Brazilian hotel chain Vert Hotéis now accepts bitcoin

Now Accepting | January 31, 2017 By:

Hotel chain Vert Hotéis announced it has added bitcoin to the list of accepted payment methods for three of the hotels managed by the Brazil-based company.

Bitcoin is now accepted in hotels Ramada Encore Minascasa, Ramada Encore Virgínia Luxemburgo and eSuites Luxemburgo, all of which are located in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

“We are talking about connecting with a crowd that is more used to technological innovations, meaning, new clients that have already joined this currency, which to us represents no cost and only increases the potential for our business opportunities,” said Pollyana Sousa, general manager at Ramada Encore Virgínia Luxemburgo.

However, the company’s website does not yet show a BTC payment option when booking a room. Nevertheless, a Vert Hotéis customer service representative did confirm to Bitcoinist that the three hotels have indeed started accepting Bitcoin. What’s more, the decision stemmed from the individual hotels themselves and not from Vert Hotéis management after receiving “multiple requests” from customers.
