We like calm, simplicity, honesty, quality without the frills, welcoming each guest by name... We like to represent the style of Barcelona: Mediterranean, dynamic, diverse, a combination of history and modernity.
Here you won't find superfluous design, social events, groups, noise... You won't find large or excessive facilities (we don't have a restaurant, spa or pool).
We prefer to focus on the most important thing: a boutique hotel with personality, designed for individual travelers, with spacious, impeccable rooms and high quality materials, elegant but not sophisticated, peaceful, where, the second you cross the threshold, you'll be swept away by the Rambla itself.

Built in 1910 with a classic, stately style, especially evident on the facade, the building looks spectacular when it is illuminated at night. It started out as the residence of a typical bourgeois family and then became the head office of the newspapers "Las noticias" and "El correo catalán". In 1945, the owners at that time (the Lleó-Juanola family) transformed it into a hotel.

We are on the lively and unique Rambla itself, but as soon as you cross the threshold of the hotel, you will enter into an oasis of calm:
