Noise is the No. 1 complaint among hotel guests. 82% of people will be less likely to book a hotel if they read bad reviews online. In addition, 75% of noise complaints are not reported to the hotel; rather, dissatisfied guests immediately tell their friends and family, and post their complaint on social media.
While noise control is an essential component when creating an atmosphere, it is one which is often overlooked when designing hotel interiors. Acoustic comfort is just as important as the design of the space. A beautifully decorated space in which guests feel uncomfortable completely misses the point.
The Quiet Room Label Concept guarantees acoustic comfort.
The Quiet room® Label Concept was introduced by the Sound Insulation Knowledge Centre (Kenniscentrum Geluidsisolatie – KGI). This is the first and only objective quality certificate for hotels in terms of soundproofing. The Quiet room® Label offers benefits for both property owners and hotel chains. With this certificate, property owners have a better chance of letting or selling their property. With the Quiet room® Label, the hotel itself can show its guests that its rooms are quiet.
Even if the design of the hotel room is spectacular, any praise from the guests will be completely cancelled out if they do not enjoy the total experience. Acoustic comfort is therefore essential, and choosing the right underlay can make all the difference.
