Motel One eyes Dublin

Motel One, the European low-cost boutique hotel chain, is actively looking at the Irish market and expects to open at a location in Dublin soon.
Founded by Dieter Müller in Munich in 2000, the company, which opened its first hotel in Offenbach, near Frankfurt, now operates 56 h


otels with 15,165 rooms across Germany, Austria, the UK, Belgium, Czech Republic, Netherlands and Switzerland.
Although the company initially focused on opening design-led budget hotels near urban centres, it soon changed strategy to concentrate on hotels that were in central locations in many of Europe’s biggest cities.
The company offers flat rates for hotel rooms rather than fluctuating day-to-day prices.
Still run by Mr Müller and his wife Ursula Schelle-Müller, Motel One intends to open at least eight hotels with about 3,000 rooms in 2017, with the company expanding into three new countries. The expansion is part of a plan to increase the total number of properties it has to 83, with 24,100 rooms.
