Awards

Plaudits for the Motel One concept

We have garnered a host of awards and top rankings both within Germany and beyond.

Our approach has impressed expert juries from the hospitality and business sectors just as much as it does our guests. We have secured the number-one spot in the German Institute for Service Quality’s survey identifying ‘Germany’s Best Budget Hotel’ four times in succession since 2010.

We particularly value reviews from guests. Every day our recommendation rate of much more than 90% is a fresh source of motivation.

The Motel One team is extremely proud of this approbation, and are working with total commitment to try to ensure we remain a favourite next year.
