  • Manotel extensively renovated all the hotels since the early 2000s. The quality of the renovations achieved is very high and Manotel Group focuses on providing "4 or 5 star" quality accommodation but without the full services necessary to gain such a star rating
  • Manotel represents over 15% of the combined 3- and 4-star Geneva city hotel market

  • Manotel has historically performed strongly, maintaining revenue and GOP growth over the long-term, despite the recent economic downturn

Finial Capital is the group's historical shareholder and has strived over the past 40 years to continually improve the group's offering quality and performance. To achieve this, Finial Capital implemented a long-term active asset management plan which comprised of the sale of non-core assets and the subsequent CHF 125 million refurbishment plan of the remaining six assets. In 2007, Finial brought in a strategic joint-venture partner to bolster its revenue management expertise and prepare the group's expansion.
