If you are into city tripping but you can appreciate the piece and quiet, I would totally recommend staying at the Pullman hotel. It's location is definitely a 9/10. It is right next to the sea and you are only 3 metrostops away from the city center. So you have the options to either hang around at the beach or go and discover the dazzling city of Barcelona.
This was by the way one of the reasons why I loved living in this city. You can escape the touristy crowds by just taking a 15 min metroride to the end of the coast. Barcelona has these amazing quiet spots where you can totally zone out.
The location is not only ideal during the day but also for nightlife. A couple of Barcelona's mos know clubs are right across from the hotel. These clubs are not my preffered ones but if you are in the mood for a fun night, they'll definitely do the trick! And if you are not, you still have the bathtub and roomservice.
This location + the amazing rooftop bar with a pool = an amazing view over the entire coast! It truly was to die for but more about this in my video! (Coming up soon!)
Now let's talk about one of my favourite things in life: food. The breakfast at Pullman was -without a doubt- one of the best I ever had! Soooo many options. I was regretting the fact that I didn't get up earlier to spend 4 hours at the buffet so I could try every-single-thing. But 30 minutes also did the trick. Fully charged and ready to discover the city.
If you guys end up booking here, make sure you say hi from me to the super friendly staff!!
