Affine converts an office building in Kremlin-Bicêtre into a new lodging
Affine has entered into an agreement with Louvre Hotels Group, the 5th largest
hotel group worldwide, for a 12- year fixed-term lease, for the operation of a
new budget lodging product, allowing clients to book beds rather than rooms,
that will offer 238 beds in Kremlin-Bicêtre (94).
This future project will use an office building from Affine's historical
portfolio, which will undergo major restructuring works and a superstructure
extension covering a total floor area of approximately 1,600 sqm. Its location
at Porte d'Italie on the first ring road of Paris offers access to all of the
capital's public transport services: metro, tram, bus and A4 and A6 motorways.
The establishment will comprise 39 dormitory-type rooms, offering two to eight
beds with bathrooms, and all the necessary equipment to guarantee a comfortable
stay: reception desk, automatic digital check-in, breakfast room, laundry room
and a rooftop recreational area. Completion and operation are planned for Q1
This new concept will be operated by Louvre Hotels Group under a brand from the
super low-cost sector, which is still confidential. This offering will
complement that of the neighbouring hotel restaurant Campanile 3 stars,
belonging to the same group. The geographical proximity will provide greater
visibility and improved traffic for the multi-brand hotel place.
This operation witnesses Affine's investment strategy aiming at creating value
with its existing portfolio through better use of space thanks to conversion or
development of property reserves; it also contributes to the rejuvenation of
