Notes to Editors

Sleeperz Hotels is an innovative UK budget hotels business.

It opened its first UK hotel in the Welsh capital Cardiff in 2008 followed by a 98-bedroom Newcastle hotel in 2012 and a new ‘rooms based’ sister brand called Cityroomz, which opened in Edinburgh in May 2013.

A cityroomz extension was completed in 2017 with the conversion of former office building Princes House, just off Edinburgh’s world-famous Princes Street.

Sleeperz Hotel Dundee opens in Summer 2018 opposite the new V&A Museum of Design, as part of a £1bn redevelopment of Dundee’s industrial waterfront area.

Sleeperz is planning to build further hotels in major UK cities, and is exploring sites in Chester, Glasgow, London, Birmingham and Manchester.
