Ascott enters Eastern Europe with Citadines brand

17 Dec 2009

Ascott has entered the Eastern European market with the opening of Citadines Tbilisi at Freedom Square in Tbilisi, Georgia. This further consolidates its reputation as the world's largest serviced residence operator.

Partnering the Amtel Group of Companies to bring in the brand to one of the area’s top emerging hubs, Ascott is answering the demand for quality accommodation in good locations by international as well as intra-regional travellers. Citadines is particularly aimed at savvy and independent road warriors. The chain now boasts 54 Citadines properties, 43 of which are in Europe and the rest in Asia-Pacific.

The newest member is found in the heart of Georgia’s capital, Tbilsi. It's a 10-minute walk from the recently refurbished Old City with its heritage buildings, religious monuments and ancient sulphur bathouses which are still in operation. Nearby too are supermarkets and cafes.

Housed in an eight-storey building, the inventory consists of studios and two-bedroom apartments, all outfitted with fully equipped kitchens, ensuite bathrooms, home entertainment system and free broadband internet access. On the rooftop level are three meeting rooms and a fitness room.

To mark the launch is a promotional offer of US$107 per day for a studio and US$197 for two-bedroom apartment.
