SMARTY combines four classic accommodation concepts within one timeless innovative brand, that has been tailormade to the expectations and needs of modern travelers.
SMARTY Hotels | Boardinghouses | Hostels | Pod Hotels are known for its space optimized, smart furnishing style, state-of the art digital room features and an innovative, easy to apply operating concept.
Customer expectations in terms of comfort, technology and layout are being exceeded, whilst SMARTY succeeds without unnecessary and cost intensive extra services. Therefore, the brand creates a real additional value for guests, operators and investors.
Reflected by the corporate slogan Easy. Comfy. SMARTY. SMARTY Hotels | Boardinghouses | Hostels | Pod Hotels convince through central location, great connectivity and an unbeatable price-performance ratio.
The brand has a unique modular structure and consist of four concept modules:
- Pod Hotel
Every module can be implemented and utilized independently from each other. Alternatively, individual modules can be combined, to be integrated within one location or building. There are different options with a reception or none, or a part-time reception.
Particularly the SMARTY Boardinghouse concept is not based on a permanently occupied reception desk. All customer related aspects are perfectly covered by the in-room tablet, guest app and check in machine of the latest generation. More details can be explained on demand.
In addition to the accommodation concepts the following additional modules have been developed:
- Combi: Shop & Café
These optional modules can be added to every SMARTY accommodation module based on preference and requirement of the project. This way they supplement a possible food and beverage requirement. These extra modules solely support the accommodation product, which delivers the main income. The shop / café module can be a part of the SMARTY operator’s business or can be run by a third party.
SMARTY Property Development:
SMARTY has been created to perfectly fit existing properties and developments. The concept already delivers profitable business results starting from 25 room units onwards. Hence, it is ideal for start-up businesses and boutique locations.
Contrary to established hotel franchise brands, SMARTY offers a real alternative to all conventional kinds of accommodation operating concepts, project conversions and new developments. The SMARTY concept has been successfully proven, especially in the area of midclass private hotel businesses, with or without food and beverage outlets.
It is ideally suited for the integration in existing hostels and hotels, as well as in boarding houses of every size and kind.
Not least due to its continuous development and ongoing digitalization the SMARTY concept also offers a long term and low investment based accommodation concept, which is particularly suitable for new developments and the repurposing of property developments with a capacity starting from 100 room units.
We tailor make business agreements individually based on the conditions and visions of our partners. These may vary between management contracts, long term license agreements and consulting mandates, aiming to build customized solutions for every need and budget.
