The issue of hotel star rating is an essential component in the development of the hotel business, and is also crucial for potential guests. This information allows people to choose the most optimal conditions for accommodation. Hotel stars are an official confirmation of the quality and variety of services, as well as a guarantee of security.
At the end of January, the Ribas Rooms Lutsk hotel in Lutsk officially received the 3-star category. This is an interesting case in our portfolio. For this project, we managed to quickly assemble a team, set up the right communication, including with the certification body. So, at the beginning of cooperation, the hotel was almost completed, but in two months we simply brought it to perfection, observing all the requirements of the DSTU standard of the 3-star category.
As a result, the hotel received a star rating a month after the opening and the first meeting of the commission. This once again proves that such vital for the facility decisions is necessary to delegate to experienced professionals.
It is important to note that the star rating allows, within the framework of the legislation of Ukraine, to place a slot machine hall or a casino in the hotel building, depending on the star rating of the object. This guarantees a stable income and an increase in rental income. In the Ribas Rooms Lutsk project, it was crucial to get the star rating since the owner of the building wanted to place slot machines there.
