Easyhotel has officially entered the Welsh market, opening its doors to a new hotel in central Cardiff.
The 116-bedroom hotel is located a “stone’s throw” from the city’s main attractions, and is also a five-minute walk from Cardiff Queen railway station, as well as a 15-minute walk from Cardiff Castle.
The new hotel has created 10 new jobs in the area and marks the latest hotel development in the easyHotel group’s “ambitious” expansion plan. It takes the total number of easyHotels to 41 across the UK and Europe.
Neil Fidler, digital marketing manager at EasyHotel said: “It is absolutely thrilling to be opening our first ever hotel in Wales in this vibrant, culture-rich city. Wales is famous for some of the best things in life and has so much to offer, from nail-biting rugby matches to some of the world’s most impressive coastlines as well as world-renowned music and food festivals.
“We can’t wait to start welcoming guests to this fantastic city once restrictions have lifted and life slowly starts getting back normal.”
Councillor Russell Goodway, cabinet member for Investment and Development, said: “I am delighted to welcome easyHotel to Cardiff. This investment will help bring more tourism and businesses to the area as well as providing jobs and opportunities for local residents.”
