6 hotel lobbies worth visiting in Barcelona | First Impressions

It’s a sunny saturday afternoon in Barcelona and we decided to go hotel-hopping and capture our first impressions.

We didn’t really have an specific route, we went from La Rambla until the end of Paseo de Gracia and visited several hotels. It’s a been a pleasant  experience entering so many different worlds in one afternoon!

Hotel guests come many times from far away to see the wonders that the city has to offer, a lobby is the cover of their travel journey and the first thing they are going to see when they arrive.

Hotels know this and they put a big effort to offer the best lobby, according to their concept and general design. They also know they have clients with expectations that they can not risk to lose.

Hotel Pulitzer | Regina Hotels Group


Hotel Espanya | Condes Hotels Group


Barceló Raval | Barceló Hotels & Resorts Group


Hotel 1898 | Nuñez i Navarro Hotels Group


Bagués | Derby Hotels Group

We were explained that the building of Bagues Hotel used to be a jewelry workshop back in 1850. In the second floor they have a small delightful exhibition of original pieces and designs from the founder of the firm Josep Masriera.


Le Méridien | Starwood Hotels Group


While walking through the lobby of Le Méridien on one of the tables there was an old stereograph that immediately drew our attention … and so did we!


So when you are in Barcelona we recommend you to visit these hotels to experience the different atmospheres, art and interior design they have.

    Nice post! I’m living in Barcelona but haven’t really visited hotel lobbies. I’ll definitely do it this weekend.

    It’s nice to see now how hotel lobbies are accesible even for non-guests to be there. I do it often with my boyfriend, we take our computers and work at a lobby over a nice coffee 🙂  just for a different working environment.
