Choose a spa through the Space website at www.spacehotels.it What attracts surfers most to the Space website www.spacehotels.it is the ability to do advanced searches based on client needs. A hotel can be selected not only based on its location but also on its essential services or even on clients' personal interests. There are dedicated sections that list location types (art cities, countryside, seaside, lakes or near airports, city centres, etc.) and services offered (Internet or Wi-Fi availability, parking facilities, indoor or outdoor swimming pools, restaurants, wellness centres, etc.). People travelling with their pets will find many accommodation options given that 68 of the Space Hotels affiliates accept animals.
Insertion of data in required fields results in a list of hotels that actually have rooms available and the best price for the entire stay (from the lowest to the highest rates). From there, one passes to the hotel page (with a description and photos) and can then make a reservation in a protected area in real time. For special requests and telephone reservations, one can call the toll free number at 800.813.013. The various sections also include a short description of the city, a Via Michelin map of the location indicating the position of the hotel and describing both the route to get there and the local weather.
