Step through gleaming glass doors and be greeted not by the usual lobby lounge but by an enormous, modern playground with musical beats playing in the background and plenty of modular designer sofas, curvy lounge chairs and vibrantly colored poufs. Order a drink, play a board game, taste some tapas — then, yes, check in. The beats continue at the mezzanine-level swimming pool and bar and up in the 007-style nightclub.
Bed and Bath
Low platform beds covered in 350-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets sit center stage in front of floor-to-ceiling windows that offer sweeping city views. Many of the futuristic cocoon-like rooms are outfitted in curvy furnishings that echo the walls’ rounded edges, as well as smoky floor-length mirrors. Fully automated mood lighting systems cast a hot pink, blue or yellow glow over the otherwise pale surroundings. Gray tile bathrooms are fitted with rainfall showers with frosted glass doors, piles of plush towels and Bliss bath products.
The sexy infinity pool and wet bar, surrounded by sun loungers and curtained cabanas, overlooks the boardwalk and beach. The SoCal-inspired Salt restaurant features indoor and outdoor seating areas where flip-flop-wearing diners munch on gourmet burgers and seafood risotto. For something dressier, book a table at Bravo24, where Carlos Abellán, a Michelin-starred chef, has created a menu inspired by cookbooks of the early 20th century that highlights Spain’s outstanding produce and ingredients. Up on the 26th floor, Eclipse lounge, a glam, Bond-style nightclub, features octagonal tables, gold sofas and killer views and is loved by Barceloneta locals and tourists alike. A state-of-the-art 3,000-square-foot gym and Spain’s first Bliss spa complete the picture at this urban resort.
In the Area
In Barceloneta the thing to do is take advantage of the beachfront location. Take a walk to Marina Port Vell, whose entrance is punctuated by Roy Lichtenstein’s Barcelona Head, a 64-foot ceramic tile sculpture the artist created for the 1992 summer Olympics. Set in a port warehouse nearby is the Catalonia History Museum, which showcases 3,000 years of Catalan history though permanent and temporary exhibits. Take in the city sights (Sagrada Familia and Torre Agbar are visible) aboard Barceloneta’s Port Cable Car, which connects across the port to Montjuc in 10 minutes.
How to Get There
Very stylish modern and luxurious hotel ,it’s a perfect place for couples or just with a friends.I liked Nespresso coffee in the room (I love my coffees so much) nice start to the day with a great view
Everything is just perfect
I visited hotel next time. Atmosphere is still very good. The only but very important is question of smell in the room. The personel use perfumes to kill this smell but it helps only for a few hours.
The personell very proffesional. the views amusing.
We came for a 3 nights break from last Thursday! We thoroughly enjoyed our break and the hospitality the hotel offers! It was my birthday as well and they brought champagne and special cake in our room! I would really like to thank the barman Nahuel Burone who gave excellent service and made us cocktails and chocolates (photos as below)! Thank you all x
