Meliá Hotels International has signed an agreement on its first hotel in Leipzig, Germany, which is planned to open its doors in late 2015.
Under the auspices of real estate developer, KSW, the Kosmoshaus – which was built in the neoclassical style in 1853 – will be converted into a four-star superior hotel to be added to the Innside by Meliá design and lifestyle brand. Framed by the historical Kosmoshaus to the right and a modern bank building to the left, the hotel will feature a newly-built section consisting of twisted facades bowing before Leipzig’s renowned St Thomas Church across the road.
Located close to the city centre and next to the trendy quarter of Gottschedstrasse, the premium hotel will have 153 lifestyle rooms and suites. The top floor of the new building will host an exclusively-designed fine dining restaurant. The roof of the old building is to include a modern skybar including an outdoor terrace, providing a striking view of the city.
In addition, the hotel will provide four meeting rooms spread across a 380m² conference area, a spacious wellness area and an underground car park.
