Hospitality group Accor Hotels is reportedly in talks to invest up to $50million in India’s Treebo Hotels.

Two sources close to the development told Indian business website Mint about the deal. According to the source, the French-hospitality group has “put a term sheet” for an investment of around $50 million. This could get the hotel group a significant stake in Treebo.

When Hotelier Middle East got in touch with Accor’s team in India, they refused to comment on the matter.
