France’s AccorHotels to open two hotels in Iran next month


The French group AccorHotels announced on Monday it would become the first international hotel group to operate in Iran as the Islamic republic opens up to the west after the deal on its nuclear program.

AccorHotels will open an Ibis hotel and a Novotel branch near Tehran’s international airport,  AFP reported on Tuesday.

The move comes just two months after the historic nuclear accord which the west says is aimed at preventing Iran from building a nuclear bomb. The deal received backing from the US Congress on Thursday.

The hotel contracts will be signed on Tuesday by AccorHotels’ chief executive, Sebastien Bazin, with representatives of an Iranian company, Aria Ziggurat, which owns the buildings.

The hotels are scheduled to open on 15 October with a total of nearly 500 rooms.

Aimed at both international and Iranian business travelers, they will be equipped with meeting rooms, conference spaces, and spas, fitness suites and swimming pools.

“There is an enormous potential for development of our brands in this country of nearly 80 million inhabitants whose economy is growing fast,” Bazin said.

AccorHotels is the world’s sixth-largest hotel group.

It is the world’s number-one and Europe’s leading hotel operator, with 470000 rooms in more than 3700 hotels in 92 countries.
