With an urban personality that is reflected in its versatile common areas, the Ibis budget hotel in Providencia opens its doors to guests looking for the best location at an affordable price.
The new infrastructure of the Accor chain, a member of the Ibis brand, will receive those looking for autonomy, simplicity and comfort in the center of the Montt district, an emerging hub of gastronomic, heritage and cultural development that will be enriched with the opening of this new hotel.
A total of 151 single, rooms conditioned for two to three people, with intuitive and functional design, free Wi-Fi, Cable TV, low rates and additional services, such as fast check out, 24-hour market and a breakfast buffet, form part of what the New Ibis Budget Providencia (3284 built square meters) has to offer. It will be located steps from the Manuel Montt metro and close to many of the capital’s main tourist attractions, as well as bars and restaurants.
“We were interested in bringing an economic, comfortable and functional option to Santiago, designed for travelers looking for smart prices in a privileged sector of the capital to boost Accor’s portfolio, consolidating ourselves as the largest hotel chain in the country,” Franck Pruvost explained, Accor COO for Hispanic countries.
This new Accor project, designed for millennials, is part of the more than 600 hotels and 61,000 rooms of the Ibis brand, present in 20 countries, a figure that continues to expand internationally. In Chile, it will be the 4th operational Ibis Budget Hotel, after those constructed in the cities of Iquique, Calama and Copiapó. Two others form part of the portfolio as future projects.
The hotel represents an investment of CLP$438M, with Ingevec S.A, the Albala family, Amszynowski family and Peruvian Kulisic family as its main investors.
The Montt district, located between the three main avenues of Manuel Montt, Nueva Providencia and Pocuro, is a gastronomic hub composed of diverse and entertaining culinary delights in the form of bars and restaurants. In addition, it has heritage landmarks and attractive cultural centers, such as the Nescafé de las Artes Theater.
Its cobbled streets and excellent location charm those who seek an entertaining urban spot that offers hustle, but also a quiet and safe environment.
The new Providencia Ibis Budget wanted to preserve this identity in a mural of about 40 square meters, which depicts places that are typical of Santiago, including tourist attractions such as the Costanera, the Teleferico, the Sculpture Park, the Bellavista district and others. The mural presents Chile’s capital as a place where urban sports and art converge, such as skateboarding, cycling and graffiti.
The artwork was made by the “ALAPINTA” collective artist, Gabriel Veloso, who has taken his plastic interventions to various places around the world, such as Canada, Mexico, Germany and Tierra del Fuego, among many others.
The Ibis Budget mural in Providencia also had the collaboration of students benefitting from the Forge Foundation, an entity that works to integrate young talents into the labor market. Accor forms part of this foundation’s network as one of the companies that offers jobs to its members.
