even more attractive to student travelers. Of course, the hotel is also open to business travelers and regular tourists alike.
Right now, the Zleep Hotel chain has 6 hotels around Denmark, 2 of which are in Copenhagen City. Other hotels are located in Greater Copenhagen (Ballerup and Ishoj), Hamburg and Billund. There is also a Zleep Hotel Hamburg, Germany.
