Mews makes cloud-based property management software that helps hotels and hostels automate their operations so they can focus on their guests. Founded by ex-hoteliers who were frustrated by the lack of a suitable platform on the market, Mews has built technology with a modern and intuitive interface with user experience at its core. The open platform allows hoteliers to quickly plug in their favourite apps, tools and services and to manage their PMS from any device and at anytime.
Richard Valtr, Founder of Mews
Richard Valtr is an entrepreneur and ex-hotelier with an extensive background in hotel investment and management. Richard was educated at UCL in London before returning to his native Czech Republic where he became a project manager for a number of property developments, culminating in the creation of the Emblem Hotel. The idea for Mews originated from his time spent leading the concept development, design, procurement and project management of the Prague-based luxury hotel where he experienced the inadequacies of traditional hotel management systems first-hand.
