Itelligent Quality Joins Space Hotels
The Hotel iQ, a four-star hotel based on a revolutionary concept located in the centre of Rome, joined Space Hotels in January 2013. "The Space Hotels Group is very attentive to market developments – explains its General Director Lidia Rescigno – and is very pleased to welcome the affiliation of such an innovative hotel."
"The name 'iQ' refers to 'intelligence quotient', however, we interpret it as 'intelligent quality', explains Resident Manager Diego Rossi. We focus on satisfying the primary needs of tourists offering tailor-made, high quality basic services that start with extreme cleanliness, an ensuite bathroom and all the expected comforts. Guests can then add whichever personalised services they require and are, therefore, sure that they are not paying for services they do not need. The hotel has been designed for new generation travellers, who appreciate being able to freely choose all the comforts offered by a modern, four-star hotel at competitive prices".
The hotel, which opened in June 2010, is in a very central location in Piazza del Teatro dell'Opera between Via Nazionale and Via Firenze. It is housed in a modern metal building, which was constructed in the 1970s and has since been completely renovated.
The hotel offers many services starting with the most requested one nowadays: a high-speed Wi-Fi connection that is free throughout the entire building. Its 88 guestrooms are fitted with a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a safe, a telephone and a mini-fridge, where guests can keep their food and drinks cold. There is also a self-service area with a variety of vending machines offering competitively priced coffee, water, wine, beer, drinks, sandwiches and snacks, as well as beauty and personal care products.
The hot and cold buffet breakfast is served on a partially covered, 400 m2 terrace with a view onto the Opera Theatre and the rooftops of Rome. Great attention is paid to guests' needs, for example, breakfast includes foods that cater to the tastes of foreign tourists, such as basmati rice. Moreover, every floor has a microwave oven and both hot water and ice dispensers. Guests can use a second large terrace anytime as a lounge for eating or relaxing, while beside it is a play area for children. The hotel has a self-service café offering modestly priced beverages and snacks, as well as a small bar in the lobby that is staffed around the clock. Other services include: free access to the gym and sauna; an innovative, automatic express checkout system with two stations in the lobby; a paid underground garage available upon reservation; a business centre. The originality of the offer continues with a token-operated laundry with a washer, dryer and iron! While all the rooms are non-smoking, each floor has open-air smoking areas facing onto an inner courtyard. The hotel also offers daily room cleaning, guest assistance by multilingual staff available 24 hours-a-day and video-surveillance, which it considers indispensable comforts.
"We have an excellent location: all of Rome's greatest attractions are either nearby or easily reached, continues Rossi. We advise our guests to also visit lesser-known museums, such as the nearby National Roman Museum, which houses one of the largest classical art collections in the world. It offers a look at the legends, the history and the daily life of ancient Rome."
