A&O unite hostel (Book Orange) and hotel (Book Blue) under one roof. Additional components such as seminar rooms, breakfast buffet, lobby and bars are always available for both categories. The hostel areas are used each year by around 15.000 class trips; more than 70 percent of A&O’s guests book their accommodation online. The A&O target markets are leisure/city tourism (28 percent), groups/class trips (60 percent) and business tourism (12 percent). The successful concept is based on 3 fundamental pillars: professionalism, good location and accessibility for all who want to have an inexpensive, yet central place to stay.
