Starting your own Hotel | How to ...

dream

For many people starting their own boutique hotel or bed and breakfast is like a dream. Most are drawn by the charm of hospitality and see it as a chance to start a new beginning. But opening a hotel, just like any new business, is more difficult than it might seem at first sight.

Particularly if you have never worked in the international hotel industry you will be faced with many things you might not have considered or imagined. The hotel business is highly competitive and achieving good financial results is not as easy as it seems.

In my experience in dealing with entrepreneurs and investors I have found that there is no shortage of creative ideas for innovative hotel concepts. The challenge however lies more in the strategic and organizational areas of the business.

Where to get started if you want to open your own hotel? What kind of hotel should it be? How does location influence my business? How to attract guests? How to control operational costs and run a profitable business? These are all important questions that should be dealt with prior to getting into the business.
