Singapore-based serviced residence and hotel company The Ascott Limited has opened a new aparthotel in Strasbourg.
Operated by the Aegide Group, the property is close to the European Enterprise Centre and about ten-minutes from the city centre.
The 166-apartment Citadines Eurometropole Strasbourg includes 137 studios and 29 one-bedroom apartments, all of which include fully equipped kitchens and 50-inch smart TVs with Chromecast.
When it comes to sustainability, environmentally friendly materials were prioritised during the construction of the hotel and features include an energy-saving lighting concept, a local recycling system and a bike rental service. The property’s decor has also drawn on the theme of nature, featuring a green wall in the lobby as well as a green roof terrace.
