Award-winning hotel chain, Room Mate Hotels, has now opened its fourth hotel in Barcelona.
Room Mate Anna is situated in Passeig de Gràcia, better known as the Quadrat d’Or, the ‘Golden Square’ of Catalonian modernism and is the heart of life and culture in Barcelona.
The hotel has been designed by renowned interior designer and antiques expert, Lorenzo Castillo, who has previously worked with the group on Room Mate hotels in New York and Florence.
Lorenzo’s interior scheme reflects the Catalonian Mediterranean roots of Barcelona and pays tribute to the sea, the sun and the tropics. Bursts of bold colour incorporate the hues of the Catalonian landscape, from the turquoises and aquamarines of Palamós, to the earthy and green tones of the cypress trees of EmpordÃ .
In the rooms, the Mediterranean Sea is the central theme, as seen by the use of bright red Trapani coral and giant shells. Wardrobe doors and headboards are fashioned from Venetian blinds and slatted shutters, while the coloured marble floors add a further design dimension.
With 23 establishments and a presence in six international markets, the chain plans to open eight additional hotels throughout 2016 and 2017 in cities that include Rotterdam, Florence, Rome, Paris and Madrid. This will allow the company to grow its size and reach a total of more than 4,000 rooms, while establishing its global presence.
Guests of Room Mate Anna can enjoy the services found in all Room Mate Hotels, such as breakfast served until noon and the innovative free WiFi Service WiMate, which provides free WiFi for guests not only in the hotel itself but also throughout the city.
“Barcelona represents one of our key business areas and the city is a global tourism destination, which is why we are firmly committed to opening two further hotels by 2017,” comments Kike, president and founder of Room Mate Hotels says.
