Almost at the confluence of Las Ramblas, Plaza Catalunya, and the Gothic quarter, the upscale hip Hotel Pulitzer lays Barcelona’s heart down at your feet.
And true to Barcelona’s vibrant cool hotel scene, this establishment too brings to the table cutting edge design hiding behind a more traditional facade.
On entrance you’ll detect an unmistakable air of luxury created by decadent white leather, lacquered furniture, occasionally interspersed with carefully selected antiques. And that’s just the lobby.
Your room, similarly, posses the ambiance of upfront boldness. The floor is wooden and very shiny, the settee made of fine leather, and the bed draped in luxury cotton, all delivered in a contemporary palette of colours. As you would expect of a modern pad, items such as plasma TV and free Wifi come as standard.
