The luxury tourism sector is set in Barcelona

Barcelona has a cultural offer comparable to that of the largest cities in the world. So, you can visit interesting museums, walk through extensive beaches, attend numerous cultural events and eat at fine restaurants. But since the art and the culture of the city attract millions of tourists every year, many are the walks during which you will be able to admire beautiful buildings that go all over the streets, which include modernist buildings, of Gothic or contemporary architecture. Among the buildings that might draw your attention, you can have five-star hotels and more generally the Barcelona’s luxury hotels.

 Historic city buildings are becoming new hotels:

the most prestigious hotels in Barcelona are located in the downtown, just in the center of the city, near Las Ramblas and Paseo de Gracia. But we must also mention the Còrsega street, since it has just opened a new five-star hotel.

 The Monument Hotel replaces the Casa Enric Batlló:

As we have just mentioned the Passeig de Gràcia avenue, let’s keep talking about it: a new five star hotel –the Monument Hotel– has just opened its doors on the main avenue of Barcelona. This hotel is, as the Anna hotel that we’ve mentioned before, the result of the refurbishment of an ancient historical monument of the Catalan capital: the Casa Enric Batlló. This Casa Enric Batlló was built between 1895 and 1896 and some prestigious architects have contributed to turn the Casa Enric Batlló into a new hotel. Elements of the original building have been preserved and modern elements were added. The Monument Hotel has 84 rooms and remarquable suites and its surface area reaches about 8000m2. The style of Gaudí is present in the decoration of the rooms through his known ‘panot’ (his famous hexagonal tiles). In addition, the gastronomic menus of the Monument Hotel restaurant will be cooked by a Basque chef with seven Michelin stars. These hotels located on the Paseo de Gracia avenue stands for the perfect occasion that will allow you to be close to the most exclusive boutiques and to be near the most fashion locations.
