Boutique Hotel: find out how to pamper yourself during a stay in Siena
The definition of Boutique Hotel is of American origin and was coined to indicate charming hotel structures, not particularly large, which stand out for offering intimate, original and luxurious areas. Unlike larger hotels, these structures almost always represent romantic oases, ideal destinations for couples, and as such they offer exclusive and refined services.
The defining elements of a boutique hotel
To deserve the title of boutique hotel, an accommodation must stand out for prestigious areas and must be able to offer a series of unconventional facilities.</ strong> Here are the main features that distinguish a design hotel.
As already mentioned, these tourist structures are generally small in size and rarely offer the availability of a large number of rooms.These luxury hotels usually consist of between 10 and 50 rooms. A larger number of accommodations would invalidate the structure’s exclusive concept.
Style and design play a predominant role in a boutique hotel. Very often these structures are born from modernizations and renovations of noble palaces, historical buildings, but also of old mills and age-old architectures. In this case it is essential to be able to create a wise mix between new and old, to be able to introduce modern utilities in respect of the original architectural layout.
Not infrequently, in a boutique hotel each room is different than the others and is characterized by a different theme and facilities. For example, in a structure of this type a room can have a whirlpool tub and a four-poster bed, while another room can offer polychromatic showers and frescoed walls.
