Novotel opens in downtown Barcelona


The Novotel Barcelona City is in an ideal spot, between the old city and the sea, and a stone’s throw from Torre Agbar and Sagrada Familia.



The vital statistics: 264 rooms (incl. 22 junior suites), 1 restaurant, 1 bar and 4 meeting rooms. The nice-to-have extra features: 1 hammam, 1 gym and 1 simply spectacular rooftop terrace (incl. a bar and swimming pool) overlooking Barcelona.


Designed for comfort


The Novotel Barcelona City was fashioned to relax guests from the drawing-board stage.


Novotel used interior architect Patrick Genard's talent to encapsulate its new Designed for Natural Living spirit in the Novotel Barcelona City. And that was exactly what he did, intertwining the environmental values that this hotel brand cherishes into the Catalan capital's cultural hustle and bustle.

The decoration is a flawless blend of nature's four elements. Water, fire, earth and air, in other words, intermingle elegantly in the hotel's various areas. Patrick Genard explains, "Humankind has always lived together with these four elements. Cities, however, have built artificial barriers that thwart our interaction with them. The decoration in the Novotel Barcelona City helps us to break down those barriers between beings and to dispel the distance between them."


This notion of a reconciliation between all forms of life stretches beyond the atmosphere that this designer has created, and shines through the works of art and decorative objects stylishly sprinkled around the hotel.


The areas that patrons enjoy during their experience in this hotel embody the various elements.

- Water: the marine silhouettes and hushed shades of blue light create an atmosphere quite unlike anything else at the bar

- Fire: the kitchen, the Le Claravia restaurant's throbbing heart, is the hearth

- Earth: besides being designed for ultimate convenience, the meeting rooms are clothed in soothing, uplifting colours

- Air: the gym, lounge bar, terrace and swimming pool are soaked in Barcelona's amazing light
