Review Casa Camper Hotel Barcelona

Page Content

Casa Camper Hotel
To understand more about what Casa Camper Hotel is about it is first necessary to understand Camper shoes. You may not think that you know the brand but, trust me, you do. The camper shoe has a distinctive style. Their shoes are for both men and women and have been ergonomically designed to ensure that comfort is paramount. They produce many different models of shoe, but all have a distinctively 'Camper' look to them. Love them or hate them, they are unique. The same can be said for Camper's new project - hotels.

The Camper Hotel in Barcelona sits deep in the heart of the area of Raval. This area is known for being slightly rough at times, but also increasingly trendy and popular amongst tourists. It is the home of many museums, art galleries, shop and bars. Casa Camper Hotel does not have a classic hotel facade. It lurks inside an old building, with shiny red sliding doors, that work well in contradiction with the oldness of the building. It is not easy to find the entrance door itself.

At the entrance there is an air of exclusivity that seems strangely at odds with the open-minded approach of the hotel. There is a key system ensuring that nobody can enter the lobby area of the building without a key for the hotel. This means that the lobby area is serene, which comes as a shock following the hustle-bustle of the street directly outside. A forest of bikes hang above your head. There is an air of an artist's studio or workplace, with large, functional maps of Barcelona along the walls. Across the back wall, large photographs of colourful Spanish shop facades have been printed onto the wall.

The hotel has taken a novel approach to dining. On the ground floor of the hotel there is an area that would usually be perceived to be the area where buffet breakfast is served.

This is all free of charge. During breakfast hours the buffet is extended and hot food is also available.

The MACBA Square
The MACBA Square

The hotel is based in the heart of the area of Raval. This area is popular for its numerous small art galleries, shops and bars. The hotel sits close to the MACBA and CCCB museums. These museums have a reputation for being creative with their exhibitions and offer everything from lectures, to film screenings and photography exhibitions.
