THE PRICE IS RIGHT: WI-FI, BREAKFAST AND BOTTLED WATER ARE ALWAYS INCLUDEDIN THE ROOM RATES OF SPACE HOTELS' AFFILIATES
"In a time when most hotels are vying to offer the lowest possible prices", says Space Hotels' General Director, Lidia Rescigno, "we still believe that quality is the most important factor in the hospitality business. It is useless to sell rooms with breakfast excluded at low cost and then charge an exorbitant amount for breakfast. I think it is much more correct and transparent to propose an all-inclusive rate that protects guests from unpleasant surprises. In fact, Italian hotels have always offered room rates with breakfast included. As well, our international clientele, especially corporate clients, usually ask for all-inclusive quotes."
We have chosen to offer complimentary in-room water because we are aware of and sensitive to our guests' needs. "We asked ourselves what is the one thing that we drink all the time wherever we are, even in a hotel", explains Lidia Rescigno, "and we realised that it is definitely water. Nowadays, there is also a lot of buzz about the therapeutic benefits of keeping our bodies well hydrated. Well, we are very proud to have thought about the wellness of our guests before water and its beneficial properties have been talked about in the worldwide media."
Moreover, Space Hotels' ability to foresee and act ahead of time upon evolutions in market demand can be seen, above all, in our introduction of free Wi-Fi internet access in all our affiliates starting in 2010. Just imagine that, even now, only 53.65% of Italian hotels have some form (cable or wireless) of in-room Internet connection, so you can imagine the scope of this action taken by the consortium. All of our initiatives are based on our clients' point of view," continues Lidia Rescigno. "We often ask our selves what is really useful to our guests and what are the services that will make their stay as pleasant as possible. That is how we identified that free Wi-Fi is a fundamental added value to our hospitality offer. Today, we are happy to learn that an increasing number of surveys have shown that Internet access is the most important service requested by guests. Nowadays, both business and leisure travellers want to be able to check their email, surf the Internet and video chat with friends and family."
