IT'S A DOG'S LIFE!
Hospitality and exclusive services for four-legged friends: they are also special guests!
Pet-friendly Space Hotels affiliates in Italy offer large open spaces, sleeping cots, bowls, toys and even customised meals to their animal guests.
For more than a decade, Space Hotels affiliates have been promoting pet-friendly hospitality, where animals are not just accepted but are actually welcomed guests. To help choose the perfect pet-friendly hotel, the homepage of the Space Hotels website (www.spacehotels.it) has a quick, intuitive search system that helps travellers find the destinations best suited to their needs.
Attention to animal friends goes beyond the hotel room: many Space Hotels affiliates offer pets and their owners brochures and staff that provide information regarding leash-free parks, stores with pet articles and food, veterinary clinics and much more!
For example, at the Cappello Rosso in Bologna, travellers with pets will find food and water bowls and an updated list of veterinarians and pet-friendly parks and restaurants waiting for them in their rooms. The Hotel Savoy in Pesaro offers selected pet food and provides information regarding animal-friendly parks, beaches and restaurants.
