There are few cities in the world more art and design oriented than Barcelona. Heck, they even have a work-in-progress monument to the spectacularness of design (erm, sort of) that is more than a century in development. So it seems a perfect fit that the design-oriented Hotel Pulitzer lives in Barcelona.
Nestled alongside Plaça Catalunya, (widely considered to be both the city’s centre and the meeting point of old and new Barcelona) it’s ideally located for exploring the city’s Gothic and El Born quarters. Attention to detail flourishes here, as Mr and Mrs Smith put it, “from the ornate front desk – made from gilt-edged panels taken from a Sicilian church – through to the Asian-inspired themes in the communal areas, and even the simply framed artworks in all the rooms, a laid-back, arty feel pervades throughout.”
Perhaps most happily, this location and aesthetic delight doesn’t come with the price tag you’d expect. Rooms (and there’s 92 of them) start at just €99.00 a night.
Surprisingly, given the price, the hotel has a great range of facilities (free wifi, day spa, laundry service, etc.) lacking only a pool amongst the list of common hotel amenities. Where Hotel Pulitzer really shines however, is on the entertainment front. With a foodie-oriented restaurant, buzzing bar, rooftop terrace and live music program during the Summer months, this is the perfect place to cap off a day of exploring before falling into bed.
