Fodor's Expert Review Murmuri Barcelona

Rambla de Catalunya 104, Barcelona, Catalonia 08008, Spain See on Map Fodor's Choice

A level of refinement and elegance is pervasive from the moment you enter this chic boutique. Small in stature but large in reputation, this property prides itself on personalized service, and an unbeatable location on a popular thoroughfare that connects the entire city. Housed in a building that dates to 1892, you can still see original pieces in the classic spiral staircase and refurbished ceilings.

The best rooms in the hotel are the residences. Designed for longer-term stays, the fully equipped apartments have kitchens, laundry facilities, and the utmost privacy.


Standard rooms come with beige carpets, off-gray walls, and some of the most comfortable beds in Barcelona. Guests will also find Bluetooth speakers for their music needs and terraces that face the main street below.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The Lavazza coffee in the room is not complimentary, but it can be if you book directly through their site or just treat everyone really nicely. Lesson: always be nice.


A mixed bag through the hotel, you’ll find either shower/tub combos or solo showers. Towel heaters only work in the winter in case you need extra warmth and there are shaving mirrors and Argan bath products throughout.


The small rectangular lobby is flanked with velvety banquettes and dark tones of black oak and marble. On either side of the lobby is the hotel’s main bar and restaurant.

The hotel has an exhibition space where they rotate artists, pop-up shops, and more every month.


There’s no pool, but guests who stay here have full access to the Majestic Hotel’s five-star facilities.


Murmuri doesn’t have a dedicated spa, but you can order in-room massages, facials, and more. You’ll also have access to the Majestic Hotel’s spa facilities.


There’s no gym, but again, the Majestic Hotel is open for guests to use.


Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, el Passatge is the hotel’s Mediterranean restaurant with an outdoor patio and killer lunch and dinner specials.

The hotel also has a stunning rooftop terrace with endless views, cushy couches, and a food service that goes perfectly with sunset.


On the right side of the lobby is Bar Marfil, a brooding cocktail lounge with deep leather furnishings and a stellar cocktail program. One Thursday per month, the bar has after-work specials.


Getting Around

Just outside the hotel, Rambla Catalunya is a bustling street filled with cafés, bars, and boutiques. Metro access is also close by, about a 2-minute walk to the Diagonal stop. The hotel is next to Passeig de Gràcia, a major thoroughfare with designer shops and high-end restaurants and just south of Avinguda Diagonal which is the longest and busiest street cutting across the entire city.


Just next to the hotel is Passatge de la Concepció, an alleyway that features some excellent restaurants like Petit Comite (1-minute walk) a Michelin-rated joint with modern Catalan cuisine and Boca Grande (1-minute walk) for amazing seafood.


Also in Passatge de la Concepció is Boca Chica (1-minute walk), Boca Grande’s sister spot that serves out-of-this-world cocktails. Just next door is Impur (1-minute walk), another creative cocktail joint with a hip crowd.


This small boutique prides itself on a very high level of service, and they deliver in every way imaginable. While you won’t find a dedicated, gym, spa, or pool here, you do get full access to the Majestic Hotel’s facilities that are only a 5-minute walk away. The location is also great as there are outdoor cafés lining the street just outside as well as Michelin-level dining and high-end cocktailing right around the corner. If you want your hotels to be quaint and personal and private, you can’t really go wrong here.
