Health and Safety Guidelines
| GUESTS & BUSINESS PARTNERS
We hope that you will soon stay at one of our properties, and when you do so, we want you to feel as safe as you do at home, offering you an environment adapted to the current needs and in line with our identity.
Thus, with the safety of our guests, staff and business partners in mind, we have implemented a Health and Safety Plan based on governmental guidelines:
Cleaning and Disinfection
All protocols applied in the cleaning and disinfection of all areas have been developed following the recommendations of the French health authorities. Additionally, we use approved virucide cleaning products that are respectful with the wellbeing of our guests and planet.
Development and Monitorization
We have developed a specific protocol in each operational area of the hotel which aims to minimize or eliminate all possible risks, including regular checks to verify the correct implementation of preventive measures.
Food & Beverage
We have implemented new processes and new service concepts that do not compromise the quality of our guests’ experience. All our products are supplied by certified suppliers and distributors.
Interpersonal distancing (social distancing)
The protection of our guests, employees and business partners includes several measures such as redistribution of spaces, control of room capacities and service schedules that guarantee social distancing.
We work with different applications to minimize the risk through physical contact and to reduce the waiting time of some processes.
Development of new information channels
We consider that the access to information is essential in order to inspire confidence. For this reason, we make sure that even before arriving at our properties, our guests are aware of the measures that are in place and any other information that may affect them.
All teams working at our hotels receive continuous training on every new protocol, with constant updates in response to emerging news, changing scenarios and the release of new information to ensure the well-being of our guests.
Additionally, our hotel applies the comprehensive system of measures established by the French government to face the Covid-19.
This set of guidelines is applied through concrete measures in each area of our hotels:
1. Guest access and check in
The entrance and the lobby of the hotel receive special focus in the application of protocols with the aim of preserving the hotel’s facilities as much as possible and ensuring that they remain virus-free. For this reason, this space will be subject to an exhaustive control at the entrances, as well as the access and exit flows.
Control of capacity and interpersonal distance
Definition of a maximum number of people allowed to occupy an area depending on its capacity.
Physical signage to indicate social distancing.
Presence of disinfection stations
Hydrogel solution is available at reception for the use of guests. Disinfection of room keys, PDQ machine and all other tools and utensils is conducted after contact and use between clients.
Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)
Use of masks by the reception team.
2. Treatment of common areas
We have focused on a cleaning plan of thorough disinfection and have implemented schedules that intensify the cleaning frequency of common areas. We have established service dynamics that allow the required social distance. We conduct all cleaning processes with virucides authorized by the Ministry of Health.
Furthermore, before reopening, all our hotels have undergone a comprehensive disinfection of all their spaces and facilities.
Exhaustive disinfection of the facilities and adequate ventilation
High frequency in the disinfection and cleaning of common areas, surfaces and furniture, paying more attention to the areas with more guests such as elevators, corridors and common bathrooms. More cleaning frequency of air filters and an increase in the level of ventilation of air conditioning systems to renew the air more regularly.
Control of capacity and adequacy of space
Redistribution and elimination of some furniture to facilitate the cleaning of the space and to ensure that safety distances are preserved. Control to avoid crowds.

It includes a rigorous cleaning of all those elements with a high level of contact such as lamps and switches or the control of air conditioning.
