The team

We are a modern, networked organization of qualified experts and social entrepreneurs. The team in the Netherlands is made up of 15 loyal and experienced professionals who dedicate their spare time to Hotel con Corazón. When the number of hotels increases, we intend to hire one or two paid employees to manage, monitor and advise on a continuous basis.
