Sultry metropolitan beauty featuring a supper club and bespoke cocktail bar on the fringe of Barcelona's edgy El Born District
EDITION hotels are often elegant microcosms of the cities they occupy, and their Barcelona outpost—an entrancing combination of Gaudí-inspired grandeur and up-to-the-minute amenities—is no exception. Hotelier Ian Schrager tapped local interiors whiz Lázaro Rosa-Violán to distill each space with the avant-garde spirit of El Born, the city’s indisputable creative hub. That artistic authenticity is especially detectable at Bar Veraz, where a quartet of pieces by local painters and glorious Saint Caterina Market views accompany seasonal tapas. The hotel’s lounge, Cabaret, a sumptuous subterranean spot with velvet curtains, low ceilings, and live DJs, attracts a well-heeled after-hours crowd while the aptly named Roof, an all-day haunt (and one of Barcelona’s only year-round rooftops), is equipped with a saltwater plunge pool and a marble-fronted bar that slings both smoothies and cocktails. In between, 100 rooms are clean-cut retreats with whitened oak, surrealist art by Madrid-based Chema Madoz, and walnut paneling intended to resemble the blinds used in some of Barcelona’s historic quarters. For the most charming Barri Gotic panoramas, spring for one of the four spacious suites—then enjoy the view.
In the Area
Guests are within walking distance of many Barcelona landmarks including the Barcelona Cathedral and the three-tiered, 10,000-stall Santa Caterina Market, which locals prefer to the heavily trafficked Boqueria. The city’s main beaches, Passeig de Gracia and Las Ramblas, are also easily reachable on foot. Other neighborhood highlights include La Colmena, a patisseria that’s been around since 1849; the Tuxedo Social Club, a classic speakeasy tucked behind a library; and Ramon Cuberta, a custom footwear boutique. If you’re looking for a more casual alternative to the hotel’s swanky dining options, duck into Casa Mari I Rufo, a tapas joint nearby.
How to Get There
Overall this experience was fantastic, we went to their Cabaret supper club and it is a place that excels expectations. The club/space is beautiful, relaxed and at the same time the staff is attentive and knowledge.
The food was fun & thoughtful, and exceptionally well thought through dishes & wine pairings with enough novelty to keep you smiling. The service was beyond fault & the setting just beautiful.
I loved everything about this caberet, the live performance was spectacular too! A must for everyone in the area at least once.
This was actually our second time staying at this hotel. The first time was during the pre-opening time and that first experience what actually made us came back again this year. It was such a nice and memorable stay!
I mean, what else you could've asked for? This hotel is centrally located in the city of Barcelona, you could even walk to the train station nearby and option of metro stops.
The service was started from the moment we came in - guest's recognition at the check-in desk (i mean, wow!!). Very professional, welcoming and accommodating. Thanks to some of the front office associates; Munir, Katia, Martin for their genuine assistance and made our stay effortless. Well done guys!!
Room experience, we were very happy with our room. The bed? By far the best bed we have ever slept in. I love their signature hotel amenities and the scents from LeLabo fragrances - very much in-line with the hotel ambiance and vibes.
The Roof bar & lounge on the top floor; best place to spend an early evening with some of their best snacks and cocktails before stepping out for dinner and experience Barcelona's nightlife. I have to mention this again though, guest's recognition from The Roof's staff; Thanks for your genuine service Lena & Uri.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel for your upcoming stay in Barcelona. We sure will come back again. #Love
Recently on a trip to Spain we stayed at the Edition. I was a bit skeptical when we arrived but I was proven wrong. It was a well designed hotel with great service.
If I could make a complaint it would be the room is a touch small. One other issue would be the “pool” on the roof. I would use the term pool very lightly. It was more of a large bathtub at best. Since I was not really in Barcelona to swim it was ok. The roof had a great bar and lounge area fun place to end the day. I am not sure I would stay there more than the 3 nights we did just because of the room size and closet space.
They had a great breakfast on the ground floor. Staff was pleasant and helpful.
Location was perfect for getting around and cabs were easy to get as there was a cab stand on the corner.
Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for anyone passing through the area.
