Vueling creates hotel for love of flying

Décor of new Barcelona hotel will evoke experience of flying

Hotels seem to be popping up with every theme imaginable. Now the Spanish airline Vueling – which is currently in the process of boosting its Nordic presence – has teamed up with the hotel chain Hoteles Catalonia to open a hotel in central Barcelona in 2013. The theme, of course, is the experience of flight, with the décor making guests feel like they have just boarded, or are about to board, a Vueling plane.
The reception area will recreate an airport check-in counter, the bar-restaurant will be in what looks like an aircraft cabin and the breakfast area will be like the inside of an airport terminal, complete with overhead information screens. Vueling’s yellow and grey brand colours will be visible throughout the hotel.
