Accor has signed its second ibis hotel in Hong Kong, a property which is also the group’s first purpose built ibis hotel in the city.

 The ibis Hong Kong Sheung Wan, scheduled to open in early 2012, is being developed by Bright Century Limited – a joint venture between Hong Kong based real estate developer Common Empire Development Ltd. and Singapore based private equity fund Alpha Investment Partners Limited.

 It is located at the junction of Bonham Strand West and Des Voeux Road West on Hong Kong island. The hotel is a few minutes walk to Sheung Wan MTR and the Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal.

The hotel will boast 550 guest rooms, an all day dining venue and bar.

Michael Issenberg, Chairman and Chief Operating Officer, Accor Asia Pacific said, “The development of this hotel is testament to the energy that has been invested into expanding the ibis hotel brand throughout Asia Pacific. Today ibis exists in central locations in almost all major capitals throughout the region, consistently offering full service international quality accommodation and with the best value proposition. It demonstrates our continued capacity to meet the ambitious objectives of our global development programme and heralds a new era of international-quality, economy accommodation in downtown Hong Kong – a key market for the brand in the Asia Pacific.”

Today throughout the world, Accor operates over 800 ibis hotels. By the end of 2009, the Asia Pacific ibis network will have expanded to 82 ibis hotels of which 42 will be in China. Between 2009 and 2010, one to two new ibis hotels are expected to be launched in the world every week.
