EMO Hannover 2023
The stay at the hotel went very well for the whole team, very good reception, very correct rooms. Thanks to Travel to fairs, we were able to get last minute booking changes, thank you Tom Parker for your efficiency and kindness throughout the process!
The vicinity of the hotel was excellent and the people were friendly enough and the room was clean.
I did miss no air conditioning and there was only 1 power point which was nowhere near the desk which seemed strange.
The service from Jack was perfect and he kept me informed all the way so if I come across again I will use you guys again.
The trip went quite well. We only had one issue because our team was late for the check in on Friday and they couldn’t reach the hotel by phone.
There was just an answering machine in German and that was not useful, but they had no problem checking in in the end.
They’ve told me the hotel was nice and everything ran smoothly so thank you for all the support.
SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2023
Our trip to the EMO Hanover fair was successful, overall it was a great trip with lots to see and do in Hanover.
We were very satisfied with the accommodation, although we were initially looking for a hotel, we actually preferred the apartment accommodation to that of a hotel.
The service we received from Jane was GREAT.
From the moment Anton sent the request for accommodation, we received a number of accommodation options within our price range.
We have received prompt detailed responses to all the questions we had.
The payment process was simple and easy.
The location of the accommodation was perfect, a nice quiet neighbourhood with easy access to trains for transport and a number of restaurants within walking distance.
I will definitely recommend Travel To Fairs to anyone looking for accommodation when travelling abroad to attend Trade shows.
