base2stay believes that achieving transparent pricing is very simple – not only is VAT included in the price, but the brand avoids adding extras at every touch-point. The result – base2stay guests can work out in advance the precise cost of their stay.
The concept for base2stay is simple - by editing out many of the 'discretionary' and rarely used traditional hotel facilities such as a restaurant, gym and bar - base2stay is able to keep its room rates low, whilst still offering high-spec rooms and suites. Instead of these traditional facilities, the hotel is located in a busy stylish neighbourhood buzzing with a choice of bars, restaurants, gyms and boutiques for guests to visit, many offering exclusive discounts for base2stay guests.
In addition, all base2stay rooms and suites are equipped with mini-kitchens with a microwave, sink, kettle and fridge, encouraging guests to bring in food from local grocery stores and delivery restaurants, without any hotel mark-up. Each room also includes the 'base directory', offering an interactive on-screen local guide to services and facilities, allowing guests to avoid the usual expensive and limited room-service options.
Hotels are ultimately about rooms, so base2stay concentrates on what guests really want from a comfortable hotel room - air-conditioning, contemporary interior-design, high quality IT including HDTVs with free internet access, high speed VPN broadband, ample power points (with European 220v), convenient workspace, great bathrooms, daily maid service, and most importantly, a comfortable night's sleep. Of course, we have a 24/7 Reception and Concierge service.
The base2stay ethos also embraces three aspects of sustainability; environmental, economic and social. Not only does base2stay embrace the environmental agenda, but by putting what guests want at the core of the concept and encouraging them to spread their spend amongst base2stay's neighbours and partners, economic and social sustainability is promoted.
