Aston International’s 2 star favehotels set for aggressive expansion

JAKARTA – During this year’s Aston Week Jakarta, an annual trade show that brings together representatives of 35 Aston Hotels and Jakarta’s Travel Trade and Corporate Business Communities, Aston International presented aggressive expansion plans for its 2 star select service group “favehotel”.

Since launched in early 2009, favehotel has become the fastest growing selected service hotel brand in Indonesia and beyond. Currently there are 2 favehotels in operation, one in Denpasar, Bali and the other in Surabaya and another 20 under development in the following locations:

Indonesia: Jakarta – Sunter, Wahid Hasyim, Melawai, Serpong ; Bali – Petitenget, Seminyak, Kuta, Legian; Bandung; Bogor; Jogjakarta – Cendrawasi, Mangkubumi; Solo; Solo Baru; Makassar
Malaysia: Langkawi
Philippines: Alabang, Cebu, Davao, Manila Airport

Aston Internationals Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Mr. Norbert Vas, said “We will continue to grow the Aston hotel brands Grand Aston, Aston and Aston City and are currently negotiating projects in various locations throughout Indonesian and Malaysia but our favehotel brand has really hit a nerve with developers and the traveling public. They are so well conceptualized that investors are rushing in to build them while guests are full of praise for their stylish appeal and no nonsense approach to hospitality”.
