STAYCITY OPENS ON MARK STREET IN THE HEART OF DUBLINPublish date: Tue 21 Dec, 2021
21 DECEMBER 2021, DUBLIN: Leading European aparthotel operator Staycity has opened the doors to its newest property, in the heart of Dublin 2.
The centrally located, 142-apartment property on Mark Street is a short walk from Trinity College and close to Pearse Street Rail station, Grafton Street and the National Gallery.
The stylish and spacious aparthotel offers modern studio and one-bed apartments with fully equipped kitchens/kitchenettes, living and dining spaces along with 24-hour reception, well-equipped fitness room, on-site guest laundry and Staycafé selling breakfast, snacks and hot and cold drinks.
Dublin-based Natalie Smith has been appointed general manager of the Mark Street aparthotel, heading up a 20-strong team and bringing with her a wealth of hotel experience in operations, housekeeping and management.
The developer on the project was Tetrarch Capital, with Dublin-based DTA the architect.
“This property has a fantastic location in the heart of the city,” commented Staycity CEO and co-founder Tom Walsh. “We have seen a huge surge in demand for aparthotels, amongst both business and leisure travellers who appreciate the home-from-home environment and freedom to self-cater but with additional facilities such as the gym, reception and café.”
The opening of Mark Street comes following a year of strong expansion for Staycity with the addition of new properties in Bordeaux, Heidelberg and Manchester and in the past few weeks two new prestigious developments in London – in Aldgate and Paddington.
By the end of Spring 2022 Staycity will operate 5,000 apartments across its Staycity Aparthotels and premium Wilde Aparthotels by Staycity brands. www.staycity.com
