Both the rooms and the common areas breathe the authenticity of history, with the freshness and colour of the most modern Valencia.
A hotel with history
Original Domino House is a hotel with history. The building in which it is located housed a domino factory from 1918 to 1971. Founded by Amando Lizandara, for almost a century, three generations made the creation of dominos their way of life. Dominos were sold directly in the factory to individuals and casinos managers in and around Valencia. In addition, for years, the game was exported to Venezuela, the United States, Puerto Rico or the island of Fernando de Poo, a former Spanish protectorate, today known as Bioko in Equatorial Guinea.
Alonso Group, a holding company of reference in the national and international market formed by more than a hundred companies, continues to bet on diversification. Currently, the group begins in the hotel sector with the opening of this first establishment characterized by being located in a symbolic and original building.
The Management of Alonso Group considers that this is a sector in which there is going to be an important growth in which there is still space. “The world is changing very fast and it is necessary to adapt“, they point out from the Direction that considers key to find emblematic and characteristic buildings where to offer new hotel services at national level.
