Overview



The Wilson Boutique Hotel is like a high end resort with an elevator, located in the heart of one of Barcelona's districts, full of commercial activity and stores, not too far from Paseo de Gracia and the Università Politecnica. The hotel offers its clients a warm greeting and the services of a highly professional staff.

At the reception, open 24 hours, you can ask for all sorts of information, book guided tours and excursions to the city's most interesting sites, rent a car or a bicycle and use the laundry service and luggage storage.

The 3 stars Hotel in Barcelona Wilson Boutique Hotel's 54 splendid rooms stand out due to their spaciousness and brightness. All the rooms are outward-facing, fully soundproof and decorated and equipped with the latest trends.

The hotel has spacious Junior Suites and Suites for three people. At Wilson Boutique Hotel you will enjoy a pleasant stay in Barcelona, either if you make a business trip or if you are enjoying a lovely holiday.

Ramblas and Plaza Catalunya are less than 10 minutes by car while Paseo de Gracia is easy to reach. Paseo de Gracia is probably the most elegant street in Barcelona. Jewelry stores and boutiques offer the chance for some high quality shopping while you walk among the buildings and architecture, the children of the Modernism movement. Among wrought iron street lamps, tapas bars and old cafes, you'll admire the extraordinary Manzana de la Discordia, three buildings on a single block where Catalonian modernists worked their magic.

Antoni Gaudì is the artist who, more than anyone else, changed the face of Barcelona. Casa Battlò and La Pedrera have winding profiles that banish straight lines, creating an extraordinary effect with sculpted stone, images from pre-history, dragon scales, statues, and decorations made from ceramics and wrought iron. During the summer evening, climb among the chimneys on La Pedrera's roof and let your imagination get away from you. It's worth it. From Wilson Boutique Hotel, you can quickly reach Plaza Catalunya and from there, walk down Las Ramblas, one of the city's busiest districts. The heart of Barcelona is famous the world over, a favorite spot for millions of tourist that, about one kilometer long, runs through the very center of the pedestrian commercial center, enlivened by the numerous street artists with their street performances.

To the east of Las Ramblas is the Barrio Gotico, the old center of Barcelona. Famous for its narrow alleys and tiny squares, the city's old political center is full of stores, bars and ancient buildings. If you go further afield, walking past La Ribera, you'll discover a brilliant example of Catalonian gothic in the mesmerizing Santa Maria al Mar Church and the incredible Palazzo della Musica Catalana, a real treasure. On the other side, El Raval has undergone restorations in recent years and is now home to the MACBA Museum of Modern Art, the Centro di Cultura Contemporanea and numerous art galleries; there is also one of Gaudì's masterpieces: Palau Guell.

At the end of Ramblas, near the statue of Columbus that points to the sea, you'll find Port Vell. The old public port area was renovated for the 1992 Olympics and is now the center of Maremagnum full of stores, bars and clubs and the amazing aquarium, that can be reached from Rambla de Mar. Don't miss the Barceloneta, the ancient fisherman's district, now an extremely modern commerical center. If you want to take in some breathtaking views of Barcelona, don't forget to go to Parc Guell and hike up to the small cross, climb the high towers of Sagrada Familia or visit Montjuic park.

Review:   Recommended for: Good value for seeing the sites

Pros: The Wilson is such a sweet little boutique hotel. It has a perfect location for seeing all the sights in Barcelona. They have some good value rates at certain times of year and you will need to book early for this popular hotel. The rooms are cozy and have all the stuff. Including air conditioning which is an important thing for Barcelona. The rooftop dining for breakfast is a big hit with my clients! This hotel is small, 54 rooms. Very, very popular.

Cons: Only negative is that it books up really fast!
