Casa Fuster Review

This hotel offers one of two chances (the other is the Hotel España) to stay in an Art Nouveau building designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, architect of the sumptuous Palau de la Música Catalana. His last project, built in 1911 at the bottom of the village of Gràcia, shows a tendency toward the more classical Noucentisme that followed the decorative delirium of the Moderniste movement. The rooms and public spaces reinforce the Moderniste theme with Gaudí-designed chairs, trencadis (polychrome broken-tile mosaic) floors, and Art Nouveau–inspired lamps, door handles, and fixtures. In the lobby, undulating lavender sofas echo the arched windows. Rooms are similarly unrestrained, with striped linens and cobalt-blue chairs. The restaurant serves fine Mediterranean cuisine; the hotel's Café Vienés was a historic meeting place for Barcelona's movers and shakers of the early 20th century.

    Casa Fuster Barcelona

    This is a neighborhood gem. It is one of the few hotels that let you experience the great architecture of Barcelona fom inside its own walls. It is in a great location that is quiet, safe and close to the metro for easy exploring. The staff is very accomodating. The rooms are a little heavy in decor, but the rooftop bar and pool offer a quiet getaway from the hectic city.
