To support the group's expansion, pentahotels was repositioned in 2012 as a design-forward, neighbourhood lifestyle hotel brand, providing independent travellers with a mix of fun with functionality, comfort with creativity and style with simplicity. The concept is projected to be brought to life in an increasing number of urban centres, conference and exhibition complexes, and transportation hubs.
pentahotels is a design-driven, neighbourhood lifestyle brand providing independent travellers with comfort and style in a contemporary environment. The brand was launched in Europe and is currently represented by 22 hotels in Europe and Asia, with a target of 80 pentahotels in operation globally by 2020. The hallmark of the hotels is pentalounge - a combined lobby, reception, bar and café - designed as a lively gathering place for hotel guests and local patrons alike.
