According to an analysis by the European Hotel Investor Intentions Survey 2018 of CBRE, England, Germany and Spain continue to lead the hotel investment sector. According to the survey, 69 per cent of all investors favoured the opportunities in these countries with Great Britain leading the table.
The lion's share of hotel investments was achieved in Great Britain with an increase of 106 per cent compared to 2017, followed by Germany as the most popular target for real assets.
The German hotel sector scores with solid market principles, combined with favourable financing offers. Spain ranks in third place and since 2017 has recorded the highest growth rates compared to the previous year in the hotel investment market. France is in fourth place, Ireland and Italy have moved up to 5th place.
New additions to the ranking are Poland and the Czech Republic. Scoring places nine and ten, the two eastern European countries are represented in the hotel market for the first time. Both markets are currently highly frequented as they provide a positive stable performance, as the past years have shown.
In a clear reflection, 94 per cent of all investors have stated that they would either invest the same amount or more capital in hotel real estate than in the previous year.
