The Historic Hotels of Europe is a gold standard, prestigious network representing the finest hotels operating in historical buildings across 13 countries.
An umbrella group for 400 properties under 11 member groups, the Historic Hotels of
Europe is proud to represent a wealth of high quality, luxury hotels – each with their own
unique story to tell.

“Our historic hotels are eclectic and authentic, and we aim to bring our guests on a journey of inspiring experiences beyond the expected.”
Barbara Avdis, Chairman

Created with the objective of promoting global awareness, the group showcases properties as diverse as they are culturally and historically important. From beautiful castles, to palaces, abbeys and estates, these outstanding properties all fall under one trusted name of quality and standards – the Historic Hotels of Europe.
Standing as an example of cultural traditions, history, heritage and architecture, each of
these storied properties offers guests an authentic and stylish experience – from breathtaking locations to exquisite dining options.
The proprietors of these historic jewels are passionate about honoring Europe’s cultural
heritage through excellence in hospitality, and see themselves as not just hoteliers but also as guardians of unique historical assets.
Although each hotel and member organisation is unique, they all share in the Historic Hotels of Europe’s vision – to be acting guardians of the past and outstanding hosts of the present.
It is this vision combined with consistent, and high-quality service that defines our incredible collection of hotels.
