Vastint Hospitality has entered into an agreement to acquire a hotel site at Milan’s city airport Linate. The plot measures 4,815 sqm and allows for a hotel with 200 keys. After Milan-Malpensa, this will be the second Moxy location in Italian’s capital of fashion and design. The site is located in walking distance to the airport and benefits from excellent accessibility via public transport – currently there are works undergoing for a Metro station close to the future Moxy Hotel. This will enable guests to go to Piazza Duomo directly, using the M4 line. Milan Linate Airport, the second largest airport of Italy (after Malpensa), accounted 9.69m passengers in 2015.
Also, Vastint Hospitality has purchased a long lease for a site in Southampton. The future 213-rooms Moxy Hotel will be located in a major edge-of-town retail, commercial and leisure area, adjacent to Carnival’s headquarters and a Premier Inn. It is also within a short walk of both the city centre and the ferry terminals. Access by rail and by car is also very convenient. Southampton is located in the centre of England’s South Coast and is best known as the UK’s leading cruise port and centre of shipping industries.
