This is a large and exciting project that we can finally announce. Apart from being our largest hotel, Quality Airport Hotel Dan is a hotel with great potential. We expect, with its location near the airport and our cooperation with Nordic Choice Hotels, to continue the positive development that the hotel is experiencing. The hotel is the second property in Core Hospitality and the 11th when combined with our hotels under the Zleep Hotels brand. Our pipeline boasts another five Zleep hotels and two Moxy hotels in Denmark and Norway, so we are experiencing a significant growth period, which will now be further strengthened by this wonderful opportunity in Copenhagen.”
