Relaxing week with BYHOURS: what really matters

Fashion Trend Forecasting _ MADE Trends

We live in a society that promotes consumerism and shocks us every day with between 3,000 and 5,000 advertising messages. Material goods are placed above what really matters. A hug, a moment of laughter that sticks in the memory, a new experience, a chat in good company? What do you value the most important thing?

We are approaching periods of high consumption: Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, sales… Are you getting saturated? It’s normal, in this case the impacts of materialistic consumption that you will receive will be twice as high as usual. That’s why at BYHOURS we want you to always have a relaxing week and discover what is worth spending your time on.

Relaxing week? What is it?

Although it is a term that we have invented 100% in BYHOURS, don’t you think it defines very well what we are talking about? The relaxing week has just one objective: for you to discover what really matters. Away from the most material things, we want you to live a new experience of relaxation, away from the crowded streets, the endless queues in the shops and the stress of finding that bargain you’ve been promised for days or even weeks.

Close your eyes and think of a perfect plan with your favourite person. Here are a few hints:

  • A king-size bed to sleep soundly.
  • A buffet breakfast to recharge your batteries.
  • A few hours in the spa where only you matter.
  • A cocktail overlooking the city watching the sunset.
  • A relaxing massage to forget the daily stress.
  • A luxurious lunch followed by a restorative nap.

Are you planning to do any of these things? Undoubtedly, they will be moments that will make you live an experience far away from the crowded shopping and where you can enjoy a hotel for a few hours. You don’t need to spend a lot of money, choosing your pack of 3, 6 or 12h you will pay only for the time you want to disconnect, it’s all advantages!

Which hotels can I visit?

We can tell you that we have more than 4,000 hotels all over the world, but of course, you might not be able to see them all. So we leave you with a small international selection. And we recommend you to visit our website and choose the one you like the most in your city. We provide the hotel, the company and discovering what really matters is up to you 😉

Parents, recover those lost hours of rest


There is no secret that it is becoming increasingly difficult to enjoy undisturbed hours of rest. According to the World Health Organisation, over 40% of the population sleeps badly. And it is also not a mystery if we say that this affects both physically and psychologically our day-to-day life with disorders such as stress or anxiety.

Fathers, mothers, at BYHOURS we understand you and it is totally normal that you have felt identified with this 40% of people who do not sleep well. It has been estimated that during the first year of life of a newborn baby, their parents lose between 400 and 700 hours of sleep. These restless nights are a true merit and make you real heroes to admire

Being parents is one of the most beautiful things in the world, but in the first few months, undisturbed sleep becomes an utopia and finding quiet times and places to rest is a real challenge. With this panorama, the BYHOURS microstays become the perfect solution to recover the hours of rest with the quality of the best hotels in the city. Who has not ever thought of taking the hotel bed in the suitcase after a good night’s sleep? With BYHOURS microstays you will have access to all the services of the hotel and by this way complete your moment of relaxation, for example in the spa. All you will have to do is choose between the 3, 6 or 12h pack in more than 4,000 top hotels on the website and let yourself go. We all deserve a few hours of rest and disconnection, and if you have been parents this year, you know very well what we are talking about, don’t you?


This is why in BYHOURS we are raffling a microstay per month for a whole year, so parents can recover the lost hours of rest, without interruptions and in the best beds. The only requirement to participate is to have had a child during 2021. To prove it, the winner must present the birth certificate of his or her child.

With your participation you can win up to 12 hours of hotel per month and it is you who will choose the hotel where you will spend those hours. Besides, remember that the booking of a microstay in BYHOURS is always for two people. Do you already know who will be your companion to rest?

Tempting, isn’t it?

Madrid full of different plans for you


Madrid is one of those cities where you will never run out of plans and in BYHOURS we like to be aware of the latest trendy places or events that the city offers us. With the arrival of November and the public holidays it offers us, our list of plans for a different day in the city is going to be very useful for you. Don’t miss it!

Exhibition of the II Photography Competition “Filomena a mi pesar”

One of the most unexpected events of 2021 was on 8 January when Filomena arrived in the city of Madrid and covered it with snow. A situation that had not occurred for years changed the routine of the people of Madrid for a few days, who took advantage of every minute of the day to enjoy the new landscape of their city. To commemorate this unique moment, a photographic competition was held, which is now on display until 9 January 2022 at the Madrid History Museum. We encourage you to take a look at it!

Library of the Escuela Pías

Between Lavapiés and Embajadores, in the heart of Madrid, hides an incredible library with more than 200 years of history. It was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1996 and since then the building has been restored as a library in the style of the Hogwarts School of Magic. So from BYHOURS, we suggest you to enter and get lost in its endless corridors full of books, feeling like a real student of magic.

