15 January 2019 – Alimarket
The chain HG Hoteles has opened the 4-star HG City Suites Barcelona aparthotel containing 58 accommodation units on Avenida Vía Augusta 89, in the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district of Barcelona. The establishment is the result of the purchase and complete renovation of a building that used to house the Hotel NH Belagua (3* and 72 rooms), which was active until March 2017. The renovation project has resulted in both an increase in the category of the property from 3* to 4*, as well as a reduction in the number of rooms in order to offer units that are apartment-suites and studios.
The new HG City Suites Barcelona is located just a few minutes walk from Avenida Diagonal and Paseo de Gracia. It is surrounded by services, is next to some of the most prestigious medical centre in Barcelona, and is very close to the Sant Gervasio, Plaza Molina and Fontana metro stops”, explained the company. With his hotel, HG, which has just celebrated its 50th anniversary, is making its debut in the urban hotel segment and is opening a new path of expansion.
Cristian Park will open in 2020
Nevertheless, the company’s next new property will be in the vacation sector and is scheduled for opening at the end of 2020. As Alimarket Hoteles reported, it will consist of the opening of a 4* new build aparthotel, to be operated by the owner, in the south of Tenerife, where HG Hoteles already has several apartment blocks: ‘HG Cristian Sur’ (3* and 90 rooms) and ‘HG Tenerife’ (3* and 189 rooms), in Los Cristianos. Indeed, it will open the future HG Cristian Park in that same town, with 202 accommodation units.
HG’s sun and beach offer is completed with the HG Lomo Blanco apartments (3* and 131 rooms) in Lanzarote, as well as some aparthotels in Menorca, namely: the ‘HG Jardín de Menorca’ (4*-144) and the ‘HG Cala Llonga’ (3*-30). The rest of its portfolio is made up of ski and mountain properties, including: the Huesca hotels ‘HG Alto Aragón’ (4*-134) and ‘HG Cerler’ (3*-101), the Girona-based ‘HG La Molina’ (4*-65), the Navarran ‘HG Isaba’ (3*-49) and the Granada-based ‘HG Maribel’ (4*-30).
