MONUMENT HOTEL * * * * * GL
Monument Hotel 5 * GL is a modern and luxurious hotel located in the heart of the emblematic Paseo de Gracia, the most elegant shopping avenue in Barcelona and one of the most exclusive in the world and the center of tourist, cultural and business life of the city. The hotel is housed in an imposing Neo-Gothic mansion, Casa Enric Batlló, built between 1895 and 1896 by the pre-modernist architect Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas, commissioned by the industrialist Enric Batlló. The facade of the building, one of the most artistic and aesthetic of Paseo de Gracia, is surprising for its brilliant polychromy, a result of the combination of different materials such as brickwork, stone, ceramics and wrought iron. The project for the rehabilitation of Monument Hotel is the work of the architects Oscar Tusquets, before the project, and Carlos Bassó and Tote Moreno, in collaboration with interior designer Mercè Borrell. The combination of design spaces and modernist elements, the emphasis on light and the combination of noble materials and textures make Monument Hotel a timeless luxury hotel with its own personality.
