Staycity forges ahead in France with two key openings

Leading aparthotel operator, Staycity is putting France firmly in its sights with the announcement of two premises opening in the country in 2017.

Staycity already operates an aparthotel in the busy and popular 10th district of Paris, minutes from the Gare de Paris-Est transport hub, and will add Staycity Marseille to its portfolio when it opens for business in February 2017. The property, based in Marseille’s popular historical Vieux Port, will offer 108 apartments.

In Spring 2017 Staycity will open in Lyon in a purpose-built, 144-unit development in the city centre, within walking distance of the historic old centre and 10-minutes from the main business hub and train station.

“France has long been a mainstay in our expansion plans and we hope to add further properties in strategic sites in the coming years,” commented Staycity CEO Tom Walsh.

“These properties and our existing premises in Paris, provide us with a firm base in France, which will help build our reputation as the go-to aparthotel operator for both leisure and business travellers.”

Staycity premises opening in the UK over the next 12 months include Manchester (182), London Covent Garden (106) and Liverpool (202).

Staycity Aparthotels now has over 3,000 apartments across eight major cities across the UK and Europe with expansion plans which will take it to 15,000 apartments by 2021.
