  • Shortage of prime investment product causing a decrease in overall transaction volume in CEE.

    In the first three quarters of 2018 the total investment volume in six CEE countries (Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Russia) reached EUR 8.9bn. The CEE investment market is still very attractive to institutional investors, a shortage of prime product being the biggest challenge. Investment activity in Poland exceeded the value recorded for the whole of 2017 and is expected to reach a record high of EUR 6bn by the year’s end. Sustainable and solid performance was recorded in Hungary and Slovakia with volumes hitting those in 2017, whereas Russia, the Czech Republic and Romania are expected to close the year at lower investment volumes, slightly below the 2017 levels.  Q4 2018 is expected to be the most active period in terms of investment activity, with a promising pipeline. If all planned transactions are closed as expected, the total investment volume in the six countries of the region will reach approximately EUR 13bn, less than the previous year’s EUR 15.3bn.

  • The prices in hotels across Central & Eastern Europe are rising. The average room rates are reaching historical peaks, driving superior investment returns

    In Central and Eastern Europe*, hotel owners are experiencing record months in terms of average daily rates which was the primary driver of the double-digit RevPAR (Revenue per available room) growth recorded by central European cities in 2017. The growing trend was also seen in the first half of this year (H1 2018). The only exception was Warsaw where RevPAR dropped slightly due to declining occupancy, yet the prices of rooms increased as in other capitals. The higher room rates translated to notable gains in hotels’ profitability which brought significant interests from investors. The lack of hotel properties available for sale and shortage of development sites in prime locations is turning attention to conversions of existing buildings into hotels. As the demand continues to grow and the development pipeline remains limited in most markets (except for Warsaw and Vienna), profitability is expected to stay strong also in the coming years.
