City breaks are becoming a comfortable way to travel and disconnecting from routine, as they offer affordable journeys and essential experiences.
Traditional needs have changed. The new tourist looks after shorter trips but much more intense: only 4 days on average to fully enjoy, pampering oneself with whims that wouldn’t be planned in longer vacations.
Living like locals, tasting their cuisine, going to their cinemas, drinking in their pubs, meeting people and their history, their jobs… A quick but comprehensive experience.
Urban hotels offer unique experiences, thematic accommodation, landmark hotels downtown with special services: travelers looking for a city break want a special hotel being part of the whole experience.
In Spain, this traveling model is getting stronger in main cities with an increasing accommodation demand, ready to satisfy authentic travels to the very heart of our cities.
