Hotel Brummell - Urban Paradise in Barcelona

We escaped to Hotel Brummell for a long weekend last week. Located in Poble Sec at the foot of Montjuïc it was a great base to explore the city. The area feels like it has a lot of energy with great restaurants and independent shops popping up. Just far enough away from the main touristy areas, you feel like you are getting a 'real' and local experience of Barca. 

With only 20 rooms/apartments in total, Brummell feels personal, like you have discovered a secret urban paradise in the city. The interior, exterior and the whole brand experience has been stunningly designed throughout (without being pretentious!) We were made to feel really welcome by the super friendly staff. The minimal well considered interiors, with earthy and natural touches, create a beautiful palette that feels calming and inspiring, a real treat for the senses. 

A roof top pool, sauna, shady courtyard, beautifully decorated rooms, a host of great magazines, bikes to hire, friendly staff, great local recommendations, city views, a concept shop, yoga classes, Brummell is AMAZING. 

We certainly can't wait to return one day soon!
