move down

  • Perennially popular as a destination for art and architecture aficianados alike, Barcelona is one of the world’s major global cities, renowned for its Modernist buildings, impeccable urban planning and post-Olympic regeneration.

    The recent relaxation of a year-long moratorium on new hotel development, announced in July 2015, has seen a plethora of interesting new hotel projects opening across the city.

Recent additions include…

    • Casa Bonay – A collaborative venture from debut hotelier Inés Miró-Sans
    • Cotton House Hotel – an addition to Marriott’s Autograph Collection designed by Lázaro Rosa-Violán
    • Soho House Barcelona – Nick Jones’ conversion of an 18th century building overlooking Port Vell
    • Hotel Brummell – Barcelona-based Australian design duo Crick King and Tommy Tang’s boutique in Poble Sec
    • Margot House – A Wes Anderson-inspired hotel from father-daughter team Sandra and Sergio Durany
    • Edition Barcelona – currently under construction adjacent to the Mercat de Santa Caterina, in a landmark building by OAB

Time and Place

  • Sleepover Barcelona takes place from 23-25 April 2017, starting on St Jordi Day, when Catalonians celebrate their patron saint St Jordi with a city wide festival.

    Central to the St Jordi Day celebrations is the exchange of traditional gifts (a book for the men and a rose for the women) – across the city, the streets of Barcelona come alive with book stalls and flower markets.
