MEININGER Hotels and Hirotani Projektgesellschaft mbH have signed a contract for a new hotel in Heidelberg. The hotel will be located at the Carl-Benz-street 4-6 close to the central station.
The opening of the first MEININGER hotel in Heidelberg is planned for the beginning of 2019 with a lease term of 20 years.
The new hotel will offer 336 beds in 100 rooms on 5 floors.
The old town and center is fast and easily accessible due to the walking friendly location close to central station and the excellent public transport connections. Within immediate proximity is the new district Bahnstadt with its numerous shopping possibilities.
Hannes Spanring, CEO of the MEININGER Group says: “We are very happy that we will open our new MEININGER hotel in such history-charged city. Especially with regard to the international meaning as university town is this location an outstanding addition not only to the MEININGER portfolio but as well for the entire Holidaybreak group.”
