20th January 2008
Space Hotels has been very successful in 2008 with five new affiliations: the 4 Viale Masini Design Hotel in Bologna, the Villa Vecchia in Frascati, the Grand Hotel Oriente in Naples, the Miglio d'Oro Park Hotel in Herculaneum, the Garden Hotel in Siena and the Poggio del Sole Resort in Ragusa. These new entries join over 100 existing Italian affiliates, confirming the value of a brand that has been a hotel reservations landmark in both Italy and the world since 1974. This accomplishment helps to realise and strengthen Space Hotels' long-term strategy of having its network across all of Italy.
Competent, helpful staff
One reason for this success is the high level of professionalism of Space Hotels' staff that has grown with the company and is very capable of meeting the needs of its clientele.
A non-invasive affiliation
Another reason for this success is that being a Space Hotels' affiliate does not force hotels to adopt standards or change their identity and individuality. In fact, Space Hotels exalts the unique characteristics of its affiliates. Moreover, Space Hotels does not just handle individual hotel reservations but also works in the meeting and conference market, where it offers its clientele a complete, dedicated service finding ideal spaces based on specific needs. 'Space for Meeting' is Space Hotels' annual guide for organising meetings and events that covers 3,400 meeting rooms in over 80 hotels in Italy and 850 worldwide.
THE FIVE NEW ENTRIES
The 4 Viale Masini Design Hotel
The 4 Viale Masini Design Hotel is located in the centre of Bologna just a few hundred metres from the train station. This modern and welcoming hotel is housed in a fully renovated 1970's building of great architectural interest. It has been fitted with cutting-edge technological systems to ensure its guests the maximum of comfort and relaxation. Opening in the spring of 2008.
The Hotel Villa Vecchia in Frascati
The Hotel Villa Vecchia is located in Frascati in a magnificent position amongst Roman castles, immersed in a splendid park and surrounded by art and nature. The hotel has meeting rooms and a conference centre, which are perfectly equipped to satisfy the needs of its clientele including Internet connections, AV projectors and all necessary technical assistance. The terrace has a magnificent view of Rome and the famous Roman castles nearby.
The Grand Hotel Oriente in Napoli
Located in the historic centre of Naples near the Stock Exchange and the seaside, the Grand Hotel Oriente is an active and dynamic part of Neapolitan life. Due to its strategic position, a knowledgeable international clientele has been choosing this hotel for business and leisure visits since it opened in the 1940s.
The Miglio d'Oro Park Hotel in Herculaneum
The Miglio d'Oro Park Hotel is located right near the archaeological site of Herculaneum. Its 18th-century Vesuvian villa is immersed in a park of more than two hectares filled with holm oaks and citrus fruit trees. It rests at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius facing onto the sparkling gulf of Naples, making it an exceptional backdrop for an unforgettable stay. Three elegant halls and a garden restaurant that seats 400 are part of the hospitality in this park, where fountains, chalets and antique spas make every visit, whether for business or leisure, an extraordinary experience.
The Garden Hotel in Siena
The Hotel Garden is housed in a prestigious antique villa immersed in a park of ancient holm oaks north of Siena. In a magnificent garden adjacent to the villa are three guesthouses, one of which is an antique residence that has just been renovated and decorated with period furniture. The rich decoration of its rooms with grotesques and trompe-l'oeil creates a pleasant contrast to the sobriety of the architecture.
The Poggio del Sole Resort in Ragusa
Located on the road from Ragusa to the seaside, the Poggio del Sole Resort dominates a breathtaking plateau in the Iblei mountains immersed in a landscape of quarries, hills, carob trees, olive trees and a criss-crossing of stone walls. Its central position near the major towns of Val di Noto means that the hotel is both just near enough to visit the local baroque monuments and just far enough away to enjoy nature in this ancient land.
