Adagio brand makes UK debut in Liverpool

Adagio Aparthotels, a brand of France-based hotel group, Accor, has just opened its first UK property in the city of Liverpool.

Designed as a long stay hotel, the Liverpool Adagio has 126 self-contained apartments with their own fully equipped kitchens, but guests will also have the benefit of hotel services, including a fitness room, a laundry and two meeting rooms.

The new hotel, which is located near to the city’s Albert Dock, brings the company’s aparthotel ethos to the UK, adding to its 90 existing properties in European cities including Berlin, Brussels, Munich, Paris, Rome and Vienna. Another 60 aparthotels are scheduled to open around the world by 2016.

The managing director of Accor UK & Ireland, Thomas Dubaere, said, ‘The launch of Adagio is another significant step for Accor as we continue to grow our network and strengthen our brand portfolio in the UK. Accor invests in key strategically located cities. Liverpool is a fantastic city with lots on offer for business and leisure guests and the opening of this aparthotel is proof of Accor’s expansion across the UK and not just in the Capital.’

Rooms at the Adagio Liverpool are priced from £65 per night.

Accor Hotels has its headquarters in Paris, France, from where it operates and franchises over 3,500 hotels that are based on five continents. The group’s budget brands include hotelF1, ibis and ibis styles. Its midscale brands include Grand Mercure (including Grand Mercure Appartments), Mei Jue, a Chinese adaptation of the Grand Mercure brand, Pullman and Mgallery. Sofitel is the group’s luxury brand and includes Sofitel So and Sofitel Legends.
