We felt like Barcelona was having a real moment right now. With technology companies, start-ups and innovative influencers descending on the city, you can feel a palpable shift towards the “new.” And hotels are absolutely part of this movement. When we began researching Barcelona, we didn’t expect to find this plethora of young, boutique and lifestyle properties that had come online within the last 12 months. Our partners, including Casa Bonay, Yurbban and Margot House, are new hotel concepts that reflect the creative, innovative scene in the city, and highlight the amazing Catalan talent that is propelling Barcelona forward. We pride ourselves on being ahead-of-the-curve futurists. Riding that wave inspires us, and we could not be more proud to stand alongside the local influencers, writers, photographers, hoteliers, restaurateurs, gallery owners, artists and tastemakers who are making Barcelona the exciting and vibrant city it is today.
