It opened its first hotel, the ‘Travelodge Valencia Airport’, in the region in Manises Airport last week, the company said in a statement.

The new Valencia Travelodge is located at the airport – which is Spain’s eighth busiest airport and annually serves 6.5 million passengers.


The 116-room hotel represents a £10 million (€11.7m) investment in Spain’s third largest city and has created 16 new jobs. Rooms are available from €20.

In its first weekend in operation it reached 90 per cent occupancy. The firm has focused its expansion plans in Spain until 2020 and is set to invest €1 billion in the construction of hundreds of hotels, 12 of which will be in Valencia.

Torrent, El Saler, Valencia, Castellon and Alicante could see a Travelodge coming to their streets in the coming years, according to Spanish daily lasprovincia.es.


“In Spain only two per cent of hotel rooms on offer are low-cost,” said Jon Hendry-Pickup, Operations General Manager of the chain. “With 40 million tourist arrivals each year, this is a market to exploit.”
