The building will be located at an empty plot right alongside the Silesian Philharmonic. The company has already obtained a valid building permit. The economy class, 7-storey hotel will offer 105 rooms, including rooms for disabled guests and family rooms. Architectural design of the building was prepared by Arbapol from Kraków. Free Wi-Fi and satellite TV access as well as air-conditioning will be provided in all rooms. Conference area equipped with media set is to be offered for business customers needs. Also, an underground car park – located under the building – will be put at guests disposal.

„The new investment in the Upper Silesia region is the next step to strengthen our position at the market in Poland, which still offers large opportunities for the expansion of economic hotels. Katowice is an important center of business, sport and culture, and the City needs accommodation rooms of this class. As we avoid unnecessary costs, we can offer high quality comfort and services at attractive prices. The combination of comfortable rooms and low prices attracts not only businessmen but also the growing number of tourist travelers” – commented Beatrice Bouchet, president of B&B Hotels Poland.

The company announced to open the hotel in 2016.
