Mews demonstrates outstanding growth in the ten years since first customer

The innovative hotel tech company continue to see a huge uptake in their guest-centric vision of hospitality. 

[PRAGUE, 23 October] Mews, the industry-leading hospitality cloud, is celebrating 10 years since the very first hotel went live on its platform. The Emblem Prague Hotel was the first to embrace the new generation of hospitality and remains a Mews customer to this day. 


“It’s amazing how much Mews has changed in the decade since we onboarded with them,” said Helena Valtrova, General and Sales Manager at The Emblem Prague Hotel. “The platform is now even more sophisticated, with more features that save us time and prioritize the guest experience. But what’s also notable are the things that haven’t changed: a true passion for hospitality and a commitment to continuous development.” 

Mews now powers over 3,500 hotels, hostels, apartment groups and more across 85 countries around the world. Its growth in recent years has been rapid, securing a Series C investment of $185 million last year, and acquiring seven hospitality companies to date. 2023 has seen the team grow by 25%, and the number of Mews customers has increased by a third in the last nine months. 

“Reflecting on our journey, I can't believe Helena trusted us to build her a PMS to run a jewel of a hotel in the centre of Prague." said Richard Valtr, Mews Founder, "I'm so proud of how far Mews has come since then. It's thanks to the talent and ambition of our team, and the ongoing support of our customers, that we've been able to continue pursuing our vision of remarkable, guest-centric hospitality. I can't wait to see what the next ten years will bring 

The tech company has also seen plenty of industry acclaim. In 2023, Mews was named ‘World's Best Hotel PMS Solutions Provider’ and ‘World's Best Independent Hotel PMS Solutions Provider’ at the World Travel Tech Awards. Hotel Tech Report named Mews Best Place to Work in Hotel Tech for two years running in 2021 and 2022. 

When The Emblem Prague Hotel onboarded, Mews had no more than a dozen employees. Now, the company employes almost 850 people, with dozens of open roles currently available. You can see their career opportunities here.
