Digital and sustainable entertainment offer in the hotel

A digital and therefore sustainable entertainment offering for hotel guests succeeds when it is also easily accessible for hotel guests. The Raphael Hotel Wälderhaus shows how such an offer can be implemented for guests.

The Best Western Hotel Raphael Hotel Wälderhaus is holistically designed for sustainability. With a lot of wood and little “twaddle” this concept is implemented – so each hotel room is named after a tree species. For energy generation, for example, the focus is on sustainable sources such as geothermal energy and solar systems. Sustainability is then also reflected in the use of modern technology. In order to go paperless even in day-to-day hotel operations, the hotel relies on a digital guest folder with an integrated reading circle for its guests.

All hotel information and services are digitally mapped via the digital guest directory. Hotel guests do not need to download an additional app aplication for this. You can access the digital service via a QR code or a link in the booking confirmation of the hotel reservation.

Digital and Sustainable - This is how the solutions are in use at the Raphael Hotel Wälderhaus

“With sharemagazines embedded in straiv’s technology, the stay in our hotel becomes a special guest experience. Sharemagazines offers our guests a large selection of newspapers and magazines. This way, every guest can read individually, sustainably and digitally via their own terminal device. The overall satisfaction is increased and it fits perfectly with our sustainable house,” Marc Dechow, Managing Director of the Best Western Hotel Hamburg International about the Raphael Hotel Wälderhaus.
