When heading to the city of Gaudi, the visionary architecture genius, why not try something more extravagant yourself? Barcelo Raval in Barcelona is a great piece of contemporary design that stands out among other hotels in town. It’s also located right in the city's center, within walking distance of Las Rambla and 500 meters away from a metro station.
You will spot the oval black building from afar, especially at night when it glimmers with colorful lights. The lobby and hotel restaurant is a great testimony that design can (and should!) be about fun. The eclectic style will almost make you dizzy with the color, pattern, and shape overload.
The literal cherry on top of Barcelo Raval is the 360-degree panoramic rooftop. During the day, you can take a dip in the pool and sunbathe away from the city’s hustle and bustle. This is a prime spot for a drink in the evening with breathtaking views of Barcelona’s skyline.
Speaking of views, your room will have floor-to-ceiling windows, so you definitely won’t have a reason to complain about those. It also comes with a rain shower, a 42 inch LED TV, and the obligatory super sleek design.
