One of the key elements of your holiday or event, is choosing the right accommodation. In a country whose key industry is tourism, choosing a hotel that best suits your needs can be quite easy. However finding the most original or special ones in the myriad of great hotels, will be a little harder. In today's post we will showcase a few of the most unconventional and cool hotels in Spain, that may just be that something special that you were looking for.
The choices in Barcelona are endless, however in juxtaposition to the modern and cosmopolitan Barcelona we wanted to showcase its rich heritage, and what better way to do it than to stay in Hotel Neri, 12th century boutique hotel, that has been awarded the distinction of Hotel Monument.
In Madrid we have opted for a recent addition to the VP Hotel chain and one that we are in love with, VP Plaza España Design Hotel 5*. As the name suggests, the wow factor in this hotel resides in the design and details throughout the entire hotel.
TIP: don't miss out the terrace on the 12th floor, from which you have the best view of Madrid skyline whilst enjoying a cocktail and listening to live music.
Located halfway between Madrid and Barcelona, literally in the middle of nowhere can be an ideal stop if you want to spend a night under a starry sky. The hotel also provides tours and activities to combine it with your stay.
TIP: we recommend booking some time in advance as it is usually fully booked.
The place to go for the most authentic peaceful retreat.
This renovated cottage located between Lugo and Asturias, is the charming location you were looking for a family getaway. We will let the photos speak for themselves!
TIP: plenty of activities, sightseeing, and most importantly great food!
A luxurious and unique oasis at the heart of Ibiza, with its chic and harmonious decoration it provides the perfect destination if you want to relax and experience “slow life” whilst being surrounded by nature and luxury. The family-run hotel has evolved and is now the very epitome of rustic chic, not only for a holiday but also for events and celebrations.
ALAVA, PAIS VASCO
In contrast to the authentic and charming boutique hotels we have recommended in the main cities, in La Rioja we have decided to recommend the striking and modernistic Hotel Marques de Riscal, a Marriot International Luxury Collection Hotel, designed by Frank O. Gehry (yep, you've heard right, the same architect that designed the Guggenheim in Bilbao). His playful approach to juxtaposition, between the tradition and the avant-garde, luxury and technology, etc Frank O. Genhry has managed to find the perfect balance!
P.S: Wine tasting is compulsory!
We wanted to go out with a bang, so we left this military stronghold for our last recommendation. Even after being carefully restored, there is still something special about sleeping in a fortified citadel in which patios and streets battles have been fought! This cultural heritage Hotel will be the perfect setting for an unforgettable break from daily routine!
If you didnt find your city on the list above, dont fret! Soon we will a post with more :D
Dont lose your wonder ✨
