European Hotel Investment MarketView Q1 2019
European hotel real estate investment sustained a high tempo into 2019, totalling €23.0 billion for the twelve months to Q1. Strong investor demand continues to put pressure on yields with downward movement recorded in Iberia, Amsterdam and Helsinki.
Some of the key highlights include:
- The UK hotel deal volume was up +15.1% in the 12-months to Q1 2019, accounting for 35.5% of all investment in the European region;
- Spain was the second highest European country in terms of hotel investment volume, up +17.5% year-on-year;
- Germany, a supply constrained investment market, experienced modest growth of 7.1% but still accounted for 17.0 per cent of total European investment.
- Other notable risers included the CEE region, driven largely by growth in the Czech Republic, and Switzerland.
