It depends on the size of your hotel. One of the key elements of our success is the ability to save labour costs.

The franchisee is also responsible for their recruitment and training.

Yes, of course. We fully respect the uniqueness of the hotels and support all special "home" services. But the franchisee must strictly guarantee the quality of the products.

Is it possible to have more than one SIVEK HOTELS franchise?
Yes, sure. But it is completely up to the company SIVEK HOTELS to decide whether or not granting another franchise. It depends on the achieved results.
