Since Barcelona was declared the host city for the GSMA Mobile World Congress in 2011, tourism has been steadily increasing in this Mediterranean city. In 2017, Barcelona reached a staggering 80 million visitors, and predictions are calling for even more this year. As the rules of supply and demand go, 2018 means that more hotels are opening in Barcelona, and we’re giving you the inside scoop! Here is the Akommo Top 5 New Hotels Barcelona 2018 edition!
The first of the New Hotels Barcelona 2018 edition is special in the sense that, well… it doesn’t exist. At least, not yet. This 100-room hotel will open its luxurious doors sometime in summer 2018, and it’s going to be spectacular. Located just next to the famous Barcelona market – the Mercat de Santa Caterina – this luxury hotel couldn’t be more central. It will offer a signature restaurant, club, and bespoke cocktail bar, as well as an outdoor pool and fitness centre. Keep this hotel on your radar - it’s going to be incredible!
The Hotel Rec opened its doors in January 2018, and has been buzzing ever since. It boasts an incredible location, just steps from the famous Arc de Triomf, as well as the Ciutadella Park. The rooftop offers spectacular views of the city, a swimming pool, and a relaxing space to enjoy their delicious breakfast. This adults-only hotel is already off to a promising start, and they’ve only just opened! The Núñez y Navarro Group guarantees a unique, enjoyable, and above all, comfortable experience while staying in any of their hotels in Barcelona.
Motel One has yet to celebrate their official inauguration, but they’ve been filling up since January 2018! Just a stone’s throw from the Ciutadella Park and a 20 minute walk to the beach, the location is just one of the many perks of this hotel. The Motel One brand is completely reshaping the concept of “motels” and offering tastefully-designed rooms starting at just 79€ a night. This brand new motel is proving that enjoyable accommodation experiences don’t have to come at a high price.
