Full description
Experience vibrant, vintage designer style and cool comfort in the beating heart of a Catalan city that truly has it all.

Let's face it, who hasn't considered a mini-break (or even a maxi-break!) to Barcelona at some point or other?  

Spirited and colourful, Barna - as the locals call it - is a thriving city with a charming town-like feel, beautifully bordered by a golden beach. Whatever your holiday preference, from shopping to sightseeing to beach-lazing, you will find it perfectly met here.

Naturally, you'll need somewhere authentic to rest your head...somewhere that's just as artistic, lively and vigorous as Barcelona itself. With its Catalan art-nouveau styled lobby, artfully decorated rooms, and un-touristy position in the city's Quadrat D'Or (Golden Square) heritage district, Retrome Barcelona is your genuine holiday haven.

Lovingly designed and decorated, Retrome Barcelona's inviting rooms and suites are a true feast for the eyes (as well as your weary feet!), with each featuring soft, downy beds and plenty of creature comforts. The Eco Retro rooms are practical and chic, comprising twelve and half square metres of living space - ideal for couples on the go.

For those seeking slightly more space, not to mention a terrace or balcony for morning coffee and conversation, the Double Vintage rooms, each featuring a king-sized bed and a stylish seating area, are perfect for welcoming in all that famous Spanish sunshine.

The Retro Romance and Vintage Apartment Suites are ideal for couples with something to celebrate - life included! This arty space comprises twenty-five square metres of light-filled lavishness, complete with beautiful Mediterranean terrace, private kitchenette with Italian espresso machine, an opulent bathroom and a spacious lounge area.

However, the Royal Duplex Apartment is the real jewel in the crown here.  Sixty square metres of decadent space includes a private patio with outdoor shower (ideal for freshening up after a day at the beach), 24-hour concierge service and a generous sleeping floor.

If you can tear yourselves away from your sumptuous space, the Retrome Café and Lounge is a lively, convivial and warmly welcoming space to relax and socialise with other guests, swapping holiday stories as you enjoy tasty tapas and Rioja. On sunny afternoons, the communal terrace garden makes for a perfect post-siesta catch-up point!

Venturing away from your heavenly hotel, you'll find plenty to rest your gaze upon. Retrome Barcelona is situated on a street that leads straight to the sea in one direction, and mountains in the other - with stunning period buildings and fine Catalan architecture dotted along your way.

Just five minutes from your hotel is the elegant Passeig de Gràcia shopping street - an utter delight for those who love to browse - while the breathtaking church and museum of La Sagrada Familia is only ten minutes from the hotel. Tours can be arranged directly, along with a tapas tasting extravaganza that leads you through some of the best hidden restaurants around.

(And if your stylish stay in Barcelona whets your appetite for a vibrant city break that's also delightfully off the beaten tourist track - Retrome Rome may just satisfy that craving!)

So come and experience all that unique Catalan charm, in a unique hotel that just begs to be enjoyed. Olé!
