ZEN Rooms, the number one hotel chain in the Philippines, launched last month ZEN Premium Uptown BGC, the first and only budget hotel in Bonifacio Global City.
The opening of ZEN Premium Uptown BGC is in line with the pioneering spirit of ZEN Rooms, which has a track record of disrupting the short-term accommodation sector.
In 2016, ZEN Rooms entered the Philippines with the aim to radically improve the value-for-money of hotels in the country, historically plagued by high prices, unsafe facilities and poor guest ratings.
In 2017, ZEN launched ZEN Homes in BGC, the first affordable, professionally-run service apartment brand in the Philippines.
Today, ZEN is once again disturbing the sector by opening the only budget hotel in BGC, with a budget premium positioning.
Presently there are only five hotels in BGC, all of which are four- and five- star properties with rates of P8,000 and above per night.
ZEN’s newly built hotel has 105 rooms and is conveniently located on Kalayaan avenue, a five-minutes walk from Uptown Mall with rates starting at only P1,500 per night.
The building is owned by DEI Properties, one of the leading family-owned developers in the Philippines.
The opening of ZEN Premium Uptown BGC is part of ZEN’s continuous effort in providing a solution to the lack of affordable accommodations the country’s most dynamic business district, in line with its aim to democratize travel to all.
“BGC Developers have built an amazing modern city with tremendous appeal but with unfortunately no affordable hotels, leading to nonsense situations where business travellers are forced to either spend excessively on high-end hotels at the Fort or commute hours to reach their meetings in BGC. With the launch of ZEN Premium Uptown, we are delighted to be putting an end to this unfair nonsense with our partner DEI Properties.” said BGC based Nathan Boublil, co-founder and chief executive officer of ZEN Rooms.
