The Property Management Company
All of the serviced apartments Lisbon will be fully managed and operated by Numa, an experienced German property management company headquartered in Berlin. Nusa has a portfolio of 2,700 apartments spread across a total of 27 major cities in Europe. Over the years Numa has perfected its fully automated booking and check-in system for guests at 90% of their properties which allows them to reduce their operating costs to 60% less than traditional hotels. This setup allowed the company to easily adapt to the pandemic in a way that other hotel operators and property management companies struggled with. In fact, throughout the pandemic occupancy rates remained steady at 85%. As Numa looks to continue its expansion across Europe we can expect to start seeing the brand’s presence increase in major European cities of the UK, Spain, Holland, and Portugal. The firm recently teamed up with a property investment company that will be investing in excess of €500m in hotels over the next 24 months so Numa may well become a household name in the not-so-distant future.
