The hotel, which has taken four years to construct, will provide accommodation for team members on nights before matches, with dedicated floors to the players.
The 85-room hotel is offering a decor comprising of Boca Juniors memorabilia, while hotel amenities include a guest lobby, a luxury spa and a fitness facility. The rooms are decorated with photographs of the team players, and room rates range between GBP90 and GBP370 per night.
The hotel also hosts a museum dedicated to the team, and offers documentaries on the team, on demand, to its guests. Fans of the team will be able to relive the nostalgia associated with the team as well as enjoy the excitement of staying with the football team players during home town matches.
The president of Boca Juniors, Daniel Angelici, said in an interview, ‘We predict success for this hotel, as much for its architecture as for its colours, which are our own and represent our passion and love.’
