Limited Service Hotels.

Intelligent concepts. Higher revenues.

Impressing your guests.

The day-to-day challenge.

You already know that location and service are important to your guests. That the price-performance ratio has to be right. That you’re operating in an attractive and competitive market. And that is exactly why you need to stand out from the competition. This is something a compelling F&B concept can help you do. Even if you’re under-staffed, short on kitchen space, and don’t have much freedom to experiment.

Make your vision a reality. Planning and implementing your future concept? No time like the present.

Just the way you want it.

Concept and planning.

Trends, ideas, customer preferences - RATIONAL’s concepts reflect them all. And we tailor them specifically to your most pressing concerns. Whether you want help in every area or just one.

“We needed an oven partner who had the best product and who could also help us figure out how to get in close to 2,000 properties in under a year.”

Adam Handler, director of global guest experience, Holiday Inn Express

Advantages you’ll enjoy: Experienced partners, individual consultation, solid implementation.


The perfect food concept for your customers.

7 AM. Breakfast room: packed. Guests: in a rush. Expectations: as international as your clientèle. Time is tight. But this is where the iCombi Pro really shines. Use it to prepare the hot components of your breakfast buffet, for example - pancakes, omelets, and bacon, all fresh and delicious.

With one goal in mind. Consistent quality. No matter who’s using the iCombi Pro.

In service around the clock.

Because you never know what or when your guests will order.

Sandwiches, pizza, burgers, pastries. Mornings, lunchtime, afternoon, evenings. Whenever your customers are hungry, it’s ready to work. Using it is quick and straightforward, and after a few minutes of cleaning, you’d never know it was even used.


Expand your menu.

Generate additional business.

A quick drink at the bar and a bite to eat at the end of a stressful day? Music to your customers’ ears. Delight them with chicken wings, mozzarella sticks, burgers, pizza, and curry dishes. Fast, reliable, and prepared just the way you want them. At any time of day, using fresh or convenience products.

The help you need. Special requests? No sweat. React quickly thanks to cooking intelligence.

Convenience products.

No matter what type of product you’re preparing, the iCombi Pro adjusts its settings to give you the results you want. For example, iProductionManager can help you determine what to prepare when, so that your customers can enjoy consistently delicious food throughout the day.

Frozen foods.

The iCombi Pro is so powerful; it can prepare frozen food in the blink of an eye. The cooking system detects the size and condition of the food, and adjusts the cooking process accordingly. The result: Uniformly great food.

Freshly cooked.

Perfectly prepared steak and fresh vegetables can be challenging when you’re new in the kitchen. The iCombi Pro provides cooking paths for these and many other products, so its intelligence automatically handles everything. Now everyone can get expert-level results.

The iCombi Pro.

Intelligent, versatile, incredibly compact.

Within just 11 ft2, the iCombi Pro combines convection heat and steam into countless culinary possibilities. Whether it’s 2 meals or 200. Ready-to-serve meals, freshly cooked food, frozen and convenience products. Thanks to its climate management system and its cooking intelligence, every dish is an automatic success. Perfectly cooked. Even with maximum capacity loads. Or mixed loads. With no monitoring or checking required. 24 hours a day. That’s how the iCombi Pro guarantees excellent results. Over and over again.

When it comes down to it, the iCombi Pro only has one job: reliably delivering the same great results every single time. That’s why it’s equipped with so much intelligence - and why it offers such impressive productivity, quality, and simplicity. It detects whether you’re making one burger or 20, and adjusts its own parameters automatically. It helps you optimize your production schedule for speed or energy consumption and can help you keep your breakfast buffet perfectly stocked.

The goal: Doing everything possible to help you save time, energy, and raw product.

RATIONAL training.

The controls on the iCombi Pro are self-explanatory, so new personnel can master them in no time. RATIONAL chefs will train you and your employees based on your own food concept or one created for you by RATIONAL, so that you’ll get perfect results effortlessly from the very beginning.

InterContinental Hotels Group.

Breakfast as a competitive edge.

Stronger brand, more satisfied customers, increased market share - all thanks to HolidayInn Express’s new breakfast service in North America. RATIONAL assisted with everything from concept development to training. Now they’re using fresh ingredients to create delicious food every morning: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and piping-hot cinnamon rolls.

The result:
1,800 units installed in 8 months. Increased customer satisfaction with hotel breakfast and general services. Reduced product use while incorporating a larger percentage of fresh ingredients.

More flexibility, more reliability. Turn guests into loyal fans.


Keep an eye on everything.

In hotels, technology is the rule, not the exception. Booking systems, billing, personnel planning - everything’s digital, everything’s coordinated. Just like ConnectedCooking by RATIONAL. Recipe transmission, unit inspections, HACCP data, software updates, service remote access - our secure networking solution lets you do everything from your desk. For all networked RATIONAL units. Anywhere in the world. You can also access and save HACCP data from all cooking systems. Created a new menu? Send it around the world with just a click. All you need is a PC, tablet or smartphone.

Designed to help you make the most of your cooking systems
and gain enjoyment for years to come... and ensure that you’re never short of ideas.

An investment that’s worth it.

To the environment, to your bottom line, and to your hotel.

Let us help you get an idea of the savings you could enjoy by installing one or more iCombi Pro units. You’ll save a lot of space, for one thing: You can produce the same amount of food in a kitchen up to 60%* smaller. You’ll save investment costs: for example, the UltraVent Plus for the iCombi Pro doesn’t require a connection to the outside, and eliminates the need for additional ventilation around the cooking system. And you’ll save the environment: The iCombi Pro uses less energy, which means more sustainable production. You’ll also reduce your overproduction, use less fat, and cut your labor hours. Which adds up to major pluses for the environment as well as your bottom line.

The bottom line: It significantly reduces your costs. And conserves energy and water, too.

One cooking system.

So many possibilities.

Which challenges do you want to address with the help of an iCombi Pro? Choose from a variety of unit sizes and installation options to create a tailor-made solution. Don't see the one for you? Visit for additional options.

Inspiration. Skill. Achievement.

Let’s create the future together.

In the hotel business, if you don’t have a leg up on the competition today, you might not have guests tomorrow. Which makes it that much more important to regularly evaluate your concepts, gather input, and implement new ideas. That goes for your room decor as well as for your breakfast and bar food. And RATIONAL can help with all of the above. We offer knowledge. We offer experience. We offer new ideas. And we’ll always build on what we’ve already achieved together.

What does the future hold?
A wealth of new ideas and concepts to help you continue impressing your customers again and again.
