Date: July 2020

Location: Zurich Airport, Switzerland

Name: Zleep Hotel Zurich Kloten – opening 2023

No. of Keys: 90

Seller:An entire quarter is being developed on the new hotel site in Zurich-Kloten. In addition to the Zleep Hotel, a restaurant of the Peking Garden brand is being developed there, as well as various shops and apartments. The developer is a conglomerate. Previously there was no hotel at this location.

Buyer: Deutsche Hospitality has signed its first site in Switzerland for its Zleep budget brand. The 90 room property will be constructed in Kloten, close to Zurich airport, for a 2023 opening.

The hotel will operate under a franchise agreement with operator Säntis Home AG. Currently, Zleep has 13 hotels operating, with Switzerland becoming the brand’s sixth European country presence.

Santis are a gastronomy company providing food services, since 1991…as a subsidiary of Santis Holding and are better known for their catering at Trade Fair halls.

The hotel will also be home to a restaurant, retail outlets and privately owned apartments. There will be 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.

Säntis Home AG runs the Holiday Inn Express Lucerne-Kriens with a total of 160 rooms. The Zleep Zürich Kloten will be their second hotel.

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.

“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 endeavour 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.”

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 are constantly seeking out new ways of avoiding food waste, reducing energy consumption, recycling materials and using more environmentally friendly products.

THPT Comment: Zleep is really motoring now, with this new hotel at Zurich Airport.
