The fastest growing value-for-money hotel chain in Europe
x3 hotels in 10 years
Our ambition: 3,000 hotels in 2030
B&B HOTELS was founded in Brest in 1990 based on the idea of offering its customers comfortable hotels with a warm atmosphere and a pleasant design, all at the best price.
This guiding principle grew into a strong concept: providing the best “Value for Money”.
We have tripled our growth over the past 10 years and today, the group has more than 700 hotels in 15 countries. Since 2019 we have been majority-owned by the investment company Goldman Sachs. Between that time and 2022, B&B HOTELS opened more hotels than any other chain, anywhere, steadily increasing our market share and securing our path towards market leadership.
