We have great news! We have received a very special prize! We are glad to tell you that we have been awarded with a Sustainable Tourism in Catalunya prize, in the entrepreneurship category!
These awards acknowledge the best practices in responsible tourism in Catalunya: those who struggle to minimize tourism’s impact on environment and local communities. The awards are organised by Xarxa de Turisme Responsable (ICRT Barcelona) and DESCOBRIR magazine, in collaboration with the Catalan government and Barcelona city council.
Twentytú has been recognised with the award on Entrepreneurship (projects less than 3 years old), due to the innovation in an urban environment and because it is a differential project in the accommodation business. The jury considers Twentytú to be «a source of inspiration for new projects» and an icon in new generation luxury youth hostels.
We hope to become a reference for others and spread our sustainable and respectul towards environment model to all touristic businesses. Let’s bet on responsible tourism!
What do we do to promote sustainable tourism? We were the first the first building in Barcelona intended for hotel use to be awarded the highest energy efficiency classification. We use domotics and smart technology to guarantee sustainability and energetic efficiency on our installations. Read all about it on Twentytú Ecohostel. And once in a while we talk about sustainable tourism on our blog: have a look at the posts!
Ah, and we also love cycling in Barcelona!
