Hotels as special purpose real estate

As operational real estate, hotels are a specialised asset class. Aside from the characteristics of the real estate itself, both the operation and the operator must be analysed, leading to a broader risk and return spectrum. In-depth market knowledge and experienced advisors are crucial, especially in uncertain times. We can assist you in meeting every challenge associated with investing in or selling hotel properties, as well as financing acquisitions, developments and renovation programs, helping you assess the opportunities, leading to well-informed decisions to ultimately deliver the best possible returns, while minimising risks.

Our many years of experience allow us to combine operational expertise with up-to-date hotel market knowledge. We cover every hotel segment, from budget and mid-market to luxury hotels in city and resort locations across Switzerland. We advise on the financing, purchase and sale of classic hotel operations as well as resort hotels, serviced apartments, apart hotels and co-living assets.
