Cotton House Hotel, Autograph Collection
What We Love
- The award-winning Mayan Spa, which combines Mayan traditions and luxe Anne Semonin products
- A commitment to concierge service so strong, there’s even a dedicated room for sharing insider info
- The eye-catching six-story spiral staircase that seems to float in the air (it’s suspended from the ceiling)
- The library, with its high ceilings, overstuffed bookshelves, and tea service, is the perfect place to while away a rainy afternoon
What To Know
- Guests can rent the hotel’s Mini Cabrio convertible for cruising around the city

- For the rooms with a 19th-century aesthetic, book the Ottoman and Damask suites; the rest have a more modern vibe

Once the headquarters of the Cotton Producers’ Guild, this 19th-century building was beautifully restored by Spanish interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán, who retained the original floor tiles, ceiling frescoes, and neoclassical style that’s most evident in the spectacular octagonal hall and marble staircase. There’s also a narrow rooftop pool, bordered by cushioned sun loungers, and with a view of Gaudí’s Sagrada Família, just a mile away. All the rooms, which are painted white and named after different types of cotton (Egyptian, Madras), have Nespresso machines, bath products by Italian brand Ortigia and – an endearing touch – small flowering cotton plants. The cotton theme is carried through even to the chic restaurant, Batuar, where swatches are displayed in glass cases.
In the Area
Cotton House, like so many of Barcelona’s trendy hotels, is on the Gran Via, close to enough of the city’s attractions to keep guests entertained for a weekend without needing to hop on public transportation. It’s possible to spend a full day just in La Boqueria market, a mile from the hotel—a foodie haven packed with fabulous miniature bars, restaurants, and food stalls. The hotel is a 25-minute walk to Barcelona’s urban beach, and is even closer to the Gothic quarter and Casa Batlló, another of Gaudí’s masterpieces.
How to Get There
Nice Hotel but service is way far what you can expect from a 5stars.They just don't care of you whatever you ask.Except friendly and classy behavior from Alice atBreakfast and Merce Barcelo FrontDesk.
From the minute we stepped through the door we were welcomed into this amazing space. Beautiful furnishings and a coziness that Pottery Barn is trying to achieve but this is the real deal. A nice blend of indoor and outdoor space as the library dining folds into a sunlit bar that flows onto a terrace. Roof top plunge pool with sun deck made for a relaxing spot to get away from the city hustle. Small gym facility if you are looking for that.
We picked this hotel due to the location but quickly found out there was so much more. We have stayed at many Four Seasons but the service you get at this hotel is above all else. Young and pretty are most of the staff and they always are asking to help. If you do ask for help they take all the time you need to get you what you need. The room was bigger than I thought and even had a pull out couch for our son to stay with us a few nights who is studying abroad. The restaurants they suggested were all so very good and easy to walk to and they take care of the reservations, even the hard ones. If you are looking for a tour they will arrange it all. So many places to stay in Barcelona but if you are looking for a boutique hotel that is not too big and offers a lot of one on one service, search no further.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and remain extremely satisfied with the hotel overall. The staff were all very attentive to our needs, and the room was well appointed and thoroughly cleaned everyday. The hotel is perfectly located- walking distance to many attractions but if not there are taxis immediately outside or the metro nearby. There truly was nothing more we could have possibly wanted. Thank you to the team at Cotton House Hotel for making our trip truly memorable and we look forward to returning in the not too distant future!
Cotton House Hotel is an amazing boutique hotel! One of the best boutique hotel we ever stayed in. Everything is well selected and decorated, we were simply in love with all. The breakfast is served in a cozy space and it was also really good. The neighborhood is fantastic and very central. Definitely recommend!
