Hotel rooms for people in need

Organized by hospitality industry veterans, #HospitalityHelps has a single goal: to provide temporary hotel accommodations to Ukrainian residents who are forced to leave their homes as a result of the war. It connects families on the run with hotels across Europe that want to provide free stays.
 
As a way to offer practical and immediate assistance, we at Design Hotels are actively encouraging our hotel community to partake in #HospitalityHelps. We are also supporting our hotels who are acting independently to assist refugees through initiatives that include providing free rooms, fundraising, working with local consulates, and more. If you or someone you know needs a place to stay, apply by clicking the Access #HospitalityHelps button. We will continue to update the lists below as more of our hotels sign-up.
