When we talk about hospitality and customer-friendly hotels, we imagine tourists full of suitcases, large families to satisfy, people who want and must feel at home. But what happens when the customer has, as the only asset with him, his bicycle?

Between Romagna and Marchea true paradise for those who love to travel on two wheels and pedal to discover new landscapes, various structures are truly suitable for cyclists, so much so that they become a category of hotels in their own right: they are the Bike Hotelhotel or country house surrounded by greenery that are modified according to the needs of cyclists and bike lovers. Bruno Barbieri cannot miss this new frontier of Made in Italy hôtellerie: in the new appointment with Bruno Barbieri 4 Hotel l (THE SPECIAL) on air Thursday 14 July on Sky and streaming on NOWgets on his bicycle, gets on the pedals and enjoys the coast between Romagna and Marche in search of the best Bike Hotel in the area.

In this journey on two wheels on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, the race – Sky Original production created by Banijay Italia – competes four Bike Hotels that are located in this area.

In the race there are:

Lungomare Hotel to Cesenatico with its owner Silvia, whose family has owned the hotel for 3 generations now. Silvia has always loved the bike and she would like to ride more often, but her commitments for her work – which she too loves infinitely – do not allow it. Her hotel, the first Bike Hotel in Cesenatico, has 53 rooms and has been hosting cyclists from all over the world for 40 years. The hotel is equipped with a bike room and all ancillary services, from bike washing to an area for repairs; the rooms are modern and with a sea view;

Hotel Dory to Riccioneof which Stephen is the owner together with his family. The hotel was opened in 1954 by his parents: he considers himself one of the first to bring the Bike Hotel formula to Italy. He is a sporty person, a biker forever and loves to ride a bike with his customers. The Dory Hotel with 38 rooms is family-run: initially born as a normal family hotel, Stefano’s intuition was to transform it into a Bike Hotel so as to keep the structure open for many more months a year. The hotel is equipped with a bike room, bike rental, washing corner and a place to arrange your own bicycle;

Marinella Hotel to Gabicce Mare with its owner Federica: she manages the structure together with her brother, she loves her job and keeps company with guests to whom she wants to offer a different experience than the usual hotel, welcoming them in the warmest and friendliest way possible. Hotel Marinella is part of a context of peace and intimacy and directly overlooks the beach of their property. The peculiarity of the structure lies in its hall, built as if it were a real town square complete with balconies overlooking the hall. The 50 rooms have a classic and slightly eighties style, but the real strength lies in the view;

Ca ‘Virginia represented by its owner Giacomo: it is a rural building located in the Marche region but just beyond the border, which is why he calls himself “marchignolo”. He is a huge cycling enthusiast, as soon as he can he goes out on his bike which, for him, is an intimate object so much that he can’t stay away from it. Giacomo doesn’t like confusion and hotels that are too big. Ca ‘Virginia is a Country House opened in the early 2000s which consists of two parts, a nineteenth-century rural house and a more modern area. It currently has 23 rooms including three apartments, and the property also offers an excellent restaurant with km0 products and a wellness center.

The mechanism of the 4 Hotel race remains unchanged even in this episode – coming soon Thursday July 14 at 9:15 pm on Sky Uno, always available on demand, visible on Sky Go and streaming on NOW. The four hotels competing, of different price ranges or categories, will compete for the title by focusing on their own charm and peculiarities. The hoteliers, colleagues and opponents at the same time, led by the exacting and severe expert of hôtellerie Bruno Barbieri, will spend a day and a night in each other’s hotels; once you have checked in, for each hotel the starred Chef will personally experience the welcome, the style, the cleanliness, the hotel services and more generally the hospitality of each hotelier. At breakfast, after the check-out, the competitors will judge each other. For each, a vote from 0 to 10 on 5 categories: location, room, Breakfast, services, price.

The new commitment of Bruno Barbieri always remains first, the enhancement of eco-sustainable choices carried out by hoteliers: every time he finds particular attention to these issues he can in fact affix his “green seal”, demonstrating how it is possible, thanks also to small precautions, to combine hospitality and attention to environmental sustainability.

World traveler, with his distinguished, sophisticated and elegant style, Bruno is the conductor, guide, observer and above all judge of the race. For work, but also for passion, the Chef has traveled a lot, to the point of becoming a true expert in hotel hospitality: he knows all the secrets, as well as the different habits depending on the latitudes. During the episodes, all this experience will allow him – showing off his more ironic, pungent and rigorous side – to tell the challenge by putting hoteliers in front of small and large unforeseen events to evaluate their problem solving skills and attention to the customer.

With his votes, at the end of each episode he will be able to confirm or revolutionize the verdict resulting from the votes of the 4 protagonists of the episode. Only one of the competing hoteliers will thus be awarded an economic contribution to be reinvested in their company.

After the Bike Hotels in the area between Romagna and Marche, this trip by 4 hotels will close at Ischia.
