Cotton House Hotel
Barcelona is one of my favourite cities in the world, and before the craziness of Coachella I managed to sneak away for a couple of days and really take some time to relax. Driving through Barcelona I was reminded of just how much I love this city, with the lifestyle and the architecture being so different from everything I am used to. When I pulled up at The Cotton House Hotel, I knew I was in for a treat, the place has a boutique feel to it (which I love) but with the grandeur you would expect from a hotel with 5*’s.
The building itself has a rich history, originally built in the 19th century on the orders of members of the Spanish Aristocracy, it was later transformed into the headquarters of the Cotton Producers Guilt. The team who have since transformed it into the incredible space that it is today, worked hard to preserve many of the original features of the buildings, including an imposing marble staircase, and have managed to totally preserve the spirit of this amazing building. The dining room area leads out into a gorgeous patio (perfect for drinks and tapas), and if you take the lift to the top floor you will find a pool with views overlooking one of Barcelona’s most famous landmarks, La Sagrada Familia. It is true that a hotel really is only as good as the team that work there, and honestly I have never experienced such dedicated service, every member of staff at The Cotton House Hotel went above and beyond to make my stay as comfortable as possible, and that completely enriched my experience.
The hotel is full of little quirks and charms, which the exceptionally friendly staff are more than happy to walk you though if you are interested. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and the food is excellent. I honestly could not find one flaw in this blemish less and beautiful hotel.