Rooftop of ‘El Círculo de las Artes’ 

We know that another of the things that characterize the city of Madrid is its good gastronomy, so we could not miss a recommendation of one of our favourite restaurants. Specialising in Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine, with the occasional nod to exotic dishes, the rooftop of “El Círculo de las Artes”, located on one of the rooftops with the best views of the capital, will delight you with the best views. We warn you: you can’t miss their croquettes or their homemade laing.

To end the day, the best thing to do is to enjoy a few hours of relaxation and disconnection without having to leave the city. Here are some charming hotels that offer their guests unique and exclusive terraces to enjoy watching the sun go down in a different way:

BYou: break the routine with your partner

Hotel Punto MX

September is starting, a new month full of challenges where many return to routine. Whether it is because of the change of weather that we are noticing or because of the excessive work that we may have, we are more immersed in the day to day, losing more leisure time and consequently more quality time with our partner. We must be alert in these cases, do different things that help us to break the routine and keep the flame alive as in the months of rest.

That’s why BYHOURS wanted to compile some ideas that could help you to break the routine with your partner and even surprise them when they least expect it. Write them down, they can be useful at any time!

  • Microstay in the best hotel in town. Spend a night out in a good hotel, without rushing and resting in a king size room with all the comforts. It’s as easy as looking for the hotel you like the most on the BYHOURS app or website and voilà, what a good wake-up call you’ll get!
  • Romantic candlelit dinner at home. A simple and quick way to prepare a special dinner that will break the daily routine. Lots of candles and a special dish to surprise. Could it become your favourite moment of the day?

  • Massage and spa session of 3h. Did you think it was impossible to get this combination at the best price? With BYHOURS you can access the hotels that have these services and enjoy them, apart from the room. There are very stressful days that deserve this little pleasure.
  • Bike ride with picnic. One way to change the routine is doing sport. Encourage your partner to go out and to finish off, have a little picnic in the park before you return. What a fun way to shorten the week!
  • A lunch with a view. Why not meet up at lunchtime and change your routine at midday? If you choose a place with a view and the weather is good, it will be a very nice and different moment.

It’s time not to fall into a routine and have a little something special for your special someone. Don’t you think it’s a great plan to discover new experiences with that person? Wherever it is, it will always be unique.

If you want to know more ideas and hotels for you and your partner, don’t miss all the posts in the ‘Romantic moments’ section of our blog, there are plenty of ideas for you!

LifestyleRomantic Moments

Enjoy a BYHOURS with your partner: you deserve it!


Time as a couple should always be quality time, moments to connect with that special person and have fun together. It would be idyllic if this were always the case, because day-to-day life, stress, work, children (if you have them) and the different social and work commitments that we all have, mean that we don’t have as many moments to spend with our partner as we would like.

In summer periods we can take advantage and have more time for ourselves, enjoying again the courtship or marriage that unites us. The problem comes when we return to the routine that absorbs us most of the day and reduces a lot the plans that we would love to do alone with our partner.

And how to break the routine with your partner?

At BYHOURS we are aware that whether you have children or not, you will love this idea. A solution that you can do to surprise your partner, or that you can plan and choose together. Book a micro-stay in your own city for 3, 6 or 12 hours and enjoy quality time without anyone bothering you.

Endless chats, swimming in the pool, relaxing in the spa, romantic dinner in the restaurant, sleeping in a king-size bed… There are so many things you can enjoy together!

You can surprise your partner with an afternoon of 3 hours in a great hotel after work and take a break. You also have the option of making a mini weekend getaway to a nearby town and book your room for 12 hours. It will be a relaxing night and much more economical, making the most of the hours of tourism and pampering for the two of you.

The best advice we can give you from BYHOURS is not to neglect love, trying to make plans as a couple whenever you can and enjoying together. There is no need to make big trips or spend large amounts of money. With a micro-stay you will have everything you need to be relaxed, calm and very comfortable, up to 70% cheaper. Who said that moments as a couple were difficult to find?

Is it hot? Great, choose a hotel with a pool and cool off in your micro-stay. It’s important to fight the hottest hours of your trip by stopping and not taking incense risks.

It’s getting late? No problem, even if the night is falling, you can choose 12h of hotel halfway and rest. Because there is nothing more important than being able to be one hundred percent attentive to the road. So sleep and resume your route without worries.

You decided to go by plane and the flight has been delayed? With the current situation and so many last minute changes, the possibility of being stranded at the airport for a few hours is real.
