With the rise of COVID-19, we took an extra step regarding our safety standards and guidelines. With the additional certification “Safehotels CovidClean Certification”, we ensure the highest level of hygiene and safety for our guests, staffs and suppliers.
Our properties have been specifically audited on site by an independent expert and obtained the “Safehotels CovidClean Certification”, consisting of more than 160 extra checkpoints. This additional certification prevents the spreading of COVID-19 and ensures the highest level of safety and security for our guests, staff and suppliers.
Since several years Thon Hotels Brussels works with Safehotels, the originator of The Global Hotel Security Standard ©, the only independently recognized hotel safety and security certification standard in the world. In order to provide the highest level of Safety & Security, the company audits our hotels every year.
“We decided to get these certifications because we wanted to get an independent security audit that goes further than the local requirements. Offering security to our guests and to our employees is one of our key priorities. The certification process helped us to go the extra mile in terms of safety and security. It also confirms that our teams are well trained and aware about security procedures”, says Hans Van der biesen, General Manager at Thon Hotel EU & Assistant Area Director Benelux.
Safehotels is the only independent hotel safety and security certification company with global reach across the world. The company supports hotels to properly develop and implement safety and security standards and procedures that go further than the local laws require. The cooperation with several travel industry associations and organizations such as UNISDR (United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction) shows the importance of safety in the hotel industry.

- Hotel property
- Cleaning and hygiene
- Social distancing
