Chinese group interested in buying Athens Ledra Hotel ahead of an international tender, scheduled for December 7

A Chinese group has expressed strong interest to buy the Athens Ledra Hotel ahead of an international tender, scheduled for December 7, the third attempt to sell the hotel.

Nikos Papageogriou, president of the Restaurant-Tourism and Attica Hotels Syndicate, told workers of the Athens Ledra Hotel -currently on a more than nine-month mobilization demanding payment of around 800,000 euros in unpaid work- that representatives of the Chinese group have already talked to Athens Ledra Hotel workers and have promised to preserve job positions and full payment of debt, if they succeeded in buying the hotel.
