One of the most relevant pieces of information about an hotel is, for sure, the star class. While searching for their hotel people often apply a filter in the search to receive only hotels with 3 stars or more. Some people, to find a cheap hotel, search for 0 star hotels and some people search only for 4 and 5 star hotels.
But what exactly does 2 stars – or 3 or 4 for that matter – mean? That’s a good question and also quite tricky! The hotel stars rating is something that is always in evolution and changes from country to country, but in recent years the “Hotelstars Union” managed to harmonise the hotel classification for establishments throughout Europe and the surrounding area. Several countries subscribed the Hotelstars Union criteria and in 2012 this criteria will be applied basically all over Europe.
Using their criteria we created an infographic to show you all the services and facilities that are mandatory for the hotels to offer according to their stars rating. A dual purpose tool, you can use this to help you select your hotel and also to impress your friends. Clever, huh?
