History joined with state-of-the-art technologies

THE MOTTO of the European historic hoteliers is ‘a story to tell.’ But when representing their countries’ national cultural traditions, historic heritage, and architecture they do not remain immersed only in history. They use the latest and most modern ways to promote their hotels and services and be helpful to their clients as possible. In middle of July, the Historic Hotels of Europe released a free iPhone application enabling travellers to search for traditional and authentic hotels throughout Europe, to find available rooms, and to book their stays.

THE MOTTO of the European historic hoteliers is ‘a story to tell.’ But when representing their countries’ national cultural traditions, historic heritage, and architecture they do not remain immersed only in history. They use the latest and most modern ways to promote their hotels and services and be helpful to their clients as possible. In middle of July, the Historic Hotels of Europe released a free iPhone application enabling travellers to search for traditional and authentic hotels throughout Europe, to find available rooms, and to book their stays.

The Association of Historic Hotels of Slovakia, as a member of the Historic Hotels of Europe organisation, benefits this way from membership in the group. This enables it an access to financially demanding technologies also on markets which are for Slovak hotels otherwise accessible only with difficulty, the association wrote in its press release.

Through the new application, the user can search by situation, kind of lodging, activities and location. Interactive maps help travellers find the nearest hotel in the area. Once the hotel of their dreams is located, the user finds all relevant information about the property, can display pictures and has the choice to check availabilities, to call the property or to book online.
