Hidden Gem in Barcelona!

Review of Wittmore Hotel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Jan 2024
If you are looking for a boutique hotel with fine furnishings and thoughtful staff, this is your hotel hide away. It is tucked behind an alley that leads to other shops and restaurants. The hotel is just a few walkable blocks from the seaside as well. There is a rooftop wading pool too that allows you to relax and unwind. The only down side we found was the rooms were not well lit. Perhaps a more powerful lamp(s) could be purchased for the rooms.
Excellent hotel service and accommodations!

Hello Koala-n-Seal,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your comments with us, we greatly appreciate your feedback and we are glad to hear that you had a wonderful experience with us at Wittmore.
We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the fine furnishings, thoughtful staff, and the hidden gem ambiance. Our hotel is located in the heart of Barcelona allowing you to explore most of the must see city attractions by foot whilst being only a few blocks from Port Vell and the seaside.
Our rooftop terrace and wading pool is the perfect place to unwind and to enjoy the Barcelona sun.
We greatly appreciate your feedback regarding the room lighting. Your suggestion about more powerful lamps is very valuable to us, and we will certainly review this internally to explore ways to enhance the lighting in our rooms for a more comfortable stay.

It was a pleasure having you as our guest, and we hope to welcome you back again soon on your next trip to the city.

Sexy and swanky! This adults-only boutique hotel is tucked away in an ally of the gothic quarter. I recommend mapping the location before arriving. While there isn't so much to do around the area, it is not too long a walk to the Placa de Catalunya area. We had rooms 206 & 306, which were the hotel's Large Room. The rooms were slightly above average size, and featured multiple French doors that opened to the courtyard. The bathroom was average size. The hotel bar is lovely. We received terrific service every time we came back to the hotel. Reserving cabs ahead of time was recommended, as it typically takes 15 minutes to get a taxi. Turn-down service featured a snack each night.

It's wonderful to hear that our Large Rooms, especially rooms 206 & 306, met your expectations with their spaciousness and French doors opening to the courtyard and largest vertical garden in the cty. It is also lovely to hear that you appreciated our turndown service that we offer.

Wow! I simply cannot recommend this hotel enough. Why? Service was impeccable - they were so friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. Facilities - room was great (very comfortable, well appointed, quiet .... could not fault a thing). Food was awesome. Breakfast was a real treat - simply delicious. And we also ate there one evening (the tasting menu) and it was just great. What a lovely stay - thank you so much Wittmore hotel!
So grateful to have found this place - we will be back!!

We loved this little hidden gem in the heart of Barcelona- most beautiful design- amazing food and the best staff ever.
Not to mention the cosy gorgeous decorated rooms - with free minibar!!!
- the best drinks and backgammon in front of the fireplace after a long stroll in the streets of Barcelona, is just a perfect way to end your day.

Room tip: Great place to Eat at restaurant Balabusta - and a day trip out to see Dali Museum and House is an absolute must visit. The Cap de Creus is

This hotel is beautifully thought out and was a wonderful place to explore Barcelona from. The room had everything we needed, it was spacious and the bathroom was also big enough to feel luxurious. There were lots of little touches that made it feel really special, each day they provide 2 beers, some gin and tonic, a lime, crisps, some little snacks like olives or a piece of cake. The staff are particularly lovely and friendly, breakfast was perfect.

Room tip: Taxis can’t get super close to the hotel, you have to walk about 200 metres through the medieval streets of the old town.

The room war very stylish but had its quirks. The dark walls and low light bulbs make it dark which is a shame if you're looking to enjoy the Mediterranean sun. While the quality of food at the restaurant is good, service is quite slow and I wouldn't recommend adding breakfast. It's much cheaper and faster to pickup from one of the many bakeries nearby. Being a small hotel, my last night there was a private event that turned the main courtyard into a dance party past midnight. All rooms look into the courtyard so it's not ideal. Definitely check if there is an event going on during your stay if you're a light sleeper.

Room tip: The area has a lot of pickpocketing at night and no access by car to the front of the hotel. Also, the pool is not heated and only 0.5 meter
