Welcome to Hotel Nouvel Barcelona, Built in the unique Modernist style of Barcelona, this hotel is located in the city´s heart, in amongst the monuments and exclusive shops of Plaça Catalunya and La Rambla. Dating from the late 19th century and converted to a hotel in 1917, making it one of Barcelona´s oldest, the building retains many period features such as ornate ceilings, lamps of cast bronze and crystal, marble floors and colour schemes immortalised by Roca-Sastre. The location just off Plaça Catalunya, the city´s transport hub, makes the hotel a great base to explore La Rambla, the Gothic Quarter and the upmarket boutiques of Passeig de Gracia.
