NH Hotels is one of those niche European hotel chains that is rarely seen in the UK (although there is one in London) but crops up quite frequently on the continent.
As well as the main NH Hotels brand, the group also includes Hesperia and nhow.
Whilst not a British Airways Executive Club partner, you CAN earn Avios points whilst staying with NH Hotels, Hesperia and nhow if you credit them to an Iberia Plus account. You can then move the points across to your BA or avios.com account via ‘Combine My Avios’ online.
The standard earning rate with NH Hotels, Hesperia and nhow is shown here at iberia.com. You earn 450 Avios per night for a 5-star, 350 per night for a 4-star and 200 Avios per night for a 2-star.
Until 30th April, you will earn double Avios on a stay which includes a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. All hotels in the chain seem to offer a 3pm check-out and breakfast until noon on Sundays so they are not a bad choice for a weekend break.
Looking at the small print, this offer only appears to include hotels in Spain, Portugal, Germany, Austria and Switzerland so the London property may be out.
Separately, it is worth noting that you can also redeem Avios points for NH Hotels. On the face of it, it looks very expensive (to put it mildly) at 37,545 Avios per night for a 5-star. This drops to 26,000 Avios per night during a ‘promotional’ period, which is not defined!
You also need to book by telephone with the Iberia call centre in Spain, which is likely to prove a challenge for anyone who does not speak Spanish. More details on the NH / Iberia web page.
