8Hotels has entered into a definitive long-term management agreement to operate a 96 room Pensione Hotel in Perth, Western Australia.
The property currently known as Aarons Hotel Perth will undergo a AUD$3.5m refurbishment to all guest rooms and common areas and re-branded Pensione Hotel Perth.
“We are thrilled to bring the Pensione brand and our boutique hotel management and marketing skills to Australia’s most exciting hotel market,” said 8Hotels CEO Paul Fischmann.
“We are also very proud to be awarded this opportunity over stiff competition from Australia’s largest and most established hotel operators. This is a testament to our people and their drive and passion to deliver results exceeding industry benchmarks.”
Fischmann said Pensione Perth would fill a niche in the Perth market for a quality yet affordable boutique hotel experience, catering to both business and leisure travellers.
