Hotel Catalonia Donosti
San Sebastian, Spain
An ancient convent in San Sebastian dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries has been transformed into the first hotel owned by the Catalonia brand in the Basque Country, and Vicaima was the brand chosen to provide its interior doors. Poised on the hill of San Bartolomeu and boasting panoramic views of La Concha beach, the Catalonia Donosti hotel is an elegant 4-star property that has 128 rooms of 7 different types.
Different Portaro® units have been integrated into the building - a set comprising door, frame and accessories in a single piece. At the entrance to the rooms the Portaro® EI30 AC44db was fitted. This option offers fire resistance up to 30 minutes and acoustic isolation up to 44 decibels, which are essential attributes to guarantee the security and comfort of the guests. In their interiors, the Block Sliding was installed, contributing to greater functionality and use of space. For the rest of the common areas, several units of the Portaro® EI60 fire rated solution were used.
The hotel entrance defines the essence of the entire project reflecting a modern décor contrasting with the classic style evidenced in the façade and towers of the building, which was renovated by means of a rigorous rehabilitation process. Bearing in mind the search for a balance between tradition and modernity, the choice went to a RAL 9017 Lacquer - a plain colour, ideal for elegant and sophisticated settings, blending in with classic architecture and avant-garde design.
