Accor sells portfolio of 29 hotels in Germany and The Netherlands

As part of the restructuring of HotelInvest's assets, Accor announces the sale and franchise-back of 29 hotels (3,354 rooms) in Germany (18 hotels, 2,167 rooms) and the Netherlands (11 hotels, 1,187 rooms) for a total value of €234 million. The selling price amounts to €209m. The undisclosed buyer has committed to a €25m renovation plan.

The portfolio comprises two ibis budget, 11 ibis, 12 Mercure and four Novotel hotels. Of the 29 hotels sold, 27 were acquired in June 2014 as part of the acquisition of the Moor Park portfolio. The two other establishments—an ibis budget in Germany and a Mercure in the Netherlands—were previously owned by HotelInvest.

The transaction will take place before the end of the summer 2015, with German company Event Hotels, one of the Group's main franchisees, which has 15 hotels in Germany under the ibis, ibis Styles, Mercure and Pullman brands.
