I lived and worked in New York for 8 years as an Interior Designer and 1 of my favourite areas was West Village. When I arrived at Carrer Mallorca 209 and stepped through the beautiful antique Spanish wooden entrance doors I knew I had made the right decision to stay here. The layout was simple and elegant but yet still eclectic. From the custom jelly fish lights to the beautiful terracotta patio you felt that you had been transport to a hidden gem. But I truly feel that the look and atmosphere of any establishment comes from the top down and this is why Steve and Johnathan deserve all the praise. From there relaxed, friendly laid back attitude to the amazing recommendations for food and drink within the area you simply cannot go wrong. I highly recommend zoo rooms to anybody even thinking of staying in the Barcelona no matter what your budget happens to be.
