We’re steadily putting the pedal to the metal on our European expansion. Today, we’re thrilled to announce our first property in Germany – The Student Hotel Berlin.
Berlin is one of the largest student cities in Europe, so naturally we couldn’t resist! Over 165.000 students attending 31 universities will have a chance to join our family of travellers, adventurers and general bon vivants. There will be 456 rooms over eight floors, covering more than 17,000 square meters. That’s includes an inner courtyard for BBQs, where exciting new friendships are forged over food and drinks.
The Student Hotel Berlin will find its home in the Alexanderquartier, a modern transit junction and hotspot for development in Berlin’s Mitte district. But we’re not stopping there! We’re bringing our student spirit to university cities across Germany, actively seeking opportunities in Hamburg, Munich, Bremen, Frankfurt and Cologne.
Our first property in the German capital is being developed as a joint venture with Triton Development GmbH, the investment adviser to the European Student Housing Fund. The construction is set to start in 2017, with the expected opening in summer 2019.
