- Cycas to manage the E&O Group’s first European serviced apartment property, in London
- Cycas has also taken over the management of Qbic Brussels and Qbic Manchester, which opens May 2021
Cycas Hospitality’s European expansion plans continue, following the signing of three hotel management agreements across the UK and Belgium so far this year.
The first property deal is with Eastern & Oriental (E&O) to manage the E&O Group’s inaugural European serviced apartment property; a 54-room luxury extended-stay property in the heart of London.
Expected to open in autumn 2021, The Lincoln Suites will offer 28 one-bedroom suites, and 26 studios with high-end amenities, set within a converted 1920s neo-classical building in Holborn. Thanks to its central location along Kingsway in Westminster, guests will enjoy easy access to the capital’s transport local and national connections, including six London Underground lines within a nine-minute walk.
The hotel operator has also taken over the management of two Qbic-branded properties in the UK and Belgium; the 148-room Qbic Brussels in the vibrant Ixelles neighbourhood, south of the city centre, and the 261-room Qbic Manchester, which is set to open next month on a prominent site in the city centre. Both properties incorporate the brand’s Motley Bar & Restaurant plus meetings and gym facilities.
Asli Kutlucan, Chief Development Officer at Cycas Hospitality, said: “Given E&O’s reputation for providing exclusive developments for discerning travellers, we are delighted to be working together to help bring their distinctive style to Europe.
“With Cycas’s experience of successfully introducing both extended-stay and lifestyle brands to new markets, we’re excited about the opportunities to drive leisure and corporate business across three dynamic destinations.”
