The greet brand has made its debut in the Paris region, as well as in Castres and Angoulême.
Greet, the Accor group’s budget-friendly brand, is continuing to expand in France. Since its launch in 2019, it had already opened five establishments, first in Beaune, then in Marseille Centre Saint-Charles, Marseille Provence Aéroport, Lyon Confluence and Bordeaux Aéroport
. And four establishments have recently joined it. These hotels share the art of salvage and second-hand furniture, a taste for local and/or organic products and drinks and, of course, low prices for travellers.
The Greet brand appeared for the first time in the Paris region with a hotel in the 18th arrondissement, the Paris Nord greet. The hotel was converted from an ibis Budget and its manager Olivier Boulch describes it as ” just as suitable for business trips as for leisure stays with family or friends
” due to its location near the Gare du Nord, Montmartre and La Villette.
In the south-west of the capital, greet has also set up in Boulogne-Billancourt, on Boulevard Jean Jaurès. Due to its proximity to Roland Garros and the Parc des Princes, the hotel plays on the theme of sport in its decoration with mottled golf rackets and clubs hanging on the walls or old changing rooms reused in the lobby. Note that the hotel also has an outdoor courtyard that will soon be home to a garden.
In addition to the Paris region, two provincial towns have a new hotel greet, Castres and Angoulême. Opened last October, the Angoulême greet plays on the theme of the countryside in the city. Nestled in the heart of a wooded park, it offers moments of outdoor relaxation with a petanque court and a ping-pong table, while affirming its local roots with, at the bar, wines from the Charente and local beers and products from a local organic creamery and a butcher’s shop in Angoulême, while the jams offered at breakfast are made by a young entrepreneur from the region. ” We are committed to supporting the local fabric through partnerships with local associations“, explains Laure Ramade, its director, who believes that for her, ” hotels greet are the hotels of tomorrow. ”
I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
