A Spanish hotel chain is offering a free service which allows guests to access the internet when they are out and about in Spain, and not just while they are on hotel premises.

The WiMate service is being offered by Spanish hotel chain Room Mate Hotels.

The service — introduced on Monday — lets people access the internet wherever there is coverage 24 hours a day, according to the company.

By hooking up to a small mobile router, guests at eleven of the company's hotels in Spain can access the internet using six different devices including laptops and iPads.

People can also use the gadget when travelling between different participating hotels, a spokesperson for the company told The Local.

This means that if you stay at a hotel belonging to the chain in Toledo and then again in Barcelona, you can keep the device with you. 

Anyone who books online can reserve the service.

"One of the big problems when it comes to travelling is the lack of (internet) connection and the high fees you pay on the road," said Room Mate Hotels founder Kike Sarasola in a statement.

"With this service we are offering our customers an essential service and a new way of travelling," said the former Olympian 

Room Mates Hotels plan to roll out its WiMate services in its other Spanish hotels at a later date.
