Captura de Pantalla 2022-07-20 a las 11.25.23 a. m.

Hotel hours combine with many plans, but our winning combination is with a good terrace and views of the city (because everything tastes better from the heights). For all sorts of occasions, it’s always a good idea to go up to the top floor of a hotel to watch the sunset, disconnect and live a very unique experience. 

BYHOURS has made a selection of our TOP hotels with the best terraces and privileged views of the cities, so that you don’t have to do more than choose a hotel and make a reservation. Have a look and take your partner, friends or family to spend a few hours in a hotel.

The Divine Terrace of the Hotel Grand Cavour – Florence

This 4-star hotel located in central Florence is the perfect place to spend a few hours in the heart of the city. Situated a few minutes walk from all the wonders of the historic centre and just a few minutes from Santa Maria Novella station, it has a terrace with the best views: La Divina Terrazza.

La Divina Terrazza Bar is the perfect spot to enjoy an authentic relaxing break accompanied by the most creative cocktails and the best wine labels.

GHL Hotel Barranquilla Terrace

Perfect for all kinds of occasions, this 5-star hotel has one of the best city views in Barranquilla. The GHL Hotel Barranquilla is an original and avant-garde luxury hotel located in the northern part of the city, in the residential neighbourhood of Villa Santos, close to the main leisure and restaurant areas of Barranquilla. 

On the terrace, next to the impressive infinity pool with views of the Magdalena River mouth, this hotel offers a bar service offering all kinds of drinks and snacks. A few hours here can change your life!

Hotel Duquesa de Cardona – Barcelona

From the rooftop terrace of this palace built in 1850 you can enjoy a view of the entire coastline. This terrace is one of the best places to have a drink while watching the sunset over the city or to have dinner. To spend a few hours in this hotel watching the lights of the city turn on and the Mediterranean becoming a sparkling mirror is now our favourite thing to do. 

In addition, this terrace has a special bonus: live music. This summer, the Duquesa de Cardona is hosting live performances on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 7.30pm to 8.30pm, by artists such as Gigi McFarlane, and also on Saturdays and Sundays at vermouth time.

JW Marriott Hotel Bogota Terrace

With a privileged location to the most important restaurants in the north of the capital and in the heart of the financial centre of Bogota, you will find this 5-star hotel. The JW Marriott is a delightful place to spend a few hotel hours, not only for its many luxurious facilities, which can be accessed with a BYHOURS reservation, but also for its incomparable terrace. With the best scenery, the terrace bar can offer you the most special cocktails to enjoy a few hours of disconnection at this oasis.

In addition, with the hotel hours you will enjoy all the services included in the hotel, paying only for what you need. If you’re looking forward to discovering different plans, we recommend you to take a look at our blog for plans in your city. We hope to see you again in the next one! 



Insurance AXA innovates in the sector with BYHOURS


Security and hotel hours go hand in hand

Axa insurance and BYHOURS

AXA and BYHOURS have partnered to provide exclusive emergency medical and travel services to all its policyholders, offering them comfort in critical moments. 

With this new agreement AXA, the French multinational company, offers to its insureds travel assistance for cancellations, delays, flight changes, medical travel and emergency surgery, and provides hotel hours through BYHOURS.  In order to obtain additional benefits, the multinational insurer has achieved an innovative leadership and personalization of the service, gaining a competitive advantage in the sector. 

In this way, the insurance company AXA will offer unbeatable coverage guarantees, taking its response to its clients’ emergencies to another level. With this union, situations such as a canceled flight and at the expense of a new one, a delay or change of schedule, as well as a medical emergency for oneself or a family member and/or companion on the trip, will be covered with micro-stays provided by BYHOURS.

All of this is possible thanks to the global status of BYHOURS. With the company’s international hotel hours guarantees, the large international insurer can make this service a reality in more than 25 countries and in more than 4,000 hotels. 

BYHOURS’ guarantee lies in its formula for success: experience and innovation. The company’s business model, which is based on pay-per-use, has been on the market for 10 years and is revolutionizing the hospitality sector. This concept is fully in line with the value proposition of the insurance company AXA, which offers a personalized service tailored to the needs of each policyholder. 

This alliance is a step further for both international companies. While BYHOURS consolidates its leadership and product in multiple traveler use cases, AXA positions itself as the first insurer to offer an innovative solution 100% adapted to the customer. 

The global agreement will be in place from X, with its starting point from AXA’s headquarters in Mexico, where BYHOURS has an office with more than 12 employees for Latin America and the exit to the USA.
