Barcelona, that most fun loving and interesting of cities, doesn’t have that many secrets left, but the Circa 1905 Boutique Hotel is probably one of them, and we’re not sure for how long.
It’s name gives the fact away that it was built at the turn of the last century in the central district of Eixample, a few metres from the Paseo de Gracia and buildings such as Gaudi’s La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.
It is in a privileged location from which to enjoy the major works of Catalan modernism, great restaurants and exclusive shops.
It only has nine rooms which, though not huge, have all been renovated by mixing the old and the new. This means Egyptian cotton sheets and those comfortable mod cons such as WIFI, air conditions etc that today's exacting traveller can't do without.
The effect is a home from home like feel rather than staying in a fully fledged soulless hotel as such. Especially so as staff are exceedingly friendly and don’t treat you simply as a number.
There are four types of rooms available at the Circa 1905:
Provenza: Exterior rooms with balcony and view to the Paseo de Gracia and the Gaudi House known as "La Pedrera". Start at 100€ per night.
Mallorca: Exterior rooms with access to the terrace and garden view. From 120€ per night
Roselló: Interior room with view to an interior courtyard of the house. Starts at 80€
Provenza Suite: Consists of two Provenza rooms and a small living room, which makes it a great option for families. Can accommodate up to 6 people if required. Starts at 230€ per night.
Provenza Suite, made up of two rooms and a further room. Ideal for families of up to 6 persons/La Suite Provenza se compone de dos habitaciones provenza más la sala que puede verse al fondo, ideal para familias de hasta 6 miembros.
View of the garden from the Mallorca double/Vista de la terraza y el jardín desde el interior de las habitaciones Mallorca.
View of a Gaudi Building from the Provenza balcony/Vista de la Pedrera de Gaudí desde el balcón de las habitaciones Provenza.

A small list of things to do and see in magical Barcelona.
La Rambla and Raval

Vía Laietana to Parc de la Ciutadella:
Parallel to the Ramblas dense network of medieval streets.
During the day you can practice water sports at the Olympic Harbour. At night, it becomes one of Barcelona's most popular areas for nightlife.
The city centre during the 13th and 14th centuries, when the Catalans were expanding their trade and sea links throughout the Mediterranean. The church of Santa Maria del Mar,is the symbol of this maritime empire, a superb 14th century Gothic building. The Pg. del Born maintains some buildings with Gothic remains as well as a carefully restored 14th century palace.
Also known as the Mercat de Sant Josep (Saint Joseph's market), the Boqueria is famous for the quality of its products. It is located on the site of the courtyard of a church, officially called Sant Josep.
Tibidabo is the highest point of the Serra de Collserola hills, an extensive woodland area that has been converted into a metropolitan park 500 metres above sea level. There is an excellent panoramic view of the city from the top. The Temple Expiatori or Church of Atonement, the Amusement Park and the communications tower, 268 metres high, are silhouetted against the skyline.
