Hellenic Chamber of Hotels Receives HotelStars Union Official Observer Status

XEEThe Hellenic Chamber of Hotels received an observer status concerning the Hotelstars Union (HSU), according to an announcement made by the HSU and Hotrec (Hotels, Restaurants & Cafés in Europe) at a joint press conference that took place during the recent ITB Berlin trade show (6-10 March 2013).

HSUThe Hotelstars Union, established in 2009, is a European quality rating system that provides hotel classification with almost identical criteria of participating countries and enhances the reputation and quality of the hotel industry in those countries by creating transparency and security for guests and thereby encouraging hotel marketing.

The Hotelstars Union system already applies to 13 countries and concerns some 180 million European citizens, many that come from major countries/target markets for Greece such as Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and The Netherlands.

The Hellenic Chamber of Hotels had announced in January that it was in discussions with the HSU on the requirements and specifications for Greece to join the system.

Along with Greece, discussions are underway for Spain, France and Cyprus to join the Hotelstars Union system.
