Spanish Hotel Chain is exploring program to accept Bitcoin payments

It has been reported by the Daily Hodl that Casual Hoteles, a popular hotel chain across Spain, is launching a pilot program to test out the idea of customer payments in Bitcoin. The move aims to attract tech savvy millenials living the nomadic lifestyle.

Bitcoin isn't the only payment option being explored, they are also experimenting with Amazon Pay, in hopes of being accessible to those who prefer to use digital payments over traditional ones.

The target audience is generally digital nomads, or those who work online and travel the world. Networks such as Roam and Unsettled have accomodated to this population, but now Casual Hoteles believes it can compete as well.

Users are able to scan a QR code through the website, or in person, to pay for their hotel stay. They can also receive a payment code through WhatsApp, which allows for BitPay to process the payment.
