“The acquisition of Hilton Grand Place Brussels is industrially sound and offers good potential. The hotel is strategically located adjacent to the Grand Place in Brussels with direct access to the central station, and benefits from both business and leisure demand. Based on its location, product, brand and meeting offering the hotel has good prospects to further gain market shares. The hotel property adds a distinct value to Pandox’s hotel portfolio in the continued development of the hotel market in Brussels”, says Anders Nissen, CEO of Pandox.
The acquisition of the hotel property is made in a company owned by a private investor with an underlying property value of MEUR 55. In addition, MEUR 3 will be invested in room upgrades during 2017-2018. The total investment corresponds to a yield of more than 6 percent.
The hotel has 224 rooms, 17 conference rooms and a complete F&B offering and is currently operated under a management contract with Hilton, which can be converted to a franchise agreement 2019.
