Arp-Hansen Hotel Group Expands Zaplox Partnership Through the Opening of Northern Europe’s Largest Hostel

Next House Copenhagen to offer contactless check-in/checkout and mobile keys with mobile guest app and a complementary self-service kiosk solution

Zaplox AB (publ.) (“Zaplox”), which offers hotels and casinos a contact-free mobile guest journey for a safe and engaging guest experience, announced that the hotel chain Arp-Hansen Hotel Group has once again chosen Zaplox Mobile Guest App and Zaplox Kiosk to be rolled out at Next House Copenhagen, the hotel group’s new luxury hostel in central Copenhagen. Next House Copenhagen, set to open in fall of 2021, will be Northern Europe’s largest hostel with 433 rooms and 1,650 beds.

Guests staying at the hostel will be able to choose between using a self-service kiosk to check-in or they can use their own phone for contactless check-in and checkout with a mobile key to unlock the hotel room. Both Zaplox’s guest app and kiosk solution will be integrated with hotel’s lock system from ASSA ABLOY as well as with the Oracle Hospitality Suite8 PMS.

Prior to the stay, guests will be prompted to download the app and can then use their phone for the entire check-in and checkout process as well as a mobile key. In addition, the app will provide mobile access to information about the hostel and things to do in the area, and guests can take advantage of special offers that can be communicated via the app.

Arp-Hansen Hotel Group is Copenhagen’s largest hotel chain with 13 properties and a total of more than 5,000 hotel rooms in central Copenhagen. Zaplox Mobile Guest App and Kiosk solution are already in use at the chain’s other luxury hostel, Steel House Copenhagen as well as at four Wakeup Hotel properties.

Just like Steel House Copenhagen, Next House Copenhagen will not offer a traditional front desk, but instead guests will have several digital check-in and checkout options, resulting in a smoother guest experience with less time wasted in line. As a complement to the app, guests can also use the Zaplox self-service lobby kiosks to check in and print out key cards.

“Arp-Hansen is once again leading the way by providing high quality accommodation and a unique experience for the modern city traveler and we are looking forward to support one of our most regarded hotel customers during this launch,” says Even Frydenberg, CEO of Zaplox. “We are very proud of the renewed confidence in Zaplox to deliver a contactless, digital guest journey to yet another of Arp-Hansen’s properties.”
