This gay-favorite hotel in the Eixample is a 10-minute walk from most of the bars, clubs, and shops of the Gaixample. It is also a quick 2-minute walk to Provença train and metro station (lines 7 and 6), and a 10 minutes to Barcelona must-sees like Casa Batlló, Casa Milà, and Rambla de Cataluña.
As the name implies, the hotel is dedicated to contemporary art, with original pieces decorating every space, including some by world-famous Catalan artists like Joan Miró and Miquel Barceló. The result is creative, colorful, and energizing – fans of art will particularly appreciate the fact that each floor is dedicated to a particular artist, with every room featuring nods to their unique styles. In order to highlight the art, the rest of the decor remains soothingly neutral.
The rooms are compact but extremely comfortable, with some of them featuring a furnished balcony overlooking classic Eixample architecture. There is a complimentary Nespresso machine in every room as well as both hot and cold air conditioning.
The gay-friendly hotel also includes a modern art-themed restaurant, a sleek and stylish lobby bar, a stunning outdoor bar with plunge pool, and L’Olivera Terrace, an exceptionally pleasant courtyard with a century-old olive tree at its center.
