Ikea is heading deeper into the hospitality industry, partnering with Marriott International Inc. to open 150 budget hotels in Europe over the next decade. Ikea's Inter Hospitality Holding, part of the Swedish furniture giant's property division, and Marriott plan to launch the first Moxy Hotel in Milan early next year. The hope is to have 50 sites in development within five years, owned initially by Inter and operated by franchisees. With 150 to 300 rooms each, the hotels are expected to open in major cities in Germany, Britain, Italy, Denmark and more and will fall into the economy-tier, three-star hospitality segment, the companies said.

Backpacking across Europe? Soon, travelers may be able to bunk in budget hotels from Swedish home furnishing giant Ikea. The owner of Ikea's intellectual property rights, Inter Ikea, is planning to open at least 100 such lodgings across the continent, according to the Financial Times . But the company won't run the affordably priced boutique hotels, nor will it give them the Ikea name. Instead, an established hotel operator will take charge, according to the Times. Inter Ikea is also looking at building residences for students.

IF you and your special someone go to a hotel in Prague, Czech Republic, but don't want anyone to know, the name to register under is "Pan a Pani Novak."
