Involve your staff

Good housekeeping: The staffs turns off the TVs and mini bars in unoccupied rooms, closes the curtains in summer and opens them in winter.


Involve your guests

Guest involvement: Guests are asked to leave towels that they want to be changed on the floor – otherwise they will be used for one more day. This method conserves energy.


Protect the building from the extreme temperature

Building insulation: Insulation to conserve heat loss during the winter and maintain cooler temperatures during the summer has been installed.

Window insulation: All the windows are insulated to prevent energy leaving the building.


Improve equipment efficiency

Lighting & electricity

All bulbs are energy efficient; there are motion sensors for lights in the corridors.

Integration of renewable energies

Hot water and space heating

Hot water is produced by solar panels that are installed on the roof of the hotel.
