Hotel Lab More than an innovation contest
At Eurostars Hotels we are committed to development, and this is why we have set ourselves a challenge: to reinvent the concept of a hotel.

This year we’re back with the 2nd Edition of the Contest on Innovation and Design in Hotel Spaces. This time we encourage you to design and create the spaces and furnishings of a hotel reception lobby which meets the present and future needs of new travellers.

During the forthcoming months, this lobby-bar will be your laboratory of ideas. Detect problems, create innovative solutions, experiment and design the perfect room.

The Hotel Lab jury will choose the project that best conveys the spirit of innovation embodied in Eurostars Hotels’ values. Still haven’t decided whether to participate?
