Hotel Grums Review

Tucked off in the Mediterranean corner of Poble Sec on the far side of the Raval, this small but impeccable address in its first year open has much to offer. Rooms are new and bright decorated with black-and-white photography and white-laquer surfaces. Each room has its own theme—the Mediterranean, the Palau de la Música Catalana, Sagrada Familia, and so on—with brief explanations in Catalan, Spanish, and English. Room 601 is the best in the house, with a huge terrace overlooking interior gardens and patios. Families or couples with babies have their own dedicated rooms. The spa, fitness room, breakfast room, restaurant, and bar are all equally functional and cheery. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable about the hotel and the neighborhood.

    Hotel Grums Review

    Our stay at the Grums was a happy surprise from start to finish. The hotel is in an interesting and unusual location, across the Raval in Poble Sec, which has some wonderful restaurants. The hotel staff was cheerful and helpful, the rooms are tastefully designed and decorated, and the breakfast was delicious. The walk over to the Rambla del Raval the next morning was a ten-minute stroll past the lovely pre-Romanesque Sant Pau del Camp church, Barcelona's earliest Christian church. The Raval, often described as sketchy, was cosmopolitan and a little wild and woolly, but never dangerous. We would stay at the Hotel Grums again happily.
