Hotel Lab more than an innovation contest
Here at Eurostars Hotels we are committed to development. For this first edition, we set ourselves a new challenge: to reinvent the concept of a hotel. To do so, we created Eurostars Hotel Lab, our 1st Hotel Space Innovation and Design Contest. With this contest, we challenged participants to design a room that adapts to the present and future needs of new travellers.

Our panel of judges had no easy task in this first edition. We received 135 projects from 19 different countries. Have a look in the awards section to see who won!
