Boutique Hotels in Barcelona
Hotels come in all shapes and sizes. They can be family friendly, pet friendly, individual resorts and chains which are the same across the world. They can also range from budget priced to the sky’s the limit. One type that has seen particular growth is boutique hotels and a city that specialises in them is Barcelona.
If you’re a couple looking to get away for a city break or romantic weekend at reasonable prices, boutique hotels are becoming the favourite choice. They offer a more individualistic and intimate experience, and are typically smaller in size than your average chain hotel and usually in prime city centre or trendy locations. The emphasis is often on style rather luxury which can allow for specialist themes and quirks of taste in building design and room furnishings. Minimal chic is one example of a style that has become popular in recent years.
Originally popularised in the USA, boutique hotels have quickly established themselves in major European cities like Barcelona. With limited space in the city centre and a wealth of surrounding architecture that suits the boutique experience, it’s a perfect fit. Fine examples include the Praktik with branches on Rambla de Cataluña and C/ Diputació, the Wilson on Avenida Diagonal, Hotel Omm on C/ Rosselló and Hotel Pulitzer on C/ Bergara.
It’s worth remembering that many boutique hotels in Barcelona provide limited restaurant and room service facilities. You’re more likely to find a reading room or rooftop terrace in their place.
