Nestled amongst historic architecture, independent fashion boutiques and pavement cafés, this exquisite 4 star Top Secret Hotel is a hidden gem that’s well worth discovering! Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter is the ideal spot to make a base during your stay in the city, as it is close enough to all the major tourist attractions, the beach, and other places of interest, for first-time or regular visitors, whilst enjoying a more tucked-away location! The elegant design of the property, its friendly staff and the extensive offering of luxury amenities, all make this hotel an even more desirable option. Some of the services and facilities provided include 24 hour security and concierge, for your safety and convenience, WiFi, dry cleaning, luggage room and safety deposit box. There are also a couple of added extras to make your stay that little bit more special, such as a library, chic lobby bar and private terrace, perfect for catching up and relaxing with friends and colleagues.
The guest rooms and suites at this chic hotel, a stone’s throw away from las ramblas, are well-designed, with ample space for living and working, and fitted with flat screen LCD TVs, safe with notebook plug, work desk, and mini-bar. The lavish private bathrooms feature a make-up mirror, hairdryer, telephone and double shower or bathtub. The hotel also prides itself on being extremely family-friendly, and accommodates to families travelling with children by providing extra cots or beds in the rooms and high chairs for dining.
The Barrio Gotic is a rabbit-warren of medieval streets hiding wonderful architecture and clandestine romantic squares. The best way to get to know the area, and learn more about its past, is to take one of the many walking tours that operate nearby. They vary in duration and in the highlights covered, but all are highly informative and can be taken in multiple languages. Some of the stop-offs include the grand Temple d’August and the Placa del Rei, and of course there’s always time to stop and put your feet up at an authentic pavement café or churros bar! Once you feel more at home in your environment, explore at your leisure and in your own time with one of the ‘bici’ rentable bikes, which you can pick up and drop off in a number of locations around the centre.
Keen historians should not miss a trip to the wonderful Barcelona City Museum, which extensively covers all eras of the city’s past, from its Roman ruins to today’s modernisation. The basement houses a huge complex of Roman ruins, which you can see up close to find out just how wine-making, fish-salting, and jewellery-crafting was done all those years ago!
