Z Hotels, the boutique-budget hotel group with compact bedrooms in city-centre locations, is to open its sixth property in London's Shoreditch.
It will be the fourth hotel for the group in London, having launched its third earlier this week in Piccadilly. Launched in Soho in 2011, Z Hotels now also has properties in London's Victoria and Liverpool. A fifth is due to open in Glasgow next week.
Set to launch next year, the 107-bedroom Shoreditch hotel is being developed in a former office building within The Bower, a new mixed-use development for the Old Street area of the city.
It will feature some windowless bedrooms, but all will offer free Wi-Fi, 40in LED high-definition TVs with Sky Sports and Sky Movies, power showers in en suite wet rooms, organic fibre beds from the Natural Mat company and 100% lambs' wool duvets.
Earlier this year Z Hotels, which is owned and operated by Bev King, Rich Meehan, Jonathan Raymond and Jamie Goldstein, announced £4m of new funding from Santandar Corporate & Commercial to finance its expansion.
