A Liverpool building which was abandoned for more than 30 years is now offering 17 serviced apartments by Epic Apart Hotel.
The property is situated in the RopeWalks area of the city and brings the company's occupancy in Liverpool to 35 apartments and studios offering 200 beds.
Epic Apart Hotel has invested £800,000 in acquiring and transforming the building, which was previously owned by Levy Estates, and said it has sensitively preserved many of the original features.
Simon Beer, who owns and operates Epic with his wife, Fiona, said: "We are delighted to open 75 Duke Street, which we think is a great addition to the city's accommodation offer. The new property is ideal for groups and families who want more than what a hotel can offer them, at a price that's within their budget. We've also launched our new ePod concept within the building, which are smaller rooms that are perfect for the solo corporate traveller and weekend couple looking for a quality, yet affordable place to stay.
"We've already received amazing feedback about Duke Street from our customers, which is encouraging. And of course seeing our existing properties on Seel and Campbell Street continue to prosper on Trip Advisor is just the icing on the cake."
General manager Paris D'Allessandro added: "Liverpool's hotel landscape is constantly evolving and improving, so we are proud to bring something new to the table."
Epic Apart Hotel said it was looking to expand further both in and beyond Liverpool.
