H10 Art Gallery, a hotel dedicated to contemporary art
On 8 May, 2014, H10 Hotels opened a new hotel in Barcelona, the H10 Art Gallery, thus increasing its presence in the city where it now has a total of 10 establishments.
The hotel has a fantastic location on Carrer Enric Granados in the emblematic Eixample district, one of Barcelona's best areas, just a couple of blocks away from Barcelona's most thriving shopping hub, Passeig de Gràcia.
This 4-star superior hotel is dedicated to the world of art, specifically contemporary art, and houses original works and prints by internationally-renowned artists such as Joan Miró, Miquel Barceló, Jordi Alcaraz and Fernando Alday. The hotel oozes art and cutting-edge design in equal measure while showcasing art as another of the city's attractions.
The ground floor contains the lobby, where customers can admire a great variety of works of art, as well as the Front Desk, the Pop Art cafeteria and the Modern Art restaurant. The lobby, which is lit through a large skylight, stands out for its spaciousness. Paintings and sculptures are dotted throughout the hotel, making it an authentic artistic treasure. The ground floor is also home to a large garden with outdoor terrace, presided over by a century-old olive tree and offering a haven of tranquillity after a busy day's sightseeing in Barcelona.
As regards its culinary offerings, the hotel includes the Modern Art restaurant, decorated in shades of white and with large glass doors that lead directly onto the terrace, which serves a delicious complete breakfast. For business customers the hotel also offers three meeting rooms, one of which has exterior windows, equipped with everything you need to hold work meetings and private events.
Each one of the hotel's floors pays homage to a celebrated contemporary artist: Joan Miró, Antoni Tàpies, Andy Warhol, Henri Matisse, Roy Lichtenstein and Francis Bacon. To recreate the world of each artist, the furnishings in the corridors, rooms and bathrooms have been designed to reflect their work.
A panoramic lift with views of the courtyard will take you up to the hotel's 91 rooms, equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay including free Wi-Fi, a Nespresso coffee machine and iPhone dock. The choice of rooms includes the spacious Junior Suite with views of the quiet Enric Granados street as well as the Superior Rooms with their own private terrace.
On the hotel's top floor you'll find the terrace with plunge pool and sun loungers, a small city-centre oasis where you can get away from it all while you lie in the sun or cool off in the pool.
