Czech hotels to adopt international star rating system in 2013
Czech hotels will next year adopt the European star rating system as set by the Hotelstars Union, the Czech hotels and restaurants association said on Wednesday. The Czech Republic joined the Hotelstars Union, an international association of hotels and restaurants active in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and eight other countries, in 2010. Since then, over 400 Czech establishments have met its quality standards and are allowed to display the stars. However, the system in each country was different. As of 2013, hotels that meet the union’s qualifying standards will be given a unified rating while those already holding one will have to reapply.
