Welcome to the Hotelstars Union IN GERMANY!

To unify the hotel stars in the European firmament and make them comparable is the task that the Hotelstars Union set itself more than 10 years ago. What started with 7 countries has meanwhile grown to 19 member countries all over Europe. The focus of the star family is a harmonised hotel classification with common criteria and procedures in order to create transparency and security for the guest, but also to strengthen the reputation and quality of the hotel industry and thus hotel marketing.



Starstalk: Gewandhaus, Dresden

Classification, criteria, recognition - But what does it really mean to be a star hotel?

In our interview series "Starstalk", we visit hotels throughout Germany and show what is important for a star hotel. Using various star categories as examples, we highlight criteria, as well as advantages and disadvantages of the German Hotel Classification.

For our seventh interview, we visited the 5*****SUPERIOR Gewandhaus in Dresden and spoke with general manager Florian Leisentritt. Watch the full film here.
