Coronavirus updates

We are in the midst of a novel and extremely serious situation. Overcoming it will require everyone’s collaboration and responsibility.

All our ARTIEM hotels remain shut, in accordance with current regulations, so as to protect everyone’s health.

We are closely monitoring events and the latest news in this ever-changing scenario. It is our firmest desire to see this crisis through and these are our currently scheduled dates* for reopening our hotels:

  • ARTIEM Audax, ARTIEM Carlos, ARTIEM Asturias: 12 June
  • ARTIEM Capri, ARTIEM Madrid: 26 June

*These dates may be subject to change.

We are concerned for your future travels

At this time it is vital to know there will always be someone by your side to keep you updated on your travel conditions.

So as to best adapt to your needs, we have developed the FLEXMYSTAY concept for bookings made through our website. What does this involve?

  • So you can adapt your trip, we have made our booking modification conditions fully flexible for bookings made directly with ARTIEM before 15 June for a stay during 2020.
  • You can cancel or modify your booking at no cost up to 48 hours beforehand. · Our team is always available to help you via email at [email protected] to answer any request or concern regarding your booking.
  • Upon reopening our hotels, we will set up a dedicated personalised phone line to respond to any queries related to Covid-19.
  • Before you arrive you will receive an email containing relevant information on the Covid-19 situation at your destination, along with recommendations concerning the experience.
  • If you made your booking through a travel agency or third party, please contact your provider to obtain information on their policies and how they can help you.

Committed to our environment

We are all aware of the serious collateral effects this situation may have on our society and the economy.

Ever faithful to our commitment to create prosperity in our environment, we have offered our services to the authorities and our collaborators to work shoulder to shoulder, minimising the effects of this crisis. To date, these are the initiatives we have undertaken:

  • All our ARTIEM hotels in Madrid, Asturias and Menorca have been placed at the health authorities’ service. Currently, our hotel ARTIEM Carlos in Menorca has been put to medical use. · We have set up initiatives such as “Menorquí Km0” to support local businesses, committed to Menorca’s sustainability and future.
  • With the goal of delivering fresh food to Menorcan families in vulnerable situations, we joined the initiative “Tu solidaridad vale el doble” (Your Solidarity is Worth Double) along with CaixaBank, Fundación “la Caixa”, Cáritas Diocesana de Menorca and Sa Cooperativa del Camp.
  • Our team members are involved in solidarity projects in their various towns, like producing PPE for the health services or collaborating with Down Madrid, amongst others.

A pause to progress

Over these weeks we have realised that a pause can take us a long way, because when we stop we become more aware of what those tiny things are that make us happy, motivating us to improve daily.

Because if anything characterises the Freshpeople it is their positive attitude and desire to excel. And though our hosts have had to stay home, they dream of welcoming you soon with their brightest smile.

We are grateful for your support and trust in ARTIEM. We will keep you informed of any change and will be delighted to give you a warm welcome at any of our hotels once life returns to normal.
