Cox and Kings owned MEININGER Hotels signs an agreement for a MEININGER Hotel in Spain, which will be located on Gran Via in the south-west part of the city. The 186-room and 682-bed hotel is scheduled to open by the end of 2018.

The proposed hotel is ideally located in an important area of Barcelona at a main avenue of the city and connected to the city center as well as the airport by good access to public transportation.

The new-build property with a gross floor area of 6,044 sqm will feature 186 rooms and 682 beds; well-equipped with TV, free wifi and en-suite bathrooms all to a high specification.

Due to the flexible room concept of MEININGER the accommodation ranges from classic double rooms and private multiple-bed rooms to a bed in a dormitory. The basement area will offer underground parking for 50 cars.

All public spaces will be located on the ground floor, including a lobby, lounge, breakfast area and bar. Exceptional for a hotel but standard and typical for a MEININGER Hotel are the guest kitchen and the games zone, which will also be part of the common area. In the well-equipped guest kitchen customers can cook their own meals around the clock.

Peter Kerkar, Director, Cox & Kings Ltd says: “It’s a great pleasure to sign the agreement for our MEININGER hotel in Spain. With this project we enter a strategically important market which is a significant step for our expansion in Europe.”

MEININGER currently operates 16 hotels in 10 European cities. The unique hybrid concept of MEININGER is based upon combining the service and comfort of a hotel with the uncomplicated nature of a hostel: top locations, high-quality amenities, flexible room structure and reasonable prices. The MEININGER Hotel in Barcelona is an important addition to the growing portfolio of MEININGER.
