“Hotel Stars Union is based on objective criteria. It is a strength because guests and tour operators will have a single point of reference across national borders. It makes it easier for tourists to gain information on the standard of the hotels before booking a hotel room in Greenland”.
Classification requires an annual inspection of all hotels to ensure that the quality is maintained to the prescribed criteria.
Hotel Stars Union uses the same rules and principles as the earlier classification system; thus, only minor adjustments are necessary by hotels to meet the standards required. Mounting an electrical power outlet, by the head of the bed in the rooms of three-star hotels and up, has now become mandatory.
A new feature introduces the distinction ‘Superior’, which is awarded to hotels that score points above their classification level, but who do not meet all the requirements to move a full level up.
In this way, Hotel Stars Union becomes an advantage to Greenland’s continued ability to attract tourists, as well as being an advantage for the hotels that have been classified.
