The Generator hybrid hostel-hotel brand always offers cool accommodations for an even cooler price but on March 18th you'll be able to nab a bed at the Generator Barcelona for just ONE EURO. No need to read that again. It really says ONE EURO.
The hotel is offering a 24-hour flash sale from March 18th at 1pm (local Barcelona time) to 1pm on March 19th. Here are the details:
· Guests can book as many beds for as many nights as they like.
· The sale is only for the dorm beds, not the private hotel rooms.
· It's first come, first served so you have to book fast.
· The deal is good for stays from March 18, 2014-March 17, 2015, a whole year!
· You will also be automatically entered in a prize draw to win a free upgrade to the Penthouse Suite. This room has its own lounge, kitchenette, and a huge terrace. Normally, it's €250 a night, but if you win, it will only cost you ONE EURO.
· Some more terms and conditions are listed after the jump.
· Sign up here to get early bird access.
Set in the Gràcia district, just a short walk from the epic Sagrada Familia by Gaudi, the Generator Barcelona features some incredibly cool spaces, including the lobby/social area which features more than 300 lanterns inspired by the city's annual Festa Major de Gràcia.
Room accommodations range from twin, triple, quad and dorm hostel rooms to private hotel rooms and the aforementioned penthouse suite. Hostel rooms typically start at 13 euros a night while hotel rooms go for 51 euros a night.
UPDATE: We were approached by Jetsetter with the request to affirm that 98% of imagery on Jetsetter was provided by vendors (which we assume to mean that, in contrast to what the WSJ reported, they weren't commissioned specifically for the site) and that Jetsetter is "close to breakeven". Close to breakeven is technically still not profitable, but we're happy to provide this additional detail straight from the horse's mouth.
We love us some flash sales. Who doesn’t want to snag that out-of-reach hotel for a reasonable price? Add super-slick photography and it’s easy to see why we’ve loved Jetsetter around these parts. Starting as an invite-only sample site, it soon branched out, adding a UK-website, “room tonight” functionality to their app, and even non-sale hotel rooms.
Now, word comes that Gilt Groupe, the internet-based fashion company behind the site, has put Jetsetter up for sale. But it doesn’t look like there are many takers. The Wall Street Journal reports that Gilt was initially seeking around $100 million, but that asking price has dropped to $50 million following a lack of interested buyers.
In case you've been living under an internet-less rock recently, the crazy-popular luxury hotel flash sale site Jetsetter.com has officially opened up for business overseas, in the UK. The new Jetsetter.co.uk mirrors the US site in style and most reviews, but offers are tailored to the English traveler. Plus they've now got something the US site doesn't: a charity angle, with celebrity endorsement.
From now through January 9, book any of these 9 London hotels at Jetsetter.co.uk and they'll donate £1 for each night of your stay to the UK charity SleepSmart, a new branch of the huge charity StreetSmart, which directly aids the homeless. You don't need to stay at the hotel before January 9, just book it by then to secure the donation.
