A selection of our hotel investments

Campus Mitte Würzburg – AC Hotel by Marriott and Moxy

 Side view of the Campus Mitte Würzburg building - AC Hotel by Marriott and Moxy.

Two high-quality Marriott hotels acquired in a secondary city with around 1 million overnight stays a year. The balanced mix of guests (comprising an equal share of leisure and business travellers), combined with the proven hotel concept, promises a competitive market position. 

Schürer Straße 7-9, Würzburg, Deutschland

The hotels are situated next to one of Würzburg’s main traffic arteries and have excellent transport connections. Despite being located somewhat outside the historic old town and on the outskirts of the centre, the hotels are still very easy for guests to reach by car or public transport.
