Cotton House Hotel
Cotton House Hotel was an unexpected surprise. My man took me to this new hotel in Barcelona, an old building reformed exquisitely keeping up the tradition and history. Beautiful spaces, delicious food, the nicest cotton bed sheets and a great service.
Andreu Canals, the hotel manager, gave us a cozy welcome starting out with a special Gin-Tonic cocktail, house recipe, a mix of citrus with silver powder; followed by bumping up to a personalized message wrote in our room on the toilet’s mirror.
We explored every single corner in the building. Each room surprised me more than the previous, and even more when I was told the story of the ‘cottony’ family that is still behind this new luxury hotel. Lázaro Rosa-Violán is the interior designer who has transformed this neo-classic style building from the 19th century into a hotel, respecting the value of things with tradition. I like how his eclecticism lives with old materials, especially with the original wooden floors that I’m so passionate about.
Enjoying a night without our baby and sleeping in a “cotton bed” allowed us to have a long sleep. It was 10.30am already when we decided to go for breakfast, it’s one of the things I love the most when I’m staying in a hotel. The Cotton House’s is a total food display that we enjoyed as kids. It ended up becoming a brunch since it was getting close to lunch time. After eating fruits, natural juice, Spanish omelette, bread with tomato and Iberian loin, I allowed myself a whim and I added a crêpe as a dessert.
The great location and the wonderful hotel terrace make it a good choice for meeting with friends or having a working lunch during the summer.
