Why it’s worth traveling for…
Kimpton Hotels’ first property in Spain, the stylish Kimpton Vividora — tucked away on a quiet pedestrian street — is located in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter. Located next to Las Ramblas and within walking distance to Barceloneta beach, the hotel borrows its modern design inspiration from stylish, upscale Barcelona apartments. The palette of warm, earthy tones alongside touches of rich Mediterranean blue gives a nod to the city’s coastal setting, while locally designed furniture brings elements of the neighborhood inside. Sink into an impossibly comfortable bed and take in the artful design elements — natural woods, sleek marble, subtle graphic motifs, and bold tiles.
Walk the labyrinth streets of the Gothic Quarter; take in the art and architecture — from the Sagrada Familia by genius architect Antoni Gaudí and the Picasso Museum — to MACBA in El Raval and Frank Gehry’s Golden Fish overlooking the seafront. Check out the music: pachanga and Catalan jazz coming from the iconic Razzamatazz Discoteca, and return to the hotel for a relaxing massage and treatments in the Wellness Room.
