Taking its style cues from one of Europe’s fashion capitals, the Ilunion Almirante hotel in Barcelona puts guests right in the heart of the city, between beautiful medieval history and bustling, cosmopolitan bohemia.
Set on the Via Laietana, one of Barcelona’s most important and historic streets, guests at Ilunion Almirante find themselves on an avenue slicing between the famous Barri Gottic, Barcelona’s historic heart, and the ultra-fashionable restaurants and boutiques of the El Born district. Follow the road down to the sea and you’re in the heart of the city’s attractive waterfront, complete with excellent city beach and excellent aquarium.
If walking’s not your thing, ask at reception for bicycle hire, and good public transport links are easily accessible near the hotel, which also offers car hire facilities. If cycling’s not quite enough exercise for you, Ilunion Almirante boasts a top-quality fitness centre.
This is a good-quality city centre hotel, with lots of business travellers checking in. So the Wi-Fi is premium level, newspapers are laid on, room service and VIP rooms are available. If you haven’t yet been to Barcelona, the question has to be why not? While it’s Spain’s second city in size, in terms of cultural impact and international profile, Barcelona’s a major world city, cosmopolitan, exciting, culturally diverse and with a lifetime’s worth of interesting attractions to discover.
The Barri Gottic will give you some historical perspective. But it’s the twisting spires of Gaudi’s buildings, including the (unfinished as yet) La Sagrada church and Guel Parc, that are the city’s trademark look. To get the Barcelona vibe there’s no better place than El Born, the stylish, historic district that’s just across the road from Ilunion Almirante. Perfect for evening strolling before diving into a cool restaurant or bar, the area has the spirit of Barca off to a tee. Whether you’re returning to Barcelona or coming to this amazing city for the first time, Ilunion Almirante puts you right at the heart of the action and perfectly placed to explore to your heart’s content.
