110 en-suite student rooms at the recently built Coal Yard project

110 en-suite student rooms at the recently built Coal Yard project will be available over the summer to rent as hotel rooms.

Pop up urban hotels are becoming popular and are a way of generating income when students vacate and before the next intake is due plus providing extra accommodation in the peak holiday season.

The management and hospitality operators, ALTIDO said “think luxury double rooms with crisp sheets and en-suite bathrooms, that easily pass as hotel rooms.”
