El Palauet Living Barcelona
Located on Barcelona’s most exclusive boulevard at Passeig de Gracia 113, this five-story palatial mansion, built in 1906, is an extraordinary example of Modernisme (the sumptuous Catalan version of Art Nouveau). Its architect, Pere Falques, is also known for his ornate lampposts jutting from ceramic tile benches that are sidewalk landmarks at the Passeig de Gracia. He was a contemporary of Antoni Gaudi, whose acclaimed buildings are nearby. The facade of El Palauet reflects the great prosperity, creative genius, and unbridled imagination of the era. Palauet, in the Catalan language, is a small palau or palace. The hotel has six two-bedroom, two-bath apartment-style suites, extremely spacious (1,615 square feet), that accommodate up to four guests. Similar in layout, the suites feature a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, living room, stellar contemporary furnishings, and state-of-the-art technology throughout. The Passeig de Gracia Suites have balconies and face east overlooking the tree-lined boulevard. On the opposite side of the building, the Tibidabo Suites have a small private terrace and face west overlooking the Monastery of Pompeya and, in the distance, the top of Tibidabo Mountain. Guests enjoy utmost privacy at the rooftop spa and landscaped terrace with a panoramic view of this cultural capital on the Mediterranean. Spa facilities include a wooden Finnish sauna, treatment rooms and massage tables, outdoor Jacuzzi with hydro-massage beds, and solarium for sun tanning. The bar and al-fresco lounge area are ideal for yoga, relaxing, or friendly gatherings. A personal assistant is assigned to each suite throughout your stay. They are multi-lingual, knowledgeable about Barcelona tourism, museums, shopping, entertainment and dining, and can make all arrangements. A culinary expert can shop and stock your kitchen, and cook your breakfast (optional) with a wide menu selection (including Catalan specialties), and serve it on your dining table. The assistant can also coordinate a special chef to prepare your lunch or dinner en-suite, as well as recommend restaurants according to your preferences.
