Dutch web travel company Booking.com

At the risk of being pedantic, booking.com is a subsidiary of the Nasdaq listed Priceline.com (PCLN) corporation. It is thus American rather than Dutch. Their European HQ is in Amsterdam but that is it.

Not that it matters either way (it’s good news in that it’s bringing jobs to Barcelona), but the info in Wikipedia suggests it was a Dutch firm that became an acquisition of Priceline. Either way, they are choosing to invest in Barcelona.
Harrods was owned until recently by an Egyptian, but it was/is still described as a British department store.
