Boutique Hotels in Berlin Unite with New Booking Site
Seven boutique hotels located across Germany's capital have joined together in creating a booking site called BoutiqueHotelsinBerlin.com. No hotel on the site has more than 200 rooms, and only two have been operating for more than three years. Customers can search by location and compare notes on the properties' themes, rooms, and facilities.
Granted, this is not an extensive collection by any means for a city as big as Berlin, but we like the concept of seeing the little guys join forces. We assume more properties will jump on the newly-launched site over the next year, giving the bigger, more SEO dominate hotel chains a little competition as travelers continue the trend of seeking out small, more authentic properties around the globe.
We have seen a few boutique hotel collections and websites here in the States, but not so much in the case of unconnected, individual properties within individual cities. We would love to see this sort of search engine become available in cities like New York, Chicago, San Fran, etc. As of now, we really only see sites that dive into narrow, organized collections of properties.
