The Barcelona EDITION is the true personification of an urban resort – both an intimate and sophisticated boutique-style environment, yet a destination in itself for the city’s best entertainment, food and drink.
As with all EDITION hotels, Barcelona will combine the personal, intimate, individualised and unique hotel experience that Schrager is known for.
“I am proud to further the global expansion of the brand with this incredibly exciting project in Barcelona.” Schrager says, “The city represents a great, cultural epi-center of Europe, making it an ideal location for the region’s newest EDITION.”
The Barcelona EDITION will boast an enviable locale in El Born, the city’s creative hub in the centre of the famed Ciutat Vella district.
Nestled between the cerulean waters of the Mediterranean Sea and l’Eixample neighbourhood – Barcelona’s renowned boutique shopping epicentre – the location is considered the beating heart of the city, now only made stronger with the energetic influence of The Barcelona EDITION.
Having undergone a complete metamorphosis by Carlos Ferrater Studio, what was once an outdated, underused property has been transformed into a contemporary, glass-fronted monument, acting as an urban mirror to reflect the city’s gothic architecture.
As with each of its predecessors, The Barcelona EDITION has all the trademarks of the EDITION brand: lasting comfort, extraordinary style and an exceptional level of service in a uniquely individual environment.
Under the creative direction of Ian Schrager, alongside the famed Spanish interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán, the hotel brings together the integrity and character of a historic environment with a simple, sophisticated design sensibility, creating a seamless blend of charisma and ease.
With 100 rooms and suites, three restaurants, two bars, a roof terrace with plunge pool and a buzzing lobby, the hotel offers a dynamic social hub where guests and visitors can work, relax, socialise and dine all under one roof.
