First of all - I would definitely stay here again. The rooms are clean, very reasonable price, and a good location. Friendly, helpful reception staff. I loved the funky feel - it was a nice change from the narrow experience of what a hotel should be. Multiple colored lights in the hallway, reflected off plastic bead drapes around each room door. High ceilings, broad staircases, and dark wood floors. Also glassed in showers, at times unique furniture...but a lovely little leisure / coffee / tea spot for residents. Booze in the vending machine, and nice bar downstairs by reception. Some of the furniture ideas were straight from 1968, but it worked! It was refreshing to stay somewhere that wasn't afraid of being unique. Only downside was some street noise.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A hotel that combines the traditional with the futuristic in a privileged environment: a building that is more than 100 years old with spectacular ceilings over seven metres high and spaces designed to surprise and enjoy. Its rooms, with an original glass shower in the room, are chameleon-like: you can change the colour depending on your mood. The passageways, full of enchantment and mystery, mutate with colour changes from the lights in the rooms. Enjoy our “Beyourself” and “Helpyourself” area in the common area where you can relax listening to music, reading any of our books or having a coffe, tea or water for free. Also, if you want to move about the city at your own pace, bicycles are available to rent. Once you try them, you won’t want to use any other transport in Barcelona. You can also enjoy our chic&basic tour, a two hour walk through Ciutat Vella in which we will mix history with some curiosities, as well as gastronomic and nightlife suggestions. Enjoy it on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays at 10:00am. ... more less
