This boutique hotel is in a great location on the edge of Barcelona's Gothic district, the Picasso museum virtually its next door neighbour, and some of the best tapas restaurants to be found in Barcelona (El Expanyet and Bar Del Pla). The hotel it's self...More

I found this hotel in the book Barcelona: Architecture and Design, of which it's the first chapter. The adaptation (intrusion?) into this grand Renaissance Revival building is dramatic and very intriguing. Some rooms are small and awkward. The slightly larger rooms are just the right...More

Great central location on paper. The white rooms and beading in the rooms may sounds great but combined with the unique lighting feature (ours did not work properly) it all has a cheap, adult movie type feeling, if you looking for that sort of atmosphere....More

About
Description
A hotel that combines the traditional with the futuristic in a privileged environment: a building that is more than 100 years old with spectacular ceilings over seven metres high and spaces designed to More surprise and enjoy. Its rooms, with an original glass shower in the room, are chameleon-like: you can change the colour depending on your mood. The passageways, full of enchantment and mystery, mutate with colour changes from the lights in the rooms. Enjoy our “Beyourself” and “Helpyourself” area in the common area where you can relax listening to music, reading any of our books or having a coffe, tea or water for free. Also, if you want to move about the city at your own pace, bicycles are available to rent. Once you try them, you won’t want to use any other transport in Barcelona. You can also enjoy our chic&basic tour, a two hour walk through Ciutat Vella in which we will mix history with some curiosities, as well as gastronomic and nightlife suggestions. Enjoy it on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays at 10:00am. Less

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

Yes, the toilet is private, next to the "open" glass shower cubicle in the room that we had. I guess all the rooms are the same.
