Concept and vision
Zleep Hotels is a hotel brand that concentrates on simplifying the traveling experience. The concept is thus simple: Our rooms consist of exactly what a guest needs – no more, no less.

Quality is just one part of our five core values that we incorporate both strategically and operationally.
