Feel Safe at NH

Global measures for your safety

Now that we can start to dream, explore and travel again, it is more important than ever for us to be able to do so safely with peace of mind. At NH Hotel Group we want you to be able to keep enjoying and having unforgettable experiences at our hotels. So we have created Feel Safe at NH.
We have implemented a series of measures, approved by safety experts, in all our hotels. Implementation of some of these measures may alter the availability of some services. This is to ensure that our guests, employees and suppliers can continue to enjoy all our destinations without any worries, reducing the risks of infection by Coronavirus to a minimum .

The citizen test is free of charge for guests from Germany, guests of other nationalities incur a cost of € 30 per test.
