A prize for the Pulitzer– the Pulitzer prize! Ok, that’s for books but this hotel also deserves some sort of award. All the right boxes are ticked for any discerning guest looking for a special stay in Barcelona that takes in modern design and decor.
Location: It is right by the Plaça Catalunya and five minutes from Passeig de Grácia (think Trafalgar Square in London or Times Square in New York and you get the drift). Design shops, museums and some of Gaudi’s famous buildings are easily reached from here.
Design: The building itself may be of historical interest but a luminous renovation has done wonders to the interior and a clever use of material has added an element of fun. The ground floor/lobby is enhanced by a reception desk that has been converted from Sicilian alter. There are also many multicoloured floral arrangements and modern paintings to add even more light and colour.
Style: Rooms are located throughout all the five floors of the Pulitzer and of course continue the modern trendsetting aspect of the public areas. Modern conveniences, such as WIFI are ubiquitous and though some rooms may be a bit on the small side for some, people they are never less than extremely comfortable and stylish.
Cuisine: The cuisine of the “Visit” Restaurant, is based on natural Mediterranean ingredients and delicious. This alone would be reason enough for a visit, so to speak. But its structure is one of the highlights of the hotel. It has a glass ceiling and glassed front wall, courtesy of the fact that it is a converted greenhouse in a previous life. It definitely adds another dimension to a meal here.
There may be cheaper hotels around, but like the city of Gaudi itself, the Hotel Pulitzer is truly sophisticated and cool.
