Eco responsibility

  • What steps has the hotel taken to protect the environment?

    At the heart of our commitment to social and environmental responsibility (SER), our hotels have abandoned the use of plastic bottles. To raise our guests' awareness of daily gestures in favor of the environment, HappyCulture hotels set up waste sorting systems and display "eco-gestures". During breakfasts, we contribute to reducing our carbon footprint by favoring the use of local and bulk products. In addition, a Purezza water fountain is available in the lobby of our establishments. With a view to promoting responsible consumption, we encourage our guests, for stays of two nights or more, to dispense with the cleaning service, generating a saving of 60 liters of water.
