Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton said: "Hampton by Hilton Kaiserslautern will meet an increasing demand in the city for quality and affordable accommodation for business and leisure travellers. Similar demand can be felt all across Germany where in the last year we have opened four new Hampton by Hilton hotels, with a further 12 in our pipeline."

Wolfgang Schäfer, managing director, IFA said: "Hampton by Hilton Kaiserslautern will be our debut project with Hilton. We look forward to welcoming guests to the hotel, and a strong partnership with Hilton in the future."

Daniela Schäfer-Anell, architect, IFA said: "The six storey hotel will be designed with a striking lobby and ground floor and the building will have a modern feel. The property's exterior has been designed to fit in with its surroundings and will be a great addition to this area of the city."

Equipped with a hotel bar, breakfast area, meeting rooms and fitness centre, the hotel will have the facilities to cater for leisure and business travellers alike.

Hampton by Hilton Kaiserslautern will be situated on the corner of Barbarossaring and Fischerstraße, less than a kilometre from the city centre.
