A new boutique hotel, Cititel X, is set to open in Sydney’s thriving Pyrmont/Darling Harbour precinct at the start of 2020, offering a premium location at great-value rates, with a distinctive ‘home away from home’ design, ideal for leisure and business travellers.
Cititel X Sydney will be a 60 room boutique hotel located in Murray Street, Pyrmont, with the central business district, International Convention Centre, and the restaurant districts of Darling Harbour, King Street Wharf, Chinatown and Barangaroo all just a short walk away or easily accessible via light rail.
Featuring stylish, contemporary, space-saving design in the rooms, the emphasis of the new hotel is on creating a home-like ambience with the ground floor Guest Lounge & Pantry at the heart of the hotel. The spacious area will offer comfortable seating, a garden terrace and a complimentary guest ‘pantry’ including water, soft drinks, Espresso coffee, and premium teas so that guests can meet with friends and fellow guests.
The Cititel X will provide an all-inclusive concept with snacks and refreshments included in the room rate and available throughout the day in the Guest Lounge and Pantry, which will also feature high-speed WiFi to enable guests to work from the area or just stream their favourite videos.
The hotel will deliver a co-living experience that has become very popular in Europe, changing the style of hotel experience from guests staying in their rooms to sharing stylish living areas that make them feel ‘at home’.
Taking the ‘at home’ principle one step further, Cititel X Sydney will provide cooking utensils and equipment so guests can prepare simple meals in the guest areas if they decide they want to dine in-house, taking advantage of supermarkets and food stores nearby.
The hotel will be the first Cititel X in Australia, joining a network of Cititel hotels in Malaysia, in prime locations such as Penang, Ipoh and Kota Kinabalu.
General Manager of Cititel X, Klaus Kinateder, said that the hotel had been purpose-designed to fill a vacuum in the Sydney accommodation market.
