wellness day

There comes a time of the year when we all deserve a break. A weekend, a day, an afternoon or a few hours just to relax. Is that why Wellness Day was invented on 13 June? A day when there is no excuse not to go ‘off’ for a while and have a great time in a spa. It could be a massage, thermal waters or pools with endless waterfalls and hydromassages.

From BYHOURS we have chosen some of our hotels with spa so that you can decide where to celebrate the ‘Wellness Day’, or the wellness week… Why not? 😉

With us you can choose the best moment for you and relax for a few hours. Do you want to spend 3 hours in a jacuzzi and hydromassage pools? You can! Do you prefer 6 hours where you can also enjoy a massage? You can! Have you thought about staying to sleep and getting up and going straight to the spa? You can!

With BYHOURS you have plenty of options to make the ‘Wellness Day’ your favourite moment, whenever you want.

Sabre teams up with BYHOURS to distribute hotel microstays and support the recovery of hospitality

SABRE & BYHOURS
Agreement makes Sabre the first global platform to offer hotels reservations by the hour, a new trend in the hospitality industry.

SOUTHLAKE, Texas and BARCELONA, Spain Sabre Corporation  (NASDAQ: SABR), the leading software and technology provider that powers the global travel industry, and BYHOURS, the leading international startup platform for hotel microstays, have signed a new agreement to provide Sabre’s agency community with relevant content that will allow them to sell rooms by the hour through the BYHOURS’ Sabre Red App.

This distribution agreement comes at a key moment for the global travel industry, as COVID-19 has generated an increased need for microstays whether for business, local leisure staycations or stopover travel.

Hotels for teleworking: a few hours with BYHOURS

teleworking

We live in difficult times, circumstances have changed our lives in many ways and work has certainly been affected. In recent months, a lot of people stay at home fot teleworking. It has been installed in many companies and has increased in those that had already implemented it. At BYHOURS we have not been oblivious to this and that is why we also offer rooms and meeting rooms by the hour in hotels, so that you can telework by doing team meetings, important calls or have maximum peace of mind during working hours.

So below we would like to offer you a series of hotel recommendations that can help you according to your needs when teleworking.

If what you need is a reserved space in which to hold a business meeting, one option we have is the DOVER room at the Gallery Hotel in Barcelona, in the Paseo de Gracia area. It is a room with capacity for 9 people that has an imperial table ideal for meetings. It also has all kinds of audiovisual material if you need it for your meeting, such as a projector, speakers, microphones, printer, laptops…

Maybe you are on a business trip and need a few hours to telework or hold a video conference. Don’t worry, the time availability is very flexible, to adapt to what you need. For example, at the Hotel Campanile Murcia, you can book the Romea Room, a room that is equipped with natural light, wifi and a projection screen, which you can reserve for 3 hours so that you can hold your videoconference or telework for a while.

Finally, if what you need is a space to carry out a full day’s work, we also offer you that possibility. A very good option that we propose is the SUITE 714 in the Only You Atocha Hotel, in Madrid, a space located on the last floor of the hotel with access to a terrace where you will be able to relax and enjoy magnificent views of the city of Madrid. The best thing is that the hotel is close to the station, so you can make the most of your time until your train leaves.

As you can see, at BYHOURS we have everything you need to make your new working days fit you and most importantly: your comfort. Thanks to our pay-per-use service in both rooms and meeting rooms, you can enjoy the best hotels paying only for the time you need.

Spend a few hours in the top 5 cities in France

francia

When we talk about France and its cities, without a doubt the first city that comes to mind is Paris. But France is a country with much more to see than just the capital.
That’s why at BYHOURS we want to recommend you what for us are the best 5 cities in the country to visit and where you can also enjoy a few hours in the best hotels in the town.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is famous for being considered the capital of wine, so if you like wine it is a city you have to visit. We propose you to start with a visit to the Cité du Vin, the biggest international wine museum, a unique cultural space in the world that makes wine known through the world and history.
Then, to complete your visit, you can visit some of the best vineyards in France and enjoy a wine tasting.

Paris

As we mentioned before, it is impossible not to think about Paris if you go to France, it is certainly a city to visit. If we have to highlight any place to visit in Paris, it has to be the Eiffel Tower, the most emblematic monument of the city and one of the most visited wonders of the world, for a reason.
But Paris is very big and there is much more to see than the Eiffel Tower, so if you need a break to get your strength back before continuing your visit, you can rest for a few hours in one of our hotels, such as the Hôtel Regence Etoile, located a few minutes from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysées.

Lille

When we think of cities in France, Lille probably doesn’t come to mind, but it is a city full of history and corners to discover.
We propose you to stroll around Vieux-Lille, the old town, a spectacular district for its characteristic architecture, with its red brick houses and cobbled streets, where you will also find the best restaurants in the city and charming shops.

Strasbourg

Strasbourg is famous for its Christmas market, the largest in France and Europe, but unfortunately it will not be held this year. However, there is more to do in Strasbourg, such as visiting the Petite France, a picturesque neighbourhood with beautiful wooden houses from the 16th and 17th centuries, where you will also find restaurants, shops and green areas. The place is not very big and you can walk or cycle through it, but if you want a different perspective you can also go by boat through the canals.

Nice

Located on the Mediterranean coast, it is considered the most important city on the Costa Azul. One of the essential places to see in Nice is the Promenade des Anglais, a 7 km long promenade that you can cycle along while enjoying the view of the sea and its beaches and emblematic and famous hotels such as the Hotel Negresco.
And if after the bike ride you need some time to rest, you can spend a few hours at the Aston La Scala Hotel Nice, a top hotel located only 5 minutes from the beach.

And these would be our recommendations to visit in France, very varied places and each one with its particular charm. And don’t forget that if you need to rest for a few hours, you can do it in any of our hotels.
