Hotel Investment report | 2021

hotels investment report 2021
Hotel assets led commercial real estate investment in 2021, registering €3,180 million. Spain recorded its third best historical year in terms of hotel investment

Portfolio transactions bounced back strongly, accounting for 39% of total investment. Hotel chains stood as the main players on the sell-side, portraying the strong liquidity pressure they have faced during the past two years.

During 2021, we have seen new national and international investors formalise their first transactions in our market, starting 2022 with a pipeline of over €1,500 million and a positive trend that will remain throughout the year.
