After breakfast, they will check out. Then they will be called to express their opinions which, from today, will be on 5 categories. Their votes, from 1 to 10, will in fact evaluate the location, room, services, price and, for the first time, breakfast, the meal that every self-respecting hotel considers its flagship.
Also this year some thematic episodes will show new frontiers and new trends in hospitality and hospitality. From the glamping of Maremma, still not very common in Italy, to real luxury campsites whose name is a mix between the words “glamor” and “camping”, to low cost hotels, which will show how it is possible to stay with a few euros in cities like Milan, whose cost of living is not that low.

For work, but also for passion, the Chef has traveled all over the world, without ever setting aside his unique, sophisticated and elegant style, thus gaining the title of expert in hotel hospitality in the field. With his votes, at the end of each episode he will be able to confirm or revolutionize the verdict resulting from the votes of the 4 protagonists of the episode. Only one of the competing hoteliers will thus be awarded an economic contribution to be reinvested in their company.
