The new building will be housed near the Bahnhofstrasse, in the former Selnau Post Office, a courtyard-rimmed complex, and will feature 380 guestrooms.
"With the new Motel One, a hotel emerges in Zurich offering guests a stylish design and high-quality décor at attractive prices, situated in a prime location just five minutes away from the Bahnhofstrasse and Paradeplatz," said Dieter Müller, chief executive and founder of the German hotel chain.
The Motel One hotel chain was founded in 2000, and currently encompasses 50 hotels with 11,500 rooms, located in Germany, Austria, United Kingdom and Belgium.
Further hotels are currently under construction – with locations including Basel, London, Vienna, Leipzig and Berlin.
