Inside BCN Holiday apartments

Unlike single location hotels, Inside BCN boasts three separate buildings throughout the city, each hosting numerous apartments in modern youthful stylings.

Two of the vacation rentals are located in centric Born, offering studios, apartments and lofts with both one and two bedrooms. While you won’t hear someone rapping at your door at eight in the morning yelling out, “house cleaning!” (for better or for worse), you will feel comfortably pampered nonetheless. Each apartment is fully equipped, whether you want a kitchen for cooking, satellite TV and DVD player for relaxing after a day of city exploration or Wi-Fi for plugging into the world you swore you were unplugging from (or just checking Unlike for a dinner recommendation), you won’t be disappointed.

In the heart of Barcelona, just a few minutes walk from the beach and Las Ramblas, Born is where the historic and the modern intertwine, catering to food lovers, followers of fashion and culture vultures.

The third apartment complex is located in Sants—next to the Carrer de Sants, the city’s longest shopping street—and houses the most thoughfully decorated dwellings. Not directly near the beach, staying in this area has other pluses like its proximity to the trade center or the relatively easy stroll to Las Ramblas and Plaça Catalunya.

Next To Hotel Up and coming

Opened in July 2008, Next To is one of Barcelona’s youngest hotels. What it lacks in age, however, it makes up for in its playful aesthetic and ideal location. Situated in the heart of Barcelona in the modernist Eixample district, To Next is just a few meters from the Paseo de Gracia and some of the most prestigious shops and restaurants in town.

For those in need of a breather from the bustling city, there is the hotel’s unique garden terrazza with hanging wicker chairs, wooden garden furniture and a view of “La Pedrera” on the first floor. Alternatively the top floor of the building provides a fully equipped solarium. All rooms are decked out in a trendy, minimalist appeal, mirrored by the tasteful decor of the lobby.

Hotel Majestic The art of rest

The glass-fronted entrance to this imposing neoclassical building is flanked by designer boutiques. The large chandelier that hangs in the cream marble lobby welcomes guests to a stay of elegance and luxury. The public spaces, all displaying contemporary artworks, bustle with corporate guests arriving or leaving for meetings.

On the roof of the hotel guests will find a small pool and plenty of sunbathers. The roof overlooks the city, offering excellent views, particularly of the spires of La Sagrada Família. The poolside bar leads to a health club with cardiovascular machines, resistance machines and free weights. For wellness lovers, there is also a sauna and steam room.

Granados 83 Old world pillars in a modern mold

Subtle elegance and refined taste from the ‘Design Hotels™’ roster. Granados 83 explains itself as “a stunning experiment in remixed Neo-classical architecture”, located on the historic site of the old Pujol i Brull clinic. The design takes its influence from Asian art, and boasts the luxury of open space; exemplified by the central courtyard lobby under an exposed glass ceiling. Original colonnades are still visible in renovated architecture, reinforced with steel, red marble, glass and iron, and specialty materials like zebrano wood found in the halls.

Aside from the 77 rooms—some of which are duplex lofts—decked out with leather sofas, white marble, flat screen satellite cable televisions and Internet, the hotel offers plenty more pleasure and comfort at its two restaurants and bars, one specializing in Mediterranean fusion and the other, “La Terraza del Factory”, offering seasonal Asian inspired cuisine alongside the hotel’s stunning swimming pool.
