Situate yourself in the heart of Barcelona, surrounded by medieval architecture, bustling markets and vibrant street performers, when you stay at this charming 3 star Top Secret Hotel. This funny design hotel is just a few steps from las ramblas so you’ll have everything you need to ensure an exciting and memorable stay right on your doorstep. The hotel itself is housed in a beautiful old theatre which creates a rich and unique atmosphere for guests, and contrasts cleverly with the modern and convenient amenities and design-led aesthetic. Each of the spacious and comfortable guest rooms are individually designed and decorated and provide the perfect haven away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded centre. Inside you will find a television, telephone, climate control, and private bathroom with complimentary toiletries.
Aside from your room there are other communal areas within the property, ideal for relaxing and unwinding in with friends and family, such as the private terrace and gardens. The hotel and its staff pride themselves on offering a wide selection of facilities to ensure your utmost comfort at all times, including valet laundry, 24 hour reception, free WiFi access, parking and theatre reservations.
Just a short walk from the Gothic Quarter is the equally fascinating and beautiful Born neighbourhood, with historic architecture, independent tea shops and unique graffiti. Getting lost in the winding, ancient streets is the best way to explore this area as you’re bound to stumble upon a hidden boutique or bar that’s not mentioned in any guidebook. There is a great deal of interior decorating stores, filled with handmade and locally crafted pieces such as Atalanta Manufactura, where you can find unique, hand-painted silks and linen furnishings.
You can’t leave Barcelona without having experienced for yourself the legendary nightlife, and being so close to Las Ramblas, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The beautiful Placa Reial has some of the best bars and nightclubs tucked around a charming square with palm trees, fountains and live music. Start at Ocana, the rustic bar-restaurant with a café and terrace attached. The cocktails are original and surprising – don’t miss the specialty basil sangria with orange-infused brandy and fresh cranberry. Next, head to the nearby Sidecar, especially if great live music is your thing, and listen to local indie-rock bands. End your night in the infamous Jamboree, a basement nightclub that plays hip-hop and dance classics until the small hours of the morning, they even put on the occasional Flamenco performance.
