Room Mate Hotels, the international hotel chain founded by Kike Sarasola, is making the Room Mate Giulia hotel in Milan available free of charge for health workers involved in the Covid-19 emergency.
Room Mate Giulia opened in 2016, with 85 rooms located in Via Silvio Pellico in central Milan, close to Piazza del Duomo and the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery. Managed by Room Mate Hotels, it is owned by the Primo RE real estate fund managed by Prelios SGR, a property fund manager in the Prelios Group.
Room Mate Hotels has offered all its hotels in Italy, Spain, France and the USA available to local authorities free of charge. To date, 13 hotels with a total of more than 800 rooms are accommodating health workers and the elderly in cities including Florence, Madrid, Barcelona, San Sebastián, Paris and New York.
"We take great pride in the decision of Room Mate Hotels to make the Giulia, a hotel in central Milan, available,” said Alessandro Busci, Director Business Development, Fund Raising and Fund Management of Prelios SGR. "In Milan and the region of Lombardy, doctors, nurses and all health workers are working heroically to cope with the Covid-19 emergency. Every opportunity to provide help and facilitate their work and their daily lives is enormously useful. The Prelios Group has made a financial contribution to the fight against the Coronavirus and this is another reason why we appreciate the generosity of Room Mate Hotels in offering its hotels in the main cities of the many countries in which it operates."
