easyHotels group are reported to be in discussion with local authorities across the country with a view to establishing hotels in council owned buildings which are not fully utilised.

easyHotels propose to take over part of a council’s building to make a return from an asset that would otherwise be redundant. As an example, an easyHotel could be established in a council property which houses a library on the ground floor but is otherwise vacant.

The easyHotel brand targets a demographic of travellers aged between 18 and 40 with a simple product, which is compact, clean and comfortable.

The buildings suitable for hotel use would be located in the centre of a city or town, no more than a five-minute walk from food and beverage outlets and ten to 15 minutes' walk from the nearest bus station or main rail terminal.

The initial response from council chiefs is reported as ‘very encouraging’.
