HRS was founded in 1972 as a service provider for booking hotel rooms during trade fairs in Cologne. It started in a former greengrocer’s shop and had just one employee and two telephone lines. Today, the HRS Group has a firmly established reputation as the leading hotel expert with a global client base, and offices throughout the globe. We are the world’s leading hotel solutions provider and enable business and leisure travelers to search, book and stay in control of their hotel accommodation. It is our goal to make the booking experience simple and smart.
