MEININGER Hotels has signed a contract securing the hotel group’s operation of a former 434-bed hostel in Venice Mestre under a lease agreement. The opening of the property on behalf of the MEININGER Hotels Group is planned for the second half of 2022.
MEININGER Hotels is actively moving ahead with its growth plans in existing markets: as recently as January 2022, the hotel group opened its fourth property in France; in Germany, its largest market with 13 properties, two new openings are planned this year, in Bremen and Dresden.
After Milan and Rome, Venice is the third location for MEININGER Hotels in Italy. In the southern European country, the hotel group’s bed volume will grow to more than 1,000 beds after the opening of the Venetian property. After taking over the seven-story building only minor adjustments will be required before the opening in mid-2022. ” The building is in very good condition, and we are taking over a majority of the furniture in the guest rooms and public areas, while refreshing the concept with our unique MEININGER style,” explains Ajit Menon, CEO of MEININGER Hotels.
“We would like to particularly thank the owners of the building, Deka Immobilien for their trust in MEININGER Hotels for this new adventure and look forward to building a long and fruitful partnership with them.” says Nicolas Capelle, Vice-President Development and Asset Management of MEININGER Hotels.
With a total floor area of 4,500 square meters, the building offers 434 beds and 112 rooms, including double rooms as well as multi-bed rooms for up to six people, which can either be used privately by families or groups, or shared among guests traveling alone. “The previous hostel was among the most famous accommodations for young group travelers and backpackers in Venice Mestre. We will continue to remain attractive for these target groups whilst enhancing our guest mix. Families and business travelers will also certainly feel at home here,” says Ajit Menon, CEO of MEININGER Hotels.
As in other MEININGER hotels, the Venice location will also feature a guest kitchen, game zone, washer and dryer, as well as a bar and spacious public areas.
