Portago Urban Hotel by ILMIODESIGN

View all 21 Photos

Designers Michele Corbani and Andrea Spada of ILMIODESIGN gave this urban hotel a mix of English traits and an informal and colorful style despite its location, Granada, Spain. Inspired by the figure of a typical English gentleman, the ceiling upon entry is filled with traditional English hats, its luggage room is decorated with stacks of vintage suitcases. Designer Spada says “The bowler is not a simple hat anymore; it becomes an element that, when repeated thousands of times in an unpredictable way and at different heights, creates a moving and wrapping surface.” The first floor common area includes the reception desk, coffee car and breakfast room; the three upper levels have 25 bedrooms and a rooftop platform panoramic terrace. Each room has white walls that contrast the dramatically colored interfaceFLOR carpets, as well a series of messages such as “relax yourself” on the headboard. All of these elements put together create an inviting vibe for the guests to enjoy their stay.
