Meininger to open a hotel in Glasgow, United Kingdom

Cox & Kings-owned Meininger Hotels and investor LGIM Real Assets have signed an agreement for a hotel in Glasgow, scheduled to open in 2020. It will be located on West George Street opposite Queen Street Train Station and will offer 160 rooms and 590 beds. This will be Meininger Group’s second hotel in the UK. It already operates a hotel in London since 2006. Hannes Spanring, CEO, Meininger Hotels, says, “Great Britain is a very important market for us and Glasgow as Scotland’s largest city is the perfect location for another Meininger hotel in the UK. The Glasgow hotel is an excellent addition to our portfolio, due to its prime location in the heart of the city centre.” The room types will range from classic double rooms through private multi-bed rooms to beds in a dorm room. The public areas include reception, lobby, lounge, breakfast room and bar as well as a guest kitchen and game zone. At basement, ground and mezzanine levels, the scheme will also create around 1400 sqm of new retail space. Due to its proximity to the train station, the hotel is well connected to both local and long-distance destinations, with trains running to the north of Scotland and to Edinburgh, which can easily be reached within 40 minutes. The nearest underground station is also just 160 meters from the hotel.

The existing building and the former ibis Leipzig City (Germany) from the Accor Group which was closed in March 2016 will be converted in accordance with MEININGER standards and will ultimately have 404 beds available in 126 rooms. The hotel is located in the centre of Leipzig and is the perfect starting point from which to explore the city. Owing to its proximity to the main station, the hotel can be easily reached on public transport. The flexible room structure of MEININGER Hotels means that the accommodation options will range from traditional double rooms through private rooms with multiple beds right down to a bed in a shared dorm room. All the public spaces, such as the lobby, lounge, bar, breakfast room and terrace will be located on the ground floor of the building, as will the guest kitchen and games zone, which are also typical features of a MEININGER hotel. In the well-equipped guest kitchen customers will be able to prepare their own meals at any time, day or night. Moreover, the kitchen will also have a washing machine and a dryer. Peter Kerkar, Director, Cox & Kings, says, “This hotel in Leipzig will strengthen our portfolio of hotels in Germany where we have a presence in five other cities.
