Foruminvest will start the construction of the new hotel with 250 rooms in April. The  hotel is on a long-term lease to the German HR Group, which will operate an ibis Styles after the summer of 2023.

“We are extremely pleased that after a long start-up process, we can finally get this project off the ground”, says Jolanda Jansen, CEO Rotterdam Ahoy. “The demand for hotel accommodation is high during (international) conferences, trade fairs, shows and concerts. We will soon be able to offer a total package. Ibis Styles is a unique hotel with a creative design, well-suited to our city. With the arrival of the hotel, this area will soon become a new city hotspot.”

Hart van Zuid, the Heijmans/Ballast Nedam construction consortium, the Municipality of Rotterdam and Rotterdam Ahoy signed a contract with Foruminvest in 2020 for the construction of the new hotel. The construction  is part of the Hart van Zuid area development. As part of this project, the Ahoy Exhibition & Event Halls were modernised in 2018, and the new Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre and RTM Stage, a multi-purpose theatre and music hall, were opened at the end of 2020.
