Room with a view… When you are in Paris, you would probably want to have sizzling Eiffel Tower at your sight at night. If you are in Rome, let’s assume Spanish steps, Colosseum or Fontana di Trevi. But if you are in Barcelona, how magical it would be to be so close to the Sagrada Familia? Radisson Blue 1882 has that kind of view. It is the hotel you want to stay in when you are visiting this “jewel in the sun.”
El Cel Bar with spectacular views of the city’s skyline
Located in Barcelona’s elegant Gràcia district, Radisson Blu 1882 is just 450 meters away from the monumental Sagrada Familia, and about 1.5 km from the city’s another historical landmark, the Casa Milla or La Pedrera, the last private residence designed by Antoni Gaudi. This hotel’s location provides excellent connections to the city center, Passeig de Gràcia and Plaça de Catalunya. It is also just 2 km away from Parc Güell.
This modern hotel with cosmopolitan feel opened in May 2022. It boasts 182 cozy rooms, including two junior suites. The hotel also has an outdoor pool and a 24-hour fitness center.
The tasteful interior design of the common areas is the work of Lázaro Rosa-Violán, who describes himself as “painter by education, traveler by belief and interior designer by instinct.” Bringing the outdoors indoors is his signature design style, and his instinct got him to create an urban and contemporary place, with luxurious twist best showcased through a selection of designer pieces, leather upholstery and high-pile rugs.
Radisson Blu 1882 has four restaurants and bars in total: Restaurant El Bosc, El Bosc Terrace Bar, Bobò Bar, and the rooftop El Cel Bar, where guests may enjoy spectacular views of the city skyline.
El Bosc Restaurant
This is an eco-friendly property, being a home to more than 4,000 plants, including an 80m² vertical ecosystem of more than 3,000 plants in the El Bosc Terrace Bar, which can filter 10kg of dust per year and generate oxygen for 80 people. The hotel has also earned LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification as a Gold Green Building, a factor that makes it the perfect option for the environmentally conscious traveler.
El Bosc Restaurant – Terrace
The rooftop, El Cel Bar terrace and pool are the perfect place to relax after a long day of sightseeing or business meetings. It offers spectacular views of the Antoni Gaudí’s fascinating architecture.
As Barcelona is one of Spain’s major business centers, this new hotel has 120 square meters of the corporate meeting and event space with the capacity to host up to 120 people, as well as 64 underground parking spaces for guests.
