Spent three nights here during our visit to Barcelona and we enjoyed our
stay. Shaped like a gift box, this was a pretty new, modern hotel with quirky design and eye catching furniture. It was stylish in its own way, a building with character.
We liked the location of this hotel. It was not in the centre of the city but not far from the Gracia subway station and within walking distance to the MarBella beach, and a short walk to the Diagonal Mar Shopping centre.
It was hard not to mention about the interior design of this place. Green sofas at the reception area, green chairs at the library / bar and green benches at the restaurant. The red chairs had their place at the computer counter. There were something like free hands paintings on the ceiling which were playful,
imaginative, and young at heart. The ceiling was white and the paintings were black. I loved the piece of cloud “hanging” there.
The hallway of every floor were fully painted differently with graffiti murals.
We were at the second floor and the hallway was all in black and little scary
and hard to locate the room number. Our room was nice, bright, spacious, new and clean, and we loved the high tech in lighting. Little items on the wall were put in yellow, red and blue, playing around in the back ground color of black and white, very interesting. My husband said this place looked like YMCA and the corner of the room looked like a classroom for kindergarden... No matter you like this type of design or not, it was fun and it was a comfortable room. No complaint.
The washroom was well equipped, clean and separated with the toilet. Just felt a little sorry for the colorful painting about the city being put on the side wall of the toilet.
The swimming pool and gym were at the 8th floor, yet we couldn’t manage time to use these facilities. The computer counter was great. Many hotels we encountered only provided one to three computers for public use and they were old models. This one was generously equipped with six brand new IMac, yet there was a 50 euros deposit to receive the keyboard. It was ok as the computers worked fast and effectively.
The staff rolled up the paper note (for deposit) with the rubber band and returned to you at the time you returned the keyboard....
A nice stay and won’t mind to return..
