Okko opens boutique Hotel in Strasbourg
Strasbourg, France – 15 November 2017 –
Okko Hotels Strasbourg is an integral component in the redevelopment of the Presqu’île Malraux district. As part of the broader Eurométropole project, this former area of port wasteland has been given a new lease of life – both economically and culturally – following the opening of the Cité de la Musique et de la Danse, the André Malraux media library, the Rivétoile shopping centre and the UGC Ciné Cité cinema complex.
Overseen by the real estate investment group Icade, the Black Swans development is contributing three more buildings to this urban regeneration project, including the 120- room Okko Hotels Strasbourg. The hotel, designed by architect Anne Demians, stands proudly at the foot of the Winston Churchill tram station. Visitors arriving by train can therefore easily reach the hotel in twenty minutes from the city SNCF railway station.
- Number of guestrooms: 120
- Total floor area: 3,600 m2
- Developer: Icade
- Architecture: Anne Demians
- Interior design: Studio Norguet Design
Although Okko Hotels Strasbourg may boast 120 rooms, eight of which offer premium accommodation, the true heart of the establishment is its Club area. The brainchild of Patrick Norguet, this vast space offers nearly 350 square metres of area on the first floor. It includes numerous spaces in which to work or relax, in addition to a business corner, a boutique store and a meeting room (available to hire).
Open to guests around the clock, the atmosphere in the Club is both relaxed and convivial. As at the rest of the group’s hotels, the rates at Okko Hotels Strasbourg all include breakfast, hot and cold drinks, snacks throughout the day, and an apéritivo served every evening at 7 p.m.
The hotel favours local suppliers, meaning guests will be introduced to beers from Brasserie Perle, cheese products from Fromagerie Haxaire, yoghurts from La Ferme de Climont, sweet treats from L’Alsacienne de Biscuiterie, coffees from Reck and jams from La Ferme Ulrich.
