Review Granados 83 Hotel, Barcelona

Page Content

Granados 83 Hotel
From the exterior of Granados 83 Hotel you would be forgiven for thinking that you had found yourself on Ocean Drive in Miami. Its salmon pink marble pillars, glass arch and twenties style signage all have a distinctly Art Deco feel. The hotel interior is decidedly subtler - dim lighting sets the tone for the hotel's style. The floor is marbled with a bottle green glass section running down its centre, there are black leather couches and fur rugs. The front desk is backed by a wall of dark brown crocodile skin leather and has a canopy of back lit grey glass.

The dark shades used on the hotel are given a brighter feel with the use of large amounts of glass - the hotel's façade has large windows. The hotel elevators are also glass and allow guests to see each floor of rooms as they travel up the building. This allows a relatively small hotel to have an open feeling.

The hotel is located at the heart of Eixample. It is a 10 - 15 minute walk from major locations such as Passeig de Gràcia, Plaça de Catalunya and the Ramblas. It is also a two-minute walk from Rambla de Catalunya - a leafy part pedestrianized street that is littered with café and restaurant terraces - a lovely area to while away a sunny Barcelona afternoon.
