This week I want to tell you about one of the best hotels in Barcelona, The Fairmont, commonly known as the Juan Carlos Hotel and why you should try it yourselves!
THE HOTEL: FAIRMONT BARCELONA
I love Barcelona, I think is one of the best cities in the world and the more I travel the more I realise I want to have my base here. However, no matter how amazing the city is, you always need a way to disconnect. When you need a city getaway, what do you do? At the Fairmont I find my mini escape within the city, an urban resort with amazing gardens, spa, pool and one of the best equipped gyms.
This weekend I had the chance to also stay at the hotel, recently renovated, and I must tell you it has been a wonderful experience.
I have stayed at the suite 1210, its like an apartment, totally new, super modern cool style. With a living room, one bedroom and two bathrooms, the best of it all are the huge windows that show the best views in Barcelona, you can see the Polo Club and all the horses jumping around, and you can also the the Camp Nou stadium ! Any Barça fans around here? 🙂
WHAT TO DO:
Perfect city escape, what can you do here? Enjoy wonderful Barcelona, you can read my Barcelona tips here . At the hotel you can do many things, chill at the pools, go to the Spa, the gym, amazing trainers will keep you fit 😉
For example you want to spend a couple of days in Barcelona but you also love to have your space, gardens, you want to do some sport etc the Fairmont is your place to be. The Fairmont is associated with the Polo Club as their are in the neighbouring location, so when you stay at the hotel you can use their facilities, anyone up for a tennis game?
WHERE TO EAT:
The Hotel has a new restaurant called B24 where I enjoyed their Valentines dinner special, a set menu composed of delicious foods including the Makis in love which are sushi shaped in a heart way, jamón, sea scallops, my favourite a ravioli with foie, grilled fish with risotto, a sirloin beef steak plus two different desserts … And the best all of it, served with Veuve Clicquot champagne!
For Breakfast I called in room service, The Barcelona menu, consisting of pastries, tea, coffee, orange juice and a hot dish. I ordered scrambled eggs and green tea, big plus to their exquisite green tea. Having the best views of Barcelona while you have breakfast is the best way to start the day!
Isn’t it a great idea to spend Valentines in the hotel? Why not surprise him/her?
