The Hotel Negresco Princess offers modern accommodation at a prime location in Barcelona’s L’Eixample district, a “showcase for Modernista architecture” with “a celebrated dining scene…high-end boutiques and wildly diverse nightlife” (Lonely Planet). Set amid traditional stone buildings at a bustling crossroads, the hotel occupies a striking 1970s property with a glass façade, and is located about a 5-minute walk from both Palau de la Musica Catalana concert hall and Plaça de Catalunya, the city’s central square, with its adjacent metro station. La Rambla landmark pedestrianised boulevard is 10 minutes’ walk away, whilst Parc de la Ciutadella, home to Barcelona Zoo and the Catalan Parliament, is around 15 minutes’ walk from the hotel. La Sagrada Familia, the iconic unfinished church designed by Gaudi, takes approximately 25 minutes to reach on foot.
A contemporary minimalist style characterises Hotel Negresco Princess’s public areas, which include an atrium-style lobby with a chic lounge bar. Guests can dine on seasonal local dishes in the hotel restaurant and enjoy snacks and drinks on the city-view rooftop terrace, which offers an infinity pool, a sun deck and hammocks. There’s also a gym, a sauna and complimentary morning yoga classes.
