Greece Hotel Rating Scheme Finalized

hotel_hospitalityTourism Minister Olga Kefalogianni has finalized a hotel rating system that will apply to over 9,700 hotels and 35,000 accommodation providers (rooms to let), the ministry announced last week.

According to the new classification scheme, hotels will be ranked on a scale of 1 to 5 stars and/or keys. Each hotel is classified into one of five categories according to set standards and collects the minimum number of points required for classification. The hotels and rooms will be issued certification applicable for five years.

Under the certification scheme, five-star hotels will have to pay a fee of five euros per room, apartment or suite, to the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels. Four-star hotels will be required to pay a four-euro fee, three-star hotels three euros while two-star hotels, one-star and rooms in key categories 2, 3 and 4 will pay two euros.

Applications and payment can be made online at the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels’ website.

Renewal of the five-year certificate will require a technical inspection by a specialist crew from the National Accreditation System (ESYD) and the National Quality Infrastructure System.
