OKKO HOTELS 4 stars, 3 new hotels opening in 2016
OKKO HOTELS, France’s new 4-star chain, continues to grow and now announces three new openings for 2016 in Cannes, Bayonne and Rueil-Malmaison. The year 2014 saw OKKO HOTELS open its first three hotels in Nantes, Grenoble and Lyon.
Following on from their success among guests (an average of 9.2/10 on Booking.com for the three hotels), the chain is now ready to unveil even more exciting plans for the future!
OKKO HOTELS Cannes Croisette
A dynamic city known the world over, Cannes will soon witness OKKO HOTELS’ next grand opening. Installed in the same building as the railway station, this 125-room hotel will be perfectly located only 5 minutes by foot from the famous Croisette waterfront avenue!
The project forms part of an ambitious scheme to regenerate the city’s railway station, led by Gares et Connexions and aiming to introduce a new range of high quality services to travellers.

The Club at the OKKO HOTELS Cannes Croisette, an inviting and contemporary area designed by Patrick Norguet, will be positioned on the sixth floor and will boast magnificent views over the city. Hotel guests will also be able to make the most of the region’s Mediterranean climate on a large outdoor terrace on the top floor of the building.
This project sees OKKO HOTELS teaming up for the second time with VINCI Immobilier, the company who oversaw the development of the OKKO HOTELS Grenoble Jardin Hoche, and who is now managing the construction of this 6-floor building alongside DGLa Architecture.
The core construction work is already in place, and the shell of the building should be complete by the end of April 2015. The hotel’s official opening is planned for March 2016.
OKKO HOTELS Bayonne Centre
Leaving the Cote d’Azur behind, it’s off to the south-west of France where OKKO HOTELS will open its fifth hotel in the centre of the city of Bayonne!

This hotel will form part of the Rivadour scheme, a new development of residential properties and offices executed by the architects at Mateo Arquitectura and overseen by developer Eiffage Immobilier. The hotel is financed by Bernard Decoster’s family.
The 92-room hotel will be ideally positioned by the Pont Grenet bridge on the Boulevard du Bab, near the lively banks of the River Adour and only a ten-minute walk from the Old Town.
The hotel’s Club, a genuine living area open to guests 24/7, will be located on the top floor of the hotel with a view over the river.
As with every OKKO HOTELS, guests will find a whole range of services included in the price of their room. These will include a dining room offering snacks and refreshments around the clock, cosy lounge areas to read a book and relax, a business corner, a boutique offering local products and designer accessories, as well as a terrace adjoining the health and well-being area on the hotel’s penultimate floor.
Structural works are scheduled for completion in May 2015, and the OKKO HOTELS Bayonne Centre will open its doors to the public a year later, in May 2016.
OKKO HOTELS Paris Rueil-Malmaison
OKKO HOTELS Paris Rueil-Malmaison, the group’s first hotel in the surroundings of the French capital, will boast an ideal location at the heart of a dynamic business district accessible in 10 minutes by public transport from the centre of Paris.

The 110-room hotel, in the process of being built by BOUYGUES Construction under the guidance of project developer FIMINCO, will form part of an ambitious redevelopment and modernisation of the district’s RER Mobipôle train station.
The elegant dressed-stone building has been designed by the architect Loïc Richalet, and will also house a garden centre, a student residence and two restaurants.
On the first floor of the hotel, guests will be able to enjoy a Club area boasting fully 300m² of floor space and a large outdoor terrace, all the work once more of our designer Patrick Norguet. A fitness gym will also be available on the fifth floor.
Construction is well underway, with nearly half of the core structure already in place. OKKO HOTELS Paris Rueil-Malmaison should be ready to start welcoming guests in June 2016!
