Everything can be said about B&B Hotels Italia except that it suffers from immobility. The hotel chain of Breton origins, in the orbit of a large financial group, Goldman & Sachs merchant bank, is confirmed as one of the top 100 Italian companies that have achieved the highest ESG (Environmental, social, and corporate governance) ratings, which has been confirmed recently in the second edition of the Sustainability Awards.

B&B Hotels Group is growing at an impressive average: present in 9 countries with a total of 650 structures, by the summer of 2024, it will give birth to the second reality of the group in Europe and the largest in Italy, by size, the B&B Hotel Venezia. 2022 will end with 60 hotels, counting also the two openings that will be presented between now and the end of the year.

All this on the island of Tronchetto, also known as Isola Nova, the strategic connection point with the center of Venice that will be designed following precise guidelines to comply with the specifications of the LEED certification, as a sustainable building, in line with the group's philosophy.

The project is spread over two separate blocks made with a wooden structure instead of reinforced concrete and exposed brick on the façade and will count on a staff of about 150 people who would like to have a strong majority "of the territory".

In the basement there is a car park with 226 spaces equipped with 10 charging stations for electric cars. On the ground floor, characterized by large windows designed to facilitate the entry of natural light into the rooms, will host the reception, totally "self" with in-person assistants, the locker area for luggage storage, a meeting room with a maximum capacity of 150 people equipped with every technological support, including superfast connection with fiber up to 300Mb/s.

On the same level there will be a restaurant and a bistro with about 500 seats between inside and outside, which will offer guests a culinary experience in the name of tradition, which will certainly be entrusted to an external manager. and quality. On the ground floor it will be possible to find two groups of rooms, one of which is accessible and with services for people with limited mobility and others with a private green area. The first to fourth floors will be dedicated to rooms of various sizes and categories, from single to multiple.



The third floor will feature an elegant rooftop bar and restaurant with 76 seats indoors and 70 on the adjacent outdoor terrace, also open to outsiders for the organization of private events, dinners and aperitifs.

406 rooms in standard double, superior double and multiple types in all.

The Superior category rooms will guarantee a differentiated hospitality offer with a richer welcome kit, double pillow, water and a more linen service refined.
