Austrian hotel group Vienna House is launching Vienna House R.evo, a new brand and a new "tribrid" hotel concept that reportedly combines "the individuality of a home, flexibility of a guesthouse and the stylish design of a city apartment."
The debut Vienna House R.evo is set to open in Munich, Germany, and construction is scheduled to begin this year.
Vienna House plans to open up to three hotels per year under the new brand in the center of mid-size to larger cities. The group is currently eyeing development opportunities in Budapest, Hungary; Hamburg, Germany; Vienna, Austria; Glasgow, Scotland; and Bangkok, Thailand as part of these expansion plans.
The brand’s hotels will have regular guestrooms, studio apartments, friends-and-family rooms and workspace to rent by guests and outside visitors. They will allow bookings for a minimum of a few hours up to several months.
The properties will also have regular hotel services, like the lobby, reception, laundry service, housekeeping, a gym and restaurants. Vienna House R.evo’s dining facilities will include restaurants, a breakfast area and a bar.
Additional services will include in-room refrigerators that can be filled with products sourced from local suppliers, e-bikes, e-car sharing and vehicle charging stations. Vienna House plans to launch a corresponding mobile concierge app for the R.evo brand to manage these guest services.
The new hotel lined up for Munich will join Vienna House’s Angelo by Vienna House Munich Leuchtenbergring property plus another 15 hotels across Germany. These operate under the Vienna House, Vienna House Easy and Vienna House Andel’s brands.
