Job Description


Company description:
penta is not a hotel, penta is a state of mind. In a world of bland hotel experiences, pentahotels creates a new cult for like-minded travellers who are tired of the same old conventions. Our people don’t want boring, and we don’t do normal, so it’s a match made in heaven. Welcome to penta.

There are penta hotels in Germany, the UK, Belgium, China, Hong Kong, Austria, Czech Republic and France. In Belgium penta has 4 hotels in Brussels, Brussels Aiport, Leuven and Liège.

Job description:
You've heard about the sexy, expanding hotel brand that's been flexing its muscles? Flashing some tasty ink. Self assured, different and defiant. Word has been getting out about penta. Across Europe. Across Asia. Punters loving it. Definitely not another bland night in another bland hotel.
But there are still those poor souls who don't know the secret. You need to reach them. Show them the penta Experience. Save them from the bland. And you can tell them all about it. 
Join pentahotel Leuven. Together you can stand out like a carnival of style and colour in a world gone boring.
