Last week saw the opening of a new hotel just three minutes' walk from Glasgow Central Station.
The Pocotel Glasgow City Centre is at 139-141 West George Street. The property has been developed by RBH Hospitality Management who plan to open similar Pocotel’s in the coming months. They explain that the name Pocotel is derived from ‘Poco’, the Italian word for ‘little’, embodying the intimacy and community feel of smaller city hotels that prioritise comfort without all the fuss.
The owners of the 91-bedroom hotel, Bracknell Property LLP, are an existing RBH partner and have appointed the hospitality management company at a time of major investment and heightened demand in the city ahead of COP26 in November and in line with ongoing city regeneration works. There are two small conference rooms available.
Commenting on the Pocotel launch, David Hart, CEO of RBH said: “This is the second rebrand of this nature that the RBH team have helped initiate from scratch in the past couple of months and it’s remarkable to see it come to life so quickly. Pocotel Glasgow City Centre is a brilliant addition to our portfolio and embodies the innovation and ingenuity that we’re striving to create. Following the Glasgow launch, we have further plans to expand Pocotel as an established hotel brand throughout the UK in the near future.”
