“Zleep Hotels are the perfect complement to our brand portfolio. Peter Haaber, the founder and CEO of Zleep Hotels, has created a remarkable success story in the past few years in establishing a well-known brand among those guests who are price-conscious but at the same time emphasize on design and quality during their hotel stay. With their strong presence in Scandinavia, Zleep Hotels are the ideal partner for the further growth of Deutsche Hospitality.”
