It was to have been the Casa del Fascist, in the dark years of the dictatorship, then never completed due to the war: it was reconverted, in the 1950s, as the headquarters of the Civil Engineering Department, before experiencing a long period of inactivity and abandonment. Now it is reborn, brand new, as a hotel of the B&B Hotels chain, an international brand present with more than 550 hotels in Europe, 49 in Italy, 18 in Lombardy.
The new B&B Hotel Brescia was inaugurated on Thursday morning in Piazzale Cremona: the structure, as mentioned, is the result of the recovery of the historic (abandoned) building known as the “ex civil engineering”. It is the result of a long integrated construction project, inspired by the concept of “urban mining”, that is to treasure the environmental and technological performance of buildings and materials, avoiding waste and reusing existing resources with a view to environmental sustainability.
The details of the first B&B Hotel Brescia
In particular, the B&B Hotel Brescia recovers part of a precious architectural heritage. Today transformed into “a welcoming hotel – they let B&B know with modern design, style and technologies, which together with natural materials make the image young and fresh”. And again: “A clean and contemporary interior environment where colors and shapes combine in a refined way and draw inspiration from the city and its history”. The new hotel is equipped with 85 rooms (single, twin, double, triple standard and superior), each equipped with comforts and services including self-regulating air conditioning, minibar and electronic safe.
In the world of 2.0, but which is now traveling towards 4.0, various “smart” services are guaranteed: each guest has an unlimited and free Wi-Fi connection at 200 megabits per second, and a 43-inch smart TV with Chromecast integrated, free Sky channels, multimedia content, dedicated sections for nearby restaurants and information on the area.
The ideal solution for tourism and work
The B&B Hotel in Brescia in Piazzale Cremona is a 10-minute walk from the railway station and the metro station, a few steps from the historic center of the city: “The ideal solution – they still say from B&B – to visit and enjoy the offer Brescia, but also to visit the neighboring areas such as Valcamonica, the Adamello peaks, Lake Garda or Sebino, and the nearby Bergamo and Verona.
