Get a taste for how the other half live with a stay at El Palauet Living Barcelona. This stunning 5-storey mansion dates back to 1906, when it was designed by architect Pere Falqués, a contemporary of Barcelona’s favourite son, Antoní Gaudí.
The property is in an excellent spot overlooking Passeig de Gràcia, on the corner of Avenida Diagonal. Nearby is a plethora of restaurants, bars and shops, and Gaudí’s La Pedrera and La Sagrada Familia are a short walk. The Picasso Museum is a 30-minute walk, or it’s a short metro ride from the Diagonal metro station round the corner.
There are six suites at El Palauet, all spanning 150-square-metres, with two bedrooms and bathrooms. The décor is minimalist, dominated by white and shades of grey, and there are original stucco ceilings, stained glass windows and a private balcony in each.
It’s the best of both a hotel and serviced apartment, with a fully equipped kitchen (expect an espresso machine, fridge with wine, drinks and milk, microwave, dishwasher and oven) as well as a front desk, and eager-to-please staff. Each suite is assigned a personal assistant who may cook breakfast or serve room service for guests in their apartment, book attraction tickets or help with high-tech light and entertainment systems. Wi-Fi is free throughout and small, well-trained dogs are welcome.
On-site facilities are at a minimum, but there is a rooftop Jacuzzi, massage room and lounge to relax in. The thing here though is really those beautiful suites. You won’t want to leave.
