Rest Your Head

Universally regarded as the avant-garde capital of Spain, Barcelona is a natural location for Ian Schrager’s growing EDITION empire. Hence, somewhat unsurprisingly, since opening its glamorous doors just a few months ago, Barcelona’s most awaited hotel unveiling of 2018 has already carved out a unique niche as an elegant urban resort in an unforgettable location, offering intimate and sophisticated boutique-style guest rooms alongside seductive and well-considered common spaces.
Located on the edge of El Born – the city’s creative hub in the centre of famed Ciutat Vella – Spain’s first EDITION property is situated in the most historic part of Barcelona, an area positively vibrating with life, style and energy and considered by many to be the beating heart of the city.
Under the creative direction of Ian Schrager alongside famed Spanish interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán, what was once an outdated and underused 70s building has been transformed by Carlos Ferrater Studio into a contemporary, glass-fronted hospitality haven.
Home to 100 impeccably turned-out tech-savvy bedrooms and suites, The Barcelona EDITION is crowned with a gorgeous 10th-floor urban rooftop terrace, plunge pool and cocktail bar – all breezy white fabrics and lush greenery – which has already become a firm favourite with hipster Barcelonians.
Three restaurants, two more bars (including a fresh incarnation of The London EDITION’s award-winning Punch Room), a yoga and meditation studio, and a 24-hour state-of-the-art smoked oak skin-lined gym complete a dynamic social hub, where guests and visitors alike can work, relax, socialise and dine all under one beautifully executed roof.
