Hotel Investments

CBRE supports investors and owner-occupiers in the targeted implementation of hotel transactions, from strategy development through to marketing and contract negotiation.


Hotels as special-purpose properties 

As operational properties, hotels are a specialised class of property. Besides the characteristics of the individual property, both the operation and the operator must be analysed, which can lead to a broader opportunity and risk profile. In-depth market knowledge and top-level advice are absolutely essential, especially in uncertain times. We can assist you in meeting every challenge associated with investing in or selling hotel properties, and help you to assess the risks and make well-informed decisions to deliver the best possible returns and minimise risks.

Advice on all types of hotel property 

Our many years of experience allow us to combine operational expertise with up-to-date hotel property knowledge and expertise. We cover every hotel segment, from budget and mid-market hotels to luxury hotels in Germany’s Top 7 cities and hotels in the B and C-grade cities and in more rural locations. We advise on the purchase and sale of classic hotel operations and also resort hotels and serviced apartments. We also guide you through the different operational structures, whether leased, managed, franchised or owner-operated.
