Travel company Cox & Kings is planning to get its hotel chain Meininger to India.
The company got complete control of the German-based group in February this year after Meininger owners decided to sell the remaining 26 per cent share to Holidaybreak, which is part of Cox & Kings. The travel company acquired Holidaybreak in 2011.
Meininger, which offers rooms that are hybrids of hotel and hostel, runs 16 hotels across 10 cities in Europe and is positioned in the budget segment.
Peter Kerkar, Director, Cox & Kings, said, “It is a hybrid of hostel and hotel that we offer to families, students and even corporate travellers. The concept is to offer the maximum number of beds in a room. So while a room can be converted into a dormitory with beds for school groups, we can also offer it to an individual business traveller.”
