HOTEL STAR RATING
Hotels in Greece are ranked on a scale of 1 to 5 stars.
Each hotel is classified into one of the five categories if they follow the minimum standards and collect the minimum number of points required for classification.
For the issuance of a Special Operation Sign (E.S.L.) according to the new classification system, the owner of tourist accommodation makes an application to the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels, which is appointed to grant the Certificate of Classification.
Then, the owner selects the Accredited Certification Body that carries out the on-site inspection of the tourist accommodation and prepares the Technical Report.
The Technical Report includes all the required and optional criteria of the tourist accommodation, according to its Star classification. In the end, the owner submits the Technical Report in the corresponding Tourist Office Service and the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels issues the classification certificate.
