6 Characteristics Of A Boutique Hotel According to Vassallo Group

Although the phrase boutique hotel may be slightly vague at times, because of the variety of styles and levels of affordability they’re available in, most of them share a number of common characteristics. Here are but a few:

1. Size

The main factor that distinguishes boutique hotels from chain, sometimes monolithic, hotels is in their size. Boutique hotels are typically small, consisting of typically ten to a hundred rooms, which creates a sense of cosiness and intimacy. Which leads us to the next feature.

2. Personalised service

Boutique hotels’ smaller size enables their staff to dedicate more time and effort on each guest, thus creating a pleasant and personalised experience which is beyond what one could expect from a regular hotel.

3. Aesthetics and attention to detail

Whether charmingly historic, exclusively modern or an eclectic mix of both, such hotels are led by design and aesthetics, wherein the décor plays a major role in adding the right amount of ambience and uniqueness. This boutique characteristic typically owes itself to designer finishes, high-quality materials, bespoke toiletries and furnishing and at times, quirky touches.

4. Clientele

Boutique hotels seem to attract a niche of customers looking for a unique accommodation that matches their personality as well as meets their individual needs. These kinds of hotels typically have an individual attitude, just like their targeted clientele – generally the fashionable or artistic sort.

5. Location

Although there are no hard and fast rules, many boutique hotels pride themselves on being located in the most hip, urban, lively areas, and the George is no exception. Located in the heart of Paceville, The George Urban Boutique Hotel is a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of the popular nightlife area, brimming with clubs, bars and restaurants.

6. Gastronomy

Like everything else boutique, boutique hotels’ restaurants tend to be trendy. With authentic, high quality cuisine paired with a hip, yet comfortable, atmosphere, boutique restaurants make for popular dining spots with guests. At the George Urban Boutique Hotel Malta, Miro restaurant brings experiential dining to the table by offering a unique culinary experience to the guest through a menu designed with the intention of combining innovation, texture and flavour.

If you are looking for a boutique hotel in Malta, look no further than the George Urban Boutique Hotel. It’s a hard life but somebody’s got to do it!
