General Manager

Welcome to the future of hotel accommodation! 
Citybox is opening a brand new hotel with 180 rooms in the heart of Antwerp, and we are looking for the right person to run it. 
In case you haven't heard of Citybox before, we're all about modernization and innovation! We've thrown out minibars, old fashioned TV-sets, and room service. As a result, we offer modern and affordable hotel rooms for frequent travelers. Our rooms are simple, but they contain what guests value the most: a high-quality bed, a desk and chair, a modern bathroom, and free WiFi. We've replaced the traditional reception with check-in terminals, and our interior features Scandinavian design with focus on durability and sustainability. Citybox currently consists of four hotels, but our ambition is to become one of Europe's leading high-quality, low-budget hotel-chains. The opening of Citybox Antwerp is an exciting next step of this plan. To read more about Citybox Hotels and our concept, please visit
That's a bit about us, now back to that special person we're looking for ...

Job description

Our general manager will have the most important role at the hotel and will respond directly to our Operations Manager and our CEO. We are looking for a hotelier who is young at heart and can conceptualize a different take on the established norm of hotels.
Citybox Antwerp is our second hotel outside Norway, and it is necessary for you to get Citybox on the map in Antwerpen.

Another important factor is a controlled view on our costs levels, along with a bird's view on our ever-evolving rev/par. Can you add certain human skills that help gel our cooperation with our suppliers – you'll be a perfect match! As we do not have an own restaurant, no food & beverage experience is demanded. We will, however, directly link up with a partner-cafe in the building.
