NEWLY REFURBISHED SPACES
WE REFURBISHED OUR HOTELS IN BARCELONA, MALAGA, MADRID, AND VALENCIA
At ILUNION Hotels, over the last few months we have been refurbishing three of our hotels including Hotel ILUNION Barcelona, Hotel ILUNION Málaga, and Hotel ILUNION Alcalá Norte in Madrid.
The refurbishment at Hotel ILUNION Barcelona has led to improvements in the reception area, common areas, event rooms, restaurant, toilets, and gym. This hotel, found in the city's edgiest neighbourhood and just about 10 minutes away from the beach, has 66 staff members, of which 48 are people with disabilities.
With respect to the Hotel ILUNION Málaga, where currently 71 people work and 13 have some type of disability, the works were aimed at refurbishing the rooms as well as the corridors leading to them. In addition to its excellent location near the beach and the AVE high-speed train station, this hotel has a spa and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
The latest refurbishment at Hotel ILUNION Alcalá Norte in Madrid were carried out in the common areas, reception, private event room, and its restaurant and cafeteria. This hotel boasts an exceptional location close to the Wanda Metropolitano stadium and offers a spacious open terrace. Currently, 54 individuals work at Hotel ILUNION Alcalá Norte, including 6 people with disabilities.
Additionally, we refurbished all the common areas at Hotel ILUNION Valencia 4. In the coming months, we will also be refurbishing the event rooms at this hotel.
