TESA ASSA ABLOY fits out Hotel Quinta de San Francisco


A minimalist aesthetic and comfort are the main features of this hotel on the Camino de Santiago. TESA ASSA ABLOY provided what it was looking for: cutting-edge locks in terms of both design and functionality, to improve the guest experience.

Every year, thousands of pilgrims walk the Camino de Santiago, typically sleeping in the hostels available along the route. However, the hotel offer is increasing in response to the growing demand for a more comfortable experience. Among these are Hotel Quinta de San Francisco in Castrojeriz (Burgos), completely fitted out with solutions from TESA ASSA ABLOY.

The Specification and Hotel teams from the company worked together to provide a complete solution that integrates electronics with mechanics. Coordination with the distributor Innovahotel, the hotel owners, the building firm Grupo Poblador and the architectural studio Gaztelu Arquitectos was crucial.

In a hotel with pure and minimalist lines, the aesthetic was a fundamental criterion when choosing the solutions. Hence, the latest generation locks were installed in the hotel, specifically the i-volution and i-max handles known for their technology, pioneering design and durability. Both can be opened by Smartphone using the Openow™ app to improve the guest experience. Guests can open all doors with their mobile. They receive their virtual key before arriving, saving them the queue in reception before being able to access their room.

All devices work via Wireless Online, an advanced access control system operating from a web server and that enables total real-time control over all locks from any electronic device using the network on site or the Internet. Any change to the software database is automatically updated on the devices and the information can be checked in an instant.

In short, Hotel Quinta de San Francisco is equipped with cutting-edge access solutions including designer locks with latest-generation technology to create a more comfortable guest experience and assist hotel staff in their day-to-day work.
