From theory to practice: a Vatelien opens his own hotel!

Three years ago, Barney Hoang finished his studies at Vatel Switzerland. He has now accomplished his dream by opening his first hotel 6 months ago.


Originally from Vietnam, Barney chose Switzerland for his studies. A country he considers to be "the world reference in terms of hotel training". And it is more precisely in Vatel Switzerland that he decided to settle down. The main reason? A unique hotel of application in Switzerland allowed him to experience and understand the workings of an establishment in all its aspects. 

Through theoretical and practical courses, but also through internships, Barney acquired, during his time at Vatel Switzerland, all the necessary skills to make his dream come true.  With suitcases full of the essential tools to the success of his project, the young graduate returned to Vietnam, and to his hometown of Hanoi.  He first consolidated his knowledge by working in the marketing department of the Hotel***** Mövenpick Hanoi, before setting off in 2019.

In a building that is a vestige of the French colonial period, the hotel combines modernity and tradition while offering service and experience straight from Switzerland, of which he is now an indisputable ambassador.

We wish Barney good luck and lots of success to the Commencer Hotel !
