Since the birth of the European Economic Community (EEC), Europe has become a continent in the true sense. The absence of borders mean that you can travel all round Europe, and never need to show your passport. And many people do, be it for business or pleasure.
No matter which country you find yourself in Europe, you will discover that each has retained its unique traditions and customs dating back to hundreds of years. These traditions, based around hospitality and friendship, is no more in evidence than in the hotels of Europe. From the Scandinavia countries to Spain and Portugal, from Paris to Bucharest, you can be sure that any hotel that you will stay in will have retained some of the flavors of the country. And thatís what makes the hotels of Europe so charming and unique.
In the fast paced world in which we live, it is now possible to jet hop from city to city within Europe in a matter of a few hours. The extremes of weather that is not unusual in the vastness of the continent means that many people take a short holiday either to get away from the sun or to get into it. They want to spend just a few days and be spoiled in the warmth and comfort of a good hotel, where their needs will be taken care of by friendly and attentive staff, from when they step into the reception until they pack their bags to leave.
European hotels have all had the finest of reputations for efficiency and professionalism in the way they manage their hotels, and in every major city you will find two to three four or five star hotels, each with a reputation as well as a history stretching back decades. Nowadays, European hotels are a mixture of tradition and modern. Visitors from all over the world flock to Europe for business and pleasure. They are well aware, when they get there, that they are guaranteed the best choice of hotels.
