Since 1971 we have seen lots of things: the good, the bad and the downright funny. Click to check the tribute photoshoot to our birth decade.
We started life in 1971 with a single vision: to combine style, substance and comfort to create a hotel like no other. Fifty years later, we now have over 20 hotels under the Penta brand across Europe and Asia. Our spaces are more than a place to rest your head, they are an expression and celebration of the neighbourhoods they belong to. They offer contemporary explorers and business travellers a home away from home. At the heart of every location sits the Pentalounge - a bar, cafe and reception hybrid - a living room and a welcome to all.

We are an honest bunch, never failing to greet our guests with curiosity and kindness. We welcome everyone in the same way, there’s no hierarchy here. We’re open, ready to answer and ask questions.
We’re humble, assured in our knowledge, but never boastful. We have a warmth and familiarity. Wherever we are in the world, Penta hold the key to unlocking the best of the area and we are always happy to share what we know.
We find joy in the world around us. We enjoy a good laugh. Our sense of humour is subtle, understated but impactful. We find the fun.
Penta has strong morals, we believe in giving the best service, offering a comfortable and safe place to stay and giving back to our communities. We don’t preach, we don’t boast - but we try our best to leave things better than we found them.
Fads may come and go, but Penta is here to stay. We have seen it all, since we started in 1971: the good, the bad, and the downright funny. We are agile, but our foundations are strong. Our long experience makes us the perfect mentor for our clients and guests.
NOT a luxury design concept
We thought about white marble floors, but we’d keep spilling beer on them. We have been told minimalism looks money, but we’d rather have character.
NOT a home for racists and bigots
If things like someone’s skin color or what goes on in their bedroom occupy your mind, we suggest you get yourself a hobby, pack your suitcase and leave.
NOT a huge global chain
They say: go big or go home. We say: put some heart in it. Our hotels are real places rooted in real neighbourhoods, not a soulless box with a fancy logo slapped on it.
Designed to reflect the many needs of our guests, the lounge can be made your own. Whether you're there to eat or drink, relax and read or play and connect, the lounge caters to everyone.
Receptionist or bartender? They are what you want them to be.
