Hotel chain sets eyes on Cardiff

November 7, 2017 by  

A new hotel may be built in the centre of Cardiff, after easyHotel – a company that operates a chain of budget hotels throughout the United Kingdom – announced plans to open one in the Welsh capital.

Should these plans get the necessary permission, the hotel would cost £8 million to build. The chosen site is currently home to a block of offices, but these would be knocked down so that this purpose built facility can be constructed in their place. It is hoped that the hotel could potentially be set up and ready for use within two years.

It would be located in Fitzalan Place and feature 120 bedrooms. The price of a room within an easyHotel can be as low as £20 per night, although there are additional charges for items such as a television.

At the moment, the firm has five hotels located across the UK, as well as a further 20 franchised ones. It has a sixth location due to launch in Liverpool and plans for four more next year. The firm’s chief executive, Guy Parsons, told Wales Online:

“We expect easyHotel Cardiff to attract a variety of leisure and business customers and look forward to being part of the city’s ongoing growth and success.”

When companies decide to set up in a new location, brochure printers are often called upon to showcase their services.
