Pros: Superb location, stylish, great value for this location
Cons: Basic rooms are compact, can feel enclosed
Of all Eixample’s streets, Rambla de Catalunya is one of my favorites. Partly this is because of the pedestrianized strip down the middle (and the relatively light traffic because of that). Partly it’s because unlike the fancier Passage de Gracia which runs parallel a block away, there are more local stores here too.
So Murmuri is in a a great location.
It is also a hotel that does design well, from the smart entrance and lobby bar to the glass cube lift, things look good. And there are only 53 rooms, so it never feels overwhelmingly large.
Rooms are comfortable too. The basic ones are fairly compact, but still livable.
But the real draw for me is the value – for this location and the smart design, Murmuri is stellar value.
The W Barcelona stands alone…literally. All the design flair you expect of the W brand sits at the end of Barcelona’s main beach. Whichever way you look there’s a view. Something of a new Barcelona icon.
Hotel Arts is like a bookend to Barcelona’s main beach, with the W at the other end. Arts is a long way from being the cheapest accommodation in town, but for foodies the price may be worth it – two-Michelin-star Enoteca Paco Pérez is in the building – and the service and views across the Med can’t really be matched.
