Trendy Barcelona hotels for Mobile World Congress
The Mobile World Congress is just around the corner and is time to choose a comfy hotel in sunny Barcelona. Here are some of the most trendy hotels you can find in this mermerizing city:
The Eixample is a bourgoeis district planned in the 19th century as an antidote to the dark downtown alleys. Money mongers developers screwed with the original idea but still you get a sense of what Eixample used to be in this hotel. Just a block away of wonderful open space at its heart. There are 11 rooms and 4 apartments, with painted glass wall tiles and nice furniture from the 60s.
Casa Bella Gracia, Gràcia
Every big city has a district like Gràcia. Village alike, away from the crowded tourists that mingle around downtown, it has a mixture between hipster culture with his eco-boutiques, veggie restaurants and bicycles. You’ll find this sweet hotel, with his 12 rooms, beautifully designed with tiled floors and original posters. There’s a pretty roof terrace for a DIY breakfast coffee or sundowner.
We Boutique Hotel, Arc de Triomf
This hotel looks like a modernist boutique apartment block, right next to Ciutadella park, have used lots of retro furniture and half-stripped timber but it’s not too cool for school. There are only 6 rooms, simple furnishings. But if you pay a few more euros you can get a room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a balcony. It’s on the edge of the Born district, with its vast choice of bars and restaurants.
Yurbban Trafalgar, Born
There is an old Catalan saying: Travel around the world and then settle in old Born. The Born is the most hip neighbourhood of Barcelona. Yurbban has 56 rooms in this former old factory. And all will be forgiven once you get to the roof, where there’s a plunge pool, loungers and breathtaking views over the Born and beyond.
