About Euro Stars
Founded in January 2005, Eurostars Hotels currently has more than 60 privileged establishments located in historical city centres or near financial districts. Its hotels are primarily targeted at cultural and business travelers.
Touring the facilities of any Eurostars hotel means discovering a universe of spaces featuring painstaking design and well-appointed decor in which avant-garde and tradition merge to give rise to warm, welcoming hotels. In them, guests feel as comfortable as in their own home, yet without sacrificing all the advantages and comforts of the most modern facilities and state-of-the-art technological equipment.
A little history
In 1993, Grupo Hotusa embarked upon a new avenue in its expansion strategy as it began to manage and directly run hotels to complement its traditional business as a chain of partner hotels. Thus, the Ciudad de Vacaciones Monte do Gozo (Santiago de Compostela, La Coruña, Spain) became the first hotel directly run by the company.Year after year the hotel division has gradually expanded its portfolio of hotels in both Spain and other European countries. This process of expansion gained ground in 2005 with the launch of the Eurostars Hotels chain, which has quickly expanded both nationally and internationally in a little over 5 years.
The name Eurostars Hotels is a faithful reflection of the goal pursued by the brand: to be present in the leading European cities without losing its stronghold in the Spanish market.Today the chain is present in almost all European countries as well as in the United States, Mexico and Argentina.
In recent years, Hotusa’s traditional hotel representation has been complemented by heavy expansion in the number of hotels that it directly runs.
These two lines of business follow parallel yet independent pathways, although they try to mutually take advantage of the synergies from both activities.
Thus, the representation activity takes place within a consortium that brings together more than 2,500 partner hotels in 48 countries, while its direct hotel management is based on managing hotels as both the owner and through leases.
Today Hotusa manages over 100 hotels, more than 60 of which are part of the “Eurostars Hotels Collection” created in January 2005 and today one of the leading urban hotel chains in Spain.
Hotusa International Offices
Hotusa has a network of offices which serve as a fundamental support for supplying its partner hotels with the arrival of such important segments as tourist groups and incentive groups.
These branches are located in Rome, Paris, London, Vienna, Lisbon and Buenos Aires.
Eurostars Hotels is the brand under which Grupo Hotusa manages more than 60 hotels. They all share unique architecture and privileged locations. Likewise, each Eurostars Hotels establishment exists in harmony with the urban life around it, permeating them with their characteristics through their structure, interior design and the presence of samples of local art and culture inside them.
Founded in Barcelona in 1973, the oldest hotel representative in Spain joined Grupo Hotusa in 1995 in a strategic transaction with major effects for both parties.
One of its main values is its solid position within corporate travel segments. In fact, Keytel was the first Spanish hotel representative in Amadeus.
Ever since it joined Grupo Hotusa, it has shown steady growth in both turnover and the number of hotels it represents.
Keytel is primarily oriented toward 4-and 5-star hotels in urban destinations, and it currently provides services to almost 1,700 hotels in Europe, America, Africa and Asia.
Restel was set up in 1982, when it entered the market as a Tour Operator for custom-designed trips in 1996. As the outcome of its growth and development strategy, in recent years the company has positioned itself as one of the hotel reservation clearinghouses with the highest growth in continental Europe.
It has a portfolio of almost 20,000 hotels located on five continents; it has also gained ground as a key factor in the group’s international development strategy in the forthcoming years.
This is a dot-com specialising in online hotel management and reservations on the Internet targeted at end consumers. Hotelius.com has an extensive, diversified portfolio and offers more than 50,000 hotels all over the world.
It includes the Grupo Hotusa portfolio complemented by an extensive range of hotels worldwide, all integrated through the rubric of direct agreements which have enabled it to assemble one of the most comprehensive ranges of hotels in the world.
Technologically, Grupo Hotusa relies on its own developments that adapt to all the known distribution channels. In fact, the fact that it uses shared technology goes a long way to integrating all its hotels, either individually or jointly.
This company in the information technology sector has been a part of Grupo Hotusa since 2006. Today it is one of the leading technological partners in the leisure and tourism industry and has more than 700 client hotels. Ever since it was founded in 1996, IGM Web has developed integrated solutions for capturing hotel reservations, graphic design and sales of tickets and passes to cultural and sporting events. In parallel, it has provided strategic consulting services on integrating information technologies in the aforementioned areas.
In this way, it has accompanied the revolutionary day-to-day events of its clients, gaining a position as a key element in the operation of many companies.
