“This new location complements our portfolio perfectly,” said Thomas Willms, CEO, Deutsche Hospitality. “We are seeing considerable tourist demand in the Czech capital. The Zleep Hotel will provide a cost-effective option in a prime location for business and leisure travellers alike.” The hotel will feature the Nordic design that is typical of the brand.
