According to the newest report by HVS, hotels in Europe increase their value for the fifth consecutive year. The 2015 European Hotel Valuation Index contains information about year to year hotel value in the region and clearly shows that the biggest gain was reached by hotels in the UK and Southern Europe. The leader in terms of hotel value growth in Europe is Madrid. Hotels in this Spanish city added 14% compared to 2013. The average value per hotel room was 185,000 euro (around US$207,000) in 2013, and in 2014 it was already 211,000 euro (around US$236,000) per hotel room.
This will certainly make Madrid hotels even more attractive for investors. As hotels in the city are expected to keep adding value in coming years, many investors will plan purchases while hotels’ price has not skyrocketed.
Other leaders in terms of price per hotel room are such popular European destinations as Paris, London, and Zurich. The average cost of a hotel room there estimates 246,641 euro. As there is a decent trend of increasing hotel value in Europe, hotels in the abovementioned cities are also expected to cost more in coming years.
