The Colombian city of Cali gets its first five-star hotel, the Hotel Spiwak, with 226 suits and five armored rooms.
“The armored rooms will meet the requirements of multinational companies that demand higher safety standards for their executives,” says the manager of the hotel, Bernardo Velasquez.
The average room size is 50 square meters, with the master suits offering 83 square meters space. Customers can opt for a room with a bath, a shower or a jacuzzi and request whether they want the mattress hard, soft or semi-hard. Each room has purified water, a microwave, a 36-42 inch TV and an iron with an ironing board.
There will be one floor exclusively for women.
The president of the hotel, Angel Spiwak, told El Tiempo that the concept of a hotel as simply a place with a clean bed and a decent bathroom has been left behind.
“In Colombia there is no hotel like this one,” Velasquez said. He added that the project will generate 218 direct and 1,500 indirect jobs.
The Hotel Spiwak is located in a new shopping center north of Cali and stretches over 10 floors. It will open on October 15.
