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.
